SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, July 26, 2021 – Eversio Wellness Ltd. (“Eversio” or the “Company”), a mushroom wellness company providing high-quality, high-potency functional mushroom extract products, has received a Controlled Substances Dealer’s Licence from Health Canada for the conduct of production, possession, sale, and transportation of psilocybin, psilocin, DMT and mescaline. Psilocybin is the naturally occurring psychoactive compound found in some species of mushrooms and is actively being studied as a potential natural alternative for treating various types of mental illness, addiction and other chronic health conditions.
This regulatory approval allows Eversio to produce these substances for research collaboration, including supplying products for clinical and research trials, and to supply prescription-controlled substances to patients in need through its partnerships with health care providers.
“We are excited to expand our research and development to include the production of psilocybin for medical use and we look forward to providing research and healthcare communities with safe, high-quality, scientifically-tested and expert-made full dose and micro-dosing products,” said Craig Garden, CEO of Eversio. “We have seen significant growth in the functional and psychedelic mushroom markets due to the increased societal demand for nature-sourced medicines that can help to achieve optimal health and wellness. By adding psilocybin to our cultivation efforts, we will be at the cutting-edge of significant scientific and health revelations in our industry.”
Eversio completed the first phase of construction of its research and development facility in Surrey, British Columbia in March 2021 where Garnet Martens, Eversio’s Chief Scientific Officer, has been cultivating functional mushrooms, expanding Eversio’s spore library, and working in collaboration on the production of ready-to-consume mushroom-infused foods and beverages.
