On Tuesday, October 13, 2015, former NBA star Lamar Odom was found slumped unconscious on the floor of a Nevada brothel…
Doctors discovered a concentrated concoction of crack, ganja, and cognac coursing through his veins…
He suffered 12 seizures, six strokes, and his heart stopped twice. His lungs collapsed, his kidneys ruptured, and he was in a life-supported coma for four days.1 His survival defied the odds.
But, fast-forward to today and Lamar Odom is a changed and sober man. He has fought his inner demons and brought his depression and crippling addictions under control.
And he credits a lot of his recovery journey to psychedelics.
Specifically, to the psychedelic that goes by the street names Special K or Vitamin K.
Because although most people immediately think of that party candy when they hear Special K or Vitamin K, the truth is…
Psychedelics Are Rapidly Gaining Acceptance in Their Use for Mental Health Conditions
Which is why we’re so excited about the recent listing of Revitalist Lifestyle and Wellness (CSE:CALMCSE:CALM), a holistic wellness company that’s changing the game when it comes to mental health – using, you guessed it, psychedelics.
So why psychedelics?
As Odom explained, “It can help with addiction, any falsehoods you have that’s holding you back in life.” 2
The evidence supporting psychedelics as alleviating symptoms of mental health conditions is far more than a celebrity anecdote.
- A study in the Biological Psychiatry journal showed that they resulted in a “significant improvement in depressive symptoms within 72 hours”3
- Crucially, another study showed that certain psychedelics “[have] rapid antidepressant effects in patients with treatment-resistant depression” (which affects 10 to 20% of all depression sufferers)4
- A meta-analysis of 14 randomized controlled trials determined that certain psychedelics are “associated with robust reductions in suicidal thoughts”5
- And a study conducted by researchers at Mount Sinai Hospital found that infusions of certain psychedelics “significantly reduce symptom severity in individuals with chronic post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)”
- Trials have also shown improvements in blow and alcohol abuse following infusions of certain psychedelics67
Neuroimaging technology has shown that psychedelics not only alter brain circuit function to improve depressive symptoms…
But also stimulate the regrowth of neural connections8…
Meaning they can potentially help both the symptoms and the root cause, unlike the “symptom only” conventional methods.
With results like these, people are becoming increasingly aware of psychedelics’ powerful potential in helping alleviate symptoms of various mental health conditions – making companies like Revitalist Lifestyle and Wellness (CSE:CALMCSE:CALM) more important than ever…
Why? Because the mental health problem is only getting worse.
The American Psychological Association recently sounded the alarm on a “growing national mental health crisis.”9
And major depressive disorder alone is estimated to cost the US economy a staggering $289 to $313 billion just for 2020…10
Tackling This Crisis is a Massive and Urgent Problem, and Psychedelic Infusions Could Be a Vital Part of This Solution...
The company was founded and is led by top-level Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist Kathryn Walker. Under her leadership, Revitalist has built an unparalleled team of highly-experienced masters, doctorate level therapists, and board-certified nurse anesthesiologists to deliver an array of psychedelic-related infusions (and more).
Right now, Revitalist has been running its flagship clinic in Knoxville, Tennessee since early 2018…
And over the years, the team has honed and refined the operational model….
So much so that this single clinic generated C$1.3 million in revenue for 2020 alone.
To put that into perspective, Field Trip Health – a listed competitor with a market cap of over C$200 million that also operates psychedelic therapy-focused clinics – generated C$434,220 in revenues for the 9 months ending December 31, 202011….
And that’s the total for its four clinics…
Meaning each clinic made an average annual revenue of C$144,740 – about nine times less than Revitalist Lifestyle and Wellness.
Giving it a very real chance at becoming THE name in America when it comes to what is known as “psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy” clinics…
A market that investment bank Stifel Financial estimates could be worth $10 to $11 billion in the US alone.12
8 Reasons Why Revitalist Lifestyle and Wellness (CSE:CALM) Could Become the Top Name in the $10+ Billion Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy Clinical Market
- Proven Clinical Model: Thanks to a combination of patient environment, range of services, highly-trained staff, and insurance coverage, the company’s flagship has generated almost nine times the annual revenue of its closest competitor for 2020.
- An Aggressive but Targeted Expansion Strategy: With a “gold standard” clinical model in hand, the company is set to roll out its model throughout the continent. Its initial goal? 20 clinics by end-2021, 60 by end-2022, and 120 by end-2023. And that’s a conservative target.
