Being Facilitated Under a Schedule 1 Health Canada Dealer’s License

DENVER, Colorado, USA, August 18, 2020 /AxisWire/ Mydecine Innovations Group, Inc., (CSE:MYCO) (OTC:MYCOF) (FSE:0NFA) (“Mydecine™” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it is the first organization to exercise its cGMP(₁) capabilities under a special license to legally produce, transfer, sell, and export pharmaceutical-grade psilocybin, naturally derived from whole-mushroom extraction.

Under the coverage of a Health Canada Schedule 1 Controlled Drugs and Substances Dealer’s License, Mydecine™ has the full range of capabilities to extract fungi’s natural psychedelic compounds, such as psilocybin and psilocin from certain species of fruiting body mushrooms all the way through to distribution. Mydecine™ also has the ability to conduct the most advanced techniques to produce purified pharmaceutical-grade extract, then legally export its finished byproducts to its various research partners throughout the world, including but not limited to the Imperial College of London and Johns Hopkins University.

The Company is also capable of supporting commercial research institutions with product donations, including charitable contributions to provide its purified extracts and formulations to end-of-life distressed patients. The announcement comes on the heels of a recent landmark decision by Health Canada to permit four terminally ill patients to consume psilocybin mushrooms to ease their distress. This historic decision establishes a precedent that will pave the way for a wider adoption of psilocybin-based therapies.

“Mydecine’s breakthrough to legally supply naturally-sourced psilocybin within our spore-to-sale™ process will be a major advancement for mental therapeutics, due to the fact that these unique psychedelic compounds are both safe and effective for afflictions, such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD,” quoted Damon Michaels, COO and Co-Founder of Mydecine™.

There is still debate as to which is more successful in psychedelic-based treatments between naturally derived psilocybin or the use of a synthetic form. Given Mydecine’s full legal ability to access both types of active compounds, the Company is poised to internally answer that question as well as aid various qualified groups also conducting this type of research. In theory, there are a plethora of added benefits in regard to the entourage effect(₂) of naturally-sourced psilocybin versus the synthetic route. Additionally, Mydecine™ is developing a number of unique API’s(₃) from their naturally-sourced cGMP psychedelic extracts. Mydecine™ will also be conducting R&D to produce novel proprietary formulations by synergizing psychedelic fungi compounds with other various API’s; Mydecine™ will then attach their formulations to their exclusive delivery mechanisms. Mydecine™ plans to utilize these psychedelic medicinal formulations in various clinical environments around the world in aspiration to better the lives of many.

The Company notes that although several international companies and research institutions are permitted to utilize synthesized psilocybin, the process is extremely challenging and cost prohibitive(₄) with a single gram having the price tag of thousands of dollars. Being able to legally extract psilocybin from its natural source, Mydecine™ will hope to reduce these significant costs and improve the scalability of world-class research initiatives and novel therapies.

CEO and Director of Mydecine™, Joshua Bartch stated, “We are extremely grateful to have the ability to provide cGMP psychedelic API’s to qualified organizations, research partners, nonprofits, and clinical groups throughout the globe. We believe the reason current psilocybin-based research initiatives come with a very high cost using inefficiently produced synthetic psilocybin is simply due to a lack of capabilities and legal restraints. Mydecine’s legal capabilities through the dealer’s license will incorporate our range of abilities, which will be valuable for naturally-sourced medicine paired with new-age technology. We believe our achievement is the first-of-its-kind.”

1 Current Good Manufacturing Practices. GMP is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to the best quality standards.

2The“entourage effect” is a proposed mechanism by which active compounds act synergistically to modulate the overall effects of multiple active compounds working together to produce a polypharmaceutical medicine.

3Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient/s are single or poly ingredients in pharmaceutical medicines that are biologically active.

4 Current synthesized psilocybin applied to recent psychedelic research sells for ~$7-10k USD per gram.

Vancouver – July 21, 2020 /AxisWire/ Mydecine Innovations Group Inc. (CSE: MYCO) (OTCMKTS: MYCOF) (FSE:0NF) (“Mydecine” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary Mindleap Health Inc. ( “Mindleap” ) has signed an agreement dated July xx, 2020  with Brightmind (“Brightmind”) to launch a comprehensive meditation program on Mindleap’s advanced digital health platform. Under the terms of the agreement Brightmind will provide specialised meditation content to Mindleap and Mindleap will make that content available for purchase on the platform. 

