I don't know the first thing about mushrooms
    #4475153 - 07/31/05 12:01 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

But why is there a whole section dedicated to Amanitas in the photo gallery? are these the dangerous/deadly ones? am I missing something? Sorry for n00bism to teh max

They also make excellent subjects for photography.

A couple species of amanitas (muscaria and pantherina) are psychoactive, some others are edible, and a few more are deadly poisonous. The psychoactive ones are totally different chemically and by experience than psilocybes, and a lot of people don't enjoy them (though there are those of us that certainly do).

And, as gdman brought up, they make for awesome pics. Few mushrooms can rival the beauty of a good Amanita muscaria - the bright red one with white warts, famous from all manner of fairy tales.

the reason theres a whole section dedicated to them is because they are believed to be by many anthropologists the sacred soma of religious lore and history.  in short.

www.jamesarthur.net is brilliant on the subject, though dont take my word for it, read a book! :wink:

Some people like the effects of amanitas, but most people I've spoken with who have done it would not repeat the experience. It's quite different from psilocybin. Also, the psychoactive constituents of amanita muscaria are considered toxic, while psilocybin and psilocin are perfectly safe.

the reason most people dont like Amanitas is because they are fucking with something they can't handle. the effects of Amanitas at higher doses require a strong mind to handle. they are nothing like other drugs. in addition, most people tend to dose far too much their first time. a light dose of 3 or 4 grams, prepared properly, provides a pleasent opiate like sedation, which is a great way to start. many people make the mistake of thinking that since they can handle other drugs fine at high doses they can handle the Amanitas fine at high doses, which is both ignorant and idiotic. it is not a drug which you take "to get fucked up", like mushrooms, lsd, marijuana and many others can be. as far as ive experienced, you can take 3 or 4 grams for a pleasent sedation (which is not at all a "fucked up" feeling, just a relaxed, pleasant feeling) or you can go for the higher doses and discover things you may not be ready to cope with.

It probably has a lot to do with the fact that it is a deliriant at high doses, and most people are totally inexperienced with that type of drug. I personally have never dabbled in deliriants and probably never will. True hallucinations and anticholinergic effects might be just too much.

It's said that certain barbarians used Amainta muscaria to get pumped up or enraged before battle and so they wouldnt feel pain or lose courage, something the barbarians are famous for. Also, on a more touchy subject, its said that Jesus used Amanitas to perform miracles (i.e. Jesus ate Amanitas which gave his piss "alchohol-like" effects and also turned it red, a proven aspect of Amanitas). Some speculate that they didnt eat bread and drink wine at the last supper, but ate Amanits (which feels like human skin under water) and drank muscimol infused urine.

Yes, it is widely believed that the Norse 'Berserkers' ate Amanitas before heading to battle as it would drive them into an insane battle mode (hence the name Berserker) which gave them the strength of three men, a lack of fear, and struck terror into their enemies.
