    Honoring Indiginous Roots. Scientists studying the clinical applications of psychedelics inevitably find their way to ayahuasca, shaminism and the role of natural mind altering substances within indigenous spirituality and religious practice. In a field of study where science and religion can truly coexist, researchers and non indigenous people must be mindful of honoring the traditions of sacred plants as they attempt to build a bridge between native cultures and the efficacy of their medicine. This session will consider the traditional use of psychedelics and the reciprocity that must come along with adapting it Keynote - Otis Jasper

      The world of business is filled with ego-centric corporations whose main objective is to gain capital and fill the pockets of stakeholders. Connections made are centered around self-gain, which end result tends to create division and divide with little positive impact on the greater ecosystem. In the world of psychedelics and earth medicine there is a different vibe that drives its own set of objectives. Being that psychedelics and earth medicine give life to a more conscious and heart-based culture, strategies are naturally more interconnected and considerate of interdependent relationships. This microdose presentation will introduce you to affiliate marketing through a mycelium-like network methodology as a business strategy for brands who want long-term, deep-rooted growth in the new conscious gig economy.

      Some jurisdictions have already moved towards legalization of medical use of psychedelics. The wellness community, investors and researchers are starting to think positively about imminent wide acceptance. Up that's. Upcoming breakthroughs may involve core challenges, or changes to existing legislation.

      This presentation will highlight the primary findings of the Canadian Psychedelic Survey (CPS), the most comprehensive survey of Canadian Psychedelic Use to date. CPS took place in January 2022, with 2393 adult respondents, and during this session we'll learn who uses psychedelics in Canada, and explore patterns of use of 11 common psychedelics, as well as co-use with other substances. We'll also explore peak positive and negative experiences and associated outcomes, micro vs. macro use, and review primary motivations for both recreational and medical use."

      Industry analysts are bullish about the financial potential of the psychedelic drug market, predicting North American sales of almost $7 billion by 2027. A continuing search for new and effective treatments for burgeoning mental illnesses fuels the confidence. On the other hand, new medicinal drugs can face more regulatory roadblocks than recreational ones. This panel, representing some of the most active companies in psychedelic research and development, will come up with a realistic timetable for the full greenlight for licensed psychoactive healing.
