We’re beginning to learn more about Aaron Rodgers’ use of psychedelics.

On Wednesday, the Packers superstar QB revealed to Aubrey Marcus that he uses ayahuasca, a psychoactive tea containing the hallucinogenic drug DMT, that has helped his mental health.

“To me, one of the core tenets of your mental health is that self-love, and that’s what ayahuasca did for me,” Rodgers told Aubrey Marcus. “[It showed me] how to unconditionally love myself.”

Rodgers says he experienced the best day of his life when he did ayahuasca with his ex-girlfriend Danica Patrick for the first time in Peru when they were together.

“I was dating Danica [at the time Rodgers met Marcus] and that relationship was great for me because she is on her own journey, and spirituality is important to her,” said Rodgers, who also recalled “the best day of his life” when he did mushrooms on a beach with friends.

“We both were finding our way, learning about different things, practicing meditation techniques.”

“My intention the first night going in was I want to feel what pure love is. That was my intention and I did. I really did,” Rodgers said. “I had a magical experience with the sensation of feeling 100 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. I came back and the pandemic hit.”
