Cannabis is Not a Suitable Human Coronavirus Treatment, Marc Moulin, Rxleaf.com, 2020

Cannabis is Not a Suitable Human Coronavirus Treatment Marc Moulin March 20, 2020 https://www.rxleaf.com/cannabis-not-good-human-coronavirus-treatment/ Using cannabis as a human coronavirus treatment may make symptoms worse.  Cannabis is great for a lot of things. For example, many physical conditions see symptom abatement with cannabinoid treatment. Additionally, there is adequate, and in some cases, strong, scientific evidence to support consuming cannabis for therapeutic relief. Unfortunately, fighting off influenza-like viruses is not one of them. It’s important to note that there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that cannabis is an effective human coronavirus treatment. On the contrary, researchers from Michigan State University provide recent evidence to demonstrate potentially harmful [...]

Addiction au cannabis, confinement et détention Jean Michel Delile, David Saint Vincent, Laurent Michel, Patrick Veteau Fédération Addiction, mars 2020 Cannabis et dépendance Longtemps, beaucoup ont pensé que le cannabis n’était pas une drogue (dangereuse), ou alors seulement une drogue « douce », au sens où il n’entrainait pas de syndrome physique de manque, à la différence de l’alcool, des opiacés ou des benzodiazépines… Il a fallu beaucoup de temps aux usagers et aux médecins pour réaliser que l’évidence de la souffrance des patients démontrait que la clef de l’addiction en tant que trouble était plus dans le désir/besoin irrépressible de consommer que dans [...]

Immune Responses Regulated by Cannabidiol, James M. Nichols and Barbara L.F. Kaplan, 2019

Immune Responses Regulated by Cannabidiol James M. Nichols and Barbara L.F. Kaplan Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, 2019, Volume X, Number X Doi : 10.1089/can.2018.0073   Abstract Introduction : Cannabidiol (CBD) as Epidiolex (GW Pharmaceuticals) was recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat rare forms of epilepsy in patients 2 years of age and older.

Once such example is the ability of CBD to be anti-inflammatory and [...]

Cannabis and Coronavirus : What Cannabis Patients Want to Know, Rxleaf.com, February 17, 2020

Cannabis and Coronavirus : What Cannabis Patients Want to Know Jennifer Grant https://www.rxleaf.com/cannabis-and-coronavirus-what-cannabis-patients-want-to-know/ February 17, 2020 There is evidence that cannabis can reduce viral load in HIV, can it help COVID-19 patients?

Patients have asked us: What about cannabis? There have been rumors about successful treatments for coronavirus, [...]

IACM: Déclaration du Conseil sur la pandémie actuelle du corona virus et l’utilisation des cannabinoïdes,

IACM: Déclaration du Conseil sur la pandémie actuelle du corona virus et l'utilisation des cannabinoïdes IACM-Bulletin du 26 Mars 2020   Plusieurs études en laboratoire suggèrent que les cannabinoïdes peuvent avoir des effets antiviraux et antibactériens. Nous l’avons rapporté à plusieurs reprises dans le Bulletin de l'IACM. Cependant, il n'y a aucune preuve que des cannabinoïdes, tels que le CBD, le CBG ou le THC, ou encore des préparations de cannabis protègent contre l'infection du SRAS-CoV2 ou pourraient être utilisés pour traiter le Covid-19, la maladie produite par ce virus. Par ailleurs, rien ne prouve que l'utilisation de cannabinoïdes puisse augmenter le risque d'infection [...]
