(CSE: SILO) (OTCQB: SILFF) (FSE: 3K7A) ("Silo"), a pioneer in the psychedelic and wellness space, to offer a comprehensive range of incomparable psychedelic wellness experiences and retreats in Jamaica.

Enhanced Retreat Experiences and Market Presence
Silo Wellness intends to incorporate Kaya's psilocybin offerings to provide holistic and diversified experiences at their wellness retreats, enabling participants to explore alternative healing and mental health treatments that harness the potential synergies between cannabis and psilocybin.

In light of the recent financial successes of NUGL/Kaya, with top-line revenue hitting $2.2M USD in 2022 ($1.5M gross profit; $2.7M net loss), an increase in revenue from $1.8M USD in 2021, Silo Wellness' partnership with NUGL/Kaya Group brings even more opportunity for expansion and solidifies the company's presence in Jamaica, a region championing the burgeoning psychedelics industry. With the market projected to be worth $5.7 billion globally by 2027 (per the " Psychedelic Drugs: Global Market Outlook "), Silo Wellness attempts to strategically places itself for substantial growth.

Mike Arnold , founder and CEO of Silo Wellness and an Oregon attorney, asserts, "Our collaboration with Kaya is a monumental stride in realizing our vision to offer holistic treatments that combine the best of and broaden our international footprint. We're committed to providing transformative plant medicine wellness experiences."

Echoing this sentiment, Bali Vaswani , CEO of NUGL and Founder of Kaya, adds, "Jamaica is a perfect market for psilocybin offerings, and together with Silo Wellness, we will contribute to the evolving conversation around the potential benefits of these natural compounds."
