The Amanita Muscaria mushroom has been used for religious, divination, therapeutic/medicinal and social purposes dating back as far as 4000 BC. The main active compounds that are utilized from the mushroom are Ibotenic acid and muscimol, Ibotenic acid being a precursor to muscimol. Both of these compounds target the γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors in the brain. Oregon Amanitas’ products are made in a way that reduces Ibotenic acid levels and maximizes muscimol levels, as research has shown muscimol to be a promising medicine with many benefits like treating stress and anxiety, restoring sleep, and easing muscular and neuropathic pain.
