In this episode, James, The Psychedelic Investor, sits down with Doug Drysdale, CEO of Cybin (NYSE: CYBN) for the Psychedelic Spotlight podcast.
In the interview, the two discuss Cybin’s psychedelic medicines portfolio, and where the psychedelic industry is going in the next few years. Can psychedelics heal mental health?
The main topic was attempting to answer the question: can psilocybin heal mental health conditions like depression?
Doug Drysdale spoke on the positive results we have seen in psilocybin for depression clinical trials, such as the Compass Pathways’ psilocybin (comp 360) for treatment-resistant depression phase 2b trial. Despite the apparent benefits of psilocybin, though, Doug Drysdale and Cybin argued that there were 3 core problems with using psilocybin in a therapy setting: the long duration of effect; the onset action period; and the variability of effect.
Cybin has developed a new version of psilocybin, called CYB-003. CYB-003 has a shorter duration, reaches peak effect quicker, and has less variability in effect between individuals. Plus, it keeps all of the therapeutic benefits of psilocybin and its subjective effects.
It is important to note that Cybin’s Cyb-003, their next-generation psilocybin, has only been tested in animals up until this point. They intend to start human clinical trials next year.
James and Doug of Cybin also discussed the other Cybin projects, such as CYB-004, and their development strategy. They also discussed government policy, and whether the psychedelics sector has reaches escape velocity.
In all, this psychedelic medicines conversation was fascinating and showed Cybin’s dedication towards improving mental health conditions, which are abysmal in the United States right now.
