Researchers See Promising Results Using Cannabis Terpenes To Treat COVID-19
A recent study examining the use of cannabis terpene formulation – NT-VRL on inflammatory conditions has had some promising results in treating cytokine storm syndrome caused by COVID-19.
Cytokine storm syndrome is a form of inflammatory response where white blood cells are activated and release inflammatory cytokines, which the activate more white blood cells. The syndrome can cause symptoms like fever, fatigue, and vomiting, but can advance to a point where a patient might need a ventilator to stay alive or might die.
Early results from the study, which took place in Israel, show that the terpene formulation combined with CBD is twice as effective at using CBD on its own as well as twice as effective as Dexamethasone, a common corticosteroids treatment for inflammation, Health Europa reports.
