Numinus NUMIF concluded its acquisition of Novamind NVMDF in one of the most significant cases of consolidation for the psychedelics industry this year. The takeover gives Numinus a strong entry into the U.S., with 13 operating wellness clinics across North America, four clinical research sites and a dedicated psychedelics research laboratory.

Elon Musk, Tesla TSLA CEO and one of the most influential thought leaders of the day, shared more proof of his support for psychedelic medicine, tweeting that “psychedelics and MDMA can make a real difference to mental health, especially for extreme depression and PTSD. We should take this seriously.”

In Colorado, Governor Jared Polis signed a bill that allows for the legal possession and use of MDMA with a medical prescription, provided the drug becomes FDA-approved. This decision could put the state ahead of its peers to launch the delivery of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy after its expected approval next year.
