Cannabis Trademark 101

Written By: Brandon Dorsky

A trademark is a symbol, word, or words legally registered or established by use as representing a company or product. Trademarks are meant to serve as source identifiers that signal to a consumer the origin(s) of a product or service.   Both the federal government and state governments allow for the registration of trademarks as a property right for goods or services used in commerce.  

Trademark law requires that, for a trademark to be registered, the use(s) in commerce must be lawful.   Precisely because the registration of a trademark requires that the use of the trademark be on lawful goods or services, registering a trademark for a business name or logo for a cannabusiness could potentially be an exercise in frustration.
