Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP)

Postby QualityStocks » Wed Jul 12, 2017 11:13 am

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body’s gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.

The key differentiator between Lexaria’s products and others on the market is the company’s disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the “unusual” taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™.

In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company’s technological process and lipid formulation both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria’s processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.

Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government’s National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria’s unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.

Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company’s patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria’s lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world’s most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.

Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets.

Lexaria Bioscience’s (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Patented Cannabinoid Delivery System Approved

- Patented lipophilic delivery system increases bio-absorption
- Patents cover broad range of lipophilic bio-actives, including cannabinoids, vitamins, other pharma
- 19 patents filed across 44 countries
- First international patent issued and approved in Australia

Any argument over the efficacy of medicinal marijuana is settled science. Recent prestigious clinical studies have provided conclusive evidence that medical cannabinoids are effective medicine for a variety of diseases and ailments (http://nnw.fm/7HnBi). However, the human gastrointestinal tract just doesn’t absorb cannabinoids effectively, and much of what is ingested is simply excreted by the body. Subsequently, onset times and effectiveness vary wildly.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) has patented and licenses a novel delivery system which infuses organically sourced hemp oil into the molecules of other substances. The system utilizes lipids, which form the basis of the human endocannabinoid system, increasing both absorption and bioavailability of payload molecules. Lexaria’s lipophilic enhancement technology increases the bio-absorption of cannabinoid edibles by five to 10 times, to roughly equal that of inhalation. The onset times for effectiveness are also reduced by about 75 percent due to rapid bio-absorption by bypassing first-pass liver metabolism. Not only does Lexaria’s methodology dramatically increase effectiveness; it also masks the taste of cannabinoids and eliminates the need for sugar additives.

Lexaria currently has 19 patent applications filed in the U.S. and internationally covering 44 countries. The patents encompass a broad range of lipophilic bio-actives including NSAIDs and Nicotine, as well as food/carrier that can be formulated and delivered using Lexaria’s technology. With U.S. patents already issued, the company announced just last week that its first international patent was accepted and issued in Australia (http://nnw.fm/4h0oA). This development opens the door for Lexaria to bring the Australian cannabinoid edibles market under its umbrella.

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

Lexaria employs a low-cost, high-margin license and royalty model of revenue generation. By out-licensing to third party partners, the company keeps five to 10 percent of each partner’s gross sales. With multiple royalty agreements already in the works, the company will continue to expand its licensing network as it receives patent approvals. Interestingly, Lexaria’s novel technology has implications across a wide swath of consumer and pharmaceutical delivery protocols. The global impact of Lexaria’s patents and business model will easily reverberate to the bottom line and has only just begun.

Biotech Players Lead the Growth Charge in the Legal Cannabis Market

NetworkNewsWire Editorial Coverage: The backbone of medical advancement is biotechnology, an industry wrought with the incredible potential of novel drug R&D, but vulnerable to the risk of stringent regulatory approval processes. Within this volatile market, however, is the cannabis-biotech sub-sector – a market flourishing with opportunity, innovation, and deep roots of medical possibilities. Fueled by an increasing volume of supportive research, cannabis-based biotech companies are addressing large markets of unmet medical need while rising to meet global demand of epic proportion. Included among several companies in the cannabis-biotech sub-sector is Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQB: LXRP) (CSE: LXX) (LXRP Profile), a company emerging as a recognizable name within a space occupied by companies like GW Pharmaceuticals PLC (NASDAQ: GWPH), Zynerba Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZYNE), Insys Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: INSY) and Axim Biotechnologies Inc. (OTCQB: AXIM).

Because the cannabis-biotech sub-sector remains in relative infancy, it is full of uncharted territory and prospects as companies aggressively explore the medicinal potential of marijuana and the plant’s compounds and applications. Food bioscience company Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQB: LXRP) (CSE: LXX), for instance, enjoys a unique position in this sub-sector. As the only publicly traded company with a cannabis-based intellectual portfolio that includes NSAIDs, nicotine and vitamins, Lexaria has multiple patents pending in over 40 countries, and it recently received its first patents in the U.S. and Australia relating to edible forms of cannabinoids (http://nnw.fm/e8LvY).

At the center of these patents is the company’s proprietary technology, which improves the delivery of bioactive compounds, primarily cannabinoids, into the human body. While cannabinoids tout great potential for medical treatment, the compounds are poorly absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract. As a result, users frequently turn to alternative administration methods, like smoking, for enhanced effectiveness. Lexaria’s lipophilic enhancement technology, however, demonstrates the ability to boost bioavailability of orally-ingested cannabinoids while at the same time masking their “unusual” taste. This technology is patent-protected for cannabidiol (CBD) and all other non-psychoactive cannabinoids. Other patents are also pending for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), other psychoactive cannabinoids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), nicotine and other molecules.

In collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada (“NRC”) (http://nnw.fm/fdG8Z), Lexaria has commenced lab work to study and optimize the application of its technology toward enabling the delivery of lipophilic active agents within foods, beverages, capsules and other ingestible formats. Practical applications of this collaboration could include expansion of Lexaria’s IP portfolio and the possibility of new commercial arrangements. Lexaria currently has two distinct consumer brands that utilize this game-changing technology of infusing hemp oil inside the lipids in foods: ViPova™ and Lexaria Energy.

Introduced in 2015, the ViPova product line began with a Chinese black tea containing hemp oil infused into dried, evaporated nonfat milk. The following year, Lexaria took advantage of the broader beverage market, and ViPova’s product line was expanded to include coffee and hot chocolate. The company sells its ViPova product directly online to consumers.

Lexaria Energy products also utilize the company’s patented infusion technology to deliver federally legal hemp oil ingredients inside nutritious and tasty formulations that are free of the bitter taste typically associated with hemp. Products in this line include the Lexaria Energy Bar, a hemp oil-infused protein bar. Other nutritious products are in development for the Lexaria Energy line, with a focus on ensuring responsible production techniques and gluten-free formulations.

Lexaria also licenses its technology to third-party partners, making royalties an integral part of its overall business strategy and revenue potential as it pursues opportunities to broaden and strengthen its IP portfolio. Because Lexaria’s technology relies on a delivery methodology – and not just a single drug or molecule – even cannabis giants like GW Pharmaceuticals PLC (GWPH) might discover Lexaria’s technology as an effective way to deliver its drug.

GW Pharmaceuticals has become a world leader in developing plant-derived cannabinoid therapeutics by leveraging its established drug discovery and development processes, extensive intellectual property portfolio, and regulatory and manufacturing expertise. The company’s research delves into the potential therapeutic applications of cannabinoids, and GW has evaluated the pharmacology of various cannabinoids across a broad array of disease areas. GW’s focus is chiefly on central nervous system disorders, including epilepsy. The company’s lead product candidate, Epidiolex, is a liquid formulation of pure plant-derived CBD and is in development to treat various rare childhood-onset epilepsy disorders. GW has also commercialized Sativex, the world’s very first plant-derived cannabinoid prescription drug, which has been approved in 29 countries outside the U.S. for the treatment of multiple sclerosis-related spasticity. GW’s pipeline of other cannabinoid product candidates includes compounds in development for treating epilepsy, glioma and schizophrenia.

Another biotech standout in the cannabis market is clinical-stage pharmaceutical company Zynerba Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ZYNE). Zynerba is focused on the development of innovative transdermal synthetic cannabinoid treatment options for patients with high unmet medical needs. The company’s development pipeline includes two lead product candidates that are being evaluated in five therapeutic indications: ZYN002 and ZYN001. Currently in phase 2 clinical development for refractory epilepsy, osteoarthritis of the knee and Fragile X syndrome, ZYN002 is the first and only synthetic form of CBD and has been formulated as a patent-protected permeation-enhanced gel for transdermal delivery into the circulatory system. ZYN001 is a THC pro-drug that enables transdermal delivery through the skin and into the circulatory system via a patch. A phase 1 clinical program for fibromyalgia and peripheral neuropathic pain was initiated by Zynerba in the first half of 2017.

Specialty pharmaceutical company Insys Therapeutics, Inc. (INSY) is focused on developing and commercializing innovative drugs and novel drug delivery systems for therapeutic molecules with the end goal of improving quality of life for patients. Insys uses proprietary sublingual spray technology along with its pharmaceutical cannabinoid development capabilities to address the clinical inadequacies of existing commercial products. In May 2017, Insys Therapeutics received FDA approval for the final product label of its Syndros (dronabinol) oral solution, marking the last regulatory step needed before the official launch of the product, which is planned to take place sometime in August 2017. Syndros is a liquid formulation of the pharmaceutical cannabinoid dronabinol and has been approved for use in the treatment of weight loss-related anorexia in AIDS patients and nausea and vomiting in chemotherapy patients who are unresponsive to conventional antiemetic treatments. Insys is additionally at the phase 2 clinical development stage for a cannabidiol treatment to address severe pediatric epilepsies.

Biotechnology company Axim Biotechnologies Inc. (OTCQB: AXIM) is a leader in cannabinoid R&D and is striving to set the green standard for cannabinoid bioscience. The company’s most advanced program is its phase 2 clinical trial of CanChew Plus chewing gum to treat irritable bowel syndrome. The company is similarly using a chewing gum-based approach for the treatment of pain, multiple sclerosis spasticity and other indications. CanChew Gum is the world’s first patented, functional chewing gum that is derived from CBD-rich industrial hemp, and it is legal in all 50 states. Axim is additionally conducting research into the use of molecularly-modified cannabinoids as neuroprotectants, as well as the use of industrial hemp-derived formulations of cannabigerol (CBG) for dermatological applications. AXIM is further conducting trials or has products in development targeting a large number of indications, including ADHD, smoking cessation, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, drug-related psychosis, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and more. The company is also in the process of developing a unique extraction and freeze-drying technology for producing molecularly/genetically-controlled pharma-grade cannabinoids extracted from industrial hemp.

