The Company has started production of its first grow with local partner Hypha Wellness
VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 4, 2021 / Havn Life Sciences Inc. (CSE:HAVN)(OTC PINK:HAVLF)(FSE:5NP) (the 'Company' or 'Havn Life'), a biotechnology company pursuing standardized extraction of psychoactive compounds and the development of natural healthcare products, is pleased to announce that it now has a fully operational mycology lab and production facility in Jamaica.
By operationalizing the facility, the Company's research division, Havn Labs, has begun production alongside local partner Hypha Wellness, a Jamaican-based food and psychoactive mushroom producer. This puts the Company on track to deliver naturally-derived psilocybin products to clinical studies and researchers by Q4 2021.
Jamaica is an ideal site for the new facility, as it has very favourable regulations for the production of psilocybin-containing mushrooms. At its new facility, Havn Labs will develop optimized, sterile growing criteria for psilocybe mushrooms. Chief Psychedelic Officer Dr. Ivan Casselman and Chief Research Officer Dr. Alexzander Samuelsson bring decades of experience in plant medicine, and will lead the operation with the support of local staff.
In addition, the Havn Labs team in Jamaica has been interfacing with local government officials to help advise on many different aspects of mycology. 'We want to build strong partnerships with government, industry, and academics here in Jamaica,' noted Dr. Ivan Casselman, Havn Life's Chief Psychedelic Officer. 'The Jamaican psilocybin mushroom industry has a lot of potential, so it is important for our team to help support and build a sustainable industry here. Over the last 3 months, we have been meeting with several key stakeholders to develop collaborative relationships. We are very excited to further develop these relationships and help build the Jamaican medicinal psilocybin mushroom industry.'
By taking a multidisciplinary, multi sector approach to promoting the psychedelic industry in Jamaica, Havn Labs is signalling its commitment to sustainable, evidence-based, and high quality extraction of psychoactive compounds. With production underway, the Company takes a significant step forward in making these compounds available for research that can unlock human potential.
