Cannabis, Weed, CBD have not be shown to be effective for COVID19
CBD is being talked about almost everywhere and many companies tout their CBD prodcuts a magical one-stop fix, for all ailments. When it comes to COVID19 – we want to be very clear with you all, there is no research to support CBD, weed or cannabis as a treatment or prevention for Coronavirus.
“During these difficult times, we encourage people to be skeptical of any unsubstantiated claims, particularly those circulating online, surrounding the use of cannabis or any other uncorroborated treatment for COVID-19.”Erik Altieri – NORML Executive Director
Sharing Cannabis is not Caring during Covid19
People around the world are practicing physical distancing to help slow down the spread of COVID-19. This means we are spending a lot more time inside. You maybe sharing your living spaces with others 24/7. This does not mean that we can share all things! Just because we are sharing a home does not mean we can share our stash. You should refrain from sharing joints, bongs, or pipes.
Protect your Lungs
COVID-19 causes adverse respiratory illness in those with the disease, with symptoms like shortness of breath and dry coughing. Now is a good time to attempt alternatives to smoking cannabis if you are able. It is critically important to keep yourself physically and mentally healthy.
“What happens to your airways when you smoke cannabis is that it causes some degree of inflammation”Albert Rizzo, MD, Chief Medical Officer, American Lung Association
Protect your Mind
Fear, stress, confusion, sadness and worry are normal feelings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this you might feel like you’re no longer in control of things. People are attempting to cope with this in many ways like exercise, nutrition and staying in touch virtually. But don’t forget about cannabis. Legal cannabis purchases are up and consumers are finding mental support thru the magic of Cannabis. It should be considered as one of the tools that you can use for managing the anxiety, boredom and loneliness.
We are all in this together. Everyone is experiencing something as a result of self isolation and physical distancing.
Stay safe. Stay home if your able. Stay the Course. Stay in Touch.
