Mydecine, which is based in Vancouver, is a biotechnology company "engineering the next wave of innovative medications and treatment protocols to directly address mental health with a particular emphasis on addiction and PTSD," per the release.
Mydecine's lead product is MYCO-006, an analogue of the active ingredient in marijuana known as MDMA, or ecstasy, that has been shown to be effective in treating pain, anxiety, depression, addiction, and post-traumatic stress disorder, among other conditions.
