Amanita question...smoking vs. ingesting???
    #3195220 - 09/29/04 01:03 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I've been reading up a little on the Muscaria thing, but am still paranoid about these, since all my mushrooming has been safe edibles until this year.

I have a person who is very close to me that's interested in trying them...but only if it won't kill him. DOH! I have access to numerous Amanita Muscaria / formosa and am comfortable with my identification...but still have concerns about his safety.

I read about drying them in the oven but was a little confused about the actual preparation...and also the effects of the shrooms. Sounds like it's a rather light intoxicant effect...is that right??? I read that in an article anyway.

That made me wonder why anyone would eat them then. If you just get a buzz like from "A"??? Why risk it?? Or is it better than that???

I also read that it's a mushroom that the Shamans used which makes me want to learn more about that. (I like the shaman way) Anyone have any good links on that???

I'd appreciate any personal experiences. My close friend has done mushrooms...but.....I don't want him going to the hospital on Amanitas! Appreciate any feedback!

Hey there! Just so happens that I ate some Muscaria var. Formosa last night! I baked em in the oven (just cut off the stem and set them gills up on the acctual oven rack until they were pretty much completely dry and a bit crispy). Then I cut em up and weighed them out and ate aproximately 9 grams. From what I experience... I would say that it takes more then that! I would guess since it is so late in the season and they have lost a lot of their potency. I didnt get sick to my stomache or anything. I did feel a little different and I feel pretty confident that just a higher dosage will do the trick. I was experiencing a few of the side effects such as excessive sweating and salivation, and I did feel drowsy and disoriented. I'm going to try a higher dosage tonight so Ill let you know how it goes! =D

Any special preparation that anyone thinks is best??? I realize it's late in the season (according the the reading I've done) for their potency to be prime...but since I'm the mushroom person in my circle...I want to be informed before my friend forges on ahead with his plan.

Safety first!

Help!

Thanks! Leavin' to go snag a few more right now...back in a few.

Read that before...thanks! Smoking seems the VERY mellow route.

The drying method isn't very clear anywhere. Top down??? Gills up??? Pour juices back over the gills???

I found a few amanita today. I peeled the skin layer off the caps and they are drying out. I plan to grind it up the dry skins and mix them 1:1:1 with some mary jane and salvia.
