Compass' Magic Mushroom Drug Clears Phase 1 Without Safety Issues

Biotech is getting wild and I mean that in a good way. Compass Pathways created a synthetic form of the active ingredient in magic mushrooms and just cleared an early-phase trial. The drug is COMP360 and made it through the placebo-controlled phase 1 trial without any safety issues. This is a positive as the company will continue testing the use in treatment-resistant depression.

According to the trial, there were no serious adverse events with most of them being psychedelic in nature.

The active ingredient in psychedelic mushrooms is Psilocybin and has shown success in depression but they are a ways off from approval as more rigorous testing and trial will be needed.

What do you think? If you were suffering from depression, would you take an approved Magic Mushroom type drug if it was approved and efficacious?

I'm sorry, but to me, a serious adverse event of a drug is if I start having psychedelic thoughts and start trippin'. This MagicMushroom better cure cancer for me to take it.

THIS IS AWESOME
