The company will be commencing its psilocybin operation at a “purpose-built, EU GMP-compliant production and research facility” in Calgary, Alberta. Serenus plans on expanding its domestic and international reach through controlled substance production, research and development in that facility.

The company also says it will continue to broaden its knowledge of psilocybin mushrooms through clinical trials and other studies.

“From day one, Serenus’ mission had remained focused on cultivating and producing controlled substances with consistent high quality that are safe to use and that will supply our customers with options for new treatments in the areas of depression, PTSD, addiction control and mental health,” said Dave Auger, Chief Operating Officer at Serenus Global Inc.

“We are proud to become an official license holder for psychedelic mushroom production in Canada, and to demonstrate our team’s ability to navigate the regulatory landscape. We look forward to beginning genetic and product development immediately,” added Auger.
