A randomized, double-blind trial from Johns Hopkins in 2016 found that a single dose of psilocybin substantially improved quality of life and decreased depression and
If Tilray (TLRY.Q) will leave any sort of legacy on the Canadian cannabis landscape, it will be that, for a short time and by virtue of a well-timed and paper-lined public listing, the CEO was the highest paid CEO in North America. For a hot minute, Americans bought in by the truckload and drove the shareprice up like DryShips (DRYS), making the boss a very paper rich man. Everything else the company has managed to achieve has been downhill from there.
There’s a fair amount of excitement bubbling up over the potential for a market in psychedelics. Mostly, we’re hearing about psilocybin and psilocin, the active

Oddball pharmaceutical player Revive Therapeutics (RVV.C) found itself on the back end of a warning by the BCSC this week, that certain German players in the smallcap promotion space had over-hyped the mushroom/cannabis/biotech deal and promised big wins inappropriately for anyone who invested. As a marketing partner of Revive, I got a few panicky texts from certain folks wondering if that meant trouble for us – or them. It’s not a problem for us; our coverage has been appropriately even-handed.

When new sectors emerge, as cannabis did in 2013 and psychedelics are doing right now, microcap companies that have struggled in other sectors will often pivot into new business. Miners become weed companies, then biotech companies, then shroom companies, as boards and management pursue new opportunities that might one day prove better than the last.

Respect where it’s due, I haven’t been to an investor conference in a long time where I came away interested in most of what I saw, let alone *everything* I saw, but this year’s Gravitas Securities Growth Conference lineup absolutely hit it out of the park. The GSGC isn’t the biggest show around, but they know how to turn out the playahs, and the only way you keep big money showing up is to be a little bit picky with what you offer them. Don’t waste anyone’s time and they’ll know it’s cool to return.
