British Columbia-based, biodelivery technology developer Lexaria Bioscience (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) is committed to the idea that better alternative methods for drug delivery exist than inhalation. A recent article discussing the company reads, “Swallowed medications have historically been slower to provide effective action than inhaled ones, leading substance users looking for a quick fix to lean toward the latter. But the deleterious and deadly consequences of smoking tobacco products have been publicly acknowledged for decades, though hardly stemming the tide of nicotine addiction as one generation succeeds another. . . . The continued preference for the rapid delivery of inhaled drug substances has led many researchers to seek alternatives beyond deterrence campaigns. DehydraTECH’s newest formulation was recently shown to deliver 811% more CBD into the bloodstream than generic industry control formulations, nearly doubling the capacity of existing DehydraTECH technology. It was additionally shown to deliver 1,937% more CBD across the blood-brain barrier into brain tissue than generic industry-control formulations and 487% more than the original DehydraTECH technology (http://cnw.fm/89Soz).”
