Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Begins Laboratory Venture with National Research Council

- Collaborative venture could lead to strengthening of company’s patent portfolio, new commercial opportunities
- Firm receives patent in Australia, anticipates entering that market through cannabinoid licensing arrangements and product distribution partnerships
- LXRP names Allan Spissinger acting chief financial officer

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) has begun laboratory work with the National Research Council (“NRC”) (http://nnw.fm/ujFU0). The collaboration will begin studies using LXRP’s patented technologies. The research will include the company’s technology in vitamins, NSAIDs, nicotine and cannabinoids utilizing lipophilic active agents. LXRP has patented technology involving how those agents are ingested into the human body in various edibles, such as beverages, foods, capsules and others means.

LXRP has also named Allan Spissinger (http://nnw.fm/kcVB3) as its acting chief financial officer, secretary and treasurer. He has been with the company since September 2014, when he joined as corporate controller. A CPA, he has more than 10 years’ experience in corporate IT infrastructure and software development before focusing of finance and accounting.

The firm, based in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, is a food biosciences company which is a technology disrupter for edible CBDs. It markets a high absorption hemp oil formulation for exotic teas, protein energy bars and high absorption hemp oil capsules that aid in the body’s absorption of CBDs. It is focusing on developing more products for the edible cannabis market.

The joint research venture with the NRC will use advanced analytical techniques. Practical application of the resulting research could broaden or strengthen LXRP’s intellectual property portfolio and even lead to additional commercial arrangements, per a recent statement from the company.

LXRP has a number of international patents, including the recent 20-year effective patent approval issued by Australia (http://nnw.fm/R0nZZ) for the company’s edible cannabis absorption method, time of onset and taste of cannabinoid’s active agents in food.

“We are very pleased to have received this patent which effectively covers all cannabis oil extract formulated edibles using our technology in Australia,” Chris Bunka, chief executive officer of LXRP, stated in a news release. “This patent award allows us to confidently enter the recently legalized Australian cannabis marketplace where we will seek additional licensing and product distribution partnering opportunities.”

A similar patent was granted in the U.S. in 2016, and Bunka added that LXRP anticipates progress on its patent portfolios throughout the remainder of 2017 and into 2018. In the U.S., the company successfully filed a provisional patent application (http://nnw.fm/Gle8p) and stock and option awards in June 2017. It expands the company’s existing patent in the U.S. to microwave processing.

Landmark M&A Deals Continue to Shape Big Pharma

NetworkNewsWire Editorial Coverage: Merger and acquisition activity has played a massive role in the formation of the pharmaceutical industry as it exists today. Historic deals, like Pfizer’s 2009 purchase of pharmaceutical giant Wyeth for $68 billion and Glaxo Wellcome’s purchase of SmithKline Beecham for $76 billion in 2000, have created a consolidated market that’s often driven forward by the innovations of smaller companies. Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) (LXRP Profile), with its promising intellectual property portfolio focused on revolutionizing the delivery of a variety of molecules to the human body, is well-positioned to continue on this history of acquisition in the pharmaceutical space, following in the footsteps of companies like Derma Sciences, Inc., which was acquired by Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: IART) for approximately $200 million, and CoLucid Pharmaceuticals, Inc., which was acquired by Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) in a landmark $960 million deal. With analyst rumblings pointing toward additional high-profile buyouts of industry upstarts like ACADIA Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACAD) and Incyte Corp. (NASDAQ: INCY), the time to cash in on the next Big Pharma acquisition could be at hand.

While the acquisition frenzy in pharmaceuticals spans the entirety of the colossal global industry, few subsectors have demonstrated more potential for promising upstarts than the medicinal cannabis market. Projected by Arcview Market Research to eclipse $20.2 billion in North American sales by 2021, the legal marijuana industry, including both medicinal and recreational markets, is expected to create more than a quarter of a million jobs by 2020, outpacing economic mainstays like manufacturing, utilities and government positions. This forecast expansion has already set the stage for a number of industry acquisitions, many of which have taken place in the soon-to-be federally legalized Canadian market. One such is example Canopy Growth Corp.’s April acquisition of rTrees Producers Limited, a late-stage Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACPMR”) applicant. The rTrees acquisition brought a 90,000 square foot indoor growing facility with considerable room for expansion under Canopy Growth’s already sizable umbrella, expanding upon the market presence of the first Canadian cannabis company to achieve a $1 billion market valuation.

Other industry players have followed Canopy Growth’s lead. In late July, Aurora Cannabis announced plans to make a strategic investment in Hempco Food and Fiber, Inc., one of the world’s largest producers of industrial hemp products. Earlier that same month, Canadian cannabis producer Invictus MD Strategies Corp. invested $5.5 million in AB Ventures, Inc. to fund the costs of licensing approval under the ACMPR and construction of related production facilities. Similar M&A deals were recently completed by Aphria, which invested $11.5 million in endocannabinoid-focused pharmaceutical company Scientus Pharma in mid-August, and Maricann Group, Inc., which recently announced its acquisition of biotech company NanoLeaf Technologies for total transaction consideration of C$40.1 million. The NanoLeaf transaction is particularly intriguing for prospective investors of Lexaria Bioscience, as NanoLeaf possesses “the licensing rights to a number of globally patented technologies that provide proven pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, cosmetic and functional beverage drug delivery formulations.”

This recent industry activity highlights the rising demand for innovative and marketable offerings targeting the burgeoning cannabis sector, but they fail to capture the scale of a potential Lexaria Bioscience transaction. This is because of the wide-ranging applications of Lexaria’s technology platform. To date, the company has noted potential applications for its lipid-based molecular delivery technology that include NSAIDs, nicotine, vitamins and cannabinoids – applications that are supported by 19 currently-pending patents filed in more than 40 countries. According to biotech analysis firm EvaluatePharma, the global market for NSAIDs was valued at $11.4 billion in 2014. Meanwhile, the global market for vitamins in on course to reach $9.3 billion by 2020, the market for alternative nicotine delivery technologies is at an all-time high following recent FDA proposals, and consumer sales of cannabinoids are expected to reach $2.1 billion by 2020. All told, the market potential for Lexaria’s flagship platform could be huge.

It has been precisely this potential, alongside numerous clinical, financial and IP developments, that has driven Lexaria’s growth in recent months. On July 18, the company announced (http://nnw.fm/wI0LB) that the Australian Patent Office granted a patent protecting its method of improving absorption, speed of onset and taste of cannabinoid active agents in edible products. This milestone was particularly noteworthy in that it followed Lexaria’s announcement of a $1 million combined R&D program aimed at examining improvement in absorption offered by its technology for several groups of molecules, including NSAIDs, nicotine, vitamins and cannabinoids. Just last week, the company took a major step toward maximizing on the value of its patented technology by announcing the world’s first clinical study of human volunteers of CBD within its high absorption TurboCBD™ product.

