MusciMind Gummies - Muscimol Mushroom Extract + Nootropic Blend - 10 gummies per bag
These Koi brand MusciMind gummies combine Muscimol with a proprietary nootropic blend. While a bit of an exaggeration to call these 'psychedlic' they definitely do mimic the effects of a low dose of traditional magic mushrooms. However, these are more functional and work as a great aid to increasing creativity and mood enhancement. It is also worth noting that some SSRI and other antidepressant medicines may dampen the effect for some users and/or make them require a higher dose. Personally we have not noticed this to be the case, but just so you know.
What you'll find in the bag:
- 10 Gummies per bag
- 1mg muscimol + 30mg nootropic mushroom blend per gummy
- Resealable, child resistant bag
Suggested Dosing Suggestions and Levels:

- Start with fewer gummies, wait at least 30 minutes, add more if desire.
- Micro: 1-3 gummies
- Modest: 4-6 gummies
Keep these safely stored away from children and animals.
About Mushroom Gummies
Mushrooms have a deep-rooted heritage, and have been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. As more people learn about their potential benefits, they have increased in popularity in the world of natural remedies. The only challenge is finding the mushrooms and preparing them, which can be time-consuming.
If you’re not the biggest fan of eating a traditional mushroom, you’re in luck! Nowadays, you can enjoy delicious mushroom gummies anywhere you are and enjoy the same benefits you would by cooking them.
The Amanita Muscaria mushroom has been the latest buzz in the health craze for its many benefits and uplifting effects. These benefits have been pressed and packaged into highly portable and sumptuous gummies.
What is the Amanita Muscaria Mushroom?
If this is the first time you’re hearing about the Amanita Muscaria mushroom, you must have a lot of questions. So let’s start with common names it goes by, so you can instantly recognize it when you’re reading about it, or listening to someone talk about it.
The Amanita Muscaria Mushroom goes by many different names:
- Fly agaric mushroom
- Fly amanita
- Red-and-white mushroom
- Russian mushroom
- Fools mushroom
- Magic mushroom
- Santa Claus mushroom
These names usually reflect the distinctive appearance of the mushroom. It has a red cap with white spots, and some of the names also reflect its traditional use as a type of insecticide.
Although some of its Aliases suggest recreational use, the Amanita Muscaria is a potent and potentially dangerous mushroom that shouldn’t be consumed in its full natural form. However, it does contain compelling ingredients.
The mushroom can be found in Continental and northern Europe and the UK, usually between the months of July and October. However, it’s also been found in South Africa, Brazil, Central Asia, and North America. It’s definitely a cosmopolitan mushroom.
The Amanita Muscaria mushroom is almost unmistakable because of its striking appearance. It has a scarlet red cap that stands out amongst the dirt on the forest floors. It’s also fairly large by mushroom standards and hard to miss.
Although it is relatively new in North America, the Amanita mushroom has a well-known history in other parts of the world. It was used in old folk and shamanic traditions in parts of Northern Europe and Central Asia. Pre-Christian cultures also used the mushroom during winter Solstice celebrations.
Different schools of thought believe the mushroom has many compounds like muscimol and muscarine which can produce a range of positive effects.
Is Amanita Muscaria Legal?
The legality of mushrooms differs depending on the type of mushroom, the potency of its uplifting effects, and the country you’re in.
The Amanita mushroom is no different. The country you live in makes it vital to understand the rules in your locality before deciding to buy the mushroom gummies.
Amanita mushrooms are legal to consume in the United States, with the exception of Louisiana. It is also legal to consume in other major countries like Sweden, Russia, and Ireland. Some countries have a more restrictive stance on the mushroom, such as Canada, Australia, and Thailand.
If you travel a lot, you need to be aware of the countries that restrict or prohibit the mushroom. In the US, Louisiana is the only state that prohibits the consumption of this mushroom, but allows it for decorative purposes.
Is the Amanita Muscaria Mushroom Poisonous?
Technically, the Amanita mushroom is poisonous. But with the advancements of modern medicine, fatalities from eating this type of mushroom are extremely rare. Research from the North American Mycological Society indicates that there are no reliably documented cases of death in humans from the Amanita within the past 100 years.
To put your mind more at ease, our mushroom gummies only have one ingredient from the amanita muscaria – muscimol. It is not one of the poisonous compounds, making it completely safe for consumption
With our processes, we ensure the highest quality and most rigorous testing of our raw materials and finished products. Your health and safety is our priority, so you can rest assured that you can enjoy our products without worry.
Does Amanita Mushroom Get You High?
Among the reasons the Amanita Muscaria mushroom is highly sought-after is its uplifting properties. However, the elevating effects of the Amanita are not as potent or famous as those of its old friend, psilocybin. The ingredients that produce the intoxicating effects in Amanita are Muscimol and ibotenic acid, however ibotenic acid can have dangerous side effects.
