30% less opioid use

Associations between classic psychedelics and opioid use disorder in a nationally-representative U.S. adult sample

A recent survey of 200,000+ people found that those who have used psilocybin at least once are 30% less likely to have opioid use disorder. However, LSD, mescaline, and peyote use did not seem to have an impact on opioid use. Addiction is linked with abnormal serotonin neurotransmission. Since psilocybin targets the serotonin system, it may help protect against opioid addiction.

Psychedelic blocks the rewarding effects of alcohol 🍾

Ibogaine blocks some of the rewarding effects of alcohol in rodent model of addictive behavior

A common model of addiction involves conditioning rats to associate a drug with a certain area. The amount of time the rat spends in that area indicates how addictive the stimuli is.

In a recent study, rats showed a preference to the area associated with ethanol (alcohol) over the placebo area, which was expected since alcohol is addictive. 

After a dose of ibogaine (a psychedelic compound found in the African iboga shrub), they no longer expressed a preference for alcohol.

Additionally, rats showed no preference between an area associated with ibogaine and the placebo area, suggesting that ibogaine is non-addictive.

“We found that ibogaine did not have rewarding effects itself, but it did block the expression of ethanol reward in a model that can commonly be referred to as a pre-clinical model of relapse,” explains the study author, Lais F. Berro.

Mydecine Receives Conditional IRB Approval for Phase 2b Smoking Cessation Study

Mydecine Receives Conditional IRB Approval for Phase 2b Smoking Cessation Study

Clinical trial programs advance to further assess psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy utilizing lead drug candidate MYCO-001

DENVER, March 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mydecine Innovations Group Inc. (NEO: MYCO) (OTC: MYCOF) (FSE: 0NFA) (“Mydecine” or the “Company’), a biotechnology company aiming to transform the treatment of mental health and addiction disorders, today announced it has received conditional approval from the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for its multi-site Phase 2b smoking cessation trial. Johns Hopkins University will serve as the lead investigational site.

The Company reported the IRB has approved its Phase 2b smoking cessation study pending FDA approval of its Investigational New Drug (IND) application. Mydecine plans to submit the IND application in Q2 2022 and is hopeful it will go into effect 30 days after submission.

“We are beyond excited to share the news of our conditional IRB approval for our Phase 2b clinical trial. Upon the near-term clearance of our IND application, which is wholly owned by Mydecine, we will be the first commercial IND approved utilizing psilocybin for the indication of smoking cessation, and one of a small number of organizations with a commercial FDA IND approval, alongside COMPASS Pathways, MindMed, and Usona, for a Phase 2 or later stage study assessing a psychedelic compound for any indication. We have a strong patent and regulatory strategy to support this initiative as well as further subsequent approvals,” said CEO Josh Bartch.

“This conditional approval marks a significant milestone not only for Mydecine but for people around the globe. The total economic cost of smoking has been estimated to be more than $300 billion per year in the United States alone. Our mission is to bring safer, more effective solutions to address nicotine dependence and other harmful addictions. This conditional approval brings us one step closer to potentially having a positive effect on millions of lives utilizing this innovative treatment program,” said Mydecine’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Rakesh Jetly.

“Today’s accomplishment speaks to the perseverance and dedication of our team as we continue to build on our clinical and commercial potential,” added Mydecine’s Senior Director of Clinical and Regulatory Affairs Jessica Riggleman. “Our success is built upon a strategic collaboration between our contract research organization, manufacturer, investigators, advisors and regulatory consultants. We are diligently working together to submit our Investigational New Drug Application to the FDA for our multi-regional Phase 2b clinical trial.”

The Company will move rapidly into the patient recruitment phase upon FDA clearance. Mydecine’s Phase 2b study is investigating a primary endpoint of six months, indicating it could publish data as early as Q4 2023.

Peyote, but ✨sustainable✨

Wellbeing Digital Sciences’ Subsidiary KGK Science Engaged by Lophos Pharmaceuticals for Novel Peyote Study

Peyote has the longest documented use of any psychedelic, yet we don’t see many companies researching its properties.

That’s because the psychedelic cactus is endangered – the 13-year growth cycle can’t keep up with the rate of harvesting.

Lophos Pharmaceuticals is developing a sustainable cultivation technique that could reduce the long growth cycle to just 3 years, preserving the species and accelerating research.

The CEO of Lophos says that peyote could help treat obesity, addiction, anxiety, and depression, with a strong potential for microdosing.

