“Magic mushrooms” have fascinated humans for generations upon generations, offering a one-of-a-kind psychoactive experience ranging from stress relief to spiritual introspection.  The key compound in magic mushrooms is psilocybin.  This is a hallucinogen that supplies psychedelic effects that can be, without exaggeration, life-changing.  Psilocybin mushrooms have been a staple of spiritual and religious ceremonies for thousands of years.  And yet, they remain deeply misunderstood here in the United States.  Let’s take a closer look at what makes these mushrooms so distinctive.

Psilocybin Mushrooms: The Basics

Psilocybin mushrooms refer to any mushrooms that contain psilocybin, a naturally occurring hallucinogen.  They grow wild in various regions throughout the world.  The earliest evidence of their use pointing back to 4000 B.C., in Spain.

Psilocybin gets its effects through its interaction with serotonin receptors in the brain, largely in the prefrontal cortex.  To a lesser extent, the compound works on other regions of the brain as well.  The effects can start in 30 minutes after ingestion, lasting for several hours – usually 5-6 – but potentially longer, depending on dosage, type of mushroom, and the user’s unique bodily system.

The most common way by far to consume these mushrooms is to ingest them.  That seems to be the most bioavailable method, and even allows for a long-lasting experience that gives the user plenty of time to explore a new state of consciousness.  The mushrooms are almost always dried after harvesting to preserve them.  From there, the user can consume them as is, brew them into tea, or add them to food, as their earthy, bitter taste can be really unpleasant on its own.

While psilocybin mushrooms have been used recreationally for ages, recently, their clinical use has been explored, in hopes of one day using psilocybin to treat, among other things, mood disorders and psychiatric disorders.

What Kinds of Effects Can These Mushrooms Offer?

Psilocybin is a hallucinogen, which means that it can distort one’s perception, and cause hallucinations if taken in a high enough dose.  It can also introduce effects such as euphoria and relaxation.  More than that, lots of people use these mushrooms to gain insight into past events in their lives, or experience a greater sense of spirituality.  The mind-altering effects of psilocybin creates an altered state of mind in which a person can view things through an entirely different perspective, often in a very positive way, which can allow a person to process difficult emotions or events in their lives, and experience true healing.

There is also a growing trend of micro-dosing with psilocybin mushrooms.  Translation: taking small, often daily doses that are below the threshold for intoxication.  Micro-doses of psilocybin may improve a person’s mood, and provide genuine relief from a host of mental health disorders, while improving things like creativity, sociability, focus, and motivation, without actually causing mind-altering effects that could interfere with a person’s daily functionality.  Many people micro-dose, who are able to maintain their busy work schedule and social life.

Are Magic Mushrooms Dangerous?

People have been consuming psilocybin for thousands of years, and it’s not generally dangerous, as it’s nontoxic at the doses which are typically consumed.  But, the family of mushrooms isn’t without risks, either.

The most common side effect by far is having a “bad trip.”  This can happen if you have an existing mood disorder, go into the experience fearfully, take too much, or take the mushrooms in a less-than-ideal setting – like an unfamiliar place that makes you uneasy, or with people who you don’t feel particularly comfortable around.  A bad trip can cause anxiety and paranoia, which subsides as the substance wears off.

If you are predisposed to psychotic episodes, you may experience psychosis after taking magic mushrooms, and in some cases, the mushrooms can bring on an early onset of a psychiatric disorder that you’re already predisposed to.

Otherwise, side effects can include:

As for the psychological side effects (ones associated with a “bad trip”), they can be avoided to an extent.  First, be mindful of your dosage, since they are very dose-dependent.  Secondly, make sure that you’re in a setting you feel comfortable in, with people who you feel safe to be around.  Finally, make sure that you only take these mushrooms when you feel that you are ready, mentally.  Going into the experience with a feeling of anxiety or apprehension can lead to an unpleasant session.

Is Psilocybin Legal?

We’ve talked a lot about magic mushrooms and their many potential benefits.  To point that we totally get if you’re now enticed to give them a try.  But, there’s some bad news – they’re illegal.  Psilocybin is a federally illegal substance (illegal in all 50 states), with one exception: Oregon.  OR is still working out regulations to allow them to be available for purchase – for medical use, only.  Still, a few parts of the country have decriminalized possession: Colorado, as well as Washington D.C., along with certain municipalities in California, Washington State, and Massachusetts.  Meanwhile, a growing number of states are presently pushing for decriminalization or legalization.