“Lexaria is proud to be advancing our collective knowledge of the benefits of CBD specifically showcasing the benefits of Lexaria’s unique patented delivery technology,” Chris Bunka, CEO of Lexaria, stated in the news release announcing the study. “Results will advance Lexaria’s ability to custom design products that increase the leading performance our technology already offers to customers.”

Strengthening Lexaria’s status as a promising acquisition target is its current cash position. The company has outlined a number of moves to bolster its balance sheet in recent months, most notably its $1 million raise from warrant exercise originally announced on May 19. In total, Lexaria raised over $3 million in the past nine months in a strategic effort to capitalize on the growth of both the pharmaceutical industry as a whole and, perhaps more importantly, the cannabis sector. With funding in place through 2019, according to Bunka, Lexaria has the IP and the capital needed to properly demonstrate the marketability of its lipid-based delivery technology while working with prospective licensees and resellers to maximize returns for early investors.

Recent acquisitions in the pharmaceuticals industry highlight the potential upside Lexaria presents to the investment community. Derma Sciences, Inc., for example, operated as a tissue regeneration company at the forefront of research and innovation for the management of acute and chronic wounds prior to its acquisition by Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: IART) in January of this year. In a slide deck issued following the acquisition, IART noted Derma’s “line of products with patented technologies,” including multiple offerings targeting the burn and wound management market, as a key driver for the transaction. Insights from medical technology analysis firm MedMarket Diligence, LLC suggest that this market is currently growing at a rate of 3.1 percent annually, providing a fertile runway for future sales growth in the space. For comparison, the cannabinoid market, which is just one of many potential indications for Lexaria’s molecular delivery technology, is expected to climb 700 percent from 2016-2020.

Eli Lilly and Company’s (NYSE: LLY) March acquisition of CoLucid Pharmaceuticals, Inc. serves as another example of the aggressive M&A strategy employed by some of the most recognizable names in Big Pharma. At the time of the deal, David R. Ricks, president and chief executive officer of Eli Lilly, noted that the purchase would “enhance Lilly’s existing pain management portfolio and add a potential near-term launch to [its] late-stage pipeline.” This late-stage addition is lasmiditan, an oral tablet that’s currently being evaluated in phase III clinical trials for the acute treatment of migraine headaches in adults. Lasmiditan was actually originally developed by Eli Lilly, but it was licensed to CoLucid in 2005 as part of Lilly’s strategic move away from the pain management market. On top of highlighting the evolving strategies of Big Pharma players to capitalize on industry trends – including cannabis painkillers and related cannabinoid products – the CoLucid acquisition’s focus within the migraine drug market falls well within earshot of Lexaria’s diverse portfolio of potential applications for its lipid-based delivery technology.

In both of these cases, high-dollar acquisitions were fueled by strong intellectual property positions targeting inviting markets within the pharmaceutical industry. This trend rings true when studying other upstart companies that could be in line for big time buyouts. A buyout of ACADIA Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACAD) has been rumored for months, with the company having reportedly received an offer from AstraZeneca in February and interest from Pfizer related to its lead product NUPLAZID®, the only significant compound in the company’s development pipeline. Approved by the FDA for the treatment of hallucinations and delusions associated with Parkinson’s disease, NUPLAZID® is currently in late stage trials for similar symptoms in Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia, giving it the potential to address a massive and growing global market. The company’s stock closed at $36.16 on September 1, and reports from Seeking Alpha suggest that ACADIA’s management team is pushing for a substantial premium for a potential buyout in the range of “$55 to $60 a share.”

Incyte Corp. (NASDAQ: INCY) is another prime buyout target, as reported in an editorial piece published by MarketWatch. “Incyte is a throwback to what biotech companies were meant to be,” RBC Capital Markets analyst Simos Simeonidis told MarketWatch. “It’s built on ‘great science’ that has helped it develop several drugs, and it continually reinvests in its own research.” Incyte’s main product, Jakafi, is an FDA-approved medication used to treat rare blood cancers. Back in March, analysts speculated that Gilead was close to an agreement to acquire Incyte. Although that deal has not yet come to fruition, the Delaware-based company offers a combination of growing revenues and strong R&D programs that makes it a solid acquisition target, particularly as disappointing clinical data from competing trials strengthen the revenue outlook of Incyte’s leading product.

As demonstrated by recent industry activity, Big Pharma’s biggest names stay active on the M&A front, especially as it relates to first-of-their-kind advancements in promising markets. Continued interest in the pipelines of upstarts like ACADIA Pharmaceuticals and Incyte Corporation paints an intriguing picture as Lexaria Bioscience progresses with the world’s first clinical study of CBD within its high absorption TurboCBD™ product. With a strong balance sheet and an increasingly diverse and wide-reaching IP portfolio targeting some of the industry’s highest growth verticals, Lexaria should be on the radar of any investor hoping to cash in on the M&A deal-making bonanza that could be on the horizon.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Continues Showcasing Proprietary Research at Cannabis Investment Conferences

- Proprietary Lexaria technology improves delivery of bioactive compounds in a variety of products, including cannabis-based gourmet foods
- Market predictions for the legal marijuana industry forecast $50 billion in sales by 2026
- 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries

Following a successful showing at the inaugural Institutional Capital & Cannabis Conference (IC3) in California earlier this month, Lexaria Bioscience (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) CEO Chris Bunka expects the company to be noticed by investors. Bunka’s presentation of the company’s latest technology slated to benefit the cannabis industry includes the world’s first clinical study on human volunteers of cannabidiol (CBD) within Lexaria’s TurboCBD™ product.

The study, which aims to evaluate the effects of TurboCBD™ on both cardiovascular health and cognitive function, will have a double-blind and placebo controlled cross-over design measuring effects after a single dose, as well as seven days of daily dosing, in 24 volunteers (http://nnw.fm/Uh5R4).

“Results will advance Lexaria’s ability to custom design products that increase the leading performance our technology already offers to customers,” Bunka said in a press release outlining the project.

While Hurricane Irma has postponed Bunka’s next mainstream presentation, slated for the now on-hold Institutional Capital & Cannabis Conference in Miami Beach, Florida, Lexaria continues its drive to showcase the benefits of the company’s unique patented delivery technology (http://nnw.fm/e7OkE).

