LOS ANGELES and DESERT HOT SPRINGS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 21, 2020 / Grapefruit USA, Inc. (OTC PINK:GPFT), a California based cannabis distribution and manufacturing company ("Grapefruit" or the "Company") is announcing today that it has made significant progress in the development of its patented THC + Cannabinoid infused "Patchless Patch™" time release topical cream. The topical cream was tested by Grapefruit's exclusive California State compliance testing laboratory, CannaSafe, of Los Angeles, and the testing results demonstrate that the infused topical cream contains consistent levels of THC and CBD in concentrations that make Grapefruit's patented cream a ‘full spectrum' product. The Company's test results show that the sample cream contained the targeted mixture of 20.67 mg/g of total THC; 11.58 mg/g of CBDs and total cannabinoids of 37.41 mg/g. The certificate of analysis and testing panel included CBD, CBG, CBN and CBDa. The THC cannabinoid panel was composed of Delta-9, Delta-8 THC and trace amounts of THCV.
With respect to the test results of Grapefruit's time-release THC + CBD infused cream, Bradley J. Yourist, Grapefruit CEO, stated, "The test results have made it clear that we have successfully ‘packed' the entire cannabis flower into our patented time-release topical cream thereby providing our users with both a unique cannabinoid profile and THC creating a desirable synergistic entourage effect.
Our patented topical cannabis cream has solved the previously unsolvable problem of obtaining efficient skin absorption of THC and other cannabinoids through the skin thereby allowing our customers to enjoy the unique experience of a sustained and steady delivery of THC and the other cannabinoids over time flowing from a one-time application to the user's skin. No other cannabis product on the market can state that they have a patented time release THC/cannabinoid delivery mechanism. Grapefruit thanks CannaSafe's staff chemists for working so closely with our team to develop an accurate test which has now proven our initial concept is safe for the retail marketplace.
Additionally, we have learned that a given cannabinoid profile remains very consistent ‘before and after' our honey oil is encapsulated into the patented nano-silica delivery mechanism with very little loss of cannabinoids in the process. This development will allow Grapefruit to efficiently include specific Cannabinoids in various concentration levels to create narrowly focused topical cream products for our retailers and customers. The potential variations of THC/Cannibinoids to be infused in our patented topical cream are endless, and our goal is to be able to ‘fine tune' our customer's overall experience to his or her specific requirements using our patented delivery mechanism. Grapefruit's customers should be able to design their own custom blends, as a result of Grapefruit's breakthrough technology.
We are on track to introduce this unique patented product to the retail marketplace by the end of the second quarter which furthers the goal of becoming an innovative industry leader."
