The History of Amanita MuscariaThe history of Amanita Muscaria in traditional medicine and shamanic rituals dates back thousands of years. This mushroom is native to Europe, Asia, and North America, and has been used by indigenous tribes for its psychoactive properties. The Koryak people of Siberia, for instance, have a long history of using Amanita in their spiritual ceremonies. They believed that the mushroom had the ability to connect them with the spirit world and bring them closer to their gods. The Vikings of Scandinavia also have a rich history of using Amanita for their religious ceremonies. They called the mushroom "Odin's mushroom" and believed that it gave them strength and wisdom. The ancient Romans and Greeks also documented the use of Amanita in their religious and medicinal practices. Some even believe that the idea of Santa Claus and his flying reindeer stems from early experiences with this mushroom. Some have even come to believe that the Amanita Muscaria mushroom is the “Divine Mushroom of Immortality” or the Soma that was described in the Vedas centuries ago!
Amanita Muscaria Gummies Effects
In modern times, Amanita Muscaria has gained popularity as a natural supplement due to its potential mood, focus, and creativity-enhancing qualities. Effects can vary depending on the dosage. In large amounts, Amanita Muscaria can produce intense hallucinations and when taken in small doses, or microdoses, it can produce a range of other positive results. One of the primary benefits of Amanita Muscaria is relaxation. The mushroom contains the main psychoactive substance known as muscimol, which binds to GABA receptors in the brain, producing calming and relaxing effects that can reduce stress and anxiety, promoting overall well-being. This property has made Amanita Muscaria a popular choice in shamanic rituals to induce altered states of consciousness. Amanita Muscaria has also been reported to enhance cognitive function. Users have reported improved focus and concentration, making it easier to complete tasks and stay on track. This benefit is thought to result from the mushroom's ability to boost cerebral blood flow and stimulate the release of neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin. In addition to these benefits, Amanita Muscaria has been found to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. This makes it a potential natural remedy for pain relief and inflammation. It's still important to remember, however, that Amanita Muscaria is a potent psychoactive substance. The mushroom can be harmful if consumed in large doses, and it's crucial to obtain it from a reputable source.
The Amanita Muscaria Experience
The Amanita Muscaria experience is often characterized as having three different stages, as outlined below.
ONSET: The Amanita experience begins with the onset stage. During the first 30 min. to an hour after ingestion (depending on when they last ate), users typically notice sedation setting in, metamorphosizing in the form of yawns and a general "sleepiness". Users often start to feel body effects during this stage as well (pain relief and relaxation).
JOURNEY: The journey of the Amanita Muscaria experience is different for all individuals and it depends on how much is consumed and what variation. Typically, this stage can last 3-4 hours or more. Some users have reported the following positive effects: euphoria, pain relief, relaxation or entering a dream state, out-of-body experiences, internal dialogue, synesthesia, clarity, and sociability. Some negative effects experienced by users include muscle twitching, occasional loss of equilibrium (balance), increased salivation/perspiration, and moderate to severe stomach upset/cramps. Some companies, like Shroom Living, take careful consideration to minimize the amount of ibotenic acid in their final product. This helps with the nausea and upset stomach that can occur with the raw mushroom itself. So, if you're enjoying Shroom Living Amanita Gummies, you'll have a more enjoyable experience!
SLEEP/DREAMS: As the effects reach their climax, many users may find the effects and the relaxation overpowering and drift off to sleep. It's generally suggested that users plan to sleep after the experience, as most users also state that it's some of the best sleep they've ever had! Users typically have vivid dreams following an Amanita Muscaria experience, and some argue it's the dreams that make the journey so profound.
