Amanita Muscaria: one seeker's observations [merged]
Posted 02 May 2005 - 09:45 AM
from the original person doing the mushroom,
pics, methods, etc... there's just so much bad news out there on these things...
If there's a positive mental effect to be had from ingesting them in a particular way, I'd
love to hear it - from someone with first hand knowledge.
I've picked these many times in the past but my couple of bad times have made me not
want to mess. I ate them raw 2x and it wasn't an experience I'd like to repeat,
sort of like eating nutmeg or datura...

Seems most of the bad trips involve megadoses and / or uncooked shrooms.
Some folks cooked and still had a bad time -
there isn't a solid connection I can see, no vague agreement on what is a good way
to go about consuming these things.
One dude said that he felt "shooting pains like someone pushing hundreds of needles
into my dick - no one here on erowid ever mentioned that . . . "
Yowch . . .

I had a slight trippy buzz, colors were
brighter and I felt happier and relaxed.
Probably lasted 4 to 6 hours, not sure.
Made me real tired - couldn't get off the couch.
Not that great.
I've tried nutmeg before too.
It's nasty, not recommended!
It WILL make you trip, if you eat enough.
I ate a whole bottle and tripped for
like 2 days, no shit. And a hangover
after that - from the nutmeg.
My eyes turned yellow,
I'm guessing some kind of poisoning.

but not the kind we're talking about.
Still, not much reason to fuck with them.
Psilly shrooms are better, safer,
and they have their own shaman
magic history. IMO

<snip>as these mushrooms are highly poisonous and not meant to be ingested straight, these mushrooms taken in the wrong way will kill you. Other names are fly agaric, death angel and you get the picture hopefully.
That is straight up misinformation, there ISN'T a "Death Angel" mushroom, there are "Destroying Angels", which are a solid white mushroom, and "Death Caps", which are a tan/yellow/light brown sort of color, generaly. Both of them (destroying angels and death caps) will destroy your liver in short order, leading to a highly unpleasant death. They are generaly potent enough to kill you for eating a single mushroom or less, not something to mess around with.
Nowhere have i found even a reference to someone dying from muscarias, they aren't toxic in that sense.
Highly unpleasant, you bet, but they won't kill you.

poison has run it's course and then a couple days later your liver and kidneys shut down.
They are related to muscaria, but I've never heard of anyone dying from eating an
You may WISH you were dead, what with the penis needles and all, but they're not
recorded as being lethal.

is that damn few people ever do amanitas more than once.
the few who talk positively about amanitas
have often never actually done any.

It was James Arthur who said to mix 1/2 gram of Amanita with a regular cube dose. I wouldn't know. I hate puking.
Posted 16 May 2005 - 08:05 AM
since they are of course his main focus in his writings
so maybe he figured that piggy-backing a below-threshold dose
of amanitas onto real psillis would increase their popularity
as folks confuse the effects of the one for the other.
