Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) recently announced it had demonstrated superior CBD blood absorption levels from its patented DehydraTECH(TM)-processed CBD compared to those of published comparators. “In their analysis, Lexaria’s researchers compared the average blood plasma levels of DehydraTECH-CBD at various dose levels (after the steady state or the amount of time needed before a consistent dose of drug achieves a stable plasma level had been reached) with that of non-Lexaria, pharmaceutical-grade CBD formulations published in two studies – a 2017 clinical trial and a 2019 study,” a recent article reads. “The 2017 trial evidenced an average blood plasma CBD level of 23.0 ng/ml after 22 days (the steady state) of daily dosing at a 5 mg/kg non-Lexaria CBD dose level. Lexaria’s HYPER-H21-4 study, on the other hand, showed that the DehydraTECH technology resulted in a 45.8% higher average blood plasma level (33.3 ng/mL) at DehydraTECH-CBD’s lowest dose level tested of just 3.38 mg/kg. When the dose level was increased to 4.46 mg/kg (the highest in the test), the blood plasma level was 133.4% higher than in the 2017 study at 53.7 ng/mL.”
