Brazilian scientists test CBD against COVID-19 long-haul symptoms

Scientists in Brazil are in the third phase of research testing CBD for the treatment of Long Covid, the persistence of COVID-19 symptoms for more than 60 days.

The effects of Long Covid, capable of recurring for months after infection, can include fatigue, headaches, muscle weakness and insomnia.

Because consumers have been using CBD over the counter for relief from a number of issues, the researchers decided to test it against the coronavirus, according to The Rio Times.

The third phase of the trial will recruit 1,000 volunteers.
