Cannabis and Ace 2 receptors?
Just came across this article on studies of cannabis and ace2 receptors, not peer reviewed, but definitely worth a look/see. Hope Chris will address this as it would be lovely to know more, and I have a difficult time interpreting these findings. Thanks so much. https://www.dw.com/en/coronavirus-the-tide-is-coming-for-medicinal-cannabis/a-53371342
That’s a lot of verbosity to vaguely say they think CBD can “modulate ACE2 levels”. The main reason cannabis (the swarm of cannabinoids and terpenes) can help against Covid, and any other disease, is (physically) because it modulates homeostasis itself, as shown by pioneering cannabinoids researcher Prof. Robert Melamede, or (hyperdimensionally) because it brings down or merges the 4th density template-level reality (astral realm / dream world) with the 3rd density, allowing you to more effortlessly/unconsciously shift yourself to a parallel reality in which you’re cured or the disease state doesn’t exist (the same mechanism of energy medicine used in China, India, homeopathy, placebo effect, etc).
Did you read the links in the article? Or you think it says, if we smoke cannabis, use homeopathy, etc, we create astral immunity magically? Your comment is a bit cryptic. Cannabis is serious medicine these days fyi: so many conditions it helps cannot even be listed. I had hoped someone would take my inquiry seriously. This is my first time in the forum.

That’s exactly right, cannabis is magic! But not nearly as much as DMT.
I agree that cannabis works, but not only because of “modulating ACE2 receptors”, that’s all I was saying. They didn’t explain how or why. Modulating how, by downregulation or upregulation? Is it because of the smoke, or because some cannabinoid or terpene does something?
God I hope this is true.
I saw it yesterday also, on one of the many daily newsletters, I forget which.
But, honestly, I read the preprint, and it disappointingly sounds like they are just publishing an ad for one of their proprietary strains / hybrids. They leave out a lot of data. They have almost none, it’s like just a hypothesis.
“…using artificial human 3D models of oral, airway, and intestinal tissues…”
If you read the comments on the preprint site, when questioned about THC/CBD levels they responded and sort of claim trade secrets.
It just smells like they are trying to drive sales. Hope not, hope it works, or CBD maybe at least. Doubt we will ever see that study. Wouldn’t have trouble finding volunteers.
Deciding to err on the side of caution, in case they are right, I added some good old THC / CBD to my nightly vitamins.
I noticed no adverse medical results, hehe
@cat whatever: “I had hoped someone would take my inquiry seriously.”
CBD & THC can certainly be medicine, I take it seriously . I’m sure many others do also. I don’t think this is the study to prove much tho.
Every so often I swing by:
They have some interesting reads.
