Stephanie Talks COVID and Cannabis
Stephanie Magurno of THC Production, LLC talks about recent headlines about COVID-19 and the apparent benefits that Cannabis may have on fighting the virus. She chose to do this because there are many misleading headlines being shared online and on the news. However, the study being referenced is often taken out of context. Stephanie’s goal is to give you the real deal and spread some knowledge about the relationship between COVID and cannabis.
About the Study
Things to keep in mind. The article was published in the multidisciplinary journal PrePrints. First of all, this is not a peer-reviewed journal. In other words, this means that scientists and clinicians will not take the results and conclusions too seriously. Why? These are only preliminary research findings. Therefore, this should not be confused for a legitimate scientific study. Additionally, these types of early studies should be used to drive further research, rather than generating conclusions from them.
Secondly, all of the Canadian-based authors, including Dr. Igor Kovalchuk, CEO and controlling shareholder of the Alberta R&D company Swysh, has a conflict of interest. In fact, they disclose these at the end of the article. Consequently, we must take their findings with a grain of salt.
Finally, this experiment was performed solely in artificial cell culture models. Keep this in mind. In other words, no humans or animals were tested. At any point. Therefore, there is essentially nothing to back up any of their conclusions. Cannabis and CBD may be able to assist in the treatment of COVID-19. However, the evidence is not yet there to make these claims. Therefore, it’s best to take the finding with a grain of salt and not look for COVID cures in cannabis to early.
