BUILDING THE FUTURE OF FUNGI MEDICINE, TOGETHER

WHO
IS WAKE?

Wake is a team of humans committed to making empowered, preventative, holistic wellness a mainstream reality.

Through our clinical research, we bring the wisdom of ancient healing traditions into a modern, measurable, replicable landscape. Like the mycelium of the mushrooms we cultivate, Wake is a network where the internal values we hold extend into all we do—from research, to product development, to customer education.

Our Values

Clinical Credibility

It’s not enough to sell mushrooms: in order to normalize fungi medicine, there must be clear data supporting the benefits to the body and psyche. Wake has developed a regenerative feedback loop that allows us to research, monitor and incorporate results from clinical studies on a one-to-one basis.

Humanity

When it comes to holistic health, everyone’s journey and destination is unique. We don’t exist to gatekeep or dictate health; we exist to provide medicine, science, education and wellness professionals for our community. We employ the experience and perspectives of diverse, qualified practitioners to assist us in reaching as many people as possible.

Quality

As industry leaders, we go above and beyond the standards for quality, resulting in a pure, reliable product. Our mushroom formulas are created with GMP-certified organic fungi, and cultivated by specialized professionals. Our dosing recommendations are informed by best in class research which we continue to look to augment with ongoing clinical research.
