Cybin Granted DEA Schedule I Manufacturing License
Cybin Inc. (NEO: CYBN) (OTCMKTS: CLXPF), a biopharmaceutical company focused on progressing “Psychedelics to TherapeuticsTM”, today announced that the Company has been granted a Schedule I manufacturing license from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (“DEA”). The DEA license is a federal requirement for any investigators who intend to study, produce, analyze or otherwise work with Schedule I controlled substances.
The DEA license is for the Company’s research lab in the Boston area. The license will allow the Company to further become a hub for innovation and drug discovery. Previously, the Company conducted much of its research and development (“R&D”) work through globally licensed research organizations in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K., and through certain in-house capabilities. With the DEA license, the Company will be able to vastly expand its internal R&D capabilities to support innovative drug discovery and delivery involving Schedule I compounds.
We are pleased with the progression of our clinical and regulatory efforts since the Company’s formation. This new license further positions the Company as a truly integrated biopharmaceutical company that can continue to work towards progressing Psychedelics to Therapeutics.Doug Drysdale, Cybin’s Chief Executive Officer
