Hi everyone I’m Christine Sclafani with TNMNEWS. First and foremost I want to say That I hope everybody out there is doing OK and I hope you’re taking and all the necessary precautions to avoid Contracting the coronavirus also known as Covid-19.

I know here in Los Angeles they are taking all the necessary steps to keep everyone informed, and keeping us updated on the latest information available. I’m sure most of you already know that the virus has now affected people in all 50 States. Although there isn’t a vaccine right now for this virus, some people are wondering, what about cannabis? It’s funny because I read recently on social media that smoking pot can kill the coronavirus. I even saw on Facebook and Instagram earlier this month several pages that were sharing a stock image of a marijuana bud along with claims that scientists found that smoking pot can kill the Coronavirus. Well, that is false. There is absolutely no truth to this. NONE. ZERO. ZILTCH! 

There is no scientific evidence that cannabis kills the coronavirus. Cannabis does have antibacterial properties and some of its cannabinoids can help with the treatment of multiple illnesses, but that does not mean it can also be a treatment for the coronavirus. It can definitely make you feel better though if you smoke it or ingest it, but it won’t cure it. Eating an edible before bed can help you sleep, I usually end up taking 2:1 CBD/THC tincture before bed and I sleep like a baby.

The reality is it may take months for a  vaccine to be developed, and home remedies are also probably not going to help. Whether you already have the virus or not, smoking pot will not help you, so please don’t do it thinking it can kill the virus or prevent the virus. The only measures that you can take are preventative ones like; Social distancing, avoiding crowds or staying at home, Washing your hands regularly, not touching your mouth or your face, or anyone else’s mouth or face, make sure you wash your fruits, vegetables, don’t share your pipes or bowls

Also make sure your pipes and bowls are clean. It may be a good time to get a new pipe or a new bong.

In fact all over our website you can get a free pipe! Just click on the pipe of your choice so you have one for you and maybe have one for your friends. But remember, No sharing! This is the new normal for now people. But it’s not all bad.

Here is some good news….

-China has closed down its last coronavirus hospital because there’s not enough new cases to support them.

– A 103-year-old Chinese grandmother has made a full recovery from COVID-19 after being treated for 6 days in Wuhan, China.

– Apple reopens all 42 stores in China.

– I’m South Korea, The number of new cases are declining.

– Out of over 200,000 contracted Coronavirus cases, 82,000 people have recovered SO FAR! So it’s not ALL bad news.