Clearmind Medicine Announces Positive Results on CMND-100 trials

Clearmind Medicine Announces Positive Results on CMND-100 trials

wo pre-clinical trials based on MEAI exhibited a significant suppressive effect on alcohol consumption in mice

TORONTO, March 17, 2022(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —  Clearmind Medicine Inc. (CSE: CMND, OTC Pink: CMNDF,FSE: CWY0) (“Clearmind” or the “Company”) today announced promising results from two pre-clinical trials which tested suppression of alcohol consumption in mice using its novel psychedelic-based therapeutic CMND-100, whose active pharmaceutical ingredient is MEAI.

The first trial examined the effect of CMND-100 in several doses as a monotherapy. The second, done in collaboration with SciSparc Ltd. (NASDAQ: SPRC), examined the synergetic effect of combining lower concentrations of CMND-100 with SciSparc’s CannAmide™(proprietary formulation of Palmitoylethanolamide or PEA) .

“We are excited to reveal that our proprietary CMND-100 showed very positive results that suggest strong potential for treating alcohol use disorder,” said Dr. Adi Zuloff-Shani, PhD, the CEO of Clearmind, which focuses on discovery and development of novel psychedelic-derived therapeutics to solve major undertreated health problems.

As part of the trials, the mice were provided with a 20% alcohol solution for 24 hours, three times a week for 7 weeks – and treated with MEAI daily during the last two weeks. The mice had free access to water to test their alcohol preference over water.Alcohol consumption was measured by weighing the alcohol bottles before and after. CMND-100 at doses of 40 mg/kg and higher demonstrated significant suppressive effect on alcohol consumption, reducing the alcohol consumed significantly lower than untreated controls (p<0.01).

The second trial aimed to test the hypothesis that sub-effective doses of CMND-100 in combination with CannAmide will further attenuate alcohol consumption (PEA is known as a safeneuro-potentiator). Results showed a significant reduction in alcohol consumption at the lower sub-effective MEAI dose when combined with CannAmide.

“CMND-100 showed very positive results both in our own target dose and in lower doses combined with SciSparc’s CannAmide™,” Zuloff-Shani said. “These results are a proof of concept for our goal of developing innovative, effective, and safe psychedelic treatments that could revolutionize the mental health market

  • The World Health Organization notes that Cannabis is the “most commonly used psychoactive substance under international control, and that there is increasing demand of treatment for cannabis use disorders”1

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA (March 3, 2022) – LOVE Pharma Co. (“LOVE” and or The Company”)(CSE: LUV) (FSE: G1Q0), the Company is pleased to announce updated details on the proposed Microdoz Therapy acquisition (originally announced in a press release on November 23, 2021), whereby Microdoz has engaged exclusively with researchers at Johns Hopkins University, the top psychedelic center in the World, located in the eastern United States, to conduct a landmark study into the potential of psilocybin assisted treatment of cannabis use disorder. The company looks forward to working with the university and research experts on the study and, ultimately, licensing and commercializing the intellectual property developed by the landmark study.

“This is a significant opportunity to develop treatments with efficacy for people who are today subject to Cannabis Use Disorder and those who will become subject to it in the future,” said Mr. Zach Stadnyk, Love Pharma CEO. “The U.S. cannabis industry is forecast to surpass $41 billion by 20252, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse has released research suggesting 9% – 30% of people using cannabis may develop cannabis use disorder3, so we see an opportunity where Love can help people facing this disorder along with our research partners, while at the same time developing a lucrative market for treatment that will benefit our shareholders.”

Lucas Corrubia, Co-founder of Microdoz and PhD Candidate, stated: “the Hopkins team has paved the way for clinical psychedelic therapy research, and we are optimistic in working with their successful research team to develop a new therapy for cannabis abuse, and develop a long-lasting relationship with the global leader in medical research sciences”.

Through the planned acquisition of Microdoz, partnering with the university to conduct this comprehensive study relating to the potential of psilocybin assisted treatment for cannabis use disorder will help to establish consumer confidence and guide the development and use of psilocybin product development and application.  As a result, LOVE will continue to develop innovative products that establish new consumer applications. Science and efficacy are paramount to the LOVE Pharma strategy, as indicated by the Company’s research initiative to take place at Johns Hopkins. We look forward to completing this clinical study and licensing the intellectual property produced from it and, eventually, commercializing the prospective findings furthering our footprint in the bourgeoning psychedelics for therapeutic use space going forward and delivering value for our shareholders.

Terms of the Deal:

  • $1,000,000 CAD payable in common shares of the company subject to certain escrow provisions pegged to milestone achievements at a deemed price of $0.05 per share
  • 50% payable at closing of the definitive agreement which is anticipated to close in 14 days, subject to final due diligence
  • Remaining 50% will be paid in four equal tranches over a 2-year period subject to the successful completion of certain millstones

  • Addiction
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Chronic pain such as migraines and cluster headaches

The company aims to be a global supplier of synthetic ibogaine for research purposes and expects to have supply available by the end of Q2 this year.
