Lexaria is accelerating its research focus on nicotine following its patent grant and is preparing formulations of edible forms of nicotine using the DehydraTECH™ technology. These formulations are currently completing quality control testing prior to in vivo absorption and tolerability testing. A third-party laboratory is expected to perform the first nicotine edible tests in February 2018. Imagine an edible nicotine-infused product that: masks unwanted tastes, eliminating the need for sugar-filled edibles; reduces the time of onset with effects felt within 15-20 minutes instead of up to an hour or more; avoids first-pass liver metabolism, which means fewer side effects; and increases bio-absorption by five to 10 times which equates to an inhaled delivery method - all while helping you quit smoking cigarettes.

The company’s proprietary platform allows for the infusion of nicotine molecules within a wide range of edible food ingredients or typical capsule formats, effectively opening the door for the creation of a new product category targeting the high-demand smoking cessation market ( While this research is in its early stages, the market implications of maximizing Lexaria’s patented molecular delivery method in such areas as nicotine delivery, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) and vitamins – all multibillion dollar industries – is significant. According to a 2016 report by Grand View Research, Inc., the global smoking cessation and nicotine de-addiction market is expected to reach over $21.8 billion by 2024. As Grand View reports, “The launch of… improved and innovative nicotine replacement therapy products is to serve as a high impact rendering driver for the growth of the smoking cessation and nicotine de-addiction market (”
