The scientists are already looking for the drugs that can reduce the activity of cytokine in a human body but some of the drugs like Tocilizumab which were earlier tested were found failed due to its drastic side-effects like inflammation in the pancreas that is way too hazardous.
In comparison to that, the Cannabis was found way more positive in treating the inflammation with no side effects.
