Cannabis Patent Law

Federal patent law is an available protection for cannabis-related inventions. Because the industry has been underground for so long, many inventors have never considered the benefits of patent protection. Now that prohibition is ending in many jurisdictions, the time has come to embrace and protect innovation by applying for a cannabis patent.

Most patent attorneys chuckle when an inventor presents such an invention for patenting. Patent attorneys are not laughing any longer. Unfortunately these very same patent attorneys lack an understanding of the underlying technology. As a result, they are unable to determine what is novel and what is not – a key component of patentability.
