COMPASS announces new psilocybin therapy findings

New studies suggest that COMPASS Pathways’ proprietary psilocybin has promise in treating some of the most challenging mental health conditions: severe treatment-resistant depression and anorexia nervosa.

After a single dose of psilocybin, 58.3% of patients with severe treatment-resistant depression (meaning they’d tried 5+ antidepressant treatments without success) had a reduction in depression scores for 12 weeks.

One quarter of patients no longer qualified for a depression diagnosis.

In the anorexia study, 30% of patients had significant reductions in symptoms at the 1-month follow up, increasing to 40% at the 3-month follow up.

Field Trip Health (FTRP) is separating into two independent public companies. Its drug discovery division will become Reunion Neuroscience Inc. and its client care division will be renamed Field Trip Health and Wellness Ltd. The separation allows each company to establish distinct capital structures and management teams that are suited to their unique strategies.


Optimi Health (OPTI) opened the largest psilocybin cultivation facility in Canada and received approval to increase its production limit to 5000kg of dried psilocybin mushrooms. An in-person and virtual tour will be showcased on May 27.

Psilocybin churches in Oregon?

Attorney Jon Dennis submitted a proposal to Oregon’s advisory board that would allow spiritual and religious groups to become licensed as psilocybin service centers and hold group ceremonies.

Ballot measures proposed in WA

A ballot measure was proposed in Washington state to decriminalize all drugs and direct $141M of funding per year toward substance use treatment and prevention.

A separate ballot measure to legalize psilocybin services was also proposed recently. 

The measures will be added to the November ballot if enough signatures are gathered!
