Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) acknowledges consumers’ shift away from smoking cigarettes to nicotine alternatives, which has resulted in the growth of the nicotine pouch and nicotine replacement therapy (“NRT”) markets. Through its patented DehydraTECH technology, Lexaria looks to tap into the multibillion-dollar nicotine alternatives industry and stamp its position. “In a move that sought to prove DehydraTECH’s superiority, Lexaria conducted an oral nicotine absorption study in 2021. The research showed that Lexaria’s DehydraTECH-nicotine delivered via an oral pouch product dispensed enough nicotine levels in blood plasma in four minutes, as concentration-matched controls did in 45 minutes. In addition, peak levels of DehydraTECH-nicotine proved to be approximately ten times higher than the peak level of the controls,” a recent article reads. “With key industry players such as Altria Group, British American Tobacco Industries, Philip Morris International, and GlaxoSmithKline PLC embracing a transition to a smoke-free future, Lexaria isn’t being left behind. Instead, it recognizes the existing opportunity and is capitalizing on its DehydraTECH technology to set itself apart from its peers and aggressively push its brand in the market.”
