New Research Suggests Terpenes And CBD Work 2X’s Better For Covid-19 Inflammation Than Corticosteroid
Cytokine storms are the most deadly symptom of the Covid-19 virus, leading to excessive inflammation, swelling, pain, and loss of organ function. An Israeli research and development company (Eybna) created a proprietary terpene formulation (NT-VRL) to treat inflammatory conditions such as the cytokine storm syndrome. The NT-VRL formulation was tested alongside CBD, CBD + NT-VRL, and Dexamethasone (a corticosteroid used to treat Covid-19 patients) to see how each compound impacted cytokine activity. According to the study, “Not only was the terpene formulation able to inhibit the cytokine activity…but it also outperformed both CBD and dexamethasone”.Terpenes are important! We’ve spoken often on the importance of terpenes, which is why we include concentrated terpene profiles in each and every product. Not only do terpenes enhance the benefits of CBD, but they also have their own anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-anxiety, and antioxidant properties (as shown in this particular study).
