Silo Wellness Inc. (CSE: SILO) (OTCQB: SILFF) (FSE: 3K7A) ("Silo Wellness" or the "Company"), a leading global psychedelics company, and Dyscovry Science Ltd. ("Dyscovry"), a Toronto-based biotechnology company focused on biosynthetic manufacturing of psilocybin and its derivatives targeting a physiological condition, irritable bowel syndrome, today announced the companies have entered into a definitive share exchange agreement through which Silo acquires 100% of Dyscovry.

With Dyscovry's research collaboration with Canadian federal government research laboratories, Dyscovry intends to develop a biotechnological process for the production of psilocybin and its potentially novel molecule derivatives. This transaction affirms Silo's commitment to the psychedelic pharmaceutical space and is expected to add pharmaceutical R&D capabilities to Silo's patent-pending metered-dosing formulations for psilocybin, DMT, mescaline, and 5-MeO-DMT, and its psychedelic retreat expertise to help unlock the value of its strategicportfolio.

"We are joining two teams that share a passion and vision for developing differentiated psychedelic healing therapies that advance science and transform the lives of patients. I look forward to all that we intend to accomplish together as a combined organization," stated Brad Dottin, founder and president of Dyscovry. "With Dyscovry's collaborative partnerships with Canadian federal government research institutions, a Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) certified university facility for animal studies, and an Ontario-based DEL facility for pre-clinical research, this merger will further enhance Silo's platform for continued growth by adding R&D capability and a team with early-stage research, translational and clinical development capabilities along with deep-rooted scientific knowledge in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and severe inflammatory diseases," Mr. Dottin continued.

"The Dyscovry transaction has been highly anticipated by our shareholder base and a long time coming," commented Silo founder and CEO Mike Arnold, an Oregon lawyer. Silo previously announced in May a letter of intent to acquire Dyscovry. "As I have gotten to know the Dyscovry team over the last year, I have seen potential synergies far beyond what is within the four corners of the Dyscovry portfolio," said Arnold. "I am thrilled to bring our networks together to add value to what we have built in Jamaica and intend to build in our home state of Oregon."

Terms of Share Exchange Agreement

Pursuant to the terms of the Share Exchange Agreement, Silo will acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Dyscovry in exchange for 12,762,325 (for a total of 49% of the issued shares post-closing of the transaction) common shares in the capital of Silo (the "Payment Shares"). The Payment Shares issued for shares of Dyscovry shall be subject to restrictions on resale for a period of 36 months from closing of the Acquisition and shall be released on a schedule consistent with the release schedule for an "emerging issuer" prescribed by section 4.3 of National Policy 46-201- Escrow for Initial Public Offerings. Acceleration of the release from the lock-up may be on terms and conditions established in good faith between the Parties and based on the performance of the Purchased Shares on the CSE and at any time following Closing upon the unanimous approval of the board of directors of Silo.

Following closing, Dyscovry shall have the right to immediately nominate one director to the board of directors of Silo. Silo has also agreed to pay approximately CAD$120,000 of Dyscovry founder's debt in twelve equal monthly installments, and in any event, the total debt shall be paid no later than twelve months from the Closing Date. Closing of the Transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and applicable regulatory approvals, including the approval of the CSE and the shareholders of Dyscovry if required.

OTHER CORPORATE UPDATES

On July 26, 2022, the Company also granted 500,000 common shares purchase options to each of the five directors of the Company; each option entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at CAD$0.025 until five years from the grant date. The options are subject to a four-month hold period.

Additionally, the Company has entered into an agreement with Bolt Media, Inc. ("BM") to provide services relating to social media support and strategic media services for a six-month term beginning in September 2022. The Company has agreed to pay a total

of USD$8,833/month for the services to be provided during the term. In line with the Company's strategy for raising awareness, the Company has also retained Lifewater Media to introduce Silo and its services to the US investment community. The contract with Lifewater Media includes a USD$60,000 budget for newsletter and display advertising and copywriting and design fees. Lifewater Media are well known professionals in the media industry with more than 40 years of combined experience. Lifewater Media is a pioneer in US marketing strategy and digital marketing. Neither provides investor relations or market making services. One purpose of the campaign is to drive awareness to the Company's psychedelic vacations in Jamaica.

