The current treatment for HIV is antiretrovirals that suppress the Virus. This is not a complete solution, however its use with Cannabis has some promising results.
HIV Drugs are useless against the resistant HIV strains. That's where the cannabis comes in. The Cannabinoids that are found in Cannabis fight "HIV-related Kaposi Sarcoma as well as drug-resistant strains of HIV".
There are also other studies where apes were used to test THC's affects on Simian immunodeficiency virus. The results were a "generalized attenuation of viral load and tissue inflammation"
Still more research is needed to safely say Cannabis is a cure.
