Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) will soon begin a human clinical study, NIC-H22-1, to compare its DehydraTECH-nicotine pouch performance with that of existing brands such as ON! and Zyn, currently available in the U.S. “Animal testing has already demonstrated that DehydraTECH-nicotine can deliver peak nicotine performance to the bloodstream 10 to 20 times faster than the study’s controls,” a recent article reads. “Lexaria has long held that any form of inhaling chemical substances can be detrimental to health, and its DehydraTECH-nicotine aims to help vapers as well as smokers wean themselves off of those products, giving them relief from cravings while offering a safer nicotine alternative. ‘My father also died from lung cancer … so I am no fan [of smoking],’ CEO Chris Bunka told Forbes in 2019. ‘The fact that [DehydraTECH] is fast means that smokers might not be frustrated waiting for their nicotine experience to begin, the way they have been with traditional nicotine products such as gums and lozenges.’”
