The U.S. Government has a CBD Patent
…Wait, What??? The same Govt. that has kept CBD illegal for 100 years? Yes, it is true! There is a U.S. CBD Patent
Patent 6,630,507 was issued to the U.S. Government under the Dept. of Health and Human Services. The CBD Patent was originally filed in 1999 and awarded a patent in 2003 – almost 20 years ago. United States federal government holds the patent on non-psychoactive cannabinoids — including CBD, as a treatment for specific illnesses.
What does the U.S. CBD Patent Say?
The patent clearly states that “cannabinoids are useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.”
Now myself nor Stirling CBD Oil would never claim these things to be true – we would get in a lot of trouble if we did. We are simply quoting the specific U.S. CBD Patent and Stirling CBD is not adding any additional scientific data or antidotal information to the quote.
Even more amazing is that the CBD patent specifically details diseases and conditions that CBD improves, including “particular application as (CENSORED) to help with (CENSORED) – sorry I was censored, – but you can check it out for yourself.
Most of us know people who have had severe mental and physical diseases, and now we must wonder if these people had access to CBD, could it have helped them? We will never be able to answer this – but it is a good question. Once again, these are not the opinion or medical advice of Stirling CBD.
Who Researched and developed the Patent?
The inventor of the patent was a former Research Fellow at National Institute for Mental Health Aidan Hampson. Aidan spent his career researching cannabis for medical use. According to his LinkedIn Profile, Hampson was mentored by Nobel Laureate Julius Axelrod. This is an interesting team, as Axelrod’s research led to the development of Prozac.
Putting it simply, the same guy which helped develop Prozac worked with one of his students to test CBD and eventually patent it. What makes this even more interesting is the Prozac made billions in profits, while he never made CBD into a commercially available medicine. Is it because it was nowhere near as profitable?
CBD Patent Implications
Indeed, Journalist and Oregon NORML activist Angela Bacca said the U.S. patent of medical uses for cannabinoids has shown the hypocrisy of federal marijuana prohibition and the greed of big pharma.
“This patent shows that federal marijuana prohibition is a farce,” said Bacca. “[Prohibition] only exists to create profits for certain groups of people.”
Even leaders of the industry don’t deny the hypocrisy in patent no. 6,630,507. By classifying marijuana as a Schedule I drug (marijuana is, not CBD from Hemp), it means that all parts of the plant are deemed unsafe for consumption, according to the DEA and US government.
Yet, the US government has a patent on synthetic cannabinoid drugs derived from marijuana, which are then being approved by the FDA. If it treats all those conditions it says in the patent, why is the govt. saying it is dangerous? Maybe it is dangerous because it would eat the profits of big companies.
Legalizing CBD or Cannabis in general in the United States would instantly change the distribution of profits. Many people and companies would be filing for patents and racing to corner the market. Kannalife, GW Pharmaceuticals, and other current patent holders would be up against competition instead of having the industry nearly all to themselves, which would cut into both their own profit and the profit the government.
Pretty amazing stuff, and some evidence that top U.S. Govt. scientists have a strong belief in CBD’s ability to improve people’s lives and health.
So, yes. There is a U.S. CBD Patent.
So this begs the question, what can we do about it? Should we do something about the U.S. CBD Patent?
Is this a situation we should just accept? Can we do nothing about the Govt.?
If we were in China, we could do nothing. Since we are in the U.S. we can let them know that this is wrong and work to invoke change. Tell your congressperson and the DEA how you feel. Whether you prefer to give them the hand or the finger, bringing awareness to this hypocrisy will show the government that we know what is going on and we want to make 100% certain CBD is legal for everyone, even in the few states where CBD is still classified as a Schedule 1 drug. The craziness will continue until we get let these facts come to light.
