We are excited that as of today our functional mushroom nutraceutical product, GOODMIND™ is available online. The GOODMIND™ formulas harness the power of adaptogens, these are non-toxic, non-psychoactive fungi, used for centuries in traditional medicine for their stress-relieving benefits. GOODMIND™ is designed to nourish the mind and elevate everyday life by enhancing mental capacity and the body’s ability to adapt to stress.
We believe that natural psilocybin offers multiple benefits for the long-term treatment of mental health conditions that may result from trauma. Plant-based and natural remedies are our preferred route as conscious consumers increasingly seek more natural treatments when it comes to supporting their mental wellbeing.
Psyence has signed a partnership agreement with Clerkenwell Health, a leading psychedelic Contract Research Organisation (CRO) based in the United Kingdom to develop market leading clinical trials in the field of palliative care. Clerkenwell will be responsible for jointly designing and delivering the UK clinical trial. Palliative care is the treatment and alleviation of suffering for those facing a serious acute or persistent medical issue, whether the prognosis is deemed terminal or chronic and ongoing.
In this week's diary I reflect on the impact of trauma in our lives following an unexpected medical emergency at home. This has fuelled my passion for what we are doing here at Psyence and the positive impact we could have on the lives of so many people.
On 20 June 2021 we celebrate the inaugural World Psychedelic Day. This day has been set aside to recognise a new era of rational and informed perspectives on modern day psychedelics and traditional psychoactive plant medicines. To mark this day, we asked some of our team why they believe in the healing power of psychedelics and natural plant-based medicine.
