BANGKOK, 19th November 2018 (NNT) - Minister of Commerce Sonthirat Sonthijirawong has instructed the director-general of the Department of Intellectual Property to enforce Section 30 of the patent law, to reject applications for patents for cannabis extract by foreign companies in Thailand. 

The minister said two of a total of 11 applications have been turned down. Eight of the applications which requested the use of cannabis extract as a component will be accepted, said the minister. 

One of the rejected applications requested a patent for cannabis extract. This application is against the the patent law, said the minister. 

The minister called on the private sector to rest assured that they can still use cannabis extract to develop new products such as medicines and synthetic substances and apply for a patent. Mr.Sonthirat also confirmed that the patent law will not affect the narcotics draft act which will authorize the use of cannabis for medical research.
