Why is muscimol so desired?

Post by sb_stefan » Mon Oct 05, 2020 5:06 pm

I watched a video from Amanita Dreamer where she took a bite of a raw Amanita and seemed to enjoy several benefits from the ibotanic acid, but in all other videos she talks about how obtaining muscimol is the goal of the whole process. What makes it so special and how does the effect differ from ibo?

Thanks in advance.

ibotenic acid gets negative effects at a lower dose than muscimol but there are still dose dependent positive effects of ibotenic acid. Typically you want it just not much of it and it depends on the effects you are going for.

muscimol is the GABA agonist and ibotenic acid is the NMDA agonist and NDMA agonism seems to give negative effects that are pretty bad if you get too much

I've had several experiences with Amanita so far. To me, microdosing unconverted stuff is more effective. I feel like that's because of the stronger effects of ibotenic acid.
But I'm telling this based on my limited experience, so I may change my opinions as I gain more experience. Although it's important as everyone says to convert it into muscimol if you're going to do higher doses.

How much do you microdose amanita? and how often? Do you eat a bite raw like @amanitadreamer did in her video?
Im very interested in trying, but i feel like taking very small steps and get to know and truly bond with this beautiful beast :)