For biotech investors looking at the legal cannabis sector and interested in potentially taking part of the growth in the broader marijuana industry, the companies described above are all worth keeping on your investment radar. Stay tuned to NetworkNewsWire for more public information on investment opportunities and on Lexaria Bioscience.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Technology Set to Benefit as Study Shows More Benefits of Cannabidiol

- Cannabidiol (CBD) combats anxiety, inflammation, nausea and vomiting
- Low side-effect profile means high doses of cannabidiol can be used for treatment of schizophrenia, dementia, diabetes and nausea
- Lower doses promote and maintain health with anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects
- Lexaria Bioscience Corp. set to benefit from increasing interest in CBD as patented technology improves taste, rapidity and effectiveness of bioactive compounds including cannabinoids

A new scientific review of the safety and side effects of cannabidiol confirms and expands on the myriad known health benefits of cannabidiol and the compound’s lack of side effects.

The review, titled “An Update on Safety and Side Effects of Cannabidiol: A Review of Clinical Data and Relevant Animal Studies,” was published in the journal Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research in June. To view the full publication, visit: http://nnw.fm/cbd-clinical-overview-pdf.

Cannabidiol has a number of beneficial effects, the study states; it is anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic, antiemetic and antipsychotic. This can only increase the demand for cannabidiol (CBD) products and is good news for Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP). Lexaria has patented a revolutionary lipophilic delivery method which allows accurate, timely delivery of cannabinoids without the need for users to smoke, vape or otherwise inhale the substance.

Lexaria out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, increased speed and efficiency in the delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. The special manufacturing process infuses CBD within lipids, which form the basis of the human endocannabinoid system. Lexaria Bioscience’s new process masks the undesirable taste of cannabidiol, which eliminates the need for added sugar and results in a healthier product.

The review’s authors, Iffland Kerstin and Grotenhermen Franjo, concluded that along with the beneficial effects, the safety profile of CBD is excellent. Chronic use and high doses of up to 1,500 mg per day have repeatedly shown to be well tolerated. Cannabidiol does not alter physiological parameters such as heart rate and blood pressure and does not adversely affect psychological and psychomotor functions, food intake or gastrointestinal transit.

The study’s authors reviewed clinical data and animal studies to extend and update a comprehensive survey by Bergamaschi et al. in 2011 on CBD safety and side effects; they concluded that CBD has a much better side effect profile than other drugs used for the treatment of epilepsy and psychotic disorders.

Several studies have shown cannabidiol to be effective in the treatment of epilepsy. In one study, CBD treatment reduced seizures by 45% in 261 young children who were not receiving relief from standard medications. In another study, CBD reduced the frequency of seizures by 39% in therapy-resistant epilepsy patients.

Cannabidiol has also been shown to have anti-anxiety effects equivalent to a standard dose of imipramine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor sold as Tofranil and commonly used to treat anxiety and depression.

Studies have found that CBD reduces inflammation in the gastrointestinal system, treats symptoms of multiple sclerosis and helps with the management of glaucoma.

According to the study review, cannabidiol has also been shown to:

- help with cannabis withdrawal
- reduce heroin-seeking behaviors
- reduce psychotic symptoms in Parkinson’s patients
- reduce the likelihood of developing diabetes
- positively modulate the immune system in diseases such as multiple sclerosis, arthritis and diabetes
- reduce amyloid beta neuro-inflammation and prevent the development of a social recognition deficit in Alzheimer’s disease.
- reduce swelling and inflammation in arthritis
- prevent or slow the spread of certain types of aggressive cancer cells
- reduce weight gain
- reduce symptoms of psychiatric disorders such as psychosis and bipolar disorder

Cannabidiol is not the only substance which can be formulated and delivered via Lexaria’s revolutionary delivery method; the patented technology can be used for delivery of nicotine, vitamins, analgesics and a variety of other substances. Tests by an independent, third-party lab show that Lexaria’s technological process and lipid formulation improve intestinal absorption by as much as 500%.

Patents have been issued to the company in the U.S. and Australia protecting Lexaria’s intellectual property for the edible delivery of all non-psychoactive cannabinoids, including cannabinoid edibles. A variety of food and beverage formats are protected by the patent, including tea, coffee, cocoa powder, fresh foods and meats, dairy products, pastas, breads, seeds, nuts, spices, herbs, candies, flavorings and more.

Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and it is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the U.S., and abroad.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Sees New Round of Investors Attracted to Cannabis Market

- Has patents in the United States and Australia and patents pending in more than 40 countries for proprietary technology easing how edible cannabinoids enter body
- Revenue stream comes from own products and 5-10% margin of gross sales from licensing technology to third parties
- Signed C$250,000 joint venture agreement with National Research Council (NRC) in Canada to research and find best methods for processing active agents in foods

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) already owns international patents for its proprietary intellectual property and has more global patents pending in the cannabis marketplace. It believes that the sub-sector of bioscience technology for edible CBDs will expand. It expects a new round of investors will be attracted to “plant-to-bloodstream” companies. Initially, it said, investors funded “seed-to-plant” companies.

The Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada-based food bioscience company is a technology disruptor for edible CBDs. It markets a high absorption hemp oil formula, protein energy bars, exotic teas and high absorption hemp oil capsules to help the human body absorb CBDs. In its June 2017 corporate presentation for investors (http://nnw.fm/t8NXO), Lexaria Bioscience noted that its focus is on researching and developing additional products for the edible cannabinoids market. It owns international patent rights and has pending patents for its technology changing the way cannabinoids enter the body.

This sub-sector is in its relative infancy as companies seeks to learn more about the medicinal potential for medical marijuana. Lexaria Bioscience is the only publicly traded company which has intellectual property in this sub-sector, covering non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), nicotine and vitamins, according to a July 2017 market research report titled, “Biotech Players Lead the Growth Charge in the Legal Cannabis Market” (http://nnw.fm/lpeU8). The company has received for its proprietary technology its first patents in the United States and Australia and has patents pending in more than 40 countries globally.

Lexaria’s technology aims to improve the human body’s absorption of CBDs in the gastrointestinal tract. The process is effective, not just for CBDs, but also for other non-psychoactive cannabinoids. Patents are pending, too, for NSAIDs, nicotine and other molecules, per the research report.

By masking the bitter taste, reducing ingestion time and improving bio-absorption of CBD products, Lexaria Bioscience enjoys revenue streams from its own product line brands, such as Turbo CBD™, ViPova™, and Lexaria Energy Foods, as well as from licensing to third party partners at a 5-10% margin of gross sales.

Lexaria Bioscience has also just signed a C$250,000 collaborative research agreement with the National Research Council (NRC) of Canada for an 18-month term to investigate opportunities to evaluate and determine the best methods for processing lipophilic active agents within foods. The research will also study cannabinoids such as THC, vitamins, nicotine and NSAIDs. The result could be isolating a chemical or physical “fingerprint” identification to study Lexaria’s technology in consumer products, the company’s investor presentation said.

Lexaria Bioscience’s (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Technology Offers More Potent Delivery of Cannabinoids

- Technology that improves bioavailability of orally ingested cannabinoids
- Safer approach that mitigates risks from carcinogens
- Generates revenue by out-licensing its technology internationally

Announcement of a new government initiative to reduce the level of nicotine in cigarettes to nonaddictive levels is good news for Lexaria Bioscience (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP). Less addictive cigarettes mean less dependence on smoking as a delivery system, not only for nicotine but other substances like cannabinoids, which is why the folks at Lexaria are cheering the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on. This innovative bioscience company has developed technology that offers a safer and more efficient delivery system for bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids.

The idea of reducing nicotine levels has been knocking around for a while. Writing in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1994, Dr. Neal Benowitz, a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, proposed the idea, according to Scientific American (http://nnw.fm/3am8E). Lower levels of nicotine might make smoking less of a habit and so reduce the toll of the many carcinogens (cancer-causing agents) found in tobacco smoke. Less nicotine would also reduce the risks associated with nicotine itself. The substance is highly addictive, and heavy long-term use may damage arteries, increasing the risk of stroke. Nevertheless, the dangers posed by its use pale in comparison to those caused by the arsenic, benzene, lead and other carcinogens that permeate tobacco smoke.

In 1994, though, the FDA did not have the authority to set nicotine levels for cigarettes. That changed after the passage of the Tobacco Control Act in 2009, which gave the agency power to reduce, but not eliminate altogether, the amount of nicotine in cigarettes. Now, the FDA is exercising its mandate. Its new commissioner, Scott Gottlieb, believes that by making smoking less addictive, more Americans will buck the habit and avoid the peril of developing cancer. In addition, reduced nicotine levels in cigarettes may ultimately cause a divorce from smoking. After all, there are a variety of alternative ways to ingest nicotine, including vaping and chewing gum.

If the smokescreen is removed from cigarettes, they will be seen for what they are: simply, a hazardous delivery system for nicotine, albeit an effective one, no doubt. And for those who must have their nicotine, there are much safer ways to get it, an argument that applies equally well to cannabinoids. Lexaria has proprietary technology for improved delivery of bioactive compounds, which offers a no-smoking safer way to administer cannabinoids.

