Eastern European Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria) Grade A Mushrooms caps only, no stems. Eastern European Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria) are mushrooms which contain the chemicals ibotenic acid and muscimol and are the oldest entheogen known to man. They have a long history of use in Asia and Northern Europe. They are best known for their distinctive bright red appearance with white spots. The Vikings used the Amanita Muscaria to enter the “berserker” state for battle. These Eastern European Fly Agarics are cured at source, they are picked and taken to special drying chambers 170-200F this process turns some ibotenic acid into muscimol which is believed to be most active.

U.S. state law
Effective Aug 8, 2005 (signed into law Jun 28, 2005) Louisiana Act No 159 makes 40 plants illegal, including Amanita muscaria, when intended for human consumption. The law specifically excludes the “possession, planting, cultivation, growing, or harvesting” of these plants if used “strictly for aesthetic, landscaping, or decorative purposes.” (Text of HLS_05RS-52 and Update June 2005)
Tennessee did not pass the proposed bill that would have banned dozens of plants as “hallucinogenic” when intended for human consumption. Instead, they banned only Salvia divinorum. See Comments on New State Laws Controlling the Consumption of Hallucinogenic Plants.