Silo Wellness Wins Amendment to Proposed Land Use Ordinance for Oregon Psychedelic Ranch; Corporate Update: Shareholder FAQs

Silo Wellness Inc. (CSE: SILO) (OTCQB: SILFF) (FSE: 3K7A) ("Silo Wellness" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Jackson County Planning Commission recommended to the elected commissioners the adoption of an amended land use ordinance that would allow Oregon psilocybin therapy service centers in a nature retreat setting in rural Jackson County. "This is a minor victory for Silo Wellness and for potential patients across the nation," said Silo Wellness founder and CEO Mike Arnold, an Oregon attorney. "As previously drafted, service centers would have been relegated to urban areas. Highway noise and sirens aren't exactly the best setting for psychedelic therapy. But there's still one more vote to go."

Silo Wellness to Testify on Oregon Psilocybin Therapy Land Use Restrictions at Jackson County Planning Commission's Thursday Hearing; Other Corporate Updates

Silo Wellness Inc. (CSE: SILO) (OTCQB: SILFF) (FSE: 3K7A) ("Silo Wellness" or the "Company"), an Oregon-based publicly traded psychedelics company, announced that its Chief Executive Officer Mike Arnold, an Oregon lawyer, will testify Thursday, November 3, 2022, at the Jackson County Oregon Planning Commission's 9:00 a.m. hearing regarding amendments to the Jackson County Land Development Ordinance to add psilocybin therapy and retreat time, place, and manner regulations.

Silo recently announced an intended Jackson County psychedelic ranch retreat center near Ashland, Oregon. One of the major risk factors in the Oregon psilocybin industry is the real-time evolution of the legal and regulatory framework. Several cities and counties around the Oregon are voting November 8 on whether or not to opt out of Oregon's Ballot Measure 109 Psilocybin Service Initiative system. The state regulators are to begin accepting psilocybin therapy and retreat license applications in January 2023. Oregon is the first state to legalize psychedelic therapy and retreat business activities with Colorado hopefully following suit in the election next week.

Another Public Company First: Silo Wellness Opens Jamaican Ecotourism Psilocybin Microdosing Resort for the Psychedelic Curious; Shareholder Discounts for Psychedelic Vacations Available

Silo Wellness Inc. (CSE: SILO) (OTCQB: SILFF) (FSE: 3K7A) ("Silo Wellness" or the "Company"), a leading global psychedelics company, is pleased to announce that it has opened its first ecotourism microdosing psilocybin resort and retreat center at Go Natural Jamaica in Long Bay, Portland, Jamaica. "We have been bombarded by cost-conscious client inquiries wanting to explore nature with the help of psilocybin," explained Mike Arnold, an Oregon attorney and the founder of Silo Wellness. "They are what we consider 'psychedelic curious.' These are not looking to experiment with psychedelics for recreational purposes at a club or party. They are very intentional and mindful individuals looking to better understand themselves and their place in the universe. They aren't looking for mental health therapy or a deep dive ego death. They are wanting to learn about psilocybin while learning about themselves. This is an unmet need in the psychedelic space, and Silo Wellness is well positioned to assist.

"It is important that Silo Wellness help support the education of local governments and law enforcement, as we are the only Oregon-based publicly traded psychedelics company and the only Oregon-based company with experience providing legal psilocybin use [in Jamaica] through our psychedelic wellness retreats," stated Silo Wellness founder, a Lane County, Oregon, resident since 1998. "We want to prevent any misinformation comparing the roll out of this service-based wellness industry to any perceived mishaps from Oregon's experience in the cannabis space, particularly regarding diversion and impact on neighbors." In written testimony provided to the Board, Mr. Arnold explained that currently Silo Wellness is in advanced negotiations with property owners outside of unincorporated Lane County and didn't technically "have a dog in this fight" at this time.
