The initial product launch will feature two varieties of ground coffee. The Protect Blend is a Peruvian Medium Roast French Vanilla Coffee, Turkey Tail, Cordyceps, Moringa extract, and Amla extract. These ingredients have the proven benefit of stress relief, immune support, and cognitive support. The Focus Blend is a Peruvian Dark Roast Coffee with Lion's Mane extract, Reishi extract, Gotu Kola extract, and Brahmi extract. These ingredients are a healthy source of fungal polysaccharides with immuno-modulating properties that help improve memory and cognitive function, increase alertness, support the immune system and fight mental and physical stress. The Company will soon launch its two instant coffee blends in the US as dietary supplements.

The NeonMind coffee dietary supplements follow all FDA regulations that focus on Comprehensive GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) to ensure the identity, purity, quality, strength and composition of dietary supplements. NeonMind only uses certified organic mushroom extracts which go through the decoction process (traditional water boiling) to maximize the bioavailability of the product. NeonMindfollows strict US pharmacopeia guidelines for lead and other chemicals required by Proposition 65 for safe and daily intake. All final production batches are sent to a third party lab for stringent microbial testing in order for the copacker to release the product certificate of analysis which signifies that the product is safe for the consumer market.

About NeonMind Biosciences Inc.

NeonMind is engaged in preclinical research to develop potential clinical treatments and wellness products to address obesity and weight management conditions and to promote health and wellness. The Company operates three divisions: (i) a pharmaceutical division engaged in drug development of psychedelic compounds with two lead psilocybin-based drug candidates targeting obesity; (ii) a medical services division focused on launching specialty mental health clinics that integrate psychedelic therapeutics into traditional psychotherapy settings; and (iii) a consumer products division that currently sells mushroom-infused products to promote health and wellness.

In its pharmaceutical division, NeonMind has two distinct psilocybin drug development programs targeting obesity. NeonMind's first drug candidate employs psilocybin as an agonist to the serotonin receptor 5- HT2A, which is involved in the hallucinogenic effect of psychedelics. The Company's second drug candidate employs low-dose psilocybin as an agonist to the 5-HT2C receptor, which controls appetite.

NeonMind established a medical services division with the goal of launching NeonMind-branded specialty mental health clinics in Canada that incorporate evidence-backed innovative treatments to address a variety of mental health needs.

NeonMind's consumer division currently sells NeonMind branded coffee products in Canada through NeonMind's direct to consumer e-commerce platform in Canada and the US.
