VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 19, 2018 / Global Cannabis Applications Corp. ("GCAC" or the "Company") (OTCQB: FUAPF, CSE: APP, FSE: 2FA), a leading developer of innovative data technologies for the medical cannabis industry, is pleased to announce that it is exempt from the recent banking and settlement restrictions made by Clearstream Banking regarding companies directly or indirectly involved with cannabis. Clearstream has clarified that those securities where the main business consists of medical cannabis are exempt from the restrictions.

"Our Citizen Green online community has always been focused on improving the lives of ‘medical cannabis' patients and we are pleased to be exempt from the Clearwater Banking restrictions," said CEO Brad Moore, Chief Executive Officer, GCAC. "GCAC has always had a robust following of shareholders in Germany and other parts of the European Union and with a strong corporate treasury we look forward to continuing to execute on our various mandates and build value for our shareholders around the world."

On June 25, 2018, Clearstream Banking announced that it will discontinue services on the close of business and settlement date on 28 September 2018, after which it will no longer settle and safekeep securities to businesses where the main business is connected directly or indirectly to cannabis and other narcotics products.

On June 29, 2018 Clearstream informed customers that the restrictions outlined in Announcement A18095 will not be applied to securities where the main business consists of medicinal cannabis.

Clearstream cited "legal reasons" for the change, and shared a list of 147 impacted securities, including many U.S. and Canadian companies such as GCAC, Aurora Cannabis Inc., Canopy Growth Corporation and GW Pharmaceuticals.
