Tripping on amanita with a full decarb is the common and misguided advice on the internet. Microdosing
or using full muscimol in the beginning is bad advice. Here's the thing about this mushr
oom. Most of you that want to trip on this mushroom think that you're just supposed to go full muscimol and get rid of all the ibotenic acid, and that that's what you trip on. So, let me tell you that that's not true. It's not that you've been lied to, it's just that they didn't know either and there's a lot of misinformation. That's not to say that you can't trip on a full muscimol experience, but I'm telling you that's not where all the fun is. That's just misinformation and not the best experience that you can have. There are a lot of experiences to be had on this mushroom, and I can tell you now that a full muscimol experience is not the most fun, not the most insightful, is the most painful, but will give you the most growth. So, if you want to learn about this mushroom, let me divide it up. If you're just here to experience the mushroom and have fun with it, that's fine. But I'm telling you that the full muscimol experience isn't the way to do it. It's going to be in the middle, and yes, you're going to have to work with ibotenic acid. I have a video in this playlist for different conversions (I change the title so it may be different now). Please find and watch that video. I also have other videos specifically on ibotenic acid and why it's not bad, or an enemy. This is all new information, and not everyone is informed correctly, so please watch those videos as well.
If you are only after the quickest, easiest experience with this mushroom, then this mushroom is going to weed you out, because that's not what this mushroom is. This mushroom offers so much, but you've got to slow down, take your time and find the best way to use it. You'll wind up using it in many different ways because as you grow, it grows. You'll have to take your time. If that's unacceptable to you, then this mushroom probably isn't for you. I believe this is why there's a generally negative opinion about it, because just using the full muscimol experience is going to make you angry. You'll either have a bad experience and become resentful, or it's going to do what I talked about with the negative side of amanita. I have a whole playlist on the "dark side" of amanita. I highly stress that you go inform yourself and watch that playlist, because if you do too many full muscimol trips you're not gonna have a good experience of it.
If you do it correctly in that middle ground, it takes time to find what your dose is. This mushroom is very subtle yet powerful in small doses, building up over time and becoming very profound. You can get to very profound experiences with this thing, I believe it is a psychedelic. There are many senses we don't even know about anymore that have gone dormant that will open up and activate, and then you will understand that this mushroom is totally psychedelic.
Patience is key in finding what works best for you. If you're impatient, you will absolutely have a negative experience. Slow down, learn, take your time and find out what works, all the information on what to use it for is here for you to find. I believe this is the one that everyone should start with, and I believe you will get more out of it than psilocibin and ayahuasca. I believe those are for emergency situations for people that are in dire need and about to fall of a cliff. Those will get you back upright, then you're supposed come here and slow down, learn, and grow with this thing. Just go to the prep playlist and watch. Learn about different reasons to use different things, watch the stuff about the dark side of this mushroom, and this is just to prepare yourself. After that, you can go into the how-to-prepare playlist, then into the dosing playlist. The sooner the better, so just start. This can become your playground, if you allow it. Again, if you are on the fast track to the quickest most fun trip, this mushroom will reject you and it will not be kind. But it loves you, and it doesn't want you to treat it that way, and it doesn't want you to have a bad experience, so don't misuse it. I hope this helps you find your place among the amanita!
