Silo Wellness has unveiled a series of psilocybin-assisted wellness retreats for 2022. Hosted in Jamaica’s Good Hope Villas in Trelawny parish, the retreats follow the “successful roll-out of Silo Wellness’s 2021 retreat offerings” and are “designed to accommodate strong demand for psychedelic tourism on the island”.
The emerging trend for Psychedelic Retreats was identified and explored in depth in the debut issue of Globetrender’s premium VOLT newsletter, which you can read here, in April 2021. Since then, the trend has been covered by many mainstream media publications, from The Guardian to The New York Times.
Silo Wellness is a leading psilocybin cultivator and facilitator of psychedelic retreats in Jamaica, a jurisdiction where the cultivation, extraction, and consumption of psilocybin mushrooms are not illegal. The company works closely with the island’s Indigenous Rastafarian community to implement and facilitate psilocybin retreats.In March 2021, Silo Wellness announced a multi-year licensing agreement with the family of legendary musician Bob Marley for the exclusive worldwide rights to brand, market and sell a distinct product line of functional and psychedelic mushrooms called Marley One.
Douglas K Gordon, CEO of Silo Wellness, says: “We are witnessing the rise of a new category in travel, dubbed ‘psychedelic tourism’. The feedback we’ve received from our psychedelic retreat attendees has been both inspiring and humbling.
“Across the globe, people are recognising the potential of psychedelic mushrooms and are eager to have those experiences. At Silo Wellness, we believe everyone has the right to access nature’s bounty of plants and fungi, and we’re proud to make this a reality through our latest curation of wellness retreats.”
