VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Core One Labs Inc. (CSE: COOL), (OTC: CLABF), (Frankfurt: LD6, WKN: A3CSSU) (“Core One” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, further to the Company’s press release dated April 21, 2021, the Company’s team of scientists at its wholly-owned subsidiary Vocan Biotechnologies Inc. (“Vocan”) has received positive results and believes that replication of its proprietary recombinant production system (the “Production System”), currently proven and utilized for the production of psilocybin, will result in successful production of API-Grade N-methyltryptamine (NMT) (also known as monomethyl tryptamine (MMT)).
In efforts to replicate their proprietary production system and produce DMT, Vocan scientists have uncovered this important DMT precursor NMT. Identification of this precursor is a leading indication that production of DMT is highly probable.
With the positive identification of NMT in hand, Vocan scientists will initiate further employment of their production system to imminently produce NMT. The sound production of NMT will lend further credence to the scientific methods currently employed, and hypothetically result in the production of DMT.
“The identification of this DMT precursor compound is a significant indication that our scientists are on the right path to producing DMT. The successful production of NMT, which we expect to complete in the next few days, will aid in the defence of the hypothesis that our proprietary production system can be replicated to produce multiple API-grade psychedelic compounds. The successful production of DMT would widen the Company’s psychedelic products pipeline, and would further establish the Company as a leading developer in the rapidly growing and competitive psychedelics industry,” stated Joel Shacker, Core One CEO.
“Core One aims to be the supplier of choice for those conducting and furthering psychedelics research. As our scientists continually prove up the replication and viability capabilities of their production methods, I believe we are on the track to meeting this goal.”
DMT, a naturally occurring psychedelic substance, is currently under clinical investigation for the treatment of certain mood disorders. The compound is a primary component of traditional South American entheogenic brews and is traditionally derived from the leaves of a variety of plants endemic to equatorial regions across the globe.
