Life Extension Technology And Cannabis Formulations
Written by: Kevin Fortin
During the last ten years, my career has focused on cannabis formulation patents. As a patent attorney with three decades of experience, I am often asked what is the best cannabis formulation you have seen? My short answer is, “There are many, and each is best.” It just depends on what a person is looking to achieve.
My longer response typically comes in the form of a question: “What do you want to achieve?” I understand that one may wish to combat basil cell carcinoma, glioblastoma, dravet syndrome (i.e., childhood epilepsy), insomnia, manage pain, reduce inflammation, or stimulate the appetite. Women sometimes need relief on a monthly basis. “My dog has lymphoma,” one person exclaimed after the question was asked.
In 2010 I remembered hearing of the famous professor from the University of Colorado named Dr. Bob Melamede. While this molecular biologist and biochemist is famous for researching numerous aspects of Cannabis, I was enamored partly by his intellect and achievement and enamored fully by reports of his spry and energetic mode of operation. This was at a time when most should have already retired. How did he do it? Was the cannabis usage extending his life and making him spry and youthful?
