With a good deal of support from the US FDA, clinical studies, U.S. cities and states, psilocybin could be on the same path taken by cannabis. While psychedelics are still illegal in most states and under federal law, Oregon just became the first state to decriminalize it. Now there’s reportedly a push in California to do the same. In fact, according to Daily Democrat, “Both a revived ballot measure and promised legislation from State Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, could open access to hallucinogenic mushrooms and perhaps other psychedelics in the Golden State within the next two years.” If that’s the case, psilocybin companies could see big interest, especially on news psilocybin “elevates levels of serotonin, a chemical messenger that regulates mood, sleep, appetite, sex drive and more. But psilocybin also strengthens and makes new connections between different parts of the brain.” With the story gaining big momentum, some of the top companies to keep an eye on include NeonMind Biosciences Inc. (CSE: NEON), Numinus Wellness Inc. (TSXV:NUMI)(OTC:LKYSF), Cybin Inc. (NEO:CYBN) (OTC:CLXPF), Compass Pathways (NASDAQ:CMPS), and Mind Medicine Inc. (OTC:MMEDF).
