VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 4, 2020 – Champignon Brands Inc. (“Champignon” or the “Company”) (CSE: SHRM) (FWB: 496) (OTCQB: SHRMF), a human optimization sciences company focused on applying novel and natural treatment protocols to address a broad range of disorders and deficiencies with an emphasis on psychedelic medicine, has advanced its North American new clinical entity (NCE) expansion stratagem via the formation of a dedicated planning committee (the “Committee”).
The Committee has been mandated with accelerating the Company’s entry into the U.S., where it plans to open and/or acquire a minimum of five NCEs during 2020. Champignon continues to conduct discussions with revenue generating clinics located in California, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Florida and Missouri.
“We will look to capitalize on the fragmented nature of the U.S. ketamine clinic marketplace with the objective of creating a consortium of integrated mood disorder treatment and research facilities,” commented Gareth Birdsall, CEO of Champignon. “By leveraging existing protocols, data sets and SOPs from our flagship clinic, the Canadian Rapid Treatment Centre of Excellence, arguably the most advanced integrated mood disorder centre in North America, we will improve economics, increase patient enrollment and function as the pre-eminent brick and mortar staging ground for novel molecule discovery initiatives. Champignon remains bullish on the U.S. marketplace due to favourable co-payer infrastructure, as well as a vast addressable patient population.”
