A former NFL player has been told to stop promoting his CBD gummy products as a coronavirus cure

US regulators have sent a warning letter to Neuro XPF, a wellness brand owned by former National Football League player Kyle Turley, for promoting CBD gummies as a prevention tool against the novel coronavirus.

“Crush Corona,” it said on the Neuro XPF site. “Your best defense against the COVID-19 blitz starts with a strong immune system.”

The page has since been taken down, but Turley’s belief that cannabis can cure every disease remains steadfast. “The US FDA will one day acknowledge the power of cannabis and its ability to prevent & cure COVID19 and every other disease,” Turley tweeted on March 31. In another tweet, he appeared to claim that cannabis was a cure for cancer.
