Several companies have developed Vaccine to protect against Coronavirus. Which most countries have started to install people here after approving them. Since the arrival of this disease, many other methods are also being worked out to eradicate it. One such discovery was also made about cannabis. On the basis of which a possibility has been raised that if the cannabis is treated with Kovid-19 (Cannabis for COVID-19), then it reduces the possibility of death of the patient.
Weak immune system is the biggest cause of death of a patient in Kovid infection. According to a research, hemp can help in this matter. Research has claimed that hemp elements can also be tested on patients suffering from corona virus. In the case of corona-like illness, the immune system is weakened, leading to a process called 'cytokine storm' in the body. The effect of which starts on the cells of the body. It is also believed to be the reason for the death of the patient in severe cases.
How does hemp help?
Regarding this, the researcher of Lethbridge University has now claimed that the cytokine storm can be prevented by the elements from the hemp tree. Two chemical interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a) play a key role in initiating this process. Whose quantity can be reduced by this treatment.
There is an increased risk of ARDS
The purpose of doing this research was also to figure out how to stop the cytokine storm. This is a process that continues in the patient's body even after recovering from the virus. Which can lead to a disease like Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). Which is very deadly. In this disease, the lung tissue may get damaged or even stop working.
Study done on 7 strains
When this research was done to prevent this process, more than 200 strains of cannabis were seen in it. Then there was study on seven. After completion of the research, it has been pre-printed in 'Research Square'. However, its peer review is yet to be done. In this study, three strains have been found in the hemp which are effective in fighting the corona. The strains are named numbers 4, 8 and 14. It is now planned that their test will be done on those patients who are admitted in ICU and are seriously suffering from Corona virus.
