The world is being shaken to its core with the present COVID19 coronavirus pandemic. Super computers are now getting used to seem for drug combinations which may be ready to help within the fight against this SARS like flu. Those within the natural health space mention zinc, cooper, and metals wont to fight viruses and bacteria, and people within the cannabis space, promote cannabis as something which will a minimum of cause you to feel better if you’ve got flu like symptoms in your body.
While cannabis isn’t a cure or vaccine against the coronavirus, the immune enhancing properties of CBD, and therefore the possible anti-viral properties of THC, can help the body within the fight against any pathogens that enter the body. While more research is required , we do know that a healthy endocannabinoid system may be a good thing which cannabis help promote a healthy and balanced endocannabinoid system.
But what if….
Could this outbreak have led to a full world-wide cannabis legalization?
What if a rough study of cannabis came from Israel or Canada that showed that digesting the cannabis plant, in one among its many forms, led to the virus potency being cut in half. What if the study was just done on Chinese hemp, of which China may be a massive grower of hemp, and said large dosages of CBD derived from hemp caused the virus symptoms to be cut in half or recovery was cut in half with heavy doses of eating hemp or cannabis liquids or edibles?
What would the United States government have done, or will do if a study like that comes out tomorrow? immediately the govt is spending trillions of dollars to backstop the economy and stock exchange , sending floating hospitals off the coast of l. a. and ny , closing down all industry jobs and corporations , and Bill Ackerman, famous hedge fund operator says we aren’t doing nearly enough.
With everything being thrown against the wall, from doctors and nurses being allowed to figure across state lines and retired doctors being reinstated within 12 hours, would a Trump lead federal legalize cannabis? Would the plant be immediately de-scheduled from the drug Act and would the FDA tell everyone to start out growing a plant and seeds were being shipped out asap to each American?
Possible, the people I asked thought that something of this magnitude would catch on done. Now, the studies need to be pretty impressive for something like this act of God coming from a Trump lead government to happen. If the cannabis plant killed the coronavirus after 48 hours, then yes, it might be done and already before Congress and medical communities. If a study came out and said that it helped with symptoms and took many aches and pains away, would that cause Trump to select up the Bat Phone to the DEA and obtain it done immediately? that’s where the talk can commence. We all agree that a cure or vaccine from the cannabis plant would immediately get the miracle to happen, but what about just helping with symptoms like achy joints, fever, and anxiety?
Take an aspirin or ibuprofen they might say, right?
Well, new information, that updates by the hour, says don’t give ibuprofen to people with the virus, especially kids, since it now shows that NASIDS like ibuprofen tend to agitate and irritate the virus. Does cannabis as a glorified fever breaker get the federal statue changed, probably not with this Republican lead government.
Cannabis saving lives, lowering potency of an epidemic , or speeding up recovery may very well get some Federal movement on the topic . Things are becoming done fast and on the fly immediately , standard protocol is being thrown out the window for possible solutions, and once the hospitals are a max capacity, ideas like legalizing cannabis and getting people thereon might not be as crazy because it sounds today.
I write that sentence envisioning this historically important moment during a month’s time because the virus hit America full boar within the hospital ER and ICU units, but with the way this virus is moving, it’s going to be closer to next week before more means are checked out . What would wish to happen in reality? A report that would be backed by more and more people, ex-virus carriers preferred, that said CBD saved me and lowered by fever, virus cells, etc. the last word choice would be cannabis and THC did this and legalization must be done immediately. All growers are ordered to build up to as many seeds possible that would enter the bottom within 24 hours.
The dream home run? A user tests positive for the virus, uses plenty of cannabis for 10 days, then tests negative for the virus. Is that even scientifically possible? No, I don’t think so as traces of the virus will stay in your system forever with the anti-bodies you created, but it’s the dream home run video.
THC would have to player a major roll backed up by a decent amount of doctors to get the whole cannabis plant de-scheduled. If is it just CBD boasting the immune system, then the government could go hog wild on just industrial and commercial hemp and hemp CBD.
It is a longshot for sure, but in these days of full world shutdowns and Marshall law looking possible, who is to say someone doesn’t release a cannabis coronavirus study that just gets it done.
Fat chance, but so was shutting down every mall, gym, and restaurant in America just 4 weeks ago.
