Company Background

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. has developed and out-licenses its disruptive technology that promotes healthier ingestion methods, lower overall dosing and higher effectiveness of lipophilic active molecules. Lexaria has multiple patents pending in over 40 countries around the world and was granted its first patents in the USA and in Australia related to edible forms of cannabinoids. Lexaria’s technology provides increases in intestinal absorption rates; more rapid delivery to the bloodstream; and important taste-masking benefits, for orally administered bioactive molecules including cannabinoids, vitamins, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), nicotine and other molecules.

Highlights

Lexaria Technology is applicable in Four Sectors. Each sector provides unique opportunities for valuation enhancement, and Lexaria offers unique benefits to each sector:
    1. Cannabinoids: faster acting, better tasting, higher absorption, lower production cost
    2. Vitamins and Herbs: faster acting, higher absorption
    3. NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory pain relief): Bypass 1st-pass liver filtration minimizes liver disease, higher absorption means lower doses also minimizing liver and kidney complications and gastric bleeding incidence.
    4. Nicotine: GI absorption vs smoking could help prevent some of the ~7 million annual deaths from smoking cigarettes. In the US alone, over $200 billion is spent annually on health care related to smoking cigarettes. The tobacco industry is worth $800 billion per annum.
  • Lexaria is the only company in North America to have a R&D collaboration with a Federal Government: Canada's National Research Council (NRC) and Lexaria are collaborating on cannabinoid delivery.
  • Lexaria is a B2B technology license provider and call sell its technology anywhere in the world; as a service provider it is not constrained by local regulations on restricted substances.
  • Lexaria's technology licensing revenues are exceptionally high quality with profit margins typically over 90%.
