Aaron Rodgers, the NFL’s most valuable player in 2011 and current Green Bay Packers quarterback, is a big fan of psychedelics. In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, he spoke about his use of LSD and psilocybin mushrooms, saying that they had helped him “connect with something bigger than myself.”
Rodgers isn’t the only professional athlete who has spoken about the benefits of psychedelics. NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony told GQ magazine that he had used MDMA to help cope with the death of his sister. And several pro golfers, including Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, have credited psychedelic mushrooms for their successful careers.
Psychedelics have also been shown to be effective in treating a variety of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In a recent study, psilocybin was found to be more effective than traditional antidepressants in treating treatment-resistant depression.
So it’s no surprise that more and more people are interested in psychedelics. If you’re considering trying psychedelics, it’s important to do your research and choose a reputable source. Start with a trusted friend or family member who has had a positive experience with psychedelics. Or look for a professional provider who can offer guidance and support.
