Enertopia Provides Canadian Medical Marihuana Update

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 11:00 AM on Friday, June 12th, 2015

  • Signed a binding LOI to sell its wholly owned sub Thor Pharma Corp along with the MMPR application number 10MMPR0610
  • Burlington MMPR license application will continue in the application process under new ownership
  • Joint Venture could receive up to $1,500,000 in milestone payments upon the Burlington facility becoming licensed under the MMPR program

VANCOUVER, BC / June 12 2015 – Enertopia Corporation (ENRT-OTCBB) (TOP-CSE) (the “Company” or “Enertopia”) announces updates with respect to the Burlington and The Green Canvas Joint Ventures.

Enertopia has signed a binding LOI to sell its wholly owned sub Thor Pharma Corp along with the MMPR application number 10MMPR0610. The Burlington MMPR license application will continue in the application process under new ownership. The Joint Venture could receive up to $1,500,000 in milestone payments upon the Burlington facility becoming licensed under the MMPR program. These monies would be split approximately 50% with Lexaria Corp. Subsequent with this deal the Burlington Joint Venture between Enertopia and Lexaria which was entered into on May 27, 2014 has been terminated due to the pending sale of the project. The Enertopia and Lexaria Master Joint Venture Agreement entered into on March 5, 2014 is still in good standing as both companies continue to look at synergistic opportunities to increase shareholder value.

After thorough examination of the Medical Marihuana industry in Canada and current participants within the sector, it is apparent that raising capital to push projects forward is not currently in the best interests of the Company. Therefore, the Company and The Green Canvas have mutually agreed to terminate their Joint Venture and 6,400,000 shares of Enertopia held in escrow with respect to The Green Canvas Joint Venture will be returned back to corporate treasury and cancelled.

Enertopia is and will continue to be an advocate for medical cannabis for patients and applauds the landmark Supreme Court of Canada ruling on June 11, 2015. This ruling upheld the rights of legal MMAR and MMPR medical cannabis patients in Canada. The unanimous ruling allows valid legal medical patients to choose how they want to administer medical cannabis by the method that is best suited to their medical condition and body absorption. This is looks to be a very positive development for the Canadian medical marihuana sector going forward, as the Federal Government will have to modify or implement a program for the administration of other forms of medical cannabis consumption.

Enertopia will continue to look for opportunities in the MMJ and other sectors that offer the best return for all stakeholders with the least amount of dilution to the Company. The Company looks forward to utilizing its learned knowledge in the MMJ sector and will continue on its path of becoming a licensed producer.

“The Company has completed two milestones in building a stable foundation with its ownership of 1,000,000 shares in Lexaria Corp which has just filed PCT for patent pending bio technologies and the potential of approximately $750,000 in future payments from the Burlington application,” Stated President Robert McAllister

The Company looks forward to providing information via social media, website and press releases as news and events become known over the coming weeks.

Lexaria Intellectual Property Update

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:24 AM on Friday, May 15th, 2015


KELOWNA, BC / May 15, 2015 / Lexaria Corp. (OTCQB: LXRP) (CSE: LXX) (the “Company”) provides the following update and information regarding its patent-pending technology; how it relates to the delivery of certain active ingredients such as CBD and THC, and how it relates also to market demand.

Lexaria has caused to be filed on April 28, 2015 and May 14, 2015, the latest in a line of provisional patent applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office regarding its technology that were originally filed beginning in June, 2014. Lexaria’s new patent-pending technology is directed to food and beverage compositions infused with cannabinoids – e.g., THC and/or CBD – that provide enhanced cannabinoid oral bioavailability. We expect the United States Patent and Trademark Office to publish our provisional patent applications roughly in December 2015.

Lexaria’s proprietary process infuses lipids within foods and beverages with cannabinoids and produces compositions with synergistically enhanced cannabinoid absorption and bioavailability. The cannabinoid infused food and beverage compositions have the added benefit of masking the inherent unpleasant taste of cannabinoids to allow for better patient compliance with therapeutically administered cannabinoids.

It is important to understand certain facts:

Smoked or inhaled cannabinoids have reported bioavailabilities ranging from 2-56%, with an average of about 30% (Huestis (2007) Chem. Biodivers. 4:1770-1804; McGilveray (2005) Pain Res. Manag. 10 Suppl. A:15A – 22A). This variability is mainly due to differences in smoking dynamics. Cannabinoids that are absorbed through the mucous membranes in the mouth (buccomucosal application) have bioavailabilities of around 13% (Karschner et al. (2011) Clin. Chem. 57:66-75). By contrast, when cannabinoids are ingested, bioavailability is typically reduced to about 6% (Karschner et al. (2011) Clin. Chem. 57:66-75).

Lexaria’s patent-pending cannabinoid lipid-infusion technology is based in part on the goal of achieving much higher cannabinoid bioavailability than conventional means of oral cannabinoid ingestion.

