Hemp compounds prevent COVID-19 from entering human cells, study finds

Compounds have ‘potential to prevent as well as treat infection’ of coronavirus, study concludes

A new study from Oregon State University has identified hemp compounds that show the ability to prevent the COVID-19 virus from entering human cells.

The study found that hemp compounds cannabigerolic acid, or CBGA, and cannabidiolic acid, CBDA, were equally effective against variants of the coronavirus.

Hemp is a source of fiber, food, animal feed and is also used as a textile and in products ranging from cosmetics to lotions to dietary supplements.

The study’s abstract specifically states that hemp has a long history of safe human use and the isolated hemp compounds “have the potential to prevent as well as treat infection by SARS-CoV-2.”

According to the research, the compounds bind to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, which blocks a crucial step in the process the virus uses to infect people.

“Cell entry inhibitors, like the acids from hemp, could be used to prevent SARS-CoV-2 infection and also to shorten infections by preventing virus particles from infecting human cells,” said van Breemen.
