Quick Take

  • Silo Wellness announced an agreement with Los Angeles-based wellness company Kaivalya Kollectiv
  • This partnership will allow Silo to operate two DMT retreats in Jamaica

Silo Wellness Inc. (CSE: SILO), a leading global psychedelics company has today announced it will expand its portfolio of psilocybin and ketamine product and retreat offerings to also include 5-MeO-DMT through a partnership with Kaivalya Kollectiv, an L.A.-based wellness company that conducts psychedelic-integrated spiritual coaching as well as facilitated retreats in Mexico, Jamaica and Costa Rica. Through the partnership, Silo Wellness will operate two 5-MeO-DMT retreats in Jamaica, where the Company already conducts psilocybin-assisted retreats as well as mushroom and truffle cultivation workshops. The Company also continues to test its proof-of-concept patent pending nasal spray in Jamaica. 

More commonly known by names like the “God molecule” or “The Toad,” 5-MeO-DMT is a research chemical psychedelic of the tryptamine class, four to six times more powerful than its better-known cousin, DMT (N,N-dimethyltryptamine). 5-MeO-DMT shows promise in the treatment of certain medical conditions, potentially improving general well-being and mindfulness as well as reducing the symptoms of psychological disorders with a single inhalation.

“Psychedelic experiences can be profoundly transformative and deeply healing. We are pleased to expand our portfolio to include 5-MeO-DMT retreats, especially at a time when so many people are struggling with mental health issues and looking for plant-based alternatives to help guide them on their paths to greater self-actualization,”

Douglas K. Gordon, Chief Executive Officer of Silo Wellness.

Silo Wellness and Kaivalya Kollectiv will integrate the 5-MeO-DMT experience into two new Jamaican retreats featuring yoga, meditation, breath work and spiritual coaching as well as unique culinary and cultural experiences. The partnership marks the first by a publicly traded company to offer a 5-MeO-DMT wellness retreat as well as the first-of-its-kind to be held in Jamaica.

“We’ve always believed that everyone on the planet should have access to the life-changing properties of psychedelics. When used properly, 5-MeO-DMT can be one of the most powerful tools known to man, allowing participants a brief yet intense mystical experience,” “We are excited to partner with fellow pioneers of the psychedelic industry like Silo Wellness in expanding the resources and tools available to assist people on their journeys towards greater enlightenment and enhanced self-actualization.” 

Joël Brierre, founder and CEO of Kaivalya Kollectiv.

5-MeO-DMT is found in a wide variety of plants, at least one toad species and can also be produced synthetically. The compound produces hallucinogenic experiences between 7 and 90 minutes long and has long been used by indigenous communities as a healing modality. Today, 5-MeO-DMT, along with other psychedelic compounds like psilocybin and ketamine, is gaining mainstream popularity as clinical trials and formal research continue to prove its efficacy as an alternative mental health tool and as advocacy initiatives work to decriminalize the compound in certain jurisdictions and adapt the regulations governing its use and applications.
