The patent application number is 16/497,920 under the title “Food and Beverage Compositions Infused With Lipophilic Active Agents and Methods of Use Thereof”. As has been Lexaria’s experience in the past, the Company expects the formal granting of the new patent within roughly one hundred days or less.

The Options are being issued pursuant to the Company’s shareholder approved Equity Incentive Plan whereby the exercise price of any Options issued to a person holding 10% or more of the Company’s issued share capital must be equal to 110% of the fair market value of the Company’s shares. The Options are exercisable for a period of five years expiring on April 23, 2025, with some issuances being subject to certain vesting provisions.

The option shares will be subject to a four month hold period as prescribed by Canadian Securities Exchange policies.

About Lexaria

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. is a global innovator in drug delivery platforms. Its patented DehydraTECH™ drug delivery technology changes the way Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients enter the bloodstream, promoting healthier ingestion methods, lower overall dosing and higher effectiveness for lipophilic active molecules.

Lexaria has licensed DehydraTECH to multiple companies in the cannabis industry for use in cannabinoid beverages, edibles and oral products; and to a world-leading tobacco producer for the development of smokeless, oral-based nicotine products. Lexaria operates a licensed in-house research laboratory and holds a robust intellectual property portfolio with 16 patents granted and over 60 patents pending worldwide.
