Before 1970, promising research was being conducted on the potential therapeutic effects of a broad category of psychedelic drug compounds, including substances such as psilocybin, DMT (dimethyltryptamine), LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) and MDMA (methylenedioxymethamphetamine) — and then the Controlled Substance Act was signed into law, which labeled those substances as drugs of abuse with no medical value. The severely limited research conducted thereafter continued to demonstrate the potential of these compounds to provide therapeutic value, particularly for notoriously difficult diseases such as depression, addiction, PTSD and others. In the past few years, the relatively unattended field of psychedelic therapeutics is seeing a revival of activity and excitement, spawning innovative approaches and creating valuable companies in the process. Tryp Therapeutics Inc. (CSE: TRYP) (OTCQB: TRYPF) (Profile) is one of the exciting new companies to enter the public domain, bringing a diversified pipeline and de-risked strategy that should usher the company right into phase 2 clinical trials. A public company since its IPO in December of 2020, Tryp aims to become a leader in the healthcare and drug development industries alongside others, including COMPASS Pathways Plc (NASDAQ: CMPS)Field Trip Health Ltd. (OTCQX: FTRPF) (CSE: FTRP)Cybin Inc. (NEO: CYBN) (OTCQB: CLXPF)Mind Medicine (MindMed) Inc. (NASDAQ: MNMD) (NEO: MMED).
