About Lexaria Bioscience Corp.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp.'s proprietary drug delivery technology, DehydraTECH™, improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) enter the bloodstream by promoting healthier oral ingestion methods and increasing the effectiveness of fat-soluble active molecules, thereby lowering overall dosing. The Company's technology can be applied to many different ingestible product formats, including foods, beverages, oral suspensions, tablets, and capsules. DehydraTECH has repeatedly demonstrated since 2016 with cannabinoids and nicotine the ability to increase bio-absorption by up to 5-10x, reduce time of onset from 1 - 2 hours to minutes, and mask unwanted tastes; and is planned to be further evaluated for orally administered bioactive molecules, including anti-virals, cannabinoids, vitamins, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and nicotine. Lexaria has licensed DehydraTECH to multiple companies, including a world-leading tobacco producer, for the development of smokeless, oral-based nicotine products and for use in industries that produce cannabinoid beverages, edibles, and oral products. Lexaria operates a licensed in-house research laboratory and holds a robust intellectual property portfolio with 18 patents granted and approximately 60 patents pending worldwide.

Founded in 2019, Amari was launched by outdoor enthusiast Eric Gricus for people like him. People who love to be active, but who may have noticed as they get older that the spirit is willing, but the body often has aches and pains and soreness after a day of hiking, skiing, or rafting. To create the product, Eric leveraged his more than 10 years' experience working with early-stage CPG companies and commercializing research from a university setting. Amari formulas blend science and technology to provide authentic, plant-based remedies that deliver tangible benefits to support a lifestyle of wellness and vitality while being rooted in transparency and extensive quality controls.
