After experimenting with cannabis strains over the course of three months, Kovalchuk says that the hope lies in the right balance of CBD and THC in a strain. We all know that CBD is the most famous of the two for its medicinal properties; while THC has its own as well, many in the medical community are still wary of it due to its stigma caused by its ability to get people high. “It will take a long time to find what the active ingredient is – there may be many,” Kovalchuk says. However, he explains that high-CBD strains possess a powerful anti-inflammatory property that may be beneficial specifically for coronavirus. “We focus more on the higher CBD because people can take higher doses and not be impaired,” he said.
