Swiss CBD company accuses Juul of stealing patent

A Swiss CBD company is accusing e-cigarette maker Juul of infringing on one of its patents.

SwissX alleges in a lawsuit that Juul pods copy a nicotine vapor delivery system that SwissX bought the rights to last year, according to Law 360. The lawsuit was filed in Delaware federal court.

SwissX, which is owned by billionaire Alki David, alleges in the lawsuit that Juul has known about the patent since at least March 2018.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued the patent in May 2016 to inventor Robert Safari, who assigned it SwissX. The patented system combines an e-liquid chamber and vaporization chamber into a single component.
