From the article:
Cannabis compounds prevented the virus that causes Covid-19 from penetrating healthy human cells, according to a laboratory study published in the Journal of Nature Products.
The two compounds commonly found in hemp — called cannabigerolic acid, or CBGA, and cannabidiolic acid, or CBDA — were identified during a chemical screening effort as having potential to combat coronavirus, researchers from Oregon State University said. In the study, they bound to spike proteins found on the virus and blocked a step the pathogen uses to infect people.
Honestly, "cannabis may protect you from covid 19" seems like fake high school science. But it's in Bloomberg! So I buy it. https://t.co/InWuPoth0D

Imagine if this is actually true and we should have been listening to Seth Rogen and not Dr. Fauci all this time?
Count this as a potential twist in the pandemic I didn't see coming. https://t.co/NmwHIG6Rmn

Let’s go, people. Get stoned for two weeks to slow the spread.
