As people around the world seek ways to cope with the unique intensity that is the 21st century, Double Blind has seen the emergence of new and old solutions. Nowhere is that reflected more than in the psychedelic movement. In this issue, Double Blind highlights many of the solutions being put forth, from disrupting capitalism to, simply, spending more time with trees. Dr. Bennet Zelner, Associate Professor of Business and Public Policy at the University of Maryland, prompts us to consider what an equitable psychedelic pharma might actually look like (and whether that’s even possible); reporter Ben Adlin investigates the US military’s $27 million psychedelic research program; and DB cofounder Madison Margolin takes us deep into the underground scene of Hasidic Jews, finding catharsis through tripping and praying—at the same time. Double Blind also goes to Gabon, where Cameroonian poachers are overharvesting Iboga amid a rising demand for Ibogaine, and to an island off of British Columbia, where writer Mercedes Grant encourages us to make space in our lives for grief. The overarching theme is that we’re at a moment that’s calling us inward, to reflect on who we want to be and how we want to show up as the psychedelic “industry” grows.
Double Blind magazine covers timely, untold stories about the expansion of psychedelics around the globe.
We’re all blind in some ways—blind to our biases, blind to our needs, blind to our habits. That’s what good journalism is for—not for reaffirming our beliefs, but for challenging us to consider new ones that are based on facts.
Double Blind speaks to everyone who is curious about psychedelics. The magazine speaks to anyone craving fresh perspectives on some of the most important issues of our time: the depression epidemic, the corporatization of medicine, and the aching that people around the globe feel for spirituality or some other collective sense of meaning. Double Blind is a dive deep below the surface of the daily news cycle through long-form reported features, poetry, visual art, and provocative photo essays.
