Find Your Inner Healing with Psychedelic Therapy | ATMA CEO Interview

In today’s episode of PSYCBiz, James, the Psychedelic Investor, sits down with David Harder, Co-CEO of ATMA.

ATMA is a company that is primarily focused on training therapists on how to conduct psychedelic therapy.

The company also has plans to launch psilocybin clinical trials, treat depression patients in Canada under the SAP program, and work with Oregon in their legalization of psilocybin therapy.

This interview took place at the Catalyst Summit, a psychedelic conference that David Harder helped organize. This conference saw big names like Paul Stamets attend.

In the conversation, David and James get philosophical and discuss the nature of psychedelics and consciousness. Topics such as the right to try are also discussed.

In today’s episode, we discuss MindMed (Nasdaq: MNMD, NEO:MMED) and its Phase 2 LSD Trial Treating Anxiety Results.

MindMed (Nasdaq: MNMD, NEO:MMED) finally gave the world a glimpse into its LSD-as-medicine project today.

Speaking at the highly anticipated PSYCH Symposium in London, researchers Prof. Matthias Liechti and Dr. Friederike Holze presented topline data of a Phase 2, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, attempting to treat anxiety disorders with LSD in 46 patients. Patients received 200 µg (micrograms) of LSD, which is considered a large dose.

The results were very positive, though perhaps not paradigm shifting — yet.

The primary endpoint of the study was the reduction in anxiety levels 16 weeks after the administration of LSD. They measured this using a questionnaire called the State Trait Anxiety Inventory, better known by its acronym STAI. In short, a person can have a score between 0 and 63, with the higher the score, the worse the anxiety.

The study found that 65% of patients saw their anxiety levels drop by at least 30% from where they were before treatment, 16 weeks after dosing. This compared to only 9% of patients in the placebo arm reaching that 30% level. The average reduction in the STAI was 16.2 points.

Importantly, there was only one serious adverse event in the trial, which consisted of “acute transient anxiety and delusions” during the LSD experience. It does not appear that this patient had any troubles once the effects wore off. In sum, the administration of large doses of LSD appears to be very safe, even if one person did have a particularly bad experience during the dosing.

Furthermore, when looking at secondary variables that measure depression, anxiety and other major psychiatric symptoms (Hamilton Depression Scale, Beck Depression Index, Symptom-Check-List-90-R) the results “showed similarly rapid and sustained responses consistent with a lasting treatment effect.”

In sum, according to MindMed, the topline data demonstrates “the significant, rapid, durable, and beneficial effects of LSD and potential to safely mitigate symptoms of anxiety and depression.”

Wesana Health May Sell Clinics to Focus Solely on Drug Development: An Analysis

Why Field Trip Health Is Dividing in Two — and What This Means for Investors
https://psychedelicspotlight.com/field-trip-health-dividing-two-companies-reunion-neuroscience/

In today’s episode of the Psychedelic Investor, I discuss two major stories. First, is the news that Field Trip Health (Nasdaq: FTRP, TSX: FTRP) will be splitting into two separate companies.
Next, Wesana Health (CSE: WESA, OTCQB: WSNAF) announced that they are considering selling all of their non-drug development assets, including their Psychedelic Therapy clinics.

Wesana Press Release: https://ir.wesanahealth.com/news-events/press-releases/detail/41/wesana-announces-singular-focus-on-drug-development

Field Trip Health:
In a surprise move, Field Trip Health Ltd. announced on Thursday that they will be separating their company into two independent publicly traded entities.
Assuming the ratification of shareholders and regulatory approval, come July 2022, Field Trip Health will be no more. From its ashes will rise Reunion Neuroscience Inc, and Field Trip Health and Wellness Ltd.
Reunion will be the successor to Field Trip’s Discovery division, which was the part of the company which worked on next-generation psychedelics. This includes FT-104, a psilocybin-like compound that is a prodrug to 4-HO-DiPT, and the company’s FT-200 series of psychedelics, which they call third-generation.

Wesana:
On Thursday, Wesana Health made a major announcement. Following a planned strategic review of their assets, Wesana is considering options “including, but not limited to, a sale of all the assets under the care delivery division,” including all of their psychedelic therapy clinics.
The core reasoning, according to the press release, is that Wesana wants to focus its efforts entirely on its drug development division.
Prior to this announcement, Wesana was operating under a philosophy centered on “developing the novel therapies of tomorrow and delivering new care paradigms today.” If this strategic review does result in the sale of their clinics and other today-focused ventures, then Wesana will be decidedly much more focused on tomorrow.