Lexaria researchers work to solve a critical problem facing the cannabis industry – the fact that most of the CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that people consume, through any method, is literally flushed away in the proverbial toilet. To that end, Lexaria has focused on discovering new technologies that can more efficiently deliver cannabinoids to the bloodstream, where they can have their desired effect.

Lexaria’s patented DehydraTECH™ technology solves this problem by delivering cannabinoids in an oral form that masks any undesirable taste but increases bioabsorption, speed of effectiveness and potency. This method of delivery is a more viable and healthier method than smoking or vaping cannabis, a route that non-users and medical providers frown upon due to documented health concerns.

Marijuana is now legal in some form in 29 states and Canada. In fact, the Canadian government is expected to legalize adult use of cannabis in 2018, and there are growing movements in the U.S. to legalize cannabis nationwide, as well. Industry experts predict that U.S. retail sales alone could reach $50 billion by 2026 (http://nnw.fm/0mG2S).

Lexaria Bioscience Corp.’s (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Oral CBD Product to Be Tested by the University of British Columbia

- The University of British Columbia (UBC) will conduct a double-blind study of Lexaria’s TurboCBD™ oral ingestion product
- TurboCBD™ masks foul tastes, protects pharmaceutical ingredients during stomach passage and increases intestinal absorption by 5-10x
- The UBC study will include 24 volunteers and test their cognitive and cardiovascular function after single doses and after seven days of administration

Traditionally, cannabidiol (CBD) is ingested via inhalation, which can harm the lungs, and many edible products contain unwanted sugars or sweeteners. Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) has revolutionized oral intake with its TurboCBD™ product. Engineered to increase absorption through the intestinal tract, without active compounds destroyed by stomach acid or broken down by the liver, the product also masks the flavor of compounds with undesirable tastes. In August 2017, the University of British Columbia (UBC) announced (http://nnw.fm/3GYyd) that it will conduct the first clinical study of the high-absorption product while evaluating its effects on cognitive function and cardiovascular health of human volunteers.

Currently, Lexaria is the only company to have been awarded a patent for delivery of ingestible non-psychoactive cannabinoids. It holds patents in the U.S. and Australia, and more are pending in over 40 other countries. The upcoming UBC study will be double-blind and placebo controlled. Researchers will measure the effects after a single dose and after seven days of daily doses. The 24 volunteers will consist of young and old individuals, whose glucose, blood pressure, vascular function, cognition, and physical performance will be measured. Blood samples, exercise tests, heart rate, respiration, and neuropsychological tests, among other measurements, will be conducted as well. These tests will provide a complete set of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic performance data of Lexaria’s TurboCBD™.

Regarding the expected outcome of the study, professor Philip Ainslie, PhD, stated in the recent report, “…To quantify the pharmacokinetics of TurboCBD™ will allow us to make informed recommendations of optimum dosing in order to improve vascular health and performance throughout healthy aging. Once we understand these processes better, the applications to various clinical populations can then be explored…”

Details of the test results are expected to be released once the study is completed and the data are interpreted.

According to Lexaria, its “plant-to-bloodstream” product amplifies intestinal absorption by 5-10x. It uses fatty acids, which combine with the active pharmaceutical ingredient to block them from bitter taste receptors on the tongue. Active ingredients are protected by lipids as they pass through the stomach. In the small intestine, long chain fatty acids are absorbed directly into the lymphatic system, while medium chain fatty acids are absorbed via the liver.

An August 2015 in vitro absorption study, conducted in a third party lab, found a 499 percent increase in CBD bioabsorption in the intestines. A human focus study in March 2016 revealed the onset of THC effects in 15 to 20 minutes, while test subjects praised the taste of the product. The company also entered into a collaborative research agreement with Canada’s National Research Council, which was signed in February 2017.

NetworkNewsBreaks – University of British Columbia to Conduct Clinical Study of Lexaria Bioscience Corp.’s (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Game-Changing Oral CBD Product

While cannabidiol and other marijuana-derived substances are traditionally smoked, this can cause damage to the lungs, and edible cannabis products have their drawbacks, too—typically being filled with sugars or other sweeteners to mask the unpleasant flavor associated with cannabis compounds. With its pioneering TurboCBD™ product, however, Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) has revolutionized oral CBD intake, having engineered the product to enhance absorption through the intestinal tract without active compounds being destroyed by stomach acid or broken down by the liver, and this revolutionary product also masks the unpleasant flavor of cannabis compounds.

Advances in Drug Delivery Hold the Promise of Reducing Inevitable Side Effects

NetworkNewsWire Editorial Coverage: The hazards of pharmacology have hardly changed since Paracelsus, a famous Renaissance physician, astoundingly declared that it was only the dosage that separated a medicine from a poison, bundled with adverse side effects. Despite considerable advances in medicine, many medications are still as injurious as their Renaissance precursors. Nevertheless, recent developments in drug delivery technologies increasingly suggest that safer, more efficient treatment options are on the horizon. At the core of this potential are cannabinoids. Developments in this rapidly growing segment of the medical marijuana market are pioneered by a vast number of innovators, including Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) (LXRP Profile), GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH), Zynerba Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: ZYNE), Cara Therapeutics (NASDAQ: CARA) and Philip Morris (NYSE: PM), all of which are invested in the cannabis space.

Research findings in the cannabinoid field continue to astonish and elate. In August 2017, Lexaria Bioscience announced (http://nnw.fm/h7aG8) the world’s first clinical study on human volunteers of cannabidiol (CBD) within Lexaria’s high absorption TurboCBD™ product. The study will evaluate the effects of CBD on cardiovascular health and cognitive function. Lexaria’s TurboCBD, a brand of technologically enhanced, high absorption hemp oil capsules, came to market in March 2017. Its CBD content is fortified with high-quality American ginseng and ginkgo biloba for support of enhanced focus and memory, and reduced stress and fatigue.

TurboCBD capsules contain a combination of CBD and minute quantities of long chain fatty acids like sunflower oil, utilizing a proprietary technology to create an amalgam that increases the ability of the human gastrointestinal system to absorb CBD. In vitro and human focus study testing has shown increases in CBD absorption using Lexaria’s technology by as much as 5-10 times more than conventional preparations. Those studies also demonstrated rapid onset of action in as little as 15 minutes.

The TurboCBD study is designed to test a number of hypotheses expected to follow after its supplementation: (i) that circulating CBD and nitric oxide will increase in both young and old participants; (ii) that glucose and blood pressure will remain stable; and (iii) that vascular function, and cognitive and physical exercise performance will improve to a greater extent in older participants. The study will be conducted by researchers at the University of British Columbia, which has consistently been ranked as one of the top three universities in Canada. The institution is also considered one of the top research universities in the world and has conducted several earlier studies in the cannabis sector, available for review at http://nnw.fm/o8O9a.

