Marik Hazan on Psychedelics and Venture Capital

by | Mon 10 Aug 2020

When I say the word “psychedelics”, you probably think of hazy people tripping on suspicious substances at a Grateful Dead concert. Well, the story is much deeper than this, and it is a very interesting story indeed.

It turns out there has been an enormous amount of research into psychedelics and their role in a variety of illnesses and conditions. So much so, a new revolution is forming to build businesses around a future in which psychedelics could be available on the market.

One person spearheading this revolution is Marik Hazan, founder of Tabula Rasa Ventures. I was thrilled to have Marik come on Conversations With Bacon to dig into the story, the science, the business and more.

In this show we dig into a broad swathe of topics including:

  • The impact of psychedelics on mental health, trauma, PTSD, and more
  • The culture of psychedelics and how it is changing
  • The difference between medical and recreational use of psychedelics
  • The role of scientific trials and the data about psychedelics efficacy
  • How addictive different psychedelics compounds are
  • How the venture and startup market is exploring psychedelics
  • The impact of stigma in building credibility around new industries
