“They are not controlled substances like THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, and have a good safety profile in humans,” he added
. “And our research showed the hemp compounds were equally effective against variants of SARS-CoV-2, including variant B.1.1.7, which was first detected in the United Kingdom, and variant B.1.351, first detected in South Africa.”