Lexaria has also developed and commercialized a patented and cost-effective delivery technology, DehydraTECH™, which has been both laboratory and market proven to enhance the performance of beneficial compounds in ingestible products across four categories: taste, smell, speed of action, and bio-absorption and bio-availability.

At present, Lexaria is the only company in the world that has been awarded a patent for the improved (oral or ingestible, including pills) delivery of all non-psychoactive cannabinoids. Patents have been awarded in the U.S. and Australia and are pending in 40 more countries. This puts the company in the unusually advantageous position of owning proprietary technology that can deliver a vast range of non-psychoactive cannabinoid-based drugs.

Notably, because Lexaria’s technology is complimentary to all ingested forms of cannabinoids, the company is positioned to license its intellectual property to clinical-stage biotechnology companies, becoming an enabler – rather than a competitor – that works with other research and development pertaining to cannabinoids.

Collaboration with a company like GW Pharmaceuticals (GWPH), for example, would could yield considerable outcomes. The British company, best known for its multiple sclerosis (MS) cannabinoid product, Sativex, is working feverishly to bring another to market. Currently, its lead cannabinoid product candidate Epidiolex is in phase III clinical trials. This drug is a proprietary oral solution of pure plant-derived cannabidiol (CBD) for the treatment of severe, orphan, early-onset, treatment-resistant epilepsy syndromes including Dravet syndrome, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) and Infantile Spasms (IS).

Also developing treatments for epileptic conditions, with rather less encouraging outcomes than GW Pharmaceuticals, is Zynerba Pharmaceuticals (ZYNE). In August 2017, the company published disappointing results of phase II studies of its cannabidiol (CBD) product, ZYN002, aimed at treating adult epilepsy patients with focal seizures. Since CBD has shown some promise in reducing epileptic seizures, as in the GW Pharmaceutical studies, this raises the possibility that Zynerba’s setback may be due, not to the payload, but the delivery system. ZYN002 employs a transdermal gel that is applied topically on the surface of the skin. However, an oral delivery system, like the one developed by Lexaria, may prove more effective.

Cara Therapeutics (CARA) is another biotech now coming to terms with disappointing clinical trial results. Trials for an oral formulation of its drug candidate CR845, an opioid derivative, studied in osteoarthritis patients, did not turn out so well. However, the study tested patients on low dosages (1.0 mg and 2.5 mg) of CR845 taken orally. Higher oral dosages and CR845 taken intravenously have shown more promising outcomes. The company’s research into opioids has spilled over into cannabinoids. Current preclinical research involves CR701, a cannabinoid receptor agonist, designed to treat chronic pain. The incentive to develop cannabinoid products to treat chronic pain is driven, in part, by the opioid epidemic. While opioid overdose deaths are in the tens of thousands, there appears to be no clearly documented account of anyone dying from an overdose of marijuana.

Smoking marijuana is, of course, one method proven to deliver cannabinoids effectively. Alas, the now well-known deleterious effects on the respiratory system are spurring efforts to develop other delivery mechanisms, such as non-smoke cigarettes, which perhaps is why Philip Morris International (PM) invested $20 million in Israeli startup Syqe Medical. The company manufactures delivery devices for cannabis, like its inhaler. Syqe’s pocket-sized Inhaler delivers precision dosages of its payload: 100 micrograms, every time the device is activated. This overcomes a major barrier to adoption of medical cannabis by doctors: the lack of standardization in dosage regimens. Syqe has tested a similar device in hospitals in a clinical trial that demonstrated its dosing precision superiority to other modes of THC administration. With Philip Morris’ involvement, nicotine may just be next.

As the research into cannabinoids continues to unearth excitingly novel ways to treat a variety of medical conditions, delivery systems are proving to be just an important as payloads. As a result, companies with advanced delivery systems, like Lexaria, are likely to find cannabinoid biotechs beating that proverbial path to their door.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp.’s (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Technology Targets Many Massive Markets

- Technology that improves bio-absorption and bio-availability
- Bioactive compound delivery system with application across a range of drugs
- Revenue streams from out-licensing

The word in culinary circles is that where there is fat, there is flavor. That’s because fats (there are several different kinds) have a matchless ability to absorb and preserve flavors. Fats belong to a class of compounds called lipids, which the human digestive system absorbs remarkably efficiently. This characteristic makes them ideal for pairing with hard to digest remedials and tonics. Taking a leaf, perhaps, from haute cuisine, this is exactly what Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) is doing. The innovative biotech has developed a lipid-based system that delivers bioactive compounds more efficiently. The patented proprietary technology, which the company plans to out-license, not only augments bio-absorption and bioavailability but also improves taste, smell and onset of action.

Lexaria’s novel technology, DehydraTECH™, ticks all these boxes by infusing the molecules of organically sourced hemp oil, high in cannabidiol (CBD), inside the molecules of lipids. Lipids seem a natural choice, since the human endocannabinoid system is itself lipid-based. Using them as a vehicle for delivering cannabinoids in curatives results in more absorption, less waste and, just as importantly, fewer side effects (http://nnw.fm/7Yuym). With DehydraTECH, a little hemp oil goes a long way, improving the healthful benefits and, of course, saving money.

Lexaria has already applied this innovative delivery technology to its product line, which consists of three distinct brands: ViPova, Lexaria Energy and TurboCBD. ViPova is a delicious Chinese black tea from the province of Yunnan, made from hemp oil-infused within dried evaporated non-fat milk. Introduced in January 2015, the tea is available in a host of varieties and flavors. The Lexaria Energy line is meant for those with busy, active lifestyles. Under this brand, the company has launched a hemp oil-infused protein bar called the Lexaria Energy Bar, which, as its name suggests, provides reserves of energy to boost stamina. In addition, there is Lexaria’s TurboCBD, a brand of technologically enhanced, high absorption hemp oil capsules that came to market in March 2017. TurboCBD’s cannabinoid content is fortified with high-quality American ginseng and ginkgo biloba for support of enhanced focus and memory, along with reduced stress and fatigue.

