Mycotopia Therapies and Ei.Ventures are moving forward with plans to form PSLY.COM; HAVN Life Sciences’ functional mushrooms will be used in PSLY.COM’s MANA products, its line of whole-plant based medicinal mushroom nutraceuticals being developed for the consumer market
MIAMI, March 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mycotopia Therapies Inc. (OTC Pink: TPIA) (the “Company”), a biopharma company focused on research, technology, and the development of medical psychedelics, announced today plans to enter the $13 billion medicinal mushroom market with HAVN Life Sciences‘ biopharmaceuticals and Ei.Ventures MANA products. In advance of its acquisition of Ei.Ventures and plans to form PSLY.COM, Mycotopia Therapies has expanded its supply agreement with HAVN Life Sciences to include functional mushrooms, HAVN Life’s recently launched natural health products, and its line of white label products. PSLY.COM will also be the name of the recently acquired 12x 12 estate in The Sandbox, a virtual world where players can build, own, and monetize their gaming experiences on the Ethereum blockchain. This purchase, valued at $2.2 million, represents the third largest land sale in the Metaverse, and was the subject of a January 5, 2022 article in Forbes by A.J. Herrington titled Startup Plans Psychedelic Trips In The Metaverse With Sandbox Virtual Land Deal.
Under the existing agreement, HAVN Life supplied naturally-derived psilocybin compounds to Mycotopia for U.S.-based universities, researchers and companies. The expanded agreement will provide Mycotopia Therapies with HAVN Life’s functional mushrooms, as well as the white label supply and distribution of HAVN’s line of natural OTC health products currently being registered with the Jamaican Ministry of Health. Jamaica’s Ministry of Health, together with its Regional Health Authorities, make up the public health system and are responsible for health care delivery across the island. In addition to Jamaica, other CARICOM countries are currently considering psychedelic medicine.
“We are delighted to grow our partnership with Mycotopia through the expansion of our supply agreement,” says HAVN Life CEO, Tim Moore. “We welcome the opportunity to see our products reach a broader market and look forward to working with Ben and his team in their development of plant-derived, therapeutic treatment options that address global mental healthcare needs,” he adds.
In December Mycotopia Therapies announced it had entered into a letter of intent regarding a potential acquisition of botanical psilocybin pioneer, Ei.Ventures. Mycotopia Therapies and Ei.Ventures are moving forward with the acquisition, and Ei.Ventures has announced plans to end its Reg A filing with the SEC on March 22, 2022. Post-acquisition, the name of the company will be changed to PSLY.COM, and management intends to pursue a NASDAQ listing. When a definitive agreement is reached, the combined companies will pool their resources to develop regulatory approved, plant-derived, psychoactive therapeutic treatment options and non-psychoactive nutritional supplements and related products that address global mental healthcare needs. One of the first things the combined companies will focus on is using HAVN products with PSLY.COM’s MANA products, its line of whole-plant based medicinal mushroom nutraceuticals being developed for the consumer market.
The medicinal mushroom market is a $13 billion market, with an expected growth rate of 9.4% CAGR through 2026. PSLY.COM’s flagship product will be Psilly, a whole-plant Botanical Psilocybin-based formulation, which is currently in the pre-clinical phase. The near-term goal is to get Psilly through pre-clinical and into phase 1 trials. In addition to targeting the medical and therapeutic markets with its psychedelic solutions, as more states and cities legalize Psilocybin for therapeutic use, PSLY.COM plans to target the consumer markets with its line of non-psychoactive mushroom nutraceuticals, MANA. The first whole-plant based medicinal mushroom nutraceutical to be released from PSLY.COM is called Brain MANA, which is designed to help improve and support brain health, mental clarity and overall well-being. PSLY.COM’s other MANA formulations will target improving immune health, sexual function, sleep quality, joint health and vitality. Just as different strains of cannabis have therapeutic properties, the same will hold true for MANA. Revenues from PSLY.COM’s MANA line will help reduce overall cash burn.
As part of its Mental Wellness platform, PSLY.COM is also planning to launch a Telepsychiatry App, which will be designed to support patients and wellness-seekers on their healing journeys. The demand for Telepsychiatry services is $5.5 billion dollar market with untapped potential. It is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.7% from 2020 to 2027. Ehave, Inc. currently owns a majority of Mycotopia Therapies shares. Post-acquisition, Ehave plans to distribute some of its shares to its shareholders. Ehave is focused on psychedelics healing properties, and will provide various technology related services for PSLY.COM in its technology offerings.
Ben Kaplan, CEO of Mycotopia Therapies, said, “Mushrooms are the second highest growing natural health supplement and are underserved in the market. This expanded agreement supports our ambitious product development and R&D milestones by offering a potential alternative to synthetic derived psilocybin at a fraction of the cost.” Mr. Kapan continued, “With HAVN supplying Mycotopia Therapies with functional mushroom, it helps address potential supply chain issues and enables Mycotopia to get to the distribution and revenue generation phase of our business plan, as we join forces with Ei.Ventures and form PSLY.COM.”
