ABOUT GREEN PARROT LABS CORP.
Green Parrot Labs is a company with operations based in the Caribbean and plans to offer wellness centres and research and development into biosynthesis pathways for psilocybin and cannabinoids.
Psilocybin has drawn increasing attention in the last decade as a potential natural treatment for mental health conditions. The mental health market is estimated to rise to $240 billion USD by 2026, and 1 in 6 Americans are believed to suffer from mental health at any one point.1 In 2018, an article published by Johns Hopkins University recommended the government reduce psilocybin's status to a Schedule IV drug - one with low potential for abuse.
The operations of Green Parrot plan to take advantage of the generous laws in Barbados, Jamaica and the British Virgin Islands towards medical tourism and research into rare compounds. Magic mushrooms grow naturally and may be legally cultivated and consumed in Jamaica and the British Virgin Islands, making the islands an excellent location to conduct research into the compound.
Green Parrot plans to offer services that provide a tailored treatment program for individuals suffering from inflammatory bowel disease in specialized wellness centres. Medical tourism is well established in the Caribbean; cheaper rates of surgery for the same quality of treatment attract many visitors from the US and Canada. Barbados has one of the few licensed medical tourism facilities in the Caribbean, displaying its potential for future expansion.
