Haack previously opened up about her experience with the unusual substance as she reflected on her journey to meeting her new boyfriend.

"I met Josh when I wasn't in a state of fear or fight-or-flight … I had taken time off social, hired a spiritual coach and smoked a Bufo toad," Haack shared on Thursday, adding that it "basically reset my brain and kicked out years of anxiety in 15 mins."

Commonly known as toad venom, the secretion of Bufo Alvarius toads contains bufotenine and 5-MeO-DMT, two substances known for their psychedelic properties. While some users say inhaling the vapors of the toad's secretion helps ease feelings of depression and stress, bufotenine and 5-MeO-DMT are considered controlled substances by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
