Patents Relate to Company’s Proprietary Prana Bio Nutrient Medicinals Targeting Disorders of the Nervous System, Immune System and Cancer

Denver, CO / ACCESSWIRE / October 28, 2014 / United Cannabis Corp. (OTCBB: CNAB) (the “Company” or “United Cannabis”) today announced that it has filed for provisional patents related to unique combinations of pharmaceutically active cannabinoids used to treat disorders of the nervous system, immune system and cancer, with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Using data derived from preclinical and clinical studies, United Cannabis’ research team has identified unique ratios and specifications of cannabinoids that can be used to target the underlying mechanisms of disorders such as PTSD, neuropathy and breast cancer.

Tony Verzura, United Cannabis Chief Technology Officer, commented, “Our focus is not on the treatment of symptoms of disease, but rather on reversing the underlying pathology that drives and contributes to specific disorders. These patents stem from that unique approach and the success we have seen for patients using our Prana products and A.C.T. Now Program.”

Earnie Blackmon, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, further explains “United Cannabis is dedicated to exploring the role that cannabinoids can play in the field of regenerative medicine, with the goal of not only restoring a balance in physiology but also augmenting the body’s ability to regenerate and heal itself.”