Psilocybin Mushrooms: What Does the Future Hold?

Psilocybin mushrooms aren’t just fun – they can provide legitimate therapeutic benefits, and clinical researchers are diving deep into these possible benefits as we speak.  At the same time, many states are looking at possible legalization for the first time in American history.  Clearly, there’s something more to these mushrooms than getting high off of them.  And, also a reason they’ve been a staple of ceremonies around the world for millennia

Amanita mushrooms are a big trend right now – but at the same time, they’ve also been around for quite some time, so they’re not exactly new.  If you’re seeing mushroom gummies popping up online, it’s because the explosive success of the legal psychoactive hemp market has allowed companies to explore other legal, natural intoxicants.  Amanita mushrooms, of course, fit the bill.  Because you may have never tried them before, or even heard of them, we’re here to share everything there is to know.

What are Amanita Mushrooms?

When discussing amanita mushrooms, we’re usually talking about amanita muscaria.  Amanita muscaria is the most popular species of the amanita family.  Amanita muscaria is distinctive for its red cap and white polka dot-like spots.  In fact, this mushroom is so distinctive, it has been a huge part of pop culture for decades.  Don’t believe us?  Check out that mushroom emoji on your phone, or go play some vintage Mario.

Amanita mushroom grows wild in Asia, Europe, and North America.  For thousands of years even, it has been a mainstay of cultural ceremonies of a spiritual or religious nature.  This mushroom is psychedelic, due to its key compound muscimol.  This acts sorta like a dissociative.

What Effects are Associated with Taking Amanita Mushrooms?

Muscimol is responsible for the majority of effects you will get from muscimol, which’s a known GABA agonist.  Meaning, it produces distinctive effects associated with the brain and greater nervous system.  GABA is a neurotransmitter associated with feelings of calm and relaxation.  Hence, why muscimol is recognized for its dissociative and sedative qualities.  Thus, making it distinct from psilocybin, the hallucinogenic compound found in “magic mushroom” species.

Because of this, amanita mushrooms are extremely popular among people who are looking to experience relief from stress, anxiety, and PTSD symptoms – as well as depression symptoms, because the effects can also be very euphoric.  The mushrooms are intoxicating, and of course, the nature of the high is going to be very dose-dependent.  Generally low doses will give you more calming, sedative-like effects.  On the other side, higher doses can put you into a full-on hallucinatory state with visual distortions, big changes in perspective, deep introspection, and a sense of spiritual connectedness.  People often say that higher doses are great for processing past traumatic events.  How come?  Well,  this is likely because of the manner in which muscimol enhances neuroplasticity.  In other words, the “flexibility” of neural pathways, enabling the brain to become more resilient to traumatic stimuli.

Another key potential benefit of amanita mushrooms is their ability to alleviate discomfort in the body.  Much like cannabinoids from the hemp plant, muscimol seems to offer a feeling of tension release in the muscles and joints for the duration of the high.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Amanita mushrooms have been used for thousands of years, and never found to cause any major harm – as long as they’re prepared properly.  These mushrooms must be boiled for an extended time to remove all toxic compounds, and the mushroom gummies and other edibles you’ll find on the open market have undergone this process to ensure safety.

The most common side effect of amanita mushrooms is impairment, due to the nervous system effects.  This effect can make things like driving, using sharp objects, and operating heavy machinery dangerous.  Of course, getting too high off of them can also cause anxiety and paranoia, which is common with psychedelics.  The key to avoiding this is taking the mushrooms only when you feel mentally prepared to experience a potentially powerful introspective experience.  Plus, doing so in an environment where you feel safe and comfortable.  Otherwise, monitor your dosing to avoid taking too much.  In general, these mushrooms are not addictive, and are not associated with any toxicity.

Where are These Mushrooms Legal?

We know it may come as a surprise, but amanita muscaria mushrooms, and all amanita varieties, are totally legal in the good ol’ USA.  Unlike psilocybin, which’s a federally banned substance, and illegal in all but one state in the country, amanita muscaria mushrooms are totally legal to enjoy in all 50 states – with one exception being in Louisiana.  In that state, amanita muscaria mushrooms strictly prohibited.

