Red Light Holland releases Data on Psychedelic Concert
Red Light Holland releases a report with data analysis around the success of the Company's Psychedelic concert event on April 16th, 2022. During this event participants chose to consume between 1 to 8 grams of Red Light Holland's premium Psilocybin truffles after an intake discussion with therapist and expert psychedelic guide Jeff Hamburg. After the event participants were sent a survey and the facilitators were interviewed for the report. A small number of participants replied, but with positive results.
- 91.7% of the attendees in the survey reported they would be interested in attending another event, 75% reported they enjoyed the music more than usual
- 41.7% reported they felt connected to the group in a meaningful way
- 33.3% reported lasting benefits beyond the event itself
The long-term benefits included the release of negative emotions and a lasting "Uplifted mood". Some participants also gained insight that helped them in their personal or professional life. No significant negative effects were reported or observed.
The report with detailed statistical analysis conducted by statistician Yoav Blonder, has been sent to Oregon Health Authority representatives and members of the Washington Psilocybin service workgroup, as well as other government officials around the world Red Light Holland is connected with, to help promote regulations and best practices for group psilocybin services.
While there is no statistical significance due to the small sample size Red Light Holland sees the potential of these events in increasing affordable and equitable accessibility, especially for newcomers to the psychedelic community, as newcomers might be more interested in trying psychedelics in a safe environment supervised by experts.
The Company can not make medical claims regarding the use of psilocybin.
