The International Association for Cannabinoid Drugs (AICM) issued a statement in which they denied fake publications made by some media outlets that noted that cannabis could be an alternative against the current COVID-19.
In an official statement, the experts made it clear that there is no evidence that prove these statements.
“Although some studies report that cannabinoids could have an antiviral and antibacterial effect. There is no individual evidence that cannabinoids, such as CBD, CBG or THC, can protect us against infection of SARS-CoV2 virus or can use it against this threat.”.
They also referred to the discussion we talked about at MCN about whether cannabis can help spread the virus.
“In addition, there is no evidence that the use of cannabinoids can increase the risk of infection.”
Experts recommend abiding by the information of the official authorities of each country.
The International Association for Cannabinoid Medicines (IACM) was founded in 2000. It aims to promote knowledge about cannabis, cannabinoids, the endocannabinoid system and other related subjects, especially regarding its therapeutic potential.
