May 27, 2022
VANCOUVER, BC — 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 Halucenex Life Sciences Inc. (“Halucenex”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Creso Pharma of Australia (ASX: CPH). Halucenex is based in Windsor, Nova Scotia and is a life sciences company focused on researching novel psychedelic compounds, developing and licensing psychedelic compounds for the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical markets, and conducting clinical trials on the medical benefits of psychedelic medicine.
Additionally, Optimi wishes to confirm that the supply agreement pertains to the entirety of the Company’s recently harvested first batch of cubensis mushrooms at its Princeton, British Columbia facility. The mushrooms will be supplied to Halucenex in the form of whole, dried mushroom fruiting bodies.
“This first supply agreement, coming so soon after our first complete cultivation cycle, is a powerful affirmation of our decision to pursue the development of natural, GMP psilocybin,” said Bill Ciprick, CEO of Optimi. “From this initial proof-of-concept batch, our cultivation team will continue to scale our operations to meet the demands of the sector, domestically and internationally with licensed entities and for individual patients within Canada according to the terms of the Special Access Program.”
Halucenex CEO, Bill Fleming, says the agreement with Optimi is one both companies will benefit from.
“We’re very excited to be moving forward on this supply agreement with the team at Optimi Health,” said Fleming. “Among our top priorities in the development of a psychedelic-assisted psychotherapeutic model for conditions such as anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder has been to secure a safe, consistent supply of GMP psilocybin.”
Authorized parties interested in purchasing Optimi psilocybin and functional mushroom products should send an email to [email protected] where a member of the sales team will respond within 24 hours.
