Toronto, Ontario, July 22, 2021 – Psyched Wellness Ltd.

In accordance with the Company’s extraction protocol, approximately 20 kilograms of raw material was used to generate approximately 4.2 kilograms of AME-1. This shipment to our CRO partner lab in Asia represents the most significant amount of AME-1 extraction to date.

The shipment arrived safely to the labs and is intended to supply enough material to complete the 90-day toxicity study, the neurobehavioral studies, the conditioned place preference test, and other remaining scientific work required in the product development process of the Company in order to submit the AME-1 as a new dietary ingredient (“NDI”) in the United States and as a natural health product (“NHP”) in Canada.
Jeff Stevens, CEO of Psyched Wellness said: “Psyched is a step closer to being able to bring our Amanita-based CPG products to market which are currently under development. We believe Amanita will have a sustainable commercial and societal impact, and we are passionate about creating products which will have the power to assist with stress relief, relaxation, and restful sleeping.”
