US Patent 6,630,507: CANNABINOIDS AS ANTIOXIDANTS AND NEUROPROTECTANTS

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most predominant cannabinoid in hemp, and has many beneficial properties.

In its patent (#6,630,507) titled CANNABINOIDS AS ANTIOXIDANTS AND NEUROPROTECTANTS, the U.S. federal government makes many impressive claims about CBD and cannabis, stating that:

  • “Cannabinoids are potent antioxidants… they easily penetrate tissues giving them the ability to enter the central nervous system and brain.”
  • “Non-psychoactive cannabinoids such as CBD are particularly advantageous as they are non-toxic… and exhibit unique antioxidant properties without the undesirable effects of THC.”
  • “The antioxidant strength of CBD is significantly greater than that of either Vitamin C or Vitamin E.”
  • "It has surprisingly been found that cannabidiol and other cannabinoids can function as neuroprotectants, even though they lack NMDA receptor antagonist activity."