The company’s lipophilic enhancement technology has been shown to enhance the bioavailability of orally ingested cannabinoids, a decided advantage, since cannabinoids are not absorbed very well by the body’s gastrointestinal tract. The Lexaria process improves bio-absorption of cannabinoids to levels that equal smoking, and onset has been reported as occurring within 15-20 minutes, as opposed to 60-120 minutes for edibles. The company’s technology is patent-protected for cannabidiol (CBD) and all other non-psychoactive cannabinoids, and patent-pending for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), other psychoactive cannabinoids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and nicotine.

The Lexaria technology, which also improves taste, has the potential to improve the absorption and potency of a variety of medical products, including vitamins and analgesics. The company plans to generate revenue by out-licensing its technology internationally.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Praised in Technical420 Article

- Lexaria Bioscience Corp. featured in a Technical420 article praising the company’s recent developments
- Lexaria is improving and strengthening patent portfolio; 19 patent applications are pending in more than 40 countries
- Company executes partnership with NeutriSci International; joint venture allows LXRP to enter Asian market

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP), an innovative company licensing proprietary technology for the delivery of bioactive compounds including cannabinoids, is a “plant-to-bloodstream” company expected to draw investors in the cannabis marketplace. Lexaria has patented and licenses a novel delivery system that infuses organically sourced hemp oil into the molecules of other substances.

Cannabidiol, noted for its anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic, antiemetic and antipsychotic effects, is just one of several compounds targeted by Lexaria for its unique oral ingestion technology, which allows more efficient delivery of bioactive substances via oral ingestion without the need for unhealthy inhalation or the addition of sweeteners commonly used to mask bitter tastes. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), nicotine and vitamins are among the substances targeted by Lexaria’s new delivery method.

A recent article in Technical420 (http://nnw.fm/0IT6s), a provider of research and analysis of cannabis stocks, praised the company for several positive developments over the past few months.

Lexaria has 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries worldwide. The company strengthened its intellectual property portfolio with its first U.S. patent, issued in October 2016. The patent protects Lexaria’s intellectual property for infusion of cannabinoid compounds in edible products. Lexaria’s unique process improves the taste and bioavailability of cannabinoid food ingredients.

Another strong development is Lexaria’s joint venture with NeutriSci International (TSX.V: NU), a Canadian public company, to produce and sell a line of healthy edible cannabinoid products. The two companies will produce a line of cannabinoid mouth-melt products using Lexaria’s technology and NeutriSci’s proprietary pterostilbene tablet. Pterostilbene is an antioxidant that’s chemically similar to Resveratrol – a natural compound found primarily in blueberries and Pterocarpus marsupium heartwood, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine (http://nnw.fm/Euz95).

The joint venture will operate as Ambarii Trade Corporations, and initial operations will be funded equally by Lexaria and NeutriSci. AMbarii’s plans include securing licensees in Canada, California and Colorado to produce mouth-melt products containing THC.

Lexaria is also venturing into the Asian market, as noted by the Technical420 article. Ambarii has entered into an LOI with Naturally Splendid Enterprises Ltd. (TSX.V: NSP) for production and distribution of the company’s sublingual full spectrum cannabidiol tablets in Japan and South Korea. With a population of 127 million, Japan is one of the world’s largest markets, and hemp oil containing cannabidiol is already legal in Japan. South Korea, with a population of 50 million, is expected to open its markets to hemp oil-sourced cannabidiol soon.

Lexaria will begin in vitro absorption studies to quantify improvements in absorption in human intestinal tissue and will conduct animal studies on whole-body reactions to the rapid and efficient delivery of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine. Edible nicotine products could allow a healthier alternative to smoking, patches and nicotine gum. The article points out that the company’s R&D budget is fully funded from existing capital.

Lexaria has an improved cash position and an attractive valuation, the Technical420 article states, due to improved balance sheets and a much smaller warrant overhang. The company raised more than $1.7 million in April, and, from November 2016 through May 2017, the company raised more than $4 million in equity. Technical420 is “favorable” on these developments and expects to see significant advancement by Lexaria Bioscience.

Regulation Forcing Drug and Cigarette Companies to Be More Responsible is Great News for Lexaria (LXRP), says CEO

In an interview with Stock Day, CEO Chris Bunka of Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) discussed the company’s recent achievements and its plans for the near future. Revenues are climbing, exceeding, so far in 2017, the total for all of 2016, and the potential for further increases is imminent. The company is in negotiation with at least four large pharmaceutical companies to license its technology. The smallest of these could increase revenues by $1 million; the largest could increase revenues by much, much more, according to Bunka. Getting any of these deals signed will boost the bottom line almost as much as they would raise revenues. Lexaria will be employing a lucrative licensing model that is likely to yield 90-100% of revenues as profit. The company expects to have its first major agreement wrapped up by the end of the year.

