Buckaroobanzai your words most certainly makes me more comfortable in testing them amanitas - thx for sharing...and that goes to everyone else who posted in this topic.
I'll have a go at 2-3 grams in the near future.
Btw heres a pic of the amanitas I picked.

sometimes it's like living in a nightmare, seriously can be beyond where most people are capable of going
for your sake do large doses of cacti and ayahuasca before even considering aminitas the two former will give you a slight taste of the body load and the possible puke fest
if aya or mescaline scare you in the least or the body load is too much aminitas are not gonna be your thing
Buckaroo said deleriant, amen to that one, I really can't call a aminita experience a trip it's in it's own catagory

anyways, i am about to try some amanita muscaria that my bf and i picked a couple weeks ago... we dried them completely, and ground them in the coffee grinder so we could measure them accurately. anything else we should do? or should we just go for it? you dont need to dry them AND cook them, correct? anyways, we are going to try 2 grams, ill definitely post about it afterwards. tata

A friend who ate a lot spent 3 days in a trailer, naked on the floor thinking he was a worm.
Sounds like fun!
Sounds like some heavy shit to me.

Do NOT boil them. Boil the water, remove it from the heat, then add your Amanita powder. Filter out the powder if you have trouble swalowing the mushy dreck (eating the dreck is stronger).
Be forewarned, the tea will taste utterly and completely horrid.
I mean BAD BAD BAD taste. Some folks can't get it down. Try to mix it with no more than 3-4 gulps of water.
I find that holding my nose while I gulp it down and then chasing with a little lime juice helps, but not a ton.
You can also grind them up and mash them into 00 gel caps to avoid the taste, but dosage is harder to measure.

I'm planning on ordering some Amanitas from BouncingBear; I noticed they have ~10 varities.

Personally, I would go for the Washington State A+ or A++ grades. Less dirt/bug bits and they are the prettiest.

Seriously, you might want to read more of my more fringe/loony rantings before you identify with me. I do not present a universally agreed upon pretty picture. I've been called damned weird more than once (and quite recently, in fact).

I collected burlap sacks full for anybody that wanted them and had an old VW Beetle 'trunk' (the one up front) full of the darn things! They were nice and fresh, dried slowly in the shade and bug-free. Gave them to any and all who wanted some.
Nobody ever asked for seconds. My brother ate some and I have never seen anybody puke and wretch so hard and so long. He had to keep drinking liquids so as to even have something to puke as his stomach eventually emptied and he had the 'dry heaves' bad. Said he got high too but I never tried them after having watched him. I wouldn't want to be high and feeling that krappy.
Some people 'peeled the caps', saying that it was the spots that had the whatever that was bad. Others made tea and drank that.
That was 25 or 30 years ago. They still flush around here to beat heck. Nobody picks them except to throw at each other in sport... like you might a snowball in winter. Squirrels eat them with no apparent ill effect but then squirrels are already kinda kooky so who can tell?
I don't think they will kill most folks in ordinary doses but again, NOBODY EVER asks for more, even though they are free! Also, if you puked as bad as brother did, I don't know how one could hold them down long enough to die but who knows? One might say that one's body clearly objects to them and wishes them gone immediately if not sooner. That's pretty much the interpretation I placed upon the experience.
I can pick'em next summer and send anybody some. They are not illegal anywhere as far as I know. There are some kids in Paonia, Colorado who sell them dried at fairs, swap-meets, etc.
I also tried using them to kill flies. It sort of works. Screens work vastly better, as a fly that is outside needn't be killed in. It's rather like taking up candle making even though you really have electric lights. Kinda cute and fun but that's about it.

Enyways they went on to say that they brew or just drink "deer" urine with the mushrooms in order not to feel the harsh onset effects of some acid ensyme that in them> or mabay to get rid of the acid all together.

Reindeer, oddly enough, will seek them out and eat them until they fall over or run out.
There is some very interesting speculation that the myth of Santa Claus and his flying reindeer originated with Siberian Ami eaters.

I'd been thinking about amis for a long time, and Buckaroo, your 'rants' have edged me closer to trying some. I am of Scandinavian decent, and I've read some scholarly reports of the association between the Amanita and santa claus. Of course, our modern version of Santa was created by Coca Cola, but the designer must have had more than a passing awareness of the ancient association- "flying" reindeer, ruddy-red cheeks of intoxication on the old shaman's face, entering through the smokehole of the yurt (nowadays the chimney) which just so happens to be the place where prayers rise to the heavens (like the blowing of tobacco smoke to send prayers to the Spirit by North American shamans). So for me, eating them can help me understand my historical heritage better.
I am into altered consciousness for the totality of what it brings, not for shits 'n' giggles. The old concept of "ecstasy" was inclusive of all experience; it was the sum total of all possible emotions happening at once, including terror and pain.
Buckaroo, you say that "IT IS NOT WISDOM THAT WILL DO ANYTHING POSITIVE FOR YOU AS A HUMAN." (cut'n'paste quote) I would disagree, since your worldview has at least partly been shaped by these experiences, and gaining a deeper understanding of the world is, to me, positive (though it may be painful). From my own experience I know that glimpsing Hell is beyond description, but I am thankful for the times when I have done so, if only for the perspective it has given me. It's a "Know thine enemy" experience, and I would agree that not everyone needs to know their enemies that well! Those of us who do go and peek through the Black Gate are very well suited for helping others avoid it altogether, as you eloquently illustrated with the "rants" that came from your direct experience.
Now, how can we treat them in a way that mimicks being passed through someone and urinated back out free of toxins? Activated charcoal? Ideas, anyone? Unlike you, BB, I'm still kinda hesitant to sample that particular drink!
And thanks for taking the time to write all that out. You visited Hell and brought back something helpful for the rest of us as well as yourself...
