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.
