EXPERIENCE. OBSERVATION. PASSION.

Exciting Research

March 2022 Update:

It looks like the numbers and risks for contracting COVID are rising once again, according to new UAMS COVID model predictions. According to a report published March 22, the model forecasts over 17,000 new cases by April 12, with an average of  almost 600 new daily cases per day. The data shows an average of 22 deaths PER DAY for the next 30 days. It may be a good time to revisit the data presented by Oregon State University on the efficacy of CBD in providing another layer of protection (see below).

Fellow Hempsters! By now, you may have seen the report from Oregon State about CBD and Covid, and may be watching the misinformation agenda unfold. I’d like to weigh in from my corner of the hemp field. Literally.

The Oregon State study, entitled “Cannanioids Block Cellular Entry of SARS-CoV-2 and the Emerging Variants”, was published in the Journal of Natural Products on January 10, 2022. (Read the full study at nih.gov here). This release follows a study published by the National Institute of Health (NIH) in March of 2021, “Cannabidiol Inhibits SARS-CoV-2 Replication and Promotes the Host Innate Immune Response”, coming to about the same conclusion as the Oregon State study. (That paper is in “peer review”, which means it may or may not see the light of day). The two reports differ in that one states that certain cannabinoids (molecules) keep the SARS-CoV-2 virus from entering the cell wall, and the other states that when it does penetrate the wall it cannot replicate. To me, it is the same end result.

With all the rhetoric around Covid, it is indeed difficult to navigate the data flow. One thing for certain is that another layer of protection is a WIN, whatever your view on vaccinations. Anecdotally, and totally unscientifically, I am following the health of many who use my oil. People from all walks, mixed gender and age, heavy viral loads and quarantined, vaxed and unvaxed. Some have antibodies from past Covid (Delta), some have gotten it twice. All 100% of them using my medicine are free of virus. Once again, just my observation. My friends using medical marijuana have seen some protection using their medicine, but not 100%. When we breed the active cannabinoid (THC) up to the limits where it is today, it comes at a cost of the CBD. The CBD from hemp has the ability to offer more complexities, as the THC is minimalized.

People from all walks, mixed gender and age, heavy viral loads and quarantined, vaxed and unvaxed… All 100% of them using my medicine are free of virus.

The history of this plant and our history as Americans has been marginalizing what was a common plant medicine for millennia. Having a plant medicine that can offer humanity relief is not new. Cannabis is just coming back to its former position in the cabinet, where it was before aspirin. The process will be wrought with opposing viewpoints as that is how we roll.

I am solely on the quest for a life better lived and some protection from the viruses of today and the future. The cannabis plant has been in alliance with humans, as we have an endocannabinoid system in place. I am introducing a plethora of healing molecules (phytocannabinoids) for your body to use as tools. Be well and watch this space.
