Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global leader in enhancing the speed and efficiency of orally delivered fat-soluble active molecules and drugs, has, since inception, been committed to addressing severe unmet patient needs. Hypertension has been one of its main focus areas. “Lexaria continues to move forward, most recently with the success in its latest human clinical study, HYPER-H21-4. The study may be the first to evidence a sustained drop in blood pressure in normally active patients following multiple weeks of oral cannabidiol (‘CBD’) therapy using the company’s patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology,” reads a recent article. “Since Lexaria began developing DehydraTECH in 2014, it has continued to strengthen and broaden the technology, exploring various areas including but not limited to the oral administration of antivirals, cannabinoids, vitamins, nicotine, and PDE5 inhibitors. In early 2021, it began dosing in its first human clinical study that assessed its DehydraTECH-enabled CBD capsule formulation. This would lay the groundwork for subsequent studies while also bolstering the company’s growing list of patents, which currently stands at 27, spread across the world, including the use of DehydraTECH-processed CBD for the treatment of heart disease.”
