Mydecine Discovers 40 New Compounds In Mushrooms

Mydecine Innovations Group (NEO: MYCO) (OTC: MYCOF) reports that its R&D team has discovered over 40 compounds with pharmacological potential in mushrooms. Mydecine said that it has screened over 25 mushroom species, including various varieties of p. cubensis, and has selected and analyzed over 40 unique compounds found throughout the various species. Of these compounds, a large majority appear to have never been reported before and could be vital to the critical effects of naturally-sourced mushrooms on human health and wellbeing as well as synergistic effects with pure psilocybin.

“Most mushrooms, especially the noxious species, have not been investigated for their chemical components,” says Senior Scientist, Duff Sloley. “Most of these compounds are evolved to protect the mushroom’s fruiting body from predation by insects, nematodes, and bacteria and are complex and metabolically expensive to produce. Since these compounds are evolved to affect biological systems and aspects of metabolic pathways, they stand a higher chance of proving to be useful pharmaceuticals,” he continued. “As a consequence, studies of the structural, chemical, and possibly fortuitous pharmacological properties of these unknown compounds may lead to the development of beneficial pharmacological treatments for a number of disease states.”

“We have seen accelerated progress through Mydecine’s fully integrated research and cultivation facilities,” stated Josh Bartch, CEO of Mydecine. “These tremendous advances in our treatment development could not have been possible without our state-of-the-art R&D center and world-class research team. We not only have the ability to discover new compounds, but test them for efficacy, manufacture them for clinical research through a scientific rigor. This end-to-end capability is a critical to successful drug development and sets Mydecine apart.”

The focus on mushrooms is part of the company’s overall strategy to separate itself from its cannabis assets. By doing so, Mydecine can then list its shares on the NASDAQ exchange in the U.S. The company said it had expected to receive the interim order from the Supreme Court of British Columbia on or about June 7, 2021. If shareholders approve, the Spin-Out is anticipated to close on or about the week of July 12, 2021.
