Is that why I haven’t gotten it yet?

I bought some sativa from local cannabis store and it made me tired. I have some edibles in my cupboard if anyone wants them.

Is it the cannabis or the staying on the couch eating Doritos that deters Covid?

This was tested in a petri dish. Lots of stuff works outside the body.

Hmmm, not sure about this as two friends of mine are big pot heads and caught it before the vaccines were available.

“according to a laboratory study published in the Journal of Nature Products.”

It didn't prevent the three pot smokers I know from getting covid. One thinks she got it from sharing a "blunt".

Wouldn't drawing weed smoke into infected lungs, then blowing it out into the room like an aerosol can... kinda defeat the purpose? I'm sure viruses ride smoke particles like surfboards.

I don't know, but a friend of mine was sharing a bong with her adult daughter and the daughter had Covid but didn't know it. They live in the same house. My friend got tested and never got Covid. It's a strange virus.

That's funny, r15. And yes, every pothead thinks it's some magical herb. It's got some benefits for sure, but it's not a panacea.

Smoking weed offers no protection at all. Once again, the scientifically illiterate media got it wrong. From the article linked below:

...They discovered that three compounds in hemp “had this high ability to bind to the spike protein” that allow the novel coronavirus to enter human cells so easily and thus spread Covid-19 so quickly.

The three compounds are cannabidiolic acid (CBD-A), cannabigerolic acid (CBG-A), and tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THC-A). In cannabis biochemistry, acids are the biosynthetic precursors to the cannabinoids that activate receptors in humans, i.e. “get you high.” This means, in simple terms, the cannabis compounds studied in this research are not the cannabis compounds most weed users seek when they go to the dispensary.

And they are not the compounds you ingest when eating an edible or smoking a joint, because these acids are transformed when heat is applied—from THC-A to THC, from CBD-A to CBD, from CBG-A to CBD. And neither CBD, THC, nor CBG are “active against the virus,” van Breemen said.

As van Breemen told VICE, a “dietary supplement” such as a gummy or a tincture that contains all three of these compounds might help people stay healthy. (Crucially, the researchers could not study THC-A due to federal drug laws.)

But since most commercially available cannabis, whether sold in licensed stores or on the traditional market, has very little CBD or CBG, most commercially available cannabis won’t do a thing for your Covid-19 situation—and no cannabis will do anything if you smoke it.

R40 But the dopers already swore that cannabis was a cure for cancer. A cure for baldness. A cure for juggler's despair. And it even removes stains from nuVinyl.

They're all just obsessed with their narcotics, and it rots their brain as they sink deeper into addiction.
