INGLEWOOD, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 14, 2016) - Green Cures & Botanical Distribution Inc. (OTC PINK: GRCU) ("Green Cures"), announced today Roberto Duran Champion Energy Shot as Iconic Beverages' first product.

Roberto Duran Champion Energy Shot's original flavor is the perfect refreshing flavor with a natural tropical punch edge. Packed with B-Vitamins, natural caffeine and flavors for a natural energy, this shot is sure to provide energy seekers the lift they are looking for. 

Carlo Vaccarezza, co-owner of Latin Blast who licensed Roberto Duran Energy Shot to GRCU stated today, "As a longtime friend and business associate of Roberto Duran, I'm very excited to have the opportunity to team up with Green Cures & Botanical Distribution to create an energy shot with the same kind of explosive energy Roberto Duran is known for. Roberto Duran's Champion Energy Shot is perfect under Iconic Beverages, as he is widely regarded as one of the greatest boxers of all time and was inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame and the International Boxing Hall of Fame." Mr. Vaccarezza further stated, "This is the perfect time to get this product out with Hands of Stone coming to theaters in late August 2016."

Joe Tragesser, GRCU's CEO stated, "This is the start of many great products for GRCU under Iconic Beverages. I am looking forward to working with Mr. Vaccarezza and his company Latin Blast to get this great energy shot to market. Roberto Duran is an 'Icon' in the boxing world, and we are excited to bring this product to the public. With Duran's movie, Hands of Stone coming out next month, we are excited the product will be available as it is now being manufactured and produced."

Panamanian patriot and relentless boxing veteran Roberto Duran's rugged determination promised his opponents fierce physical battles and guaranteed boxing fans a high energy, hard-hitting performance. Born in Guarare, Panama in 1951, Roberto Duran had a brief, but promising amateur career. Fueled by the income, a successful professional boxing career was offered to a then 16 year-old Duran. Duran's raw, explosive talent was the stuff legends are made of as he consistently brought in packed houses. At just 21, Duran won his first world title. That was just the beginning.

In an impressive career that spans five decades, Duran went on to be the WBC Lightweight Champion, WBC Welterweight Champion, WBA Light Middleweight Champion, WBC Middleweight Champion and WB Junior Middleweight Champion. His Lights-Out right punch has stopped opponents from Esteban De Jesus, to Dave Y Moore, and many others.

Hands of Stone is a 2016 American biographical sport film directed and written by Jonathan Jakubowicz. It follows the life of Roberto Duran who made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16 year old and retired in 2002 at age 50. Based on a true story, it depicts how the legendary Roberto Duran and his equally legendary trainer, Ray Arcel, change each other's lives. It will star actors such as Edgar Ramirez as Roberto Duran, the legendary actor Robert De Niro playing the role as the late great trainer Ray Arcel, Usher as Sugar Ray Leonard, John Turturro as Frankie Carbo, Ellen Barkin as Stephanie Arcel and Ana de Armas as Flicidad Iglesias. This film is loosely based on the biography of the same name by Christian Giudice. This film is scheduled to be released on August 26, 2016.
