In today’s episode, we explore the therapeutic application of DMT across a range of diseases and conditions including Alzheimer’s, stroke, and organ transplants. While much of the attention in psychedelic medicine has been on their ability to address neuropsychiatric indications, research suggests that psychedelics like DMT have a far wider therapeutic potential. The episode features three biotech companies developing DMT therapies: Algernon, Psilera, and Pharmadrug.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • DMT therapies for organ transplants, stroke patients and substance abuse disorders
  • Research supporting NN-DMT’s antioxidative and anti-inflammatory effects and the receptors it targets
  • Being a private company vs. public company in psychedelics
