CAN CBD PROTECT YOU FROM COVID-19?by Dan Overgage
The year 2019 presented quite the challenge to the world. The spread of the virus known as SARS-CoV-19, ‘coronavirus’ or COVID saw countries locking down as a preventative measure to stop the spread of the virus, with varying degrees of effectiveness. With huge variation in how coronavirus affects different people, there has been somewhat of a scramble to find effective therapeutic treatments for it.

HEALING PROPERTIES OF CBD OILS
The roles attributed to the endocannabinoid system are that of ‘eat, sleep, relax, forget and protect’ and CBD has been shown to affect pathways involved in all of those aspects.
EAT - Treatment with CBD can result in a change of appetite, and can affect weight loss and/or gain.
SLEEP -The CB1 receptor that CBD acts on plays a role in inducing sleep, an essential part of our daily life that if you regularly miss, can result in death. Useful for insomnia.
RELAX - The presence of CBD appears to reduce the breakdown of a compound called ‘anandamide’ - an endocannabinoid known as ‘the bliss chemical’ which helps with pain relief. The endocannabinoid system is also responsible for regulating neurotransmitters - the body’s chemical messengers - reducing the amount that gets used, and clearing them away - this translates to relaxed muscles and reduced spasticity. Useful against chronic pain, and muscle spasm and/or stiffness.
FORGET - CBD doesn’t appear to have a role in forgetting, but may improve cognitive function and prevent memory deficits.
PROTECT - CBD appears to play a role in protecting the fatty substance that protects our nerves called ‘myelin’. As well, CBD could prove useful against neurodegenerative disorders.
