I read that two of the compounds found in hemp -cannabigerolic acid, or CBGA, and cannabidiolic acid, or CBDA – were identified during a chemical screening effort as having potential to combat coronavirus, according to researchers from the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University.
The next stage is to start human trials of the compounds as preventatives.
CBGA and CBDA are acid forms, and destroyed by heating. CBD products that are made by heating would destroy the acid forms. So it is not clear (because it has not been interesting until now) whether current CBD products contain the acid forms.