However, as will be apparent, the DehydraTECH process is not restricted to delivering cannabinoids alone. It can be used to improve the delivery of other cannabinoids (apart from CBD) as well as vitamins, non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and nicotine. This puts Lexaria in the enviable position of being a natural partner to cannabinoid biotech companies and an enabler rather than a competitor. Moreover, at present, Lexaria is the only company in the world that has been awarded a patent for the improved delivery (oral or ingestible, including pills) of all non-psychoactive cannabinoids. Patents have been awarded in the U.S. and Australia and are pending in 40 more countries. This puts the company in the unusually advantageous position of owning proprietary technology that can deliver a vast range of non-psychoactive cannabinoid-based drugs.

Lexaria’s partnership potential is worth taking notice of as landmark M&A deals continue to shape Big Pharma (http://nnw.fm/sJ1Qw). Its delivery technology has applications in some giant markets. As the referenced article notes, “According to biotech analysis firm EvaluatePharma, the global market for NSAIDs was valued at $11.4 billion in 2014. Meanwhile, the global market for vitamins is on course to reach $9.3 billion by 2020, the market for alternative nicotine delivery technologies is at an all-time high following recent FDA proposals, and consumer sales of cannabinoids are expected to reach $2.1 billion by 2020. All told, the market potential for Lexaria’s flagship platform could be huge.”

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Tech Discussed at “Cannabis in the Capital Markets” Event

- Clinical studies of TurboCBD™ a topic of discussion at Canadian Securities Exchange-sponsored “Cannabis in the Capital Markets” event
- Patents cover variety of lipophilic bio-actives, including cannabinoids, nicotine and vitamins
- Growing portfolio of intellectual property includes 19 patents filed across 44 countries

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP), through its proprietary technology for delivering bioactive compounds in lipid formulations, offers licensed partners the ability to include cannabidiol (CBD) in a variety of ingestible products appropriate for medical patients and recreational users alike. In a new report, Grand View Research, Inc., states that the global market for medical cannabis alone is expected to reach a stunning $55.8 billion by 2025 (http://nnw.fm/Ou2Xa). An increasing interest in the therapeutic value of cannabinoids, especially those delivered in products that can be ingested and not smoked, is one of the main forces driving the market forward, per the report.

Lexaria’s pioneering TurboCBD ™ product presents a revolutionary way to enhance absorption of the benefits CBD provides without having to endure the often unpleasant flavors associated with cannabis compounds. Lexaria’s technology is patent-protected for cannabidiol (CBD) and all other non-psychoactive cannabinoids, with patents pending for THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and other psychoactive cannabinoids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), nicotine and additional molecules.

Dr. Philip Ainsle of the University of British Columbia (UBC) is the principal investigator of Lexaria’s first clinical study of the high-absorption properties of TurboCBD™. The study will evaluate the effects of TurboCBD™ on the cognitive function and cardiovascular health of human volunteers. Dr. Ainsle, co-director of the Centre for Heart, Lung and Vascular Health at the UBC Okanagan Campus in Kelowna, Canada, presented a project update at the Canadian Securities Exchange-sponsored “Cannabis in the Capital Markets” event on September 27 (http://nnw.fm/9MopZ). Lexaria representatives are also scheduled to speak in October at the Southwest Cannabis Conference and Expo in Phoenix, Arizona.

As a business-to-business enterprise, Lexaria’s reach extends to companies located in Canada, several large market states in the U.S., and internationally. An 18-month co-funded research project is underway with Canada’s National Research Council to investigate opportunities associated with bioavailability enhancement of lipophilic active agents – including those within cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine. Results from this study could provide Lexaria with a chemical or physical “fingerprint” that could help to identify Lexaria’s technology at work in consumer products.

Lexaria’s technology is capable of helping companies lower costs while providing the best consumer benefit possible. Several third-party partners have signed deals, letters of intent or memorandums of understanding to utilize Lexaria’s proprietary technology for both THC and CBD products where allowed by law. Lexaria and its partners are targeting markets in Canada, the U.S., Japan, South Korea, Mexico and more. Lexaria’s royalty revenue model includes a range of between five and 10 percent of gross sales.

As a bioscience technology disruptor for edible cannabinoids, Lexaria has several branded CBD products available, including protein energy bars, CBD tablets that contain zero sugar, premium teas and TurboCBD ™ in a high absorption, full spectrum hemp oil capsule. Led by CEO Chris Bunka, Lexaria’s management team includes professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods and other relevant skill sets.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Bioabsorption Tech Boosting Development of CBD Products

- Technology improves absorption of cannabidiol and bioactive compounds into the bloodstream
- It is now being used on all non-psychoactive cannabinoids and applied to edibles and health food products
- Patents have been awarded in the U.S. and Australia and are pending in 44 countries

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) is a biosciences company that has developed delivery technologies to improve absorption of bioactive compounds. Its patent-protected technology has improved the ability of cannabinoid-products companies to deliver active ingredients to the body. With patents pending for tetrahydrocannabinol and other psychoactive cannabinoids (plus nicotine and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), the current technology is already being applied to the use of non-psychoactive cannabinoids. This innovation has yielded a high absorption hemp oil formula that is a source of omega and fatty acids.

The health benefits of the technology and the products it has enabled are many. Lexaria has developed a product that can reduce anxiety and stress, increase mental focus and boost physiological performance and recovery. It can reduce pain and inflammation as well, while acting as a vasodilator to improve circulation.

Improved bioabsorption and lowering the cost of edibles are not the only perks of LXRP’s technology. The boost to the product market, and to investors, is already being felt. Avoiding the need for inhalation or co-administering CBD with sugars or sweeteners, the technology accelerates intestinal absorption. This has enabled the development of protein energy bars for sports nutrition and chewable CBD tablets with no sugar. Hemp oil capsules in the TurboCBD™ brand (with American ginseng and Ginkgo biloba) and teas have also been developed.

Lexaria’s technology works by masking the taste of cannabinoids as they’re consumed. It also protects the bioactive ingredients as they pass through the stomach and increases bioabsorption in the intestines by 5–10X. This rate is about equal to that of inhalation, offering a viable alternative to smoking. Onset times are also reduced. Effects may be felt with 15–20 minutes, in contrast to up to two hours via other means.

The patent awarded to LXRP for the delivery of all non-psychoactive cannabinoids makes Lexaria the first company in the world to achieve this accomplishment. Awarded in the U.S. and Australia, it is now pending in 44 other countries while supporting research and development on cannabinoids across the industry. The company has filed 19 patent applications in the U.S. and internationally. It also expects additional patent acceptances and issuances in 2017 and over the coming years.

