Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, August 10, 2023 — Global Compliance Applications Corp. (“GCAC” or the “Company”) (CSE: APP, FSE: 2FA, OTCQB: FUAPF), a chain-of-custody compliance and data platform, is delighted to unveil a significant achievement. Reporting 121 new downloads of the Efixii Uplift consumer app since May 2023 underscores the need for US veterans to have one source for consistent, safe affordable CBD and medical cannabis. These consumer downloads are part of the Citizen Green Project's initial beta in Ohio, with the Company ready to expand nationally, starting with Michigan, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina.
The Efixii Uplift app and its NFT couponing program have emerged as a game-changer for both US and Canadian veterans. This app offers exclusive discounts on CBD and medical cannabis, acknowledging the contributions and sacrifices of veterans and addressing their healthcare needs. In a landscape where the average per-ounce cost of medical cannabis in the United States stands at $318.74 , and the average monthly spending amounts to $304.9  as of November 2022, the Efixii Uplift app significantly mitigates the financial burden on veterans, fostering a positive impact on their quality of life.
A remarkable 18% average retailer discount on cannabis  translates into substantial savings for US veterans using the Efixii Uplift blockchain-powered app. For every redeemed NFT discount, an average of 30% of the face of the coupon is earned in revenue by the Company, ensuring a sustainable source of support for veterans' initiatives.
Afghanistan and Iraq veterans overwhelmingly embrace medical cannabis with an impressive 74% support rate . This statistic gains greater significance when considering the substantial number of soldiers who served in these war zones, estimated at up to 3 million . This profound level of support underscores the transformative need for The Citizen Green Project.

The beta program in Ohio exemplifies the ripple effect of change. In a state where 21,000 veterans are registered for medical cannabis, out of a total veteran population of 680,310 (111K+ of those having served Post 9-11) , the potential for positive change is palpable. The Efixii Uplift app's impact transcends numbers, touching lives, and elevating the well-being of veterans on a national scale.
GCAC CEO Brad Moore, a veteran himself, shared, "I am profoundly pleased to witness the tangible results of bringing the Citizen Green Project to the US veteran community. With each Uplift app download, GCAC can generate $197 per year for every veteran who embraces the app, unlocking a vast landscape of potential. When combined with the growing number of brands joining ,these initial 100 downloads, a mere fraction of the veterans we can reach, underscore the immense scale of the opportunity."
