NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkWire -- NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring Lexaria Bioscience (CSE:LXX) (OTCQB:LXRP), a client of NNW focused on developing and out-licensing its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids and nicotine.

  Lexaria recently announced the results of its second in vivo study of 2018 evaluating the use of DehydraTECH as a nicotine delivery system. The results proved the delivery of more nicotine, more quickly, than the positive controls.

The study, which was carried out by a third-party laboratory, looked at the absorption of nicotine delivered in an edible form via DehydraTECH. It found that the method led to significantly greater absorption of nicotine: there was 90.2 percent greater absorption within the first 10 minutes using the DehydraTECH system instead of the tested control.

Speed of absorption is one of the most important issues for non-inhalation forms of nicotine delivery, given the rapidity with which smoking gets the drug into the body, so this is a strong sign for the potential of DehydraTECH as a smoking alternative. Because it delivers the nicotine so quickly, Lexaria's technology could open the door to entirely new forms of consumer products around the world.
