Mental health and finding alternative ways to improve health and wellness are at the forefront for many people today. While people have turned to what Westernized medicine considers traditional pharmaceuticals, the psychedelics industry is quickly leading the charge as an alternative for mental health treatments.

Even with the psychedelics industry in its nascency, the opportunities that exist across the value chain are quickly being uncovered by early adopters in the sector.
