With the quickly growing pandemic of COVID-19 triggered by the new and challenging to treat zoonotic SARS-CoV2 coronavirus, there is an immediate need for new treatments and avoidance strategies that can help cut illness spread and reduce death. Inhibition of viral entry and thereby spread out make up possible therapeutic opportunities. Similar to other breathing pathogens, SARS-CoV2 is sent through respiratory droplets, with potential for aerosol and contact spread. It uses receptor-mediated entry into the human host via angiotensin-converting enzyme II (ACE2) that is expressed in lung tissue, in addition to oral and nasal mucosa, kidney, testes, and the intestinal system. Modulation of ACE2 levels in these gateway tissues might show a plausible method for reducing disease susceptibility. Marijuana sativa, especially one high in the anti-inflammatory cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD), has actually been proposed to modulate gene expression and inflammation and harbour anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties. Working under the Health Canada research study license, we have established over 800 new Marijuana sativa lines and extracts and assumed that high-CBD C. sativa extracts might be used to regulate ACE2 expression in COVID-19 target tissues. Screening C. sativa extracts using artificial human 3D models of oral, airway, and intestinal tract tissues, we recognized 13 high CBD C. sativa extracts that regulate ACE2 gene expression and ACE2 protein levels. Our preliminary information recommend that some C. sativa extract down-regulate serine protease TMPRSS2, another critical protein required for SARS-CoV2 entry into host cells. While our most efficient extracts require further large-scale validation, our study is important for the future analysis of the impacts of medical marijuana on COVID-19 The extracts of our most successful and novel high CBD C. sativa lines, pending more examination, might end up being a helpful and safe addition to the treatment of COVID-19 as an accessory treatment. They can be used to develop user friendly preventative treatments in the kind of mouthwash and throat rinse products for both medical and at-home usage. Such items ought to be evaluated for their prospective to reduce viral entry via the oral mucosa. Offered the present alarming and rapidly developing epidemiological scenario, every possible restorative opportunity and avenue must be thought about.
