Schultes and Hoffman reported that, in Mexico, Lycoperdon marginatum and L. mixtecorum are used to induce auditory hallucinations.

Arora lists L. marginatum as "edible when firm and white inside", and states that no hallucinogenic compounds have been found in specimens analyzed.

Given that David Arora is likely to have eaten it or spoken to people who have I would tend to accept his report, and suggest that they are not hallucinogenic, at least in the US.

In Mexico they may have a different strain or possibly they are not actually the same species.

The Schultes and Hoffman reference is The Botany and Chemistry of Hallucinogens, 2nd edition.

Here is a article by Schultes (go to the bottom).

I was always told that there are no toxic puffballs, atleast not in the united states. Actually, they say that if you are out in the middle of a field bleeding to death these things make great blood stoppers.

I know that they also release more spores than any other mushroom. We have massive ones all over the state here. I have been down deep into Mexico and I would say that what is growing down there grows here as well. I have never ingested any so I have no idea if they will have psychoactive effects or not.

After reading this I decided to go outside and pick some. The outside is very dark, the inside tissue is very sponge like, brownish gray and releases massive puffs of purple spores. I mean, we are talking barney the dinosaur purple here.

I am going to do some further research and then when I feel comfortable with it I will try it and report back. If anyone has any idea what it could be from the description let me know. I can't seem to upload a photo to my post, sorry- FNG.

When I was a kid I found one of those in my parents backyard. It was literally the size of a soccer ball. I kicked it around a lot, and it would shoot out big puffs of brown spores. It didn't seem healthy to be honest, breathing in those spores.

Only place I've seen hallucinogenic puffballs is Farcry 3. Which btw is an amazing game beyond amazing.

So far I am thinking its safe.


Fry cry two was better in a lot of ways. It had a minimalist approach that made the game more challenging. For example, when walking up to an enemy camp you actually had to scout it out and look for your enemies. If they were alerted they would start coming out of the jungle and the only indication was the muzzle flash or the whites of their eyes.

Fry cry three you had blips on a radar that spoon fed you all of the information and you basically move like an unstoppable superhuman. Its funny that you should mention that game, however because I was thinking that it would be cool to make a farcry style game just today as I was hunting puffballs where the main character forms a symbiotic bond with an unknown  mycelium and it gives him special abilities... like cordycep spores to infect and take control of groups of enemy soldiers, maybe even have the game go 'real tine strategy' for a while to mix it up as you use the fungi super powers instead of always shooting things. Deadly puffballs of death!- anyone?

far cry 3 ending is sorta how I view every individual..

All that game was is a copy. They mashed Skyrim and Just Cause together and reaped the profits. Shitty game once you realize that. I'd play it but never buy it I won't give them money for that.

Yeah not to go off topic though. There is a few species of puffball which can cause gastro intestinal issues but none will kill you. I would look to other species in your area which are known to be hallucinogenic. Wouldn't waste your time.

Okay, so if it isn't white don't eat it. The darker ones are actually called "earth balls" and do contain poisons. They won't kill you, but will cause chills, sweats, vomiting and diarrhea.

While we're talking about strange hallucinogens, Boletus Manicus really catches my eye as the active alkaloid is Almost as potent as LSD and still unidentified...

Boletus Manicus Heim


Benjamin Thomas, B.A.(Hons)*

Journal of Psychoactive Drugs 35(3), 393-394 (2003)


Abstract
Boletus manicus Heim [Boletaceae] is a species of fungus found in Papua New Guinea. It is reported to have psychoactive properties. The chemistry of this species is poorly understood. The available chemical data indicates that B. manicus contains trace amounts of three unidentified indolic substances. The chemical structure of these substances has not yet been determined. For these indoles to be active in trace amounts they must be as potent as d-lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD).

