A new laboratory study says cannabis compounds show the ability to prevent the virus that causes COVID-19 from entering human cells.

Researchers from the Oregon State University in the US said they found that a pair of cannabinoid acids – called cannabigerolic acid or CBGA and cannabidiolic acid or CBDA – can bind to the spike proteins on the SARS-CoV-2, blocking a critical step in the process the virus uses to infect people.

The study was published in the Journal of Natural Products.
