    you know, what the hell is wrong with good ol regular psilocybin mushroom that won't kill you if you eat too much and still give you a great trip.

    it's irresponsible to start encouraging people to take amanita.

      I heard that in the USA amanita is mostly toxin and a little psychoactive alkaloid, where as in Europe and Asia amanita is more psychoactive, and less toxin. I.ve seen someone taken off on a stretcher by helicopter from eating amanite, but hat was the white one I think.

        yes, amanitas can be difficult to tell apart, and some of them are deadly. do not consume ANY amanita mushrooms unless you really know what you are doing.

        BUT, it seems like the original post is encouraging education, not indiscriminate mushroom consumption.

      This post is just SPAM'

      you know, what the hell is wrong with good ol regular psilocybin mushroom that won't kill you if you eat too much and still give you a great trip.

      it's irresponsible to start encouraging people to take amanita.

      Chris' Why' is it irresponsible'

      Ibotic acid and Muscamol are not poisonious'
      So the Amanita Muscaria is not dangerious at all'

      It is irresponsible folks making money from false information' this book is full of crap information of which very little of which is factual'

      The fruits of the tree of life is not this mushroom'

      Jesus is not this muchroom either'

      Wasson didn't even eat Amanita'

      Teeter bases this work on of what Wasson said and also studies of Latin'
      Of which I might add is not old enough for him to have got the correct picture from'

      The writtings of the Rig Veda, originaly, are only scraps of the full texts that survived the destruction of the temples'
      The text is written as of someone elses translation from original sacred Hebrew text'
      The Vedics only ha scraps of the original to work from so they aed their own artistic licence to the writtings'

      Good ole psilocybin is not Muscamol'
      the visions are completely different'

      Knowedge is power'

      Bliss'

    what i can't find anywhere is wtf is the reason you would want to take the stuff? holy grail and immortality, um hmm yeah right. look at that website lol.

    try stating upfront what the stuff actually does scientifically and why we should want to risk our health taking it.

    Amanita Muscaria is an obvious find. Quite apart from 'other' Amanita species.
    When I was a kid, it opened me to the Forest. (Yeah raw (&rough)).

    Immortality is the Soul's Journey. I cannot believe that it can be in a 'temporal' body.

    Personnaly, I wouldn't care for any more psychotropics. (apart, maybe, Aya...)(which I haven't tried.)

    Love,

    Isn't the more common name of the "Amanita Muscaria" the "Destroying Angel?" A name it acquired due to its extreme toxicity and tendency to kill anyone who eats even a small part of it.

      no, that's amanita virosa.

          There are lots of species of Amanitas. A. muscaria will give a psychedlic experience, maybe more if you don't know what you're doing. A. pantherina is sometimes confused with it but you definitely don't want that one in you. The most dangerous Amanitas are the ones that contain toxins that destroy the liver and kidneys. Amanita phalloides (Death cap) and Amanita virosa (Destroying angel) are two examples. Poisoning starts with pain and vomiting several hours after eating. This passes and people generally think they're better. But during the meantime the toxins are destroying the liver and kidneys. Caesar's amanita on the other hand is a beautiful and delicious mushroom and completely edible. But it has look-alikes so Amanitas should only be collected by people who really know what they're doing, otherwise you might end up shopping for a new liver. And I hear they're expensive...;)

          I understand that--but I believe that it would be immoral to not question the posts about A. Muscaria being an Herb of Immortality as so far as I know all the Aminitas are lethally poisonous. I would never recommend suing them in any manner.

            Thu, February 28, 2008 - 4:23 PM
            All the amanitas are not lethally poisonous. Amanita Muscaria might be a puker if you don't prepare it correctly, or an individual might be allergic to it. Spring Amanita whose id is probably better left to the pro, is a prized culinary mushroom. There are other Amanitas that are not poisonous as well.

              Exactly, Amanitas can be both poisonous and some of the supposedly most delicious mushrooms depending on the species.

              I haven't personally tried any kind, but my brother eats Amanita Muscaria and he says that it is delicious and he hasn't had any ill effects from it at all. He just cooks it. Maybe someday I'll try it.

                  So Chris, can you tell me of why you think Amanita Muscaria to be not regular safe mushrooms?

                    Because i can't find one study that shows it does anything good for you the way say Shitake or Maitake do. It also seems that if you are not careful it kills your ass, seems like a high risk for not.

                      Refer me to one study claiming it'll kill ya dead. Folks have used this mushroom for thousands of years. It's maligned because of it's psychoactive compounds. I'm not advocating it's use, but just because it's psychoactive doesn't mean it's not beneficial.

