Delic Holdings Corp (“Delic” or the “Company”) (CSE: DELC) (OTCQB: DELCF) (FRA: 6X0) (original source), the leading psychedelic wellness platform, today announced that two-time NBA champion Lamar Odom will headline Meet Delic on November 7. Odom’s professional basketball career spanned 15 years, including seven as a forward with the Los Angeles Lakers, earning him NBA championships in 2009 and 2010. He joined LeBron James, Allen Iverson, Tim Duncan and Dwayne Wade as members of the gold-winning U.S. men’s basketball team at the 2004 Athens Olympics.
In 2015 Odom was hospitalized in Las Vegas after a near-death overdose that resulted in multiple seizures, strokes and a coma. The upcoming documentary Lamar Odom Reborn chronicles his life, from past traumas and struggles with anxiety and substance abuse to his recovery and healing through psychedelic treatments, meditation and breathwork. Odom’s keynote “Fireside Chat: Lamar Odom & Zappy Zapolin: Reborn” will reunite him with the documentary’s director for an intimate discussion of his healing journey with psychedelic medicine and a preview of the film.
“We’re so honored Lamar will be sharing his personal story of healing with all of us at Meet Delic,” said Jackee Stang, co-founder of Delic. “He has shown tremendous courage facing his past traumas and addiction, and his openness to exploring psychedelic treatments is inspiring. We hope his story will open the hearts and minds of more people so we can truly address the growing mental health crisis we’re facing.”
Meet Delic is committed to bringing awareness of the science-backed benefits of psychedelics and business opportunities to the mainstream and larger global community by reframing the psychedelic conversation. The experiential event will feature dancers, music, 3D-mapping, visual artists, new technologies and research, thought-provoking presentations and one of the world’s largest psychedelic business expo. The full lineup of keynote speakers and panelists can be found here.
The twenty hours of panels and keynotes will include an array of topics such as “Why Are Psychedelics Medicine?“, “How Big Money is (Already) Playing Psychedelics,” “PTSD Reset and Recovery,” “Psychedelics & Addiction: an Intimate Discussion on Recovery in a Modern World,” “Ketamine Clinics Today, Psilocybin and MDMA Therapy Tomorrow,” “Microdosing,” “Psychedelic Activism,” “Aphrodisiacs and Psychedelics: A History of Medicine for Love“, “How Psychedelics Can be Effectively Used for Physical Optimization,” and “Drug Use for Grown-Ups.” Musical and entertainment acts are scheduled both evenings following the panels and expo.