In fact, Lexaria has out-licensed the technology as part of its royalty business model, allowing third-party partners and distributors to profit and support their own developments. The numerous deals already signed include those in various state markets, including California, Colorado and Nevada, and a distribution agreement for CBD chewables in Japan and South Korea. Lexaria’s first royalty agreement was with a fast-growing startup, but current negotiations are with larger, more established enterprises. Lexaria is expanding its global reach and expects to continue seeing growth in business deals in broader industry sectors with more well-known consumer brands.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp.’s (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Oral Digestion Technology Needs No Sugar Coating

- Delivery technology with application to all non-psychoactive cannabinoids
- Company is an enabler rather than competitor to hemp oil producers
- Revenue from licensing DehydraTECH oral digestion technology

Thanks to Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP), there’s no need for a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down. This innovative biotech has developed technology that masks the strong taste and odor of hemp oil products, eschewing the need for artificial sweeteners, which tend to come with their own fallout to heart and health. Lexaria’s DehydraTECH oral digestion technology is a ‘back office’ process that solves the taste and odor issues that confront all hemp oil producers. With the hemp oil market set to grow 38 percent annually for the near future, Lexaria is well positioned to benefit from the expansion as an enabler rather than competitor. The company intends to license its technology to hemp oil producers, whose numbers continue to rise, and has already tightened its grip on the market with a number of patent filings and registrations.

Hemp might be palatable to a troglodyte, but since it ‘tastes like a handful of grass and dirt’, according to the ‘Made by Hemp’ blog (http://nnw.fm/nI3BJ), a modern homo sapien, accustomed to his burger and fries, is unlikely to find it palatable. The obvious solution is to complement the intake of hemp with sugars or sweeteners. However, while sugars occurring naturally in fruits and other foods will usually pose no health problem, processed sugar and artificial sweeteners are quite the opposite. “Refined, concentrated sugar consumed in large amounts rapidly increases blood glucose and insulin levels, increases triglycerides, inflammatory mediators and oxygen radicals, and with them, the risk for diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other chronic illnesses,” according to Harvard Health (http://nnw.fm/LPv6q). Moreover, artificial sweeteners can be addictive. One pre-clinical study worryingly demonstrated that rodents, when given a choice between intravenous cocaine and oral saccharine, mostly chose the saccharine.

The prospects for Lexaria’s DehydraTECH technology are decidedly upbeat. According to this Forbes piece (http://nnw.fm/IrG2T), the hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) market is growing at a steady clip, citing statistics by the Hemp Business Journal that show sales of $90 million in 2015 rising to $450 million by 2020. That 38% CAGR will, undoubtedly, be boosted if and when legalization of recreational cannabis becomes a reality in Canada on July 1, 2018. Lexaria is poised to ride that wave to the crest. At present, the company is in negotiations with major cannabinoid companies to license its technology. The smallest deal with any one of these could increase revenues by over $1 million; the largest could increase them by much, much more, as noted by CEO Chris Bunka in a recent interview (http://nnw.fm/Gp3wY). Since Lexaria is employing a lucrative licensing model that is likely to yield 90-100% of revenues as profit, the bottom line won’t be far below the revenue figure. The company expects to have its first major agreement wrapped up by the end of the year.

Presently, Lexaria is the only company in the world that has been awarded a patent for the improved (oral or ingestible, including pills) delivery of all non-psychoactive cannabinoids. Patents have been awarded in the U.S. and Australia and are pending in 40 more countries. This puts the company in the unusually advantageous position of owning proprietary technology that can deliver a vast range of non-psychoactive cannabinoid-based drugs. Rather than being a competitor to clinical stage biotech companies, Lexaria is an enabler by offering its molecular delivery technology for licensing.

The results are beginning to show. So far in 2017, revenues have exceeded the total for all of 2016. That trend is likely to continue, since Lexaria’s DehydraTECH technology offers oral digestion of hemp oil in a most delightful way.

NetworkNewsBreaks – Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) is Frontrunner in the Delivery of Non-Psychoactive Cannabinoids

Lexaria Biosciences Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP), a biosciences company that has developed delivery technologies to improve absorption of bioactive compounds, has enhanced the ability of cannabinoid-products companies to deliver active ingredients to the body with its patent-protected technology. This technology is already being applied to the use of non-psychoactive cannabinoids, yielding a high-absorption hemp oil formula that is a source of omega and fatty acids, and patents are pending for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other psychoactive cannabinoids along with nicotine and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) to Hold Web-Meeting on November 1

- Web-meeting scheduled for November 1, 2017, at 4:15 p.m. ET
- 19 patents filed encompassing 44 countries
- Patents cover broad range of lipophilic bio-actives including cannabinoids, vitamins and other pharma
- Patented lipophilic delivery system proven to improve bio-absorption

The medical effectiveness of cannabinoids is no longer in question, and the cannabinoid market proliferates ever faster as more people realize the therapeutic benefits. However, the human gastrointestinal tract just doesn’t absorb cannabinoids effectively, and much of what is ingested is subsequently excreted by the body, causing onset times and efficacy to vary wildly.

With 19 patent applications filed internationally covering 44 countries, Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) has already been issued patents in the U.S. and Australia for the delivery of all non-psychoactive cannabinoids, immediately adding value and validation to the underlying science. Lexaria’s technology is a novel drug delivery platform believed to be applicable across a wide range of different drug types and vitamins, as well as cannabinoids. Lexaria’s lipophilic enhancement technology has been proven to increase both absorption and bioavailability of payload molecules, and the applications and implications are immense.

To clearly communicate this opportunity, Lexaria will host a web-meeting on November 1, 2017, at 4:15 p.m. ET. Lexaria will deliver all the latest news, and, as stated in its newsletter, the company is “expecting to have a LOT to talk about – don’t miss this!” The meeting is open to everyone, but pre-registration is required.

REGISTER here for this important event: https://events.genndi.com/register/1691 ... ce8311a9b6

The newsletter also emphasized the fact that Lexaria’s “technology is a delivery platform believed to be applicable to many different types of drugs, vitamins and other substances. It is the applicability of our tech in delivering a substance more efficiently that provides its most substantive value…” To expedite its value proposition, Lexaria has already instructed its attorneys to accelerate examinations of its multiple patent applications wherever possible.

Keeping with strategy, Lexaria is working on several parallel paths toward development of new products and new applications for its technology and seeking new technologies that complement its lipophilic delivery platform. Broad ranging applications will further feed Lexaria’s low-cost, high-margin license and royalty business model of revenue generation. The company’s first licensee is gaining considerable market traction utilizing and paying for its technology, and, with multiple royalty agreements already in the works, Lexaria should easily continue to expand its licensing network. Lexaria has no debt and maintains a healthy cash balance. The company believes it has sufficient cash to follow through with all of the expected R&D and product development, as well as to fund general corporate needs through to the end of 2018.

