Common complaints among consumers of cannabis edibles include the presence an unpleasant taste, but this and other inadequacies are being overcome through the innovations of Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP). Lexaria’s disruptive process masks the unpleasant taste of cannabis, and the company’s lipophilic enhancement technology also changes the way cannabinoids enter the body while significantly speeding up the timeframe in which THC’s effects are felt and increasing bio-absorption by as much as tenfold. As noted in a recent NNW article:
“Because cannabinoids are absorbed poorly by the gastrointestinal tract, many cannabis users turn to other administration routes, like smoking, for greater effectiveness. Lexaria’s proprietary technology for better delivery of bioactive compounds solves the problem of poor absorption, increasing the bio-absorption of cannabis edibles by between five and tenfold. The effects of the THC from an edible product created using Lexaria’s patented process are also felt much more quickly—taking effect within 15-20 minutes as opposed to one to two hours. The possibilities enabled by Lexaria’s technology are multifold and exciting. For instance, excessive amounts of sugar have previously had to be included in cannabis edibles to mask the unwanted taste, but because Lexaria’s technology eliminates that undesirable flavor, zero-sugar formats are now possible for cannabinoid edibles.”
