While cannabidiol and other marijuana-derived substances are traditionally smoked, this can cause damage to the lungs, and edible cannabis products have their drawbacks, too—typically being filled with sugars or other sweeteners to mask the unpleasant flavor associated with cannabis compounds. With its pioneering TurboCBD™ product, however, Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) has revolutionized oral CBD intake, having engineered the product to enhance absorption through the intestinal tract without active compounds being destroyed by stomach acid or broken down by the liver, and this revolutionary product also masks the unpleasant flavor of cannabis compounds. An article further discussing this topic reads: “In August 2017, the University of British Columbia (UBC) announced (http://cnw.fm/bgC4i) that it will conduct the first clinical study of the high-absorption product while evaluating its effects on cognitive function and cardiovascular health of human volunteers. Currently, Lexaria is the only company to have been awarded a patent for delivery of ingestible non-psychoactive cannabinoids. It holds patents in the U.S. and Australia, and more are pending in over 40 other countries. The upcoming UBC study will be double-blind and placebo controlled. Researchers will measure the effects after a single dose and after seven days of daily doses. The 24 volunteers will consist of young and old individuals, whose glucose, blood pressure, vascular function, cognition, and physical performance will be measured. Blood samples, exercise tests, heart rate, respiration, and neuropsychological tests, among other measurements, will be conducted as well. These tests will provide a complete set of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic performance data of Lexaria’s TurboCBD™.”
