A new study has revealed early evidence that CBD may help to reduce cytokine storms and excessive lung inflammation in patients with COVID-19.
Carried out by researchers at the Dental College of Georgia and Medical College of Georgia, the study shows that CBD could help patients with COVID-19 who show signs of respiratory distress to avoid extreme interventions like mechanical ventilation as well as death from acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
The researchers say that clinical trials to determine optimal dosage and timing is needed before CBD becomes part of the treatment for COVID-19.
The Western Cape High Court has ruled that the regulation used to implement a tobacco ban during lockdown was unconstitutional.
The judgment finds that the regulation was not necessary.
The ruling found that Minister Dlamini-Zuma and the Coronavirus Command Council '“have not shown that regulation 45 reduced or acted to reduce the strain on the health care system” and therefore should not have formed part of the National Disaster Management Act regulations.
Legal experts responding to the judgment argue it will be very hard for government to implement such a ban again.
