Dominating the Top 5 most-popular CBD news in 2022 was the discovery in January that CBD, in a research study, prevented the COVID-19 virus from infecting people by binding to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and preventing the virus from entering human cells.
“The research team found that a pair of cannabinoid acids bind to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, blocking a critical step in the process the virus uses to infect people,” wrote the CE staff on the released research in January. “The compounds are cannabigerolic acid, or CBGA, and cannabidiolic acid, CBDA, and the spike protein is the same drug target used in COVID-19 vaccines and antibody therapy.”
Subsequent Top 5 most-popular articles throughout the year detailed CBD’s potential for addressing other health care issues, separating CBD facts from myths, examining the ever-increasing patient use of CBD and CBD/THC compounds in states that have legalized THC, CBD extraction methods, and more.
“We believe this research is the tip of the iceberg,” wrote Stirling Professional CBD President Joe Kryszak. “Undoubtedly, future research will continue to show cannabinoid compounds can help resolve many of the issues facing this country’s health care system. This nation has been facing a health crisis for the last couple of decades. With the leadership of the chiropractic community, and the U.S. government in regard to leadership, we might see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

An estimated 33% of the population already uses CBD, with that number expected to double over the next five years. Some research estimates over half of the population will be using CBD to help control health issues within the next 10 years.

Due to the demand for hemp products (which will only increase), the challenge for production staff (especially in maximum-strength products over 5,000 mg and 100-ML bottles) has led to distribution delays, requiring priority shipping for physicians and patients with neurologic dysfunction, which should soon be resolved.
