One of the ways CBD appears to reduce the "cytokine storm" that damages the lungs and causes death in many COVID-19 patients is by increasing levels of a natural peptide called apelin, which reduces inflammation and drops dramatically by background of the virus. Researchers at the Georgia College of Medicine this summer reported CBD's ability to increase oxygen levels and reduce inflammation and physical damage to the lungs as a result of respiratory distress syndrome, or ARDS. They have now shown that apelin levels are declining due to a viral infection that has already claimed the lives of 1 million people worldwide, and that CBD is rapidly helping to normalize this level along with lung function.

“It was very effective in both directions,” noted Dr. Babak Baban, (DCG Immunologist and Associate Dean for Research), commenting on the shift in apelin levels in both circulating blood and lung tissue. "CBD almost brought it back to normal." Blood peptide levels dropped to almost zero in their ARDS model and increased 20-fold after taking CBD, they report in the Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine. Apelin is a pervasive peptide produced by the cells of the heart, lungs, brain, adipose tissue, and blood, and is an important regulator in both blood pressure and inflammation. For example, when our blood pressure rises, the level of apelin has to rise in the right place, such as in the endothelial cells lining the blood vessels, to lower it.

Apelin should do the same to help normalize the significant increase in lung inflammation and associated breathing difficulties associated with ARDS. “Ideally, with ARDS, it would increase in areas of the lungs where it is needed to improve blood flow and oxygen flow for compensation and protection,” says Dr. Babak Baban But in the COVID-related ARDS model, apelin did not work, but instead decreased, both in the lung tissue itself and in the general circulation, until they gave CBD (cannabidiol).

On October 15, 2020, in the Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, they reported that CBD treatment reduces excessive lung inflammation, improving lung function, increasing oxygen levels, and repairing some of the structural lung damage that is classic in ARDS. The virus enters human cells through the angiotensin-converting enzyme receptor 2 or ACE2. Apelin and ACE2 also usually work together to control blood pressure, and their activation may be beneficial for cardiovascular diseases, including heart failure, by lowering blood pressure while increasing the heart's ability to pump blood. In fact, apelin and ACE2 work together to regulate a healthy cardiovascular system, and they are factors in almost any condition, such as obesity or hypertension, that damage the cardiovascular system.
