…open science approach to… MDMA [& psilocybin]
Instead of holding on tightly to trade secrets…
MAPS paper… read as a step-by-step production recipe, the study maps out how MDMA with a purity of 99.4% can be made from non-controlled substances… describes a process of making MDMA according to “current Good Manufacturing Processes” (cGMP), with the end product being 30.000 (167mg) individual doses… a similar article detailing the cGMP production of psilocybin. In the Usona paper from 2020, researchers describe a scalable process of making psilocybin with a yield of up to 40.000 individual (25mg) doses. Also comparable to the MAPS paper, the method described by Usona starts without controlled substances and yields a considerable amount of doses per batch.