Apart from attracting the attention of big pharma, Lexaria has been working with the National Research Council (NRC) of Canada, an agency of the Canadian federal government, to explore the effects of its technology. The company has developed technology that allows non-psychoactive cannabinoids, vitamins, non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and nicotine to be absorbed at much higher rates. Lexaria’s superior delivery system offers the promise of potentially reducing required doses of these substances, since less of them goes to waste. The technology also speeds up delivery. It can deliver payload molecules to the bloodstream in 15-25 minutes, as opposed to 60-90 minutes for current methods, and is already in use in a number of consumer products.

Lexaria recently raised $4 million in capital. The company intends to spend part of the proceeds in setting up an R&D program for nicotine. The initiative comes at an opportune time. In August, the FDA announced “a new comprehensive plan for tobacco and nicotine regulation that will serve as a multi-year roadmap to better protect kids and significantly reduce tobacco-related disease and death” (http://nnw.fm/hLdm6). The agency plans to stimulate public dialogue on lowering nicotine levels in combustible cigarettes to non-addictive levels. This is good news for Lexaria, which is hoping its technology can provide a delivery method for nicotine that is safer than smoking. As its CEO has remarked, “Regulation is great news for Lexaria.”

The interview can be heard at http://nnw.fm/9QqQ8

FDA Proposal Puts Spotlight on Big Tobacco and Industry Innovators

NetworkNewsWire Coverage: The black cloud over Big Tobacco has been swirling for decades, but few developments have cast a bigger shadow than the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recent proposal to reduce nicotine levels in cigarettes to non-addictive levels. The new plan1, originally unveiled on July 28, is expected to serve as a multi-year roadmap aimed at saving lives and significantly reducing the effects of tobacco-related diseases. The market effects of the nicotine push have proven to be colossal, with shares of two of the largest sellers of cigarettes in the United States suffering their largest single-day plunge since the recession following the announcement. Indeed, the FDA’s sweeping efforts seem to strike a distinctly adversarial tone with the $130 billion U.S. tobacco industry2, presenting an unprecedented opening for companies in position to cash in on the changing market. Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) (LXRP Profile), as the only cannabis biotech company that has exposure to nicotine, stands alongside industry mainstays such as Altria Group, Inc. (NYSE: MO), Philip Morris International, Inc. (NYSE: PM) and British American Tobacco p.l.c. (NYSE: BTI), along with upstart 22nd Century Group, Inc. (NYSE: XXII), as the transformation of this global industry accelerates.

The slow death of the once ubiquitous cigarette wasn’t just uncovered with the FDA’s ruling. In fact, Big Tobacco has had its sights set on the development of marketable alternatives to its combustible offerings for years. A quick visit to Philip Morris’ website demonstrates these efforts, as the tagline “Designing a Smoke-Free Future” is placed front-and-center for all to see. As a reminder, Philip Morris is the global cigarette giant behind Marlboro and six of the world’s top 15 international brands, and its tobacco products are currently sold in over 180 countries outside the U.S.

Though still in their relative infancy, smoke-free cigarette alternatives have already proven to be highly marketable as cigarettes and similar products have faced increasing regulations and slumping sales. Per a report3 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly 9 million adult consumers, or 3.7 percent of American adults, used tobacco-free electronic cigarettes or vapor products on a regular basis in 2014. These products typically serve as a delivery method for nicotine, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse4 reports that they are often used to lower nicotine cravings for those who are trying to quit smoking. However, as the Institute notes, there is currently no conclusive scientific evidence on the effectiveness of e-cigarettes for long-term smoking cessation, and, perhaps more importantly, the safety characteristics of these devices haven’t been thoroughly evaluated in independent scientific studies.

A dearth of safe alternatives and an increasingly regulated tobacco industry combine to create a large and rapidly expanding market for smoking cessation solutions. According to a 2016 report5 by Grand View Research, Inc., the global smoking cessation and nicotine de-addiction market is expected to reach over $21.8 billion by 2024. As Grand View reports, “The launch of… improved and innovative nicotine replacement therapy products is to serve as a high impact rendering driver for the growth of the smoking cessation and nicotine de-addiction market.” Staring at a fertile market that’s concentrated on driving innovation, Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), with its patented lipid-delivery technology, could prove to be a long-term player offering vast positive community health benefits and considerable upside, particularly for early investors.

Lexaria Bioscience’s intellectual property portfolio features a collection of advancements focused on improving the delivery and absorption of targeted molecules – such as nicotine – to the human body. Notably, the company maintains a patented method by which it is able to infuse a cocktail of molecules that are otherwise difficult for the body to absorb within other ingredients at a molecular level. As Lexaria’s website outlines, the company’s platform allows for the infusion of beneficial hemp oil ingredients into easily-absorbed lipids, greatly increasing the efficiency of absorption. Currently implemented in the production of two distinct consumer product brands including ViPova™ and Lexaria Energy, this technology has proven to be a potential game changer in the cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals market, an industry that’s on course to grow to $50 billion by 2029, per data aggregated by Statista6.

