Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, today announced that its recent oral tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”) absorption study THC-A21-1 revealed that DehydraTECH(TM)-THC delivered via oral ingestion required only 15 minutes to deliver THC levels in blood plasma comparable to levels achieved at 45 minutes with concentration-matched controls. According to the update, DehydraTECH-THC delivered more THC into the bloodstream during the study than the industry standard medium chain triglyceride (“MCT” or “coconut oil”) based control formulation from the two-minute mark onwards, then dropped rapidly to the same level as the MCT control by the six-hour mark. “The cannabis industry continues to use outdated formulations and processes that ignore the needs of modern THC users,” said Chris Bunka, CEO of Lexaria Bioscience Corp. “THC users today include recreational, medicinal and pharmaceutical users, all of whom need technology that doesn’t rely on harmful delivery methods such as smoking but still provides rapid onset and high bioavailability, which common oral formats do not offer. Our study findings demonstrated rapid delivery, increased overall THC delivery, and higher brain tissue delivery; all of which is consistent with the wants and needs of THC customers.”
