Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) is developing a potential hypertension treatment with little to no side effects. “The treatment is created by processing cannabidiol (‘CBD’) using the company’s patented DehydraTECH(TM) drug delivery technology, which has been shown to substantially increase the bioavailability of active pharmaceutical ingredients (‘APIs’). In human studies, Lexaria has shown that DehydraTECH-CBD not only increases the amount of CBD in the blood by as much as 317% but also reduces blood pressure and arterial stiffness,” a recent article reads. “Lexaria hopes to prove, through registered clinical trials, that its DehydraTECH-CBD formulation has an acceptable safety and tolerability profile and that it is effective against hypertension. The proof could potentially influence the registration of DehydraTECH-CBD as the second FDA-approved CBD drug, offering a reprieve to millions of hypertension patients who do not have their condition under control because they receive numerous antihypertensive drugs or are unwilling to suffer through these medications’ adverse side effects.”
