Questions People Ask Most
I need help. Can you help me?
That's fine. In my experience so far, no one has disagreed and been able to tell me how or why. I found they are not paying attention to the study, the premise, the findings and conclusion. They are not reading the reason for the data, what specimen were used, lab made, harvested, raw, dried, etc. Interpretation of data relies on the ability know the construction of experiments, how to read them and a basic understanding of chemistry and biology. You cannot isolate a single chart or graph and run with it.
Parts per million is not the same as parts, or grams or micromils or spectrographic results or gas chormatography. Make sure to crunch your numbers and pay attention to how it is expressed, in what measurements.
I have discussed the data from the studies from the 1990's, specifically the Korean and Japanese studies with others in the field and discussed their take on it to form my conclusions.
Always look to the most recent research and what studies it replaces. The Austin Patent replaces many studies from the 1990's. Currently Psyched Wellness is doing more cutting edge research on conversion and isolation of muscimol and I look forward to their patents and whatever research they release for peer review.
Make sure you have watched all of my videos on conversion for different purposes. In the end it is my take on the data and you are welcome to disagree.
The short answer is no. I can't give personal advice on using mushrooms or any medicines. In the US that is practicing medicine without a license. I can't tell you how to get off of medications and I can't help you dose or deal with medical issues.
I made the videos on this site being careful to use proper teminology. I made them to help everyone to the best of my ability.
I watched the videos and you don't tell me what dose to take. Why not?
The amanita muscaria mushroom is one of the most highly variable mushrooms on the planet. The amount of actives in one vary considerably. The amount any one person needs vary widely and how much one person needs from one week to the next varies. For this reason, I give how to proceed in finding your dose, in the dosing videos.
I disagree with how you intrepret some of the data.
I disagree with how you decarb your ibotenic acid.
Disagreements are good. We are in the very early stages of learning the science on this mushroom. However, the science is clear on ways to decarb. I have created many videos, not just one. There are many ways to use amanita muscaria and different methods of conversion for each use. Watch all the videos, see the science.
When will your store have more items listed?
Thank you for caring! They are labor intensive to make so I try to restock on the 20th of every month. They tend to sell out in hours though. To be notified when I am restocking, sign up for emails from me on the home page. :)
What makes you an expert on this?
That depends on your definition of an expert. I am not a mycologist or researcher. I am not a doctor or historian. So I don't claim to be able to speak on the things that they are experts on and I rely on those experts for advice.
I have a background in science, taught high school science and worked in research labs in college. I feel confident in my interpretation of data but always welcome and often ask for others' interpretation. I seek out lore and original culture's use of the mushroom and seek to learn from them. I experiment on myself.
I am in a unique position as a person with a public platform on this mushroom of having thousands of people give me input, feedback and share their personal experiences. I run my personal experiences through all of these filters.
I report on scientific findings, personal experience, anecdotal information. I leave links to what I find, on the forum and teach how and what I am doing so others can do it too.
I am an expert on the community of amanita users and an expert communicator, sharer of information and a Grand Central Station of people and information on the Amanita Muscaria.
Have You Ever Used ...?
I have a channel here called I do entheogens. So far I have used muscaria, pantherina and psilocibyn. I intend to keep trying new things.
