Is a natural remedy like cannabis an antiviral for Covid-19?

A year into Covid-19 and no governing health organization has established a task force to study pre-existing medications in the prevention of Covid-19, according to Dr. Pierre Kory‘s testimony at a US Senate meeting. An anti-parasitic drug, Ivermectin, has shown unproven but ‘miraculous‘ results in large doses that are now accepted by many physicians. Despite […]

Can You Treat COVID-19 With CBD and Reduce Mortality Rates? A New Israeli Research Believes You Can!

Can you treat COVID-19 with CBD?
Can you reduce mortality rates of COVID-19 in patients with sever cases by using cannabinoids? A new Israeli clinical trial, approved recently, believes that a possible treatment for COVID-19 could be a blend of CBD and steroids.

Exciting news coming from Israel suggests that you can treat COVID-19 with CBD! According to this research, the possible treatment for COVID-19 patients might be coming from a special blend of CBD and Steroids. Unlike other cannabinoids-based medicine, aimed to treat but not to cure, the current clinical trial, held in the Rabin Medical Center (Beilinson) is using CBD and steroids to reduce mortality rates among the among COVID-19 patients in the worst states of health. If this clinical trial produces positive results, we might see a new wave of global attention toward CBD, cannabis and cannabinoid-based medicine.

Can You Treat COVID-19 With CBD?

A new clinical trial, by the Rabin Medical Center, (RMC), is testing a promising CBD (Cannabidiol) based treatment for patients with severe and critical COVID-19 pulmonary infection. The study, which runs in cooperation of Stero Biotechs, an Israel-based company focused on Cannabidiol (CBD) formulation research and Mor Research applications, the TTO arm of Clalit, the largest state-mandated health service organizations in Israel, is trying to establish whether a new formula, based on CBD (infused in pharma grade olive oil) and steroids can reduce COVID-19’s mortality rates.

The clinical trial already received Helsinki Committee approval and is planned for 20 patient treatment as a Proof of Concept (‘POC’), using Stero’s CBD-based treatment, conducted by Dr. Ilya Kagan from the intensive care department with the support of Dr. Moshe Yeshurun, Director of the Bone Marrow Transplantation Unit, at Rabin Medical Center, Israel.

The study aims to benefit and help COVID-19 patients in severe states with respiratory failure from acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The treatment cycle will be for 14-28 days with a subsequent follow-up period of the same length. Pending the success of this POC, Stero plans to expand and scale phase 2a multi-center study, with an additional 40 patients, under FDA clinical trial guidelines and regulations.

According to David Bassa, Founder & CEO of Stero Biotechs after six years of researching CBD they already gathered alot of data about CBD’s safety, its effectiveness in treating inflammation and its ability to moderate the ammune system when it is becoming over-active.

In addition, the company has already researched the efficacy of CBD for the treatment of acute (Grade 3-4) Graft versus Host Disease (“GvHD”), when combined with steroids. That’s why, after learning from Oxford that steroids are effective in treating COVID-19 they have decided to use their own experience research a blend that uses both CBD and steroids. They believe that a formula that uses both CBD and steroids will be more effective in treating patients in severe states and that by adding CBD they will be enhancing the therapeutic effect of a steroid treatment.

Warfighter Hemp Launches CDC-Grade Antiseptic Sanitizer With CBD

According to the Center for Disease Control, thoroughly washing your hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds is the most effective way to help slow and prevent the spreading of viruses, including COVID-19. However, sometimes it isn’t so easy to get to the sink, like when you’re at the grocery store or running errands. In these instances, the CDC recommends the use of ethyl-based hand sanitizer with a minimum 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol as an effective way to kill germs and boost your hand hygiene when you do not have access to soap and water.

Warfighter Hemp recently launched a CDC-grade antiseptic sanitizer gel and spray with CBD to help combat coronavirus and protect the most vulnerable in our society.

The Colorado-based manufacturer was founded by Lt. Col. (ret) Steve Danyluk (USMC) and is run by veterans and non-veterans alike. The company’s mission is to make high-quality CBD products (derived from industrial hemp) to veterans, providing holistic and natural alternatives to prescription painkillers that contribute to the devastatingly high number of veteran suicides.

Danyluk went in search of the recommended sanitizers when COVID-19 began making headlines and was concerned by the lack of stock and inflated prices.

Armed with the knowledge that Warfighter Hemp uses organic ethyl in the extraction process when separating CBD from industrial hemp, Danyluk and his business partner, Chief Operating Officer Henry Strazza, quickly put their abundant byproduct to good use.

“Knowing that sanitizer is in high demand but limited supply, we quickly worked a plan to offer our CBD sanitizer lotion for those who need it most — our nations veterans in the VA Healthcare system,” said Strazza.

For every sale of Warfighter Hemp Antiseptic Sanitizer gel or spray, a bottle will be donated to first responders, hospital workers and other frontline persons who are leading the battle against coronavirus. These donations will be sent by the case to those entities who have pre-registered here

The 4oz CBD Antiseptic Sanitizer Spray contains 400mg CBD distillate, 80% ethyl alcohol, glycerin, water, lavender oil and hydrogen peroxide.

The 8oz CBD Antiseptic Sanitizer Gel pump contains 800 mg CBD distillate, 80% ethyl alcohol, glycerin, aloe gel, water, lavender oil, and hydrogen peroxide.

According to its website, the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is the largest integrated health care system in the United States, providing care to over nine million veterans. The average age of veterans is 58 — many with underlying health issues — making this one of the most vulnerable demographics to the virus.

“By giving this product away for free to veterans, we are definitely taking a financial hit. However, if it prevents the death or severe illness of just one veteran, then it is the right thing for Warfighter Hemp to do,” said Danyluk, who created Warfighter Hemp to offer alternative solutions for veterans struggling with PTSD and chronic pain.

Veterans, first responders and their caregivers can also register for a 50% discount across all Warfighter Hemp products.

Buy one, gift one. In these unsettling times, it feels good to give back to those who risk their lives for public safety.

TELL US, what are you doing to help those less fortunate during the COVID-19 pandemic?
