Wellbeing Digital Sciences Reveals Recent Achievement By Its KGK Science Subsidiary

The Company’s Wholly Owned Contract Research Organization is Currently Working on Numerous Psychedelic Drug Projects, Clinical Trials, Path-to Market Consultations and New Substance Notifications, as the Continuation of a Pivotal 2021 for KGK Science

Vancouver, British Columbia, February 2, 2022 / Globe Newswire / – Wellbeing Digital  Sciences Inc. (“Wellbeing” or the “Company”) (NEO: MEDI) (OTC: KONEF) (Frankfurt:  MY0), an evidence-based healthcare company focused on innovative clinical solutions, artificial  intelligence-powered digital therapeutics and contract research, is pleased to provide a corporate  update highlighting the various achievements of its wholly owned subsidiary, KGK Science Inc.,  (“KGK” or the “CRO”).  

Recapping some of 2021’s highlights, KGK won contracts for 11 clinical trial service projects and  5 medical writing projects. Despite the restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic,  KGK was able to complete the conduct of 9 clinical trials and advanced several others towards  completion. KGK’s Regulatory Division completed 19 consulting projects for clients in the  nutraceutical, cannabis and psychedelic spheres. KGK received approvals for eight Product  License Applications for Natural Health Products, acknowledgement letters for four unique New  Dietary Ingredient Notifications and expert panel consensus that three food ingredients possess  Generally Recognized As Safe status. Representatives of KGK were asked to be featured speakers  at the large Wonderland, Psychedelic Capital and Lift & Co. events, while the CRO was also a  major sponsor of the Miami-based Wonderland conference.  

For 2022, the CRO expects to experience significant growth based on current client interest in new  projects and requests for proposals, including a substantial expansion in psychedelics-related work.  KGK is currently working on psychedelic drug projects with eight distinct clients, managing four  clinical trials including a Phase 1 study of a proprietary psilocybin extract in healthy adults, and  working with an Ontario-based contract manufacturer to provide a joint solution for the production  and study of psychedelic compounds. Additionally, the CRO is working on 15 Product License  Applications submissions for Health Canada; seven pharmaceutical and 20 nutraceutical clinical 

trials, including two cannabis studies; as well as three paths-to-market and one new substance  notification.  

Internally, the CRO is helping Wellbeing enhance its network of clinics to conduct psychedelic  clinical trials. The Company’s goal is for KGK to become the premier contract research  organization in the psychedelics industry. An additional goal of Wellbeing is to improve virtual  trial conduct, by implementing a novel platform and technology along with its other subsidiary,  IRP Health, that the Company expects to be launched next year. As a result of their 2021  achievements, KGK advanced its reputation as an expert in the psychedelics sector and became a  founding member of the Psychedelic Science 2023 Event that is being planned as the world’s  largest gathering of people in the psychedelic ecosystem.  

“By the lengthy list of engagements currently under way, it is clear that KGK’s services are in  high demand. Our management team and employees are working hard every day to help clients  navigate the clinical trial process and regulatory environment. I’m incredibly proud of KGK’s  evolution and am grateful for the support of both our longstanding clients, new customers and  future collaborators,” said Najla Guthrie, President and CEO of KGK.  

“2021 was an important development year for both KGK and our overall organization as the  subsidiary was integrated after being acquired and synergies were quickly realized. With the large  number of clinical trials, research projects and collaborations with aligned counterparties already  under way at the CRO, management expects that 2022 may be even more rewarding. The  acquisition of KGK was definitely a highlight of last year and we look forward to growing together,  along with the rest of the organization,” added Adam Deffett, Interim CEO of Wellbeing.
