Dagga Could Save Your Life From COVID-19 - Opinion

Dagga Could Reduce Fatal COVID-19 Lung Inflammation 

As COVID-19 infections proceed to soar, in South Africa, assistance might come from the most unlikely place, the Dagga plant. According to scientists Dagga has robust blends that make it alluring as a possible medication for illnesses caused by COVID-19. Scientists have started looking at Dagga for reducing exposure to the infection, and even examined whether it could be used as an antiviral prescription. Researchers from the University of Nebraska and the Texas Biomedical Research Institute are proposing more studies into how Dagga could assist in treating dangerous lung inflammation caused by COVID-19. Seven cannabinoids in the Dagga plant has anti-inflammatory properties. In particular, they point to CBD as the most likely candidate for treating COVID-19 related inflammation. CBD has shown significant anti-inflammatory properties in previous surveys. It doesn't develop the disorienting psychotropic effects associated with Dagga’s most common chemical THC, and it has already been authorized by the FDA as safe for kids with uncontrollable epilepsy. If prosperous at lessening inflammation for COVID-19 patients, it could be a safer option to other anti-inflammatory selections. While this doesn’t indicate Dagga should be contemplated a cure or therapy for COVID-19 on its own, it does indicate that it may be conceivable to assist in bringing, down inflammation and lessen anxiety in those suffering from the illness. But until more investigations are performed, this is just a well-supported hypothesis. Direct experimentation is desired to give rise to substantial explanations.

Cannabis is currently utilized to reduce nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy, to improve appetite in people with HIV/AIDS, and to treat chronic pain and muscle spasms. Cannabinoids are under preliminary research for their potential to affect stroke. Evidence is lacking for depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Tourette syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder, and psychosis. Two extracts of cannabis – dronabinol and nabilone – are approved by the FDA as medications in pill form for treating the side effects of chemotherapy and AIDS.
