Ronan Levy, Founder of Field Trip Ventures sits down with The Green Rush this week as the team looks to cover something a little different: psychedelics. Field Trip Ventures is a first-of-its-kind venture that is blending operational execution with strategic investing across all aspects of the psychedelics supply chain.  From basic research on botanical psychedelics like psilocybin, to the operation of world-class clinics focused on psychedelic-assisted therapies (for example, using MDMA to treat PTSD), Ronan and his team are on the front lines of the “next cannabis.” The Green Rush will chat with Ronan about his cannabis roots including his time as an executive with Aurora Cannabis, the re-emergence of psychedelic-based therapies, how psychedelics could follow the same “playbook” as cannabis as it looks to move towards legalization and busting common myths and misinformation around its addictiveness and dangers.
