Hemp compounds interfere with Covid-19 spike proteins

The Year of Hemp got off to a super start with news of scientific experiments that show compounds found in industrial hemp – nothing to do with medical cannabis – interfere with the Covid-19 spike proteins, making it significantly harder for them to infect a person’s upper respiratory system.

Cannabinoids Block Cellular Entry of SARS-CoV-2 and the Emerging Variants

Researchers affiliated with Oregon State University published their paper ‘Cannabinoids Block Cellular Entry of SARS-CoV-2 and the Emerging Variants,’ on Monday 10 Jan 2022, in the Journal of Natural Products. This great news was reported widely, with Forbes.com stating: “two cannabinoid acids commonly found in hemp varietals of cannabis, cannabigerolic acid, or CBGA, and cannabidiolic acid, also known as CBDA, can bind to the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19. By binding to the spike protein, the compounds can prevent the virus from entering cells and causing infection, potentially offering new avenues to prevent and treat the disease.”
