Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTC:LXRP) (CSE:LXX) (CNSX:LXX.CN) (the "Company" or "Lexaria"), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, is pleased to announce that it is in receipt of purchase-order commitments for approximately 4.4 million CBD servings of its patented DehydraTECH TM enabled CBD powders, to be processed during the Company's fiscal Q1 2021 which ends November 30, 2020

Lexaria has also received verbal requests from existing licensees to prepare the Company's facilities to produce at least 56 million servings during the calendar year 2021. These indicative orders do not include any potential demand from other future clients.

This compares to approximately 1.2 million CBD servings already processed in the Company's fiscal Q4 ended August 31, 2020, and approximately 0.7 million CBD servings during the Company's fiscal Q3 ended May 31, 2020 (all figures unaudited). A serving generally ranges from 10mg to 20mg of CBD each, utilizing the Company's DehydraTECH patented processes.

"After a significant investment of time and operations optimization, Lexaria's DehydraTECH CBD business is gaining traction in the US market," said Chris Bunka, Lexaria's Chief Executive Officer. "The benefits offered to DehydraTECH corporate clients, and the performance advantages enjoyed by end users, are inescapable."

Lexaria's business operations includes both technology licensing wherein corporate licensees implement DehydraTECH under license within their own facilities under royalty agreements, and also corporate clients that purchase pre-processed DehydraTECH CBD-powders manufactured at a Lexaria-contracted GMP-certified food facility for shipment back to the client for integration into final product formats. Fees payable to Lexaria contain a mixture of both manufacturing charges as well as royalty and trademark fees.

The Company cautions that it cannot control the ability of third parties to fulfil their own business expectations and, as such, does not express any opinion as to the ability of its corporate customers to meet their own expectations. The Company has sufficient cash and human resources to support this increase in demand.

About Lexaria

Bristol Myers Squibb Provides Update on CheckMate -914 Trial Evaluating Opdivo Plus Yervoy as Adjuvant Treatment of Localized Renal Cell Carcinoma

Bristol Myers Squibb (NYSE: BMY) today announced that Part A of the Phase 3 CheckMate -914 trial, evaluating Opdivo (nivolumab) plus Yervoy (ipilimumab) as an adjuvant treatment for patients with localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC) who have undergone full or partial removal of the kidney and who are at moderate or high risk of relapse, did not meet the primary endpoint of disease-free survival (DFS) as assessed by Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR). The safety profile was consistent with previously reported studies of the Opdivo plus Yervoy combination in solid tumors.

"Even with notable progress in the treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma, there are still limited treatment options available for patients with localized disease," said Dana Walker, M.D., M.S.C.E., vice president, development program lead, genitourinary cancers, Bristol Myers Squibb. " Opdivo and Opdivo -based combinations have shown survival benefits in several earlier-stage and advanced cancers, including genitourinary tumors, and we are disappointed that the final analysis of CheckMate -914 Part A did not show this same benefit for the post-surgical treatment of patients with localized RCC. Nonetheless, we are dedicated to continuing research and advancing cancer care for all patients with RCC."
