The compounds are found in hemp and can be taken orally or combine with the coronavirus vaccine
The compounds, a pair of cannabinoid acids, bind to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein
This blocks the virus from infecting human cells, thus stopping COVID-19
Specific cannabis compounds can prevent the virus that causes COVID-19 from entering human cells.
Researchers at Oregon State University identified a pair of cannabinoid acids that bind to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, blocking a critical step in the process the virus uses to infect people.
The team found the cannabis compounds, which can be taken orally and are abundantly found in hemp, blocked the alpha and beta variants from infecting the human cells - but the team notes those are the only two variants studied in this research.
