Famed investor Kevin O’Leary made a bold prediction last Tuesday, saying that psychedelic companies MindMed, atai Life Sciences and Compass Pathways will merge. For psychedelic stock investors, this would be a tsunami-sized event that would have ripple effects throughout the industry.
MindMed is one of the largest companies in the psychedelics space and is developing various psychedelics for mental health disorders.
atai Life Sciences
atai Life Sciences is one of the biggest companies in the psychedelics field. The company aims to be a platform and has nine subsidiary companies working on everything from psilocybin for depression to DMT administration.
COMPASS Pathways is a publicly listed company (NASDAQ) that aims to develop psilocybin for treatment-resistant depression (TRD) for which it has completed a successful Phase IIb trial. It has gone public and has received substantial investment from atai.
