Psyched: Christie's Launches NFT Collection Supporting Psychedelic Science, Origin's Listing On CSE Gives Retail Investors Access To Private Companies

The world of psychedelics is getting a crossover with another category in the millennial catalog of trendy investments: NFTs.

Legendary art and luxury auction house Christie’s, is launching a new NFT collection meant to support the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), by donating all of its profits to the NGO’s research programs into psychedelics and mental health.

The collection is titled “Cartography of the Mind” and will feature works from Beeple, among other digital artists.

For psychedelics investors not willing to cross the threshold into art collecting, Monday marked a new opportunity with the listing of Origin Therapeutics Holdings on the CSE under the symbol “ORIG.”

This psychedelics investment issuer works as an ETF, but instead of holding shares from public companies, it has positions in private companies. This option allows for non-accredited retail investors to gain exposure to private companies they might otherwise not be able to access.

Meanwhile in Benzinga’s home state of Michigan, a psychedelics decriminalization proposal was held back by activists from the 2022 ballot in order to gather more signatures and make the 2024 ballot with increased support.
