cannabis strain patents
Protect your stable cannabis strains
Patenting is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your inventions, including your stable cannabis strains. Until recently, the United States Patent and Trademark Office has been sitting on literally hundreds of pending cannabis hybrid patent applications. We at cannapatents are excited to announce that this appears to have changed. Carefully drafted cannabis hybrid patents may now be eligible for patent protection.
We strongly encourage all cannabis growers and breeders to consider how to best protect your unique strains. This change of policy is certain to have direct, substantial, and long-lasting consequences for the cannabis industry. As the industry matures, protection of cannabis hybrids will become of singular importance, particularly for growers and breeders.

transferring your patent rights
Once you've secured your patent you have the right to sell or license it. Whether you're a patent owner or you'd like to use another's invention, we can help you navigate the complex web of laws, regulations, disclosures, and filings to achieve your goals.
protect your business and product names
Trademarks protect your business name, product name, or logos. While a patent can protect your inventions, they cannot prevent others from marketing products in ways similar to yours, nor can you be certain a competitor won't accuse you of the same.
trade secret protection and
another way to protect your inventions
Some inventions and inventors are better suited to maintaining secrecy of a technology rather than disclosing to the USPTO and the public. In these cases, your intellectual property may still be protected by contracts between the inventor and any party they permit to view the invention. Doing so in a legally enforceable way requires careful drafting and attention to detail, as these types of documents are certainly not one-size-fits-all.