Oral bioavailability into or approaching the range typical of smoked or inhaled cannabinoids would be potentially disruptive to the entire medical marijuana sector because it would offer patients an efficient option to reduce or even eliminate the need for smoking or inhalation delivery while simultaneously improving conventional edible cannabinoid formats.

To this end, the Company will undertake certain laboratory testing in the coming months to further characterize potentially transformative aspects of the technology and will report the outcome upon completion.

Benefits of the patent-pending technology, include:

1) A positive social health outcome through reduction of smoking of cannabinoids;
2) Improved confidence in consistent delivery of THC or CBD through oral ingestion;
3) Lower cost to consumers relative to conventional edible formats through higher rate of active ingredient delivery;
4) Easy and convenient active ingredient delivery through many readily available common everyday foods;
5) A disruptive competitive advantage for Lexaria versus any company that delivers THC or CBD through any other format, including traditional smoking.

By their nature, new inventions are unpredictable and not always entirely understood in advance. Many complex technologies are being pursued by the broader food and drug industries in relation to more effective delivery of drugs and other ingredients because their traditional oral bioavailability may be poor. Solid lipid nanoparticles, for example, have demonstrated improvements in bioavailability of some Class II, III, and IV drugs as much as 2-25 fold as seen below:

“The US FDA recommended high fat meals for food-effect studies because such fatty meals (800-1000 cal, 50%-65% fat, 25%-30% carbohydrates and 15%-20% proteins) affect GI physiology and maximize drug transfer into the systemic circulation.” (Food and Drug Administration, Guidance for industry: food-effect bioavailability and fed bioequivalence studies, food and drug administration. www.fda.gov)

Maximizing bioavailability is a common aim throughout the food, pharmaceutical and drug industries since efficiencies in delivering active ingredients also deliver many benefits.

Lexaria Updates Operations

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:28 AM on Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

KELOWNA, BC /April 7, 2015 / Lexaria, Corp. (OTCQB:LXRP) (CSE:LXX) (the “Company”) provides the following updates.

VIPOVA TEA

Lexaria is pleased to announce the manufacturing of delicious ViPova(TM) tea in conventional tea-bags has begun: over 80% of all tea sold in North America is sold within teabags. Simplicity of use should make it easier for consumers to achieve more consistent portions and cannabidiol per serving. Lexaria now has the opportunity to offer our tea in smaller retail packages at lower cost to our customers, offering the potential of broader consumer acceptance and wider market penetration.

For those who want to try our tea for the first time, but are reluctant to purchase the existing larger tin for $99, we will for the first time be able to offer much lower prices for smaller packages. We are currently awaiting delivery of our new packaging options which will be ready for retail sale in either April or May. Although the larger tin still offers the best value per serving, Lexaria expects lower entry-level retail prices to make ViPova(TM) Tea available for enjoyment by everyone.

LEXARIA WEBSITE

The new Lexaria website at lexariaenergy.com is under construction and expected to be operational later this month. The new site is focused primarily on the food sciences sector in which we now operate, and will provide more thorough information regarding our patent-pending infusion technology. The new website will be updated regularly with important sector-specific information, and the Company will provide additional information when the new site is ready to launch.

TEA’S GOT A NEW FIREND…

Lexaria is soon launching a new print ad campaign featuring the slogan, “Tea’s Got a new Friend“, a cheeky and fun ad campaign that is sure to provoke conversation. In limited US circulation to begin, this ad campaign will begin within the next 30 days and is expected to broaden as the year unfolds.

According to the Tea Association of the USA Inc, Americans consumed over 79 billion servings of tea in 2012, its popularity far outstripping any alternative health sector. On any given day, over 150 million Americans consume tea, and 84% of all tea consumed is black tea. Lexaria is confident that its unique and proprietary CBD-infusion process will generate success in this very large market.

Clinical trials high on list for medical marijuana community

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 2:42 PM on Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

The medical marijuana movement is asking the scientific community to make examining the therapeutic potential of cannabis in much more depth a priority, cannabis experts from North America and the UK declared on 14 February at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) annual meeting in California. But the drug’s controlled status is continuing to slow efforts to investigate the myriad compounds in the plant.

The panellists said the evidence is clear that cannabinoids can treat different types of pain effectively. In addition, they cited some evidence that cannabinoids help with neurological conditions like epilepsy. There is also very early clinical trial data suggesting that the molecule cannabidiol (CBD) has an antipsychotic effect and some evidence that it could help with anxiety disorders.

Although cannabis use is associated with things like short-term memory loss and learning problems, the experts presented data showing that once use is stopped those effects disappear within a few days. They also said there is no proof of any long-term neurocognitive effects of chronic marijuana use on the adult brain, although there is some cause for concern about heavy use by adolescents.

