"I never thought of MDMA as a psychedelic and when I took it, I didn't hallucinate," Paltrow said.

"It wasn't a rave, it was actually very, very emotional and I was with my then-boyfriend, who's now my husband, and he's a very empathetic, very profoundly wise person and he was able to help me through it," she continued. "It does make me think there's so much to unearth if I did it [for therapy purposes]." has more details about the show:

Set to premiere on Netflix on Friday, Jan. 24, The Goop Lab is a "curiosity-driven exploration of boundary-pushing wellness topics," including energy healing, psychic mediums, psychedelics, sexual health and more. The six-episode series, presented by Paltrow’s lifestyle site Goop, is already generating plenty of talk ahead of its premiere, including some criticism from healthcare professionals.

The show has received some backlash from critics, including OB/GYN and author Dr. Jen Gunter, M.D.

"I think I have watched it twice and can't stomach a third time, so I can't give you a frame-by-frame takedown," Gunter said to Bustle. "This looks like classic Goop: some fine information presented alongside unscientific, unproven, potentially harmful therapies for attention, with the disclaimer of 'We're only having conversations!’"

"When you sell products, that means you are not a reliable source of information," Gunter added. "Goop sells supplements and other quasi-medical products, gives vaccine-hesitant doctors a platform, and actively promotes 'mediums', so they cannot provide unbiased information about these topics.'

The premiere of the show is coming on the heels of news that Paltrow's new candle that smells like her vagina has completely sold out
