The ‘toad’ is Bufo alvarius, a Mexico amphibian, otherwise known as the Sonoran Desert Toad, and spends seven months each year living underground.

When it is active, its venom can be smoked to produce a short psychoactive trip and has long been used in traditional healing rituals.

He told The Post at Wonderland: “I ‘died’ during my first trip. In my trips I’ve seen that death is beautiful.

“The toad has taught me that I’m not going to be here forever. There’s an expiration date.”

“It’s another dimension. Before I did the toad, I was a wreck. The toughest opponent I ever faced was myself.
