PAB operates a GMP compliant facility and will be contract packing HAVN Life naturally-derived psilocybin, following the necessary protocols to allow for export from Jamaica and import into Canada, the US and Europe.

Benjamins, Hypha Wellness, and HAVN Life Sciences is a step in the right direction" remarks Hon. Floyd Green, MP, Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries. "The sustainability of the industry will depend largely on our ability to effectively research psilocybin mushrooms and to combine Agriculture with manufacturing," he adds.
