Lisa Pumphrey, CEO of Lickinghole Creek, noted the 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.
Lickinghole Creek cross-branded with First Necessity Hemp, and they work together in collaboration with Botanaway and Apple Rush to educate about and practice sustainable business and farming practices. In partnership with Richard Booker, and Alex Rebel Marley, First Necessity Hemp has launched the One Lion movement.
“With Apple Rush’s advanced technology, Botanaway’s large distribution network, and Lickinghole Creek’s 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,” Pumphrey said.
Tony Torgerud, CEO of Apple Rush, said the company is excited to partner with Lickinghole Creek and Botanaway to produce a sparkling CBD beverage.
“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,” he said. “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.”
