April 30th, 2018
Nuka’s 1906 chocolates, utilizing Lexaria’s DehydraTECH technology, have been recognized for their fast onset times, efficacy, amazing taste and unique formulations
Kelowna, British Columbia – April 30, 2018 – Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQX: LXRP) (CSE: LXX), an innovator in drug delivery platforms, today announced a major new licensing agreement with Nuka Enterprises LLC, maker of 1906 brand cannabis chocolates and other edible products. The deal renews Nuka’s DehydraTECHTM license rights for use in its 1906 brand of cannabis chocolates, recognized for their fast onset times, efficacy, amazing taste and unique formulations.
Nuka has been utilizing Lexaria’s technology within its award-winning 1906 brand chocolates for nearly two years, during which time 1906 entered the cannabis market; advanced from a start-up to Colorado’s number-three cannabis chocolate brand available in over 150 locations; and touted by media, industry watchers and consumers as one of the most innovative brands in the cannabis space.
“1906 products are a unique combination of nature and science, bringing together natural plant medicines delivered in delicious form factors such as chocolate with advanced technologies that make them safe, predictable, fast-acting and efficacious,” said Peter Barsoom, CEO of Nuka Enterprises, LLC. “We’ve worked closely with Lexaria through 1906’s development and launch phases to create the best possible products that taste great, reduce onset times and deliver amazing experiences. Fast-acting edibles are the wave of the future – it’s what consumers want – and we are at the forefront of bringing innovations to address consumer needs.”
The comprehensive 10-year agreement provides Nuka and 1906 with competitive technological advantages, as well as growing revenue streams for Lexaria. The semi-exclusive deal provides Nuka and 1906 with the immediate ability to utilize DehydraTECHTM technology across the US. Initially, 1906 will focus on recreational and adult-use states such as Colorado, Nevada, California, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. Nuka has also acquired an option to expand its products and brand to Canada, including through the use of Lexaria’s existing chocolate and confections contract manufacturer licensee Cannfections Group Inc.
Nuka and 1906 will leverage the competitive advantages of DehydraTECHTM across multiple product lines, as they have also strategically acquired new rights in product categories in addition to the original chocolate formats, which include candies, beverages, capsules and pills, and topical creams. In doing so, Nuka and 1906 have the opportunity to create America’s first national DehydraTECHTM-powered cannabis brand for edible and topical products that offer the superior experiential profiles 1906 consumers desire, together with the exceptional flavor and speed of onset benefits.
“Nuka was our first commercial client and has been an ideal partner due to their focus on using technology and advanced science as a competitive advantage,” said Chris Bunka, Chief Executive Officer of Lexaria Bioscience Corp. “Nuka’s success with the 1906 brand of cannabis chocolates – recognized for their fast onset times, efficacy, taste and unique formulations – clearly demonstrate the market potential for DehydraTECHTM. This comprehensive, long-term relationship between Nuka and Lexaria is poised to redefine the cannabis industry and holds great potential for us in other markets.”
