Here’s What You Missed in Cannabis, Psychedelics This Week

In this week’s “Rising High,” The Fly’s recurring series focused on cannabis and psychedelic stock news, The Fly looks back on a discovery of compounds, analyst views and a brand launch.

ENVERIC DISCOVERS PRECLINICAL COMPOUNDS: Enveric Biosciences (ENVB) announced Wednesday the discovery of multiple novel compounds sourced using the company’s Psybrary platform and proprietary computational chemistry and artificial intelligence drug-discovery system. The novel compounds span seven distinct molecule classes totaling at least 57 unique product opportunities, all of which are protected by Enveric’s expansive intellectual property portfolio and represent potential out-licensing opportunities and non-dilutive revenue streams for the company. Together, the novel and distinct molecule classes broaden and deepen Enveric’s library of assets targeting difficult-to-address mental health disorders, adding to its lead candidate EB-003, a first-in-class neuroplastogen designed to eliminate hallucinations, and EB-002, formerly EB-373, a next generation synthetic prodrug of the active metabolite, psilocin. “Our ability to identify EB-003 and EB-002 as our lead drug candidates was the result of an extensive process in which our research team analyzed more than one thousand compounds spanning numerous classes of molecules, utilizing our proprietary PsyAI and Psybrary platforms,” said CEO Joseph Tucker. “As a result, Enveric now possesses what we believe to be one of the most diverse portfolios of potential drug molecules for the treatment of key, underserved mental health and neurological disorders. Our dedicated approach to protecting our discoveries should enable us to generate significant near- and long-term value for our shareholders via potential partnering and/or licensing agreements.” (read more)

INNOVATIVE INDUSTRIAL PRICE TARGET RAISE: Roth MKM raised the firm’s price target on Innovative Industrial Properties (IIPR) on Wednesday to $117 from $110 and kept a Buy rating on the shares. The company should report another solid quarter despite managing through a U.S. cannabis liquidity crisis, limited capital to deploy, and various tenant defaults, the analyst said. While new tenants on its defaulted properties have been slow to materialize, Roth MKM expects to see Innovative Industrial Properties make progress in re-leasing over the near-term, the firm added.

CYBIN PRICE TARGET LOWERED: On Thursday, Canaccord lowered the firm’s price target on Cybin (CYBN) to $4 from $5 and kept a Buy rating on the shares. The firm said they believe shares remain undervalued relative to the sizes of the indications it is targeting. In the near term, given the early, but promising data on CYB003 so far, they remain cautiously optimistic heading into the 3-month efficacy data that could come any day now. (read more)
