About The Third Wave
The 1st Wave was indigenous use of psychedelics for thousands of years.
The 2nd Wave was the use of psychedelics during the counter-culture of the 60s and 70s.
The 3rd Wave is upon us now. Brought about by recent developments in cannabis legalization and psychedelic research – and it will change the way mainstream culture perceives psychedelic use.
To find out more about The Third Wave, read our manifesto. It details everything you need to know about responsible psychedelic use in the 21st century.
Our mission at The Third Wave is to change the way in which mainstream culture perceives psychedelic substances.
The Third Wave is a new era of psychedelic use.
It is an era of psychedelic use defined by practical, measured use for specific purposes.
It is an era, not for ‘dropping-out’ and rebelling against society, but for integrating psychedelics into our mainstream culture.
It is an era, not to fear psychedelics for their possible negative repercussions, but to embrace psychedelics for their tremendous upside.
Here at The Third Wave, we plan to contribute to this new era by providing reliable, well-researched information about psychedelics; incubating online and in-person psychedelic community; and working within mainstream culture through constructive conversations with thought-leaders across all major fields and disciplines.
