Painting in the psychedelics field

Mapping, understanding, connecting

“Roads?! Where we’re going, we don’t need roads!!!”

Roadmap

Blossom was founded to speed up the implementation of psychedelics as medicine. For this purpose, this website and our other projects aim to spread knowledge about psychedelics far and wide.

The ultimate goal is to see psychedelics being widely available for treating mental health disorders and assisting with self-development. We understand that this field will revolutionize how we both help people and expand our knowledge of the world.

We aren’t there yet. When Van Gogh was painting the Almond Blossom, he had to start at the tree trunk. From there, he could work his way up the branches, ending at the blossoming flowers. Blossom also has to start at the trunk, working our way up to fill in the beautiful details as we progress.

Please use this page to look at our draft book, sketches of future branches and eager possibilities. The branches are not set in stone. So do send us an email to shine your light on future developments.

Now, onto the sketching pad.

Q4 2022 – October, November, December

The database (individual data points) is starting to be ‘complete’. We are now looking into getting the data in more overview pages.

For example, we are building an overview of all the ‘original’ studies, showing how many people have gone through the trials. Another project we’re working on is showcasing how many studies have been done for specific topics (e.g. depression) and writing a longer explainer on this topic.

Over the last few months, we’ve been highlighting more and more what companies are doing in the psychedelic space. Now we also want to expand the information collected in our database.

Just as we’ve done for papers & trials, we will provide more information on the companies working on psychedelics.

Next to the individual data points, we will also expand to cover more company data in overview pages.

Q3 2022 – July, August, September

Co-organise ICPR Psychedelic, Science, Ethics & Business (PSEB)

Put together a fantastic event on the 21st of September that will bring together thought-leaders and influential entrepreneurs bringing psychedelics out of the lab and into the real world. Update: The event successfully sold the room out (240 people) and provided an excellent start for ICPR. Next to the business day, we helped ICPR in a voluntary role with 1001 tasks.

Q2 2022 – April, May, June

Now that we have a basic version of nearly all topics covered by psychedelics, we want to dive deeper in partnership with some of the best psychedelic companies.

We have now (mid-May 2022) finished one paid report (to be published after review) and have a much more extensive report in the works together with a partner.

Next to that partnership, we remain open to partnering on other reports or paid engagements.

Co-organise ICPR Psychedelic, Science, Ethics & Business (PSEB)

Put together a fantastic event on the 21st of September that will bring together thought-leaders and effective entrepreneurs bringing psychedelics out of the lab and into the real world.

Q1 2022 – January, February, March

The reports bring to life the information from the databases, they are each an introduction to a specific topic (e.g. depression), compound (e.g. MDMA), or country (e.g. Switzerland).

Next to finishing our first versions of the reports, we are actively looking for collaborators to help make more detailed versions of the reports.

Since Q3 2021 we’ve been working on redesigning Blossom. This includes the new logo and styling, but also a new way of displaying the databases and individual pages (e.g. of a single paper).

The biggest changes here will be the search and individual pages for papers and companies that we’re working on behind the scenes.

Running since 2019, Blossom has been funded primarily by the personal funds of our founder. We are now actively working on recruiting partners to work with as well as emploring individual users of the database to chip in if the information we provide is valuable to them.

Contact us if you’re interested in cooperating.
