Psychedelic Sector Insights

The definitive resource for analysis of the emergent psychedelic medicine sector. Cut through the noise with exclusive news, interviews, data and opportunities to invest in psychedelics.

40% of American adults report struggling with mental health or substance abuse disorders. Psychedelics may provide solutions to the global mental health crisis.

After decades of repression, psychedelic research is thriving.

Promising research has already resulted in FDA Breakthrough Therapy designations for psilocybin-assisted therapies aimed at treating depression, and MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD. Research on other psychedelics, including MDMA and LSD, is picking up pace with research centres at prestigious institutions—including Johns Hopkins and Imperial College London—driving a new wave of psychedelic research.

Decriminalisation and legalisation campaigns are succeeding.

Last year the U.S. state of Oregon voted to decriminalise psychedelics and legalise Psilocybin Therapy. Washington, D.C., home of the White House, also decriminalised psychedelics, with California and New Jersey poised to follow suit. Canada’s Health Minister has granted exemptions to allow access to psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy, setting precedent for future efforts to expand access.

Significant clinical trial milestones on the horizon.

An MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD trial is set to complete this year. The trial’s sponsor, MAPS, has raised $30 million to seek FDA approval for the treatment upon completion of the groundbreaking study. Two trials of psilocybin for depression are in Phase 2, having demonstrated safety in earlier stages.
