Now Researchers Say Use Of Cannabis Can Reduce Effect Of Coronavirus On Patient With Other Illnesses
New Delhi, January 19, 2021: Researchers around the world are currently researching which drugs would be most effective in reducing and eliminating coronavirus.
The research is currently underway in more than 100 organizations around the world. At the same time, a Canadian university claims that the use of cannabis can save the person with a serious illness who has more chances to get infected by a coronavirus.
According to this research, cannabis use is beneficial to strengthen the body’s immune system. The study also found that people with coronavirus and other serious illnesses could start using cannabis-containing drugs.
According to Daily Mail, a group of researchers at the University of Lethbridge in Canada have claimed that a weakened immune system triggers a process called ‘cytokine storm’. It also affects the healthy cells in the body. Many patients with coronavirus disease and other illnesses have died of the same cause.
The substance found in Cannabis leaves can stop this cytokine storm. The two chemicals that cause cytokine storms are interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a). Researchers say that cannabis can help to reduce the levels of these chemicals.

Ever since the widespread outbreak of corona, many researchers around the world have been researching what can be done to reduce the effects of cytokine storms. This process continues even after a virus has been eliminated from the body. This can lead to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). This ARDS can also lead to death. It can also cause lung fibrosis. In lung fibrosis, the lung cells get damaged and the lungs fail.
Researchers at the University of Lethbridge in Canada studied 200 different strains of cannabis. He did detailed research on seven of those strains. This research has been pre-printed in Research Scare. Researchers have found three important strains that are thought to be effective in cytokine storms. This strain is named as number four, number eight and number fourteen. The strain is now being considered for use in patients in ICU who are in critical condition due to coronavirus.
