Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, is focused on establishing a stronghold in the $28 billion hypertension drug market. The company’s exclusive therapeutic, DehydraTECH-CBD, has shown exciting potential as an alternative to traditional cannabidiol (“CBD”) dosing methods; the proprietary treatment may offer improved and more rapid absorption of drugs into the bloodstream and brain.
