About the PSYK ETF

While the global appetite for green technology is dominating the energy space, the health space is undergoing its revolution in utilizing psychedelics as a modern-day treatment option. The use of psychedelics for treatment purposes is not new, having been around for millenniums.

However, this is the first age of humanity to have the benefits of psychedelic treatment researched extensively, with the results so far being a gem for psychiatry. The investment world has noted these developments and provided an ETF comprising equities involved in research and development, production, and psychedelics as a pharmacological solution, the Horizons Psychedelic Stock Index ETF. It was among the first exchange-traded funds to launch in January of 2022, with this year expected to be one of the record ETF launches.

Industry outlook

Since the legalization of medicinal marijuana, research has accelerated to unearth the other psychedelics that have therapeutic potential. The result has been the growth of a corner of the health sector, legal psychedelics, with the ability to disrupt and revolutionize this industry. This ETF is bound to grow given its exposure to the psychiatry niche value chain and its ability to sort the global mental health issues, estimated to be one billion of the global populace.

The rise of the psychedelics space is also due to their ability to heal neurological conditions that have otherwise proven incurable with traditional medicines. Couple all these with a global regulatory greenlight on psychedelics, and what you have is a niche on the cusp of an unprecedented bullish run. The PSYK ETF offers pureplay exposure to the resulting returns.
