Seller of BioCBD+ Products Warned for COVID-19 and Drug Claims
On February 11, 2021, the FDA issued a warning letter to Evolved Ayurvedic Discoveries, Inc./BioCBDPlus following a review of the company's website, which found statements made about the company's products BioCBD+ Total Body Care, BioCBD+ Topical Oil Muscle & Joint Support, and BioCBD+ Peace Vape to be drug claims. In addition, the products were sold with unsupported claims that they can treat coronavirus (COVID-19).
The FDA has previously stated: "There currently are no vaccines, pills, potions, lotions, lozenges or other prescription or over-the-counter products available to treat or cure coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)."
BioCBD+ products were promoted with statements such as "May Support Depression and Mood Disorders," "Reduces the risk of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis," "CBD for autism could help because CBD is a powerful antioxidant with neuroprotective properties that protect the brain against neurodegenerative disorders," and "As COVID-19 spreads around the world, customers are asking us how CBD can help... the good news is, a healthy immune system may support you during this pandemic, and CBD is great for immune support."
