Red Light Holland and PharmAla Achieve Psilocybin Extraction Milestone

Red Light Holland Achieves Milestone in Psilocybin Extraction

Red Light Holland Corp. (TRUFF) has successfully completed the first phase of psilocybin extraction in collaboration with PharmAla Biotech Holdings Inc. (MDXXF). This marks a significant step towards the company's goal of producing high-quality, natural-source psilocybin for medical applications.

The first phase involved the extraction of a rough powdered psilocybin extract at Chiral Labs, a laboratory jointly operated by Red Light Holland and PharmAla. This follows the successful import of natural psilocybin truffles from the Netherlands and their initial processing at CCrest Laboratories in Montreal.

Optimization and Validation

The next step in the collaboration is to optimize and validate the psilocybin extraction procedure. This will ensure the production of consistent, high-purity psilocybin for use in clinical trials and government-approved access programs.

Collaboration Aims for Commercial-Scale Production

The ultimate goal of the collaboration is to develop a commercially viable process for producing naturally derived psilocybin API from truffles. This could pave the way for the development of high-margin psilocybin medical products and valuable intellectual property for Red Light Holland.

Stock Price Update

As of Wednesday afternoon, TRUFF's shares were trading 8.09% lower at $0.0403 per share.
