Cannabinoids hold significant promise as potent anti-inflammatory agents to treat ARDS(Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome) and Cytokine Storm Associated with SARS-CoV-2

THC is highly effective in preventing cytokine storm and ARDS in animal models. The fact that cells of the immune system produce endocannabinoids and express both CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors provides unique opportunities into investigating how the cannabinoid system can be engineered to suppress inflammation using both exogenous and endogenous cannabinoids. Because cannabinoids are […]

THC prevents mortality via immune cells apoptosis induction leading to cytokine storm suppression

Scientist team who found THC treatment on Staphylococcal Enterotoxin B(SEB) induced Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome mice leads to 100% survival updated their paper with the mechanism, and suggested the activation of cannabinoid receptors may serve as a therapeutic modality to treat ARDS associated with COVID19. Mohammed, A., F K Alghetaa, H., Miranda, K., Wilson, K., […]

CBD can reduce the cytokine storm and treat ARDS caused by COVID-19

Scientists showed a potential protective role for CBD during Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome(ARDS), and suggested CBD could be the treatment of COVID-19 by reducing the cytokine storm, protecting pulmonary tissues, and re-establishing inflammatory homeostasis. Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a life-threatening complication that makes patient unable to breathe as their lung become filled with […]

THC suppressed inflammatory cytokines led 100% survival of mice induced ARDS

Scientists investigated the effect of THC treatment on Staphylococcal Enterotoxin B(SEB) induced Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome(ARDS) in mice. While exposure to SEB resulted in acute mortality, treatment with THC led to 100% survival of mice. Mohammed, A., Alghetaa, H., Sultan, M., Singh, N. P., Nagarkatti, P., & Nagarkatti, M. (2020). Administration of Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) Post-Staphylococcal […]
