The coronavirus pandemic continues to plague the world, with more and more people unfortunately being infected with every passing day.
A handful of countries that were previously battling significant outbreaks appear to be containing the spread of the virus, which is great news. Sadly, many more are struggling.
Researchers and scientists are scrambling to find anything that will help cure those that already have the virus.
According to at least one researcher in Canada, cannabis may help people avoid getting the virus in the first place, at least that is what the researcher and his team are claiming.
Dr. Igor Kovalchuk led a team of researchers at the University of Lethbridge that examined over 400 cannabis strains to see if any of them helped reduce the chances of someone being infected by the coronavirus strain.
Of the 400 strains examined, roughly a dozen of them showed promising results when cannabinoids were extracted from them according to the researchers.
