Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.  - Albert Einstein

Today we'd like to talk about a study done by Oregon State University that shows CBDa hemp flower and CBGa hemp flower block COVID-19 from entering human cells. 

A link to the published hemp study can be found here. 

You can find a selection of Biosync Industries home grown CBDa hemp flower and CBGa hemp flower here.  

The study was published on Tuesday, January 11th in the Journal of Natural Products and was performed by Oregon State’s Global Hemp Innovation Center in the College of Pharmacy. 

The quick summary, it is legit folks! 

According to the research team, CBGa hemp flower and CBDa hemp flower act in the same manor as the existing vaccines.

“Van Breemen and collaborators including scientists at Oregon Health & Science University, found that a pair of cannabinoid acids bind to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, blocking a critical step in the process the virus uses to infect people.”

“The compounds are cannabigerolic acid (CBGa), and cannabidiolic acid (CBDa), and the spike protein is the same drug target used in COVID-19 vaccines and antibody therapy.” 

The team confirmed that CBDa hemp flower and CBGa hemp flower also combat the existing variants that are spreading across the globe.

“Our research showed the hemp compounds were equally effective against variants of SARS-CoV-2, including variant B.1.1.7, which was first detected in the United Kingdom, and variant B.1.351, first detected in South Africa.”

The two compounds are abundant in hemp flower, and are NOT controlled substances since becoming federally legal in the 2018 farm bill.

“These cannabinoid acids are abundant in hemp and in many hemp extracts,” van Breemen said. “They are not controlled substances like THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, and have a good safety profile in humans.” 

CBDa hemp flower and CBGa hemp flower can be safely taken orally to combat COVID-19.

“These compounds can be taken orally and have a long history of safe use in humans, van Breemen said. They have the potential to prevent as well as treat infection by SARS-CoV-2.”

It is very important to understand that CBDa hemp flower and CBGa hemp flower ARE NOT COMMON IN RETAIL FORMULATIONS. The majority of CBD tincture formulations have been converted at extraction from CBDa oil or CBGa oil to pure CBD oil and CBG oil. The acidic forms of CBDa and CBGa are available in RAW CBG AND CBD HEMP FLOWER or COLD PRESSED EXTRACTION. 

In the upcoming weeks we will show you how to use our raw hemp flower to add CBDa and CBGa to your daily routines and teach you about cold pressed extraction and why we use it in all our tinctures and consumables. 

Much Love,