Brightmind is a leading meditation app that provides customized and practical instruction by world-class meditation experts. Brightmind offers a robust curriculum that is based on an approach to teaching developed over the past 40 years by the esteemed meditation educator Shinzen Young

Brightmind is the first and only app that makes Shinzen’s powerful system easily available. The Brightmind app has been downloaded over 100,000 times and has been featured by Apple in their coveted “New Apps We Love” section, as well as Forbes and Huffington Post. Shinzen’s system is so clear and well organized that neuroscience researchers at Harvard and other top universities use his system to design their experiments and have brought Shinzen on as a research consultant.

Mindleap Founder and CEO Nikolai Vassev commented: “Our vision is for a world where people can make lasting life changes by having advanced tools and access to expert mental health professionals right from the palm of their hand. Mindfulness can have numerous benefits, everything from decreased stress and sadness to increased levels of happiness and focus. Brightmind’s programs have provided radical transformations for thousands of people and the partnership with Mindleap should lead to more value for our customers and platform. 

Over the past 20 years, meditation and mindfulness-based programs have become increasingly popular. Doctors and mental health professionals are embracing meditation because scientific studies are beginning to show that it works, particularly for stress-related conditions. 

The market for meditation apps has exploded into the mainstream and shows little sign of slowing down. In 2019 alone, the meditation market reached $1.2 Billion (USD). Employers are embracing mindfulness training and leading apps like Headspace and Calm are reaching over 50 million downloads while commanding billion dollar valuations. The major players offer relatively simple and shallow meditation instruction, which their users quickly exhaust while Brightmind’s comprehensive and proven programs offer a much more robust value to end users.  

Meditation, when practiced and contextualized well, is one of the most effective methods for improving mental health. 

Brightmind Founder and CEO Toby Sola commented: “Meditation is a way to upgrade our mental software to meet the demands of our rapidly changing world. We have been hard at work to deliver exceptional programs and are thrilled to collaborate with Mindleap so we can deliver our programs to even more people.” 

The Brightmind Meditation program will be a part of five other digital health programs that will be offered on Mindleap later this fall. The scalability, consistency, and reduced costs to end users create more comprehensive and versatile offering for the Mindleap platform.

EUREKA, Calif. – July 21, 2020 – Papa & Barkley, the leading cannabis wellness company in California, best known for its award-winning topicals and tinctures, today announced the launch of its Releaf Gummies, a line of sugar-free, gluten-free, keto-friendly, zero-calorie, full spectrum, and solventless edibles. They come in four fruity flavors: Tart Apple and Berry Burst, which are vegan, and Juicy Orange and Wild Strawberry.   

Designed for health-conscious consumers, Releaf Gummies are Papa & Barkley’s first line of edible wellness products. Great for stress, anxiety, relaxation, sleep, and acute pain, each gummy contains 5mg of THC, making it easy for consumers to control and increase their dose as needed. 

According to Headset, a market data subsidiary of Nielsen, consumer demand for cannabis-infused gummies has surged in California since March, suggesting that consumers are purchasing more edibles due to concerns around respiratory health and COVID-19. During the ongoing pandemic, edibles has maintained its momentum as the top selling product category making up roughly 56% of legal cannabis sales in California during May this year.

Unlike the majority of gummies on the market, which are made with corn syrup, sugar, unnatural dyes and chemically-processed cannabis, Releaf Gummies are formulated with coconut oil infused solventless hash – the collection of ripe, cannabinoid-rich crystals of the cannabis plant. Papa & Barkley’s unique and proprietary chemical-free process maintains the full spectrum of the plant’s cannabinoids, terpenes and phytonutrients, resulting in a multi-dimensional, balanced mind and body sensation. Paired with clean and natural ingredients, Releaf Gummies are easily digestible and deliver a consistent effect. 

“Releaf Gummies are the only wellness gummies in California’s cannabis market designed for consumers with dietary preferences or restrictions, including athletes or individuals with health conditions that require a healthy diet,” said Papa & Barkley Co-Founder and Chief Products Officer, Guy Rocourt. “We partnered with Patricia Jones, the founder of Sistah’s Vegan, a black-owned business in our hometown of Eureka, to develop the vegan flavor profiles. From there, we created two additional fruit flavors using the same focus on health and clean ingredients.”

“As we grow, we remain committed to making clean and natural products that meet the health needs of our customers,” said Adam Grossman, Papa & Barkley Founder and CEO. “Our Releaf Gummies are addressing a gap in the market by providing consumers with delicious, sugar-free gummy options that, like all our products, are made without chemicals, are full spectrum, solventless, and use only natural ingredients.”

Each package of Papa & Barkley’s Releaf Gummies contains 100mg of cannabinoids in 20 gummies and costs $16. They are now available online and in dispensaries throughout California. To learn more, visit papaandbarkley.com/releafgummy/.

