Lexaria Enters Licensing Agreement with Cannabis Edibles Infusion Company
February 27th, 2018
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQX: LXRP) (CSE: LXX) (the “Company” or “Lexaria”) a drug delivery platform innovator, announces it has entered a definitive technology licensing agreement (the “Agreement”) with Los Angeles-based, privately-held Biolog, Inc. (“Biolog”) whereby Lexaria is providing its patented DehydraTECHTM technology to empower a unique set of next-generation food and beverage cannabis infusion products to be sold in the United States.
Biolog, Inc. has separately acquired rights to patented technologies for a unique line of manufactured dissolvable infusion products designed for ease of use and precise per-unit ingredient dosing. Biolog intends to launch new products of this type to deliver DehydraTECHTM enabled CBD from hemp and/or vitamins in products available nationwide. Biolog will also launch new DehydraTECHTM enabled products in those states where it is permissible to do so delivering cannabinoids from cannabis. All product lines will offer superior palatability and bioabsorption, as well as fast action powered by DehyrdaTECHTM.
Biolog has acquired 5-year exclusive rights to use Lexaria’s DehydraTECHTM technology for these particular applications within the United States for an undisclosed sum and a royalty on revenue generated on products sold utilizing DehyrdaTECHTM.
“The versatility of Lexaria’s DehyrdaTECHTM technology is witnessed through its adoption to deliver vitamins in a nationally-available consumer product, or cannabinoids in many U.S. states,” said Chief Executive Officer Chris Bunka. “Biolog’s products are a unique and novel method to deliver precisely measured amounts of active ingredients thoroughly infused into foods and beverages of virtually all kinds and we welcome Biolog to our growing family of technology innovators.”
Craig Machado, CEO of Biolog commented, “Lexaria’s technologies apply very well to our product offerings and we could not be more excited to be soon offering Powered by Lexaria products to the marketplace. We plan to provide more information about our upcoming products, which will allow processors and consumers to turn almost any food or beverage into a cannabis edible, in the near future as we get closer to formal product launch.”
Lexaria’s patented DehydraTECH™ technology is focused on improved delivery methodologies of many commonly used active pharmaceutical ingredient (“API”) substances. As such, it provides an additional layer of effectiveness that is designed to harmonize with the intellectual property of third parties. Both patented and generic API substances can utilize Lexaria’s patented technology. Lexaria’s long term strategy is to partner with the world’s leading firms as they deliver best-of-class products to their existing large consumer groups.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. has developed and out-licenses its disruptive delivery 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 has patents granted in the USA and in Australia for utilization of its DehydraTECHTM delivery technology. 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.
