The global pandemic, COVID-19, has caused havoc around the world, calling a global lockdown and economic shutdown. With the increasing number of infected cases and deaths by COVID-19, researchers are constantly working on studies for potential treatments and vaccines to fight the deadly virus.
While the number of recovered cases gives hope to researchers to work towards a permanent cure, different compounds and medications are being studied by researchers around the world, including BCG (used traditionally against tuberculosis) and cannabis, etc.
Israeli researchers have started researching cannabis as a potential treatment for COVID-19. Three clinical trials were launched by Israeli researchers. The clinical trials will utilize the anti-inflammatory properties of Cannabidiol (CBD) as potential COVID-19 treatment.
Israeli scientists have launched these clinical trials to investigate whether cannabis can play an effective role in the progression of the COVID-19, by either stopping or slowing it. Although lung experts and researchers have advised caution regarding smoking cannabis as it could exacerbate COVID-19 and its spread, Israeli scientists are determined to study cannabidiol (CBD) alongside the existing treatment options, hoping for CBD to be a possible solution.
An announcement of the collaboration with Tel Aviv University was announced by InnoCan Pharma last week, to establish CBD medicine through exosomes, or the small cell structures that are created by the multiplication of stem cells. Although an unconventional method, it will utilize the exosomes as “homing missiles”, due to its ability to uniquely target cell organs that are initially damaged by COVID-19. Researchers further believe in the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD to be able to repair the damaged cells through a synergistic effect.
After the attack of COVID-19 on the respiratory system, scientists will make patients the recipients of CBD-enriched exosomes, with the use of an inhalation device. CBD has been shown to help with the regulation of the body’s immune system along with the reduction of inflammation throughout the body, according to previous studies.
A second clinical trial is expected to be conducted in the coming weeks. The clinical trial will include 10 COVID-19 patients that are currently undergoing treatment in Israel’s Rabin Medical Center. Traditional steroids will be combined with CBD by doctors. Doctors believe that the therapeutic potential of the steroids will be enhanced by CBD. Stero Biotechs is conducting the trial, in collaboration with Mor Research Application. If proven to be successful, the trial has already planned to expand treatment to 40 additional patients.
Founder and CEO of Stero Biotechs, David Bassa, said in a statement that they have estimated that their CBD treatment can further enhance the current treatment that is given to the patients who are in a life-threatening condition due to the infection by COVID-19. David further added that the hospitalized COVID-19 patients are mostly the recipient of the treatment with steroids. David explained that their study is essentially planned to be able to demonstrate the benefits that a combined solution with steroid treatments, could bring about. According to David, they are also very hopeful for this study and believe that it will lead to benefits at a faster rate, for the growing number of infected COVID-19 patients in Israel and around the world.
Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Medical Center has launched the third study. This study will focus on the investigation as to whether the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD could potentially lower respiratory symptoms that are commonly experienced in moderated infected COVID-19 patients.
Intentions to study the role of cannabis that it plays in slowing down the progression of COVID-19 in infected patients is announced by Canadian researchers. Canadian researchers further believe that the anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis could provide a crucial role in potential treatment.
Who owns the Suspicious Marijuana Farm Near Middleton Home?
The Police discovered a Marijuana Farm near Kate Middleton’s family home in Buckleberry in Berkshire. A power outage led to the discovery of the illegal farming of marijuana right next to Middleton’s 18 acrea estate, on Thursday.

The police has asked the public to contact police if they have any information regarding the suspicious factory hidden in the barns. The investigating officer told the media that they are still carrying out an investigation. They are confident that they will soon get to the bottom of this matter.

COVID-19 – Florida Medical Cannabis Industry Sees Significant Sales Spike
Despite the global pandemic and its consequences, the medical cannabis industry of Florida continues to flourish. Moreover, sales have increased in comparison to sales before the outbreak. Medical cannabis has gained popularity with a consistent increase in demand. Consequently, this gives an appropriate example regarding the stability of the cannabis interest despite the times of an economic crisis.
Weekly sales of medical cannabis in Florida
The first 2 months of 2020 were somewhat a state of normalcy. This was the time when the outbreak was under control. Hence, no government was forced to take drastic measures such as global lockdown, economic shutdown, etc. During the time, the sales in the dispensaries in Florida were on an average of 22,800 ounces of smokable MMJ weekly.
While these sales were during the first 10 weeks, the next week of March 13 recorded higher sales. There was a trade of 36,400 ounces during the week of March 13. That resulted in a rise of 38% in sales compared to the last week. This was the week when COVID-19 became a global concern and many countries began to issue stay at home orders.
Florida’s program records the sales figures generated starting from Friday and ending the following Thursday, to create a weekly sales report. However, the week of April 17 was another essential week to record sales. During that week, the Florida program recorded that sales in Florida resulted in a combined 39,290 ounces of the flower.
The sales during that week could be understandable due to the 2 sales boosters that aligned. The first was the initial round of the COVID-19 relief fund. During this time, the stimulus checks happened to be the primary issue that Americans’ bank accounts dealt with. The second was the cannabis holiday, 4/20, which is unofficial due to the current laws.
The market’s experience of a rise in sales on a weekly basis was not infamous. However, there was a record of consistently higher sales during this pandemic in comparison to the time before. Moreover, the rise in consumption led to this consistent period of the rise in demand. Both existing, and new patients, led to the rise in consumption.
The data available regarding the sales made in the first 10 weeks of 2020, led to the generation of an average figure. It was determined that the average medical cannabis patient obtained the average amount of 2 grams of the flower, weekly.
There was a rise in the figures during the past month in total, or the 4 weekly reports, from May 1 to May 28. The average medical cannabis patient, on average purchased 2.9 grams. This resulted in a rise of 43%.
Legal actions taken by the government
Furthermore, due to tot the global lockdown and economic crisis, there was a delay in many legal processes. However, the government recently granted permission to the medical cannabis patients for the renewal of their registrations. There were restrictions regarding the renewal which still banned in-person communication but encouraged teleconference for the renewal. However, Florida’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use did not reportedly take any substantive actions for the strengthening of the industry during a crisis as such.
The state included medical cannabis dispensaries in the list of essential businesses. The Florida government released the list early in the pandemic, in March and included the unaffected companies and businesses during the lockdown. Hence, Florida’s medical cannabis retailers continued the delivery of their cannabis products to patients.
There are different concerns that come along. The question that arises, however, is if this rise in both Florida’s medical cannabis market, and the cannabis industry generally, will be consistent or not. he cannabis industry hopes for the restoration of the economy before their added, shifting coronavirus unemployment advantages cease.
