Did you hear about the promising results of CBD oil preventing COVID-19? Well, if you’ve been on the fence about trying CBD oil, please read this article first. This article will give you insight into CBD oil’s role in preventing infection and transmission. As a CBD oil company, we want you to be excited about the benefits of CBD oil, but not at the expense of the truth or your health. So, let’s dive into these new findings so you can make a more informed decision about trying CBD oil.
Oregon State University’s COVID-19 Cannabis Study
The cannabis study conducted by a team of researchers at Oregon State University was published in the Journal of Natural Products in January of this year (2022). According to lead researcher Dr. Van Breeman, “Our interest has always been in discovering natural products that have medicinal value.”
As part of the study, his team screened a variety of botanicals used as dietary supplements to find natural products that stop the virus from infecting cells. Their lab tests proved that cannabis compounds CBGA and CBDA prevent the COVID-19 virus from contacting the human cell.
Cannabis Compounds Prevent COVID-19 In Lab Tests, Not Humans
Through lab tests, the researchers at Oregon State University proved two cannabis compounds, CBGA and CBDA, can bind to the surface of the spike protein of the COVID-19 virus. By attaching to the spike protein of the virus, they prevent infection. Their research also showed these compounds were equally effective against other variants of the virus. As promising as these results are, there’s still more work to be done. Clinical trials are now needed to confirm similar results in humans.
Is It Still Worth Taking CBD Oil?
The simple answer is yes. CBD oil helps reduce anxiety, eases aches and pains, and improves sleep. This proof comes from personal testimonials from those who use it daily (including myself). Here’s a link to my weekly vLog series on YouTube called “My CBD Oil Journey.”

The best reason to take CBD oil is to improve your health and experience a higher quality of life. Until they conduct clinical trials, it’s still too early to tell how effective CBD oil is in protecting you from the COVID-19 virus.

There are a lot of articles and videos being shared all over the internet about the Oregon State University study. Please do not rush to buy our CBD oil or any other CBD oil because of this study. The lead researcher, Dr. Van Breeman, openly states additional studies are needed to confirm effectiveness in humans.
Please be patient when it comes to taking CBD oil, especially with the hopes of protecting yourself against COVID-19. We encourage you to do research and speak with a medical professional before using CBD oil.
