Innovators Identify Crucial Advancements to Uncover Medical Breakthroughs From Psychedelics

Investor interest in the potential of medicinal psychedelics continues to rise. 

Psychedelic therapies have great potential to treat many costly and destructive mental health conditions and gain broad acceptance as a viable treatment, but that potential will only be realized from research, development, and the completion of clinical research trials. 

That’s why the expansion of clinical research programs focused on psychedelics is crucial to realize the medicinal and investment potential of medicinal psychedelics. 

The last few days have seen significant announcements about clinical trials which incorporate medicinal psychedelics. 

NYU Langone Health Newshub recently stated, “Philanthropic support of more than $10 million is helping NYU Langone Health advance its already world-renowned reputation in the study of psychedelic medicine. This is being achieved through the establishment of a one-of-a-kind center that will expand research and physician training in this exciting and resurging field.”

The past and current clinical research at the NYU Langone Health facility included treatment of cancer-related psychiatric distress, depression, substance addiction and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

The private sector is also advancing clinical research programs into medicinal psychedelics.

For example, Mind Medicine (NEO:MMED)(OTC:MMEDF), Numinus Wellness (TSXV:NUMI) (OTC:LKYSF), Field Trip Health (CSE:FTRP) (OTC:FTRPF), and Cybin Inc. (NEO:CYBN) (OTC:CLXPF) have all announced clinical research trials are either planned or are already underway for medicinal psychedelics.

Recently, MINDCURE (CSE:MCUR) (OTC:MCURF), took a major step towards joining the largest medicinal psychedelics companies by getting involved in clinical research. 

MINDCURE announced it has completed the initial strategic investment into ATMA Journey Centers Inc.

ATMA was the first private sector service provider in Canada to announce conducting legal psychedelic-assisted therapy for a palliative care patient under the approval of Health Canada’s section 56(1) exemption.

This facility is where ATMA provides individual and group therapy to patients and serves as its National Psychedelic Training Center for mental health care professionals.

As part of the deal between ATMA and MINDCURE, ATMA will receive the direct investment to expand its clinic network and access to MINDCURE ‘s iSTRYM technology platform.

MINDCURE will get access to patient data which it will use to accelerate the growth of iSTRYM’s database for use in future diagnoses, treatments, and personalized care.

MINDCURE is in a unique situation among psychedelic companies. The deployment of its proprietary iSTRYM technology platform puts it in position to be one of the first medicinal psychedelic companies to build a near-term revenue stream, while still actively developing psychedelic-based therapeutics that could be valuable in the long-term.

Kelsey Ramsden, President & CEO, Mind Cure, said, “Our partnership with ATMA represents a huge step forward for healing today in Canada and around the world. By accelerating the development of our research and technology platform, iSTRYM, we’re closer to minimizing the gaps that exist in health care, all the way from research to the deployment of care. It’s an amazing opportunity to innovate with pioneers of the psychedelic therapy industry by creating proprietary research, identifying commonalities, and driving real transformative results for individuals using psychedelic medicines.”

Other developments for the leading companies playing a role in the growth, acceptance, and development of the rapidly rising psychedelics sector:

The company announced in January it had signed a lab services agreement with Optimi Health Corp., developer of a vertically integrated functional mushroom brand focused on the health and wellness sector, to further the research and development of Canadian-grown psilocybin-producing mushrooms.

In February of 2021 Numinus announced it will be acquiring Mindspace Wellbeing. Numinus described Mindspace Wellbeing as a Montreal-based well-being organization which grew from a state-of-the-art psychology clinic with a focus on evidence-based approaches to mental health.
