For my first post I've decided to share what took me roughly an hour of listening to videos (no captions = bad for someone who's hearing impaired) to record information that honestly, should be easily accessible. I considered briefly not making this post, but I'm not a gate keeper, and I am against gate keeping information in general. Gate keeping at it's worst is anti harm-reduction, and that's irresponsible.
Many of you who come here are probably looking for a safe way to consume Amanita Muscaria. All the information I could find via this site is from the videos found here:
And honestly, it's in a painful to digest format, and although videos are great, it shouldn't feel like attempting a labyrinth to find information. It feels like gate keeping information.
I enjoyed your recipe videos, they were fun and light hearted, you looked like you were enjoying yourself.
I'm going to preface this next part by saying that using only this forums search and the videos on the site above, I could not easily find dosage information, nor was I able to easily locate a text guide like the one I've typed below; information like that should be easy to locate in a pinned post (or several) for the sake of harm-reduction.
So, here we are, and here's the summarized text version of the preparation methods spanning 3ish videos:
How To Decarboxylate ( & Brew) Tea:
https://www.amanitadreamer.net/general- ... p-kwm9c7v0
- 0. Sterilize all containers using a dishwasher
1. 1 cup distilled water (250ml) into pot
2. 15 grams of dried Amanita, the more caps the better! (Notes A, B)
3. Boil water in small pot, bring down to a simmer
4. Simmer caps for 20 minutes
5. Pour the water through a coffee filter (Note C) into a STERILE jar.
6. Break up the tea into fourths and freeze ¾ of your containers; DO NOT ADD LEMON. (Notes D, E)
7. With your remaining ¼ add lemon juice (Note E).
https://www.amanitadreamer.net/general- ... -kwm9c7v0
- 1. Collect multiple caps (Note B)
2. While fresh rake out the gills
3. Dry them with heat @ 72C (155-160F) to convert Ibotenic acid (Note A)
4. Once dried, break off pieces of each cap, and grind to a fine powder
5. Measure your dose
6. Place remainder in a sterile glass jar with a desiccant
7. Store in a cool dark place
8. Put your measured dose in your bong or pipe or vaporizer and inhale it!
A: Dried above 72c 155-160F. Heat required for converting Ibotenic acid. 30% conversion occurs.
B: Amount of Ibotenic acid can vary from one cap to another by as much as 600% (a hot dose)
C: Tea color should range from cc6641 - d16947 - e0890 - e6a178
D: Not frozen will last a week.
E: See Lemon Tek Video.
Need more than one sterilization method, whole video on sterilization.
Is there a reason to not specify sterile 'glass' containers that are air-tight?
"Fourths"? - 'Quarters' is less confusing vernacular for most of today's generation.
Drink as is?
How much of each cap to break off?
Weight of dose?
How to determine dose?
Live long and prosper,
