US Patent No 6630507

I am borrowing this picture above that was posted on the internet.  I've noticed that the US Patent # posted on the picture is not the same Patent # I am sharing with you here.  I have not yet researched for the Patent # mentioned in the picture but I do have information below on Patent # 6630507

US Patent 6630507 -

Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants

The US government holds a patent on medical hemp unlike many of us were led to believe.  Many of us were under the impression that it was a major drug company which held the patent.

We confirmed it at the patent office, that the United States Government, who has imprisoned and caused the untimely deaths of many over the issue of marijuana/hemp, holds a patent on medical hemp. They made it illegal for us to study and use one of the most effective medicines on the planet while they took their time getting a patent on it.

The Department of Health and Human Services hold the patent 6630507, Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants, a medical hemp patent.

Below is the text of the patent,
US Patent No 6630507,

US Patent Issued on
October 7, 2003


Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.

The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in theatreatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, HIV  and dementia. 

Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabid oil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention.

A particular disclosed class of cannabinoids useful as neuroprotective antioxidants is formula(I) where in the R group is independently selected from the group consisting of H, CH3, and COCH3. ##STR1##
