    It’s not the weed version of the missing link, but Canadian Researcher Dr. Igor Kovalchuk has released a scientific study on the interaction of the cannabis sativa plant and Covid-19. His results are based on 3D tissue modeling provided by MIttek inc in Ashland, MA. That company is also right in the middle of the Massachusetts Coronavirus hotspot,. Their offices were visited by Governor Charlie Baker last week and received recognition for their production of hand sanitizer during the pandemic.. Even though his study is not peer reviewed yet, Dr. Kovalchuk’s results may pave the way for more research, at least in Canada where it’s a federally legal substance to study, while the United States has been thwarting research illegally according to international law.
