FDA Issues Warning Against Small Doses of Chocolate Causing Hospitalizations for 6 Individuals

In recent years, the microdosing industry has experienced rapid growth, with companies seeking to transform substances like MDMA into approved medications. Despite this, the FDA has reported that eight individuals in four states became ill after consuming Diamond Shruumz-brand microdosing chocolate bars. These products contain small doses of drugs, typically psychedelics, but are marketed as microdoses. However, the company does not actually use any psychedelic substances in their chocolate bars.

Diamond Shruumz offers a variety of products, including chocolate bars in six different flavors. According to their website, their products utilize a proprietary blend of natural ingredients and do not contain any psychedelic substances. Despite these claims, people who consumed their chocolate bars experienced severe symptoms such as seizures, central nervous system depression, nausea and vomiting, agitation, abnormal heart rates and hyper/hypotension.

All eight individuals who fell ill sought medical care and six required hospitalization. Fortunately, there were no reported deaths related to the consumption of the chocolate bars. The FDA is currently investigating the cause of these illnesses and determining the appropriate next steps. Diamond Shruumz has yet to comment on the situation despite Business Insider’s request for a statement.
