Could the Answer to Covid-19 be found in Southern Spain?
January 25, 2022

As we wrote about in our last blog post, it had been found that CBDA and CBGA bind themselves to the spike proteins in the virus. New research based on a study on human participants has shown that users of CBD were less likely to contract the SARS-CoV-2 virus than those who do not use CBD regardless of the variant. This is a groundbreaking discovery which can revolutionize the industry in a big way. Experts are now saying that CBD should be used in conjunction with the existing covid-19 protocols, like masks and vaccinations which have been successful in preventing hospitalisations in Europe so far. But what role can Southern Spain play in this new fight against Covid-19?

First of all it is important to look at the increase in the amount of high-CBD low-THC hemp that has been grown in Southern Spain over the last five years. Numbers from the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture suggest that Hemp production has increased eightfold over the quinquennium, this makes the region one of the most productive in all of Europe. This means that many companies that produce CBD products will be looking to the South of Spain to source material for their products.

The other reason is the Southern Spanish climate is ideal for producing high quality hemp biomass and flower. The warm Summer is ideal for promoting growth during the vegetative phase giving a good base for the autumn months when the plants go into the flowering phase and here as well the climate is ideal with the colder temperatures in the evening increasing the amount of resin the flowers produce.

Between having the ideal climate and being a heavyweight when it comes to European hemp production the South of Spain could be an important battleground in the fight against Covid-19 in Europe as well as a great place for people who want to get into growing hemp on a large scale.

Our most important takeaway from Canapa Mundi was that everyone seems to be on the same page as us that the way forward for the hemp sector is to move away from the gray legal framework that the industry has been based on to go towards a much clearer and well defined industry where everyone from farmer to Government agency is in complete understanding of what is and is not legal as it relates to CBD.

Is CBD the answer to the Covid-19 Pandemic?

Richard Van Breemen Ph.D and his team of researchers recently published their findings in The Journal of Natural Products. The study found that a number of Hemp derived compounds such as CBGA and CBDA can bind themselves to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, which blocks a critical step in the infection process in humans. This is the same process pharmaceutical companies use in the development of Covid-19 vaccines.
