Former ‘Los Angeles Lakers’ star Lamar Odom is opening up about his decision to use powerful psychedelics to treat his long-term drug addiction.
The NBA all-star sat down with ‘The Megan Pormer Show’ on FOX LA in a bombshell new interview to discuss a wide range of topics, including his use of the powerful drug, Ibogaine. As you know, Odom has struggled with substance abuse for the past few years, something that ultimately ended his basketball career.
In the interview, Pormer opened up about her own use of another drug — Ketamine — to treat depression and other ailments. During the discussion, Odom revealed he took Ibogaine that said it was a life-changing decision. Interestingly, Odom confirmed he has also tried Ketamine as a treatment and is currently working on a documentary about his experience.
Lamar described the psychedelic trip as a “healing” experience.
Lamar Odom Takes ‘Grandfather Of Psychedelic Drugs’
“I did experiment with another psychedelic drug, Ibogaine, which is like the grandfather of psychedelic drugs, and I think that’s where I had the most spiritual experience…They say the first person you see is someone really close to you in your family,” Odom said in the interview set up by powerhouse media company FAME By Sheeraz.
He continued, “The first person I saw was my cousin Sierra, who at one time, even though I’m young, my grandma and I helped raise her. Her face was big, it was like this close to me. And then I kept hearing my mother’s voice, my grandmother’s voice, and that was of course extremely spiritual that I got to reconnect with their voices…And then I got to see my son. I got to see him at the age he passed away. I got to see him at the age…8 or 9 years old. And then I got to see him at the age he would be now…Just to see him was enough. It was crazy.”

Ibogaine is a psychedelic drug, that preliminary research indicates reportedly may be able to treat drug addiction. It’s derived from the root of an iboga tree in Central Africa, and ibogaine’s effects have been studied by scientists since the CIA got a hold of it in the 1950s.
During the interview, Odom admitted it was a very “strong, strong” drug which he hoped would stop once he started feeling its effects. But, in the end, he believes it was the ultimate healing experience.
In the end, Lamar discussed the passing of his young son and how he died on the same day as the basketball star’s grandmother. It’s clear the traumatic events weighed heavily on him and pushed him down a dark path.
In the bombshell interview, Lamar also discussed his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian and how he would get together with her in a “heartbeat.” The host pressed Odom on his interaction with the ‘KUWTK’ star’s baby daddy — Tristian Thompson — on Instagram after he commented how beautiful she was in a smoking hot picture of KK. “He doesn’t know me,” LO said and claims the situation could have gotten much worse.
