Under the radar, low float with patented psilocybin treatments. Silo Pharma (OTCQB: SILO) heads are turning with names like Pfizer (PFE), Eli Lilly (LLY) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) entering this space. Expect some M&A within this sector soon. Patented tech is key.
Science and commerce are looking at psychedelic substances such as psilocybin, LSD, Ketamine and MDMA and to treat many of the same neurological disorders that cannabis does and so much more.
Silo Pharma is one the few biotech’s we have come across with university collaborations and patented technology for treatments with psilocybin!
Silo’s goal is to identify and partner with leading medical universities, providing the needed financial resources to develop safe therapeutic treatments while moving cutting-edge research through the clinical stage and into commercialization.
Opportunities to invest in companies developing new technologies usually come too late. They come to our attention after a significant catalyst has already moved the price significantly higher and we find ourselves wishing we’d have gotten in while the shares were cheap. SILO is a company with shares that are still affordable, and we’ve laid out the reasons that might change soon below.
SILO has assembled a team of scientific advisors to ensure they are looking at viable projects and they have the available capital to finance them through the full term of development.
It wasn’t that long ago that developing biopharma treatments with cannabis derivatives was theoretical, and start-ups were cheap to invest in. A lot of fortunes have been made in the cannabis sector since.
Merging traditional therapeutics with psychedelic research.
Recent Developments and News
On July 7, 2021, SILO announced they extended their agreement for experimental Rheumatoid Arthritis nanoparticle homing peptide. Eric Weisblum, Chairman and CEO of Silo Pharma stated, “The ability to deliver traditional therapeutics, psilocybin or other psychedelic drugs directly to targeted areas of the body with this technology could be revolutionary by increasing the efficacy of the treatment while reducing toxicity and the amount of medication needed.”
SILO has entered into a Scientific Research Agreement (SRA) with the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). This SRA, just negotiated in June 2021, will leverage four other clinical trials being planned by the university, to determine the effects of psilocybin on inflammatory markers of patients who have exhibited Parkinson’s, Bipolar disorder, and chronic back pain.
On October 19, 2020, SILO was approved for trading on the OTCQB Venture Market, an upgrade from the pink sheets. On May 25, 2021, the company announced that it has submitted its initial application to list on the NASDAQ Capital Market.

Let’s look at the programs that SILO is involved with:

With a current market value under $25M, SILO looks to be under the radar of a lot of biopharma investors. With an up-list to the NASDAQ pending SILO could quickly become well known and of course the market value could soar. A cursory look at development stage biopharma NASDAQ stocks will result in a plethora of companies valued in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
SILO already has collaborations with universities to develop leading edge science and innovative therapies for some of the hardest to treat indications. The combination of psychedelic compounds with existing and newly developed therapies is a novel approach to new treatments and SILO is at the forefront of these developments.

The psychedelics sector is growing rapidly with many public companies already established and IPOs for others already planned. SILO happens to be several steps ahead of the pack with several patents pending, university collaborations and capital available for development. Its important to note that SILO is looking beyond depressive disorders and working to develop treatments for other indications.
Author and PhD, Joshua Cohen published an article on July 5, 2021, in Forbes titled “Psychedelic Drugs Are Moving from The Fringes of Medicine to the Mainstream”. His insights into the sector are invaluable and he discusses the FDA relationship with psychedelic compounds. It’s a great read for anyone with a current interest in this field of medicine.
