HAWKESBURY PROVIDENCE, Ontario (PRWEB)

Zollaris Laboratories Corporation. (hereafter, “Zollaris”) receives authorization from the Health Canada, Office of Controlled Substances for analytical investigation of several psilocybin powders currently permitted under license and available in Canada. The Health Canada license permits Zollaris to proceed to screen suitable candidates and drug preparations to be used in clinical trials to be initiated in 2022. Health Canada has recognized the importance of Zollaris’ analytical research infrastructure, drug development and manufacturing programs aimed at producing a molecular standardization of psilocybin form factors.
Psilocybin therapy is an approach being investigated for the treatment of mental health challenges where current drug therapies have known and unwanted adverse effects and present high potential to addiction. Psilocybin is a psychoactive ingredient found in some species of mushrooms, often referred to as ”magic mushrooms” and which have been the focus of renewed interest for medical use in mental health where current therapeutics are not ideal. With this license, Zollaris can enter the pharmaceutical drug development arena to develop future therapeutics.
Under the title of “Drug Development Pathways to Bring Psilocybin (and Psilocin) to the Pharmaceutical Market”, Zollaris Labs will complete the necessary steps in order to produce the first standard of Psilocybin to be sold under USP certification.
Zollaris investigational program is a pivotal passage to get pharmaceutical grade Psilocybin powders with a Made in Canada stamp, in our fully licensed GMP Facility.
