Media Central Corporation Inc. (CSE: FLYY) today announced that its wholly owned property Canncentral.com will provide ongoing coverage of the burgeoning psychedelics sector. Canncentral is a digital magazine dedicated to covering the latest in cannabis news and lifestyle and is an authoritative voice in the complementary wellness market. Canncentral's psychedelics reporting will focus on the wide range of therapeutic and medical applications as well as business news, trends and legislative changes in the rapidly emerging area.
"The world of psychedelics is a natural extension of the content we produce at Canncentral," said Brian Kalish, CEO of MediaCentral. "Our 6.5 million audience of engaged influential readers have their fingers on the pulse of emerging trends and are eager to consume up-to-date information from our award-winning editorial teams. Early signs point to the huge impact that psychedelics will have on society from a cultural, medical and business perspective. This focus on psychedelics is a natural progression of our ongoing strategy to leverage our considerable audience and capitalize on the latest in material trends as we move to further monetize our titles."
A recent study by Data Bridge Market Research indicates the psychedelics market is experiencing a compound annual growth rate of approximately 16%.

As a result, many analysts have forecasted the potential of the psychedelics market to outpace cannabis as an investment class.
Canncentral will provide regular coverage on all things psychedelics and will distribute stories omnichannel to its growing audience through its own platform and MediaCentral's other titles including NOW Magazine in Toronto and Georgia Straight in Vancouver. Content around psychedelics will be integrated across the Company's full spectrum of three digital platforms, two print publications, three newsletters and nine social media channels accounting for nearly a million total followers.
