Today’s episode features Dillan Dinardo and Tom Ray, the co-founders of Mindstate Design Labs. Mindstate has a unique framework to design psychedelic compounds using what they call the “primer probe method.” This method involves combining a known psychedelic with a non-psychedelic compound. Mindstate just raised an $11.5M seed round.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Tom and Dillan’s experience in YCombinator and raising an $11.5M seed round
  • Tom’s friendship with the late psychedelic chemist Alexander Shulgin
  • Mindstate’s lead programs
  • The role of mystical states in the healing process
