The psychedelic movement is continuing to expand and grow at rapid speed and, yet, simultaneously we’re seeing an internal call to slow down, to be more intentional. In this issue, Double Blind highlights voices who seek to do that by broadening and complex the conversations we are all having. Yes, psychedelics have shown promise for disrupting our current mental health epidemic, but what might we be missing when that’s our only lens? In this issue, Dr. Andrew Weil encourages us to advocate for and learn about all historically stigmatized plants and fungi, from kava to the coca plant. Musician East Forest puts forth an optimistic and empowering thesis regarding this apocalyptic moment in history. Meanwhile, Alnoor Ladha and Rene Suša challenge the idea that “the psychedelic renaissance” is part of a movement toward an enlightened humanity, rather than a new manifestation of the same harmful tactics that have oppressed marginalized peoples for centuries. In this issue, too, as always, Double Blind seeks to address timely trends within the emerging psychedelic industry, from a new wave of at-home ketamine lozenge companies to churches seeking the federal right to use psychedelics for spiritual reasons.
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.
