Thanks for sharing your experience with this mushroom astrofaer it's great to hear of your positive experiences so far. Anything more to report since your first post.
I've always lived with a rather irrational fear of this mushrooms properties given the scare campaigns surrounding its toxicity. To date the only account of a person dying of A.muscaria poisoning I've been able to conjure comes from an instance in which one man ingested 20 specimens at one sitting! Meanwhile alcohol poisoning kills 6 Americans each day and yet that doesn't stop me from enjoying a beer. This negative stigma surrounding A.muscaria will only end if more of us explore it's therapeutic properties. As our season nears I'm excited to micro dose this species for the first time in my life. I have walked by it in pursuit of psychedelics for more than a decade. This time I will explore further than it's fairy tale presence in the forest. Will report results for all those interested.

It's still on my to do list. The season has arrived so next venture to the forest I'll collect some of these mushrooms and report on the effects.

I've just taken my first microdose of A.muscaria. A dose of 0.3g dried material made into a tea. No effects 30 minutes in. If I don't experience anything I'll try a larger dose another day.

Okay so no effects to report after a few hours. Safe to say this dose is below the threshold. Plan is to increase the dose slightly each day until I find a happy medium.

I chomped a mushroom, a full large cap that was dried in the sun and then puked and I drooled like a delirious maniac on the ground in the dark, under a full moon, while time stopped completely..... and I thought I was dead......
Cept i WERNT......
Amanita is definitely not for "recreationing" and long term micro-dosing provided this experimenter, also, with a rise in clarity and a specific ending too.....but I pick them wild if I can find them...
I'm due to dry some this year methinks if the DEER don't eat them all.....WTF? I don't know If I'll ever eat a big old mushroom again but micro is on the agenda....

I attempted this with dried, foraged specimens off and on for about a year. I would consume up to a couple tablespoons in the morning. I never felt any appreciable effects. Nice to hear the op believes they are getting value for their efforts.

sorry but 1.5 to 2.5 isnt a microdose and if you still are not noticing anything (which shouldnt be thaat noticible with micro) then take a few days or a week off and let ur brain relax
Recently started trying this out myself. Foraged about half a dozen medium to large A.Muscaria last autumn. Separated caps from stems and split the stems longways to facilitate quicker drying. Fanned until pretty crispy, then stuffed in a jar with plenty of desicant packs. This thread reminded me I had them a few weeks back so I've powdered them to homogenise it. Got about 40g to experiment with. Been taking it easy as no recent experience of A.M. and fully aware of how variable there active content can be. Started with a 0.5g brewed into a ginger tea with some bonus vitamin C and honey. Can't say as that was noticeable effect. Then a day or 2 later 1g brewed up the same way. Some relaxation noticed. Can't say that slept any better. Which was the primary benefit I was hoping for. Have since done 1.5g and then last night 2g. At this dose there is a definite anxiolytic effect which persists into the following day. Still not noticed improved sleep yet. Will try 2.5g next time. Will also need to go foraging again in a few months to restock for further experiments. Current stash won't last long if I end up using 2.5g a time and take it once or twice a week.

Not saying don't do it, but if you need help with sleep....
