Mike Tyson says he ‘died’ while tripping on psychedelic toad venom

Mike Tyson has faced off against some fierce fighters during his storied boxing career, but his toughest opponent might have been a dose of psychedelic toad venom.

The 55-year-old former heavyweight boxing champion said he “died” while using toad venom for the first time.

“In my trips I’ve seen that death is beautiful. Life and death both have to be beautiful, but death has a bad rep. The toad has taught me that I’m not going to be here forever. There’s an expiration date,” Tyson told The New York Post at Wonderland, a Miami conference dedicated to psychedelics, microdosing and medicine.

The “toad” is Bufo alvarius, a Mexico amphibian otherwise known as the Sonoran Desert Toad. For seven months of the year, it hibernates underground, but when it’s active, its venom can be smoked to create a short psychoactive experience.

Tyson said he tried it for the first time four years ago when he was 100 pounds overweight, drinking and doing drugs. One of his friends suggested he try toad venom and Tyson apparently loved it.
