Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), developers of the revolutionary DehydraTECH(TM) drug-delivery technology, has released study results focused on THC-A21-1, a THC oral format. According to the announcement, the study showed that Lexaria’s DehydraTECH THC solution delivers THC levels to blood plasma an estimated three times faster than standard MCT-based THC. Based on study results, it took only 15 minutes using oral ingestion of the substance to reach THC levels comparable to those reached in 45 minutes using “coconut-oil” formulations. As the THC left the system at the six-hour mark, levels were comparable and demonstrated the fast-on, fast-off performance. The DehydraTECH results are timely because the House Judiciary Committee last week passed the MORE Act, which signifies a general movement toward federal legalization of the drug. While the LEXX study was focused on the potential of advancing DehydraTECH THC as a medicinal solution, the results can be applied to a larger market. “THC consumers today include . . . medicinal and pharmaceutical users,” said Lexaria BioScience CEO Chris Bunka in the press release. “Our objective is to provide them rapid onset and high bioavailability without harmful delivery mechanisms like smoking.”
