None whatsoever. Christianity was never one of the "mystery religions," even if some branches of Gnostic systems were. Yes, the use was known and may have had some part in Samson's form of Nazirite as well as recreational use according to Robert Graves (immortalized in the Song of Solomon's reference to "the little foxes") but Paul's reference to "the mystery" makes it clear that it is quite open and not part of some secret knowledge.
