Shroom or psychedelic stocks are becoming mainstream as their importance in alleviating mental health issues has been proven. In addition, the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 underlined the importance of mental health as the crisis had threatened both mental and physical health.
Research has been done to understand how LSD, magic mushrooms, or other psychedelic drugs work for mental health. The Johns Hopkins University has launched the Centre for Psychedelic Research with US$17 million funding for research.
It is estimated that the shroom market will reach US$6.85 billion by 2027. As a result, many psychedelic companies are going public. Psychedelic mushrooms or MDMA, and LSD are banned in the US currently. However, the Oregon State has recently legalized psychedelics for therapeutic purposes. Therefore, more states might legalise psychedelics for therapeutic purposes as well.
