Kelowna, BC / March 8, 2016 / Lexaria, Corp. (OTCQB:LXRP) (CSE:LXX) (the “Company”) provides an update on operations.
The centerpiece of Lexaria’s uniqueness is its patent pending technology that enables higher rates of absorption of certain molecules such as vitamins and cannabinoids while simultaneously masking and at times even eliminating inherent strong flavours and/or odors typical of those molecules. The family of Lexaria Energy and ViPovaTM products have demonstrated to thousands of satisfied consumers the overwhelming effectiveness of this technology.
Lexaria remains committed to its consumer products but also points out that the products serve as an effective showcase of the excellent taste experiences possible with the remarkable technology. As such, the Company has always believed that opportunities to license the technology to others can build revenue streams unrelated to the sale of Lexaria or ViPovaTM consumer products.
Having completed the first of several applicability tests with potential partners, Lexaria is now in discussions, some advanced and others preliminary, regarding licensing its technology for the purposes of enabling specialty food manufacturers to offer improved food consuming experiences. Although no final agreements have yet been reached, the increase in interested potential licensees in recent weeks is notable.
Within the protein bar category, over 300 people enjoyed the Lexaria Protein Bars at the recent California Cannabis Business Expo located in San Francisco to wildly positive reviews. As well, recipe development continues to improve the bars with several improved recipe combinations currently being explored for potential release this year.
Meanwhile, after working with Lexaria in different capacities over the past nine years, Mr. Tom Ihrke has resigned from Lexaria and from Poviva LLC to pursue other opportunities. Tom is a beloved member of the Lexaria community and we wish him well in all his endeavours.
Finally, Lexaria reminds all shareholders of the upcoming Annual General Meeting to be held March 23, 2016, and encourages all who are eligible to cast their votes.
Lexaria is a food sciences company focused on the delivery of active compounds that can behave as superfoods through its proprietary infusion technologies. Lexaria’s technology enables higher bioavailability rates for CBD; THC; NSAIDs; Nicotine and other molecules than is possible without lipophilic enhancement technology. This can allow for lower overall dosing requirements and/or higher effectiveness in active molecule delivery. Lexaria hopes to reduce other common but less healthy ingestion methods such as smoking as it embraces the benefits of public health. www.lexariaenergy.com