Amanita Mushrooms: The Next Big Legal, Plant-Derived High

Amanita mushrooms have been utilized for a long, long time, and there’s clearly a reason why they remain so sought-after.  If you’re ready to seek out your own amanita experience, you’ll want to apply the same standards that you do to hemp products – like looking for a trusted brand, reading up on reviews, and checking third-party lab reports for quality and safety, to know you’re getting nothing but legit, top-quality, and safe mushroom products.

Amanita mushrooms are totally worth exploring.  Especially, if you’re someone who enjoys natural psychoactives, and simply wants to go a bit deeper into a psychedelic experience.  Assuming you dose properly (by following the label’s instructions), you can have a surprisingly profound experience, or, at the very least, get some well-deserved relief from your daily stress and worries.

At Wild Orchard Co, we’re launching our own amanita muscaria products.  These come in user-friendly formulas such as gummies.  That way, dosing is amazingly simple.  Prepared properly to ensure maximum safety, they offer mouthwatering flavor.  Not only that, but also come in doses that will give you the full potential of benefits associated with this long-beloved mushroom species.

Mushroom gummies come in all kinds of varieties – and some of them are intoxicating, while others are not.  While nonintoxicating mushrooms are generally legal in all 50 states, intoxicating varieties are more restricted.  We know that psilocybin mushrooms, aka “magic mushrooms”, are strictly banned in all 50 states, with the exception of Oregon.  But, what about amanita mushroom gummies, which do produce a high, with muscimol rather than psilocybin?  Let’s see what the law says and if they’re actually legal.

What Does Federal Law Say About Amanita Mushrooms?

Amanita mushrooms are actually totally legal in the US under federal law.  They haven’t ever been banned, either.  Psilocybin mushrooms have been prohibited since 1968, before many of us were even born, but amanita mushrooms, with their distinctive red cap and white polka dots, are totally legal in America.

Are Amanita Mushrooms Legal in Every State as Well?

Yes, amanita mushrooms are totally legal under federal law, but states don’t have to abide by that.  Find your state below, to find out whether or not this intoxicating mushroom species is legal where you live, in gummy form or otherwise.

Amanita Mushroom Gummies: Legal in 49 out of 50 States

Amanita mushroom gummies are legal in every state but Louisiana, and for all nonintoxicating mushroom gummies, there are zero legal restrictions in any state.  That’s good news – unless, of course, you’re a Louisianian who was hoping to score amanita gummies – and that means that if you live anywhere but LA, you’re free to purchase and enjoy the Mushroom Gummies that we carry here at Wild Orchard Co.

At Wild Orchard Co., we’ve been launching mushroom gummies which contain any number of unique, beneficial mushroom species.  We’re super proud of the formulations that we carry, as they’re made with clean ingredients, and ideal servings of mushroom extracts to maximize the benefits that these products can offer to our customers.  With that being said, however, we know that not all mushrooms are created equally.  Let’s talk about ingredients today.  You see, there are all kinds of “good” and “bad” ingredients infused into different mushroom gummy formulations.

Why Do the Ingredients Matter So Much?

Since the mushroom gummy market is unregulated, companies can basically put whatever they want into a formula and sell it to consumers.  While we want to believe that most brands out there are honest, and put customers’ needs first, the truth is that there will always be sketchy brands that put unwanted additives into their gummies.

What to Look for in a Mushroom Gummy Formula

Now, let’s go over the ingredients that do and don’t belong in a mushroom gummy formula.

Mushroom Extract

Of course, you want there to be a mushroom extract in the gummies – the mushroom(s) advertised on the product’s label.  This doesn’t necessarily need to be the first ingredient on the list.  Many gummies are potent in small amounts, so making them the #1 ingredient would be overkill.  Occasionally, the mushroom component may be separate on the label from the rest of the ingredients.

Natural Flavoring

Ideally, you want to consume mushroom gummies that are flavored naturally rather than artificially.  Artificial flavoring isn’t always bad, but the thing is that any ingredient can be used to make artificial flavoring, and some are better for you than others.  Besides that, few will argue that natural flavors just taste better.  You may see this listed as “natural flavoring”, or you may see a breakdown of the individual flavoring ingredients.

Natural Preservatives

Natural preservatives are always ideal, as many synthetic preservatives contain known toxic compounds.  Citric acid is a common one for gummies, since it adds to the fruity taste, being derived from citrus.  If you’re not sure if a preservative is natural or not, look it up.

