Their team has comprehensive experience in clinical research with more than 300 clinical studies in the mental health space.
Psilotec is pursuing development of unique products, product combinations, and formulations to increase revenue from multiple sources.
Psilotec is in the process of securing a 23,000 sq. ft. growing facility exclusively designed for PsiloTec’s needs. All production will be carried out under the highest GMP quality standards.
They will use mycology experts and xclusively licensed IP to enhance yields and speed of harvest with intention to develop unique strains of mushrooms secured along with ongoing research and development of new IP protected strains.
Anticipated production of psilocybin for clinical trials beginning Q2, 2021, at partnered sites with production commencing in Alberta in Q4, 2021.
Using a wide range of state-of-the-art technology, including multiple in-house innovations, Psilotec intends to use virtual therapy sessions so that individuals can be treated locally while remaining connected to central experienced staff.
Individuals will be treated with standardized IP-protected equipment. By offering central monitoring in real time, highly experienced therapists can also offer appropriate psychological support as needed throughout every session. Live and continuous biofeedback offers more layers of support and re-assurance, and can help ensure that every patient gains the most out of their therapeutic experience.
They aim to have over 1,000 fully-trained therapists available before the end of 2022.
