SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Jan 3, 2017) - CFN Media Group ("CFN Media"), the leading agency and digital media network dedicated to legal cannabis, today announced that Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQB: LXRP) (CNSX: LXX) has engaged CFN Media to conduct a 90-day branding and market visibility program beginning January 3rd, 2017.

"Lexaria has patented a cannabinoid delivery technology, aimed at the fast-growing edibles and extract markets, that significantly increases bioavailability while improving taste and time of onset," said Frank Lane, President of CFN Media. "With several licensing agreements in place and products for sale in the US, the company has validated the technology in the market and was recently granted its first cannabis patent, and has also filed for patent protection in 42 countries around the world.
