Kaya Holdings Awarded Psilocybin Service Center License, Launches The Sacred Mushroom Psychedelic Treatment Facility

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / May 7, 2024 / Kaya Holdings, Inc., ("KAYS" or the "Company") (OTCQB:KAYS) announced today that the Company has been awarded its license to operate a Psilocybin Service Center by the Oregon Health Authority (the "OHA").

Oregon is the only state in the US that has developed a licensing framework that allows for the administration of Psilocybin in a safe, legal setting under the guidance of State Licensed Facilitators. The Company, through its Fifth Dimension Therapeutics, Inc. subsidiary, plans to operate The Sacred Mushroom™ ("TSM"), a full-service psychedelic treatment center that will allow clients to receive Psilocybin Treatments in a setting offering significant experience differentiators and concept innovations. The Sacred Mushroom™ expects to service its first guests within the next thirty days.

Interior Views, The Sacred Mushroom™

Located on the top floor of the historic Falcon Building in downtown Portland and spread over approximately 11,000 square feet, The Sacred Mushroom™ will offer guests "room to roam," unsurpassed comfort, optional private rooms, activity zones with yoga, listening stations, journaling chairs and art expression, a special "sensation room," a relaxing indoor garden and customized experience through our proprietary Synergy By Design™ "your setting, your way" program.

According to Precedence Research, the U.S. behavioral health market was more than $83 billion in 2022 and is expected to exceed $136 billion by 2032. Psilocybin, a naturally occurring compound found in "magic mushrooms," is one of an emerging class of psychedelic medicines that contain potent psychoactive chemicals that can affect human perception, emotions, and other cognitive functions. Recent university medical studies have shown psilocybin treatment to be a potentially effective treatment path for people suffering from trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety disorders, addictions and other hard to treat mental health conditions.

Companies such as Compass Pathways, ATAI Life Sciences, and Cybin are engaged in developing synthetic versions of psilocybin and psilocin (the active ingredient in "magic mushrooms") to offer as alternative therapies for treatment resistant mental health disorders. Delivery of these synthetic psilocybin options, when available, are expected to be administered at licensed psychedelic treatment centers such as The Sacred Mushroom™.

"The introduction of legal psilocybin treatments in Oregon marks the beginning of perhaps the most disruptive force in the mental health sector, transforming treatment protocol and redirecting resources," states KAYS CEO Craig Frank. "Our distinctive guest experience model, the environment offered by the size and design of the facility and the dedication of our staff are designed to make The Sacred Mushroom™ the premier choice for anyone turning to psychedelics for relief or transformation. For these reasons I believe KAYS is well positioned to become a leader in the ‘delivery of care' of psychedelics."