Other Active Ingredients

Sometimes, you may find other active ingredients in mushroom gummies – like, say, an herb, or a cannabinoid from the hemp plant.  It’s totally cool to take other active ingredients with your mushroom extracts, but of course, if there are other actives, they should be advertised as such on the product’s label or online description for the sake of transparency.

What Ingredients Should You Avoid?

Then, there are ingredients that should be totally avoided.  Let’s take a look at those ingredients.  Why?  Because that’s just as popular as knowing which ingredients should be included in a mushroom gummy formula.

Synthetic Additives and Fillers

Overall, avoiding synthetic additives and fillers is key.  There shouldn’t be a never-ending list of ingredients in any gummy.  Usually, that’s a sign that a lot of fillers are put in there that really don’t belong, existing just to “fill out” (dilute) the formula.  Worse, some fillers contain toxic compounds that we just don’t want to be consuming regularly.  The less ingredients, and the more natural, the better.

Improper Use of Sweetener

Pay attention to the type of sweetener that’s used, and how much of it is used.  Sweeteners come in all varieties, and some are better for our health than others.  High-fructose corn syrup, for instance, is linked to diabetes and other health problems, while more natural sweeteners like cane sugar, agave, and coconut sugar are lower on the glycemic index, and generally better for our overall health.

Ingredients You’re Sensitive to

Avoid ingredients that your body is sensitive, intolerant, or allergic to.  You never know what might pop up in a mushroom gummy.  And, if you have ingredients that your body personally struggles with, it’s all the more important that you really go over that list of ingredients carefully.

Gelatin (If You’re Vegan)

There are still a good majority of gummies that’re made with gelatin – a derivative of animal collagen.  Gelatin provides that gel-like gummy texture that makes gummies, well, gummies.  It’s super useful, and it’s not harmful to our health, but because it is an animal derivative, it’s not vegan-friendly.  Luckily, there is an alternative known as pectin – derived from certain fruits, and even provides the same exact gummy texture.

The good news is, however, an influx of companies are utilzing fruit pectin instead of gelatin in order to ensure that their gummies are vegan.  Still, you always want to check beforehand, and also keep in mind that some brands actually use both pectin and gelatin in their formulas.

Mushrooms are having a major moment right now, and we mean both psychoactive and nonintoxicating varieties.  For thousands of years, mushrooms have been used therapeutically throughout the world, and many of their benefits have been studied at length in clinical settings And, we’re gonna focus on one of the most respected mushroom species out there: Lion’s Mane.  This has been a staple of traditional Chinese medicine, and has made its way into gummy form for the most user-friendly method of taking it yet.

The Roaring Basics on Lion’s Mane

Lion’s Mane is a culinary and medicinal mushroom that’s long been associated with Asian cultures.  Both in their cuisine and in their traditional forms of medicine.  Flavor-wise, they’re renowned for their similarity to shellfish, offering an umami flavor that makes for a great replacement for shrimp, lobster, and crab.  Their deeply savory taste also goes great in sauces and other kinds of dishes.

Lion’s Mane shrooms have a distinctively shaggy appearance, with a round white cap and dangling threads.  Hence, the nickname “pom-pom mushrooms”.  Their main application is therapeutic, although they’re fairly easy to find for culinary purposes as well.

Is Lion’s Mane Intoxicating?

Lion’s Mane is not an intoxicating mushroom, so you won’t be high from taking it in any regard.  Despite its mood effects which are often described as very positive, there is no actual psychoactive compound in these mushrooms that causes a mind-altering state.  Keep in mind, however, that you may come across mushroom gummies that combine Lion’s Mane with a psychoactive substance like amanita mushrooms, or THC derived from the hemp plant.

What are the Benefits of Lion’s Mane?

Now, we get to the most important part: potential health benefits that come from taking this mushroom.  Let’s go over the key ones now, so you can understand why taking these gummies can be so beneficial.

Cognitive Benefits

Lion’s Mane may offer powerful cognitive benefits to improve focus, motivation, mental stamina, and memory – making it a great choice for anyone who struggles with brain fog or fatigue.  The mushrooms are being studied for their implications related to dementia, as they may stimulate neuron growth and generally keep cognition healthy while we age.  An impressive study found that Alzheimer’s patients who were administered Lion’s Mane daily experienced improved cognition compared to the placebo group.

