Vancouver, British Columbia –TheNewswire -Canada, August 3, 2023 – Global Compliance Applications Corp. (“GCAC” or the “Company”) (CSE:APP)(FSE:2FA)(OTC:FUAPF),a leading chain-of-custody compliance and data platform, is pleased to announce a licensing agreement with BENELEAVES LIMITED , a friends & family-owned and licensed Cannabis processing business located in Columbus, OH. Beneleaves is a licensed white-label producer in Ohio, offering its services to multiple premium cannabis brands, including renowned brands like Smokiez, Black Buddha Cannabis, Mary's Medicinals, Sugar-Free Gummies from Chew and Chill and several others. By leveraging the Uplift app and NFT coupons, BeneLeaves’s goal is to help provide discounts to the State’s veterans that are registered cannabis users and assist those veterans that have not started their cannabis journey with proper education.
A new study  published in Clinical Therapeutics found that 91% of military veterans who use medical cannabis said it has improved their quality of life. In addition, a U.S. House of Representatives amendment  was voted on last week to the federal National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would end the prohibition on VA providers helping veterans to access state-legal medical cannabis programs.
We are a patient-focused business that wants to help Veterans with their cannabis wellness journey. Using the Uplift app to reach our patients wherever they are in the State and help provide financial savings and inspiration was aligned with our values.Bill Williams, BeneLeaves President
The Citizen Green Project  in partnership with veteran non-profit organizations, such as Veterans Ending the Stigma , created an initiative to provide free online education and discount NFT coupons for all veterans. The program, created by veterans for veterans, was initially launched in Canada and is now in Ohio with an eye on expanding to all legal medical cannabis states to service the 12M+ US vets.
As confirmed by recent studies, veterans are finding great relief in cannabis without resorting to more addictive products like alcohol. This is an opportunity for vets to get the support they need from brands they want.Brad Moore, GCAC CEO
BeneLeaves President Bill Williams noted “We are a patient-focused business that wants to help Veterans with their cannabis wellness journey. Using the Uplift app to reach our patients wherever they are in the State and help provide financial savings and inspiration was aligned with our values. We are excited to be part of this innovative program and help reach this community in a dignified and respectful manner. Coupons digitally placed in the free app of qualified patients enable them quickly to see savings available and reduce the time of hunting for discounts. In addition, the app enables us to hear anonymized feedback from the patient, which our brands will love.”
GCAC will receive a fixed percentage of the redeemed Uplift coupon value whenever a customer uses a coupon at participating dispensary locations. Beneleaves products are in over 90+% of Ohio dispensaries.
GCAC CEO Bradley Moore stated “Having the opportunity to work with Bill Williams and the great Beneleaves team will help us drive quality medicine to those that most need it and gave so much for our country. As confirmed by recent studies, veterans are finding great relief in cannabis without resorting to more addictive products like alcohol. This is an opportunity for vets to get the support they need from brands they want.”
