Study: Can cannabis help coronavirus patients?Ichilov hospital initiates study into whether cannabis can alleviate symptoms of coronavirus patients in serious condition.
A new study has been initiated at Ichilov Medical Center aimed at investigating whether one of the active substances in cannabis, cannabidiol, can slow down the inflammatory symptoms that accompany the deterioration of serious coronavirus patients and alleviate the symptoms of the disease.
The study was conducted in collaboration with a number of herbalists in the hospital, and is expected to recruit dozens of patients in moderate condition.
Dr. Barak Cohen, senior anesthesiologist and head of coronavirus management at Ichilov and one of the initiators of the project, emphasized that: "This is a novel approach to treating some of the symptoms with a cannabis plant ingredient that is considered safe and non-addictive."
The study was initiated by the hospital and is currently not related to any company.

Please note that during this entire crisis we steered clear from suggesting that CBD can somehow cure coronavirus. While CBD has many wonderful medical properties that has helped many of our customers, until there is scientific data, we don't condone hearsay about CBD.
This is certainly very exciting and seems to be very promising as many people use CBD successfully to reduce inflammation and therefore CBD may be a good option for coronavirus symptoms. We will have to wait and see what the outcome of this study will be.
We hope you are safe and healthy!
