LOS ANGELES and DESERT HOT SPRINGS, Calif. — via InvestorWire — Grapefruit USA, Inc. (OTCQB: GPFT) (“Grapefruit” or the “Company”), an innovative California-based cannabiotech company, is pleased to announce that its licensed distribution partner Medz Cannabis has filed a Notice of New Cannabis Product (“NNCP”) with Health Canada on Grapefruit’s behalf. Approval of the NNCP by Health Canada will enable Grapefruit to sell its patented Hourglass™ Time Release THC+CBD-Infused Topical Delivery Cream to licensed retail outlets throughout Canada.
Health Canada is the Canadian federal government department that is responsible for national health policy. It approves and oversees the production of all cannabis products and is the licensing authority for all companies involved in the cannabis industry. Health Canada requires that all cannabis products meet federal regulatory requirements before they can be sold in Canada. Under Canada’s Federal Cannabis Regulatory scheme, Health Canada must be notified of a company’s intent to sell a cannabis product that has not previously been sold in the country. Approval of the NNCP is a mandatory prerequisite to the launch of Grapefruit’s Hourglass technology-based products in Canada. Accordingly, Grapefruit’s NNCP has been submitted to Health Canada in anticipation of its approval and Grapefruit’s subsequent sales launch of Hourglass technology-based THC and CBD products in Canada in 2022.
Grapefruit believes its Hourglass™ THC/CBD delivery cream system is a truly disruptive technology that has fundamentally changed the way humans safely ingest THC, CBD and other cannabinoids to enjoy their unique holistic benefits without the dangers of smoking and oral ingestion. A simple application of Grapefruit’s Hourglass™ THC/CBD/cannabinoid cream is all that is needed for Hourglass users to obtain the full-body entourage effects and related benefits of THC, CBD and a wide array of other beneficial cannabinoids. The disruptive Hourglass delivery system enables humans, for the first time, to effectively use a variety of cannabis products in a healthy fashion. Simply put, Hourglass works without the associated health risks from smoking or orally ingesting THC and CBD.
Bradley J. Yourist, Grapefruit’s CEO and co-founder, commented, “We are pleased to launch our Canadian Hourglass initiative. We are confident that Canadians who wish to enjoy the holistic benefits of THC/CBD and other cannabinoids without smoking or eating them will embrace Hourglass THC/CBD/cannabinoid cream.”
