International Journal of Biological Macromolecules published a paper from South Korean scientists showing THC and CBD components of cannabis stick to the SARS-CoV-2 virus's replication system to prevent proliferation, while also acting on the cell's second cannabinoid receptor (CB2 R) to regulate cytokine storm.

The researchers found that Δ9-THCA, Δ9-THC, CBN, CBD, and CBDA of cannabinoid compounds binds in a stable manner to SARS-CoV-2 Mpro (main protease) which is necessary for SARS-CoV-2 virus replication. Cannabinoids were more potent than reference drugs such as Remdesivir or Chloroquine, and furthermore, it stopped cytokine storm which was always the problem.
Ignorance is the root cause of suffering.
We can be FREE from this pandemic.
I wish this news could spread to the world so that everyone suffering from COVID-19 will be free from the stupid MASK and have a happy new year.
Warm wishes for 420
