New research looks into cannabis as a weapon in the fight against the pandemic
“The study, published in the Journal of Natural Products, found that cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), have an affinity for the spike proteins that line the outside of individual coronavirus particles. The spike proteins are how the virus enters human cells, where it then replicates. When CBGA or CBDA binds to those proteins, the virus is no longer able to pass into human cells.”
Who sells CBDA?
“Our Raw Formula hemp extract is unique because it contains a mixture of raw and decarboxylated hemp extract – both CBD and CBD Acid (CBDA). CBDA is the raw version of the molecule that occurs in the plant. It is sometimes mistakenly called the ‘inactive form’ of CBD – but that’s hugely incorrect. If you look at the research, CBDA has a wide range effects already studied by scientists. It causes a different array of effects from CBD and it seems like CBDA and CBD complement each other’s positive effect. If you’ve heard of people across the country, juicing the raw hemp plant and drinking it, they’re doing that for the CBDA. It works. But softgels are an easier way to take it than trying to fit a bunch of hemp into a blender.”
