Mike Tyson‘s appearance on Logan Paul‘s podcast was a wild one, with the boxing legend eating a handful of mushrooms at the start of the episode.
Avid marijuana enthusiast Tyson was smoking joint to begin with but then followed it up by casually chewing through around four or five grams of mushrooms he was handed by ‘imPaulsive’ co-host Mike Majlak.
It was literally five minutes into the podcast and ‘Iron Mike’ shoved in far more than the usual intake for your average joe and didn’t even stop to drink some water.
When discussion turned to the potential further legality for mushrooms, Tyson said he believes “it’s going to be the best thing in the 21st century and taking them “helps me be a better me”.
He then confirmed he trains after taking mushrooms and may have taken some a few days before he returned to the ring for the first time in 15 years in an exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr last month.
The 54-year-old then begun to discuss other psychedelic drugs such as ‘DMT’ and ‘Changa’ and his experiences dabbling into those substances.
In fact, he’s gone on record to state that it was his consuming of a psychedelic ‘named ‘The Toad’, extracted from a rare species of toad from the Sonoran desert in America, that led to his incredible weight loss and subsequent boxing comeback.
