Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, is reporting additional results from its human clinical study HYPER-H21-2. The study was designed to evaluate the company’s proprietary DehydraTECH(TM)-processed cannabidiol (“CBD”) and its effectiveness in the treatment of hypertension. Results confirm the substance’s ability to reduce arterial stiffness and indicate potential broader applications beyond hypertension, including the treatment of cardiovascular and other diseases. According to the company, arterial stiffness can be a predictor of a variety of human diseases, including hypertension, diabetes mellitus, renal disease and more. A unique CBD formulation developed by Lexaria, DehydraTECH-CBD is based on the company’s patented and proprietary DehydraTECH drug-delivery technology. The company’s Human Study HYPER-H21-2 included 16 human volunteers aged 45 to 65 who received either a placebo or three separate doses of DehydraTECH-CBD over a 14-hour period then observed over a 24-hour period. “Reducing arterial stiffness in Lexaria’s recent hypertension study after only a single day of dosing with our DehydraTECH-CBD is a major discovery,” said Lexaria president John Docherty in the press release. “We know that increased arterial stiffness is correlated with many serious and life-threatening diseases affecting people worldwide, and we are optimistic that our latest findings could have future widespread implications for promotion of improved human health and wellness.”
