Reasons To Invest

  • Psychoactive Pharmaceuticals is in the infancy stage, and we have an early mover’s advantage.

  • FDA Approval path is capital + human capital intensive, which provides a high barrier to entry.

  • Ei.Ventures’ business model is dual track (FDA Pipeline + Nutraceutical Sales) to help reduce overall cash burn until Approval (or Investment Exit).

  • We are aiming to become a natural and effective substitute for today’s large antidepressant medication.

  • Large Total Addressable Market - $34B+ in annual sales.

For 700 million people worldwide suffering from one form of mental illness or another, access to these potentially life-changing compounds can’t come soon enough.   

In the current environment of fully synthetic products, we may not see true access given until 2025 or beyond.

Emotional Intelligence Ventures has plans to change this using plant medicine and botanical psychedelic therapeutics.

Our suite of mental wellness products and services was designed to prevent, reverse, and manage chronic mental health disorders.

We offer an integration of novel therapeutic formulations:

  • Novel psychedelic formulations made from botanicals

  • Functional mushrooms nootropic support 

  • Telepsychiatry and wellness apps

Ei.Ventures Investment Into Telepsychiatry

We believe in emphasizing early evidence-based non-pharmacological intervention, avoiding over medication and in the intersection of cutting-edge technology and societal shift in perception of mental health care.

Evidence-based Benefits

  • Personal advocate via Deep learning

  • Telepsychiatry

  • Wellness sensing technologies, mind-body

  • A recent survey of 2,000 Americans found one in two of those surveyed have eschewed more traditional medicine in favor of natural alternatives

  • Acquisition strategy

Transdermal Psilly

Transdermal therapeutic systems are high-tech patches that make treatment much more convenient. Ei.Ventures is exploring the use of transdermal patches as a delivery mechanism which would allow Psilly to enter the system and bypass the blood brain barrier.

Top 5 Advantages

  • Improved well well-being of the patient

  • Constant drug levels

  • Fewer side effects

  • Direct delivery of active ingredients to the body, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract

  • Less substance required due to even and direct release into the bloodstream

Functional Mushrooms MANA Nutraceuticals

We are creating seven proprietary formulations using a unique formulation process for enhanced bioavailability and efficacy.

What these Products Target

  • Cognition and immune system

  • Energy, vitality, mood, sleep, and weight loss

  • Fewer side effects

  • Mental and physical optimization formicro dosers

  • Nootropic or Smart Drugs

  • Joint & Muscle Pain

These visuals are for illustrative purposes only. The final product may differ entirely from the visuals.
Meet Psilly

Psilly is a psilocybin-based formulation that starts with natural fungal extracts (our nano super psilocybin API compound). This high-quality psilocybin extract is combined in a stacked formulation with other naturally occurring and complementary plant extracts.

  • Minimal effective dose (MED) of psilocybin with negligible hallucinogenic effect while still providing patient with a psychedelic experience

  • Little to no side effects reported – No “hangover” post-consumption

  • 1 to 3 hour active period

  • Ability to continue a microdose with very small amounts

Synthetics Vs. Botanicals

The Entourage Effect and Psychedelics

The Entourage Effect says that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. This has played out in the Cannabis space and there is mounting evidence that synthetic psychedelics do not produce an entourage effect. This entourage effect is a missing ingredient in the current psychedelic drug development landscape. Our commitment is to stay true to the whole fungi and plant. This allows us to avoid skewing the natural balance in our bodies and minds and potentially provide much effective treatments and drug protocols.

What Makes Ei.Ventures Different?

Developing Botanical (all fungi or plant based) Psychedelic API and Therapeutics

Potentially safer and greater efficacy. Gives us the ability to have first-mover advantage in legal jurisdictions. Novel IP that we own and have the ability to license.

Strong Revenue Arm Development

Focusing on developing strong revenue arms with mushroom nootropics brand, Telepsychiatry Investment, and picks and shovels Psychedelic API Pipeline.

Development Pipeline

R&D Pipeline

Novel Psychedelic Drug Development Plan Key Points:

  • FDA timeline is 5-7 years with intent to launch into legal juris dictions to therapists and clinics by late 2022.

  • Our proprietary nano super molecule formulations may produce greater bioavailability and an entourage effect with greater results.

  • A DMF allowing us to commercialize and sell the API to other organizations without detailing our process or compounds in the API.

  • Completion of this potentially leads to obtaining aDrug Master File (DMF) from the FDA.

Psychedelic API and Supply Chain Development

  • Acquired a license to proprietary formulations for psychedelic API.

  • First compound Psilly API into non-clinical CMC studies launches in 2021.

  • Completion of this potentially leads to obtaining a Drug Master File (DMF) from the FDA.
