  Kelowna, British Columbia – TheNewswire – July 11, 2019 – Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQX:LXRP) (CNSX:LXX) (the “Company” or “Lexaria”), a drug delivery platform innovator, announces that it has entered a definitive 5-year agreement, via its subsidiary Lexaria Hemp Corp., to provide Lexaria’s patented DehydraTECHTMtechnology to Universal Hemp LLC, a B2B manufacturing company of high-performing hemp-derived bulk ingredients to the nutraceutical and consumer packaged goods industries, for utilization into many CBD-based food ingredients to be produced and sold across the USA immediately, and in Canada when regulations permit.

Competitive financial details including royalty rates remain confidential and undisclosed although the companies have agreed to disclose minimum payments over the life of the agreement of US$3,750,000.

“We are very excited about signing this licensing agreement with Lexaria Bioscience to bring to market Lexaria’s highly effective delivery system which makes cannabidiol or hemp-derived CBD readily available in the human body,” said Chad Kahunahana, CEO and Founder of Universal Hemp. “Lexaria’s unique technology was developed over many years for specified applications and is now, for the first time, being applied to CBD at scale and available for general use. We anticipate our SuperBio Infusion line of ingredients will become the industry leader for CBD-infused health and beauty, food and beverage, wellness, athletic and other products where maximum performance is vital. In terms of bioavailability, shelf stability and taste this is the best performing technology in the market, hands down. Our corporate customers cannot wait to put our water-soluble solution into their products!” added Kahunahana.

The DehydraTECH-enabled food ingredients are protected under Lexaria’s many existing US-granted patents and may include forms such as CBD-infused wheat or corn flour, gum Arabic, whey protein, green tea, tapioca starch and many others including forms suitable for beverage and dietary supplement formulation.

“We are pleased to announce our new licensee Universal Hemp whose well respected presence in the hemp industry will enable our patented technology to have widespread use and distribution in high-performance products providing precision dosing, maximum strength, and rapid uptake,” said Chris Bunka, Lexaria Bioscience CEO.

Universal Hemp plans to make its CBD-infused bulk food ingredients available throughout the USA immediately, and in Canada when regulations permit.
