Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCMKTS:LXRP) (CSE:LXX) announced that it has successfully processed its first CBD nanoemulsion for one of its licensed clients using its DehydraTECH technology.
The British Columbia company provides emulsion services using DehydraTECH to qualifying clients who want to formulate ready-to-drink beverages containing CBD.
Super-concentrated DehydraTECH-enabled liquid nanoemulsion was shipped to the client's production facility for incorporation into its cold-brewed coffee production and bottling line. Lexaria said it was able to process nearly 100,000 20 mg servings of DehydraTECH-empowered CBD concentrate.

The client expects to begin distribution of its CBD beverage line in US stores soon, the company said.
DehydraTECH is able to mask unwanted tastes, improve onset speed and increase the bioavailability of active pharmaceutical ingredients in a simple and cost-effective platform. Essentially, the process allows CBD and other oils to be dehydrated into an odourless, tasteless powder and mixed with xanthan gum, corn flour and other base ingredients which can then be added to foods, drinks and creams.
Additionally, Lexaria said it has amended the terms of its license for DehydraTECH enabled CBD-infused food ingredients originally announced in July. The company removed the exclusivity provisions and reduced the aggregate minimum fees payable over the term of the license to US$132,500.
