Mycotopia Therapies Inc. Update on Ei.Ventures and Strategic Investments
MIAMI, May 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mycotopia Therapies Inc. (OTC Pink: TPIA), a biopharma company focused on research, technology, and the development of medical psychedelics, and Ei.Ventures Inc., a technology company empowering mental wellness through psychoactive compounds, nutraceuticals and web 3.0, are pleased to announce several strategic investments to advance the combined company's business plan. Ei.Ventures completed its Regulation A+ financing round on March 22, 2022 after announcing plans to go public in a $360 million transaction with Mycotopia Therapies on December 07, 2021.
The combined company will be renamed PSLY.COM and focus its efforts on developing fungi and plant based Botanical Psychedelic API and Therapeutics instead of single molecule synthetic drugs with the belief that research will continue to confirm the importance of a synergistic approach. This will set PSLY.COM apart from virtually every other company in the space developing synthetic versions of Psilocybin. Ei.Ventures holds the IP for the extraction process of three botanical potential API compounds, Psilocybin, DMT and MDMA. PSLY.COM plans to further develop this API and file a Drug Master File with the FDA, which will provide the opportunity to potentially sell the API to other organizations while protecting its IP.
David Nikzad, founder and CEO of Ei.Ventures explains: “It has always been – and remains to be – our mission to impact one billion people through natural therapies and remedies. I believe our recent strategic corporate actions and investments speak volumes that we are on target – and the momentum is accelerating.”
UPDATE ON RECENT ACHIEVEMENTS:
- Strategic Investment: Avicanna Inc.
On the recent $1.111 million investment in Toronto-based Avicanna Inc. (TSX: AVCN) (OTCQX: AVCNF) (FSE: 0NN), Nikzad continues: “We are excited to make this strategic investment in Avicanna, and believe in the Avicanna team and their mission to develop advanced and proprietary plant-based formulations. We intend to scale our investment and bring our blockchain, Web 3.0 and Metaverse assets to increase our share of the psychedelic market while supporting the continued success of Avicanna and its products.”
Avicanna is a commercial stage, international biopharmaceutical company with existing and planned licenses in cannabis, CBD, and psychedelics. With a pharmaceutical pipeline that includes more than 50 formulations in development, Avicanna will be a strategic partner in Ei.Ventures’ development of its proprietary, plant-based formulations.
- Strategic Investment: Odyssey Elixir
Ei.Ventures has also made a recent investment in privately held Odyssey Elixir. The $1.111 million commitment will help Fort Lauderdale-based Odyssey scale its line of ground-breaking functional mushroom beverages, which have been well received in multiple markets across the U.S. With Ei.Ventures support, capital and community, Odyssey will be a continued strategic partner in Ei.Ventures’ development of functional mushroom products.
Further, the Ei.Ventures’ team is strategizing with both Avicanna and Odyssey to launch a retail store in the metaverse that contains all of the products from both companies, respectively.
- Update on LOI with Mycotopia:
As previously reported, Ei.Ventures continues to move forward with its plans to go public in a $360 million transaction with Mycotopia Therapies. The Miami-based company provides psychedelic therapies through technology-focused, data-driven, and medical-based solutions for people dealing with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, PTSD, ADHD, autism, and addictions.
Founder Jason Hobson explains: “With these recent corporate actions, we continue on our way to provide the healing benefits, therapies, and treatments both online and offline at a time when they are needed more than ever. We will continue to develop our presence in Web3 and Blockchain in order to achieve transparency and in keeping with our vision for 100% plant based and non-synthetic products. As Ei.Ventures becomes a public company, we will be able to provide liquidity for our shareholders, as well as gain access to the capital markets in order to fund future growth.”
According to a recent article by CNBC, the metaverse will be predominately populated by Gen Z and subsequent generations, who will have exclusively grown up in the digital world. A recent study by Razorfish and Vice Media Group indicated that Gen Z gamers spend twice as much time hanging out with friends in the metaverse than they do in real life. More than half said they would like to experience making money in the metaverse; 33% would like to experience building a career there; and 20% of their entertainment/leisure budgets will be earmarked for in-game purchases over the next five years.
“These strategic acquisitions made by Ei.Ventures set the stage for future growth in the psychedelic sector. As Mycotopia Therapies and Ei.Ventures combine to form PSLY.com, we intend to be the industry leader in developing synthetic versions of Psilocybin. As the digital and physical worlds come together in web 3.0, we are acquiring key assets and developing partnerships that will play a critical role in the development of metaverse platforms. These transactions will deliver compelling value for all of our shareholders, position our company to achieve our growth objectives and advance our position in the psychedelic sector as we take the combined company to the next level.”
