‘I would love to be a guinea pig!’: Mike Tyson puts his name forward for a new psychedelic drug trial… claiming he’s eager to test out the ‘new technology’ which injects a hallucinogenic ‘straight into the bloodstream’

  • Mike Tyson, 56, has said he would ‘love’ to be a ‘guinea pig’ in the new drug trial 
  • The former boxing champion would like to try a psychedelic drug called DMTX
  • Tyson is keen on testing out the new ‘technology which ‘delivers DMT by drip’
  • The drug is injected ‘straight into the bloodstream and last for about an hour’

Mike Tyson has said he would ‘love’ to be a ‘guinea pig’ in the new trial for a psychedelic drug called DMTX. 

The former heavyweight boxing champion-turned cannabis entrepreneur has said he would be interested in testing out the new ‘technology which ‘delivers DMT by drip to volunteers’. 

Tyson put his name forward for the new drug, which is injected ‘straight into the bloodstream and last for an hour, while speaking to British expert and author Graham Hancock.

Speaking to Hancock, Tyson said: ‘It’s not been widely publicised yet but it’s called DMTX. As you know DMT is a quick journey, it’s 12, 15 minute journey. A rocket ship to the other side of reality.

‘They have found a technology to basically deliver DMT by drip to volunteers. And those volunteers are making extended journeys in the DMT realm. They are coming back with the same observations.’

Tyson – who became the first heavyweight to hold the WBA, WBC and IBF belts and later became the lineal champion, before retiring from boxing after losing his last fight, to Kevin McBride in 2005 – said: ‘I want to do that one, the drip.’

Hancock went on to add: ‘It’s like they are mapping another world. It doesn’t wear off, it goes straight into the bloodstream and doesn’t wear off. And it lasts for about an hour.’

While speaking on The Fighter and The Writer podcast, Tyson asked: ‘How do I get that stuff?’. 

Hancock replied: ‘You talk to Imperial college in London, I think they might be very interested in talking to you.’

The former American boxer responded by saying: ‘I could be one of those guinea pigs. I would love to be a guinea pig for that.’

N,N-Dymethyltriptamine (DMT) is one of the world’s most powerful known hallucinogens.

Similar to drugs like LSD and psilocybin, DMT has demonstrated its ability to increase connectivity between different brain networks and boost synaptic plasticity.

When taken in conjunction with traditional therapy, many mental health experts and researchers believe patients can overcome emotional issues that have not been helped by other types of medicine such as SSRIs.

However, substances such as Ayahuasca – which a psychedelic drink enjoyed by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers – have been linked with side effects. 

In the latest study, published in the journal PLOS Global Public Health, scientists found that the majority of participants faced negative physical or mental effects.

The scientists found that the most common side effect was vomiting, which affected 62 per cent of people involved.

Hearing or seeing things that others couldn’t was the second most common side effect with 28 per cent. And 21 per cent said they felt disconnected or alone.

Other side effects reported included nightmares (19 per cent), visual distortions (15 per cent) and difficulty determining reality (13 per cent).

Nearly one in five participants also said they faced a headache after drinking Ayahuasca, while up to four per cent said they fainted or suffered seizures.

Tyson, the 56-year-old former heavyweight boxing champion-turned cannabis entrepreneur, claimed marijuana and magic mushrooms helped him end his wild lifestyle and find God.

Tyson also revealed in 2021 that he had used toad venom – which is an illegal Schedule 1 substance in the United States – a total of 53 times in the last four years.
