We are excited to add 8 new companies to our Psychedelic Invest Index – the first index in the market that comprehensively covers the entire public psychedelic sector.
Nearly one year ago, we launched this index to bring much-needed financial data for new investors tracking the market. At the time, the index only consisted of 22 companies. With today’s update, the index now boasts a total 58 publicly traded organizations – representing a 163% jump in the size of the market year over year.
Today’s update also comes with some notable changes to the index landscape.
For example, three of the eight new constituents landed in the Top 10 by Market Capitalization. As larger companies get added to the mix, the index weighting becomes more diversified and will likely lead to less volatility in regards to the index’s spot price.
  • atai Life Sciences (ATAI) is now the largest company in the space with a market cap ($2.8M) that’s near twice the size of the second largest company, Compass Pathways ($1.6M)
  • GH Research (GHRS) is now the 4th largest company in the space, boasting a market cap of $1.08M.
  • Goodness Growth Holdings (GDNS), a company that is still primarily tied to the cannabis industry, is now considered the 9th largest company on the index.
On another note, five of six largest companies in the space are currently trading on the NASDAQ. With exposure to many more investors, one may think that these companies are leading the way on Share Volume (i.e. the amount of shares traded daily), but that’s far from the case. Atai, for example, see’s significantly less trading volume than others despite having the largest market cap.
