The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE: BOSS); (OTCQB: BOSQF); (Frankfurt:YG3) offers investors high-upside potential in several rapidly-growing markets
As the world responds to the global coronavirus pandemic, it’s critical that every precaution be taken to prevent the virus’ spread.
A number of companies have stepped up to help in this important fight, moving quickly to adapt on the fly and deliver supplies just as they are needed the most.
The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE: BOSS); (OTCQB: BOSQF); (Frankfurt:YG3) is a vertically integrated company that develops, licenses and sells plant-based products and formulas and conducts research into plant-based medicine in the $4.2 trillion global wellness market.
The Yield Growth Corp. announced that its subsidiary, Urban Juve, earned approval for hand sanitizer liquid spray manufacturing on March 27, just one week of its application being submitted.
In addition, the company announced that on April 2 it received approval from Health Canada for a second product; a hand sanitizer gel.
These fast track approvals will allow the company to complete a rapid initial manufacturing run which could translate into the direct sale to customers via the Urbanjuve.com web site within the next 30 days.
All packaging and raw materials have been secured for the initial production run and the company also plans to file an application with the FDA in order to sell hand sanitizer in the United States.
According to Reportsnreports.com, the global market for hand sanitizers is anticipated to reach $5.5 billion by 2024, up from $2.4 billion in 2017. CNBC also reported that sales of hand sanitizers increased by 470% in the first week of March this year compared to the same week a year earlier.
Urban Juve’s natural hand sanitizer liquid spray contains 65% alcohol, which is in line with Health Canada guidelines, and also has a refreshing and clean blend of peppermint, lavender and orange peel oils, all of which are known for their disinfecting properties and their ability to promote optimum skin health.
“I’m so impressed with the speed and efficiency with which Health Canada handled our application,” said Yield Growth Corp. CEO Penny White. “We are tremendously thankful to all of the policy makers in Canada and all around the world who are working tirelessly to come up with policies to fight the health and economic crisis at hand.”
“With two different formulas approved,” White continued, “we have more packaging options, which will allow us to complete additional manufacturing runs to better meet the urgent and unprecedented demand for products that limit the spread of COVID-19.”
Yield Growth intends to donate a portion of the hand sanitizers that it manufactures to workers on the front line. Yield Growth has already been donating self-care products to front line workers with over 500 products delivered to senior centers in the immediate area.
Yield Growth Corp. is Also an Emerging Market Leader in the Rapidly-Growing Psilocybin Mushroom Market
Of course, The Yield Growth Corp. is also active in another rapidly-growing market that offers investors a unique opportunity for high upside potential.
The psilocybin mushroom market right now stands poised for explosive potential growth thanks to three critical factors:
1) A growing push toward legalization, with California and Colorado leading the way in the United States…
2) Mounting scientific evidence showing the health benefits of psilocybin mushrooms, including the potential to help treat serious illnesses…
3) An increasing awareness in the mainstream media – including films, books and media personalities – of the potential health benefits associated with psilocybin mushrooms, which is helping bring nationwide legalization closer to reality.
To build on its success in this market with legal hemp and cannabis markets, The Yield Growth Corp. is now aggressively pursuing research and market opportunities in the psilocybin mushroom market.
Widespread North American Movement Underway to Decriminalize Psychedelic Mushrooms
According to the Financial Post, cannabis legalization has set a strong precedent for magic mushrooms.
In May 2019, Denver, Colorado voted to decriminalize mushrooms that contain psilocybin, and Oakland California did the same a few weeks later. The state of Oregon is working to do the same for 2020.i
And in October 2019, the U.S. FDA granted “breakthrough therapy” status to a London-based company to test psilocybin for treatment-resistant depression.
This trend toward legalization is growing rapidly: Vice reports that there is a growing lobby dedicated to advocating for psychedelics – and that they are well-organized and well-funded.iii Of course, this growing legalization movement is happening for good reason…
Psilocybin Mushrooms Have Shown the Potential for Significant Health Benefits
The health results that have been achieved worldwide with the support of psychedelics have caused a growing number of people to take notice.
Anecdotal evidence linking psilocybin to potential treatments for serious diseases goes back centuries.
And now modern science is confirming a number of important health benefits that have triggered explosive growth in the market.
For example, researchers at New York University found psilocybin mushrooms caused a “rapid and sustained” reduction in anxiety and depression in patients with cancer, as reported by the Financial Post.iv
And studies have shown that psilocybin could provide effective treatment for things like depression, alcohol addiction and many other psychological disorders.
- Johns Hopkins Medicine recently announced the launch of a Center for Psychedelic and Consciousness Research, with $17 million in capital earmarked for studying psychedelics.
- That announcement from Johns Hopkins came on the heels of Imperial College London’s launch of a similar center backed by $3.5 million in private donations.
- And the University of Toronto has opened its Centre for Psychedelic Studies, which will host the world’s first clinical trials on microdosing psilocybin.v
A Closer Look at the Investment Potential in the Psilocybin Mushroom Market
Here’s why the increase of science-backed evidence supporting the health benefits of psilocybin mushrooms offers a high-upside investment opportunity:
The global antidepressant drug market was valued at $13.7 billion in 2016 and is projected to grow to $15.9 billion by 2023.
One hundred million of those diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD) are said to suffer from treatment-resistant depression (TRD). This accounts for approximately 33% of MDD cases.vi
The FDA decision to fast track the testing of psilocybin could allow for psychedelic mushrooms to penetrate this market. Psychedelic mushrooms represent an exciting new opportunity for companies that can capitalize on cutting edge science and technology.
That makes the steps The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE: BOSS); (OTCQB: BOSQF); (Frankfurt:YG3) has already taken critically important, as the company works to become among the first publicly traded companies to establish legal production and distribution of psilocybin for medical research.
The Yield Growth Corp. Has Moved Quickly to Seize this Opportunity
The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE: BOSS); (OTCQB: BOSQF); (Frankfurt:YG3) has taken several significant steps to establish an early leadership position in the rapdly-growing psilocybin mushroom market, including establishing a new subsidiary – Flourish Mushroom Labs, Inc. – that is focused exclusively on the opportunity in both psychedelic and edible mushrooms.
Flourish Mushroom Labs aims to legally and safely commercialize psilocybin (magic) mushrooms and is tasked with becoming a leader in the modern renaissance of natural medicine. Flourish has already achieved several key milestones, including:
- Filing a U.S. provisional patent application for the use of psychedelic mushroom actives for weight loss. Anticipated benefits include reduced food cravings, counteracting compulsive overeating, and aiding in improving quality of diet by altering food choices.
- Entering into a binding letter of intent with Acres Agricultural Canada Corp. to jointly form a company in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to build a laboratory for the cultivation of and research and development into compounds and therapeutic use of psychedelic mushrooms.
- Acquired approximately 18% of Translational Life Sciences Inc., which aims to develop proprietary formulations using restricted substances to focus on unmet medical needs in opioid dependence, psychotic illness, pain management and traumatic brain injury, including concussion. The company also offers services to design and oversee clinical trials of restricted substances such as psilocybin based formulations for third parties.
The Translational Life Sciences team is comprised of physicians and scientists who are recognized thought leaders in the fields of Neurology, Pharmacology, Pain Management, Addiction and Biochemistry and have significant experience in the clinical application of cannabinoid compounds. These moves appear to be just the beginning of the steps The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE: BOSS); (OTCQB: BOSQF); (Frankfurt:YG3) is taking in order to establish a strong early presence in the rapidly growing psilocybin mushroom space.
