Peter Reitano is an award-winning entrepreneur and CEO of Gwella, a brand house and life sciences company on a mission to make psychedelics more accessible and help people use them safely and effectively. He's an active participant and early mover in emerging and highly regulated industries, including both cannabis and psychedelics. Stemming from his early personal experiences with entheogens, he's become a passionate advocate for cognitive liberty and the right of every human to experiment with their own consciousness. They recently launched Mojo in the USA; an innovative patent-pending product that mimics the benefits of microdosing, in a completely legal platform. Peter is also a regular speaker at conferences and industry panels around the world. He has been invited to speak at Google, Facebook, DX3, Porsche, Rogers, University of Toronto, Johnson and Johnson, Haste and Hustle, General Assembly, and InfluenceThis, just to name a few.
We had the pleasure of chatting with Peter about the rapidly-growing trend towards using functional mushrooms and medicinal mushrooms to not only support chronic health conditions, but to simply make us better humans that can thrive in today's world. He is a true biohacker with years of experimenting with different plant medicines and has learned incredible lessons that he is passing on to our audience in this episode.
