…DEA license to grow psilocybin
Ohio State University is about to grow psychedelic mushrooms… the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has issued a license to Ohio State University that allows researchers to cultivate psilocybin mushrooms for use in scientific studies.
The new license issued by the DEA allows Ohio State and Inner State, Inc. to grow whole psilocybin mushrooms to produce the compound naturally. Under the terms of the license, all cultivation of psilocybin mushrooms will take place in a federally registered facility in accordance with strict DEA regulations. “By combining cutting-edge techniques in genomics and metabolomics, we have the opportunity to obtain a high-resolution picture of the chemical diversity of mushrooms that have remained difficult to study for several decades,” said Ohio State researchers Dr. Jason Slot and Dr. Kou-San Ju.
