The Future of Psychedelic Medicine Will Be Drugs You’ve Never Heard Of

While classic psychedelics work towards FDA approval, global drug developers are moving beyond traditional plant medicines to focus their attention on the creation of novel “precision psychedelics”, compounds with shorter trips, less side effects, and, in some cases, no hallucinogenic component. Researchers are hopeful their efforts will increase access and scalability of psychedelic treatment. “I try to think of my mom,” one COMPASS chemist explains. “If she had to have this medication, what would I want for her as an ideal compound and ideal experience?” 

Overdose Deaths Hit a Historic High in 2020. Frustrated Experts Say These Strategies Could Save Lives

100,000 overdose deaths occurred in the U.S. between April 2020 and April 2021. Despite the steady rise of overdose deaths in the U.S. over the last two decades, the latest data raises an alarm about the increased need for substance use disorder prevention and treatment. Novamind recently announced plans to develop an innovative substance use disorder program. We’re also hosting a clinical trial for ketamine-assisted psychotherapy + mindfulness for opioid use disorder. Read about it here.

Psychedelic Therapies Continue to Be Seen as Big Trend in Mental Health Treatment

In the latest issue of Mental Health Weekly, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Reid Robison discusses the benefits and barriers of psychedelic treatment and weighs in on the progress of MDMA & psilocybin research and legislative activities in the US.

Two Thirds of Physicians Surveyed Believe Psilocybin Therapy Has Potential Benefit for Patients With Treatment-Resistant Depression

Perceptions on the potential of psilocybin therapy are shifting in the medical community, according to a recent COMPASS Pathways-sponsored survey. “Severe mental illnesses, such as treatment-resistant depression, have affected too many people in society for too long. Physicians are looking for new approaches to accelerate the healing process, particularly for patients for whom current therapies have failed.” 

MAPS Publishes Open Science Approach to Synthesizing MDMA

A new study by Jay Nair and colleagues from MAPS PBC tries to answer the question of how psychedelic substances will be produced. This is an important step and still, “Many open questions remain about the legal framework that needs to materialize, who will distribute the medicines, and who will be qualified to provide the treatment.” Dr. Robison sat down with Mental Health Weekly for similar conversation.

How Western Medicine Can Adapt to Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy

Lucid News’ Itzhak Beery explores the role of shamanism in Western medicine. “Some psychotherapists feel pressured to offer this type of healing to their clients, who have heard about these magical treatments and hope for a short cut to relief. Most facilitators do not acknowledge the element of spirit or the unseen world.” We’ve also explored this question (and more) in a previous episode of the Psychedelic Frontiers Podcast.

Novamind Unveils New Design Concept for Clinics

We are pleased to unveil our clinic design concept to accommodate the unique requirements of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy. The design concept will launch first in Novamind’s Park City, Utah location, and later across Novamind’s de novo clinics. Select design elements and principles will be integrated within existing clinic locations.

Inclusive and welcoming, the design concept enhances the patient experience at Novamind clinics, prioritizing patient safety and privacy, and utilizing evidence-based therapeutic elements to optimize patient care, including:

  • Biophilic designs that mimic nature and emphasize light interplay and neutral colour theory
  • Walking paths designed to minimize disruption and traffic across the clinic, creating a sense of privacy and tranquility
  • Curved treatment spaces, representing the protective space of cocoons, to facilitate the more sedentary experience of ketamine treatment
  • Larger treatment rooms to accommodate group therapy programs and support movement and more active patient behaviours associated with MDMA, psilocybin and other psychedelic medicines when approved by the FDA
  • To create the Design Concept, Novamind contracted DesignAgency, an internationally recognized interior design firm with clients that include the Four Seasons Hotels, MGM Resorts, Momofuku restaurants, Soho House and others. DesignAgency worked closely with Novamind’s clinical team to incorporate a host of therapeutic considerations into the design blueprint to achieve optimal patient experiences.

“We collaborated with Novamind’s clinical team and understood the importance of ‘set and setting’ in psychedelic medicine,” said Matt Davis, Co-Founder and Principal at DesignAgency. “The goal was to create spaces that allow patients to have a holistic experience and signal hope and healing well before they walk through the door.”

Dr. Reid Robison, Chief Medical Officer at Novamind, commented: “This new concept, combined with Novamind’s standard operating procedures, creates the most welcoming and effective healing environment possible. We wanted our clinics to be comforting, inviting and calming. With guidance from the DesignAgency team, we now have the blueprint to create spaces that elevate our patients’ healing experience.”

