- Big corporations are investing in the cannabis industry
- Major tobacco company provides financing for LXRP
- LXRP boasts revenue streams within the nicotine industry and opportunity in other sectors
- Lexaria is a unique company doing business on its own terms
The cannabis industry is experiencing impressive growth thanks to both legal and social changes worldwide, and big corporations are stepping up to invest. In a new Audio Press Release (“APR”), CannabisNewsAudio praised Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) (http://ibn.fm/sR2IL) for building a large funding deal on its own terms. The APR, ‘Outside Investment, New Technology Support Growing Cannabis Industry’, highlighted Lexaria’s ability to create subsidiaries specializing in the use of DehydraTECH.
Through the deal, Lexaria Nicotine LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lexaria, has received an initial investment in the amount of $1 million – with the option for funding to increase to up to $12 million – from one of the world’s largest tobacco companies; the capital has been earmarked for research and development (http://ibn.fm/ChHLT). Lexaria will maintain its independence, while the investing company receives only minority ownership of the subsidiary. This unique arrangement allows the tobacco company to buy into LXRP without Lexaria actually selling any of its parent company.
Lexaria is strategically positioned to benefit from new revenue streams based on this deal. The company will receive royalties on any nicotine products created with DehydraTECH and be able to showcase its unique technology to other industries.
In addition to Lexaria Nicotine, LXRP has three more wholly owned subsidiaries that are working in various industries to create new deals on Lexaria’s terms.
- Lexaria CanPharm Corp. focuses on providing DehydraTECH to the global cannabis industry
- Lexaria Hemp Corp. focuses on providing DehydraTECH to the hemp-based food and supplements industry
- Lexaria Pharmaceutical Corp. focuses on licensing DehydraTECH to the pharmaceutical sectors
DehydraTECH is a drug-delivery platform patented for cannabidiol and all other non-psychoactive cannabinoids, as well as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and psychoactive cannabinoids. The technology is an enabling platform that works across multiple industries, thereby providing a large base of consumers with healthier forms of consumption than lighting up.
LXRP and DehydraTECH stand out among the competition. The company has a total of 10 patents issued with more than 50 patents pending worldwide. Few companies within the cannabis industry have attracted the attention of Fortune 500-type corporations, and even fewer are inking deals on their own terms. Lexaria Bioscience is one such stand-out.
