Red Light Holland (TRIP.C) has fast-tracked its 3,000 square-foot custom-built indoor production and distribution facility in Horst, the Netherlands, and is now growing its first crop of magic truffles, according to a press release.

The company is presently growing three different types of truffle—including Psilocybe Galindoi, Psilocybe Tampanensis and Psilocybe Mexicana. The first batch of approximately 100,000 grams should be available in late October, 2020.

“After careful research and planning, including working with our staff, consultants and contractors in the Netherlands and sourcing our truffles’ genetics, substrates and the proper equipment, Red Light Holland is ecstatic to announce that we have started to grow our first batch of magic truffles, much quicker than originally anticipated. This is another important milestone for the Company and we are quite proud to be moving along so quickly and efficiently,” said Todd Shapiro, chief executive officer and director of Red Light Holland.

Red Light Holland is an Ontario-based company engaged in the production, growth and sale of its brand of magic truffles to the legal and recreational market in the Netherlands. They sell their psilocybin truffles through Smart Shops as well as online via its proprietary e-commerce platform. Their previously announced Microdosing Packs should be widely available soon.

When the truffles are ready they will be harvested over a six week period to be ready for internal testing, packaging and distribution within the Netherlands.

“This is an exciting day for the Company! I feel like cutting a ribbon to celebrate with our hard working team of consultants and growers behind the scenes who have helped get us to this point so rapidly. We have remained aggressive, despite COVID-19 slowdowns and Red Light Holland’s growth operation has officially begun,” said Hans Derix, president of Red Light Holland.
