Most of us have stumbled upon random fascinating looking mushrooms in the wild. The beauty of these striking specimins seems to gain our attention and stimulate our curiosity. The Amanita Muscaria species is a particularly visually appealing sight to see. They are closely related to Amanita pantherina, which I'll be discussing on this page. The pantherina strain of Amanitas are darker in appearance, ranging in color from dark to light brown, or tan to dull yellow.
This variety falls under the classifications of dilerants and psychedelics. The use of these mushrooms is done so only by highly skilled professionals, such as Shamans, and curious ethnobotanist, who are very knowledgable. It should be thoroughly understood by the reader that these specimins are NOT to be confused with psilocybin containing species. Both varities have a shamanic history of use though. These Amanita pantherina mushrooms are a completely different story and one should not expect any differently.
I strongly advise against hunting your own mushrooms. Mushroom hunting is something that takes vast amounts of knowledge and caution to successfully accomplish. One wrong move when dealing with shrooms could easily land someone in a hospital, or even lead to their death. This has not stopped people from having an interest in these shrooms. I believe this is because of the mushrooms interesting history. The Shamans of central Asia and Siberia consumed them ritually, as an alternative to the Fly Agaric mushroom. Shamans have carefully used these entheogens to enter visionary states. They are considered holy by cultures around the world.
The Biochemistry Of the Amanita pantherina is very fascinating. Fungi, plants, insects and animals all contain gold mines of chemicals, which all serve their own individual purpose. These wild shrooms are no different. These strain contains psychoactive chemicals known as ibotenic acid, and muscimol. The pantherina strain contains far higher levels of muscimol than its cousin, the Amanita Muscaria. Muscimol itself is considered an oneirogen.
Because of the reported oneirogenic (dream inducing) properties of the active muscimol alkaloid produced by these mushrooms, my curiosity is through the roof. I decided to make a tincture using everclear and the ground up caps. My goal wasn't to "trip" or get any kind of psychedelic effects. My intention was to use very small doses of around one to three drops in a small shot of water before bed to stimulate my dream experiences. I was thoroughly impressed with the results. Learn how to recall your dreams in the morning though, before you begin your quest as an oneironaut. Everyone dreams every night, the trick is remembering it.
Common names: False Blusher ( due to its similarity to the true Blusher mushroom )
