We all know that the US government fights hard to keep cannabis a Schedule I drug (the same category as heroin and PCP), claiming it has no medical value.
On the other hand, the US Department of Health and Human Services has a different opinion, as it owns US Patent 6630507 for the medicinally therapeutic properties of the cannabis plant.
Back in 1999, the US government issued a patent for cannabis-based compounds to itself.
Yet, cannabis patients, caregivers, and advocates are still fighting to prove the herb’s healing properties.
What the US Patent 6630507 Says
The patent clearly states that cannabinoids are potent antioxidants that can treat a myriad of ischemic, age-related, inflammatory, and auto-immune disorders.
Further, the patent says that cannabinoids are also a natural neuroprotectant that could help treat neurological damage caused by stroke and trauma and other neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis.
Due to this definition of cannabinoids having known medical and therapeutic effects by the US Government, the number 6630507 went viral on the internet. Cannabis users and supporters from all over the world told the DEA to talk to the hand. You can see a sample pic above.
What Does The Patent 6630507 Mean?
Essentially, US Patent 6630507 means specific departments of the US Government are at odds with approaching cannabis, medicinally or otherwise.
On one side, you have the US Department of Health and Human Services which maintains a patent for a medical miracle. On the other, you have the Drug Enforcement Agency fighting to keep it illegal.
A spokesperson for the National Institutes of Health, Mark Rorabaugh, said in an interview with the Denver Post:
“The patent doesn’t prove the chemical compound is effective in the stated treatment. The compound would have to be purified, synthesized in a lab setting, subjected to extensive testing in animals and humans, and ultimately require U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval to show that it’s safe and effective for the intended purpose.”
However, Kannalife, a company out of New York, has been granted an exclusive license for using technology outlined within the patent for making cannabis-based drugs to treat hepatic encephalopathy.
Kannalife also has a non-exclusive license to develop a cannabidiol-based medication to treat chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE. CTE has come under a microscope in several years due to its prevalence in retired NFL football players and fighters who’ve had one too many concussions.
So, Uncle Sam, Which Is it?
Although the American public would love to sit around and wait for the next 15 years while you battle it out in skewed scientific studies, insufficient data, and biased panels… civilizations have been safely using the cannabis plant as medicine for thousands of years.
Children with severe epilepsy are given back their childhood, opiate addicts are given a second chance, cancer patients are finding a way to survive and some of us use it to relax or just have a good time.
Cannabis can, and does, significantly improve the quality of life for many people.
I don’t care if it’s THC-based or CBD-based, cannabis has amazing healing properties. Over 100 scientific studies on cannabinoids already exist. Millions of testimonials exist. It is already a prescribed drug! Somewhere around 80% of the remaining chemicals in industrial hemp: terpenes, flavanoids, omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and so on, are ALL already on the FDA’s GRAS list. The ONLY reason they are prohibiting the claim of cannabinoid healing is under the “disguise” that dosing is not yet “established”, keeping it solely in the hands of pharmaceuticals. This is out of control. OTC vitamins, chemicals, and other ingredients are allowed without any known “dosing” level. the FDA permits dozens upon dozens of chemicals that are actually dangerous. And, we ALL know that it comes down to money. Fine – if the FDA wants to remain a corrupt organization, then if there are a million of us (although there are far more than that), then we can all pitch in $30. That’s $19.5 million to lobby our Congress people (a nice way of saying bribery, imho), $500,000 to pay off the firms to get into their offices for the lobbying, and $10 million to pay off the FDA (you know, “lobby” them). Why? All so that they will SIMPLY stop screwing around with the Farm bills and open up industrial hemp. Of course, we’ll have to fight with China and Canada who still want to be kings of exporting it into our country and I’m sure a few companies that make textiles (not mentioning names like duPont) may throw a fit knowing that people will find out the materials benefit of hemp over fiberglass, steel, and plastic, and of course the fossil fuel oil and corn oil companies will be a little peeved about the biologically beneficial use of industrial hemp and hemp seed oil in place of other oils, but if we can get past ALL of that – it’s a win-win for America. Of course, I’ve been fighting this for a long time. I won’t pay anyone off (I don’t have the money), and I’ve provided the scientific rationale and support for restoring America’s cannabinoid industry … but I’ve done most of it alone or without much support, because we’re all too spread out. As soon as we can find a way to unite – we can win with numbers and economics. Just a thought for those readers that understand how Cannabis has been a natural medical benefit to billions around the planet and why it’s “high time”, we fight for our rights.
It really needs to be legalised in the UK when will the government realise it helps people with medical conditions
Thanks for information. I know first hand this is a better medecine for most illness than most medecine
made in some laboratory. I just dont understand why people think something growing from this earth is more dangerous than alcohol. ( or medecine made in a laboratory). I think it all comes down to money and power.
