Ceruvia Lifesciences

Ceruvia Lifesciences are researching, developing and manufacturing novel psychedelic compounds for the treatment of hard-to-treat disorders including headache disorders and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).


Ceruvia Lifesciences was founded by Carey Turnbull who has contributed more than $30 million to psychedelic research, is a board member at the Usona Institute and President of the Heffter Research Institute. Since 2015, Ceruvia has been conducting their research into using psychedelics to treat cluster headaches, migraines and OCD from Yale School of Medicine.

Ceruvia has developed two novel psychedelic compounds: SYNP-101 (synthetic psilocybin) and BOL-148 ( a non-psychedelic LSD derivative).