Boletus manicus Heim [Family: Boletaceae; Order: Agaricales; Class: Basidiomycetes] is a species of fungi that was originally collected and described by the French mycologist Roger Heim [1900-1979] from Papua New Guinea in the 1960s (Heim 1963). In August to September 1963, Heim visited the Wahgi Valley in the Western Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea for three weeks with American ethnomycologist R. Gordon Wasson [1898-1986] (Heim & Wasson 1965). Heim and Wasson visited the Wahgi Valley to investigate reports by Australian anthropologist Marie Reay [1922-2000] that the Kuma people used apparently hallucinogenic [sic] fungi (Reay 1960). B. manicus has become well known for its psychoactive properties, as a result of many popular books (R?tsch 1998; Dobkin de Rios 1984; Schultes & Hofmann 1979; Emboden 1972). It is reported to produce visual and auditory hallucinations (Thomas 2000: 172)

The chemistry of B. Manicus remains poorly understood and the active principle is unkown (Schultes & Hofmann 1980). However, B. Manicus contain indolic substances (Ratsch 1998: 688;Ott 1993: 422). The presence of these indolic substances was originally reported by Heim(Heim 1965) Heim provided samples of B. Manicus to Albert Hofmann in his Sandoz AG laboratory in Basel, Switzerland, in the 1960s (Hofmann 2001). Hofmann, the Swiss chemist who discovered d-lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), detected trace amounts of three indolic substances in B. Manicus (Ott 1993: 298 & 422) but "The amounts were too low to allow structural studies" (Hofmann 2001).
Heim has suggested that these indolic substances "could be psychotropic" (Heim 1072: 173). As a result, Heim conducted three bioassays with B. Manicus. These trials with "weak dose"( less than 60 mg; Ott 1993:298) were attemped by Heim, who suggested that "the amount were insufficient to make any definite deductions" (Heim 1972:173).
However, in the second trial, the ingestion of a powder made by crushing the fresh of B. Manicus was followed by "the appearance of several luminous, fleeting visions during the course of a dream" (Heim 19072: 173)

Evidence for the presence of indolic substances in B. manicus can be found in the description of both the visual and auditory effects of these mushrooms (Reay 1977). After ingesting B. manicus Kuma men experienced "Lilliputian hallucinations [sic]" (Reay 1977: 59). Similar hallucinations have been reported with other species of Boletus (Stijve 1997: 33). In China, the ingestion of uncooked boletes has been reported to produce hallucinations of "a whole regiment of 2 cm tall soldiers marching over the table-cloth" (Stijve 1997: 33). "Lilliputian hallucinations [sic]" have also been experienced with the use of N,N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) (O'Rorke 1998: 32). The Kuma experienced "Lilliputian hallucinations [sic]" of bush-demons flying about their heads (Reay 1977: 59). The Kuma regarded bush-demons as "tiny, two-dimensional, and often transparent creatures . . . [and] always identified cartoon figures . . . readily and positively as representations of bush-demons" (Reay 1977: 59). Such demons would "buzz" about their heads. It was reported by one Kuma man who had eaten B. manicus that these demons also made a "strange and terrible noise 'inside his ears' which he interpreted as a bush-demon boxing his ears" (Reay 1977: 59). Psilocybin often produces a similar "buzzing" noise (Beach 1996-1997: 13).

If any of the unidentified indolic substances in B. manicus are psychoactive, then they must be as potent, if not more potent, than LSD (Ott 1999). Assuming that B. manicus contains 1% of these indolic substances, which is a much higher concentration of indoles than Hofmann found in Mexican Psilocybe mushrooms (Hofmann 1960), a 1% concentration would represent less than 0.6 mg (600 ?g) of these substances (Ott 1999). Jonathan Ott has suggested that "we know of no fungal indole active at this level" (Ott 1999). The only substance that could explain psychoactivity at or below this level is LSD (Ott 1999). It is, of course, possible that B. manicus might contain LSD. If it does, it is difficult to understand why Albert Hofmann was unable to detect its presence in B. manicus samples that he analyzed in his laboratory. For this reason, it is unlikely that B. manicus does contain LSD. It is possible, however, that B. manicus contains an as yet unidentified psychoactive indolic substance that is more potent than LSD.
