CBD reduces COVID-19 lung damage with protective peptides

In a new study, scientists have shown that one of the non-psychoactive cannabinoids in cannabis – CBD – reduces lung damage induced by cytokine storms caused by COVID-19 through enabling an increase in levels of a natural peptide. The scientists, from the Dental College of Georgia (DCG) and the Medical College of Georgia, demonstrated earlier this year that CBD has the ability to improve oxygen levels and reduce inflammation and physical lung damage related to adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). This new study has now shown the mechanisms behind these results, demonstrating that CBD normalises levels of a peptide named [...]

CBD helps reduce lung damage from COVID by increasing levels of protective peptide

Credit: Kim Ratliff, Production Coordinator, Augusta University One way CBD appears to reduce the “cytokine storm” that damages the lungs and kills many patients with COVID-19 is by enabling an increase in levels of a natural peptide called apelin, which is known to reduce inflammation and whose levels are dramatically reduced in the face of this storm. Dental College of Georgia and Medical College of Georgia researchers reported this summer CBD’s ability to improve oxygen levels and reduce inflammation as well as physical lung damage in their laboratory model of deadly adult respiratory distress syndrome, or ARDS. Now [...]

Previous studies have demonstrated how strains of cannabis with higher concentrations of THC and lower levels of CBD can products effects such as paranoia and anxiety, but the reason why these occur has not been understood. “For years we have known that strains of cannabis high in THC and low in CBD were more likely to cause psychiatric side-effects,” says Steven Laviolette, Ph.D. “Our findings identify for the first time the molecular mechanisms [...]
