Does Cannabis Prevent or Kill the Coronavirus?



Does Cannabis Prevent or Kill the Coronavirus

Weed is known for its various healing aspects, that’s why it’s not surprising for most cannabis affluents to ask the question, does weed kill coronavirus? 

There are no recorded studies about research tests conducted between cannabinoids and the coronavirus. From the known traits of cannabis, we know that weed may have medical properties that might harm or help someone battling or trying to prevent the virus. However, smoking cannabis is more likely to increase your risk of contracting Covid-19 only because smoking makes your lungs more vulnerable to infection.

Dr. Donald Tashkin is a UCLA professor with extensive experience in studying the effects of smoking on the lungs. Dr. Tashkin formerly discovered that smoking weed may temporarily increase the symptoms of bronchitis, including coughing, inflammation in the lungs, and phlegm production. Although the effects were much less compared to those found for tobacco, Tashkin insists that smoking anything increases risk.

Doctors generally recommend avoiding any kind of smoking during this pandemic outbreak. And because Covid-19 deaths are caused by respiratory cases, the best option would be to avoid cannabis smoking as well.

But if you are a patient who needs to use cannabis for various treatments, don’t panic. You can find other ways to consume the drug, be it sublingually through tinctures or by consuming edibles.

How Can Weed Assist with Coronavirus?

Cannabis is known to numb inflammation and help with pain; on the other hand, it can also dampen the immune system’s response to a new infection. The immunosuppressive qualities of weed come from the fact that it reduces inflammation. This suppressive property is very useful in fighting viruses that use inflammation to replicate. However, it is not clear from the research available whether these immune effects would be helpful or harmful for coronavirus.

Cannabis has a known ability to reduce certain comorbidities of the coronavirus. Coronavirus can be complicated by conditions such as diabetes and obesity, and cannabis is known to reduce incidents of both. Weed also helps patients reduce the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, which can complicate coronavirus. Cannabis may help curb the effects of other illnesses and conditions that may put you at greater risk of contracting the virus, but that does not necessarily mean that smoking weed will prevent or kill the virus.

Although there may be no indication of the drug’s ability to cure coronavirus, cannabis has been proven to have disease-prevention qualities that show potential in helping rather than harming the advancement of coronavirus; this is because of the drug’s ability to dampen inflammation. According to researchers, a significant number of severe cases of the late stages of Covid-19 is an overactive immune response called a cytokine storm. These storms cause such extensive inflammations damaging the host’s own body, which leads to death.

What Can be Done?

Scientists are looking at a class of drugs called IL-6 cytokine inhibitors. The drugs which are currently on the market have severe side effects. On the other hand, both CBD and THC have demonstrated abilities to inhibit IL-6, indicating that they could be able to help bring down cytokine storms.

However, researchers still caution that it may be too early to assume cannabis as a treatment.

“We know that cannabis has profound anti-inflammatory action, but we don’t fully understand how to harness that, especially when it comes to treating this specific illness,” says cannabis researcher Dr. Sue Sisley.

Final Words

Further research on the anti-inflammatory effects of weed is necessary for both the cannabis flower and root; both of which have similarly been used to decrease inflammatory effects. Engage us on the comment section on what your thoughts are when it comes to corona and weed.

Lisa Montgomery is EXECUTED: The First Female Federal Prisoner on Death Row in Nearly 70 Years



Lisa Montgomery is EXECUTED

Disclaimer: This article contains graphic content. Read at your discretion. 

The first woman on federal death row in nearly 70 years, Lisa Montgomery, was executed by lethal injection. She was pronounced dead on Wednesday at 1.31 am EST. 

Lisa was executed after an 11th-hour order from the Supreme Court, which cleared all legal obstacles that would hinder her execution. The execution was done at the Federal Correctional Complex in Terre Haute, Indiana. 

Her execution could be the final federal execution under outgoing President Donald Trump. Lisa Montgomery was the 11th federal death row inmate to be executed under Trump’s administration.