An equally promising application of this technology relates to the delivery of nicotine, which is also referenced in Lexaria’s lipid-based delivery patent. The company’s proprietary platform allows for the infusion of nicotine molecules within a wide range of edible food ingredients or typical capsule formats, effectively opening the door for the creation of a new product category targeting the high-demand smoking cessation market. Edible or encapsulated forms of nicotine delivery have traditionally failed due to challenges that Lexaria’s new technology may overcome. As the company notes, most of the adverse health outcomes associated with nicotine consumption are due to problematic delivery methods, such as cigarettes and other combustible products. As such, the development of nicotine-infused edible products that remove those dangerous side effects could greatly improve upon the safety profile of most currently-marketed options.

Though promising, Lexaria’s patented molecular delivery technology remains in its early stages. The company is currently investigating the best methods of maximizing on the platform’s market potential. As part of these efforts, Lexaria is also examining the feasibility of in-vitro and in vivo laboratory tests of its technology in order to generate real data regarding the bioavailability of nicotine with and without its protective technology. Combined with potential market indications in the delivery of non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) and vitamins, markets valued at $5.4 billion and $68 billion respectively, Lexaria’s lipid-delivery technology makes the company an intriguing option for investors with a finger on the pulse of the evolving tobacco industry.

While Lexaria focuses on the development of new delivery technologies for nicotine, much of Big Tobacco has already turned its attention toward the development of reduced-risk alternatives to combustible products. On its website, Altria Group, Inc. (MO), parent company of Philip Morris USA and cigar-maker John Middleton Co., among others, notes that its goals are to develop lower-risk tobacco products for adult consumers, support programs that help reduce underage tobacco use and provide access to expert quitting information for those who have decided to quit. For Altria and many other tobacco industry leaders, much of the focus remains on electronic cigarettes and e-vapor products.

This interest in the electronic cigarette market has seen a lot of early success, though, as noted in an April 2016 report7 from the Royal College of Physicians, “[I]t is not possible to estimate the long-term health risk associated with e-cigarettes precisely.” In 2015, sales of e-cigarettes totaled $2.88 billion, according to Statistic Brain8, up from just $20 million in 2008.

A former operating company of Altria Group, Philip Morris International, Inc. (PM) was spun off in 2008 in an effort to better pursue sales growth in emerging markets. Philip Morris’ most extensive project in the cigarette-alternative space is iQOS (I-Quit-Ordinary-Smoking), which it originally announced in 2014 and currently markets under the Marlboro and Parliament brands. Rather than burning tobacco, the iQOS employs heat to generate a tobacco-based aerosol containing nicotine. As of the end of 2016, Philip Morris’ iQOS was available in over 20 countries, with the company teaming with Altria Group to bring the product to the U.S. in the coming months. Although iQOS and similar heat-not-burn tobacco products present some benefits over cigarettes, such as leaving less smell and odor on clothing, independent research is not currently available to support claims of lowered risk or health benefits, according to the World Health Organization.

British American Tobacco p.l.c. (BTI) categorizes its efforts outside of the traditional tobacco space as “Next Generation Products,” a classification that includes an assortment of alternative tobacco and nicotine products aimed at reducing the risks associated with smoking conventional cigarettes. Per its website, British American Tobacco, over the past five years, has invested more than $1 billion in building its Next Generation Products business. In 2013, it became the first international tobacco company to launch an e-cigarette product in the UK. Since launching its Vype product line, British American Tobacco has introduced products such as the Vype ePen, eTank and eBox, as well as iFuse and glo, two tobacco heating products similar to those offered by Philip Morris.

As with many of its competitors, 22nd Century Group, Inc. (XXII) is focused on reducing the harm caused by smoking, as is communicated through a tagline on its website. Unlike many of its competitors, however, 22nd Century’s products are taking direct aim at the FDA’s latest proposal. As noted in a recent Bloomberg article9, this relatively obscure biotechnology company in western New York grows tobacco plants with just three percent of the nicotine found in typical tobacco plants. Using these plants, the company creates Very Low Nicotine cigarettes that are expected to go through the FDA-approval process as a prescription smoking cessation aid. This innovative approach which, like that of Lexaria Bioscience Corp., goes against the grain in an industry filled to the brim with e-cigarettes and vaping products, has already started to pay off for 22nd Century investors. While Big Tobacco stocks plunged following the FDA’s nicotine announcement, 22nd Century’s shares were up 70 percent for the week ended August 4, including a 25 percent increase on Friday that marked its biggest one-day spike since March 2015.

