FDA issues warning against 'microdosing' chocolate bars that sent 6 to the hospital * 1
    #28806804 - 06/09/24 06:59 PM (11 days, 2 hours ago)

https://www.businessinsider.com/microdosing-chocolate-bar-diamond-shruumz-illness-hospital-2024-6


Eight people in four states fell ill after consuming Diamond Shruumz-brand microdosing chocolate bars, the FDA said on Friday.

Microdosing is the practice of regularly taking a dose of a drug โ€” typically a psychedelic โ€” that is small enough not to feel any effect.

Some people believe microdosing can improve creativity and mental health. It's become trendy in Silicon Valley. And some CEOs say they've added microdosing to their morning routine.

The microdosing industry has boomed in recent years as companies hope to transform drugs like MDMA into approved medicines. Business Insider reported that a "psychedelics renaissance" began sweeping the industry in 2020. Data from Pitchbook said psychedelics companies amassed $163.6 million in investments during the first three quarters of 2020.

While Diamond Shruumz markets its products as microdoses, they don't actually contain any psychedelics. The company sells more than a dozen products, including chocolate bars that come in six flavors. The company's FAQ said its products use a "proprietary blend of natural ingredients."

"There is no presence of psilocybin, amanita, or any scheduled drugs, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience," its website says. "Rest assured, our treats are not only free from psychedelic substances, but our carefully crafted ingredients still offer an experience."

The FDA said people experienced "severe symptoms" after eating the chocolate bars, including seizures, central nervous system depression, nausea, vomiting, agitation, abnormal heart rates, and hyper/hypotension.

All eight who fell ill sought medical care. Six had to be hospitalized, but there were no reported deaths.

"FDA is working to determine the cause of these illnesses and is considering the appropriate next steps. More information will be provided as it becomes available," the news release said.

Representatives for Diamond Shruumz did not respond to Business a request for comment from Business Insider.

The general public has heard about the benefits of microdosing over the years and naturally want to try it. Many are so gullible that they think they are actually microdosing if they consume a product that has the word microdosing and pictures of trippy looking shrooms on the packaging, without bothering to take a look at the ingredients.

This company is just one of dozens that take advantage of uninformed people selling them worthless products that either do nothing or jeopardize their health.

Real neat they tell you what isn't in it.

All these companies are the same to me, snake oil salesmen. Just hoping the public doesn't take these stories at face value when decriminalization measures for psychedelics come up. :rolleyes:

So you're saying there that they are getting by on the loophole that levels are so low, they're beneath the legal level?

LOQ means limit of quantification. The instruments aren't able to accurately register below that concentration in a sample. Even if there was something below that threshold, it would not be enough to get you high.

This companies products have nothing to do with microdosing other than the word microdosing being on the label.

As this news story spreads to news outlets across the country/world, I fear most people will read just the headline and not the article. And as weeks and months go by people will remember the headline only, that the FDA is warning the public against the dangers of microdosing, which is very far from the facts of the article.

Arizona recalls Diamond Shruumz microdosing candies after FDA probe
June 19, 2024 - Phoenix New Times

The state health department said Diamond Shruumz products have led to seizures and ER visits for several people in Arizona.

On Tuesday, the Food and Drug Administration announced an investigation into products from the mushroom microdosing brand Diamond Shruumz, prompting a recall on Wednesday by the Arizona Department of Health Services.

According to both agencies, multiple people in Arizona and nationally have experienced serious adverse health effects after consuming Diamond Shruumz's line of gummies, chocolates and cones. Those effects include "seizures, hallucinations, and loss of consciousness, according to the state health department.

The health department said "patients have required emergency transport, emergency department evaluation, and in some instances, intensive care admission." Additionally, six cases have been reported to Arizona's two poison centers, and similar cases have been identified in other states.

A June 18 FDA advisory said there have been more cases in Arizona (six) than in any other state. Nationally, 26 illnesses have been reported, 16 of which required hospitalization. Notably, a recent University of Virginia study found mushroom-related calls to poison centers have risen since 2019, when some states and cities decriminalized psilocybin mushrooms.

One of those hospitalized was the son of Charity Martinez of Glendale. Martinez told Arizona's Family that after eating a Diamond Shruumz edible purchased from a local smoke shop in April, her son suffered respiratory failure and had to be ventilated and placed in a coma. She added that his heart stopped at one point and that he now has an ongoing heart condition.

Though Diamond Shruumz claims its products do not contain psilocybin, the psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms that is illegal in much of the country, Martinez told Arizona's Family she does not believe that to be true.

โ€œThey lied,โ€ she told the station. โ€œThey did determine at the hospital, they listed it as an overdose to psilocybin or psilocin.โ€

The California-based Diamond Shruums bills itself as "nothing short of the future of microdosing," with treats "packed with a kick of Lionโ€™s mane, a touch of Reishi and a bit of Chaga mushrooms." A disclaimer on its website warns that the FDA has not evaluated its products and that the company cannot guarantee its products are legal in every jurisdiction.

The state health department said consumers should not eat any Diamond Shruums products "until further notice" and should dispose of any such products or return them to the retailer that sold them. It also noted that microdosing products, including Diamond Shruums, are not FDA-approved and that "the ingredients listed may not be accurate."

The FDA said it has been in contact with Diamond Shruums about a voluntary recall "but these discussions are still ongoing." Diamond Shruums did not respond to an email from Phoenix New Times seeking comment.