Muscimol has a more sedative, relaxing, and calming effect which is very different from the exciting and stimulating effects that more popular compounds like psilocybin are known for. That makes Amanita gummies an excellent choice when you want to unwind and relax at the end of the day.
How Does Taking Amanita Muscaria Mushrooms Feel?
The experience you have with Amanita Muscaria varies based on numerous factors, some of them being physiological.
The active ingredients in the mushroom and the product is the same, which is muscimol, and is quite distinctive and potent. The most commonly reported effect is the uplifting effect which is said to be powerful and relaxing. Some people even use the mushroom to help with spiritual meditation.
Some people also report feeling a tingling warmth throughout their body after taking the mushrooms. The effects will vary depending on the dosage taken, the environment you are in, personal tolerance, and much more.
Given the many factors at play when taking Amanita Muscara, you can't be too sure you will experience the same effects as someone else. Most of the experiences are personal to you and your purpose for taking them. That being said, almost everyone experiences the uplifting effects.
What Are Amanita Mushroom Gummies?
You can consume amanita mushrooms in many forms, and gummies are just one of those forms. The gummies are a form of dietary supplement infused with amanita muscaria mushroom extracts, and are convenient, delicious, and time-saving.
Amanita gummies have many wellness and therapeutic benefits, including better focus and alertness, and can even help elevate your mood and improve sociability. Some anecdotal reports also indicate that it might help with immune function.
Benefits of Amanita Mushroom Gummies
Amanita gummies are still a new concept that most people haven’t had the opportunity to try. Those that have tried them have all reported a wide range of different benefits. However, most of these reports are purely anecdotal, and the customer reviews paint a very encouraging picture.
Enhanced cognitive function
Amanita mushrooms are said to contain compounds that might improve focus and alertness. One study found that amanita extracts improved memory and learning in rats, and another that found amanita extract had improved cognitive functions in mice.
Although the studies aren’t human-based, they are a good indication that there's some truth to the reports by Amanita gummy consumers.
Historically, amanita mushrooms have been used for rituals and ceremonies as a natural remedy for anxiety. The active compounds in amanita mushrooms are thought to promote relaxation and reduce stress.
Most people report feeling calmer and more relaxed after taking the gummies. They might help you take the edge off and feel more relaxed at parties and public events where you need to relax, kick back, and socialize.
Possible immune system functions
Amanita mushrooms have also been reported to positively impact the functioning of our immune system. One study found that Amanita muscaria extract enhanced the activity of white blood cells, while another found that the extract helped increase the production of cytokines, which are proteins that help regulate the immune system.
Again, these benefits differ from person to person. You might not experience the same effects, and your experience after taking amanita gummies might differ slightly.
Precautions When Taking Amanita Mushroom Gummies
When taking amanita mushroom gummies, there are some precautions you should observe to ensure you have the best experience possible.
Like other natural supplements, you need to know how many gummies or how much amanita you should take.
Most gummies will come with the recommended dosage on the packaging. However, the ideal dosage will vary depending on various factors, including your weight and previous experience with mushroom gummies.
Taking too many gummies can produce intense uplifting effects that most consumers might find uncomfortable. That is why following the dosage guidelines on the specific product you choose is recommended if you’re unsure.
You can also start with one gummy, gauge the effects and your tolerance, then adjust based on your comfort level.
You should only use amanita mushroom gummies purchased from reputable sources that can provide a certificate of analysis (COA). The COA is a crucial document that proves the products have been thoroughly tested, met the required standards, and are fit for consumption.
Every amanita mushroom gummy you take must be lab tested and provide an analysis to show that it adheres to the requirements and the listing on the product label.
You should be cautious about taking amanita mushroom gummies when taking prescription medication. You should consult your doctor before you start taking gummies to determine if they might interfere with the other drugs' functioning or reduce their effectiveness.
You should also not mix the gummies with alcohol because it can increase the chances of adverse effects and reduce the potential benefits of the gummies. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should also consult their physicians before taking mushroom gummies.
You should also make sure to take mushroom gummies on an empty stomach, or at least a few hours after eating, because the effects of the gummies may be greatly reduced on a full stomach.
How Many Amanita Mushroom Gummies Should You Take?
Dosing is a critical factor when taking amanita mushroom gummies. Identifying the amount of gummies you should take is vital in ensuring you get the best experience from them. The general rule of thumb is to start with a low dose and gradually increase until you achieve the desired effects.
The secret is going low and slow. You can increase your intake anytime for better results but can't decrease your current dose. That's why you should take things slow.
After taking your first amanita mushroom gummy, you should wait at least an hour before taking another dose.
