It comes as no surprise that COVID-19 has caused a ton of fear and anxiety throughout the world’s population, especially in the event of contracting it yourself! How do I treat it? How bad will my symptoms be? Will there be long-term effects? The questions are endless, and more people are looking to health supplements and alternative medicine to prevent or try to treat symptoms of COVID. As a same day weed delivery service we want to know how we can help. With that being said, is cannabis a viable option for this? Let’s take a look…
Cytokine vs. Cannabis, an epic battle
According to this article, “One of the primary biological events that occur in patients with severe acute respiratory distress cases from COVID-19 is something called a “cytokine storm.” A cytokine storm is where the body experiences an extreme increase in pro-inflammatory cytokines. These cytokines are a category of proteins, and the cytokines involved in a cytokine storm lead to an increase in inflammation”. Well, what does this have to do with marijuana? This magical herb has been scientifically proven to drastically reduce inflammation within the body, therefore reducing the severity of COVID-19 symptoms.
This may seem like an obvious one, but weed is a wonderful treatment for pain! Among the long list of symptoms, body aches, sore throat, and headaches are some of the most common among COVID patients. Thankfully, cannabis is fantastic at aiding pain relief. Whether you prefer to smoke actual THC or just benefit from the properties of CBD, they both help a lot with these kinds of symptoms.