ABOUT PAPA & BARKLEY

Papa & Barkley™ is the leading cannabis wellness brand in California that creates highly effective, natural products that unlock the healing potential of the cannabis plant. All products are made using solventless, whole plant infusion processes with sun-grown cannabis and hemp flowers grown in the United States and produced in the company’s licensed, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities.

Papa & Barkley was inspired by a son’s mission to ease his father’s debilitating back pain. Today the team is committed to caring for loved ones by producing safe, natural, and efficacious products using the whole plant. Papa & Barkley’s clean, chemical-free products are offered in THC-rich, CBD-rich, and Hemp CBD formulas, to address a variety of needs.

X2-Main-Header-Background-1280x771.jpg

July 8, 2020 /AxisWire/ Kind LED Grow Lights has announced the X², a game-changing innovation in commercial grow technology. Developed as the perfect solution to vertical racking and overhead grow operations, the X² was specifically designed for close proximity growing, capitalizing on valuable tiered growing space while maintaining a large coverage footprint and even PPFD output. This means increased harvest weight and quality, and unmatched potential for financial returns on your harvest.

The revolutionary concentric square design and unique diode arrangement of the X² definitively rejects the dated concepts and common shortcomings of popular LED fixtures, offering a more even PPFD across the canopy than the ubiquitous parallel bar design seen in commercial fixtures. This ensures you never sacrifice an inch of potential growth across the canopy or have to deal with any troublesome hotspots putting your harvest at risk, and ultimately increases production and overall plant health.

Every component of the X² has been over-engineered to withstand the rigors of commercial grow environments. Heat is potentially disastrous to electronic components, and the X²’s substantial heatsink means components remain cool, ensuring a safe grow environment and extending the lifespan of your fixture long beyond the competitors.

Taking cues from other award-winning lights in the Kind LED family, the X² features a 3-Channel fully customizable spectrum when paired with a compatible controller, enabling growers to match the needs of any plant at any stage of growth. This means only one fixture is needed to get the job done, from seed to harvest. When paired with a compatible controller, more than 500 X² fixtures can be controlled simultaneously.

“As a grower who first learned on LED lights over 10 years ago, I have always loved the possibilities that lay ahead,” said Brandon Okman, owner of Best Buds Botanical. “The X² by Kind LED has reached the pinnacle I hoped for. The raw science behind this light is something to be admired. From the quality build to the perfect balance of spectrum, you can tell they poured their heart and soul into this light. With the X² I can truly say we’ve reached the point of surpassing what your standard HPS can do. I’ve been able to save money on wattage and AC costs while improving my overall quality. Kind X² is the game-changer that this industry has been waiting for.”

“I have been testing the X² light against other LEDs on the market,” added Scott Bulkeley, lead cultivator at Top Shelf Cannaseurs. “Hands down, the X² has a far superior build quality over the other lights, which you can especially tell once you grow with one firsthand. It’s definitely been built to last and Kind didn’t cut any corners in the design, which is exactly what you want in a commercial light. Yield is similar to that what I’m used to with a DE light, which again, blows away the competition for LEDs. The control features are really easy to use and the added tunability feature is something no other company offers. This light is the whole package and then some, and I’m extremely happy with the results.”

Kind LED’s new X² fixture has a true PPF of 1650 μmol/sec with almost every photon absorbed by the plant, and an efficacy of 2.22 μmol/J. It features 384 OSRAM OSLON® SSL diodes and a max wattage of 750w, with a lifetime of over 75,000 hours and a 5-year warranty. Like all Kind LED products, this fixture is backed by industry-leading customer service. The X² will be available on July 8th, 2020, with a retail price of $1,695. An optional controller is also available for $299.95.

About Kind LED Grow Lights:

Kind LED Grow Lights is the industry leader in indoor LED grow lights. Kind LED consulted with hundreds of professional hydroponic and soil growers to rigorously research and develop their cutting edge LED indoor grow light technology that has since revolutionized the indoor growing industry.

New York City – May 15, 2020 /AxisWire/ AxisWire, the first newswire distribution service and digital PR tech-suite dedicated solely to the cannabis industry, and Green Market Report (GMR), the cannabis industry’s source for credible in-depth financial reporting, have announced The State of Cannabis Media 2020 virtual conference. The event will take place online Tuesday, May 19th at 1 pm EST. 

Tickets are limited, but the event will be live-streamed on GMR social media and will also be shared on the GMR news site following the event.

This free virtual conference will be open to the public and will address the current state of affairs for companies who would like to understand how to utilize digital communications, PR, and media to advance their messages in a time when no events can support or promote cannabis brands. 

