Cytokine storm syndrome is a form of inflammatory response where white blood cells are activated and release inflammatory cytokines, which the activate more white blood cells. The syndrome can cause symptoms like fever, fatigue, and vomiting, but can advance to a point where a patient might need a ventilator to stay alive or might die.
A study was carried out by Eybna and Cannasoul in Israel indicated that that the terpene formulation combined with CBD (NT-VRL) is twice as effective at using CBD on its own as well as twice as effective as Dexamethasone, a common corticosteroids treatment for inflammation. NT-VRL is a patented formulation of terpenes created by Eybna. The formulation is designed specifically to be used via inhalation rather than in a tablet or edible form. The terpenes used in the formulation were selected specifically for their ant-viral and anti-inflammatory properties.
