Cannabis compounds may be the next beneficial medical treatment in the fight against COVID-19. The compounds have been discovered to prevent the virus that causes COVID from penetrating healthy human cells, according to a lab study published in the Journal of Nature Products.

During a chemical screening, the two compounds commonly found in hemp – annabigerolic acid, or CBGA, and cannabidiolic acid, or CBDA — were identified as having the potential to combat coronavirus, researchers from Oregon State University said. In the study, the compounds were found to block a step the pathogen uses to infect people.

The researchers tested the compounds’ effect against alpha and beta variants of the virus in a lab. The study didn’t involve giving the supplements to people or comparing infection rates in those who use the compounds to those who don’t.

“These compounds can be taken orally and have a long history of safe use in humans,” said Richard van Breemen, a researcher with Oregon State’s Global Hemp Innovation Center. “They have the potential to prevent as well as treat infection by SARS-CoV-2.”

CBD, in particular, acts as a therapeutic treatment by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which regulates cardiovascular, nervous and immune system functions. CBD also binds to and activates receptors in the brain that create a therapeutic effect in the body, which helps users find relief from painful symptoms of COVID, without feeling impaired. CBD is also a known antimicrobial and antioxidant.

Using CBD from Swissx, one of the world’s leading CBD companies, in the fight against viruses, like the one that leads to COVID, doesn’t lead to adverse health effects. In an assessment on CBD, the World Health Organization (WHO) noted that CBD is generally well tolerated, and doesn’t show any indicators of potential for abuse or dependence.

One of the most highly effective forms of CBD to use in order to help viruses like the one that causes COVID is hemp oil, of which Swissx sells several forms. One such product is the OG Skywalker Blend CBD Gold Label oil, which is sold in one gram syringes. Swissx’s Gold Label is considered to be a part of the upper elite of the available CBD oils, as it contains a CBD share of 50% and 3% THC. Swissx Gold Label CBD Oil, which is made in accordance to legal measures, is being sold in glass syringes for $50. (Note that due to its highly potency, consumers shouldn’t use more than the suggested amount.)

For people who prefer not to use syringes, Wingra Farms Hemp Extract Tincture is one of Swissx’s most popular, affordable hemp oil drops. The product, which is made from 100% American-grown hemp, are approved by Swissx’s labs. The drops combine all-natural peppermint flavor with the company’s proprietary fast absorption technology to deliver the safest and most effective benefits of CBD.

Swissx also sells CBD crumbles, a concentrated cannabis extract that’s very potent, which helps provide its users with quick relief. The company’s highly rated pure OG Kush Crumble is a legal dab that’s made from premium Hemp flowers in Switzerland, and doesn’t include any THC. The crumble, which can also be added into food and drinks, is being sold for $20.

Swissx is one of the leading companies in the world that supports affordable and healthy cannabis use. Its CBD products improve the quality of life of people who have genetic predisposition to such ailments as anxiety, depression and insomnia, as well as general physical pain.
