Now psychedelics are coming to your medicine cabinet

Adding psychedelics to mainstream drugs may seem a bit “out there,” but in fact it’s on trend… Synthetic versions of psychedelic substances are easier to manufacture uniformly according to industry standards, but they may not work as well as natural versions.

“We believe there’s a big difference between biological and synthetic molecules, especially in how they interact with receptors in the brain,” says Hecht, [who] started his career 20 years ago in The Netherlands, managing cannabis dispensaries and seed companies… [and] is developing standardized pharma-grade psychedelics from natural sources – not synthetics – as active pharmaceutical ingredients. “Synthetics are not as successful as a ‘key’ fitting into the ‘lock.’ But it is complicated to work with biological molecules.”
