Lexaria Introduces TurboCBD™ Brand of High Absorption Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Capsules

KELOWNA, BC--(Marketwired - March 22, 2017) - Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCQB: LXRP) (CSE: LXX) (CSE: LXX.CN) (CNSX: LXX) (the "Company" or "Lexaria") announces the introduction of the TurboCBD™ brand of technologically enhanced, high absorption full spectrum hemp oil capsules. Lexaria's TurboCBD™ capsules are specially formulated with the finest American Ginseng and Ginkgo Biloba for support of enhanced focus and memory, and reduced stress and fatigue.

TurboCBD™ capsules utilize Lexaria's patented absorption technology and are triple tested for purity. They are made without the use of organic solvents and leave no hemp oil aftertaste. They are vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, nut-free and made in the USA. They will soon be offered for sale through California medical cannabis dispensaries and other select locations as the perfect complement to any cannabis regimen.

Lexaria's TurboCBD™ capsules are designed to work with the physiology of the human gastrointestinal system where minute quantities of long chain fatty acids like sunflower oil, combined in each serving of TurboCBD™ capsules, are thoroughly and quickly absorbed into the circulatory system for maximum effectiveness. In vitro and human focus study testing has shown increases in CBD absorption using Lexaria's technology by as much as 5-10 times more than conventional preparations. Those studies also demonstrated rapid onset of action in as little as 15 minutes.

Lexaria intends to showcase its TurboCBD™ capsules at the upcoming 2017 World Medical Marijuana Business Conference & Expo in Pittsburgh on April 21 and 22, which is expected to attract over 8,000 cannabis professionals including 1,200 physicians interested in the sector.

Lexaria is further researching other capsule formulations utilizing its patented absorption technology, each of which would be uniquely formulated to address specific market demands. Testing with Lexaria's technology has shown equally good improvements in enhancing absorption and rapidity of action when working with THC as shown for CBD, and Lexaria continues to develop and seek opportunities to lever its technology for THC product applications through licensees in the USA, Canada and internationally.
