CBD and its role with Coronavirus (COVID-19)
There is no dependable scientific research on CBD’s effect on the Coronavirus also known as COVID-19. BUT we know a thing or two about CBD and the human body’s general health and wellness. While there have been many false claims about CBD, and some retailers making false claims about CBD and it being a “miracle drug”.
We make no claims that CBD will cure, treat, or prevent coronavirus. There is simply no scientific evidence at this time to validate such claims, and any CBD retailer making such are preying on the emotions of anxious consumers.
However, CBD may have a part to play in this current Coronavirus pandemic…read on for more insight into how CBD may be able to help.
What is the Coronavirus?
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China.
What are the symptoms of the Coronavirus?
The coronavirus like other respiratory illnesses affects everyone differently with patients experiencing no symptoms at all, and others experiencing mild to severe respiratory issues, and even death.
- Shortness of breath
- Dry cough
- Sore throat
- Pain in muscles
- Pain in joints
Who is most at risk?
According to the World Health Organization those over 60 years old and those with underlying health issues such as:
- Chronic respiratory disease
- Cardiovascular disease
If you are a person who has an underlying condition or elderly, it is important to take extra precautions and crucially take steps to ensure you are keeping your immune system as strong as possible. Cardiovascular disease, diabetes and lung diseases all tax the body, making infections harder to fight off. CBD has been found to help support the human body’s immune system. By incorporating CBD into your health regime, you can potentially help boost good health and even treat certain ailments.

What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring, safe, and non-addictive compound found in Hemp plants. CBD does not make a person feel “high”, as it has no psychoactive effects and interacts with the human body differently. CBD has been recognized for its extensive mind and body health benefits on humans and animals.
How does CBD work?
CBD’s extensive health benefits are due to its interaction with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) – a biological system found in mammals. It works to maintain homeostasis (balance) in our bodies, which can include everything from regulating your core temperature to your mood, appetite, sleep, energy levels, blood pressure, and more.
What can CBD do to help fight the Coronavirus?
Unfortunately, there is no conclusive evidence to suggest CBD can avoid or cure the coronavirus or the common cold or flu. However, CBD does have some powerful anti-inflammatory properties that can help us feel better. Some of which are:
- Soothing aches and pains
- Calming a persistent cough
- Reduces nausea
- Eases sinus pressure and headaches
At this point in time it’s still too early to tell what specific effect CBD could have, but using CBD to help boost your immune system can potentially help your body from catching viruses.
The best way to fight the coronavirus is to prevent it. This includes taking extra sanitation and hygiene precautions during flu season, like washing your hands and using hand sanitizer more often or cleaning areas of your home or office where common use could spread germs.
It can also include using your CBD products. Many users feel that a regular CBD regimen helps strengthen their immune system, giving their body the help, it needs to better fight off illnesses when exposure occurs.
How can I keep my immune system resilient?
Keeping your body’s defense mechanism strong is especially critical for those at high risk. A human immune system is designed to attack “harmful” invaders such as a common cold, flu virus, and other pathogens such as the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. In order to ensure your body is prepared to implement the strongest immune response, it is vital to ensure you are strong and healthy.
The following health guidelines can help keep your immune system in peak condition.
- Eat a well-balanced diet high in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.
- Refrain from smoking
- Exercise regularly
- Control stress and blood pressure
- Get plenty of sleep
- Limit or eliminate alcohol consumption
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Practice good hygiene – wash your hands frequently with soap and water and avoid touching your face
CBD is not a medicine, so it won’t help you diagnose, cure, treat, or specifically prevent a viral infection. Using CBD should not take the place of professional medical care, though you may decide for yourself if you want to use it in addition to any treatment.
CBD is not seen as a cure for the coronavirus in humans, but it has numerous important properties that address issues felt by individuals who contract the illness.
CBD may not be a cure for coronavirus, but it offers anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. These are significant for people who contract the coronavirus and become nauseous, vomit, and experience any inflammation. Also, CBD is known to reduce stress and anxiety issues. All of these properties are helpful in fighting the disease.
Many people choose to use CBD to treat symptoms that cause them the most suffering while they’re infected. More importantly, CBD used as part of a healthy lifestyle may help boost your immune system and overall wellbeing.