Health Canada’s Special Access Program Will Now Allow Doctors To Request Patient Access To Psychedelics

This is big news for Canada overall. “Long-awaited amendments to Health Canada’s Special Access Program have finally been made, potentially opening the door to less onerous access to the medical access of psychedelics like psilocybin and MDMA for patients in need.” Our mission has always been to increase access to these life-changing therapies and drugs in safe and regulated settings. We celebrate this news and will continue to do our part to bring psychedelic medicine to as many people in need as possible.   

Psychedelic Healthcare in 2021

PSYCH covers the year in psychedelic healthcare. “2021 was a seminal year for psychedelic medicine, with data released from groundbreaking clinical trials harnessing MDMA and psilocybin.” 2021 was special, but we can’t wait to work on making 2022 even more impactful for people around the world.

Ketamine Therapy Swiftly Reduces Depression and Suicidal Thoughts

Dr. Reid Robison and the team at Novamind have spent years providing ketamine-assisted psychotherapy and seeing the positive benefits firsthand. It’s changed the lives of thousands of our patients. We recently published a story about how ketamine helped a mother struggling with severe depression and a struggling marriage. You can read it here. Seeing the results of this systematic review by the University of Exeter is both exciting and validating. “Ketamine therapy has a swift short-term effect on reducing symptoms of depression and suicidal thoughts, according to a review of all the available evidence.”

VIDEO – Valeo Pharma Immune Booster Now Available In ~300 Stores Under Loblaws Banner, Another Step Closer to 2025 Revenue Target of $160M

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 1:40 PM on Thursday, January 6th, 2022
Valeo pharma 300x300

Valeo Pharma is already a successful, revenue-generating, small-cap Canadian pharmaceutical company that acquires the Canadian rights to commercialized drugs in other parts of the world that don’t have Canada on their radar as a target market.    

This “in-license” business model is ingenious because it means ZERO developmental or clinical risk, which is the downfall of most small-cap pharma companies.     

The company released stellar a Q3 with the following highlights:    

  • Record revenues of $5.7 million for Q3 2021, up 280% over Q3 2020 and 114% over prior quarter.
  • Record gross margin of $2.2 million , up 1602% over Q3 2020 and 204% over prior quarter.
  • Record 9 months revenues at $10.2 million , up 94%

But wait, there’s more…

The company announced that Hesperco™ Is Now Available At Loblaws, Hesperidin Covid-19 Clinical Trial Results Submitted For Publication.

  • Approved by Health Canada for immune support, is now available for sale in approximately 300 stores under the Loblaw’s banners including:
    • Loblaws
    • Dominion,
    • Zehrs,
    • Fortinio’s,
    • Your Independent Grocer and Superstore

Steve Saviuk , CEO commented,

We are very pleased to announce that Hesperco is now available in over 300 Loblaw banner stores. The immune support properties of hesperidin, the sole medicinal ingredient contained in Hesperco capsules, has been well documented in numerous scientific publications. We are also encouraged by the results of the Hesperidin Covid-19 clinical trial which has recently been submitted for publication. The study concluded that hesperidin could have beneficial effects and may help reduce certain Covid-19 symptoms. The publication further suggested that earlier treatment of longer duration and/or higher dosage should be studied.”

But wait, there’s more…

The company Closed Previously Announced Upsized $15 Million Bought Deal Private Placement And Concurrent $10 Million Private Placement with Investissement Québec.

VIDEO – Liquid Avatar Metaverse Sales Hit $1,000,000 In Preliminary Gross Revenue – Setting Up Big 2022 and Potential Token Offering

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 6:11 PM on Wednesday, January 5th, 2022
Liquid avatar logo v1 nk

The genesis of Liquid Avatar Technologies is a global blockchain & personal identity solutions company specializing in empowering individuals to manage, control and generate value from their biometrically-verified digital Identity, which also provides businesses and governments the ability to easily integrate digital wallets and digital identity solutions through its Liquid Avatar platform (www.liquidavatar.com

And if the story ended there, that would be more than enough to build a company on.

However, as the digital universe has continued to expand, there is an ever-increasing need to verify online identity as governments and enterprises around the world prepare for the shift.  For example:

  • In early 2021 Google announced a major shift away from precision-targeting of ads based on everything you do on the internet
  • The Ontario Government released its Digital Strategy, with key themes including the launch of Digital ID credentials. 