“Events were the main source of exposure for cannabis brands as advertising remains largely off-limits to our industry,” explained AxisWire & Green Market Report co-founder Cynthia Salarizadeh. “When this pandemic took over, it left our industry and most cannabis brands who do not have the support of a public relations firm without many options. We felt the best way for us to provide some guidance was to create a free virtual event where brands can hear directly from journalists and PR professionals about how to navigate during these times.”

The panelists include the top cannabis journalists from Business Insider, Adweek, Forbes, Benzinga, Marijuana Business Daily, High Times, El Planteo, and the author of The New Chardonnay as well as the CEO’s and Managing Partners of Mattio Communications, GVM Communications and KCSA Strategic Communications. 

1:00-1:05 Introduction

1:05-1:10 State of Journalism 

1:10-1:25 State of Public Relations for Cannabis 

1:25-1:35 Suggested Avenues for Brands on a Budget

1:50-1:55 Prioritizing Cannabis Stories 

1:55-2:00 Closing Remarks

“Online screen time has increased as many of us are in various states of lockdown, which has increased the demand for content. Unfortunately, media companies have been forced to scale back as a result of the pandemic creating huge disruption in the supply and demand for news,” said Green Market Report CEO and Co-founder Debra Borchardt. “We believed that an event like this was needed as we all pivot and adapt to a new normal in the cannabis industry. We are stronger together.”

The Athlete-Founded Non-Profit Is Collaborating With LeagueSide, The Nation’s Leading Youth Sports Sponsorship Platform, To Generate Immediate Assistance for Youth Sports Across the Country

Philadelphia, Pa. – May 7, 2020 /AxisWire/ Athletes For CARE(A4C), in partnership with LeagueSide, is proud to launch #SaveYouthSports, a funding initiative for youth sports. Due to the financial impact of COVID-19 on families and organizations, youth sports programs across the country are suffering. More than half of youth sports programs are at risk of permanent shut-down leaving more than 20 million children without access.

In order to save youth sports, Athletes for CARE and LeagueSide are embarking on a fundraising campaign to help raise much needed funds to preserve youth sports organizations throughout North America.

“As an organization of more than 200 professional athletes whose athletic careers started in youth sports, we understand the importance of these programs. Children who participate in sports learn significant life skills, make friends, stay active, and for some, athletic programs provide a safe haven from abuse or neglect at home,” said Anna Valent, Executive Director of Athletes for CARE.

“Canceled leagues and tournaments result in lost revenue for organizers (predominately non-profits).” said Evan Brandoff, Co-Founder and CEO of LeagueSide. “Families are asking for refunds and youth sports organizations’ bank accounts are running dry, this compounds the problem of non-participation among children from low income families who are already 400% more likely to quit a sport due to costs,” He added.

Athletes for CARE Ambassadorsare proud to be rallying together to support this immediate need, and #SaveYouthSports. Each and every athlete has been impacted by youth sports which has served as the foundation for their professional careers.

“Losing youth sports is devastating due to so many kids missing out on building critical life-long skills such as discipline and teamwork as well as how to win and lose in life with grace. Great leaders I meet in all walks of life share how sports has given them the ability to fail and lose but still rise up for victory!,” said NFL Hall of Famer and “NFL 100” Member, Ronnie Lott.

“Youth sports changed my life. It taught me self-confidence, self-efficiency and independence. I played adaptive sports in an able-bodied world, and the impact of my relationships to my teammates was inclusive and helped me become who I am today,” said Kaitlyn Verfuerth, Team USA Paralympian 2004, 2008 and 2016 Wheelchair Tennis.

“As a kid I was bullied on a daily basis due to a bad skin disease. Playing youth sports helped me redirect the anger I had for the bullies, and channel that anger towards track & field and Martial arts.” Said Bas Rutten, Former MMA, Kickboxer and Wrestler. “Youth sports taught me to listen to instructions, discipline, interacting with other kids, improved my cognitive skills, more importantly, it gave me a purpose and later in life a profession. I was a super hyper kid, what they now call ADD, so playing youth sports helped not only me, but also my family and everybody around me from going nuts.” Rutten added.

“As an adolescent my vision for getting out of Louisiana was to utilize my athletic skills to create a platform which would grant me the opportunity to receive an education scholastically, so I worked my tail off in middle school and high school.” Said Leonard A Marshall Jr., Former NFL Defensive Lineman. “My youth sports experience on the football, baseball, and basketball fields allowed me to gain the discipline to play professionally and also develop the character of a competitor with many of my friends.” he added.

Corporate sponsors and individuals who recognize the value of youth sports are encouraged to donate to #SaveYouthSports and participate in sharing the campaign. For more information on getting involved or contributing to #SaveYouthSports, visit www.saveyouthsports2020.com.
