The Truth About CBD and Covid-19 (No Hype)

We hope all of our friends, family, and customers are staying safe during these difficult times. Pure Source continues to provide CBD shipping during the pandemic. We have heard some companies making some outrageous claims about using CBD for Covid-19 and we want to be clear to everyone regarding these claims.
First of all, no, CBD is not a cure for the coronavirus and no one should be making such a claim.  According to the CDC “no drugs or other therapeutics approved by the US Food and Drug Administration to prevent or treat COVID-19”.  There are some therapies and promising off-label uses being studied for their effects as therapies, but CBD is not one of these.
Second, some companies are selling CBD in hand sanitizer.  While there is nothing to our knowledge harmful about this, we don’t believe this amounts to more than a ploy to sell hand sanitizer. Again, no harm, in fact, we will talk about it later, but CBD is great for your skin in general, but there is no evidence to suggest adding it to hand sanitizer has any benefit when combating Covid-19.
All that being said, it is still a very good time to use CBD. How so?


Getting enough, and quality sleep is so important to your health for so many reasons. One of the biggest is supporting a healthy immune system. This is where CBD can help you have peace of mind during this pandemic. You want to do everything you can to keep your immune system operating optimally.  According to the Mayo Clinic, “During sleep, your immune system releases proteins called cytokines, some of which help promote sleep. ... Sleep deprivation may decrease the production of these protective cytokines. In addition, infection-fighting antibodies and cells are reduced during periods when you don't get enough sleep.” This is our first practical reason for continuing or starting to use CBD during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Just as lack of sleep can be detrimental to your immune system, so is stress! And lack of sleep and stress often go hand in hand. If you have taken CBD before, you may have been taking it for this very reason as its one of the most common uses.
The main types of immune cells are white blood cells. When we're stressed, the immune system's ability to fight off antigens is reduced. That is why we are more susceptible to infections. The stress hormone corticosteroid can suppress the effectiveness of the immune system (e.g. lowers the number of lymphocytes).
Keeping your immune system at its best for Covid-19 or any infectious virus should include doing everything you can to keep your stress at bay. Whether it’s being quarantined for long periods of time, experiencing economic distress, or just hearing too much bad news, it's an easy time to be stressed. Do everything you can to beat stress and stay healthy!

Stay Active

Eating right and staying physically active are also so critical do doing everything you can to stay healthy both physically and mentally during this craziness. Being sufficiently active works with adequate sleep and keeping stress down.

Exercise releases chemicals like endorphins and serotonin that improve your mood. If you exercise regularly, it can reduce your stress and symptoms of mental health conditions like depression and anxiety, and help with recovery from mental health issues.
Exercise is also an immune booster. Physical activity may help flush bacteria out of the lungs and airways. This may reduce your chance of getting a cold, flu, or other illness. Exercise causes a change in antibodies and white blood cells (WBC). WBCs are the body's immune system cells that fight disease.

Skin Care

Skin Care, while we are not putting CBD in hand sanitizer, we don’t want to forget your skin. CBD is a great natural ingredient for healthy skin. Skin is a barrier that serves as one of the body's first lines of defense against harmful microbes. Specialized immune cells within skin tissue help to fight invading organisms. Past work by an NIH research team showed that commensals can help the body's immune cells fight disease-causing microbes.
Unfortunately, CBD is not a miracle drug for Covid-19 as some may be claiming on the Internet, but it does have very practical uses as part of maintaining your mental and physical health during this troubling time. Hopefully we all get back to our normal stresses in life soon and not the stresses of a global pandemic. Stay healthy everyone!
