Creso Pharma (CPH) has given an update on its wholly-owned Canadian psychedelics company Halucenex Life Sciences and its progress on the company’s first psilocybin mushroom harvest.
Creso has reported that upgrades to its state-of-the-art grow room have been completed in its medical facility in Nova Scotia after extensive internal consultations and discussions with partners which is said to lay the foundation for the maiden harvest.
The company installed food-grade washable wall and ceiling panels, as well as commissioned heat and humidity control systems for growing. This allows Halucenex to take the necessary steps towards cultivation.
Creso Pharma expects the first harvest will be complete within the next three months, with plans to use the harvested psilocybe mushrooms for research and development (R&D) and product development initiatives.
Halucenex also commissioned and installed a high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system at Nova Scotia, which will be utilised to test the active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) in both synthetic and botanical psilocybe mushrooms.
The HPLC is used to separate, identify and quantify each component in a mixture, and will be used by Halucenex to gain further insights into the API levels, which is said to be an important development.
Managing Director and CEO William Lay said the company has “continued to make very strong, value accretive progress over the course of 2022”.
“[The successful commissioning of the HPLC system] is imperative as we move towards product development and other research initiatives.”
CPH shares closed the day off 5.26 per cent in the green at 6 cents.
