Researchers From The UK Have Published Their Findings On Cannabis As a Treatment for Long Covid

Researchers from Drug Science have published their findings on the potential of cannabis as a treatment for symptoms of long Covid.  This is the first report of its kind which sets the foundation on how cannabis can help alleviate symptoms of long Covid.  


Here's what we know about Long Covid:  


  • People infected with Covid tend to get better after a few days or weeks.

  • Long Covid is the new, reoccurring or ongoing health complications that you may experience after being infected with the virus that causes Covid. 

  • Signs of long Covid usually start within 4 weeks after contracting the virus.

  • Long Covid can last anywhere from a few weeks to months to years and in serious cases may cause disability.


Symptoms of long Covid can include:


  • Fatigue

  • Fever

  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath

  • Cough and chest pain

  • Palpitation (fast heart beat)

  • Joint and muscle pain

  • Headaches 

  • Sleeping problems

  • Difficulty in scent sensation and taste

  • Dizziness

  • Abdominal pain


The study showed multiple evidence that endorse the theory that cannabis like CBD can treat long Covid.  A 5% CBD formula full spectrum CBD oil was used for the research or Cannabis-Based Medical Product was used to treat long Covid during this research.


Researchers provided 21 of the same single-arm CBD oil formula to 12 participants with long Covid.  The participants were given up to 3 ml of the 5% CBD oil daily for 5 months with a decrease amount during the last month.  Questionnaires that were designed to collect health-related data and self-report of symptoms were collected.  Fitbit health devices were given to each participant to collect physiological information like heart rate, sleep, oxygen saturation and activity information.  


Findings showed that the medical CBD that was administered was safe and well tolerated among patients with long Covid.  However, a larger scale study is needed to see how cannabis can impact ailments like long Covid.  


Here's some popular uses of CBD:


  • Pain relief

  • Motion sickness

  • Nausea

  • Sleep and Insomnia

  • Muscle spasms

  • Managing seizures 

  • Stress and anxiety relief

  • Treat Parkinson's disease

  • Manage symptoms of Alzheimer's disease 

  • Depression and mental health

  • PTSD
