Those are indeed amanita's, the variation formosa I would say. Yes, they are considered poisonous by some people, but prepared in the right way people say they are good. You can find prepartions at www.erowid.org.

Also nice find,  :laugh:

Sorry the other pictures hadn't loaded. They look like muscaria.

So these are definitely 100% safe to eat without dying? As long as I prepare them right?

i'm sure you gotta bake em to make a chemical reaction take place, then they're "safe"

i personally wouldn't eat an amanita, but alot of people have and do

you must bake them in oven for an hour on high heat until they dry and an acid reaction change happens, then eat them. not poisonous.

As others have already confirmed, those look like Amanita muscaria.

NO! Amanita muscaria very rarely does so, but there have been deaths from eating it. The deaths are associated with eating excessive amounts and/or victims who were already weakened by illness. One of the reasons for drying is that, relatively speaking, it makes dosages by weight more uniform.

The vast majority of people that try eating them find the experience unpleasant, often unpleasant enough to make a trip to the emergency room. The only mushroom that produces more emergency room visits is Chlorophyllum molybdites. If you put together the various similar Amanita species that have the same basic alkaloids as Amanita muscaria, they often manage to produce more emergency room visits than Chlorophyllum.

Happy mushrooming!

if you have enough amanita i suggest peeling off the skin on the top.. and baking it till it becomes crispy.. eat about a square inch first.. and let that pass through your system for 24-48 hours.. everyone has different reactions to everything.. then after that if you dont get sick id say go for it

And can I ask you why you want to eat those? If you are doing it to just get high, i would recommend a trip to the gas station for a 6 back. The only way I could drool as much as i did on amanitas is to have drunk 20 six packs. The excperience is not pleasent, unless you are of the mentally prepaired type that understand the way to access it's values as a psychadelic experience. I am not one of those mental people either....I think they are rare. Just some friendly heads up.

I read on erowid a few days ago about Amanitas. What I read really, REALLY shocked and amazed me. These people were explaining "the loop". An experience I encountered on an absurd overdose of over 130mg of 5-meo-dipt aka Foxy.

I was shocked because foxy is a tryptamine developed in a lab and ive searched for so long for someone who experienced what I experienced and didn't find anyone leaving me feeling alone. It seems amanita consumers have experienced this and quite frequently if I might add.

I went to st thomas and camped out ontop of the island... Despite my entire family being poor all my life, the land is priceless.
I was chased by haitians in the main city charlotte amalie when my girlfriend and I got some cocaine for free in a bar and mixed it with alcohol, to form a stronger drug. With such confidence at 2am, we walked the 4-5 or so miles down to the beach where the african slaves lie like lions waiting on tourist prey.


The war isen't on drugs... the war is on the causes that influence people to abuse drugs. drug-abuse is a by-product of the system and much like radioactive waste occurs from utilizing nuclear power, drug addicts with drug-problems will need to be properly disposed of, like the decaying radioactive waste produced from nuclear energy. -i2ancid

I was told 110 is all they need to be dried right and most vendors dry at this temp. You should visit your patch again and hopefully find more. If you get a large cap you can grill it fresh on low and drink the liquid that collects inside the cap. A bit of lemon might help get the alkaloids out and mitght also improve flavor.

I was sure that there was more to it than just baking them. I'm sure I read they need to be boiled also, it changes the Ibotenic Acid into Muscimol. I've never tried Amanita Muscaria, you should be very cautious with them.

I took these this weekend. Only a small dose to test. I chopped them up small then dried them in the oven with the door open a little bit at about 110 degrees (C). It takes between one and 2 hours and stinks like hell!!

Once they are crispy i crushed it up fine and drunk with orange juice (on an empty stomach). I only had 4 grams to experiment but my stomach felt fine. So fine in fact that i then took 2.5 grams of dried cyans 2 and a half hours later.

I recommend trying these. Small dose obviously for the first time. They do seem to have a needlessly harsh reputation. Myself, nor my 2 friends had any negative effects that night. I WANT MORE!!!
