We are a food sciences company focused on the delivery of hemp oil ingredients through gourmet foods based upon our proprietary technologies.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. is a food biosciences company with a proprietary technology for improved delivery of bioactive compounds. The Company’s lipophilic enhancement technology has been shown to enhance the bioavailability of orally ingested cannabinoids, while also masking taste. Cannabinoids are poorly absorbed by the body’s gastrointestinal tract and consumers often default to alternate routes of administration like smoking to achieve higher effectiveness.
We live in an age where technology touches our lives constantly. When it works well we don't notice the tech - we only notice the benefits. Most of us have forgotten that anti-lock brakes on our cars used to be "hi-tech". Or that "wireless internet"was once considered almost a miracle.
We know that delivering balanced nutrition in a single package to the human body can be challenging. Lexaria has already taken a giant first step in a process we believe makes us unique in the entire marketplace.
We actually have a patent-pending method by which we infuse the healthy cocktail of molecules in our organically sourced hemp oil INSIDE the molecules of other ingredients. We work with lipids because the human endocannabinoid system is itself lipid based. We believe this is a more efficient way of delivering hemp oil ingredients to your body. Said another way, a little hemp seed oil within one of our products might be similar to a LOT of hemp oil ingested without our proprietary technology!
From June 2015 to August 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third party laboratory to test our technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Specifically, we wanted to gain scientific evidence of two hypothesis. As it turned out, we learned that and more. First, does our technological process yield an improvement in intestinal absorption? The answer was YES. Second, does our lipid formulation yield an improvement in intestinal absorption? The answer was also YES. In addition, we also learned that our processed, lipid infused tea was absorbed at higher levels in the presence of “gastric juices” than in a more sterile environment without any “gastric juices”, suggesting though certainly not proving that our technology and formulation may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation.