The effects of amanita mushroom gummy can vary depending on the individual. However, most people report feeling the effects within 30-60 minutes of taking the gummies. The effects can last up to six hours, but this also varies from person to person.
Factors that Affect the Number of Mushroom Gummies You Should Take
Most mushroom gummy packages have the recommended intake written on the packaging. However, most consumers find that the recommended intake is either too much or doesn’t produce the effects they’re looking for. That’s because each person has a unique amount that works for them. You should take time to find the ideal number of gummies you should take to achieve your desired effects. Below, we’ve highlighted some of the factors that may affect the number of gummies that work best for you.
Concentration of Gummies
You want to look at the concentration of the gummies because they are made from an extract, where the concentration can vary. You need to pick gummies that match the concentration you're looking for, because the effects might be too strong for your liking. If the concentration is too low, you might need to take multiple gummies to get the right effects which means you spend a bit more on product.
Rate of Metabolism
The rate of your metabolism is a biological response that varies depending on many factors, including your activity level and physical condition. Active people have a faster metabolism, and the converse is true for more laidback and less active people
Metabolic rate is crucial because it determines how fast you experience the results and how long the effects last.
Previous Experience with Mushrooms
People with previous experience with shrooms and amanita muscaria, in particular, need more than first-time consumers. If you have previous experience, your body has adjusted to the active compounds in the mushrooms, meaning you need more gummies to experience the same effects. New consumers haven’t built up that tolerance, so it’s likely they will feel the effects after consuming even half a gummy.
When taking amanita gummies, you should keep these factors in mind. If you’re a new consumer with an active lifestyle, you might need to take more gummies than a new consumer with a sedentary lifestyle. Regardless, any new consumer should start with the recommended dose.
How to Choose the Best Mushroom Gummies
Now that you know all about amanita gummies, you must know how to buy the best one. You can find different brands online and in shops, but not all of them are what they say on the label.
Getting the right mushroom gummies takes more than reading the label, although that should always be a part of the buying process. Buying the right gummies is extremely crucial because it determines the experience you will have. Also, buying low-quality mushroom gummies could yield a more negative experience. Not all mushroom products are created equal.
The potency is the ability of the gummies to produce the desired effects. Amanita gummies are made using an extract from the mushroom, and manufacturers can vary the concentration of the active ingredients to make gummies that are suitable for different experience levels. As an experienced user, you should look for brands that provide optimal mushroom potency. A higher dose will mean you need fewer gummies per day to get the right results. If you're a new mushroom fan, you can settle for something with a lower concentration as you learn your way around the gummies and how they make you feel.
The best quality mushroom gummies are made from organic ingredients. You should only select the best mushroom gummies with high-quality components. The source of the mushrooms should be clearly identifiable, and you should be able to tell if they are manufactured or natural. You should also take a step to confirm that the gummies have undergone quality and efficacy testing at an independent laboratory before making the purchase.
The Gelling Agent
Before choosing labels, you should also look at the gelling agent used in the gummies. The gelling agent is what holds the gummy together and is responsible for its unique consistency. Some common agents can be pectin or gelatin. Pectin is a plant-based gelling substance suitable for individuals with nutritional limitations or inclinations, such as vegans and vegetarians. Gelatin is from animal products.
Variety of Sweets and Flavors
The sole reason gummies have dominated the natural supplements market is because of their unique flavors and colors. When buying mushroom gummies, you shouldn’t forget this. Go for labels with multiple, natural flavors and sweeteners rather than artificial ones. These are safe for human consumption and produce a better, more natural taste.
While you might have a favorite flavor, it doesn’t hurt to go for varieties for those instances when you want to try something new or are feeling adventurous.
Transparency and Certifications
Premium companies are open and honest about their buying, production, and testing procedures. They should have certifications from reputable groups that maintain strict standards, such as GMP. Companies will often have seals or accreditations from these groups on the packages. The more certifications the company has, the higher the quality of its gummies.
Third-Party Lab Testing
All the mushroom gummies you purchase must be third-party lab tested. Companies are exceptional at marketing and can include various claims on the label that don't have to be true. You can only tell that the product is what they say it is, if it has been tested by a third-party lab.
Because no government agency regulates mushroom gummies, leading companies work with certified third-party labs to test their products for purity, composition, and potency. They publish these results in the COA, which the company publishes on its website.
When checking the COA, look to see if there are any detectable levels of toxins and contaminants and ensure that you understand all the ingredients added to the gummies. If you’re not familiar with any of them, research them online.
Customer reviews are a crucial resource that provide a wealth of information. With the reviews, you can evaluate how other people feel about the gummies and their effectiveness. You can also determine the company’s reputation by perusing the reviews to see what the customers are saying. A reliable and trustworthy company should have a history of positive and happy customer reviews.
