The Other “Magic Mushroom”

Amanita muscaria—commonly known as fly agaric, fly amanita, and amanitais the most iconic mushroom that you will typically see depicted in art. You may have seen this mushroom in Mario video games, The Smurfs TV shows and movies, the classic Fantasia movie from Disney, or from any of the countless paintings spanning the last few hundreds of years since the Renaissance era. There is even a pretty accurate emoji (🍄) these days!

Amanita muscaria is native to woods in the Northern Hemisphere, including parts of Europe, Asia, North America, and even some parts of Africa. For many years, it has been inaccurately mislabeled as poisonous to the public, but this is a misconception based on misinterpretations of scientific studies. Amanita muscaria is completely different from the deadly Amanita phalloides and is legal to consume in 48 states in 2024, excluding Louisiana and Florida.

Amanita muscaria contains psychotropic/nootropic chemicals of muscimol and ibotenic acid. Psychotropic refers to substances that reportedly have the potential to affect the mind, emotions, and behavior, while nootropic substances are thought to improve cognitive function, such as improving concentration and focus. It is important to note that Amanita muscaria mushrooms are not associated with psychedelic effects associated with a very different type of “magic mushrooms,” which contain psilocybin.

Amanita Muscaria vs. Psilocybe Mushrooms

Instead of psychedelic effects, amanitas have been reported to produce energetic and dizzying effects, but have not been reported to result in a “trip.” Psychedelic effects are reported after consuming Psilocybe mushrooms, which contain Psilocybin, but Psilocybe mushrooms are only legal in a few countries outside of the United States. Psilocybe mushrooms are mostly illegal in the USA, except in a few locations that have decriminalized their use.

Reported Effects of Amanita Muscaria

Research and user reports suggest that taking Amanita muscaria may help the following:

  • Increase in motivation and energy
  • Visual and auditory perceptual changes
  • Lack of time awareness
  • Mood uplift
  • Drowsiness

Muscimol Vs Ibotenic Acid

As mentioned before, Amanita muscaria contains the psychotropic/nootropic chemicals muscimol and ibotenic acid. Muscimol is the more sought-after chemical in Amanitas as it is said to be easier to consume without side effect. Ibotenic acid, meanwhile, can be more challenging to consume due to reported side effects that may include headaches, dizziness, and nausea.

Microdosing

Microdosing has emerged as a popular way to consume various medicine and chemicals with reported emotional and psychological health benefits. This involves regularly taking a very low-level dosage of the substance, which can help users achieve a constant or semi-constant low-level benefit of the substance.

Microdosing is a common way to take different types of mushrooms as it can allow people to enjoy the reported benefits without having a strong response, which could be unwanted or unsafe in certain situations.

Amanita Combinations

You will also find that extracts like Muscimol can be added to other products to enhance or round out the amanita effects. This can include combining Amanita muscaria with other mushrooms, combining Amanita muscaria and D9 THC or other cannabis products, combining Amanita muscaria and nootropic blends, and combining Amanita muscaria and caffeine.
