Abstract

Aspects described herein relate to food and beverage compositions infused with lipophilic active agents and methods of use for the treatment of a variety of disorders. More particularly, aspects described herein relate to food and beverage compositions infused with lipophilic active agents such as cannabinoids, nicotine, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), and vitamins, that provide enhanced bioavailability of the lipophilic active agents in a subject, and that mask unpleasant tastes of lipophilic active agents.

Claim(s)

1. Lipophilic active agent infused tea leaves, coffee beans, or cocoa powder comprising: (a) a therapeutically effective amount of a cannabinoid and at least one additional lipophilic active agent; (b) a bioavailability enhancing agent comprising an edible oil comprising long chain fatty acids, wherein the bioavailability of the cannabinoid in a subject is at least 1.5 times greater than the bioavailability of the cannabinoid in the subject in the absence of the bioavailability enhancing agent; and (c) tea leaves, coffee beans, or cocoa powder; wherein the lipophilic active agent infused tea leaves, coffee beans, or cocoa powder are obtainable by the steps of: (i) contacting the tea leaves, coffee beans, or cocoa powder with an oil comprising the cannabinoid, the at least one additional lipophilic active agent, and the bioavailability enhancing agent; and (ii) dehydrating the tea leaves, coffee beans, or cocoa powder, thereby producing the lipophilic active agent infused tea leaves, coffee beans, or cocoa powder; wherein the additional lipophilic active agent is selected from the group consisting of nicotine, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), and a vitamin.;
10. A lipophilic active agent infused beverage product obtainable by the steps of: (a) contacting tea leaves, coffee beans, or cocoa powder with an oil comprising a cannabinoid, an additional lipophilic active agent, and a bioavailability enhancing agent; (b) dehydrating the coffee beans or cocoa powder, thereby producing lipophilic active agent infused coffee beans or cocoa powder; and (c) steeping the lipophilic active agent infused tea leaves, coffee beans, or cocoa powder in a liquid, thereby producing the lipophilic active agent infused beverage product; wherein the lipophilic active agent infused tea leaves, coffee beans, or cocoa powder comprise: (i) a therapeutically effective amount of the cannabinoid and the additional lipophilic active agent; (ii) a bioavailability enhancing agent comprising an edible oil comprising long chain fatty acids, wherein the bioavailability of the cannabinoid in a subject is at least 1.5 times greater than the bioavailability of the cannabinoid in the subject in the absence of the bioavailability enhancing agent; and (iii) coffee beans or cocoa powder; wherein the additional lipophilic active agent is selected from the group consisting of nicotine, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), and a vitamin.
