Lexaria Bioscience’s (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) innovative DehydraTECH(TM) delivery platform is patented for all nonpsychoactive cannabinoids as well as for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and psychoactive cannabinoids. An article discussing the company reads, “Medical researchers have struggled to find ways to penetrate the blood brain barrier effectively to transport beneficial drugs for many years. This barrier exists to block toxic or otherwise dangerous substances from entering the brain and is formed by layers of microvascular endothelial cells inside blood vessels. Lexaria’s DehydraTECH(TM) drug delivery platform brings beneficial drugs to the brain faster. . . . In June 2019, Lexaria completed a series of animal studies using an enhanced formulation of its DehydraTECH technology. This series built on the company’s original, independent, third-party laboratory in vitro lab experiments began in 2015, which showed utilization of the DehydraTECH drug-delivery platform increased the absorption levels of cannabidiol (CBD) in human intestinal cells by an impressive 499%. The results of the studies showed delivery of 1,937% more CBD into animal brain tissue after eight hours using the enhanced DehydraTECH technology in comparison with generic industry MCT coconut-oil formulations. Moreover, the animal studies using the enhanced formulation showed an 811% increase of CBD delivery into the blood in comparison with generic MCT coconut-oil formulations.”
