Colorado medical marijuana companies embroiled in federal patent dispute
A Colorado cannabis company has filed a patent-infringement lawsuit in Denver federal court claiming a rival in Conifer filched its cannabinoid medical product formula.
United Cannabis Corporation of Golden (UCANN) filed the lawsuit in Denver U.S. District Court Monday against Pure Hemp Collective Inc. of Conifer. The lawsuit seeks an injunction prohibiting Pure Hemp from copying its formulas that are part of the so-called “911 Patent.”
UCANN is also seeking triple damages against Pure Hemp on the basis that its actions are “willful,” according to the lawsuit filed by Broomfield attorney Orion Armon.
