·5 min read

MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica, April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silo Wellness Inc. (“Silo Wellness” or “the Company”) (CSE: SILO) (FRA:3K70), a leading wellness company in the psychedelics and functional mushroom marketplaces, today announced a series of psilocybin-assisted wellness retreats beginning in May. Based in Montego Bay, these retreats are one component of Silo Wellness’ existing psilocybin operations in Jamaica, where the Company currently conducts mushroom and truffle cultivation and testing of the Company’s patent-pending nasal spray.

“We are prioritizing the expansion of our wellness retreat offerings to meet rising consumer demand for these transformative psychedelic experiences,” said Chief Executive Officer Douglas K. Gordon. “Setting and mindset have a profound influence on an individual’s experience, and our Jamaican retreats offer idyllic, natural backdrops for engaging in psilocybin-assisted exploration, introspection and self-actualization.”

The new line-up of psilocybin-assisted retreats range from four to six days and are expected to take place in Jamaica between May and August of 2021. Each retreat presents a tailored offering for distinct audiences and interests:

  • Ultimate Pride & Love - Psychedelic Retreat
    June 9, 2021 - June 13, 2021
    This five-day/four-night retreat is designed as a safe space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community to embark upon their psilocybin-assisted journey together.

  • Mushroom Grower's Workshop
    July 17, 2021 - July 20, 2021
    At this four-day/three-night retreat, would-be cultivators will learn the secrets of growing magic mushrooms from some of the first legal professionals in the industry.

Silo Wellness is the leading psilocybin cultivator and facilitator of psychedelic retreats in Jamaica, a jurisdiction where the cultivation, extraction, and consumption of psilocybin mushrooms is not illegal.