Lexaria’s novel lipophilic enhancement technology has implications across a wide swath of consumer and pharmaceutical delivery protocols. The global impact of Lexaria’s patented delivery system has barely begun, and it could quickly reverberate to the bottom line.

Bioabsorption Breakthrough Shows Promise for Tobacco, Cannabinoids, Medication

NetworkNewsWire Editorial Coverage: Double 2001 levels, Americans spent over $36 billion on vitamins and nutritional supplements in 2016, contributing to a global dietary supplements market expected to exceed $220 billion by the year 2022 (http://nnw.fm/z8Bh1, http://nnw.fm/qARU7). A noteworthy characteristic of products within this booming sector is bio-absorbability. In order for the body to utilize vitamins and minerals, they must disintegrate and be quickly released. Otherwise, they are simply excreted, rendering them ineffectual. A recent study revealed that over half of encapsulated micronutrients didn’t disintegrate within the time needed for effective absorption (http://nnw.fm/12CAq), demonstrating a sizable underserved need within the multi-billion-dollar industry. Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) (LXRP Profile) has developed and patented a cost-effective lipophilic technology that addresses this issue, serving as a delivery platform for all cannabinoids, fat soluble vitamins, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pain medications (“NSAIDs”), and even nicotine. With proven efficacy for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, Lexaria is positioned to license its technology to tobacco giants such as Philip Morris International, Inc. (NYSE: PM) and British American Tobacco PLC (NYSE: BTI), as well as cannabinoid biopharmaceutical companies like GW Pharmaceuticals PLC (NASDAQ: GWPH) and major drug companies such as Pfizer, Inc. (PFE).

Adding to its portfolio of 19 international patent applications filed encompassing 44 countries, Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) earlier this week announced that it has received from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) a new Notice of Allowance that applies to the delivery of all applied-for active pharmacological ingredients (“APIs”). As was the case with Lexaria’s existing non-psychoactive cannabinoid patent, the company expects formal patent issuance within three to four months, which is expected to provide protection until at least 2035.

The issuance of the patent will enable Lexaria to accelerate its technology out-licensing activities in several key markets. The irony is that this R&D that originated in the cannabis is now finding use in delivery of NSAIDs, vitamins and even nicotine.

“This wide-ranging patent allowance from the USPTO exceeds our expectations. This vastly expanded intellectual property protection will enable us to aggressively pursue new business opportunities in 2018 such as what could be the world’s first nicotine edibles for the smokeless tobacco industry, or enhanced products for NSAID-derived pain management, as well as in the rapidly growing cannabis market,” Lexaria CEO Chris Bunka stated in the press release announcing the news (http://nnw.fm/2iPIn).

According to the CDC, 36.5 million adults in the U.S. currently smoke tobacco, while 16 million live with a smoking-related disease. The U.S. FDA earlier this year submitted a proposal to reduce nicotine levels in cigarettes to non-addictive levels in an effort to significantly reduce the effects of tobacco-related diseases. As such, leading tobacco companies are pursuing marketable alternatives to their combustible offerings, and Lexaria is uniquely positioned to capture a share of this mammoth market with technology allows that for the infusion of nicotine molecules within a wide range of edible food ingredients or capsules.

Notably, current forms of nicotine delivery have mostly failed. The development of readily absorbed nicotine-infused edible products could create smoke-free cigarette alternatives and greatly improve upon the success of inhalation smoking cessation programs. The expected FDA action makes tobacco giant Philip Morris International Inc. (PM), which manufactures and sells cigarettes and other tobacco products globally, a potential licensee for edible, absorbable nicotine replacement therapeutics.

Another potential tobacco company beneficiary of Lexaria’s technology is British American Tobacco PLC (BTI), which has invested more than $1 billion in building its “Next Generation Products” business, an assortment of alternative tobacco and nicotine products aimed at reducing the risks associated with smoking conventional cigarettes. Looking to the future, BTI was among the first international tobacco companies to launch an e-cigarette product in the UK. Touted as a tobacco alternative, electronic cigarettes still rely on inhalation for nicotine delivery, and the long-term health risk associated with e-cigarettes remains in question. Bio-absorbable nicotine could provide much safer and less expensive molecule delivery.

Lexaria’s potential in this market is best understood by examining the application of the company’s technology to cannabinoids, as well as its licensing strategy.

Medical cannabinoids have demonstrated therapeutic efficacy for a variety of diseases and ailments; however, the human gastrointestinal tract doesn’t absorb cannabinoids easily, causing wide deviation in onset times and effectiveness. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. The key differentiator between Lexaria’s technology and older tech on the market is its ability to enhance the absorption of orally-ingested cannabinoids while improving the “unusual” taste and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Furthermore, Lexaria’s lipophilic enhancement technology increases the bio-absorption of cannabinoid edibles to between five and ten times that of inhalation and reduces onset times by roughly 75% due to rapid bio-absorption and potential liver bypass.

In what will only be strengthened by issuance of the aforenoted patent, Lexaria uses a low-cost, high-margin license and royalty model of revenue generation. Since its technology is complimentary to all ingested forms of cannabinoids and potentially multiple other ingestible products, the company is positioned to license its intellectual property to biopharmaceutical companies as a partner rather than a competitor. In short, the enhanced technology provides an additional layer of effectiveness designed to harmonize with the intellectual property of third parties, such as GW Pharmaceuticals PLC (NASDAQ: GWPH), as they deliver best-in-class products to their existing large consumer groups.

GW Pharmaceuticals is the world’s largest cannabinoid pharmaceutical company. Recognized for its multiple sclerosis (MS) cannabinoid product, Sativex, GW Pharmaceuticals is developing and commercializing multiple therapeutics from its cannabinoid product platform across a range of disease areas. The company’s lead cannabinoid product candidate, Epidiolex, a liquid formulation of pure plant-derived cannabidiol (CBD), is in phase III clinical trials for the treatment of severe treatment-resistant epilepsy syndromes. Preliminary results from the trials have produced encouraging results and, if approved, could bring in blockbuster sales.

Beyond the cannabinoid sector, Lexaria sees considerable potential in applying its delivery technology to many other consumer products, including NSAIDs like Advil. More than 70 million prescriptions and more than 30 billion over-the counter tablets of NSAIDs are sold annually in the United States alone. While NSAIDs are effective in relieving pain, fever and inflammation, they can cause unwanted and sometimes dangerous side effects. Given a timely and predictable delivery system, biopharmaceutical giant Pfizer (NYSE: PFE), the maker of Advil, could easily find multiple applications for Lexaria’s technology throughout its global portfolio of medicines, vaccines and consumer health care products.

