Startup is building world's largest magic mushroom farm in Jamaica

Psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic mushrooms, is trending at the Next Big Thing in medicine and personal wellness. Now, a Canadian startup called Anahit Therapeutics is nearly done constructing a large psilocybin cultivation farm in Jamaica, where it hopes to grow psychedelic mushrooms to use in new pharmaceuticals.
The plan is to build modular cultivation facilities that not only grow the psychedelic mushrooms but extract their active ingredient, psilocybin. Doctors have investigated psilocybin’s ability to treat myriad conditions ranging from depression to eating disorders, and this new facility is a major bid to bring those treatments to reality.
