VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- NewLeaf Brands Inc. (CSE: NLB) (OTC: NLBIF) (FSE: 0NF) ("NewLeaf Brands" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Mydecine Group ("Mydecine") is working to build an ecosystem of resources targeted at unlocking the potential of fungi for human wellness. Through a combination of traditional medicine knowledge and modern scientific inquiry, Mydecine strives to bring the public products that will aid them in their journey to personal wellness.
Core to this potential are psilocybin producing mushrooms. In recent times, psilocybin and other tryptamines have begun to experience a well-deserved upsurge in medical interest; Mydecine believes in nurturing this potential. Utilizing various research partnerships, university collaborations and public advocacy groups, Mydecine has a clear path, leading to safe and effective use of fungal compounds for human health.
"With the growing public interest in mushroom applications for human health, Mydecine's lab in Denver stands ready to provide the consumers with the information and innovation they desire," proclaimed Rob Roscow, CSO, NewLeaf Brands, Inc.
Fungi contain a wealth of compounds provided to us by nature and Mydecine is more than excited to announce the build out of a specialty mycology lab in Denver, Colorado. The lab will serve Mydecine's needs for the study, selection and cultivation of valuable and rare fungal products and will incorporate state of the art analytical chemistry, molecular biology, next-gen sequencing, and tissue culture. Mydecine believes that this potential in fungi is barely tapped in our society and that this lab will facilitate its efforts to bring the highest quality fungal food and wellness products to the public.
The capabilities of this lab will serve as a cornerstone for Mydecine's research and development efforts. Additionally, work at this lab will both enable and support numerous research partnerships. The lab build out will allow immediate inquiry into improved production of mushroom products as functional foods, while supporting licensed research partners in the parallel study of psychedelic mushroom compounds for treatment of mental health and other serious conditions.
