Boxer Jake Paul has claimed in an interview with FOX that he took the psychedelic drug ayahuasca with the Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. 

Speaking candidly about his relationship with Rodgers, the boxer said that he and Rodgers spent a week taking ayahuasca allegedly for “spirituality and reflecting.”

“Aaron and I were actually together when we did the ayahuasca,” Paul said. “He’s more publicly known for speaking about it, but I was actually there with him when we did it.”

“We spent the week there doing it. Definitely share that similarity in terms of spirituality and reflecting and going into the deepest parts of the mind. Definitely have been doing some of that,” he added.

Paul then went on to talk about how he liked the idea of a darkness retreat like Rodgers took earlier in 2023. Rodgers’ next move is set to be the biggest trading story in the NFL. 

The quarterback has spent his entire career with the Green Bay Packers since being drafted in 2005, but now, in a high-profile move, he could be all set to join the New York Jets in the ongoing free agency.

His retreat in Oregon was to decide between whether to play on or to retire, and in case of the former, whether to do it for the Packers or join the Jets, who reportedly are very keen to take in the Packers MVP.   

What is Ayahuasca?

Ayahuasca is a psychedelic brew made from the ayahuasca vine (Banisteriopsis caapi) and other plant ingredients. The brew has been used for centuries by indigenous communities in the Amazon basin for spiritual and medicinal purposes. 

Ayahuasca contains a psychoactive compound called DMT (dimethyltryptamine), which is a powerful hallucinogen that can produce profound alterations in consciousness, including visual and auditory hallucinations, emotional and sensory experiences, and spiritual insights.
