How to Know if You're Buying Quality Amanita Muscaria Products

Amanita Muscaria and muscimol products might be fairly new to the market, but the demand for these legal psychedelics has business booming. With so many options out there, we know how important it is to choose a quality Amanita Muscaria product from a reputable seller. We’ve put together a quick checklist so that no matter where you shop, you’ll be able to find the best quality products that will give you a safe and enjoyable experience.

Amanita Muscaria and muscimol products might be fairly new to the market, but the demand for these legal psychedelics has business booming.

1. Natural Mushroom Extract

Amanita Muscaria, or the Fly Agaric mushroom, can be found growing in the wild all over the world (although eating them without the proper preparation could leave you with some unpleasant stomach upset). For bulk quantities, the mushroom likely needs to be imported, which leads to higher costs. Some companies have taken to creating synthetic muscimol to create a more affordable product. However, synthetic muscimol lacks the beneficial entourage effect (the combination of compounds working together) and can be harmful at higher doses.

Make sure to shop extracts made from the entire fruiting body of the mushroom to get the full benefits of Amanita Muscaria and to help avoid potential negative side effects.

2. Solventless Extraction

There are a few different methods for creating an Amanita Muscaria extract: grinding into a powder, using a solvent, or a solventless extraction method. Both creating a powder and using a solvent have their drawbacks. With the powder method, you’re getting the entire mushroom, including ibotenic acid, which is the compound that causes the traditional stomach upset associated with these kinds of mushroom products. With solvents, it can’t be heated high enough to completely cook off the solvent without destroying the muscimol. Those trace amounts of solvents, like methanol, can also make you kind of sick with headaches and nausea.

Solventless extraction is the best way to take all of the good stuff from the fruiting body of the mushroom, removing the ibotenic acid and preserving the good compounds that give Amanita Muscaria its unique benefits, like the potential for calm, relaxation, and even a slight sense of euphoria.

3. Potency

This is a highly personal decision based on the type of experience you’re looking to have. If you’re hoping for more of a “microdosing” experience, then something like a 500mg gummy would do the trick. If you’re looking to experience a more robust version of the Amanita Muscaria benefits, then 3500mg might be the way to go.

Whatever dose you decide to go with, just make sure they offer third-party testing and certificates of analysis to confirm the potency and make sure there are not any undisclosed additives, like THC, to boost the effects.

4. Purity

Third-party testing isn’t just important for demonstrating the potency of the Amanita Muscaria extract but also for confirming the absence of anything negative like pesticides, heavy metals, solvents, or mycotoxins. Having a pure, natural product helps make sure you have a positive experience and enjoy all of the benefits of this wonderful little mushroom.
