Fly Agaric will teach you to set your limits - Amanita Muscaria

Imagine this: You're out in the forest and you stumble upon a fiery red fly agaric mushroom. Do you think: "Hmm, tasty snack?" Oh, please no! This cheeky chap is full of ibotenic acid, and if you gobble it up raw, you'll turn greener than an envious frog and embark on a rollercoaster ride of nausea. Eat one mushroom and you're down for the count; eat several and the fly agaric might just pull the plug – no kidding!

But don't let that get you down, because this mushroom can also be your best bud. You just need to treat it right. Drying is the magic trick! It's like a fairy tale: the ibotenic acid transforms into muscimol when dried - just like a frog turning into a princess.

Now, muscimol is a completely different game. In small doses, it offers both no complaint, and a lot of advantages that are, literally, immediately noticeable! Not like those other medicinal mushrooms that leave you wondering whether they're doing anything at all or if it's just the placebo effect.

Let me share a bit of my daily life with you: When I sip my morning coffee, I'm briefly on cloud nine. But after some time, I fall faster than a stone in freefall. Muscimol, on the other hand, my friend, keeps my mood pleasantly high and safely carries me through the workday. It's like a gentle wave of creativity and calm joy.

What I really appreciate is the stability. No sudden highs and lows, just a pleasant and steady flow of well-being. You can stay active all day, and in the evening you don't collapse into bed like a fallen tree, but gently drift off to sleep and have colorful dreams.

And the best part is, you wake up fresh and cheerful! I take a capsule with 0.35 mg per day, and after a week, I felt that I didn't need more.

Muscimol also has a cumulative effect. Some take it for a month and the effect continues even after the end of the course. The only "side effect" is that the fly agaric prevents you from lying and encourages you to set boundaries with your fellow human beings. You just have to catch this key moment, just before you explode, and handle with a trespasser delicately. One could say, it makes you more honest and respectful - pretty cool for a mushroom, right?
