Combining Cannabis With Echinacea purpurea

It may be helpful to consider Cannabis extracts as an addition to other infection treatment protocols for the present health care crisis. There are references to support the belief of a synergistic affect with Echinacea purpurea which can modulate the endocannabinoid system by targeting CB2 receptors. Certain Echinacea preparations have anxiolytic action. Anxiety can negatively affect treatment outcomes. The anti-inflammatory affects of Echinacea are the result of stimulating the production of the anti- inflammatory cytokine IL-10 and the inhibition of the pro-inflammatory TNF-alpha protein. The antimicrobial action of E. purpurea is well established.
