The star-studded Netflix documentary ‘Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics’ featuring real stories of celebrities’ psychedelic drugs experiences came out in 2020, revealing that more famous faces have tripped than you might have assumed.
The documentary is equal parts hilarious and educational, as it explores the history and cultural impact of psychedelics, how they can be used to treat anxiety, depression, and PTSD, as well as tips and tales from stars recounting their good and bad trips.
Since then, more celebrities feel comfortable speaking openly about their experiences with psychedelics without so much stigma and risk to their reputations. Kristen Bell recently revealed that she tried magic mushrooms during an interview on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' "I had never really done any drugs and I wanted to try mushrooms for my 40th birthday," she explained. "So my husband got them for me and I tried it. And we told our kids about it." While Kristen Bell isn't the first celebrity you'd peg as a psychonaut, the decision to share her experience with her young children was what got people talking. Bell and her husband, Dax Shepard, have always stated their belief that honesty is the best policy for their kids. Apparently, it was all going fine, until Bell overheard her daughter telling her conservative grandmother all about it!
