Poisonous sometimes means fun and educating. :twisted:

Much of what we are told is poisonous is for protections sake. That’s why self education is so important. Having said that, swim has had only sedative and dizzying effects from amanita.

BTW, nice avatar Boost... lol

Yeah, it can have a lot of meanings (toxic/intoxicate...). I suppose my parents just didn't know any better. But some of the things they label dangerous are just because they compete too well with marketed and taxed products, other times because they are too widely available to be controlled (strong). Some of these healing plants really hit a glass ceiling, they do best flying just under the radar. Nice 'shrooms, I always loved the look of the pretty red and white fungus in all the cartoons I grew up watching. Haven't tried any though.. :(

Very true. Its our parents job to take care of us until we can care for ourselves.
There are a few good vendors that sell some amanita around here, and some that sell not so impressive shrooms.
PM me if you want my opinion on a vendor.

Thanks! I am aware of one vendor that has a whole bunch of it freshly in stock. Not sure if this belongs here but I wonder if someone like me should give a little bit a try. I understand it's in a little different category than what I am used to (typical herbal blends with mostly predictable uplifting or relaxing aroma). Not sure if I want to check out other dimensions.... maybe a tiny tiny bit could work nice? I am already a complicated guy as is lol

We all are complicated, thats just how we were made.
Its up to you, and only you to answer that question.
But I can guarantee you this, if you start very low, you have nothing to be afraid of. The only thing that made me scared was my anticipation, and its almost always higher than the actual effects...

if you start low, its basically like nothing will happen, or you will exp. very little, and then continue upping it until you notice something, evaluate that something, is it good, or bad, if good, keep upping the amount.. if bad, find a new ethno
