BREAKING NEWS: CBD Blocks COVID
According to the American Chemical Society and American Society of Pharmacognosy (ACS), CBD blocks Covid. “Cannabinoids Block Cellular Entry of SARS-CoV-2 and the Emerging Variants.” What does that mean? The non psychoactive CBD acids, CBGa and CBDa from hemp bind to the spike protein of COVID-19 and prevent infection through your epithelial cells (cells that line the surface of your skin, blood vessels, organs and more).
During the recent study published in the 2022 American Chemical Society and American Society of Pharmacognosy, (ACS) a team of scientists proved “cannabinoids, isolated or in hemp extracts, have the potential to prevent as well as treat infection by SARS-CoV-2.
During a chemical screening at Oregon State University, CBD acids (specifically–CBGA and CBDA) were discovered to combat coronavirus. Their study showed how the mentioned CBD acids bound to Covid’s spike proteins and blocked one pathway the pathogen uses to spread to people.
While the study was performed in a lab with no human case test subjects, the study was compared against alpha and beta variants of the SARS-CoV2 pathogen, with success. Human testing is needed to verify the results comparing the infection success between those who take CBD and those who do not; however, this breakthrough is PROMISING and HOPEFUL!
What are CBGa and CBDa?
CBDa and CBGa are the raw acidic form of CBD and CBG before they become what we know as CBD and CBG. CBGa (cannabigerolic acid), is sometimes called the mother of all cannabinoids, meaning it can be processed into other raw cannabinoids. As well as the newly discovered COVID protection benefit, it also helps with reducing inflammation, helps boost appetite, balances emotions, and even holds some anti-bacterial properties. CBDa (cannabidiolic acid), is best known for its topnotch bioavailability and also reduces inflammation, pain, and balances serotonin levels key to your body’s core functions.
Is CBD Safe?
You will not find a blanket statement that says CBD is safe because it is a substance like Tylenol; not all people can take Tylenol even though most babies can. CBD like any substance with medicinal properties has risks; however, CBD is largely well-tolerated by the population. If you plan to use products containing CBD, talk to your doctor first.
CBD side effects can include:
- Dry mouth
- Reduced appetite
- Drowsiness and fatigue
But compare that to COVID Symptoms which can include:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
- Trouble breathing
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion
- Inability to wake or stay awake
- Pale, gray, or blue-colored skin, lips, or nail beds, depending on skin tone
As is the same with any medication or medicinal substance, you must ask yourself, “Do the benefits outweigh the risks?” With CBD being approved Nationwide, that speaks for itself.
HOWEVER, do not run out and buy any old CBD. You must always buy from a trusted brand, like RVDCBD, Mr. 420, the guy you’ve known and trusted for 30 years.
CBD Blocks the COVID-19 Pandemic
After these test findings current regulation may change as we battle year two of the pandemic. With the current confirmed COVID cases totaling 312,173,462 and rising with Covid Deaths over the last two years reaching 5,501,000 and rising, we need a better solution. With CBD Products like CBD oil, CBD Topicals, and CBD Gummies, and CBD Flowers readily available and legal. Why not try them?

Many products on the market are fads or quick turn-around business schemes. RVDCBD is not one of those fads, here today and gone tomorrow. Rob Van Dam has been a CBD connoisseur for 30 years, and Rob never follows the prescribed path. Production at RVDCBD includes, Rob Van Dam testing everything (and when I say test, he literally puts the test product on his body, smokes it, or ingests it).
Why? CBD is 100% organic, so he knows it’s safe. But RVD settles for nothing but the best, so it his mission to ensure his products are of the highest quality and most effective. Being a 30-year veteran of CBD, the goal is and always will be, if it doesn’t work for RVD, or it doesn’t meet his standards, we’re not selling it.
