Canadian researchers are studying the potential for marijuana to be used to prevent coronavirus infections.

Researchers at the University of Lethbridge in Calgary are studying more than 400 strains of cannabis and have determined that at least a dozen may offer potential as part of treatments to prevent coronavirus from infecting a host.


This is great news!!!!


According to the researchers, the effective strains have, in some instances, managed to reduce virus receptors, which reduces the chance for an individual to catch coronavirus.

"A number of them have reduced the number of these receptors by 73 per cent, the chance of it getting in is much lower," Dr Igor Kovalchuk told the Calgary Herald. "If they can reduce the number of receptors, there's much less chance of getting infected."


Will Trump now start smoking blunts in the White House? One can only hope!


Mr Kovalchuk said much more research would be necessary before they understand precisely whether CBD, THC or some combination of ingredients is causing the reduction in receptors.


Don't take a chance, smoke it and get ALL the ingredients, ALL the benefits! It's a WIN/WIN!
MAGA!

Then it's not overindulgence on tokers' parts, it's fortifying the immune system. And in that case, some people are certainly good to go. For the next century.

I should consider fortifying my own immune system, for, you know, health and safety purposes. Yeah, that's it, health and safety purposes.

That's funny, no pun intended...

I've never toked a single joint, blunt, bong, or whatever, and my immune system is as good as it gets. I've kissed girls that had strep throat, nothing. I've never had a flu shot or the flu, even when my wife has it and is right beside me all the time. I've had one stomach virus in 12 years. Don't take Vit C, probiotics, health immune vitamins, nothing.

I couldn't care less what other talking chimpanzees think and I don't have to because I'm retired but a 3/1 cbd/thc edible is definitely part of my daily routine.

Thank god for freedom loving states like Colorado.

This is great news, and a long time coming because
Cannabis has so many benafits it's unreal that it is illegal.

Saying that, psychadellics were banned because supposedly they had no medical use, which again is not true.

Things are changing, and they cannot keep a lot of this forever!.

You didn't provide any source material for the claim and, because it interested me, I started my own search.

Bible Plants



Calamus
Acorus calamus. Flowering branch (yellow). Hertford County, North Carolina. Araceae
Exodus 3: 2325, Song of Solomon 4:14, Isaiah 43: 24, Jeremiah 6:2, and Ezekiel 27:19 are the only references to an unusual plant translated as "sweet cane", "calamus", "sweet myrtle" and in other ways indicative of the confusion over which plant is intended. The Hebrew word, qaneh, indicates a fragrant plant with an upright aspect.

The verses in the prophets (op. cit.) clearly indicate the value of calamus and the fact that it was widely traded with nations in Asia. Two plants have been suggested. The first is a widespread plant of wetlands in the northern hemispheres of both the Old and New Worlds, Acorus calamus L. (Araceae). The rhizome has a peculiar sweet, lingering aroma suitable as a "carrier" in a perfume. Motley (1994) suggests that A. calamus is the calamus mentioned in Exodus 3 for the anoint ing oil applied to priests and objects in the tabernacle. Milne and Milne (1967) state that A. calamus was found in the tombs of the Pharaohs but cite no reference. Acorus calamus is not listed in a modern treatment of perfumery (Calkin and Jellinek 1994) but is still used in medicine and cosmetics (Leung and Foster 1996).

The second candidate is lemon grass. These are species of the genus Cymbopogon (Poaceae), most likely C. citratus (DC) Stapf. although several species are widely grown in tropical regions for their aroma and flavor. As the oil of lemon grass can be sensitizing to the skin (Leung and Foster 1996), it seems a less likely candidate for the biblical calamus than A. calamus.

Song of Solomon 4:14 indicates that "calamus" was grown as a garden plant. Acorus calamus is a plant of wet areas, scarcely the setting of this garden and not native to Israel. This is easily explained by the fact that this is a poetic expression of fragrant plants, including those that are not native in the Middle East.
