How the Cannabis plant could fight symptoms of COVID-19


EAST LANSING, Mich. — A Michigan State University professor is currently researching compounds in the Cannabis plant that could possibly help symptoms of COVID 19.

Norbert Kaminski, Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology at MSU has been studying molecules in Cannabis since 1990 to understand how they can apply them for therapeutic use.


Most recently he’s been working with GB Sciences a Biopharmaceutical company to identify specific compounds in the plant that don’t have psychotropic properties for anti inflammatory properties, and this could lead to a drug that could help with inflamed lungs, which many experience after contracting COVID 19.

“In the case of Covid, those individuals that really have serious health problems often have had too strong an immune response, which compromises the function of their lungs. And so the idea here being that using these cannabinoids is to temper how strong that immune responses so you can still get the benefit of fighting, having your immune system fighting the infection. But now do it in such a strong way that it would actually alter your lung function,” says Norbert Kaminski, MSU Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology.

The research is still in the early phases so it may take time before this new drug is released.

Kaminski is hopeful this new drug could be used for cancer treatments as well.
