  2. shawnn Dixon on May 15, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    were used to coughing its all good

  3. Syzygy on May 15, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    Nope I don’t smoke, and still haven’t gotten a vax and supposedly haven’t gotten sick from Covid. Not going to start smoking either, kills my motivation and makes me feel even more depressed. I think I’ll just stick to my ashwauganda for anxiety and not throw money at government propaganda.

  4. Jorge Perez on May 15, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Idk cause im a regular user and i got it a few months ago, did go a while before getting it so idk, to each their own

  5. straightpipetheworld on May 15, 2022 at 7:00 pm

  6. G Alpha Davenport on May 15, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Wow !! ,So if I’m cannabis infused.. 🤔 Hmmm ,That’s why I never get Sick !🏝️

    The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)
    And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: (Acts 17:30)
    Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 20:21)

    Mind you the US government keeps cannabis at a schedule 1 status because they state it is of no medical value. This is the same government who also offered it as a treatment for glaucoma for years.

  9. snapfinger1 on May 15, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Now I know why I never caught it, completely unvaccinated.

  10. crkr on May 15, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Yeah I still haven’t gotten Covid once yet… Stay high! stay healthy!

  11. Adam on May 15, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    IT is when u eat it, not if u Smok/Vape it

  12. Sans Mal on May 15, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Not wearing mask getting tested or getting poison injected in me but I’ll smoke a spliff

  13. Jeremiah Footlong on May 15, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Man’s r wierd asf. The fuck is a cannabis consumer…u mean a stoner?🙄

  14. KK on May 15, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    The reporting on this study is unsurprisingly awful. What the study actually showed was the the cannabinoid acids CBDa and CGDa inhibit covid from entering the cell. This is the raw cannabinoids. When you heat them they become CBD and CGD, so you actually need a cold extracted form. You can find some companies making these but to think that just taking a standard edible or smoking weed will have the anti-viral effect, it wont.

  15. Charles Webber on May 15, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    S*** I thought it was the heroin not giving me coronavirus

  16. Christina Taylor on May 15, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Covid has come through my house twice now and I a regular smoker have not yet tested positive!

  17. Richard Shane on May 15, 2022 at 7:10 pm


    It kinda makes logical sense regarding hemp products especially if it contains oils…. Free compound oils that may interfere with the spike protein mechanism for attachment….I would give it a try…… anyone???

  18. Lewi Greener on May 15, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    This is cap 🧢 I smoke weed daily I am sat on the shitter as I speak smoking a joint I am possitive with covid and it feels like I have been hit by a bus but yes the weed helps with the body akes

  19. WAKEUPALREADYNYC on May 15, 2022 at 7:15 pm


  20. Craig Bridle on May 15, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Smoked everyday never had covid

  21. L R on May 15, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    I don’t want to give medical advice that can mislead anyone but while I have covid I found smoking weed would “clear my lungs” via heavy coughing

  22. SlowMoPanda on May 15, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    I am a chronically & terminally ill millennial who has a bad immune system to begin with & can’t get vaxxed (though I will for sure try to once they get it down to 1 shot!) I’ve had several family & friends get C0V1D & a few almost died, but I’ve somehow never gotten it! And CBD isn’t even a huge part of my MMJ use…

  23. Berton Wolfenbarger on May 15, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Excuse me while I smoke some killer Alaskan weed that smells like straight orange peels cultivate by tanana herb co Fairbanks Alaska

  24. Michele on May 15, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Not true I smoke daily and I still got Omicron just last week.

  25. John Walker on May 15, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    I got the first variant. Came out ok. I smoke weed & have not got covid-19 again. Mind you I didn’t wear a mask & have been around a lot of people. So, yes it works. 👍😁

  26. Noumenon4Idolatry on May 15, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    “We haven’t really researched it yet but it probably doesn’t work at all since we can’t make allot of money out of it yet. I do what I’m told because I’m a doctor.”

