One hundred (100) clinical-stage psychedelic drug stocks now trade on North American stock exchanges. Sixty (60) of them (see here) research the treatment of a variety of mental illnesses based on the use of 10 different psychedelic substances (read 10 Psychedelic Substances And The 36 Companies Researching Them) and 40 research the treatment of illnesses based on the use of THC marijuana (read Marijuana Drug Stocks: All You Need To Know). The criteria for inclusion in the munKNEE Pure-Play Marijuana & Psychedelic Compounds-Based Drug Stocks Index is that its constituents have market capitalizations in excess of $35M (only eight have market caps below $100M) and only 18 of those 100 psychedelic drug stocks meet that criteria.
