NeonMind completed its oversubscribed Initial Public Offering on December 30, 2020, for gross proceeds of $4,600,000.
NeonMind is a psychedelic drug development company. It’s mission is to help people change their lives by changing their minds, through treatment with psychedelics.
NeonMind’s first step is tackling one of the biggest health issues the world is facing right now: obesity. It’s an epidemic that is responsible for 37% of the global burden of disease, according to the National Centre for Biotechnology Information. NeonMind is exploring psilocybin (a complex organic compound found in psychedelic mushrooms) as an innovative treatment approach to weight loss through a preclinical trial. It has hired the University of British Columbia, who has been granted authorization by Health Canada to use Psilocybin in NeonMind’s Preclinical Trial, to test the potential use of Psilocybin to improve eating habits and cause weight loss. The Preclinical Trial started in November 2020 and NeonMind expects to complete an application for a Phase 2 Human Trial in the spring of 2021.
NeonMind has filed 5 US provisional patent applications claiming methods of aiding in weight loss, treating compulsive eating disorder, treating obesity or a complication of obesity, and/or altering the diet of an individual by administering psilocybin and/or other psychedelic compounds or their analogs or by administering psilocybin or its analog in conjunction with therapy or other treatments.
NeonMind is also pursuing commercialization of its catalogue of proprietary functional mushroom product formulas. It recently launched a collection of 4 mushroom infused coffees which are infused with functional mushrooms Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail, Reishi and Cordyceps. The NeonMind eCommerce platform launched in November 2020 at www.neonmind.com for direct to consumer sales of these products.