Anxiety and Depression Relief

A study found that Lion’s Mane was able to effectively reduce anxiety and depression in mice.  This data is something that has been substantiated by a lot of people who take the mushroom on a daily basis.  It’s believed that Lion’s Mane improves function of the hippocampus – the region of the brain that deals with emotional processing – and can therefore have applications related to trauma.

Improvement in Gut Health

Lion’s Mane seems to offer impressive effects on gut health, including the potential ability to help ulcers heal, and prevent them from developing in the first place.  The mushroom is also shown to have profound anti-inflammatory effects that can reduce symptoms associated with conditions like inflammatory bowel diseases.

Reduction in Heart Disease Risk

Lion’s Mane is often touted for being a natural means for preventing heart disease thanks to its unique properties.  It can lower cholesterol, a major contributing factor in poor cardiovascular health.  Plus, reduce oxidization of cholesterol, which can lower the risk of both heart attack and stroke.

Immune-Boosting Properties

Lots of studies have pointed to surprising immune benefits associated with Lion’s Mane.  Particularly, related to pathogens that enter into the gut.  This area of research is being explored as we speak, and the findings are promising.

Decrease in Blood Sugar

Finally, Lion’s Mane might be able to improve symptoms in those with diabetes.  This is done by reducing blood sugar levels.  A number of studies have shown that the mushroom has shown improvement in patients with diabetes.

Does Lion’s Mane Have Side Effects?

Surprisingly, there are no known side effects associated with taking Lion’s Mane mushrooms.  They’ve been tested on rodents and shown to produce no adverse effects.  And so far, we haven’t heard any consistent anecdotal information about harm.

Is Lion’s Mane Legal?

Lion’s Mane is completely legal, as it’s nonintoxicating.  Meaning, it’s legal both federally and on a state level.  You can purchase Lion’s Mane in-person or online without any risks of getting into trouble with the law.  However due to its rarity, it’s a protected species in some countries and U.S. states.

What is the Best Way to Take Lion’s Mane?

If you wanna introduce Lion’s Mane into your routine, the best way to do so is through gummies – unless you plan on using them for culinary purposes in addition to therapeutic ones.  Lion’s Mane gummies allow you to take a consistent dose on a daily basis, like you would a daily supplement.  They contain an extract of the mushroom that’s highly bioavailable.  This way, you can choose your ideal daily dosage.  Plus, take them easily without having to prepare them ahead of time.

A lot of our customers are vegan, and we want to accommodate them by ensuring that the products we carry are free of animal derivatives.  While gummies are traditionally made with gelatin, a byproduct of animal collagen, to get that perfect gummy texture, we’ve switched it out for pectin – a natural derivative of fruit which achieves the exact same effect.

Mushroom gummies are starting to pop up all over the hemp market, and most of them are made with amanita muscaria – a type of mushroom that is known for its psychoactive effects that are sedative-like in nature.  These mushrooms are intoxicating, so that means you need to practice some caution when using them.  Luckily, we’re here with a basic breakdown of do’s and don’ts, to ensure that you get the most out of your new gummy purchase.

Basic Do’s and Don’ts When Taking Mushroom Gummies

Let’s go over the basic rules for taking psychoactive mushroom gummies, because while these gummies are not necessarily known to be dangerous, there can be some unpleasant side effects if they’re taken improperly – or if you somehow end up with a poorly made or fake product.  Let’s get started.

Taking Mushroom GummiesTaking Mushroom Gummies


Do: Look at Lab Reports

First off, just like cannabinoids, amanita mushrooms must undergo specific third-party lab-testing protocol before being sold.  So, when you’re ready to make a purchase, we urge you to look for these lab reports on the company’s website, which will tell you the purity, safety, authenticity, and potency of the product, so you know from an unbiased source that you’re getting the best option available.

Do: Follow the Dosing Directions

Mushroom gummies should always come with clear dosing directions on the product label, so we urge you to follow them especially if you’re a beginner.  While taking a larger dose isn’t necessarily going to cause major harm, it can put you at greater risk of side effects like paranoia, anxiety, and general impairment.  As you build up tolerance over time, you can consider taking a higher dose.

