Silo Wellness and Kaivalya Kollectiv announce psychedelic retreats
Global psychedelics company Silo Wellness announced on Wednesday that it is partnering with Los Angeles-based Kaivalya Kollectiv to offer psychedelic retreats using the chemical 5-MeO-DMT. The partnership expands Silo’s portfolio of psychedelic product and retreat offerings, which currently include psilocybin and ketamine.
Douglas K. Gordon, CEO of Silo Wellness, stated in a company press release that emerging psychedelic therapies may offer new opportunities for mental health and wellbeing.
“Psychedelic experiences can be profoundly transformative and deeply healing,” said Gordon. “We are excited to add 5-MeO-DMT retreats to our portfolio, especially at a time when so many people struggle with mental health problems and are looking for herbal alternatives to help them on their way to better self-actualization support. ”
As part of the newly announced partnership, Silo Wellness will operate two 5-MeO-DMT retreats in Jamaica, where the company is already running psilocybin-supported retreats and workshops on growing mushrooms and truffles.
Kaivalya Kollectiv is a Californian wellness company that conducts psychedelic integrated spiritual coaching and facilitates retreats in Mexico, Jamaica and Costa Rica. Joël Brierre, the company’s founder and CEO, said, “Everyone on the planet should have access to the life-changing properties of psychedelics.”
“When used properly, 5-MeO-DMT can be one of the most powerful tools known to man, giving participants a brief but intense mystical experience,” said Brierre. “We are excited to work with other pioneers in the psychedelic industry like Silo Wellness to expand the resources and tools available to support people on their journey to greater enlightenment and improved self-actualization.”

The chemical 5-MeO-DMT is a potent psychedelic drug that is four to six times more potent than its better-known cousin DMT (N, N-dimethyltryptamine). 5-MeO-DMT, commonly known by street names such as “Toad” and “The God Molecule,” shows promise in the treatment of certain medical conditions and may improve general well-being, mindfulness and mental health symptoms with a single inhalation.
The compound 5-MeO-DMT occurs in a large number of plants, at least one species of toad, and can also be produced synthetically. It produces hallucinogenic experiences between 7 and 90 minutes and has been used by indigenous communities for medicinal and spiritual purposes for centuries. Today, 5-MeO-DMT and other psychedelic compounds, including psilocybin and ketamine, are growing in popularity as clinical trials and formal research demonstrate its effectiveness as an alternative mental health tool.
Silo Wellness and Kaivalya Kollectiv will integrate the 5-MeO-DMT experience into two new Jamaican retreats that offer yoga, meditation, breath work and spiritual coaching as well as unique culinary and cultural experiences. The partnership marks the first time a public company has offered a 5-MeO-DMT wellness retreat and the first experience of its kind in Jamaica.

Jamaican Psychedelic Retreat Series through Silo Wellness begins
Silo Wellness announced in April that it would host a series of psilocybin-assisted wellness retreats in Montego Bay, Jamaica. The retreats are part of Silo Wellness’s existing psilocybin activities in the Caribbean, where the company is currently growing mushrooms and truffles and testing its patent-pending nasal spray.
The series of events includes retreats for consumers with different interests and backgrounds. Psychedelic-assisted retreats, specially designed for women, fitness enthusiasts, couples, members of the LGBTQ + community, and those interested in growing their own mushrooms, are scheduled through July.
“We are prioritizing expanding our wellness retreat offerings to meet growing consumer demand for these transformative psychedelic experiences,” Gordon said in a statement last month. “Attitude and mindset have a profound effect on an individual’s experience. Our Jamaican retreats provide idyllic, natural backdrops for psilocybin exploration, introspection, and self-actualization.”
