InvestorNewsBreaks – Grapefruit USA Inc. (GPFT) CEO Releases Comment Regarding NFL’s $1M Award to Study Cannabis, CBD to Manage Pain

Grapefruit USA (OTCQB: GPFT), an innovative California-based cannabiotech company, has made comments on the recent news that the National Football League (“NFL”) awarded $1 million to two teams of medical researchers: one from the University of San Diego and the second team from the University of Regina in Canada. The funds are earmarked to study the effects of cannabinoids, including cannabis, on pain management and neuroprotection from concussion in NFL players. Specifically, the San Diego-based group will investigate the effects of cannabinoids on pain caused by and recovery from sports-related injuries in NFL players. The University of Regina medical team will investigate the use of naturally produced cannabinoids to manage pain and concussions, which occur routinely in contact sports such as organized football. “The NFL’s $1 million research grant is a very forward-looking move by the league to foster the use of cannabinoids to manage pain and concussions,” said Grapefruit cofounder and CEO Bradley J. Yourist in the press release. “The NFL is wisely following Grapefruit’s efforts to investigate the efficacy of cannabinoids in the fight against sports-originated pain and concussion. While we are gratified to have these NFL initiatives validate Grapefruit’s efforts to research the use of cannabinoids to solve the problems of sports-related pain and concussion, our customers’ experiences inform us that Grapefruit’s patented Hourglass THC/CBD and CBD only products provide our customers with the holistic benefits of cannabinoids without facing the dangers of smoking or eating cannabinoid-based products. It is gratifying to see the NFL follow Grapefruit’s lead.”
