Researchers showed that two cannabinoid acids present in hemp genotypes of cannabis – cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) and cannabidiolic acid (GBDA) – can connect to the virus’s spike protein, that infect cells with COVID-19.

When attached to the spike protein, these chemicals have the ability to block the virus from entering cells and causing infection, opening up new paths for disease prevention and treatment.

Richard van Breeman, who led the study said to Dayton 247: “They are not controlled substances like THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, and have a good safety profile in humans”.

In reaction to the news, one individual on Twitter said, “Anecdotal evidence on my part says this is accurate. I had a hunch this whole time. I’ve been exposed so many times, and continue to be exposed daily if not weekly. Haven’t succumbed yet!”
