Comment on Coffee with Psilocybin? by GordoTEK https://psilocybintechnology.com/magic-mushrooms-in-morning-coffee/#comment-1163 Mon, 28 Oct 2019 14:52:30 +0000 https://psilocybintechnology.com/?p=2398#comment-1163 It seems a bit premature to talk about retail psilocybin products (at least in the US). We might see FDA approval of psilocybin to treat depression with a very elaborate protocol involving therapist guides and a prescription, but that is light years away from retail products. Even the very progressive Oregon proposal up for vote next year, would not allow for psilocybin retail products.

Comment on Investing in Psychedelics, Psilocybin, or Magic Mushrooms by Rob Timbren https://psilocybintechnology.com/investing-in-psychedelics-psilocybin-or-magic-mushrooms/#comment-1150 Wed, 23 Oct 2019 16:58:48 +0000 https://psilocybintechnology.com/?p=1507#comment-1150 Hello
I would like to draw your attention re: Frontier Neurochem primary focus is Iboga alkaloids. Actually, the Company focus is Psilocybe alkaloids, although its technologies can be used for variety of alkaloids including Ibogaine .. from its website: “The company develops and markets tools and technologies for the cGMP production, standardization and formulations of bioactive compounds extracted from fungi (mushroom)… Current focus is on Psilocybin mushroom.” Thank you for your mention.
Rob

Comment on $800 Million Valuation for First Psilocybin Company? by Joey Ortiz https://psilocybintechnology.com/800-million-valuation-for-first-psilocybin-company/#comment-1149 Wed, 23 Oct 2019 08:20:37 +0000 https://psilocybintechnology.com/?p=1149#comment-1149 “Drawing again from the lessons learned in the cannabis industry, formulated products combining multiple active ingredients offer benefits beyond single molecules. See Entourage Effect. Some have even suggested that “The Future of Cannabis is Formulations of Cannabinoids.” See Madison Margolin’s article in Rolling Stone. Recent acquisitions in the cannabis space demonstrate that patents protecting such formulations are highly valuable.”

I would note that cannabis companies are acquiring patent *applications*, not grants. And they are paying absurd amounts of money to do so. Tracking these patents’ failures to get granted reveals that you cannot broadly patent a mixture of cannabinoids *except* for a specific purpose (X-Y mixture for the treatment of ______), as GW Pharmaceuticals did.

Patents must be novel, non-obvious, and useful to be granted. I believe that mixtures of “entourage” compounds cannot be patented because such mixtures are highly obvious and non-novel. Adding “for the purpose of ” makes it patentable.

Comment on Compass Pathways’s Patents by GordoTEK https://psilocybintechnology.com/compass-pathwayss-patents/#comment-1128 Wed, 16 Oct 2019 14:49:32 +0000 https://psilocybintechnology.com/?p=1674#comment-1128 Thanks for this more balanced look at the Compass Pathways patents. I was at the recent Horizons Perspectives on Psychedelics conference where George Goldsmith was on a panel about economic models for psychedelics. He was challenged by others on the panel and reamed out in a question from the audience, but honestly I think the commercialization of psychedelics is a net positive. We have seen the same thing already happen with cannabis. I even ran into Hamilton Morris on the street outside the conference, and he also acknowledged that commercialization is a net benefit to the community and contributes to progress. Also note that there are already new processes to produce psilocybin that may in fact be superior to the methods described in Compass’ patents (there is an enzyme based approach which greatly reduces the number of steps, published in 2017 and a brand new approach using genetically modified e-coli just published a few weeks ago). There is nothing to stop universities or non-profits from developing their own process for treating patients with psilocybin (or other substances) or manufacturing said substances. Also note that Compass is providing researchers with psilocybin free of charge.

Comment on Formulating New “Magic Mushroom” Compositions by Staff Scientist https://psilocybintechnology.com/formulating-new-magic-mushroom-compositions/#comment-1124 Mon, 14 Oct 2019 16:37:23 +0000 http://psilocybintechnology.com/?p=254#comment-1124 Thanks for your comment. How do you know that your method “stabilizes everything and would probably last forever”? What sort of characterization or chemical analysis did you perform?
