I saw the “Novel Cannabis Condom” patent application circulating online the last few days, as it made its way to the US PTO (Patent & Trademark Office) website finally. This patent application was originally submitted and back in December 2015 and was showing up online on the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) website for quite some time. So, yes, it’s true. It’s a real Patent Application and it really does show up on a search with the US PTO.
As you can see from the screenshot below, the official title for this ‘invention’ is: “NOVEL CONDOM COMPRISING CANNABIS DERIVED COMPOSITIONS FOR ENHANCEMENT OF SEXUAL PLEASURE AND DECREASE OF ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION SYMPTOMS”.
Since the USPTO.gov website doesn’t really work for copy/paste of URLs, here’s the screenshot from this morning:
If you want to search for it yourself, you would go to https://portal.uspto.gov/pair/PublicPair and search for Publication Number: “20170367875”.
Why haven’t we heard about this from the company yet? I’m sure there are a number of reasons. First, it simply may not be on their “priority list” as a field of study. They may have been waiting for it to become ‘more officially accepted’ Intellectual Property before wasting time on testing and studies. Your guess is as good as mine.
One thing is certain — we have even more reason to expect an additional PR at some point. When? Who knows. Again, this may not be high up on the priority list. I don’t know about you, but I want them to make the Canadian crosslist official and then let us know about a new distributor who actually gives us a timeline for dispensary type sales.
As always, I will continue being patient and you must decide for yourself if you’re going to ‘risk your money’ and do the same.
