Default Weed Cures COVID

Cannibis will save you from The Covids. It's science. Biden's pandemic is over!


Quote:
According to a peer-reviewed paper published this week in the Journal of Natural Products, titled "Cannabinoids Block Cellular Entry of SARS-CoV-2 and the Emerging Variants," at least three compounds naturally occurring in the cannabis plant were shown in lab tests to be effective at stopping coronavirus molecules from entering human cells. The mechanism effectively mimics the activity of antibodies, with the cannabis compounds attaching themselves to the virus' spike protein, one of the authors told Salon. The study concludes:

LOL it's in "journal of natural products". The actual abstract is a mess of word salad and specious claims

https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.jnatprod.1c00946

This is in the abstract, but has nothing to do with anything when it comes to efficacy.

Quote:
Natural products are the most successful source of drugs and drug leads in the history of pharmacology. (18,19) Although combinatorial chemistry currently receives more emphasis for lead discovery by the pharmaceutical industry, (20) nature continues to be a source of unique chemical structural diversity for new drug discovery. (21) Approximately two-thirds of new small-molecule drugs since 1981 have been natural products, derivatives of natural products, natural product pharmacophores, or mimics of natural products.
Here's the claim... basically they say compounds in weed could maybe potentially block Covid from infecting cells... cause they sure look chemically like they could.... whether they actually do, especially in a living creature, nobody knows... .... That's it, though. It's all speculation

Quote:
Ligands with high affinity to the receptor binding domain on the S1 protein have the potential to function as entry inhibitors and prevent infection of human cells by SARS-CoV-2. (13) For example, small peptides derived from the heptad repeat regions of SARS-CoV-1 spike S2 subunit have been shown to inhibit SARS-CoV infection by the interference of fusion with target cells.
Then there's a bunch more specious claims that have nothing to do with anything other than advocating for weed legalization. See! Weed is a miracle drug... so this new idea must work.

Quote:
Hemp (Cannabis sativa L., Cannabaceae) is used for fiber, food, and animal feed, and various hemp extracts and compounds have become popular additions to cosmetics, body lotions, dietary supplements, and food. Over 170 secondary metabolites including some unique compounds are produced by hemp (30,31) including flavonoids, diterpenes, triterpenes, lignans, and cannabinoids. Orally bioavailable, (32) there are at least 70 cannabinoids including cannabidiols, Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinols, Δ8-tetrahydrocannabinols, cannabigerols, cannabinols, cannabichromenes, and cannabitriols, and in 2018, the U.S. FDA approved a cannabidiol isolate (Epidiolex), for the treatment of seizures associated with certain types of epileptic seizures.

Even if it is proven to 100% prevent/cure this virus, Texas and Florida won't allow it

I had gummies a couple years ago and nearly exploded. I refuse to let that horrible experience be my last weed memory, so I'll have to smoke a joint or something in the far future. Edibles are not for me.

I've lived in states where it's legal for a while now, and it seems weird to me that people have to buy it on the street. Like my whole teens and early 20s was an experience that's gonna die one day.

I only ate 10mg total (5+5 2 hours later) and it was super mild. I never really thought about how easy it would be to dose after it became regulated. Always just used to smoking or eating what is probably like 10x that amount, who knows, and getting fucking wrecked. Definitely way more comparable to being tipsy than I ever thought weed could be.

Even in Florida, medicinal is legal and small amounts are similar to traffic citations.

Once I move up to Mass and get settled I may start partaking more often. For now, I enjoyed it, it didn't trigger cravings for other drugs, and I had a good experience with a friend. He always said he'd never do it because he had this hang-up with smoking (mom died from lung cancer when he was a kid) and seeing people around him go down slippery slopes, but he told me his therapist had been saying he might want to try it and he asked to do it with me, so it felt right.

as a colorblind person (still racist, don't worry), the fact that many colours are perceived as completely different instead of slightly lighter or darker shades is hard to understand.

my theory is that the perception of colours is a matter of opinion.

I pretty much stopped smoking weed this year. HPPD finally got me.

I went from about an oz/week to a gram/month.

Itís weird. I miss it. But I also like not smoking 2 joints before i get out of bed. But i also miss smoking 2 joints before i get out of bed.

Do i have to start smoking it again or do the past 15 years of daily use have me set for life?

I had HPPD for a couple of years. I still have some weirdness when I look at blank walls but otherwise it's much better.

Hi.

Hey friend

The ironic thing is, after nearly 10 years clean of benzos, guess what the doc gave me to come down? It helped though.
It was pretty bad for the first couple months but Iíve leveled out more or less. Or at least Iíve learned to live with it. Now just giving it time before easing back in again. To everything a season.
Mushrooms in Oaxaca, man.

Now I have a half lb of sticky icky collecting dust.

What are you up to?

10 years? Jesus, hard to believe. I remember us talking about you getting off of them.

I work from home now, have a couple of different main clients I do annotation and research for, mostly. Also have learned some programming, been involved in some research projects (machine learning related), etc. Last year was incredible work-wise, but it looks like my main project is ending probably, so that sucks.

Overall, I've been good otherwise. Probably will be moving to Massachusetts in the summer to be closer to some friends and get the fuck out of Florida. My dad died from COVID a few months ago, but he wasn't vaccinated and we weren't close.

Are you in the States?

I smoke errday. Usually just a bong hit of sativa in the evening and a bong hit of indica before bed.

It works for me, and I'm covid-free so it's obviously true.
