Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, recently announced the publishing of its groundbreaking research utilizing DehydraTECH(TM)-processed cannabidiol (DehydraTECH-CBD) in eight peer-reviewed articles in six different publications. Since 2016, the company’s patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to increase bio-absorption with cannabinoids, antiviral drugs, PDE5 inhibitors, and more.
These publications build on Lexaria’s growing body of peer-reviewed literature developed on the company’s leading research into the effects of DehydraTECH-CBD on human health, including indications such as hypertension. The most recent paper is entitled, “Differences in Plasma Cannabidiol Concentrations in Women and Men: A Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Crossover Study,” which was published in June 2023 in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences (https://ibn.fm/DOLxN).
“We’re proud of the impressive amount of research that our company has been able to develop through its HYPER-H21 series of clinical studies that has now been assessed by a variety of our respected peers,” said John Docherty, President of Lexaria (https://ibn.fm/5zp9P). “Lexaria is establishing itself as one of the world’s leaders in the investigation of cannabidiol for the purposes of controlling human blood pressure, and we are now focused on launching an FDA-registered IND program to formally investigate DehydraTECH-CBD for hypertension this year.”
