Entering the Emerging Psychedelic Market

Psychedelic drugs have the potential to transform mental health and addiction treatments. Initial research has shown positive results for individuals suffering from cluster headaches, depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, and alcoholism. It is predicted that legal psychedelics will be a multi-billion-dollar industry. Reference: Forbes

Our Approach

Sheva brings six years of experience in every facet of cannabis industry business development, twenty years of deep therapeutic and personal experience with psychedelic healing, and has been integral to the decriminalization movement in Denver and beyond. She believes the work of developing the psychedelic industry the right way by focusing on equitable access and mental health is a crucial priority. This isn’t about psychedelics, this is about human rights. This is about liberating the human spirit, and it is our collective responsibility to get it right.

Session 1 – The Past

A Journey Through The History of Psychedelics

In this session we’ll explore traditional and indigenous use as well as 20th century research prior to prohibition. From the mid 1940s to the late 1960s academic psychedelic research was being conducted in Europe and the United States exploring the therapeutic use of psychedelics with thousands of published peer-reviewed studies, but it came to an abrupt end in 1967 when all research was halted due to criminalization and the Controlled Substances Act. We’ll cover:

  • What was discovered with psychedelic research before the era of prohibition?
  • Who were the main contributors who set the stage for today’s psychedelic research and therapeutic use landscape?
  • What was the catalyst for change and growth that brought about the Decriminalization movement? 

 Session 2 – The Present

Our Challenge: Mental Health and Social Equity

 The movement to decriminalize psilocybin catalyzed a new psychedelic awareness that created a brand new ecosystem filled with incredible potential. This ecosystem and the industry forming inside of it is uniquely suited to address some of the most challenging and pervasive issues in our culture. As leaders and innovators, we get to design an inclusive and equitable industry centered on addressing our society’s vast mental health crisis.

  • How is the psychedelic industry positioned to serve these challenges?
  • What steps are currently being taken to address these major struggles?
  • Who are the main players in the current psychedelic landscape? What are their interests and what do they contribute to the industry?

Session 3 – The Future, and You

Empowering Through Community Engagement

As leaders and innovators we have an opportunity, and an ethical responsibility, to curate an industry that is centered on social equity and mental health as guiding principles for our work.  The collective power of our professional efforts and business acumen can influence regulations, and if aligned, we can prevent repeating some of the same regulatory ignorance that has occurred in the cannabis industry.

During this session, we will facilitate workshops, brainstorming, collaboration, and harness our power to design the psychedelic industry to reflect and amplify our holistic and community-focused goals. 

Let’s use our cannabis experience and create a new story!  These questions will guide our work together:

  • What drives your interest in the psychedelic industry?
  • What is your vision in psychedelics?  How do you want your professional and personal experience to translate into this vision?
  • What are your unknowns? Preconceptions?
  • How do we define success in this industry?
  • How do we, as professionals and industry leaders, solve the present day challenges
  • How do we use lessons learned in the cannabis industry to create an industry centered on mental health and equitable access?
