What are the requirements for a psychedelics licence in Canada?
Producing psychedelics in Canada, such as MDMA, LSD, or psilocybin, requires a Dealer’s Licence under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. A reputable lawyer and consultant can help you apply for and obtain a CDSA Dealer’s Licence. The application requires that you outline the substances, activities, and key personnel associated with your production site. There are also requirements that you specify certain security related information, and you must determine the safe vault that is required by your situation.
Why should I hire a lawyer to apply for my psychedelic licence?
In addition to preparing and submitting your psilocybin licence, a lawyer can provide legal opinion letters, file trademark applications, review leases, draft and review joint venture and supply agreements, and incorporate your company. It is always best that your psychedelic licence consultant is also a licensed lawyer. Harrison Jordan is a lawyer licensed by the Law Society of Ontario.
How do I get a licence to legally possess and use “magic mushrooms” aka psilocybin?
In order to legally possess “magic mushrooms”, also known as psilocybin, one must obtain a legal authorization. There are three ways you can obtain legal authorization. The first is with what’s called a section 56 exemption. This is an exemption from Canada’s drug laws in respect of the substance. The government has signalled they are not going to issue s. 56 exemptions as freely as before, because there are two other ways to legally obtain psilocybin or MDMA legally.
The second way is to participate in a clinic trial that authorizes you to use magic mushrooms. You can find a list of active clinical trials at https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/drugs-health-products/drug-products/health-canada-clinical-trials-database.html.
The third way to obtain legal access to psilocybin is through the Special Access Program. Your doctor can apply for you to obtain treatment with psilocybin through the SAP program. Please note that the program has its own requirements, and you will not be able to directly possess the psilocybin. It will have to be administered by your physician or an agent such as a nurse or psychotherapist.
