Amanitas found in moutains
    #374120 - 08/18/01 01:56 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I found a big mushroom in the mountains. I live in Colorado. My friend ate about half of the cap and said he tripped. I am worried he was lying. I don't know anything about these shrooms. They look like Amanitas (Big, red, covered with white bumps). What I want to know is, are there any poisonous mushrooms that look like these. I know where to find a lot more so I would also like to know how to tell if they are good and how much I should eat. Thanks.

Cannabis gave a good description--these are pretty unmistakable. As for the "enjoy" part--well, some folks do, some hate them, & some (like me) find them occasionally "interesting" which is not the same thing as enjoyment. Eaten raw they will only make you sick & maybe a little stupid--you gotta cook them to get the best effects. 1-3 ounces fresh, cooked up in a stir-fry or omelet, will give you anywhere from mild inebriation to stumbling drunkenness, followed by blurry/ distorted vision, followed by deep sleep & vivid dreams. Not a "trip" like Psilocybes but as I said "interesting."

Psilocybian species in Colorado are apparently rarer than hen's teeth, but Psilocybe semilanceata and Panaeolus papilonaceous have (doubtfully) been reported from cow pastures there.

Nope, they take days to develop.

if you decide to take them, do not eat them raw. either cook them or dry them. from what i remember amanitas contain the poison muscimol(?) before dried or cooked.

First of all, it is never a smart or safe idea to eat unidentified mushrooms.

Secondly, Amanitaceae is a family of beautiful mushrooms which contain the deadliest of mushrooms.

If you plan on eating mushrooms from this family you must absolutely do your homework. And learn how do differenciate species such as A. phalloides (death cap) and A. ocreata (destroying angel, death angel) and their look a likes.

And as Toxicman will tell you, there are also variations to A. muscaria.

Just a warning..not to eat anything unless you are absolutely sure.

Edited by gumby:
1. Don't hijack someones thread.
2. Don't ask for an ID on dried mushrooms without providing additional info. Even then an ID is near impossible on dried mushrooms.

:whack:

This is not your thread.  :rolleyes:
Don't jack someone elses thread!

You already got your answer in your thread.  No one is going to ID those for you because:
1. You didn't bother following the rules on how to ask for an ID. We don't have enought info to do it.
2. They're dried which makes it impossible except a few species, the best anyone could do is maybe get it to genus.
3. They're shitty pics.

They are not magic.

Ibotenic acid is a toxin that is found in raw Amanita M. This can be converted to the active muscimol by refluxing the dry mushrooms in hot water app. 75C. It is definitely not smart to eat a raw Amanita M. mushroom. Does anyone know of any methods of converting muscimol in to a crystalline salt directly from the freshly refluxed solution of dried mushrooms? I guess a better question would be once you have the pure muscimol resin, what would be a good solvent to recrystallize the resin in to obtain pure crystalline muscimol? I have scoured the web for information on a process like this, and have come up with nothing. If anyone one would know the answer I assume it would be at this forum.
