Cannabis Global’s Research into Psychedelic Mushroom Focuses on Foods and Beverage Infusions

Cannabis Global’s Research into Psychedelic Mushroom Focuses on Foods and Beverage Infusions

LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 4, 2021 / Cannabis Global, Inc. (OTC PINK:CBGL), an innovation-oriented company investing in disruptive cannabis technologies, today released information on its research and development programs for psychedelic mushrooms and entheogenic plants, and the process of infusing the active ingredients into foods and beverages.

“Our emphasis is on both direct infusion of the fungus and plant materials, and on extracting the active ingredients,” commented Cannabis Global Inc CEO, Arman Tabatabaei. “We have seen strong success in both methods and have used both to infuse a variety of ingredients”, he continued.

Much of the Company’s development efforts have centered on masking the strong tastes of mushroom extracts and entheogenic plants. Cannabis Global is utilizing dual extraction technologies utilizing water and food grade ethanol, rather than stronger solvents that are both not food grade and require extensive purging in order to meet the expected California testing standards. The dual extractions are then emulsified using the all-natural processes developed by the Company for cannabis edibles.

Mr. Tabatabaei continued, “We are hopeful about the possible passage of Senator Scott Wiener’s (D-San Francisco) Senate Bill 519 in California, which would allow us to move forward with our research and development, and possible commercialization of psychedelics-infused food and beverage products. Once legalized, we foresee possible licensing opportunities for our existing infusion technologies, and the marketing of pre-made psychedelic containing emulsions, and emulsions containing both psychedelics and cannabinoid, with food and beverage brands. We are also especially excited about moving beyond ordinary THC with these combinations through the inclusion of rare cannabinoids, such as Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THC-V) and Cannabinol (CBN).”

Optimi Health Natural Psilocybin Extraction Breakthrough Submitted for Provisional Patent Application

Optimi Health Natural Psilocybin Extraction Breakthrough Submitted for Provisional Patent Application

Company utilizes green chemistry to stabilize natural product with higher yields

VANCOUVER, BC  (October 5, 2021) — Optimi Health Corp. (CSE: OPTI) (OTCQB: OPTHF) (FRA: 8BN) (“Optimi” or the “Company”), developers of a vertically integrated functional mushroom brand focused on the health and wellness sector, is pleased to advise of a recent patent filing pertaining to a breakthrough process that facilitates the extraction of the natural products Psilocybin and Psilocin from mushrooms at higher yields than previously possible.

The instability of Psilocybin and Psilocin has historically been a difficult problem to solve. Compared to the total alkaloid content believed to be in mushrooms, analytical chemistry studies have shown a 3-fold decrease in the total alkaloid content when the alkaloids are extracted from mushrooms that have been subjected to dehydration. Optimi has discovered a novel, high yielding extraction technique by combining multiple process steps that collectively increase the total yield of alkaloids retrieved from the mushrooms.

Many companies in the sector frequently use synthetic Psilocybin due to the instability of Psilocin which has been shown to degrade due to its phenolic hydroxy group. Optimi’s unique extraction technique not only increases overall alkaloid yield, but also protects the active alkaloids from degradation. Optimi Health Chief Scientific Officer, Justin Kirkland notes, “I find the compounds produced by these mushrooms as quite precious and am delighted to have developed a procedure that maintains their integrity.”

This innovative molecular protection process is believed to increase the bioavailability and permeability of the active components of the mushroom. In keeping with Optimi Health’s commitment to sustainability and the environment, the proprietary process protected in the patent filing extensively utilizes green chemistry. Additionally, the process aids in lowering the cost of the final drug product for the patient as well as creating improved manufacturing efficiencies and improved safety characteristics related to farm operations.

Optimi Health CEO Bill Ciprick states, “Today’s announcement reflects our determination to advance the innovation of all-natural mushroom science. We’ve achieved a singular achievement which will ultimately enable future patients the ability to select a superior, natural solution for their needs. The fact our process is both cost-effective and offers higher yields is, of course, a potentially significant commercial factor for us. We are looking forward to implementing these improved procedures as the construction of our mushroom farm facilities nears completion and are excited to continue to develop our inhouse IP portfolio to bring added value to our venture and ultimately to our shareholders.”

On Behalf of the Board of Directors,

Bill Ciprick
Chief Executive Officer
Optimi Health Corp.

More psilocybin please!

Optimi Health Natural Psilocybin Extraction Breakthrough Submitted for Provisional Patent Application

This new extraction method could yield more psilocybin from a single mushroom than previously possible.

Natural psilocybin extraction can have low and unstable yields, which is why many companies opt for synthetic versions. When mushrooms are dehydrated, the total psilocybin/psilocin content extracted  is three times lower than the total amount believed to be in the mushroom.

Optimi Health (OPTI) developed an extraction technique that not only increases the yield of natural psilocybin, but also protects the compounds from degeneration while reducing the cost of the final drug. On Tuesday, the company announced that it filed a provisional patent application to protect the process.
