There has been a global change that has disrupted industries and economies around the world. It’s called the Coronavirus, also known as Covid-19, or SARS-CoV-2 . A respiratory virus that is wreaking havoc on a certain at risk group of us humans, typically those with pre-existing conditions and older in age.
CBD manufacturers know only a few key components as fact, with the research we are perpetually conducting through our partnered research institutions. In fact there is so much more we don’t know than what we do know, but it is an ever chasing stream of research and knowledge that we are uncovering about the benefits of CBD.
One thing we can contribute to cannabidiol within research studies, is that CBD has been known to boost your body’s T cells and in turn, decrease inflammation*. Manipulation of endocannabinoids and/or use of exogenous cannabinoids in vivo can constitute a potent treatment modality against inflammatory disorders*. In layman’s terms, it’s great at fighting general inflammation. This focus on the potential use of cannabinoids as a new class of anti-inflammatory agents with a number of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, is the main focus of our current work. *source
Why is this important? Because interestingly, the acute phase of SARS in humans is associated with a severe reduction in the number of T cells in the blood. Surprisingly, only a limited number of studies have explored the role of the T cell-mediated adaptive immune response in respiratory coronavirus pathogens. This means that the reduction of T cells lowers a patient’s immune system to fight the infection and other like symptoms associated with the disease**. In theory, CBD could eventually play a role in defending against Coronavirus. This is, however, hypothetical at the moment until more research is uncovered. **source
In no way are we stating that you should go out and stock up on all of the CBD you can. I will be the first to tell you that it is NOT a cure, it is NOT a treatment, but it MAY play a part in strengthening your immune system while it's in a vulnerable state, when coupled with the right group of suppliments. The key roles of vitamin and supplement intake can have a drastic effect on a persons susceptibility to be affected by infections like this one. We will always recommend, adding a well rounded vitamin and supplement regimen to your daily intake.
We’ve done some research and here’s what we are seeing that will help boost a person’s immune system and allow CBD to aid in the decrease of inflammation. The use of EpiCor, a consumable yeast-based immunogen has, shown drastic results in the decrease of inflammation in the human body. The selection of anti-inflammatory and lymphocyte activation assays were based on initial evidence for immunomodulating effects of EpiCor from an unusually low incidence of influenza among employees in a factory manufacturing EpiCor, along with a high oxygen radical absorbance capacity value. In the present study, EpiCor significantly reduced the production of reactive oxygen species by neutrophils (p<0.005)***. ***source
We are currently developing a product that blends CBD and EpiCor, to create a nano gelcap to aide in this global fight for relief. People are investing in themselves, as they find ways to boost immunity against the new strain of virus. While this product is not yet available, we are planning on releasing it as quickly as possible. Immunity boosters are going to play a big part in the future of medicine and preventative measures against new viruses such as Covid-19.
Another rising concern for individuals is the increased stress and anxiety associated with the shift in economic health. People are more often turning to CBD because they are under increased pressures with work, and the change of daily life. CBD has been known to decrease anxiety, and we are receiving more requests on what products we could recommend. While we can’t guarantee that CBD will have an effect on most people, we are suggesting a test of our 1000mg PCR Pharms Tincture. The fear of the unknown is inhibiting peoples ability to live stress free everyday and if we can offer any help, we will.
Here are some tips we have picked up throughout this crazy changing time-
Tip 1-Stay Healthy. People are home and anxious. By working in time to stay active, you can drastically boost your endorphins and limit the stresses of life. Set as daily goal to walk one mile, do 50 push ups, challenge our family members to do crunches, or even curl that wine glass 10 times before each sip. Purchase immunity boosters, vitamins, and supplement to have a back stock in place. Your health is the most important. Don’t forget about you.
Tip 2-Create a Routine. Many people become complacent with having to stay at home. By forcing yourself to get up in the morning, make your bed, prepare breakfast, you are ultimately creating positive habits which you can take with you when quarantine is over. Take this time to go in the yard and get some sun, catch up on those chores you’ve been putting off, or even pick up a new hobby.
Tip 3-Be Careful. There are many fears about our current situation. Are we doing too much? Are we doing too little? Learn about the current knowings of the CDC by staying commented to their website. When you’re traveling to the grocery store, be sure to take advice from professions. We are including a link by a doctor on how to take precautions at the grocery store.

Tip 4-Be Educated. Listen to the professionals and understand what the virus is, and how you can protect yourself and your loved ones. Remember, it’s only risky for a small percent of individuals. Be cautious of them. They are of course, who we are ultimately doing this for. Check out this video on what Coronavirus is, and how it's broken down so you can understand it the best way possible.

Tip 5-Take Time for Yourself. Don’t focus on todays situation. Don’t always have the TV on in the background. You need time to reset, detox, and find yourself. Overall, take care of yourself. Tune out the media and put your mental health first. Look out for you and your loved ones. We’re all doing our part, but sometimes we forget to think about ourselves in the process.
