You’ve heard it every day in the news; the Coronavirus is rapidly infecting people at a higher rate as each day passes. While scientists and medical experts are working day and night in finding a cure for the Coronavirus, most of the world’s population are urged to stay inside their homes. With this in mind, most individuals are conscious of keeping their physical health in peak condition. However, keeping your spiritual and mental health in a good state should be focused on more. A good percentage of the population uses CBD-infused products as a form of recreation and as a way of treating neurological-related ailments. News reports have said that around 91% of the population in North America are in favor of legalizing Cannabis and CBD, and it’s not a surprise since CBD can help several health conditions [1]. But with the risk of getting Coronavirus looming overhead, how does CBD fair well against COVID-19? Does CBD live up to its reputation of being a ‘miracle drug’?

Even though there’s a white paper (all rights reserved) that points out that CBD and cannabis can help with the deadly disease, there’s are also some information that points out that CBD might not be the most optimal way of staying healthy against this disease. But what are some facts about CBD and how is it tied with COVID-19? We’ll be giving you some insights into how the CBD can help in the fight against the virus.

 

Is There Any Known Treatment For The Coronavirus Disease?

You might be asking yourself “Well, if this is a virus, then I’ll just take some vitamin C and I’ll be good to go!” This might be true that vitamin C, zinc, and other types of nutrients are able to help boost your immune system, but it can’t guarantee that you won’t get COVID-19. As of this date, there is no effective means of treating COVID-19 and there is no specific type of medicine that’s able to cure and prevent the spread of COVID-19. However, if we’re talking about taking care of the symptoms of the disease, then there are different ways of relieving these symptoms. Some news outlets report that people who are affected might be asymptomatic or only show minor symptoms. In the case of individuals with severe symptoms should be taken to the hospital.

Possible Cure?

Doctors and medical practitioners have been working around the clock to investigating specific drug treatments that can counter the effects of this disease. Most of these viable options are now in clinical trials. International companies and organizations like the WHO has been coordinating with several experts in developing a vaccine and medicine so they’ll be able to treat COVID-19.

Unlike other diseases, COVID-19 does not show any symptoms until the 14th day. This makes it one of the hardest diseases to detect unless there’s mass testing that’s being conducted on an area.

Smoking CBD Should Be The Last Thing On Your Mind

Most of the time, CBD products are taken through smoking or several creative ways like CBD edibles. (Here are some good recipes: There’s not entirely a lot of data regarding how between CBD and COVID-19, but smoking cannabis should not be your first priority. COVID-19 is known for attacking the respiratory system of an individual which can cause pneumonia and shortness of breath. Let’s say that we do smoke some cannabis and then the symptoms of COVID-19 starts kicking off (hopefully, that doesn’t happen to you or anyone), it’s going to be a nightmare for your lungs; this can severely hinder your intake of oxygen, damage your lung’s elastic tissue, and can also make it harder for your to breathe. At this moment, information on the damages that the virus can cause is still scarce, but it’s quite apparent that it targets the respiratory system of its victims; it’s safe to say that taking it via your airways should be put on hold.

If you go to social media groups on Twitter and Facebook, you’ll notice that there are many people that will advocate the use of CBD and cannabis while claiming that these are ‘miracle cures’ against the virus. It might be true that CBD and cannabis can reduce stress but information from research and newsgroups about CBD products boosting the immune system is still scarce.

It’s important to note that even though Cannabis might have some medical successes, it does not guarantee that it can be an effective alternative to clinically-approved medicine. Consulting a licensed medical professional can help make sure that

Safest Way Of Taking CBD?

Since smoking might increase the chances of our lungs getting vulnerable to the virus, what is the best way of taking CBD and cannabis? Well, one of the best ways of having CBD is by taking it in as edibles. (While you’re at it, here’s some kick-ass CBD ingredients and edible reviews that you can look at. If you’re someone who loves to bake and you want to be creative on how you’ll be taking your cannabis then this is the best time to experiment on it. Edibles are the best way of taking CBD for those who have respiratory health issues and chronic pain. Compared to vaping and smoking, edibles won’t kick in as fast as the others, but the effects will definitely last longer.

Ultimately, even though there might be some key differences between smoking cannabis and tobacco, it’s still recommended that you refrain from smoking at this time. If smoking for you is a habit, then a vaporizer is the closest thing that you can get to smoking without the harmful effects that it has on the elastic tissues of your lungs. Vapes work by heating the CBD enough to bring out the right compounds. Since vaping is not necessarily smoke, this is considered a safer way of ‘smoking’.

What Can I Do To Prevent The Coronavirus Disease At Home?

While our frontline professionals (nurses, doctors, and first responders) are busy battling out the virus in hospitals and make-shift treatment facilities, we have to do our part and just stay at home. It might seem counter-productive and boring to just stay at home, but it’s the best way of helping out our medical professionals who have been working tirelessly to keep the rate of infections in check. Who would have thought that staying on your couch, playing some video games, or working remotely meant that you’re doing your part?

Preventive Measures

There are several different ways of protecting yourself and every around you from COVID-19. You can start by cleaning your hands regularly – especially when you’ve come in contact with different people. If you’re about to go out to crowded places, it’s best to keep a good amount of distance between you and the nearest person (should be around 3 feet). Coughing on your elbows instead of coughing on your hands should be practiced at all times.

There’s always a chance that we’ll need to get out of our house to buy some goods that will last us through the remainder of this outbreak, so you’ll need to prepare for that.

Working From Home

It’s no surprise that when everybody’s being advised to just stay home, businesses are bound to be slow. Most companies and businesses have been switching to a work-from-home set-up with remote specialists that have B2B knowledge.

What Is The Name Of The Disease Caused By the Coronavirus?

Even though early news reports of the Novel Coronavirus might seem like it’s a new and mysterious disease, it’s a new strain that has branched off from a family of viruses that we have known for quite some time now. COVID-19 and SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) which gained publicity back in 2003 almost have the same genetic make-up but are completely different diseases. As the name suggests, SARS is known to be more deadly but less infectious. COVID-19 – on the other hand – is quite infectious but not as deadly as its previous predecessor. This disease has a variety of different names, but most people call it COVID-19, NCoV 2019, and simply Coronavirus. In most cases, WHO and other health organizations would formally use the term COVID-19 to address the disease.

Who Is Most At Risk For The Coronavirus Disease?

Just on April 3 alone, numerous news outlets from New York reports around 6500 new cases with a total of 56,289 coronavirus cases and 1,867 deaths. This makes it one of the most deadly diseases that have impacted the United States. According to data gathered from countries that are hit hard by COVID-19, older people are more vulnerable to the symptoms of the disease since they tend to have a weaker immune system. On the same date, April 3, the CBD business in the United States have been struggling to into receivership to make ends meet.

Here’s the of confirmed cases around the world with the United States leading as of April 3:

U.S. Statistics April 3 of COVID-19 cases

To make the long story short, there are not enough credible sources, as of this moment, linking CBD with the Coronavirus. While news outlets and research articles report that cannabis and CBD-infused products might be able to help with the mental health of its users, there’s not enough adequate information linking it to the Coronavirus. One thing’s for certain though: there are widespread supply interruptions of CBD and medical cannabis in the U.S. since traveling in-between states have been disrupted. Experts in the matter would also suggest vaping and taking edibles if you’re going to be taking in CBD.
