Transforming mental health

The world urgently needs a new way to treat mental health issues, and at Psyrx we believe psychedelics are a big part of the solution. Bringing over 20 years of experience in the pharmaceutical, medical device and cannabis industries, we set out to transform the growing psychedelics market. Psyrx is one of the few companies to offer GMP-standard naturally sourced (not synthesized) psychedelics based on high-quality botanic extracts from mushrooms (Psilocybin) and root bark (Ibogaine), produced using our agro-medical bioreactor platform.
We intend to use: these extracts to supply APIs to pharma companies or to improve current anti-depressant treatments through microdosing, with a convenient daily dose which does not cause a psychedelic experience and is non-disruptive to people’s way of life, limiting the side effects of current medications - helping transform mental health treatment outcomes.

Unleashing the therapeutic
potential of Ibogaine & Psilocybin


Ibogaine is the key psychoactive component of the Iboga plant. Ibogaine has been recognized as an anti-addiction drug that, following a single treatment, produces more successful results than traditional methods, while also reducing depression and anxiety.

Medical indications:

Treatment of addictions, Treatment of depression, fatigue and recovery from contagious diseases and High blood pressure.
