TITUSVILLE, Fla., Aug. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Apple Rush Company, Inc. (OTC PINK: APRU) (the “company”) announces that its proprietary all natural CBD emulsion has been put into the production of Lickinghole Creek’s One Lion 16 ounce sparkling water. 

Lisa Pumphrey, CEO of Lickinghole Creek stated, “Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery began as an agribusiness dream to protect habitat and open space with a for profit business model that was replicable by small farmers to support small family farm survival.  The legalization of hemp in the US and Virginia opened an amazing opportunity for small farmers and we jumped at the opportunity to support the industry.  Lickinghole Creek cross-branded with First Necessity and work together in collaboration with Botanaway and APRU to educate about and to practice sustainable business and farming practices to build healthy soil for a healthy civilization. In partnership with Richard Booker, and Alex Rebel Marley, First Necessity launches the One Lion movement to spread the message that we are One Lion, One World together. Let’s grow together.  With APRU’s advanced technology, Botanaway’s large distribution network, and Lickinghole Creeks proven ability to create world class products, we believe One Lion CBD sparkling water is an incredible beginning to grow and showcase positive global impact business collaborations.”

David Derian, CEO of Botanaway said, “Our passion for delivering the highest quality products for consumers to integrate into their every day lifestyle has led us to become the distribution partner of Lickinghole Creek’s One Lion.” 

Tony Torgerud, CEO of Apple Rush commented, “We are excited that our partnership with Lickinghole Creek Brewery to produce this sparkling beverage was aided by David Derian of Botanaway. We have worked on the formulation for our all-natural CBD emulsion for several months and have been chosen as the supplier by Lickinghole Creek’s One Lion. The product is ready and will hit stores shelves over the coming days.  The official launch of One Lion will be at the Big Industry show in Miami this week and Apple Rush is excited to be a part of it.”
