On April 27, 2020 CQENS Technologies Inc. was informed that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a Notice of Allowability in connection with our Heat-not-Burn Device and Method patent application, filed June 28, 2018. A notice of allowance means that the prosecution of the merits is now closed and a United States Letters Patent will issue on or before July 22, 2020.
The patent covers the technology behind the proprietary CQENS System—a device and method for the heating of a plant-based consumable formulation and the subsequent production of an aerosol leading to the effective and efficient inhalation of the plant’s constituents. This is accomplished at a high temperature, but without combustion or the accompanying constituents of combustion. The technology differs from other such technologies currently on the market because CQENS is a high-temperature, non-combustion system, unlike the low-temp, non-combustion systems available today.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
