Our Approach

We adopt a critical, analytical point of view—not pessimistic or cynical—that we hope provides a unique lens on the psychedelic industry for years to come: an opinionated exploration of the intersection between psychedelics and business. We don’t shy away from difficult questions and dive head-first into complexity.

Pα+ provides a one-stop solution for staying abreast of this rapidly developing space, with deeply researched deep dives and ‘in the weeds’ analysis complemented by our quick-takes, in-line explainers and backgrounders.

Our core coverage is the business of psychedelics, but this revolves around drug development, financing, science and drug development, legal and cultural developments, and so on.

Here are a handful of previews of our Pα+ coverage from the past year or so:
