Psychedelic therapy just got A LOT more accessible for Canadians

BREAKING: Canada Opens New Legal Pathways For Access To Psychedelics Treatment With Psilocybin And MDMA

Until now, the only way for patients to access psychedelic therapy outside a clinical trial was to apply for a Section 56 exemption and wait months on end to (possibly) receive approval from Health Canada.

Despite six more patients receiving the exemption over the holidays, the system remains flawed.

Thankfully, this Wednesday, Health Canada made an amendment to this thing called the Special Access Program (SAP), which enables healthcare practitioners to request access to drugs that are not yet approved, but have shown promise in clinical trials.

The amendment allows practitioners to request access to psilocybin and MDMA for their patients with serious, life-threatening, or treatment-adverse conditions. And the best part: requests are typically processed in just 1 day! 🎉

While this does not guarantee access for patients, it certainly feels like a big step in the right direction.
