Silo Wellness Announces Intellectual Property Licensing Agreement of Psilocybin Nasal Spray in Colombia and Brazil
April 15th, 2021
TORONTO, April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Silo Wellness Inc. (“Silo Wellness”) (CSE: SILO) (FRA:3K70), a wellness company in the psychedelics and functional mushroom marketplaces announced today that through its wholly-owned subsidiary, it has signed a binding Letter of Intent (LOI) for a multi-year patent licensing agreement with Jungle Med Inc. (“Jungle Med”), a human health and wellness company with operations in Latin America, to exclusively manufacture, promote, advertise, distribute and sell the patent-pending, metered-dosing psilocybin nasal spray in the countries of Colombia and Brazil. This marks the Company’s first commercial transaction of its new-to-world intellectual property.
“Silo Wellness was created to enhance wellness through psychedelics and functional foods. The Company’s patent-pending nasal spray makes psilocybin easier to access, administer and ingest. One of the inherent challenges with ingesting psilocybin mushrooms orally is the discomfort it can cause to one’s digestive system; however, our nasal spray solves this problem through bypassing the digestive system and entering the bloodstream through the nasal membranes,” stated Douglas K. Gordon, Chief Executive Officer of Silo Wellness. “The precise metered-dosing format allows for a measured amount of psilocybin to be administered, ensuring a higher degree of safety and consistency. Entering into this exclusive strategic licensing agreement with Jungle Med takes our intellectual property beyond Jamaica and marks our expansion to Latin America.”
“Jungle Med believes in unlocking the therapeutic power of plants, fungi and psychedelics so partnering with Silo Wellness, a leader in the global psychedelics category, was a natural decision,” stated Dr. Beverly Richardson, Chief Executive Officer of Jungle Med. “This breakthrough opportunity to become the first company to license the novel psilocybin metered-dosing nasal spray and introduce an effective psilocybin experience in both Colombia and Brazil is an amazing opportunity for consumers of these two Latin American countries to realizing a more natural and fulfilling approach to self-healing and well-being.”
Metered-dosing ingestion alternatives with faster uptake speed are important to prevent accidental high-dosage experiences (also known as “stacking,” when the consumer takes a second dose before the first dose takes effect). Smaller ‘sub-psychedelic, sub-perceptual to perceptual doses’ of psychedelic mushrooms may give the consumer spiritual, medical and therapeutic benefits without sending the user into a psychedelic ‘trip’ as with high doses of mushroom biomass.
The exclusive LOI stipulates an upfront licensing fee of USD $250,000, five-year term with automatic renewal provisions, providing sales, distribution and marketing expectations are delivered upon and/or exceeded and royalty provisions. The parties will work expeditiously towards entering a definitive licensing agreement to reflect the terms of the LOI. Today’s LOI disclosure with Jungle Med follows the global announcement made mid-March in which Silo Wellness announced it had acquired the exclusive worldwide rights to collaborate with the Family of Bob Marley to brand, market and sell a distinct line of functional and psychedelic mushrooms.
