As most of us know there is no government approved cure for COVID-19. So why is an ex NFL star insisting that CBD, a popular non-psychoactive cannabis derivative, can cure the coronavirus?
The federal government is warning former National Football League player, Kyle Turley, to stop claiming that his medicinal cannabis products can work as treatments for the novel coronavirus.
Turley’s company, Neuro XPF, advertised on its website that “Your best defense against the COVID-19 blitz starts with a strong immune system,” the page claimed, and “a growing body of scientific evidence shows that CBD can help keep your immune system at the top of its game.”
“We want everyone to take CBD and take advantage of its potential to help prepare your body to fight a coronavirus infection,” Neuro XPF said. “So, we’re making all of our products more affordable.”
Well, those claims quickly caught the attention of the FDA, who have been trying to crack down on illegal scams and claims regarding COVID-19 treatments.
The FDA sent Neuro XPF a letter regarding the claims. “FDA is taking urgent measures to protect consumers from certain products that, without approval or authorization by FDA, claim to mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure COVID-19 in people,” the agencies’ joint letter advised. “We request that you take immediate action to cease the sale of such unapproved and unauthorized products for the mitigation, prevention, treatment, diagnosis, or cure of COVID-19.”
It appears that Neuro XPF has since removed its claims, and has taken down their website page that was once dedicated to Coronavirus cures.
