If you listen to the news or have read about COVID-19, you may have heard about cytokine storms. Cytokine storms are a side-effect of a virus, bacteria, or foreign substance that causes the immune system to overreact with an unrelenting barrage of signaling molecules called cytokines.
Unfortunately, the exaggerated immune response is dangerous to the patient. Instead of destroying the infection or invader, the cytokines damage healthy cells and cause inflammation. They can debilitate multiple organ systems at the same time.
CBD’s remarkable health benefits come from its capacity to modulate key endocannabinoid receptors. For example, the ACE2 receptor allows the coronavirus to inject its genetic expression into human cells and proliferate.
Eybna is a research and development company in Israel dedicated to understanding botanical medicine. They are testing a proprietary formulation of 30 plant terpenes to treat inflammatory conditions such as the cytokine storm syndrome found in COVID-19 patients.
Early results show the combination of terpenes reduces inflammation in a similar way to CBD on its own. Scientists are looking into the exact mechanisms these natural, cannabis-derived plant terpenes use to create the anti-inflammatory effects.
So far, results indicate that, like CBD, the terpenes interact with the ACE2 receptor and can protect critical organs and tissues from viral invasion.
Avoiding viral exposure and boosting immune function with powerful supplements helps keeps us healthy. CBD is one outstanding tool in our arsenal of wellness, and our mood also matters. Studies show optimism boosts immune function. Whatever we do to increase balance and vitality has blossoming benefits.
