Amanita Question
    #996729 - 10/27/02 01:52 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

What does the color of an Amanita muscaria say about its psychoactive properties?

If I order Amanita online, would I be better off ordering "Red Amanita Muscaria Mushrooms (Grade A Washington State Mushrooms)" or "Premium A+ South African amanita Caps" from Bouncing Bear Botanicals?

I think if you want Amanitas for eating them for a trip you want Amanita Muscaria, not some other Amanitas.

Like the Psilocybe species, it is thought that younger specimens will be at the peak of potency. As the fruits age, their color will begin to fade and the levels of psychoactive compounds will begin to degrade as well. Despite evidence that the psychedelic properties of this species are found primarily in the skin of the cap, I doubt that color is a reliable indicator of potency, as alkaloid concentrations vary widely from mushroom to mushroom, probably regardless of what they look like. The different varieties apparantly differ in concentration of various chemical compounds in addition to ibotenic acid (which converts to muscimol, the "active" ingredient)...any of which could be tied to color...I am not familiar with either of the vendors you listed, but as long as the mushrooms were picked at the peak of health, and dried properly, either would be an acceptable choice.

Lots of interesting amanita reading here.
