New Study: CBD Compound Could Be A Weapon Against Deadly Superbugs

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

With superbug infections on the rise and no way to treat them, a compound in CBD (cannabidiol) oil is showing promise.  The compound could be a new weapon against superbugs: those deadly infectious organisms which have evolved and no longer can be killed by antibiotics.

CBD is the popular cannabis compound that doesn’t get you high.  It’s everywhere and can be seemingly be used for everything. From sleep disorders to stress relief, CBD is now becoming a popular and natural way to combat ailments. So it makes sense scientists would look to it for a new antibiotic that can potentially work against superbugs; some of which are even resistant to alcohol.

Superbugs Are Becoming RESISTANT To Alcohol Disinfectants

According to Futurism, scientists have already discovered that CBD is effective at killing a wide range of infectious superbugs. During Sunday’s annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology, Mark Blaskovich, a senior research chemist from the University of Queensland, presented his finding that CBD isremarkably effective” at killing a range of bacteria, including several antibiotic-resistant strains — meaning we may have a new weapon in the war against superbugs.

Through his study – which was funded in part by drug-discovery company Botanix Pharmaceuticals – Blaskovich found that a synthetic form of CBD was able to kill several types of Gram-positive bacteria in the lab, including ones that can lead to MRSA and pneumonia. It was also effective at treating a skin infection in mice. –Futurism

However, CBD was not as effective against Gram-negative bacteria, which are generally more resistant to antibiotics. But this study is still promising even though it’s very much in the early stages. Blaskovich’s work has yet to be peer-reviewed or published in a scientific journal, and even he isn’t quite sure what it is that’s allowing the CBD to kill the bacteria.

“It [this study] needs a lot more work to show [that CBD] would be useful to treat infections in humans,” he told Live Science. “It would be very dangerous to try to treat a serious infection with cannabidiol instead of one of the tried and tested antibiotics.”

But with superbugs becoming more and more deadly as they resist antibiotics, any forward step towards treatment is a good thing!

Is CBD Oil a Good Choice for Your Bug-Out-Bag?

*EDITOR’S NOTE: Just remember, hemp oil, and CBD oil are not the same thing.  Both can be useful in holistic wellness; however, CBD has been shown to be more effective as it has the cannabinoids in it. Hemp seed oil comes from the seeds of the hemp plant, and there is no THC whatsoever in it.
