Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) has embarked on its most ambitious study yet, the HYPER-H21-4. The study is among several geared towards evaluating DehydraTECH(TM)-processed CBD for the potential treatment of hypertension and heart disease. The learnings from two studies, HYPER-H21-1 and HYPER-H21-2, whose results are already out, have led to the HYPER-H21-4 clinical study. Further, blood pressure findings from HYPER-H21-3 will be reportable by the end of January 2022 and will contribute to the HYPER-H21-4. The study protocols for HYPER-H21-4 are being readied for submission to the Independent Review Board (“IRB”), and approval is expected by January 2022. HYPER-H21-4, which will be more comprehensive than Lexaria’s previous studies, is expected to involve 60 different volunteers aged between 45 and 70 years. Each of them will use three 150 mg doses of DehydraTECH-CBD every day over six weeks. A recent article notes, “The eventual goal is to seek regulatory approvals for DehydraTECH-CBD for potential use as a treatment for high blood pressure, and data from this study could be instrumental to that pursuit.”
