Everybody’s Going Bonkers About First Psychedelic ETF

Quite honestly by the end of the week we’re somewhat sick and tired of reading about this ETF but in case you’ve sensibly hidden under a rock Psilocybin Alpha have quite a good general article about it.

Of course what would be perfect would be if  Game Stop Reddit culture moved into the world of psychedelics to apply a bit of chaos theory to the world of profit takers as a shot across the bows in the early days of this “market”

Horizons Psychedelic Stock Index ETF


The world’s first psychedelics ETF was launched by Horizons ETFs in January 2021, marking a milestone for the space.

Key Facts

  • Inception date: Jan 26, 2021
  • Underlying Index: North American Psychedelics Index (by Solactive)
  • Management Fee: 0.85%

Investment Objective

“The ETF seeks to replicate, to the extent possible and net of expenses, the performance of a market index that is designed to provide exposure to the performance of a basket of North American publicly-listed life sciences companies having significant business activities in, or significant exposure to, the psychedelics industry. Currently, the ETF seeks to replicate the performance of the North American Psychedelics Index, net of expenses.”

Horizons Psychedelic Stock Index ETF

After decades of restrictions, recent policy changes and exemptions in Canada and the United States have allowed for increased research in the therapeutic application of psychedelic compounds, and the potential to create an entirely new marketplace for drugs derived from psychedelics. That momentum has allowed for the emergence of a number of psychedelic-focused life sciences companies and we expect many more to follow. An ETF makes particular sense for this emerging industry as it offers investors diversified exposure to the overall growth of the psychedelics sector without the same single stock risk associated with picking your own companies.
