Study Conducted at Oregon State Shows that Hemp compounds prevent the Corona Virus from Entering Human Cells.

Does hemp prevent coronavirus?

Oregon State conducted  which proved that hemp compounds, specifically cannabigerolic acid (CBGa) and cannabidolic acid (CBDa) can prevent corona virus from entering human cells. This makes hemp one of the first potential all-natural discoveries for preventing corona virus from invading human cells. The findings of this study have tremendous implications for modern medicine because they demonstrate that the allosteric tendencies of hemp can potentially be used to prevent, and lessen the chances of contracting covid-19 and its variants. Furthermore, if hemp cannabinoids CBGa and CBDa prevent covid from entering human cells, then they can also have the potential to slow the spread and lessen severity of a corona virus infection in a covid positive patient. This study shows that these acidic hemp cannabinoids not only make it less like to contract covid, but also have the potential to make covid infections shorter and less severe.

What is CBDa and CBGa?

It is important to know that this study does not certify that all CBD products and compounds can or will prevent covid from entering human cells, in fact most CBD products are irrelevant to this study. The study specifically researches two rare acidic hemp cannabinoids, CBDa and CBGa, which are precursor compounds to the better known CBD and CBG molecules. All cannabinoids start in the cannabis plant as cannabigerolic acid (CBGa), meaning that THC, CBG, CBD, CBN, and all cannabinoids come from CBGa. For this reason, CBGa is often referred to as the mother of all cannabinoids. CBGa is present in the trichomes and biomass of the plant, and as the plant matures and develops, the CBGa converts into CBDa, THCa, and a small amount stays as CBGa. The less psychoactive cannabis plant “hemp” has been bread to produce high levels of CBGa, and CBDa, and lower level of THCa compared to its psychoactive counterparts cannabis indica, sativa, and ruderalis.

Acidic cannabinoids are rare to find in hemp products, because they are generally viewed as less valuable than their activated counterparts. THCa is a great example because in the acidic form, THCa has little to no psychoactive effects whereas its’ activated derivative THC is incredibly psychoactive. The same can be said for CBD and CBG in terms of providing mental and physical relief, they are more potent and effective activated than in the acidic form. The reason why cannabis is generally smoked for its effects rather than consumed raw is because the heat from smoking the herbs activates the cannabinoids (CBGa, CBDa, and THCa) quickly converting them into the activated forms (CBG, CBD, and THC) so the body can receive maximum benefits. The same principal is applied to the process of making edibles, the hemp or cannabis is heated to decarboxylate or activate the hemp cannabinoids to increase their perceived value in the mind and body.

Which hemp products can prevent covid? Where can I find CBGa and CBDa products?

Acidic hemp products are hard to come by, and can be tough to find. Most full spectrum products made from hemp extracts will generally not contain the acidic cannabinoids studied by Oregon State, because most extraction processes simultaneously activate the cannabinoids. Well over 90% of CBD and hemp products on the market are made with isolates and distillates; both extraction processes activate the cannabinoids leaving no acidic cannabinoids like CBGa and CBDa behind. Unfortunately, this is the case with most products on the market, because it is the easiest and most affordable way to produce hemp products. Our company Yin Yang Infusions offers a farm to table  full spectrum and full plant tincture and topical that contains high levels of CBGa and CBDa. We created these products through our proprietary multi-day extraction method that remains at low enough of a heat to extract the acidic cannabinoids without activating them in the process. Our full plant tincture and full plant topical are one of the only products you will find on the market that contain CBDa and CBGa. During this process we also extract out other naturally occurring hemp properties such as the chlorophyll, active cannabinoids, lipids, and terpenes. These added hemp properties make our full plant tincture and topical stronger and more effective milligram per milligram compared to broad spectrum options. We do not cut any corners and never skimp on quality, as we are a passionate, dedicated, and caring company that uses all natural and organic ingredients whenever possible.
