A Vancouver health and wellness company is developing oral strips infused with psilocybin.

Love Pharma Inc. plans to utilize the same process it currently uses for its cannabis product Auralief.

On its website, the company describes Auralief as paper-thin strips that dissolve under the tongue to administer THC and CBD.

Love Pharma was established in 2020, and it focuses mental health and sexual wellness through cannabis and psychedelics-infused products.

Psilocybin is the psychoactive substance found in so-called magic mushrooms.

The compound is the subject of numerous studies exploring its use in treating an array of mental and physical conditions.

Sublingual or under-the-tongue administration of drugs ensures quick absorption into a person’s blood system.

To explain, the area under a person’s tongue has blood vessels.

In addition, sublingual delivery also provides a discreet way of consuming psilocybin.

Love Pharma explained in a media release Wednesday (October 20) that the oral strips ensure “accurate dosing”.

“We recognize the need for discreet, consumer-friendly applications; and with its delivery of consistent dosing, this sublingual strip hits all the marks,”company chief operating officer Joshua Maurice said.

The company trades in the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker symbol LUV.

As of this post, LUV shares are trading at $0.07 each.
