Psychedelics Could be Your Next Multi-Billion-Dollar Opportunity

It may only be a matter of time before mind-altering drugs make their way into Big Pharma treatments for mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, trauma, and addiction. If that happens, the industry could be worth well over $100 billion, as noted by analyst at Eight Capital, benefiting companies such as Silo Wellness (CSE:SINO), Field Trip Health Ltd. (CSE:FTRP)(OTC:FTRPF), Compass Pathways Inc. (NASDAQ:CMPS), HAVN Life Sciences Inc. (CSE:HAVN), and Tryp Therapeutics Inc. (CSE:TRYP).

Helping even more, a bill to decriminalize psychedelics in California is moving forward. In fact, according to Benzinga, “Introduced in February by Sen. Scott Wiener, SB 519 would remove penalties for the possession, personal use and social sharing of certain natural and synthetic psychoactive drugs including psilocybin, psilocyn, DMT, ibogaine, mescaline, LSD, ketamine and MDMA.”

Silo Wellness (CSE:SILO) is Trying to Reduce Trauma with Psychedelics

Early-mover Silo Wellness’ mission is to improve health and wellness through psychedelic medicine to reduce trauma and increase performance by destigmatizing the compounds and making their ingestion easier and more comfortable for the user.

In addition, the company just announced the appointment of its newest board member, Wayne Isaacs, a seasoned Jamaican-Canadian businessman and leader in natural, plant-based medicines. The appointment comes following the recent passing of board member, Maurice ‘Moe’ Colson, announced last week.

Wayne Isaacs joins the board of Silo Wellness following nearly two decades serving in key leadership roles from President to Chief Executive Officer of several Toronto, Canada-based mineral exploration companies including Forsys Metals Corporation, Augustine Ventures, Inc. and Delta Uranium, Inc. As one of the first movers in the legalized Jamaican cannabis industry, Mr. Isaacs presently serves as CEO of Green Stripe Naturals, which was formed to take advantage of the tremendous worldwide opportunities in medicinal cannabis via vertically integrated business efforts on the island nation. Isaacs has business interests in natural medical-based solutions companies in Spain as well as co-owning a medical clinic in Ontario, Canada.

“I couldn’t be more delighted to welcome Wayne Isaacs to the board of Silo Wellness,” stated Douglas K. Gordon, Chief Executive Officer of Silo Wellness. “I have known Wayne for the past few years as a leading entrepreneur who had the foresight and business acumen to succeed as an early mover in the legal cannabis movement in Jamaica. With his vast leadership experience in the public sector, Wayne brings a substantial degree of expertise in the plant-based wellness segment as well as direct knowledge building businesses in developed and emerging economies that will collectively add great value to Silo Wellness as we continue to expand globally.”

Jamaican born, Mr. Isaacs was educated at the prestigious Western University in Ontario and spent the majority of his career on Bay Street specializing in the resource sector both as a corporate executive of resource companies and as an investment banker. When not sitting on other corporate boards and serving as senior-most leader of both public and private companies, Isaacs chairs and participates in many international industry and thought leadership conferences as panelist, presenter and speaker.

“Shortly after entering the cannabis industry here in Jamaica, I had the great fortune of meeting Douglas Gordon, who was already active in the space driving thought leadership for this burgeoning category. While we became initially acquainted through our joint interests in cannabis and CBD, it was ultimately our shared belief in the benefits of Phytomedicine that expanded the conversation to include psilocybin and psychedelic mushrooms,” explained Mr. Isaacs. “What attracts me most to serving as board member for Silo Wellness is the opportunity to provide strategic consultation to the company’s unique product offering. I am committed to furthering the mission of Silo Wellness by helping to bring the positive benefits of psilocybin to a broader consumer audience, emerging markets as well as the medical community writ large.”
