Lexaria Hemp Corp. is a subsidiary of Lexaria Bioscience Corp, which acquired the precursor to the DehydraTECH™ technology in 2014. Lexaria Hemp Corp was formed in 2018 to focus on commercial opportunities within the hemp industry and empowered with an exclusive global license to utilize DehydraTECH worldwide for the delivery of hemp and hemp-complex molecules.
Lexaria Hemp Corp. has emerged as a global leader in enhancing the flavor, bouquet and gastro-intestinal delivery of hemp-based foods, beverages, and supplement products. The Lexaria family of companies has also demonstrated early-stage effectiveness in improvements of delivery through human skin for the potential development of topically-administered products, including patches, cremes and lotions.
Lexaria’s ground-breaking 2018 human clinical study investigated delivery of CBD to human volunteers under a medical university setting. At the 30-minute mark, Lexaria’s technology delivered 317% more CBD to blood than the non-technologically enhanced generic CBD. A number of tests have been conducted and the common achievements are more CBD delivered, and delivered more quickly with DehydraTECH than without.
Lexaria produces industry-leading research to support its novel delivery technology. Lexaria’s business model depends on industry partners who in-license its technology for additional R&D and consumer product development.
None of this can happen without the talented and dedicated people who have supported Lexaria’s development and growth. Lexaria’s internal and consulting team includes industry leaders, research scientists, clinicians, analytical chemists, medical schools and universities, intellectual property experts and partnering company collaborators.
Lexaria is fortunate to be the recipient of widely varying experience and knowledge from advisors who consult with the company from time to time. These experts contribute knowledge and experience on an as-needed basis in these roles that are less formal than managers or directors. Still, we benefit from their involvement and are grateful for their presence.
