Aaron Rodgers says psychedelics helped improve mental health and rejuvenate his career.

quote:

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers revealed on the Aubrey Marcus Podcast that he consumed ayahuasca prior to his back-to-back MVP seasons, crediting the plant-based psychedelic for helping produce two of the best seasons of his career thanks to a change in mindset and improvement of his mental health.

"I don't think it's a coincidence," Rodgers said about winning his third and fourth MVPs in 2020 and 2021 following an ayahuasca experience in South America. "I really don't. I don't really believe in coincidences at this point. It's the universe bringing things to happen when they're supposed to happen.

quote:

"For me, I didn't do that and think 'oh, I'm never playing football again,'" Rodgers said. "No, it gave me a deep and meaningful appreciation for life. My intention the first night going in was 'I want to feel what pure love feels like.' That was my intention. And I did. I really did. I had a magical experience with the sensation of feeling a hundred different hands on my body imparting a blessing of love and forgiveness for myself and gratitude for this life from what seemed to be my ancestors."

The experience, Rodgers said, "set me on my course to be able to go back in to my job and have a different perspective on things. To be way more free at work, as a leader, as a teammate, as a friend, as a lover. I really feel like that experience paved the way for me to have the best season of my career (in 2020)."

It's like 2 g's to just drink the stuff and it lasts 6 hours.

Goddamn Aaron just go get some fricking shrooms and make some tea.

Fwiw more and more actual psychiatrists are using psychedelics.

That’s like the back alley abortion description of an ayahuasca experience. I’m sure he did the real thing with a shaman guiding you which lasts several rounds over a few days

I bet he had to dig in the couch cushions for a good while. Just gave him a deeper appreciation for the experience.

Is there a test for this? It would seem that a few more specimen samples are in his future.

I say all the time that some really good shrooms or lsd with a calm rational "guide" to stay with you would be a great way to deal with PTSD, depression, anxiety, trauma etc

Really will change your mental outlook and can provide healing....the problem is, it can also cause you to eat your arm and jump out of a building.

Pretty good documentary just dropped on Netflix that covers all this and the therapeutic uses of MDMA, Peyote, Shrooms, and LSD. Really interesting watch.

Those are all a lot closer to deschedulization/decriminalization than people realize

Oregon State is currently leading the way for the use of psilocybin for depression, particularly in treatment resistant depression.

Rodgers might sound a little kooky about it, but as said there’s growing evidence that substances when utilized safely can help.

Oregon to use it therapeutically after decriminalization

I wish I could feel comfortable enough to try some of these types of things, but I get super depressed after 30mgs of pot.
