Back in 2014 when investors started trading marijuana stocks Wall Street dubbed it as just the flavour of the year. But since then, psychedelic stocks have seen billions of dollars be invested in them and hundreds of companies revolving them have launched themselves. This is also due to the scientific research which now supports the use of psychedelics as a medical treatment which helps normalize their consumption. The Centre for Psychedelic and Consciousness Research at John Hopkins has announced its commitment of $17 million for proper study and research which help normalize psychedelics.
Although it is vital that government support the growing psychedelic industry and allow it to be legalized globally for its advancement, it is already a growing industry with endorsements from celebrities and certain medical institutions. It is predicted that the psychedelic sector can rake in over $6.85 billion by the year 2027. Below are some of the stocks worth having a look at if you are thinking about investing in psychedelic stocks in 2021.
MindMed Inc., is a leading psychedelic medicine biotech company which works in developing psychedelic inspired medicines for the treatment of mental illnesses. It aims to develop a channel of innovative treatments with the use of psychedelic substances with the use of its own biopharmaceutical experience and approach to develop new psychedelic inspired medicines.
With the legalization of psychedelics for medical consumption, MindMed’s stocks have also seen a rise. When Oregon became the first state in the United States to legalise the medical usage of psilocybin, psychedelic stocks also rose. MMED also recently had a prosperous meeting with the US Food and Drug Administration about use of LSD as an assisted treatment for anxiety disorder.
MMED announced the closing of a financing for gross proceeds of $21.6 million at the end of October 2020. Its total assets as of September 30, 2002 were $23.7 million.
