VANCOUVER — Vocan Biotechnologies Inc., a subsidiary of Core One Labs Inc. has filed a patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office  for the production of biosynthetic N-methyltryptamine  through its recombinant production system.

N-Methyltryptamine is a member of tryptamines and is an organic compound known to produce psychoactive effects when combined with a monoamine oxidase A inhibitor.

The patent entitled “Production of Psychedelic Compounds” protects Core One’s production system. The system, under the leadership of Dr. Jan Burian, Chief Scientist, and Dr. Robert EW Hancock, is designed to make bacteria act as a biological factory and produce bio-identical psychedelic analogs such as biosynthetic N-methyltryptamine (NMT.)

The company says its production process can manufacture GMP compliant API grade NMT, and it retains the stereochemistry of the natural psychedelic analogs found in hallucinogenic mushrooms.
