Oregon psilocybin centers set to open this year

Following the voter decision to legalize psilocybin therapy treatments in the state, Oregon’s Health Authority is aiming to open psilocybin treatment centers as soon as 2023.

State regulators are currently accepting license applications for manufacturers, testing labs, service centers and facilitators. Once enough licenses for all 4 categories are granted, service centre doors can open. This may be easier said than done, however, as licensing fees present a significant economic barrier to those hoping to apply.

Licensing fees for facilitators are $2,000 a year, while service centers, manufacturers, and testing labs required to pay $10,000 per year to maintain their licenses.

The OHA also reiterates that  the state’s psilocybin model follows a different path than that of cannabis regulation. “This is not a dispensary model,” says OHA psilocybin services manager Angela Allbee. “You won’t be able to go into a dispensary and purchase psilocybin and then leave and take it off-site with you.”
