15 Sep 2021  |  Cannabis Health News
A study from Poland has found that cannabis extract may have an immunostimulating effect on honey bees, potentially helping them stay healthy and resist pesticides. Honeybee populations have been declining in the UK due to various factors, including climate change and pesticide use. The study, conducted by researchers at Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, divided bees into groups and administered hemp extract in different forms. Results indicated that hemp extract increased protein concentrations and potentially improved the bees' immune systems without adversely affecting their metabolism. A previous study by the same university suggested that hemp could also help bees survive pesticide poisoning. Further research is planned to explore the protective effects of hemp on wild bees, which could be significant for bee conservation efforts.
