The Trial is intended to determine the capacity of psilocybin to dose-dependently cause weight loss and prevent weight gain, measuring glucose metabolism, weight loss and effect on food cravings.

NeonMind has engaged the University of British Columbia (the "University") to conduct the Trial. The services are provided by the University under the supervision of Dr. Alasdair Barr, Department of Anesthesiology, Pharmacology & Therapeutics, Faculty of Medicine, who is authorized by Health Canada to act as the Principal Investigator for the Trial (the "PrincipalInvestigator").

Dr. Barr is a tenured faculty member at the University and has extensive experience working with controlled substances as part of his research. His doctoral and post-doctoral research involved a significant body of work using controlled substances.

Before psilocybin, a restricted substance, can be used for a scientific purpose in Canada, the Canadian Minister of Health must grant authority or an exemption pursuant to Subsection 56 of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, S.C. 1996, c. 19.

On July 27, 2020, an application regarding the NeonMind Trial was submitted to Health Canada and on October 7, 2020, pursuant to section J.01.059 of Part J of the Food and Drug Regulations (FDR), Health Canada granted authorization to the Principal Investigator to carry out the Trial using psilocybin at UBC.

The NeonMind team marries ancient Ayurvedic wisdom with modern science, delivering high quality formulations that put health and wellness at the forefront for each of its unique coffee blends. In addition to its medicinal mushroom products, NeonMind is developing patent pending intellectual property for therapeutic uses of psilocybin, the psychedelic substance in magic mushrooms. Health Canada has approved NeonMind's preclinical trial for research of psilocybin as a treatment for weight loss and NeonMind is currently developing protocols for Phase II human trials to be submitted for approval in early 2021.

NeonMind's product candidates with psychedelic compounds will not be commercialized prior to applicable regulatory approval, which will only be granted if clinical evidence of safety and efficacy for the intended uses is successfully developed. Psilocybin is currently a Schedule III drug under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) and it is a criminal offence to possess substances under the CDSA without a prescription. Health Canada has not approved psilocybin as a drug.