“Ontario is one of the first jurisdictions in North America to announce that it will issue and enable digital credentials – and it has been a great experience working with the government on this both directly and through our role in membership organizations like the Trust Over IP Foundation,

As a result, the Liquid Avatar Verifiable Credentials Ecosystem (LAVCE) is being built to support all participants in a digital credential ecosystem.  Almost immediately, Liquid Avatar announced a big win here by partnering with the Ontario Convenience Stores Association (OCSA) To Provide Digital Age-Verification Solutions To Over 8,000 Stores.

Again, if the story ended there, Liquid Avatar would have the makings of a potentially massive tech company.

But with the rise of NFTs and the Metaverse, both of which strongly rely on digital identity, the Company continued to expand its core digital identity technology into these areas and registered major successes, including $1,000,000 in Preliminary Gross Revenues for its Aftermath Islands Metaverse.

In the Company’s Q4 Recap and Business Update CEO David Lucatch stated: 

“Our in-market businesses continued to perform above expectations for Q4, and we remain optimistic, while cautious, as these are still early days in the Company’s transformation to an active revenue organization. We have started to witness online acceptance of digital identity programs, which are at the core of all our solutions, and both avatar and metaverse activities are gaining traction, creating opportunities for early revenue there, as the industry embraces the future of Web 3.0. Our goal is to continue to create value for all our stakeholders.”

If you believe in the future of Web3 (blockchain, crypto, tokens, NFTs and the Metaverse) and looking for a small cap company to help you participation in it, then look no further than Liquid Avatar.

With Health Care Workers Hurting, a Doctor Wants to See if a Psychedelic Can Help

NBC News reports on a first-of-its kind clinical trial at the University of Washington School of Medicine to treat 30 medical professionals experiencing depression with a dose of synthetic psilocybin combined with psychotherapy. Some say that even five years ago, this would have been considered taboo. “That medical researchers are turning toward psilocybin to treat colleagues is representative of a growing curiosity and acceptance of the drug among those in the medical establishment.” We’re seeing that openness, too, through our Frontline KAP clinical pilot to help healthcare workers heal.

BEYOND THE DECK – Blockchain Foundry SYSCOIN Market Cap Is $455 MILLION. 24 Hour Trading Volume $13M + … What Does Web 3 Know?

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 5:20 PM on Tuesday, December 21st, 2021
Logo

We all remember the crash of “blockchain” stocks a couple of years back, which was actually a crash of blockchain pretenders who used the term to build stock promotions, as opposed to building actual blockchains.  

Like the dot-com crash of 2000, which bankrupted “dot-com” companies but gave birth to the likes of Google, Amazon, Linkedin because they built actual utility and value, the same could be expected of the blockchain crash and its’ resurgence.  

Blockchain Foundry Is A Smallcap Blockchain 2.0 Company with Real Customers, Products, Revenues and A Web3 Market Cap Of $455,000,000 For It’s Syscoin

But Blockchain Foundry is only just getting started.  The Company is building a WEB3 ecosystem on top of its powerful Sycoin blockchain which is the 2nd most secure blockchain in the world next to Bitcoin.  That isn’t a typo and Web3 coin investors believe it given the fact it has traded over $13,000,000 in volume over the last 24 hours … and close to $25,000,000 in the 24 hours before that!

What do they know that small cap investors don’t know?  What to Web3 investors know that isn’t being reflected in the $BCFN stock price? The short answer is .. A Lot … but luckily we were able to tear away CEO Dan Wasyluk from his coding marathons to explain exactly what we are missing by going through the Company’s power point presentation.

If you’re a small cap investor looking for exposure to the Web3 world of blockchain, coins, tokens, NFTs and more then this $BCFN presentation is a must-watch.

Buckle Up for one hell of a great presentation!

  • Record 9 months revenues at $10.2 million , up 94%

Clearly, Valeo Pharma is firing on all cylinders. This is evident by the company’s recent announcement that they Obtained Public Reimbursement For Enerzair® Breezhaler® And Atectura® Breezhaler® In Quebec And Nova Scotia.

  • Public reimbursement now includes Alberta , Quebec and Nova Scotia , representing approximately 37% of the Canadian population.
  • More than 90% private insurance coverage across Canada

Frederic Fasano, Valeo’s President and Chief Operating Officer commented,

“We are pleased to be reporting today the addition of Quebec and Nova Scotia to join Alberta on the list of provincial public coverage secured for both asthma medications. Public Reimbursement access makes a meaningful impact for asthma patients left with no coverage so far, and also simplify health care providers procedures to provide access of both medications to their patients. Enerzair and Atectura are innovative asthma therapies that are helping make asthma control a more attainable goal for Canadians asthma patients”.
