Psilocybin for Fragile X Syndrome
Approved by Health Canada

Magic mushrooms will be going into the first ever Phase 2a clinical trial for use in fragile X syndrome, a cause of autism spectrum disorder.

Human testing on adults with fragile X will be done for the first time. It is hoped that the testing will show behavioral and cognitive symptom improvements. In addition, there will be psilocybin based treatments tested for neuroinflammatory disorders.
