Ever since the Covid-19 pandemic started, people have had to get used to a new and slightly restrictive way of living. As everyone got afraid of the potential problems that could happen in the future, the whole world had to get up and fight this virus by isolating, keeping a high level of hygiene, and changing many habits.
Although it seems like the super restrictive Covid era has reached its end, the virus is still out there. Furthermore, over million people worldwide get infected by the latest well-known variant of SARS-CoV-2 called Omicron, and it looks like the virus is here to stay for a while longer.
Since the very beginning of the pandemic, most people have tried to find ways to protect themselves from being infected, but the best you can do if you catch it is to relieve the symptoms.
Many of those people have tried different methods, and a particular question came to mind: Can cannabis, specifically Delta 10, help relieve your Omicron symptoms?
Delta 10 is a type of cannabinoid found in cannabis in hemp. It’s a synthetic isomer that you can find in trace amounts, and it’s hard to extract. It directly affects the endocannabinoid system, and it works like other cannabis compounds on an individual’s body.
Although Delta 10 has lower psychotropic potency, it can have both body and mind-altering effects. This particular type of cannabinoid can get you ‘’high’’, and many consumers stated that it has a Sativa flow. You can easily purchase it both locally and online on legal grounds.
Because of its mild effect, medical workers have examined Delta 10 and its possible positive effects on an individual’s health. As there are still many questions regarding cannabis and its health benefits that need answers, it’s clear that there isn’t much we know about this type of cannabinoid.
How Does Omicron Work?
Omicron is one of the variants of SARS-CoV-2 that caused Covid-19. It’s one of the most easily transmitted variants, and there is still ongoing research regarding its effects and protection from it. However, Omicron has milder effects than previous variants of the Coronavirus.
The most frequent symptoms Omicron can bring you are: a runny nose, sore throat, sneezing, fatigue, and headache. Although you can easily transmit it, its contagiousness lasts for 5 – 7 days, and it has milder effects than the previous variants.
Because it’s so easy to get infected with the Omicron variant, you should know more about all the different things related to treatment and recovery. However, we first have to look at how to avoid it altogether. To protect yourself from getting Omicron, you should:
- Get vaccinated;
- Wash your hands;
- Wear a mask;
- Avoid crowded places and events;
If you experience any of these symptoms or were in contact with someone infected with Omicron, you should seek medical help.
There are different types of research done on behalf of cannabis and its potential positive effect on Covid-19. It’s no wonder why researchers work hard on finding an alternative method for treating Omicron. Many cannabis compounds have shown their effectiveness in treating different types of illnesses.
One of the research suggests that high doses of CBDA and CBG blocks cellular entry of SARS-CoV-2 into cells. Although CBD may potentially help an infected individual, THC can have a negative effect (especially when combined with CBD). As all of the research is considered a clinical trial, it still can’t rely on using it on patients.
On the other hand, there isn’t much information regarding the effect that Delta-10 could have on an individual infected with Omicron. Although it may positively affect your muscles and relax your mind, there is no proof that it can legitimately relieve your symptoms.
Because researchers don’t have enough information, Delta-10 stays considered as a recreational and a medical compound.
The past few years represented a challenge for humanity. Inevitably, Covid-19 has shown its brutal face and infected and, sadly, killed around 6 million people. The pandemic created an unbelievable problem, and people have experienced different types of consequences along the way.
Researchers have done a great job inventing a vaccine for the virus. That didn’t stop them from exploring other methods for treating Covid-19. There is still ongoing research regarding cannabis and its possible effects on an infected individual.
Sadly, there isn’t much information regarding Delta-10, and it’s pretty clear that scientists still have a lot of work to do. In the meantime, the only thing we can realistically do is stay safe, wear masks, get vaccinated, and take care of our loved ones.
