Mental health has been one of the hot topics in the medical industry over the past few years. Widespread awareness was brought to the public eye during the COVID-19 pandemic as people in prolonged lockdowns struggled with isolation as well as the threat of a deadly virus. The World Health Organization has issued statements to emphasize how mental health issues are serious, life-altering conditions not to be downplayed. As a response, various US states raised legislation to legalize psilocybin services to address psychiatric issues. This triggered investor interest in psychedelic stocks. 

While some may say it’s still too early, a few might argue that this is a great chance to get on the ground floor of something big.

So, let’s look at psychedelic stocks that offer the best potential growth in the coming years.
