Collaborative expertise a hallmark for future supply of natural psilocybin
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Optimi Health Corp. (CSE: OPTI) (OTCQX: OPTHF) (FRA: 8BN) (“Optimi” or the “Company”), a homegrown, Canadian company producing natural, scalable, and accessible mushroom formulations for transformational human experiences, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a supply agreement with Filament Health (“Filament”) (OTCQB:FLHLF) (NEO:FH) (FSE:7QS), a clinical-stage natural psychedelic drug development company.
Optimi has been engaged by Filament to supply psilocybin mushrooms cultivated in Optimi’s recently inaugurated 20,000 square foot EU-GMP Princeton, British Columbia facility in the form of whole, dried mushroom fruiting bodies for potential drug development, testing, and analysis by Filament’s research team.
“Our supply agreement with Filament Health is an excellent fit for both parties,” said Optimi CEO Bill Ciprick. “Filament’s commitment to the development of unique intellectual properties using natural psychedelic medicines, and to the advancement of natural psilocybin in the space as a whole, are well-aligned with our own values and goals for the future of psychedelics.”
Under the agreement, both companies have agreed to a one-year term which would allow Filament to place orders for whole, dried fruiting body mushrooms on a case-by-case basis.
“We are pleased to partner with Optimi as we build out our own supply chain and explore external suppliers,” added Filament Health CEO and Co-Founder Benjamin Lightburn. “This is an important step for Filament, and we look forward to determining the compatibility of Optimi’s product with our industry-leading natural extraction technology.”
As psilocybin continues to be the most actively studied psychedelic in clinical trials across the world, both companies believe the collaborative agreement sends a strong message that safety and research are paramount to growing a safe and secure supply of natural psilocybin.
Authorized parties interested in purchasing Optimi psilocybin and functional mushroom products are invited to contact firstname.lastname@example.org where a member of the sales team will respond within 24 hours.
