Psychedelic toads: What to Know

Trippy: 'Bufo toad', commonly known as Colorado river toad or the Sonoran desert toad, secretes a substance that can be used to achieve a psychedelic high

Trippy: ‘Bufo toad’, commonly known as Colorado river toad or the Sonoran desert toad, secretes a substance that can be used to achieve a psychedelic high

‘Bufo toad’ is commonly known as Colorado river toad or the Sonoran desert toad and is found across northern Mexico and the southwestern United States.

The animal secretes a powerful venom which contains the psychotropic compound 5-MeO-DMT, a chemical which induces a high with ‘warm sensation, euphoria, and strong visual and auditory hallucinations’ 

The secretion also contains the chemical bufotenin, which also occurs in some plants and mushrooms.

Bufotenin has been outlawed in California since 1970. It is also illegal to possess Colorado river toads in several states.

Smoking toad recently received an endorsement from celeb Mike Tyson, telling GQ it made him feel ‘like you die and you’re reborn.’

The mother-of-three shares daughter Taylor, 10, and and son Brayden, five, with ex-husband Tarek El Moussa, 39; and son Hudson, one, with ex-husband Wheeler Dealers star Ant Anstead, 42.

The Flip Or Flop beauty, citing irreconcilable differences, filed for divorce from last year from Anstead, who has since entered into a relationship with Oscar-winning actress Renee Zellweger, 52. 

El Moussa has since gone on to a romance with Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young, 33, as the pair are engaged. 

Haack recently opened up on Instagram about how she had made acquaintance with her new beau after a recharging phase in which she ‘had taken time off social, hired a spiritual coach and smoked a Bufo toad.’

Bufo toad, which is also known as toad venom, contains secretions of bufotenine and 5-MeO-DMT, according to the National Library of Medicine, which are ‘two substances known for their psychedelic properties.’

According to the library, some of its ‘users say inhaling the vapors of the toad’s secretion helps ease feelings of depression and stress,’ and they are ‘are considered controlled substances by the Drug Enforcement Administration.’ 

The substance, which is also referred to as the Colorado river toad or the Sonoran desert toad, is most common in areas of Mexico and the U.S. Southwest. It has been illegal in California dating back to 1970, and outlawed in multiple U.S. states.

Haack added in an Instagram post that when they met this past spring, their ‘synchronicities hit us so hard and fast they were impossible to ignore’ and that she ‘felt immediately crazy protective over him and wanted to keep him for myself and get to know each other before’ the media caught on.

Haack said she and Hall have ‘a few solid months of just us getting to know each other’ and she has ‘loved every second of it.’

She added of Hall: ‘I want to thank him for whisking me away on a romantic tropical vacation he planned entirely on his own.’
