Filament is one of a small number of Canadian companies to have Good Manufacturing Practices-compliant psilocybin drug candidates entering Health Canada-approved clinical trials
Vancouver, British Columbia, January 14, 2022 – Filament Health Corp. (OTCQB:FLHLF) (NEO:FH) (FSE:7QS) (“Filament” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage natural psychedelic drug development company, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Psilo Scientific Ltd. has been included in Health Canada’s list of licensed psilocybin producers. This list is available upon request to parties interested in access to psilocybin through the Special Access Program (SAP) or for scientific research. The SAP allows health care practitioners to request for patients, on an emergency basis, access to drugs that are not yet approved in Canada, such as psilocybin and psilocin.
“Our inclusion in this list will aid us in adding to our growing number of partnerships in the Canadian psychedelic ecosystem,” said Benjamin Lightburn, Chief Executive Officer of Filament Health. “We commend Health Canada on their continuing support of the SAP and of scientific research into psychedelics.”
The list of approved psilocybin producers is intended to support researchers looking to access psilocybin for the purpose of conducting clinical trials in Canada and practitioners looking for psilocybin for emergency treatment of a patient under the SAP.