  27. Kevin on May 15, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    No it don’t. I consume large amounts of cannabis and high doses of edibles every day. I’m a grower and love cannabis but it don’t prevent covid trust me. It may make the symptoms better or keep you from getting real sick however.

  28. Eric KB on May 15, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    I’ve been a Pot Smoker way b4 the Pandemic and Smoke all the way thru the Pandemic and haven’t contracted COVID, but I got both Vaccine shots and Booster, and still haven’t turned Zombie, kinda disappointed…

  29. SlowMoPanda on May 15, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    As long as we use a full, natural, un-fu€ked-up by humans PLANT to treat our terminal illnesses, I do NOT agree with calling it a ‘drug’, because drugs are the stupid, pitiful, synthetic & extracted crap they put into pills!

  30. White Rabbit Talks on May 15, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Dude the reporters don’t even want to repeat the b******* that they’re made to say!

  31. Vanity_YT on May 15, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    The study says CBDA and CBGA which are the acid forms of the cannabis compounds, not CBD and CBG which are found in edibles. Edibles are already decarbed.

  32. Justin’s World on May 15, 2022 at 7:28 pm


  33. Brett L on May 15, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    Good to know I’ll NEVER get Covid LMAO

  34. SEAsUAS on May 15, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    Why didn’t you go to Oregon State U to interview instead of a cannabis shop? I would like to hear it from the source instead of your spin on it.

  35. SeanTheOriginal on May 15, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    I feel like it also works for CBD that’s smoked, too. I don’t do CBD gummies, I only smoke, and yet I haven’t gotten Covid when people I live with have gotten it twice already. I don’t do masks or use hand sanitizer at home so you’d THINK I’d of gotten it by now, especially since I’m in such close proximity to people who have had it.
    But I smoke an ungodly amount of weed, I’m unvaccinated, and I still haven’t gotten Covid.

    I hope this is accurate science. I WANT this to be true so bad.

  36. SlowMoPanda on May 15, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    I love how they always say "There are NO HUMAN STUDIES", but not WHY! There won’t be any human studies until the f-ing govt gets their head out their own a$$ & stops blocking any & all attempts to make cannabis studies legal!! 🤔

  37. Larry Tate on May 15, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Everybody in my family smokes and not one of us got a shot or has caught covid-19 or that matter any flu or anything else I’ve got 14 in this family completely healthy but we all smoke weed 🤣

  38. JM on May 15, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Funny how its okay to promote this study, but not other drug candidates that are studied more extensively.

  39. Unclogged toilet on May 15, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    On a t break and now I got a cold, I hope.

  40. Christine Jersey on May 15, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    People are desperate to try anything to stop the side effects of the pokes

  41. Cosmic Elements on May 15, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    I have not sifted through all 4800 comments.. But I don’t see anyone else mentioning that they got the information 100% WRONG. It was CBGa and CBDa.
    Completely different compounds which are Not the same as buy cbd and cbg edibles. It’s the ACIDIC form of those two compounds. Barely on the market yet. Although I have my tincture ready. But we need more education with the public on this stuff.. and clearly mainstream media.

  42. Chocolate Sage on May 15, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    This is better than the non effective clot shot

  43. Larry Silverstein’s insurance policy on May 15, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    The doctor is just salty bc it cuts into his big pharmacy kickbacks. The medical industry is just as bad as our political parties.

  44. Teresa H. on May 15, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    They said edible not smoking it people…listen.

  45. Stephanie on May 15, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    They make more money injecting us with pharmaceutical of course they’re not gonna truly advocate us taking Edibles (NATURAL GROWN PLANTS…)

  46. LeckiPeng on May 15, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    I don’t know anyone who smokes weed regularly and is positive for corona!

  47. LL Hannah on May 15, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    I think the FDA will do their best to get this off the market. Because it works.

  48. Stephanie on May 15, 2022 at 7:53 pm


  49. WorldBay on May 15, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Oh and remember, MRNA is not recommended for human trials, at this point 🤦🏽‍♂️

  50. franklyocean on May 15, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    We need that Pandemic Special
