With asthma I do find weed helps to clear the lungs out, cigs on their own don't. But with chest infections, esp the h1n1 that went around a while back, no smoking at all was wise or even possible. I wouldn't advise anything in regards to pneumonia, that has to be between the doctor and the patient.

They don't have too much CBD-rich bud in Dutch coffeeshops, they have some but not that much. ..most of the weed in coffeeshops is THC-rich weed, so i don't see that Holland is such a good example..

If the infection hits the lungs how is a topical gonna help? Where are you gonna rub it, on your chest? Is this what you have done yourself while having a pneumonia or just something that you came up with w/o any personal experience?



Smoking sure helped me to feel more comfortable, but some of you anti-smoke people just seem to know better? No personal experience with pneumonia and CBD-rich weed, but still you know what works and what makes it worse.
..Maybe god gave me a pair of proper lungs fit for a man, instead of a pair for old women, i dunno.




If anyone has personal experiences with what i suggested in the starting post, do chime in. ..if a topical CBD-rich cream rubbed on your chest helped, please report that as well.



Take care everyone. Glad it, Covid, doesn't seem to be as deadly/dangerous as the early warnings predicted.

the plant cannabinoids seem to be a way to prevent the Cytokine storm as an anti oxidant ... but if you are already sick then ingesting the plant cannabinoids may suppress the immune system making the virus replicate further ETC... we are still unsure how the phytocannabinoid effects the Gi proteins of the cells

Southern Alberta researchers say medical cannabis could help fight COVID-19
Published Tuesday, April 21, 2020
https://calgary.ctvnews.ca/southern-...d-19-1.4906249
(...)
The Kovalchuks say, based on the preliminary data and pending further investigations, anti-inflammatory high-CBD cannabis extracts can modulate the levels of the receptors in highly relevant tissues, such as the mouth, lungs and intestinal cells.
One of the receptors, known as ACE2, has now been shown to be a key gateway, to how the COVID-19 virus enters the body.
"The virus has the capacity to bind to it, and pull it into the cell, almost like a doorway," Olga says.

Other key receptors allow the virus to enter other cells more easily and multiply rapidly. But some cannabis extracts help to reduce inflammation and slow down the virus.

"Imagine a cell being a large building," says Igor. "Cannabinoids decrease the number of doors in the building by, say, 70 per cent, so it means the level of entry will be restricted. So, therefore, you have more chance to fight it."

The early discoveries indicate the cannabis extracts could be used in inhalers, mouthwash and throat gargle products for both clinical practice and at-home treatment.

The Kovalchuks haven’t tested the effects of smoking cannabis and say you won’t find any of these extracts at your local weed store.
"The key thing is not that any cannabis you would pick up at the store will do the trick," says Olga.

Over the past four years, they have tested hundreds of extracts, but only a small percentage have proven effective.
Those extracts contain high concentrations of CBD, but very low levels of THC, so users would not experience a "high."

The Kovalchuks say it’s a completely natural product, and has no side effects.

The research was conducted in partnership with the University of Lethbridge, Pathway RX Inc., and Swysh Inc., two companies focused on researching and developing custom cannabis therapies. Many of the cannabis varieties have been patented and are currently licensed to Pathway Rx’s partner Sundial Growers Inc., a Calgary-based cannabis licensed producer.

They stress their data is based on human tissue models and the next step would be to do clinical trials, something Igor says they are actively pursuing.

"Given the current dire and rapidly developing epidemiological situation, every possible therapeutic opportunity and avenue needs to be considered."
"We need to bring it to the people," says Olga. "We need to fight the beast."
