Grapefruit USA (OTCQB: GPFT), an innovative California-based cannabiotech company, has executed a binding letter of intention (“LOI”) with Diagnostic Lab Corporation (“DLC”). The letter, which was entered into on June 30, 2022, calls for the two companies to jointly recapitalize Grapefruit and raise $12.5 million of debt financing, which includes $5.5 million already committed from a qualified construction. DLC is a diversified food and agriculture safety company. The funding will be used to complete construction of a cultivation, manufacturing and distribution facility; acquire DLC assets; apply for an FDA 510K approval for GPFT’s patented Hourglass(TM) time release Z-POD THC/CBD/cannabinoid infused delivery cream; and conduct a clinical study to measure the effects of the Hourglass delivery cream on pain and other symptoms suffered by individuals diagnosed with osteoarthritis. “Execution of this letter of intent between DLC and GPFT is the next step in Grapefruit’s evolution from a ‘me-too’ cannabis company to a medical, science-based, canna-focused biotech company that will develop and obtain regulatory approval for an ever-expanding line of proprietary cannabis products based on the company’s patented Hourglass technology,” said Grapefruit CEO and cofounder Bradley J. Yourist in the press release. “Construction of the Coachillin’ ‘mothership’ facility at the Coachillin’ Park will secure our balance sheet and provide a reliable source of reasonably priced pharma-quality cannabis flowers for raw material for THC Hourglass products and for distribution in both the U.S. and Canada, as appropriate under any given market circumstances. The 510K approval for the Hourglass technology will facilitate its rapid market acceptance throughout the United States as an approved medical device. Finally, our lab acquisition program will provide rapid revenue growth and expand the company’s cannabis industry footprint. The parties expect to finalize and execute the definitive agreement before the end of August 2022 and close the transaction shortly thereafter.”
