Oregon became the first state in the nation to legalize the adult use of psilocybin on Jan. 1st.

The manufacturer license was issued to Satori Farms PDX LLC, which is owned by Tori Armbrust. As the nation celebrates Women’s History Month, this woman-owned business will bring communities one step closer to accessing psilocybin services in Oregon.

“We congratulate Tori Armbrust for being issued the first psilocybin license in Oregon’s history, and for representing women leading the way for the emerging psilocybin ecosystem,” OHA’s Oregon Psilocybin Services (OPS) Section Manager Angie Allbee said. “We are committed to fostering an inclusive partnership with our regulated community to ensure safe, effective, and equitable psilocybin services throughout the state.”

OPS is responsible for licensing psilocybin facilitators, manufacturers, service centers, and laboratories, while ensuring that licensees and their workers comply with state law. OPS began accepting applications for the four license types on Jan. 2nd. OPS expects to issue additional licenses to laboratories, service centers, and facilitators in the coming months.

Anyone interested in accessing psilocybin services can find service centers and facilitators once they are licensed on the OPS licensee directory website. The directory contains licensee names and contact details for all licensees that have requested to have their information published. This may also provide opportunities for licensed psilocybin businesses to connect.

OPS has also begun publishing a weekly report on applications for licenses and worker permits. The new report includes information about the total number of applications received by type and status. OPS will update the report on a weekly basis.