The question of whether the compounds have untoward effects remains unclear due to insufficient research. The field is stalled because large clinical trials require the deep pockets of the pharmaceutical sector, but a major barrier is the lack of intellectual property around some of these compounds. ‘They are old drugs, they are hard to lock in patents, and that makes it difficult for someone to invest significantly into these kinds of research studies that might not have the long-term payback,’ explained Mark Ware, who runs the pain research unit at McGill University, Canada.

However, possession of cannabis is still illegal in most US states making it a difficult drug to work with in the clinic. Igor Grant, a neuropsychiatrist who directs the cannabis research centre at the University of California, San Diego, US, has conducted seven clinical trials that involved smoked or inhaled cannabis and all required that he obtain regulatory approvals from three separate agencies before he could even acquire the cannabis for the studies.

Research marijuana for the US is grown by University of Mississippi under government licence. Once investigators clear all of the approvals, they can request the study drug from the NIH in the form of cigarettes containing different concentrations of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC – the main psychoactive constituent of cannabis.

Cannabis in Canada

Cannabis research is far easier to pursue in Canada where there is a regulated government programme. The country controls cannabis differently to other drugs, arguing that it fits neither under natural health product regulations that govern the use of herbal medicines, nor under the pharmaceutical drug regulations.

Some of the Canadian companies that grow cannabis under licence are now funding clinical trials to try and develop a drug, according to Ware. ‘The money is out there, but the trick is to get these kinds of pilot studies – proof-of-concept studies – done that encourage people to do larger-scale trials,’ he said.

The experts agreed that more information is needed about therapeutic use of cannabis. To help fill this gap, the provincial ethics committee in Quebec recently directed that all patients cleared to use cannabis for medical reasons must agree to be part on an ongoing study. Ware has been tapped to help set up a Quebec-wide registry that will allow these patients to be tracked anonymously for adverse events, as well as for things like pain, spasticity, appetite level and mood. The registry is expected to go live by the end of March.

In the US, there has been much media and public interest in a strain of medical marijuana first developed to treat a child suffering from repeated seizures, dubbed Charlotte’s Web, which is high in CBD but does not contain any psychoactive compounds. But Ware is troubled by the phenomenon of parents and patients seeking out CBD therapeutics. ‘We don’t know where the cannabidiol is coming from; there is a tremendous kind of mythology about the stuff coming from eastern Europe or China,’ he said. Hemp farmers in Canada are being approached to produce CBD and are charging huge amounts of money, he added.

The development of such medicinal products is complicated by the fact that cannabis contains over 100 different ingredients that may be bioactive. This flies in the face of the model followed by regulatory agencies like the US Food and Drug Administration that are set up to deal with single molecules rather than complex mixtures.

Lexaria Updates Operations

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:45 AM on Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

KELOWNA, BC / February 4, 2015 / Lexaria, Corp. (OTCQB:LXRP) (CSE:LXX) (the “Company”) provides the following three operational updates.

CREDIT CARDS

Lexaria is pleased to announce it is now accepting Mastercard and Visa credit card payments at its www.vipova.com e-commerce site for sales of its patent-pending CBD-infused black tea across America. Previously, customers could only transact with the ViPova website with checks and money orders, and while these payment options remain for those who prefer them, Vipova’s ability to accept major credit cards will shorten delivery times and provide the ease of ordering that customers expect.

Given the increase in web traffic Vipova.com has experienced, Lexaria believes the ability to use credit cards should lead to an increase in sales volumes. Customers across the US can also call 1-888-976-8482 from 9AM to 7PM EST Mon-Fri to place their orders.

FOCUS GROUPS

Lexaria has begun holding focus group sessions to introduce and evaluate its CBD-infused black tea. Our first focus group was held January 29 when 14 people were introduced to ViPova Tea. The session provided a chance for potential consumers to learn about the tea and the properties of cannabidiol infusion, and proved immensely valuable to the Company to learn about consumer preferences, needs, likes and dislikes.

Lexaria is very pleased at the enthusiastic response and comments received. Participants had the opportunity to meet senior representatives of ViPova, and provide detailed commentary that the Company will use to fine-tune its products and marketing as 2015 unfolds.

The next focus group will be held during the next several days and the Company expects to continue to hold similar focus group meetings in the weeks and months to come.

STRATEGIC ADVISOR

Lexaria has engaged Sequoia Partners Inc for strategic fiscal advisement and for the development of various strategies to assist the Company to realize its project objectives. Lexaria will be working closely with the Managing Partners of Sequoia to pursue its interests. The Managing Partners have extensive and long lasting relationships in the finance, health care and pharmaceutical industries that are expected to be beneficial to the Company.

Sequoia has been granted 250,000 stock options and will receive a monthly fee of CDN$5,000 for the next six months.
