WELCOME TO THIRD WAVE
A GLOBAL LEADER FOR PSYCHEDELIC EDUCATION, TRAINING, AND COMMUNITY
The first wave of psychedelics saw indigenous communities around the globe using plant medicines for thousands of years in sacred ceremonies to heal and connect with the divine.
The second wave began with the invention of LSD in 1938. This led to a burst of compelling research and spurred the counterculture of the ‘60s. It ended suddenly when the US government made all psychedelics illegal.
This is the Third Wave.
Our emerging psychedelic renaissance is not about “dropping out” or rejecting mainstream culture.
It’s about integrating intentional, measured, and responsible psychedelic use into our everyday lives.
It’s about paying tribute to the cultures that paved the path while working towards a future where psychedelics are decriminalized and respected. It’s a time to fuse ancient wisdom with modern-day science to spur transformation and healing—individually, collectively, and in society at large.
To achieve this goal, there is a coordinated grassroots effort that includes research, clinical development, education, culture, and the incubation of psychedelic community. Together, step by step, we can shift perceptions, allay fears, and create the space to change hearts and minds.
Third Wave’s mission is to provide a trusted and reputable resource for intentional, responsible psychedelic use.
We do that by sharing research-based content and training that helps you feel safe, supported, and empowered as you follow your path towards personal transformation with psychedelics.
OUR VISION IS SIMPLE:
Cultural Awakening Through Personal Transformation
We are here to co-create a global movement that embraces psychedelic use as a way to heal ourselves and our world.
Third Wave is playing its part by building a cohesive platform that meets individual needs, offers guided support, and connects seekers to high-quality resources and providers across our global ecosystem.
This psychedelic renaissance is evolving rapidly.
Keep up with all the exciting changes,
Because of the importance of trust and accountability, Third Wave is established as a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC). As a PBC, we can balance our need to scale through profits with our vision to bring about meaningful change. As part of this commitment, we’re reinvesting capital to advance research and activism in the psychedelic wellness space.
