Lucy Scientific Beats MindMed and Seelos Therapeutics to the Punch

Lucy Scientific Discovery (NASDAQ: LSDI) (“Lucy” or the “Company), a Nasdaq-listed company with holdings and operations in a variety of psychotropic businesses, just announced the acquisition of the Intellectual Property of High Times, its Licensing Agreements and Royalty Streams in all-stock transaction. This was a brilliant strategic business move.

With first movers in the “Mind Science” space like MindMed (NASDAQ: MNMD) and Seelos Therapeutics (NASDAQ: SEEL) realizing than 80% and 40% year-to-date gains respectively, today’s acquisition by Lucy delivers immediate revenue, an expanded product line, a proven and highly influential platform, and a vast customer database, in one quick strike.

Credibility and Audience Reach

High Times has been an icon in cannabis culture for decades, demonstrating credibility and influence within the market niche. Their media assets reach millions, presenting an ideal platform for educating the public about Lucy’s psychotropic businesses. This large and engaged audience should prove invaluable in Lucy’s pursuit of psychotropic research and associated future product launches.

Regulatory Momentum

High Times has been instrumental in shaping positive public sentiment around cannabis, a feat it achieved through education and advocacy. Its history and experience in navigating complex regulatory landscapes could offer a template for Lucy in overcoming similar challenges. As the shareholders Lucy are well aware, public sentiment and regulatory approval are interconnected. Capitalizing on the media reach and influence of High Times could catalyze a more favorable regulatory environment for Lucy, driving long-term shareholder value through potentially quicker paths to approval in various untapped markets.

Commercial Synergies

High Times has built a robust commercial ecosystem around cannabis culture, ranging from events to merchandise. For Lucy, leveraging these commercial capabilities can diversify revenue streams and create synergistic opportunities. High Times events can serve as platforms for Lucy’s psychotropic products and promotions, as well as networking with medical professionals, thereby not only driving awareness but also potentially increasing the company’s intellectual capital.

Brand Amplification

The acquisition of High Times provides an opportunity to create a unified, robust brand presence in the psychotropic medicine space. The reputation and authority that come with High Times can be funneled to promote responsible use and credible science surrounding psychotropic medical treatments. The result is a stronger, more cohesive brand that enhances investor confidence and attracts further investment, thereby benefiting the shareholders.


For Lucy, the acquisition of High Times Holding Corp’s assets and followers is not merely a value-add; it is a strategic imperative. By providing access to a vast, engaged audience, influencing regulatory outcomes, offering commercial synergies, and amplifying brand authority, the acquisition can generate long-term value for Lucy shareholders.
