Amanita Muscaria Mushrooms.
We could write forever about these beauties and how effective they are for those looking to take a trip or for those of you looking to add micro-dosing mushrooms to your daily routine. Psychedelic Pharmacology is rapidly gaining a reputation for performing near-miracles for people suffering from PTSD, Anxiety, Stress, and now even Eating Disorders. We have known for quite a while that in many cases, modern pharmaceuticals can cause more problems than they fix, some fix nothing at all. The pharmaceutical industry has spent incredible sums of money to keep natural cures off the radar of most people, and in many cases have been successful at relegating them to an illegal status, as in the case of mushrooms, as having no medical benefits at all. Who knows, but it seems reasonable that we will likely find that some diseases that have up until now been considered a death sentence, can be treated effectively with natural remedies.
Mushrooms have been a part of nearly every culture in one way or another. Psychedelics have been used for centuries as a right of passage, a cure for disease, and a tool to help expand consciousness and encourage spiritual and emotional growth. Do we really need to mention that they are also pretty damn fun? The main mushroom that we associate with psychoactive effects is Psilocybin, but there is in-fact another species of mushroom that has been used for centuries and carries a very interesting storyline.
Amanita Muscaria. What is it?
also known as the fly agaric mushroom, is a species of fungus that is native to the northern hemisphere. The mushroom is known for its distinctive appearance, featuring a red cap with white spots. Amanita Muscaria has been used for centuries by indigenous people for its psychoactive properties.
The active compounds in Amanita Muscaria are ibotenic acid and muscimol. These compounds are responsible for the mushroom’s hallucinogenic effects. The effects of Amanita Muscaria can vary greatly depending on the dosage and the individual consuming it. Some people report experiencing euphoria, hallucinations, and a heightened sense of perception, while others experience nausea and confusion.
While Amanita Muscaria has been used for centuries in traditional medicine and religious ceremonies, it should be noted that consuming this mushroom can be dangerous. The mushroom can be toxic if not prepared properly, and it is also illegal in some countries.
In traditional medicine, Amanita Muscaria is used to treat various ailments such as headaches, cramps, and even cancer. However, there is no scientific evidence to support these claims.
