Amanita Muscaria (Fly Agaric) Mushroom

Everything in this topic is all bits and pieces taken from my other blog entirely dedicated to the Amanita Muscaria/Fly Agaric Mushroom.

If you're interested in learning pretty much everything there is to do with this wonderful completely legal mushroom you can check out my blog here.

"Amanita muscaria sometimes called fly agaric or fly Amanita is a mushroom which contain the psychoactive chemicals ibotenic acid and muscimol. They are best known for their distinctive appearance (bright reds and yellows with white spots).

Amanita muscaria (as well as all other Amanita species) is uncontrolled federally in the United States. This means all parts of the plant and its extracts are legal to cultivate, buy, possess, and distribute (sell, trade or give) without a license or prescription."

The Different Substances That Make You Trip Contained in Amanita Muscaria

The 3 chemicals that affect the body in fly agaric are: Muscimol, Ibotenic Acid, and Muscarine. The main chemical out of those that makes you trip is Muscimol.

Muscimol will mainly affect your GABA receptor as a GABA A agnostic. Other drugs also target the same receptor such as xanax. Obviously you don't feel like you're on xanax when you eat amanita muscaria mushrooms though. Muscimol is a inhibitory neurotransmitter, which means it decreases the electrochemical activity of neurons, which is mostly what causes you to feel the way you do while on fly agaric.

Ibotenic Acid does not play a particularly big role in affecting you. When ingested it is partially metabolized into muscimol, but is not believed to cross the blood brain barrier. Thus its effects are minimal.

Muscarine affects acetylcholine levels and acts at muscarinic receptors, which got its name from this chemical. This causes you to have stimulation of the muscles, glands, and central nervous system.

Most Common Positive Effects of the Fly Agaric

Euphoria: feelings of peace and well being

Physical relaxation / dream state: (during the sedative effects) can be highly detailed, colorful, and have a great sense of clarity

Sociability: Group interaction can become incoherent: "conversational weirdness", frequent changes in topic, "non-linear conversations"

Clarity: Often no interference with memory or logic: many report strong "clarity of thought" and "stillness of mind".

Oral Dose and Trip Details

If you don't have a scale or just do not know how much amanita muscaria (fly agaric) you should take, follow this:

To get a slight buzz going off of the fly agaric you would eat 1-5 grams which is about the size of 1 medium cap.

The most common dosage taken and the one I would recommend for beginners with this mushroom is 5-10 grams, which equals to about 1-3 medium sized caps.

A heavy dose for people who are experienced with the fly agaric is 10-30 grams or roughly 2-6 medium caps.

Trip Details:

After about an hour you should start to feel a little strange, although it can take up to 2 hours for some people.

Soon you'll begin to peak, this is when everything gets crazy or in my opinion awesome. It usually lasts about 2 hours.

You'll continually have effects though for about 6-8 hours or up to 10 hours for larger doses.

You'll then still kind of feel different for another couple hours afterwords, its not really unpleasant in my opinion, you'll just feel, odd.

Most places in the states, unless its been warm where you live, the amanita muscaria season is over. If you would like to try it I would suggest getting it online. I've bought from a few different vendors before but the best quality Amanita Muscaria Mushrooms that you can buy online I have manged to find is here:

Wow, so glad I stumbled on your blog! I can see there is a wealth of information here that I intend to mine over the next few months. I also started my own blog on this very subject....

Be cautious with muscimol (fly agaric) in low dose it is a wonderful "floaty" and "invincible" high, but in higher concentrations such as drinking your own urine to magnify the effects, it can be DEVASTATINGLY powerful!

Disregard the myth of "poison" or "toxic" RUBBISH! by some estimates you would need several kilos of the raw material to do any real damage...

I completely agree.

Start out with the lowest dose possible, if you picked them yourself MAKE DAMN SURE they are dried out perfectly... otherwise you will puke your fucking brains out more than you ever have in your life (I learned this the hard way awhile back).

So great comment and thank you for the positive feedback. If you have anymore questions about anything at all relating to drugs/herbs/substances feel free to ask. And if you want to add anymore info on any of the topics you are more than welcome. (:

Thanks mate! I'll certainly stay tuned...For other readers, remember, of all the entheogens, fly agaric is the most widespread and absolutely free! Anywhere you find the silver birch tree in summer/ autumn in the North, you will find amanita muscaria by the kilo!...

Dry well over a radiator (no need to bake in an oven, trust me!) until cracker dry and store well with dessicant and you will have months of winter warmth!
