LOS ANGELES and DESERT HOT SPRINGS, Calif., May 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via InvestorWire – Grapefruit USA, Inc. (OTCQB: GPFT) (“Grapefruit” or the “Company”), a diversified California-based cannabis and hemp company, today announces it has commenced accepting cryptocurrency as payment at its recently launched e-commerce store: www.hourglassonlinestore.com
Grapefruit’s customers who prefer to use Bitcoin, Ether, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Dogecoin or Monero will now be able to “convert” their crypto of choice at checkout to make purchases at the Company’s new e-commerce store.
With respect to the Company’s novel acceptance of cryptocurrencies, Bradley J. Yourist, GPFT CEO, commented, “Grapefruit’s THC-free hemp-derived CBD Hourglass technology-driven products, just like cryptocurrencies and the blockchain, are the future, and Grapefruit’s acceptance of crypto as payment demonstrates GPFT’s outreach to the explosively growing demographic of crypto early adopters and other ‘younger’ buyers who also seek the holistic benefits of Grapefruit’s THC-free, hemp-derived Hourglass time-release CBD products. Everyone, young and old, experiences sore muscles from working out and other aches and pains, and our THC-free hemp-derived CBD Hourglass-powered products can provide a solution for all demographics – whether they choose to pay by American Express Platinum or Dogecoin on our accurate and secure payment platform. We envision the days after Sen. Schumer succeeds in his efforts to decriminalize THC and customers from the 50 states and throughout the world will be able to use crypto to pay for purchases of our full-spectrum THC Hourglass time-release technology-powered products through our e-commerce platform.”
Grapefruit is devoted to selling only the highest-quality, plant-based, independently tested and reliable cannabis and hemp products and will make no claims unless clinically validated. All of Grapefruit’s THC-free hemp-derived CBD-based products to be marketed and sold on the new e-commerce website will be thoroughly tested and include a QR coded certificate of analysis, which will provide consumers with a complete list of third-party-verified ingredients certifying each product’s cannabinoid content, purity and safety. The Company does not recommend investing in cryptocurrencies without doing your own due diligence and obtaining the advice of an investment advisor or other counsel.
