Early Entrant, Addressing Massive Market Opportunity for Psychedelic Drug Therapies for a Wide-Range of Conditions, Including PTSD and Parkinson’s Disease;

Company to Trade Under New Symbol SILO

NEW YORK , Sept. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Uppercuts Brands, Inc. (OTC Pink: UCUT) today announced that it has completed its name change to Silo Pharma, Inc. (“Silo” or “the Company”) and will trade under the stock ticker symbol SILO effective today.

“This name change is a significant step in our transformation to a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of disruptive psychedelic drug therapies,” commented Eric Weisblum, Silo Pharma’s Chief Executive Officer. “As one of the first US publicly-traded entrants into the emerging psilocybin-based drug market, we are pursuing opportunities to sponsor clinical research and subsequently license drug therapies for the treatment of major emotional disturbances such as PTSD, depression, anxiety and addiction as well as other neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.”

Weisblum continued, “Now more than ever, creative new therapies are needed to address the growing mental health challenges that are being further exacerbated by turbulent economic conditions and the recent global health crisis.  Early lab studies with psychedelic drugs, like psilocybin, have shown promising indications producing neurological responses that could potentially treat a wide variety of emotional and neurological disorders. We are pursuing multiple opportunities to partner with leading medical universities to license and/or develop assets based upon psychedelic drug therapies that could be transformative to the health and well-being of patients. Our business is well-capitalized, and we believe that combining our resources with leading medical researchers will lead to significant advances in the psychedelic category.”

“The FDA has recently granted ‘Breakthrough Therapy Designations’ for a number of psychedelic based therapies, accelerating the clinical process, and with decriminalization just beginning, we believe that we are well-positioned at the forefront of an enormous and emerging opportunity,” added Weisblum. “In the coming weeks and months, we will be updating investors with additions to our scientific advisory board, sponsored research/licensing deals with universities and an uplisting to the OTCQB Market.”
