Psyence Group Inc. (CSE: PSYG | OTCQB: PSYGF) has successfully exported psilocybin mushrooms to Psilo Scientific Ltd. in Canada. Psilo Scientific, a wholly owned subsidiary of Filament Health Corp., is an exclusively natural psychedelic drug discovery and extraction company.

Psyence received a Health Canada import permit obtained by Psilo Scientific in March 2022. The psilocybin mushrooms have now been received at Psilo Scientific’s facility in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The mushrooms will be used by Psilo Scientific for analysis and extraction and then evaluated for compatibility in Filament’s drug development process.

“This export is right on target with our goal of becoming a trusted, commercial supplier of psilocybin mushrooms for the legal, global medical market and medical research market. Our team has spent a considerable amount of time ensuring that we meet all the stringent requirements for the export and import of psilocybin.

Psyence operates one of the first federally licensed commercial psilocybin production facilities in the world. Its production facility, located in Southern Africa, is ISO22000 certified and is licensed to cultivate and export psilocybin mushrooms for the legal, global medical market and commercial medical research market.
