How to Determine Your Amanita Muscaria Gummies Dosage

How to Determine Your Amanita Muscaria Gummies Dosage

Aug 4, 2023 | 0 comments

A new magic mushroom is making headlines and gaining popularity across the world, especially in the United States – and all because these beautifully blissful boomers are legal. (Well, that’s one of the reasons!) Amanita Mushrooms – specifically the Amanita Muscaria species – are a psychedelic mushroom native to the Northern hemisphere, having also been introduced to the Southern hemisphere from the cultivation of birch, fir, and conifer trees.

With its bright red caps covered with white spots, white spores, and white stems, this mushroom is one of the most recognizable fungi across the globe. Also referred to as “fly agaric” these shrooms deviate from the standard magic mushrooms due to the difference in psychoactive compounds that make them what they are. The “regular” magic mushrooms contain psilocybin whereas Amanita mushrooms contain muscimol, ibotenic acid, and muscarine

In this article, we’ll uncover what amanita mushroom gummies are, what the effects feel like, and how to find your proper dosage. Let’s dive in!

Understanding Amanita mushroom gummies and dosage

Like any psychedelic fungi, the potency of Amanita Muscaria mushrooms largely depends on the amount you’re starting with and then the amount consumed. For raw Amanita mushrooms, a low dose is commonly noted as being 1-5g which equals around ½ to one full mushroom cap. An average dose is considered to be roughly one to three mushroom caps with an estimated total of 5-10g.

These amounts, as mentioned above, are for raw mushroom caps which we highly advise against eating. Raw, unprepared Amanita mushrooms are more toxic than when they’ve been properly decarboxylated along with being more prone to causing serious gastrointestinal upset or an allergic reaction to proteins in raw mushrooms. (Decarboxlyated is the scientific term for a carbon atom to be removed from a carbon chain due to being heated up and/or eaten.)

When it comes to appropriately prepared Amanita mushroom gummies, potency can vary depending on the amount of Amanita mushrooms found within each gummy. In general, these amounts are on the lower dose side of the spectrum, ranging anywhere from 350mg to 1000mg of Amanita mushrooms per gummy. Starting small is the safest way to try Amanita mushroom gummies to best understand how the effects impact you and if they’re ideal.

Having total control over the amount of mushroom you’re consuming by taking them in gummy form allows you to accurately and consistently dial in your perfect dosage, knowing what to expect after establishing a solid baseline of effects for yourself.

Amanita Muscaria Mushroom Gummies Dosage

It’s pivotal to perform your due diligence when researching companies selling Amanita Muscaria gummies to confirm that the business is reputable, has positive overall and product reviews, and is crystal clear with what’s in their products and how they’re made.

Part of this transparency should include the exact amount of Amanita extract per gummy, recommended dosage, and lab tests to verify the presence of psychoactive compounds. Dosage recommendations will have some variation between companies but watch for any that are well outside of the general range we mentioned, 350mg – 1000mg per gummy. 

Different dosages will produce different effects, so starting small and adding to this as needed or desired is key in achieving the results you’re seeking. (More on this below, keep reading!)

In general, if you’re completely unfamiliar with Amanita mushroom gummies, it’s best to start with ½ gummy to establish a starting off point. It may seem tempting to go all in but if you’re new this could result in an unfavorable experience! But always refer to your product’s labeling and packaging for proper dosage amounts. 

If you’re familiar with Amanita mushroom gummies having previously tried them and operating on an already-established baseline, trying 1-2 full gummies to experiment with the effects of higher doses may be the best option for you. 

We can’t stress enough that starting slow and increasing your dosage ½ gummy at a time is the safest and most efficient way to dial in exactly what the best dosage will be for you.

Individual Considerations for Amanita Muscaria Gummies Dosage

Remember this… everyone is different, so everyone should expect to have a different experience. Everything from dosage, to metabolism, to body weight comes into play. Some users are more sensitive to psychoactive compounds, causing minor effects to feel more powerful than they might to the majority of others. Your individual height and weight influences your metabolism which, in turn, directly impacts how long it takes for you to feel the effects and how profound (or gentle) they will be for you. 

Another important circumstance to examine is if you have any pre-existing medical conditions or are taking any prescription medications. Combining Amanita mushroom gummies with other medications could result in an adverse and potentially dangerous reaction. Talk with your healthcare provider before trying Amanita mushroom gummies if you have any pre-existing medical conditions or are currently taking any prescribed medications. Safety is always top priority so make sure you get the a-ok from your doctor! 

All of these factors are important to consider before you begin taking Amanita mushroom gummies and deciding what the proper dosage is for you. The general rule of thumb to follow: Start low, start slow.

Amanita Muscaria Gummies Safety Precautions and Best Practices

Whether you’re a seasoned Amanita mushroom gummy user or this is your first time, there are best practices to follow when enjoying these magical mushrooms. 

1. Pick a safe environment

It’s important to enjoy these treats in an environment that is safe and comfortable for the entire duration of the ride. This magical and enlightening experience should be just that – taking a gummy while in an area that’s uncomfortable or unfamiliar can potentially ruin your experience and cause discomfort. You’ve likely heard the term “bad trip” – we advise doing everything you can to avoid that. 

2. Don’t drive, stay put and relax

This rule is pretty straightforward: Don’t get behind the wheel and don’t operate heavy machinery. Amanita mushroom gummies can alter your visual and auditory senses, making driving dangerous for you and other people on the road. The best course of action is to take your Amanita mushroom dosage and chill!

3. Don’t mix with alcohol or other substances

Some people might be tempted to experiment with having a drink or partaking in other mind-altering substances along with Amanita mushroom gummies but we highly advise against this. Mixing these gummies with other party favors can bring on a slew of unwanted or undesirable side effects, pushing into the realm of being potentially dangerous. Safety is the name of the game – stick with only Amanita mushrooms when you take them, save the other stuff for another time. 

4. Have a trip-sitter with you

Well, maybe not an actual babysitter but have a close friend or someone you trust to keep you company while you enjoy your trip. (We’ll call them your tripsitter!) If you’re new to Amanita mushroom gummies it can be overwhelming at first while you adjust to the effects and how they impact you. It can be extremely helpful to have a dependable companion with you to keep you calm, talk through anything you’re experiencing, and be a fun distraction to enhance your experience. Call your BFF, set a date, make sure to repay the favor!

5. Be aware of potential negative side effects

More often than not, people have a wonderfully illuminating experience after consuming Amanita mushroom gummies, enjoying the numerous benefits they have to offer. However, there are risks involved along with possible negative side effects which are important to be aware of. Don’t be afraid though: The majority of negative side effects come from overdoing it and consuming large amounts of Amanita mushrooms, in gummy form or otherwise, which we don’t suggest doing!

Some negative side effects can include nausea, stomach pain, dizziness, confusion, anxiety, discomfort, feeling overwhelmed or frightened, muscle spasms, or anxiety. While these symptoms will likely pass on their own – this is only temporary, remind yourself of that! – if you do experience severe vomiting or diarrhea, tachycardia or bradycardia (heart beating rapidly or irregularly, heart beating too slow), develop a rash, or have difficulty breathing, call 911 immediately and seek medical assistance. While rare, some people can have an allergic reaction – which is another reason to start with a low dose of Amanita mushroom gummies.

If you are on any medications or have a pre-existing medical condition it’s absolutely necessary to talk to a medical professional. Mixing Amanita mushroom gummies with any medication can increase the overall toxicity of the mushroom along with amplifying side effects from either one of the substances. Drug interactions should be taken seriously and handled under professional guidance before diving into the realm of Amanita mushroom gummies.
