Amanita Muscaria Plant Medicine

Amanita muscaria AKA Fly Agaric

“It’s a very salutary thing to realize that the rather dull universe in which most of us spend most of our time is not the only universe that there is. I think it’s healthy that people should have this experience.” – Aldous Huxley

It is believed that this exotic mushroom is extremely poisonous, yet there are very few occurrences of death whilst using it. Amanita muscaria, commonly known as the fly agaric or fly amanita, is a type of muscimol mushroom. It is native to the northern hemisphere and many theories point towards the ingestion of this mushroom to be the creative force behind middle eastern religions due to its immense hallucinogenic properties and spiritual encounters.

This muscimol mushroom has an ancient history of use dating back thousands of years.  Certain tribes would drink or save their urine after ingesting the mushroom, as its psychoactive properties are passed through the urine and can be consumed multiple times to produce the same effects with no loss of potency. In ritualistic use, it is used to go deep, face demons, have intense spiritual experiences and out of body experiences and to induce trances within a ceremonial context.
