Outside of China, Lexaria is one of the world’s biggest holders of cannabis patents with eight patents already granted. The company currently holds four patents in the United States and four in Australia, covering aspects of its work to make beneficial drugs more palatable and effective. In addition, the company has further patent applications in process in more than 40 countries as part of a concerted strategy to expand its patent portfolio. This is made possible by the focused, tangible research and development being carried out by the company and is ultimately driven by the need to develop and control intangible assets.
Lexaria has disclosed it expects four more patents to be granted in 2018, bringing its total to twelve. Of note, all twelve of these are within a single patent family — and Lexaria expects patent success across all nine families of its current applications. Indeed the company recently revealed that it has seven more patent families in the works. Lexaria’s goal is to have some 200 patents pending or granted which, if achieved, could turn the organization into an IP behemoth in the global cannabis industry.
