Amanita Muscaria, otherwise known as the Fly Agaric or Fly Amanita, is an entheogenic mushroom with effects similar to dissociatives, deliriants, and benzodiazepines. It grows usually during the summer in humid regions under pine trees. Though unpopular in most spheres, there is an entire subculture devoted to it's recreational/spiritual use, and it has been known to be used by certain popular figures such as post-modernist author Thomas Pynchon and American author and ethnomycologist R. Gordon Wasson. It is also said to have been used by indigenous tribes of Siberia, and is rumored to be both the Soma talked about in the Rig Veda of India, and to provide the roots (or hyphae, rather) of Christmas today.


The two chemicals active in Amanita Muscaria that are attributed to it's recreational merit, otherwise known as toxicity, are ibotenic acid and muscimol. Extrapolation needed


Muscimol and ibotenic acid are agonists of GABA and glutamate receptors, respectively, the former behaving like a neurotransmitter for GABAA (explaining benzodiazepine effects) and the latter behaving like a neurotransmitter for NMDA (which would explain dissociative effects) and metabotropic glutamate receptors. Muscarine, another chemical found in the mushroom was originally thought to be the active ingredient in its recreational use because it binds with muscarinic acetylcholine receptors, but because it is present in such small amounts it is generally treated as insignificant.
