Lexaria Changes Brand Name and Clarifies Hemp Environment
Lexaria Announces Name Change of PoViva Tea to ViPova(TM) Tea, and Provides Information on Hemp-Based Industry
Kelowna, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 17, 2014 / Lexaria Corp. (LXRP) (CSE:LXX) (the “Company”) announces that effective immediately, it’s 51%-owned company formerly known as PoViva Tea, will now operate with the trade name of ViPova(TM) Tea. Selling our products under the name of ViPova(TM) is a branding strategy undertaken to ensure long term protection of intellectual rights.
The name change does not affect ownership, operational or any other material issues. However the name change has delayed the product launch by 1-2 weeks, so that ViPova(TM) Tea is now expected to be available to be ordered by consumers around the first week of January.
Both Lexaria and ViPova(TM)also wish to clarify some important distinctions about the Cannabidiol(CBD)-from-hemp industry within which ViPova(TM) operates. Hemp based CBD is legal in all 50 states, as are hemp-based food products that can be purchased from national retailers like Whole Foods or Costco, and many regional food stores. Popular hemp food products include hemp cereal, seeds, milk, and oil.
Hemp based products contain very low thresholds of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) below government-imposed limits of less than 0.3%. At the same time, the CBD within hemp is NOT psychoactive and does not create feelings of euphoria. Hemp is grown legally in countries like Canada, England, New Zealand and parts of Europe, and is legally imported into the USA from these and other countries.
ViPova(TM) uses only legal CBD oil extracts, grown from legal hemp in nations where it is legal to do so, in ViPova(TM)-branded tea. ViPova(TM) uses its patent-pending process to infuse concentrated amounts of CBD within lipids in its tea, providing more bioactivity and comfort to the body during the absorption process. Only ViPova(TM) has this ground-breaking technology for CBD/lipid infusion.
ViPova(TM) has not entered, and has no plans to enter, the medical marijuana market whether located within the USA or in any other country. ViPova(TM) is building a new company and product line focused exclusively on legal CBD products, which at this time are available only within the United States.
Lexaria’s shares are quoted in the USA with symbol LXRP and in Canada with symbol LXX. The company searches for projects that could provide potential above-market returns.
