The U.S. Government Patent on Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants

The U.S. Government has a patent on Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants.  According to U.S. government patent documents“Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant and neuroprotectant properties, making 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 the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.”

“Hemp-based non-psychoactive cannabinoids are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses”

(US patent 6,630,507)