- A “Secret Marketing Tool” in Neurovo: Neurovo’s parent company owns and manages over 1,000 digital assets globally, and will soon be responsible for controlling more internet traffic around the clinical use of psychedelic therapies than any other entity. The best part? It is a big stakeholder in Revitalist Lifestyle and Wellness (CSE:CALM). Neurovo will lead all marketing, brand awareness, and lead generation efforts for Revitalist.
- A Highly Skilled and Experienced Management Team: Founder Kathryn Walker was a sought-after consultant for other psychedelic clinics, educating them on the clinical “best practices” to follow. The team itself has over 30 years of combined experience.
- A Roadmap Toward 100% Insurance Coverage: Although psychedelic infusions are currently not directly covered by insurance reimbursements, the company’s itemized documentation billing process allows patients to claim as much as 70% of total costs from their insurance. It has recently hired insurance experts to increase this percentage even further.
- Reimbursement Approval from Veteran Affairs: The company recently received Veteran Affairs license approval for reimbursement, which applies to all US states. In 2018 alone, 1.7 million veterans received treatment for a mental health condition in a VA mental health specialty program, making this a significant growth catalyst for the company.
- A 100% In-house Solution That Helps Avoid Potential Abuse: To mitigate any chance that the psychedelics therapies will be abused, everything is done in-house. Patients are also provided a mood monitoring app to ensure continuity of care.
- A Strong Network of Memberships and Affiliations: Revitalist (CSE:CALM) and its team are already members or affiliates of reputed organizations like the National Association of Social Workers and the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists. It also provides mental health services to veterans and underserved populations through the non-profit organization Community Change Tennessee.
The Pace of Pro-Psychedelics Regulatory Reforms is Accelerating
Not many know this, but Special K was first approved by the FDA in 1970 for anesthetic uses…14
And it has been quietly used in hospitals throughout the country in an “off label” fashion since (about 20% of all medications are used this way).
But its potential in alleviating symptoms of mental health conditions only came to light in the early 1990s, thanks to an “accidental discovery” by Yale researchers…
Where they saw that chronically depressed patients had almost immediate relief after taking this particular psychedelic.15
And in recent years, as the evidence for the effectiveness of this psychedelic in addressing mental health disorders has continued to mount…
The pace of psychedelic-friendly regulations has also been accelerating.
In March 2019, the FDA approved a psychedelic-derived nasal spray for treatment-resistant depression.16 In August 2020, the FDA then approved the nasal spray for suicidal ideation.17
Since then, script sales of the nasal spray have registered exponential growth…
Even though they are only available through clinics registered under the FDA’s Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) system – such as Revitalist Lifestyle and Wellness (CSE:CALM).
The FDA has also granted “breakthrough therapy” status to two psilocybin (magic mushrooms) substances, significantly speeding up the development and review process.18
All these point to the FDA taking a more open-minded stance toward the use of psychedelics in helping with mental health disorders.
Couple this with the public’s increasing awareness of both the growing mental health crisis and how “conventional” treatment options are scarily inadequate…
And it’s no surprise that….

Investors are so enthusiastic about this market that many of Revitalist competitors are trading at valuations hundreds of times compared to their revenues…
With the exception of Novamind, which already has a large clinical network, the revenues from Revitalist Lifestyle and Wellness’s single clinic already trumps the competition.
And yet, despite their incredible price-to-sales ratios, investors continue to pour money into their stocks…
- On March 15, 2021, Numinus Wellness closed a C$30 million public offering at a C$1.25 share price21…
- And earlier, on February 26, 2021, Field Trip Health upsized its “bought deal” public offering from C$50 million to almost C$83 million at a price of C$6.50 per share.22
What does all of this mean? It means that Revitalist Lifestyle and Wellness (CSE:CALMCSE:CALM) could be an exciting opportunity that could potentially have the greatest room for growth ahead of it, especially once…
Revitalist Begins to Execute Its Aggressive Yet Highly-Targeted Expansion Plan
Thanks to its experience with its flagship clinic, Revitalist already knows exactly what it will take to get a clinic running and making a profit.
It has a three-phase “COP” model that could see new clinics break even within two to three months of opening on the way to generating C$1 to C$2 million in annual revenues…
And with its plan to operate 120 clinics by end-2023, Revitalist on a growth path resembling a hockey stick.
