Mounting evidence of safety and efficacy is improving the social perception of psychedelics, helping us drop and walk away from social baggage. The potential health benefits of psychedelics present significant business opportunities within the mental health sector, which is attracting a growing number of entrepreneurs, investors and operators.
LSD, psilocybin, MDMA, mescaline, DMT and many other psychedelics are listed in the 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances and as a result are scheduled as controlled substances in most jurisdictions. Although this legal classification creates specific barriers to entry, operators with the right skillsets see significant business opportunities within this space. If you have an interest in this market, you won't want to miss the opportunity to join the Canadian Securities Exchange (the CSE), MNP LLP and Borden Ladner Gervais LLP (BLG), featuring Zuber Lawler and Del Duca, Stifel Financial Corporation, Red Light Holland and Sansero Life Sciences Inc. for a webinar series that will address the business opportunities and risks associated with this sector.
