Psychedelics in the news

Psychedelics will create new modalities in medicine, society and public markets

FDA approved studies are yielding transformative results for psychedelics as medicine to treat a wide range of mental and physical health conditions. Within the last couple of years, the prospect of cures for treatment-resistant diseases, such as major depression, PTSD, and addiction, is racing toward reality with a handful of pioneering companies and world class universities leading the charge.

The movement is creating tremendous promise for people suffering with these debilitating diseases and a deep sense of accomplishment for those who have long sought to include psychedelics in scientific consideration as a viable treatment modality.

While psychedelics are expected to heal tens of millions globally and transcend the way we think about the mind and human consciousness, it is also creating unprecedented investment opportunities with the first IPOs happening earlier this year, and jurisdictions around the country are moving to decriminalize use and possession.

Our News section will keep readers informed with all of the latest industry updates with regard to research progress, investor news and cultural reform.
