Kelowna, BC / August 30, 2016 / Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQB:LXRP) (CSE:LXX) (“the Company” or “Lexaria”) has entered a new letter of intent (LOI) to license its proprietary absorption and palatability enhancing technology for cannabinoids and other bioactive substances. This is the third LOI that Lexaria has reached with potential licensees so far this year, with one of those three so far having advanced to a working definitive agreement.
The potential licensee is one of America’s most respected and well-known brands in the cannabis infused products market, active in California and other U.S. states. The identity of the potential licensee will remain undisclosed pending further developments.
Under the terms of the LOI, the parties have agreed to perform due diligence evaluations prior to the possibility of entering a definitive agreement including development and testing of sample formulations with Lexaria’s enhancements compared to existing branded products. The parties will establish financial and territory terms upon finalization of the definitive agreement, pending the outcome of this formulation development and testing to demonstrate improved product performance to mutual satisfaction.
“We are extremely pleased to have reached this LOI with a recognized leader in the medical and adult use premium marijuana edibles sector,” said John Docherty, President of Lexaria Bioscience Corp. “Lexaria looks forward to conducting the formulation development and testing exercise, similar to those we performed for our first licensee earlier this year prior to definitive agreement signing, and we’re confident that our technology can offer enhanced product performance on multiple levels.”
The LOI is expected to advance into a definitive agreement within 90 days though there is no assurance of this. Additional information will be released regarding the completion of the definitive agreement, and progress with the formulation development and testing, as details are available. Readers are cautioned that a definitive agreement has not yet been reached and, even if reached, much of the financial compensation for Lexaria thereunder shall be dependent upon the success of the Licensee in selling products enhanced with Lexaria’s technology.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. 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.lexariabioscience.com
