Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) is a global leader in enhancing the speed and efficiency of orally delivered fat-soluble active molecules and drugs. “Lexaria [recently] announced that the study program DIAB-A22-1 [had begun] on schedule, making it the company’s first-ever study to investigate whether its DehydraTECH-processed cannabidiol (‘CBD’) may potentially have therapeutic utility against diabetes,” a recent article reads. “Lexaria is optimistic that its DehydraTECH-CBD will yield notable results from this study, especially having met primary safety and efficacy objectives from its HYPER-H21-4 clinical study. There is a strong connection between heart disease, hypertension and diabetes, with hypertension proving to be as frequent in people with diabetes and hypertensive patients being at a greater risk of developing diabetes. So far, CBD has shown some ability to reduce the incidence of diabetes in mice, with the study yielding a significant decrease in pancreatic islets production of destructive insulitis and inflammatory cytokine production. Lexaria looks to build on these findings and investigate whether its patented DehydraTECH-CBD may potentially have therapeutic utility against diabetes.”
