Cannabis and Covid-19: Can marijuana stop the virus?



Thanks to researchers affiliated with an Oregan State study, there is evidence that cannabinoids block cellular entry of the SARS-CoV-2 and other emerging variants. What happens is CBGA and CBDA bind to the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2. Once they bind, it blocks the virus from entering the cell.

  • CBGA- Cannabigerolic Acid is one of several cannabinoids found in cannabis. CBGA can be converted to CBG when heat is applied. CBG shows promising potential with benefits such as helping with Cancer, appetite, inflammation, and mood.

  • CBDA- We are all a little more familiar with Cannabidiolic Acid. CBDA is the "raw" form of CBD. CBDA is converted to CBD after heat is applied. CBD is already widely used across the United States and has many medicinal benefits.

Researchers are already saying that these cannabinoids can go through conversions to become oral medicines. Both CBGA and CBDA are non-intoxicating; this is exciting news because there will not be so many bridges to cross when getting newly developed remedies out to the public. These cannabinoids are not controlled substances like THC, so getting it into states shouldn't be as hard.


It is exciting to see yet another medical benefit emerge from the marijuana plant. Hopefully, there will be no problems getting these newly developed medicines out to the public. It is always a good thing for people to be able to choose a natural remedy for their illnesses, and now they will be able to.