                        Deaths from A. muscaria are extremely rare. A historical journal article reported two fatalities occurring in North America. [48] ((^ Cagliari GE. (1897). Mushroom Poisoning. Medical Record 52: 298.) With modern medical treatment the prognosis is generally good.[49] A fatal dose has been calculated at approximately 15 fly agaric caps,[50] although the amount and ratio of chemical compounds per mushroom varies widely from region to region, season to season, further confusing the issue. It has been reported that spring and summer mushrooms may contain up to 10 times as much ibotenic acid and muscimol compared to fall fruitings.

                        refer me to one study saying it does anything good for you health wise that safer mushroom can't.

                          Really, anyone dumb enough to eat 15 caps of anything...

                          I was on my way to gathering info on how the mushroom's been used in "folk medicine" for thousands of years by cultures from Siberia to China to India; how it was possibly the Soma mentioned in the Rig Veda; how it is even probably the source of out Santy Claus icon. But really, I have too may things on the fire.

                          But I'm not a preacher for the benefits of Amanita Muscaria. If you're not interested in the mushroom, stay away from it. There's plenty of literature out there extolling its benefits if you're ever interested. No biggee.

        Here it's Am. Panthera, it's all white & yes, deadly.

        Mark cobblers bro'

        Hey before I go into this rant, folks this internet will still be here as of when you all snuff it, for your childen and your childrens children'

        If you post crap on the internet, of what does it say about you'

        Amanita Pantherina is not poisonious' it is a possible three times stronger than Amanita Muscaria, it is brown not white'

        Death cap Amanita phalloides is deadly' It is white it is called the pale rider'

        Amanita phalloides is one of the most poisonous of all known toadstools. It has been involved in the majority of human deaths from mushroom poisoning, possibly including the deaths of Roman Emperor Claudius and Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI. It has been the subject of much research, and many of its biologically active agents have been isolated. The principal toxic constituent is α-amanitin, which damages the liver and kidneys, often fatally. No antidote is known.

        The genus Amanita contains about 600 species of agarics' many of them edible, many of them poisonious'

        Knowledge is power'

          Okay. Quite sorry. Thanks for the 'setting aright'.

          But, the 'white one' in the Canadian Shield is know to be so very very poisonous...
          as in 'not enough time to go to hospital for total stomach cleaning.

          I've heard a story of two couples, all 'reknowed' mushroom experts:
          They all died over their diner one evening...

        A. pantherina is not all white and can be deadly or hallucinogenic, just like muscaria.

          Tue, April 8, 2008 - 8:31 AM


          A. Pantharina is brown and has never killed anyone'

          Muscamol is a great anti-deppressant' it elivates amongst othe things' acetolcholine levels in the brain'
          Aids in sleep, is also a very powerful psychadelic'

          You children amaze me that you know nothing of the true nature of these shrooms' just cos they don't contain HO-DMT' and they can make you throw up, you say they will kill you'

          To all of you that say this I say bollocks' Ayahuasca will make you chuck throughemotion' ground shaking' loss of ego'

          Muscamol does not give you nausia, because it is such a high freaking experience, you lose your body and mind to the experience'

          The largest amount of Amanita I have ingested is 36 grams fresh, dry roasted on an open fire then boiled for fifteen minutes, I ate the lot' was gone for nearly two days'
          No nausia at all'

          So all you folks just don't know of what you are doing'

          I picked 50 caps last year' and I have been partaking of them ever since'

          Immense body strenght' awesome nites sleep, no lagging feeling of old age at all'

          Why do you think this chap called it the heb of imortality, even though he and many others are totally out of wack and haven't got a clue of what they are talking about'

          Amanita muscaria and many amanitas are not poisonious' OK'

          Squeeze the juice out of one good size head of Amanita Muscaria'

          Poor the juice into a spoon, heat it with a lighter until it boils, drink that and tell me it is poisonious and also makes you chuck up'

          You chuck cos you don't convert the Ibotic acid in the shroom to muscomol is all'

          As to them being of no health value'

          They help eleviate the pain of withdrawal' aid sleep' bring awesome clarity to the mind' help the body to heal by increasing nitrogen within the protein chain' awesome muscle relaxant' also make you as strong as an ox'

          So all of these properties are useless he?

          He he he Kids to day' eh he'

    on a side note here is something Dr. Weil said about the shroom...

    "R. Gordon Wasson theorized that the plant "soma" in the Rig Veda is mushrooms.
    I don’t believe that. I have a very strong opinion on that, and I don’t believe it. Wasson made the case that this was Amanita muscaria based on linguistic grounds. I think he was dead wrong. I think there are much better candidates that probably were indole-containing plants. "
