Item 7.01

Regulation FD Disclosure

 

On May 6, 2021, Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (“Lexaria”) announced that its three new DehydraTECH 2.0 formulations that formed part of its HYPER-A21-1 study, delivered improved performance when compared to both Lexaria’s original DehydraTECH 1.0 and 2.0 concentration-matched formulations, as well as to a medium chain triglyceride (“MCT”) oil based control formulation. The study demonstrated that each of the new DehydraTECH 2.0 formulations delivered very high levels of CBD absorption into brain tissues, dwarfing the levels achieved with the MCT oil-based control formulation. The three new DehydraTECH 2.0 formulations delivered between 907%-1,737% more CBD into brain tissue than the MCT oil based control formulation, similar to the up to 1,937% increase over the MCT oil based control formulation announced previously for Lexaria’s original DehydraTECH 2.0 formulation.

 

On May 7, 2021 Lexaria announced the cancellation of 87,935 options of which an aggregate of 18,334 stock options had an exercise price of US$14.10; 23,334 stock options had an exercise price of US$10.20; and 46,267 stock options had an exercise price of US$9.60.

 

On May 12, 2021 Lexaria announced the receipt of its first patent grant in India which was issued on April 30, 2021 for its third patent family, Stable Ready-to-Drink Beverage Compositions Comprising Lipophilic Active Agents. This represents the second granted patent in this patent family, the first granted patent being issued in Australia. This India patent grant includes claims for use with a variety of ready-to-drink beverages and a wide range of lipophilic active agents, including NSAIDs (e.g., acetylsalicylic acid, ibuprofen, diclofenac, indomethacin, piroxicam), acetaminophen, fat soluble vitamins, nicotine and cannabinoids.
