VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 05, 2020 — PRIMO NUTRACEUTICALS INC. (CSE:PRMO) (BUGVF) (8BV.F) (8BV.F) (8BV.MU) (8BV.SG) (“Primo”) is pleased to announce that further to its letter of intent (“LOI”) with World Agri-Minerals Ltd. (“WAM”), announced in the Company’s news release dated June 4, 2020, Primo and WAM have conducted discussions relating to the development and production of a proprietary mineral blend specially designed for employment by psilocybin mushroom growers.
The Company has identified growing global interest in the potential medical applications of psilocybin and other psychedelic mushrooms. With world-wide interest in this burgeoning Agri-landscape, WAM is currently developing a new proprietary mineral blend focused on enhancing the production and quality of mushrooms and in particular psychedelic mushroom production. WAM claims that their current research and testing will result in benefits similar to those attained when using their already successful GENESIS 89 GOLD blend on Hemp and Cannabis production. With the new WAM proprietary mineral natural mushroom blend, a healthy more vibrant and 100% organic product can be grown more economically thereby allowing product cost savings for the consumers in addition to enabling growers to be more efficient and profitable. WAM claims that that GENESIS 89 GOLD can increase Hemp and Cannabis productivity anywhere from 15% to 35%. WAM believes that a new mushroom blend could provide similar if not greater production numbers for psilocybin and other mushroom varieties grown for medical applications.
The Mushroom Market
According to the Psychedelic Science Review, the global market for conventional anti-depressants was valued at $13.7 billion in 2016 and is projected to grow to $15.9 billion by 2023.
Andy Jagpal, President Comments:
“We believe that Primo is especially well positioned to capitalize on the emerging ‘shroom boom’ Psilobycin and other varieties of mushrooms are quickly becoming a viable option for mental and physical health treatment. The market for investment opportunity is massive for a nutraceutical company like Primo which has demonstrated its ability to receive NPNs (Natural Product Number) from the Health Products and Food Branch of Health Canada for nutraceutical products.”
