While you were napping in 2003, the US Govt. Department of Health & Human Services registered a patent on Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants.
US Patent No: 6,630,507 B1
That’s pretty weird because another branch of the same government the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) on the 2nd of Aug 2019, continued to maintain that Cannabis and Cannabinoids would not be rescheduled, stating 3 reasons:
The potential for, and history of abuse and addiction
Lack of accepted medical use
Lack of safety information – Figure that out !?!?!?
