Cannabis extracts may reduce the risk of dying from Covid-19
It is shocking just how dangerous the cytokine storm happens to be. I do suspect that when i had double pneumonia around 1960, i had also a close encounter as xrays did show damage. They obviously were not kidding when it was said that i had a close call.
I do suspect that the trigger in all this is likely coming by way of the vaccine protocol. There are pro[osed pathways, but it may well be unidentified. This. is a low level phemon normally handled. That leaves us scant meta stats.
The whole vaccination protocol is now been significantly rejected by the medical community who are responding with their feet.
Just how many sudden deaths can you take?.
Cannabis extracts may reduce the risk of dying from Covid-19 by stopping the immune system attacking itself
Canadian researchers tested seven cannabis extracts on cytokine levels
Cytokines are produced naturally by the immune system in response to infection
But in Covid-19 patients their immune system makes too many cytokines
This so-called 'cytokine storm' can be fatal and is what is inhibited by three of the tested cannabis extracts

Some cannabis extracts may lower the risk of dying from Covid-19 by preventing a patient's malfunctioning immune system from attacking itself, research suggests.
A 'cytokine storm' is a process whereby the immune system goes haywire and attacks healthy tissue instead of just the virus.
In many severe Covid cases, this is what proves fatal, and finding a way to dampen this process has been a priority for doctors.
Now researchers at the University of Lethbridge have investigated how extracts from Cannabis sativa plants interact with cytokines.
They found three strains which are highly effective at reducing levels of two of the chemicals which play integral roles in the cytokine storm.

The researchers have more than 200 variants of cannabis in their collection, and narrowed this down to seven for their study, which has not yet been peer reviewed and is published as a pre-print on Research Square.
'In this study, we identified three extracts that are very, very good strains; some strains identified in previous studies were also pretty good,' says Dr Olga Kovalchuk, co-author of the study.
The strains are known only as numbers four, eight and 14.
Stopping the cytokine storm has been a priority for researchers since it was first identified in the pandemic's early days.
It persists even when the virus has been eradicated from the body and leads to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) which can be a fatal affliction.
This can also cause lung fibrosis, which is when lung tissue becomes damaged and scarred and therefore unable to function properly.
