Study Shows Hemp Compounds Block Covid from Cells

The study, published in the Journal of Natural Products, was a collaboration between scientists at Oregon Health & Science University and Oregon State University.The laboratory study used chemical screening techniques to discover that a pair of distinct cannabinoid acids in hemp — known as cannabigerolic acid, or CBGA, and cannabidiolic acid, or CBDA — bind to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, blocking a critical step in the process the virus uses to infect people. The study was led by Richard van Breeman, Ph.D., a researcher with Oregon State’s Global Hemp Innovation Center, College of Pharmacy and Linus Pauling Institute. “Prior to COVID-19 pandemic, we were profiling secondary compounds in hemp extracts in collaboration with OSU Global Hemp Innovation Center,” said Ruth...

Proof that whole plant CBD makes better medicine!

If you're a wholesale customer of Highgarden Farm you have probably heard these words from me; "I decided to use the entire plant (sans the stalk) because, while i can't prove it, i think there are compounds in the hemp that we don't fully understand but are highly medicinal".  Or something to that affect. 1 Well we finally have our proof! 2 Thanks to the wonderful folks in Israel who once again are leading the charge in CBD research we now know that our hunch was correct.
