Psyence Production

Psyence Production

We operate a licensed ISO22000-certified psilocybin cultivation and production facility.

Psyence is federally licensed to cultivate and export psilocybin mushrooms to the legal medical and research markets. We have received import permits from Health Canada, on behalf of Psilo Scientific, and the Portuguese regulators on behalf of the Cooperativa de Ensino Superior Politécnico e Universitário (CESPU) for our mushrooms.

ISO22000 facility

Our production facility is fully operational. In 2022 we received ISO22000 certification from the International Organization for Standardization, awarded through the British Standards Institute (BSI). The facility has been designed and constructed to ISO 14644-1 cleanroom specifications and engineering design principles, which ensures that various parts of the process comply with the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards. Validated and calibrated specialised equipment ensures optimum growing conditions and efficient harvesting and packaging. Recent upgrades to the facility will enable a more flexible expansion of the facility in the future, and this will allow us to gear up to meet anticipated demand for natural psilocybin.

Our psilocybin mushrooms

The species of mushrooms we are growing is called psilocybe cubensis; a naturally occurring psilocybin mushroom species. We are currently harvesting the Natal Super Strength variant and our resident mycologist continues to refine our genetic library in order to ensure a robust gene bank.
