The 30-year-old attempted a psychedelic trip during a manic episode. Mushrooms that contain psilocybin are meant to be eaten, not injected.
It seems super illogical to me but maybe in his manic state he was so passionate about getting better he thought by injecting it it would be more pure. He probably should have tried drinking the tea first I think he would realized the effects. Or maybe he did start drinking the tea and they didn’t hit fast enough so he thought injecting would be more effective.
Either way I thank this man for his contribution to science.
wow! I wonder what his intent was with injecting. A higher, more concentrated does? A faster reaction? Either way hope they get better. Also, I hope that the research around opioid addiction / use + psilocybin conts. and is proved effective in a manner that allows wide spread availability to those who need or want it in a safe manner.