Even better, the company has a “secret tool” up its sleeve that can significantly de-risk its ambitious expansion plan…
Neurovo – The Company’s Secret Market Intelligence and Lead Generation Tool
Public perception and competition are the two main risks when it comes to scaling novel solutions like psychedelic therapy.
Is the market ready to accept this solution? And if so, can it beat the competition?
After all, just because Revitalist Lifestyle and Wellness (CSE:CALMCSE:CALM) flagship clinic has proven itself to perform far above its competition is no guarantee that the hundred other planned clinics will enjoy the same success…
That’s where Neurovo – which owns a large stake in the company – comes in.
Because of the sheer quantity of digital assets and psychedelic-related internet traffic it controls, Neurovo can provide:
- Detailed data on each city’s level of market awareness of psychedelic therapies, including how receptive they would likely be
In other words, Neurovo will provide Revitalist with unparalleled market intelligence, allowing it to make the most optimal decisions about which markets to enter.
But that’s not all…
Acting like a perpetual “traffic engine” that will continually drive interest for the company’s clinics…
Giving it a practically unbeatable marketing edge.
Combine this with the proven success of Revitalist’s flagship clinic…
And Revitalist is looking like a fast-growing company that has real potential to become the dominant player in the $10+ billion psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy clinic market.
But beyond just the potential, Revitalist could also…
Give Real Help to the Millions of People That Need It Most Right NOW
Massive fiscal and monetary stimulus are slowly helping revitalize the economy…
And while this will have knock-on effects on the mental health landscape, much more needs to be done.
Even before the worldwide illnesses, suicide was the second leading cause of death in the US for people between 10 and 34 years old, and the tenth leading cause of death overall.23
The CDC reports that 1 in 4 young adults have struggled with suicidal thoughts since the health crisis hit24…
Overdose deaths are accelerating, making the already-bad substance abuse outbreak worse25…
A Gartner survey found that 29% of employees said they were depressed as a result of the health crisis26…
While a survey by the Wounded Warrior project discovered that 30% of veterans reported having suicidal thoughts within the past two weeks, with about the same number having trouble getting access to proper mental health care.27
The veterans most likely to contemplate suicide also had issues with alcohol abuse, PTSD, and depression, and these conditions are exacerbated by the forced social isolation of the health crisis.28 29 Psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy can help alleviate symptoms associated with these conditions – which is exactly why companies like Revitalist Lifestyle and Wellness (CSE:CALMCSE:CALM) are so important right now.
Revitalist’s Vision – An Urgent Care Alternative to Help Tackle the Growing Mental Health Crisis
With hospitals and ERs being even more overcrowded than normal, as well as depression and suicide rates on the rise…
Revitalist envisions its clinics as becoming the premier “urgent care alternative” for mental health conditions.
60% of its current clients have suicidal ideation, and the youngest patient it has worked with was just 12 years old – highlighting just how urgent the situation has become.
But unlike the cold, clinical, and institutional settings that have become synonymous with psychiatric facilities…
Revitalist Lifestyle and Wellness (CSE:CALM) prides itself on providing a spa-like, patient-centric environment…
Where its qualified clinicians spend anywhere from one to five hours with each patient (compared to the typical 7 to 11 minutes for a conventional psychiatrist).
Which is why it also counts among its clients C-Suite executives who gladly travel from different states to its flagship clinic…
Where, in addition to psychedelic therapy, they can also enjoy other services such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), vitamin infusions, acupuncture, and other wellness services.
In a nutshell, Revitalist gives you the “best of both worlds”…
The company is also a big player in helping the community through its Community Change charitable 501c(3) nonprofit organization, which aims to provide accessibility to life-saving services for those suffering from treatment-resistant conditions of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and psychological nature. In particular, Community Change focuses on veterans, first responders, underserved populations, and those with limited financial resources.
A Shot at Huge Growth Potential AND the Opportunity to Make a Real Difference in Solving Our Country’s Mental Health Crisis
The company’s vision is indeed ambitious.
But with a proven clinical model, a powerful marketing edge from Neurovo, and a highly experienced management team “leading from the front”…
Revitalist stands ready to become THE name in a $10+ billion market – and help hundreds of thousands of people at the same time.
