amanita muscaria??!!
    #1020747 - 11/04/02 01:28 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

my biology text book has a picture of them and states that they are deadly poisonous! I have read posts on here about people using them recreationally. so wots the deal with them, i dont doubt these posts, so i assume that either my textbook means they have an overdose level unlike most shrooms ( except stupid quantities like 12kg, which i have heard possible if the stomach wud allow it), or my textbooks is LYING, cos they dont want me going off to the woods and eating them. some1 always trying to spoil our fun!

Do you believe everything you read? I hope not.

they are not "deadly"...
the toxins in A muscaria are rather mild, as toxins go...
ibotenic acid & muscimol are "toggle-switch" intoxicants... chemically related to "gaba" (gamma-amino-butyric-acid) a neurotransmitter...
supposedly, "most" hospital admissions for "mushroom poisoning" are due to A muscaria ingestion... but they patients tend to live through the experience...
however, within the genus Amanita are some seriously deadly shroomies --- death cap & destroying angel are some of the endearing names given to these lovelies... and they can kill you by destroying liver fiuntion over the space of 72 hours... not nice...
(there may be info here at the shromery at the "amanitas" link on the front page, and at places like erowid, lycaeum other drug & shroom sites, and of course at your local public library...)
soma, the pillar of the sky...

Amanita Muscaria is toxic, but it can be used as an hallucinogenic. I've never tried it myself, but heard from people on this forum that it is not a pleasent experience. If you do decide to try it, make sure you read up about it, because they have to be prepared in a special way to destroy the harmful toxins before consuming.

Yeah, i get the impression that it's basically cooler to look at than ingest, given the existence of cubies and the like.

jamesarthur.net might be able to help you out

i followed his directions... me and my girl got about 25 or so and prepared them the proper way... i reached an inconsistency though, if you have too much, like i did at the end, i could feel myself going to sleep, however if you have too little, then you just feel drunk, yes drunk.
my tripping partner got pushed 'just' over the edge and was lying on the bed hallucinating, but nothing incredible....
i wasnt so i went for a walk outside, and could see strange shadows moving and lurking, but not too much going on, a really interesting thing that happened though was hallucinating these buddhist wheels of life... i assume this is where the psychedelic connection with them comes in...;]
i could close my eyes and my whole inner periphery of vision was filled with this big circular object, filled with (sort of like mayan/psychedelic shapes and figures) interconnecting and weaving coloured objects, and it was slowly rotating, i could make it go anti-clockwise or clockwise, it couldnt keep still, and i got this sense of feeling of the weight of that moment, that something important was about to happen... alas it did not
i think these have the potential to be a very powerful experience, you just need to injest a lot to start off with, rather than a lot over a period...
i would reccommend them, but dont be afraid to do it properly, if you dry them and bake them thoroughly, then the nausea inducing acid is going to be mostly converted into muscimol......
go well