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and Big Tobacco’s industry-wide commitment to developing pioneering devices in the face of increasingly stringent FDA regulations is impossible to overlook. Still, electronic cigarette alternatives and heat-not-burn tobacco products could be half measures in a market that’s primed for a major overhaul. Look for true innovators like Lexaria Bioscience Corp., with its patented lipid-based delivery technology, to develop a foothold as the next iteration of the global $600 billion tobacco industry begins to take shape.

Lexaria Bioscience’s (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Revolutionary Process Creates Superior Cannabinoid Edibles

- Disruptive, patented technology is set to revolutionize the edible cannabis market
- Company has patent applications in 45 countries, including 18 applications in the U.S.
- Technology is patent-protected for CBD and all other non-psychoactive cannabinoids, with patents pending for THC, other psychoactive cannabinoids, NSAIDs, nicotine and other molecules

A common complaint among the consumers of cannabis edibles is an unpleasant taste that can often be detected, but that unpleasant taste and other inadequacies of cannabis edibles are being overcome thanks to the incredible innovations of Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP).

Lexaria is literally bringing new flavor to the marijuana industry with its disruptive process, which masks the unpleasant taste associated with cannabis. Lexaria’s lipophilic enhancement technology also changes the way cannabinoids enter the body; substantially speeds up the time frame in which tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) effects can be felt after consuming a cannabinoid edible; and increases bio-absorption by up to 10 times, making the absorption from cannabis edibles equal to the absorption from inhaled cannabis.

Because cannabinoids are absorbed poorly by the gastrointestinal tract, many cannabis users turn to other administration routes, like smoking, for greater effectiveness. Lexaria’s proprietary technology for better delivery of bioactive compounds solves the problem of poor absorption, increasing the bio-absorption of cannabis edibles by between five and tenfold. The effects of the THC from an edible product created using Lexaria’s patented process are also felt much more quickly—taking effect within 15-20 minutes as opposed to one to two hours.

The possibilities enabled by Lexaria’s technology are multifold and exciting. For instance, excessive amounts of sugar have previously had to be included in cannabis edibles to mask the unwanted taste, but because Lexaria’s technology eliminates that undesirable flavor, zero-sugar formats are now possible for cannabinoid edibles.

Lexaria’s process involves taking the healthy cocktail of molecules found in the company’s organically sourced hemp and infusing those molecules inside the molecules of other ingredients. Lexaria works with lipids, because the endocannabinoid system in the human body is lipid-based. The company has found its method to be a more efficient means of delivering hemp oil ingredients to the body, making a small amount of hemp seed oil inside a Lexaria product equal to a great deal of hemp oil delivered via a product that wasn’t created using the company’s revolutionary technology.

Lexaria’s pioneering technology is patent-protected for cannabidiol (CBD) and all other non-psychoactive cannabinoids. Patents are further pending for THC and other psychoactive cannabinoids, along with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), nicotine and other molecules. In the United States, 18 patent applications have been filed, and international and national patent filings have been made in 44 other countries.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Continues to Deliver Results with its Patented Technology

- 19 patent applications filed in the United States and internationally (under the Patent Cooperation Treaty), with national filings in 44 countries
- Collaborative research and development agreement with Canada’s National Research Council to investigate opportunities associated with bioavailability enhancement of certain compounds, including those in cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine
- Out-licenses its patented technology to third party partners, with several deals signed or pending

When Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) researchers tackled the issue facing consumers of edible cannabinoids – poor absorption of the product’s bioactive compounds by the body’s gastrointestinal tract – an important statement led the way: bioavailability matters. The company realized that if hemp oil ingredients were infused within lipids found in popular foods, the common problems of bad taste, poor absorption in the body and lack of product variety could be solved.

Lexaria has since developed a superior method of lipid-delivery technology through a patented process that does this by infusing the beneficial elements of hemp oil to lipid molecules. Lexaria reminds consumers that it is not mixing hemp oil into a product; it is infusing organically sourced, high purity hemp oil inside the molecules of other ingredients to produce superior tasting and performing food and beverages, including premium teas, protein energy bars and hemp oil capsules formulated with ginseng and ginkgo for enhanced memory and focus.

Additionally, this technologically superior method of delivery is being considered for other products in demand by consumers, namely nicotine-based products. Lexaria’s method could remove many of the dangerous side effects of nicotine, although the patented molecular delivery technology for this product remains in its early stages (http://nnw.fm/HZov0).

Lexaria is also seeking patents to use its lipophilic enhancement technology for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other psychoactive cannabinoids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs such as ibuprofen), nicotine and other molecules. New business-to-business relationships are on the horizon in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine delivery.

For instance, excessive amounts of sugar have previously had to be included in cannabis edibles to mask the unwanted taste, but because Lexaria’s technology eliminates that undesirable flavor, zero-sugar formats are now possible for cannabinoid edibles.”