Back to the potential MindMed, Compass Pathways & atai merger that Kevin O
Leary speculates on…

Kevin O’Leary Predicts These 3 Psychedelic Companies Will Merge, But Should They?

The “Shark Tank” star predicts three of the biggest psychedelic companies will merge into a mega-corporation, but our resident Psychedelic Investor wonders: Should they?

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.

The Shark Tank star made the comments at the inaugural Benzinga Psychedelics Capital Conference in Miami, arguing that the companies “each need another $200 million by the time they get this to medicine.” In other words, as I have written before, the psychedelic medicines industry is heavily capital intensive, and getting multiple drugs from pre-clinical trials through Phase 3 trials and approved by the FDA can cost hundreds of millions of dollars.

Even though these companies are three of the best-financed in the industry — atai (Nasdaq: atai) has $362 million, Compass (Nasdaq: CMPS) has $273 million and MindMed (Nasdaq: MNMD, NEO: MMED) has $133 million — the celebrity investor believes that in order to succeed the companies may have to become one.

Back to Numinus

This acquisition will make Numinus the psychedelic medicines company with the highest revenue, though of course there is still a long road to profitability.

Psychedelic stock investors woke up to some major news today: Numinus Wellness (TSX: NUMI) (OTCQX: NUMIF) announced that they are acquiring Novamind Inc. (CSE: NM) (OTCQB: NVMDF).

The acquisition will be done in stock, and shareholders of Novamind will receive 0.84 of a common share of Numinus per Novamind share held, implying an offer price of $0.44 per Novamind share. This means Numinus is offering a premium of 51% to Novamind shareholders, based on the 20-day volume-weighted average price of their stock. When the transaction is completed, Novamind shareholders will own around 18% of Numinus.

If you currently hold Novamind stock, you do not need to do anything. When the transaction is finalized, each Novamind share you own will automatically be transformed into 0.84 of a Numinus share.

By now, most people watching this video are probably aware of the potential for psychedelic medicines, when combined with therapy, such as psilocybin and MDMA to treat a variety of mental health conditions. But receiving this treatment is still difficult.

In Canada, in addition to clinical trials, there are a couple of avenues that a patient can go through to receive psychedelic therapy. The first is called the Section 56 exemption, which has allowed dozens of people suffering from anxiety relating to terminal illnesses to undergo psilocybin therapy.

There is also a new avenue called the Health Canada “Special Access Program”, though relatively few people have gone through that route so far.

In the interview, we also discuss David’s company, ATMA. ATMA is a company that trains therapists to conduct psychedelic therapies. They also conduct therapy themselves.

Lastly, we discuss the upcoming Catalyst Psychedelic conference, happening in Kingston, Ontario between May 20-23rd. I will be there, and I hope to see you also!

A second domino is falling in the world of psychedelic stock investing.

Last week, Psychedelic Spotlight reported that Mind Cure Health (CSE: MCUR) (OTCQX: MCURF) was halting its psychedelic medicines research, following a “strategic review” undertaken by the company.

In short, they ran out of money.

As I have stated repeatedly, running a psychedelic research company is ridiculously expensive, and many smaller companies with low market caps and little money in the bank will find it hard to survive in a market context of low stock prices.

At the time, I speculated that “we shouldn’t be surprised if this is just the first domino,” and unfortunately, it didn’t take much time for the prophecy to be realized.

On March 19th, psychedelics company Core One Labs (CSE: COOL) (OTC: CLABF) announced that they are “working to investigate investment and potential takeover opportunities by strategic psychedelics or pharmaceutical companies.”

Or, in other words, they too have run out of money and are looking for a financial savior.

This wasn’t particularly surprising. Taking a cursory look at their financials, we can see the dire position the company is in. As of the end of September, the company had $587,000 CAD in the bank, and they were spending more than $5 million per quarter. With a market cap of around $32 million, Core One would have to dilute their stock by more than 15% each quarter to keep spending at the same levels. This, obviously, is an unsustainable proposition.

So, with two psychedelic medicine companies essentially announcing that they no longer have the financial wherewithal to continue operations, does it mean that the end of psychedelic stocks is near?

No, it most certainly does not.

To start, we need to understand that the psychedelics companies that are beginning to falter are the ones who were already in bad financial shape. There are many companies that have strong financials, and do not need to worry about refinancing any time soon. A short and non-exhaustive list of these companies include: atai Life Sciences (Nasdaq: ATAI); MindMed (Nasdaq: MNMD) (NEO: MMED); and Small Pharma (TSXV: DMT) (OTCQB: DMTTF). Even if — and I judge this to be likely — more small-cap psychedelics companies follow Mind Cure and Core One Labs’ lead, the more financially stable companies won’t be affected.
