JAMAICAN SCIENTISTS CLOSE IN ON AFFORDABLE CBD-BASED HEPATITIS TREATMENT
As we celebrate Black History Month, the contributions of black scientists, both men and women, often go unacknowledged in a world where the importance of science is being overlooked, even denied, by our own leaders.
Having said that, the beat goes on.
A group of scientists, led by noted Jamaican cancer researcher Dr. Henry Lowe, have discovered a breakthrough in the treatment of hepatitis C—using cannabidiol (CBD).
Dr. Lowe’s team from the University of the West Indies at Mona, Jamaica (UWI) announced that CBD is very destructive to the hepatitis C virus (HCV), which is responsible for cirrhosis of the liver and also causes liver cancer.
