A medical cannabis company focused on developing a cannabinoid-based treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder has filed for a U.S. provisional patent.

On Monday Allied Corp. (OTCQB: ALID) said the patent application covers its proprietary products ALID-10, ALID-11 and other novel cannabis-based compounds designed to treat PTSD and other mental disorders.
