Jaden Smith, the younger son of the famous Hollywood duo Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, recently opened up about a unique aspect of his family’s personal life—the use of psychedelic pills. During his appearance at the Psychedelic Science conference held in Denver, Colorado, Jaden revealed intriguing details.
According to Jaden, his mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, initially introduced the family to this unconventional practice. Initially, it was a personal pursuit for her, but over time, it became a natural and shared experience for everyone in the family.
In discussing the impact of psychedelics on their family dynamics, the 24-year-old artist described how these substances had fostered love and empathy among his siblings. Despite their occasional heated arguments, Jaden emphasized his profound and beautiful connection with his brothers and sisters during psychedelic experiences.
It is important to note that the use of psychedelic substances remains largely illegal across the United States. Only two states, namely Oregon and Colorado, have decriminalized these substances, with Colorado even legalizing the recreational use of mushrooms.
Jada Pinkett Smith has also been vocal about her mental health struggles, revealing that “plant medicine” has played a significant role in her personal journey. During a previous episode of the Red Table Talk in 2021, she acknowledged her long-standing battle with d*pression and expressed how medicinal plants have aided her recovery by addressing the root causes of her emotional distress.
However, Jada cautioned that individuals seeking to explore this avenue for their own well-being should consult with professionals. She emphasized that this path requires genuine commitment and is not to be taken lightly. The healing potential of these substances can be transformative, as it has been for her own life, but it necessitates a willingness to face challenging experiences.
