Amanita muscaria is increasingly popular in popular culture and real legend, albeit it's listed as a poison for the FDA and can't be sold for consumption in any way. Also, because numerous websites appear with articles that look like they'll have something to try to to with offering information on extracting fly agaric, it's challenging to seek out information about techniques that will efficiently remove the active components from this elusive plant. So, before we proceed any longer, we'd like to form it clear that any amanita extraction information we offer is solely for educational purposes, and isn't intended as a guide for putting this information into practice in any way. Bold experiments with this mushroom can lead to severe consequences.
The active ingredients in The Amanita Muscaria are ibotenic acid, muscimol, and muscarine. After ingestion, a small portion of ibotenic acid is decarboxylated in the muscimol, causing intoxication. Reportedly, the foremost effective way for this conversion to require a place is thru the physical body itself. In old texts where we discover accounts of Amanita ingestion, people would wait at the feet of the one that ingested the Amanita (usually royalty), expecting them to urinate out the Amanita! Curiously enough, the most straightforward known conversion for ibotenic acid to muscimol happens within the physical body itself, and therefore the correctly converted psychoactive compound excretes through the urine. So, drinking the urine of the one that just ingested the Amanita, provided a person with equivalent experience. However, i don't know anyone, including myself, who would resort to the present practice if Amanita's effects were desired. Again, fly agaric is listed as a poison, so don't try extracting fly agaric for any reason, period.
In today's increasingly uncertain world, it is often difficult to understand what quite educational information is often presented. Extracting Amanitas for incense purposes and using fly agaric for decorations is world-wide. Obtaining fly agaric for private consumption is another story entirely. We want to teach, but we also don't want, in any way, to form it seem as if we promote extracting Amanita caps in any way, so for now, this information won't be included during this article or on this website.
