Psygen is a manufacturer of pharmaceutical-grade psychedelic drug products for clinical research and therapeutic applications. Danny Motyka has long been a proponent of psychedelic medicine.

After graduating from the University of Victoria with an honours degree in chemistry, he began his rise through management at Aurora Cannabis. His career with Aurora included multiple years as General Manager of a cannabis cultivation and processing facility, providing foundational experience with the intricacies of good manufacturing practices, and a strong knowledge of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and the associated regulations.