Lexaria is gaining considerable market traction with its expanding patent portfolio, leveraging a unique technology that positions the company as a potential partner to some of today’s leading consumer brands. Building on this opportunity, Lexaria continues to explore additional technologies that could deliver value to its growing portfolio of patented technologies which now has to be considered one of the broadest in the industry.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Supplements Popular Beverage with Legal CBD

- Unique patented drug delivery platform
- Active in world’s largest beverage market
- Technology that compliments rather than competes with CBD companies

An old and popular beverage is being supplemented in a healthy, flavorful way now that Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) is on the scene. Having increased its ownership stake in PoViva Tea, LLC from 51% to 100%, the innovative drug delivery biotech plans to apply its patented DehydraTECH™ technology to supplement a range of black teas with cannabidiol (CBD) from hemp. After water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world and is an ideal adjuvant to speed adoption of CBD supplements. Now that it is complementing the recognized virtues of tea with the therapeutic benefits of CBD, Lexaria is poised to revolutionize the age-old ritual of afternoon tea.

America is a nation of tea drinkers. In 2016, Americans drank 84 billion cups of tea; that is 260 cups for every man, woman and child. Of the 3.8 billion gallons thus consumed, about 80% was black tea, 16% was green tea, while the rest was either Oolong, white or dark tea. Unlike the rest of the world, Americans like their tea cold. About 80 percent of the tea consumed on a daily basis is chilled. However, hot tea appears to be gaining in popularity with the health conscious. The Tea Association of the USA reports (http://nnw.fm/t7Rn7) that ‘total category sales for hot tea have increased more than 15% over the last 5 years…’ The Association ‘anticipates strong, continuous growth, with a CAGR of 4-6% (coming) from all segments driven by variety, convenience, health benefits, sustainability, availability, continued innovation and the discovery of unique, flavorful and high-end specialty teas’.

Lexaria’s acquisition of Poviva Tea, LLC, announced on November 2 (http://nnw.fm/CQpn9), gives Lexaria a toehold in this vast $7 billion plus market and consolidates ownership of Poviva Tea, LLC as a wholly owned Lexaria Bioscience subsidiary. The move also simplifies future operations and certain intellectual property ownership issues. In addition, Lexaria announced that, effectively immediately, PoViva Tea will now operate with the trade name of ViPovaTM Tea. The company believes that the rebranding will ensure long-term protection of intellectual rights. At the center of this strategy is Lexaria’s patented DehydraTECH technology, which is focused on the improving the delivery of many commonly used Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs). The DehydraTECH technology provides an additional layer of effectiveness, designed to harmonize with the intellectual property of third parties, which both patented and generic API substances can employ. Lexaria’s long term strategy is to partner with the world’s leading firms as they deliver best-of-class products to their existing large consumer groups.

Lexaria is constantly exploring ways to make the health benefits of cannabinoids (CBD) more accessible and the company’s DehydraTECH technology is a way to do so. Many hemp products on the market are simply mixtures of hemp oil with other ingredients. However, Lexaria’s patented methodology infuses organically sourced hemp oil into the molecules of other substances, such as lipids, which, as it turns out, form the basis of the human endocannabinoid system. Consequently, the body better absorbs products employing the technology.

Presently, Lexaria is the only company in the world that has been awarded a patent for the improved (oral or ingestible, including pills) delivery of all non-psychoactive cannabinoids. Patents have been awarded in the U.S. and Australia and are pending in 40 more countries. This puts the company in the unusually advantageous position of owning proprietary technology that can deliver a vast range of non-psychoactive cannabinoid-based drugs.

Lexaria is already applying its innovative delivery technology to the range of ViPova black teas, which come from the province of Yunnan in China and are supplemented with hemp oil infused within dried evaporated non-fat milk. Introduced in January 2015, the tea is available in a variety of varieties and flavors. The ViPova range runs from 8 to 32 bag portions and varieties include Decaf English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Herbal Bengal Chai, Herbal Cherry Black Tea, Herbal Masala Chai, Low-Caf Organic Evening Green Tea and ViPova Light.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Boosts Revenue by Out-Licensing Patented Technology to Third-Party Partners

- High-margin licensing royalties of 5-10% of gross sales of its patented bioscience technology and process are an attractive valuation builder; LXRP sees more licensing opportunities in 2018
- LXRP’s technology is patented in the U.S. and Australia; company has national/regional filings pending in 44 countries

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQB: LXRP) (CSE: LXX) generates revenue by out-licensing its patented global technology related to ingestion of edible cannabinoids at a rate of 5-10% of gross sales to its third-party partners. LXRP has also expanded its process of improved and faster inhalation by the body of fat-soluble vitamins, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in pain medications, and even nicotine, a good example of bioabsorption breakthrough technology (http://nnw.fm/GhD5A). LXRP is now positioned to license its technology to tobacco giants and major drug companies, as well as cannabinoid biopharmaceutical companies.

As a result, LXRP sees new business opportunities in 2018. The company is now positioned to out-license — at a high royalty rate — its intellectual property (IP) to biopharmaceutical companies as a partner rather than a competitor, working with other companies, including cannabinoid edible producers, instead of competing with them.

An R&D-driven company, LXRP is disrupting the global industry by specializing in the ingestion of edible forms of cannabinoids. Its technology and process platform offers more rapid forms of delivery and intestinal absorption of orally-taken cannabinoids, vitamins, nicotine and non-steroidal inflammatory drugs. Its patented process not only improves the body’s absorption of edible cannabinoids; it also masks taste, reduces by roughly 75% the time of onset, and increases bio-absorption by 5-10x. The company has secured patents related to its processing technology in the U.S. and Australia, and it has a portfolio of some 19 national/regional patent application filings in some 44 countries (http://nnw.fm/n4NqG).

Primarily a B2B company, LXRP also makes for demonstration purposes branded consumer products under the ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™ brands. It recently acquired the remaining 49% of its majority owned Poviva Tea LLC subsidiary (http://nnw.fm/Mow3Z). It now owns 100% ownership interest, reaffirming its commitment to the ViPova product lines, as noted by the company in a recent news release.

Separately, in financial news, LXRP has extended the date of its warrants issued on January 19, 2017, to expire on January 19, 2019. The exercise price and the quantity of the warrants has not changed, it said in a 8K SEC filing. LXRP, in its corporate presentation, said that the next round of capital investment is expected to be in “plant to bloodstream” companies, such as itself.