Her execution was initially scheduled for 6 pm on Tuesday but as delayed after her lawyers appealed the execution. They argued Montgomery was ineligible for the death penalty given her severe mental illness which would have been proved through a competency hearing. The Supreme Court, however, threw this case out.

“The government stopped at nothing in its zeal to kill this damaged and delusional woman. Lisa Montgomery’s execution was far from justice,” said Kelley Henry, Montgomery’s lawyer, in a statement.

Montgomery was sentenced to death in 2008 for the 2004 murder of a pregnant woman, cutting the foetus out and kidnapping it.

Montgomery introduced herself to her victim via an online chat room for rat terrier owners. Chatting with Stinnett under a false name, she pretended that she too was pregnant. They began exchanging e-mails about their pregnancies.

This is an undated photo showing Lisa M. Montgomery, a resident of Melvern, Kan. Montgomery was arrested late Friday, Dec. 17, 2004, and charged with kidnapping resulting in death in a case of a woman being murdered and her 8-month-old fetus cut out of her womb. The baby of Bobbie Jo Stinnett was recovered and was reported in good condition on Saturday. (AP Photo/Maryville Daily Forum)

Montgomery arrived at Stinnett’s home in Missouri under the guise of purchasing a rat terrier puppy. She then strangled her 8-months pregnant victim from behind before using a knife to cut her baby out of the womb.

She then took off with the infant leaving Stinnett for dead. Stinnett’s mother, Becky Harper, found her daughter lying in a pool of blood with her womb slashed open and called 911.

Montgomery was arrested in her home on December 17, 2004, in her Kansas home.

5 Times Billionaire Elon Musk ‘Messed Up’ : Did he just Smoke Weed on TV?



5 Times Billionaire Elon Musk 'Messed Up

Elon Musk has to be the one billionaire who doesn’t care about painting or portraying perfection. This is what sets apart South African entrepreneur and self-proclaimed meme-lord from the other billionaires earning him the large following he has. Below are five controversies of the Tesla, SpaceX, and PayPal co-founder.

1. Making Tesla Private then Backtracking

In a couple of tweets, Musk teased buying out Tesla’s free-float stock at a price of $420, adding he already secured the funding for the same. At a price tag well over $10 billion, this essentially meant one of the biggest ever corporate buyouts to render Tesla a private company. The tweets which sparked a federal investigation angered Tesla board members and made ‘420’ into a cipher for weed. In an interview, he revealed that he tweeted while under the influence of marijuana.

2. Suggesting a Rating Site for Journalists

After Tesla was portrayed in a negative light due to production issues with the Tesla’s Model 3 sedan, Musk suggested the creation of a journalist rating website. Close to 700,000 people on Twitter supported him in vetting journalists’ credibility. He felt that the media was painting his company negatively to maximize clicks and earn advertising dollars. “The hypocrisy of big media companies who lay claim to the truth, but publish only enough to sugarcoat the lie, is why the public no longer respects them,” shared a vexed Musk.

3. Smoking Weed While on Joe Rogan Experience Podcast

Musk got in trouble for smoking pot on camera while on Joe Rogan’s popular podcast. While on the show that streamed live in September 2018, Musk also drank whiskey. In his defense, Musk smoked marijuana after being assured it was legal in California. As a result, NASA reviewed workplace safety at Musk’s SpaceX, which was developing its spacecraft.

4. Tweeting that Tesla’s Stock was Too High

Everyone was shocked when Musk admitted in a tweet that Tesla’s stock price was overvalued. Would you do that? His tweet resulted in Tesla’s price, crashing by 9% ($13 billion). The CEO tweeted, “Tesla stock price is too high imo.”

5. Thai Cave Rescue

In 2018, the tech billionaire offered to provide a submarine to help efforts of rescuing a children’s soccer team in northern Thailand stranded inside a flooded cave. After British cave diver Vernon Unsworth questioned the submarine’s utility, which was ultimately unused, Musk dubbed him a “child rapist.” Musk later apologized for unfounded claims. He apologized again after Unsworth’s lawyers threatened to sue him.