Do: Pay Attention to Other Ingredients

Look at the full list of ingredients before taking any mushroom gummy.  While we want to believe that all companies have our best interests at heart, you never know what a certain brand might slip into their formula that could potentially be less than good for the body.  Naturally:

Do: Research Before You Try

Before you take any mushroom for the first time, research it as extensively as possible.  This way, you’ll have a full idea of what kinds of effects you’ll experience, what side-effects you may face, and the best practices for taking these mushrooms to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.  You can find plenty of online resources to learn more about these mushrooms.

Do: Make the Most of Your Experience

Amanita mushrooms can provide you with anything from a feeling of calm and relaxation to a highly introspective, spiritual, and healing experience, depending on the dose and how your brain chemistry reacts to muscimol, the key compound.  We encourage you to really make the most of your session by enjoying them in an environment that brings you inspiration, whether that be at home or in the great outdoors, and even considering doing things like journaling or drawing to get in touch with yourself.


Don’t: Take the Mushrooms in an Environment You’re Not Comfortable in

We strongly recommend that you consider the environment that you’re in when you take these mushrooms.  Do not take them in an area where you generally feel unsafe, as that can cause you to feel anxious and paranoid – and potentially put you in harm’s way, due to the impairment that comes with these mushrooms.  Make sure that if you’re with others, they’re people who you trust.

Don’t: Take More Than You Can Handle, Tolerance-Wise

There’s no need to take a super high dose if you’re someone with a low tolerance.  This can backfire, and cause side effects like anxiety as you’re simply not prepared for the heavy, intoxicating qualities of the mushroom species.  And, keep in mind that it can take 30-90 minutes for the muscimol to take effect, so don’t keep taking more gummies because you’re not feeling anything 20 minutes into ingesting them.

Don’t: Expose Your Gummies to the Wrong Conditions

Mushroom gummies need to be kept in a dark, dry, and cool environment, in a sealed container, when they’re not in use.  Otherwise, they can go bad, by losing not only their flavor and texture, but also their effectiveness, as the muscimol can end up breaking down due to oxidization.  This means not leaving your gummies in a hot car or keeping the jar’s lid off.

Don’t: Underestimate Their Effects

Finally, don’t underestimate how intense the effects can be in higher doses.  If you’re going to with a high dose, prepare yourself for the fact that you may experience some hallucinatory effects, and may find that heavy emotions come up for you so that you can process them.  Being open-minded, yet cautious and informed, is the best way to have a positive experience with amanita mushrooms.

Follow These Recommendations For a Blissful Mushroom Experience

No doubt, amanita mushrooms can be extremely rewarding – even profound – but only if you go about taking them the right way.  And, that means being mindful of where you’re buying them, while also being aware of their effects, general dosing guidelines, and the environment you’re in.  Fortunately, you can see that the “rules” of mushroom gummies are actually pretty straightforward, so your chance of having a good experience is very high.

Mushroom gummies are the next big thing on the natural wellness market, and it’s easy to see why.  With so many varieties that have been proven to provide major benefits, ranging from PTSD management to improved immunity, they can address a lot of our daily needs, while being easy to take, all-natural, and totally legal.  That being said, we just gotta explore the known benefits of popular therapeutic mushrooms, gummies, focusing mainly on amanita mushrooms, but others as well.

What are the Therapeutic Effects When Taking Amanita Mushroom Gummies?

Amanita muscaria mushrooms are legal in the United States, despite being intoxicating.  These mushrooms get their primary benefits from muscimol, the intoxicating compound that has impressive effects on the nervous system.

Relief from Stress, Anxiety, and PTSD Symptoms

Muscimol, the key compound in amanita mushrooms, works directly with GABA receptors, having been found to act as a GABA agonist.  GABA is a neurotransmitter that plays a major role in regulating the nervous system, and is associated with feelings of calm and ease, being the antagonist to our fight-or-flight response.  People say that taking high doses of amanita mushrooms can offer the ability to move through traumatic memories, helping the brain process them.  Even at low doses, it’s possible that muscimol can help a person manage their daily stress or anxiety symptoms.  This is why micro-dosing with mushroom gummies is immensely popular.

Relief from Depression

At the same time, more depression patients are beginning to gravitate toward amanita mushroom gummies to address their symptoms.  The mushroom’s key compound, muscimol, seems to have the ability to rewire the brain and change the way in which neurons interact with each other, enabling changes in one’s state of mind.  The ‘high’ is often described as euphoric, while its sedative properties can help a person manage negative or generally unwanted thoughts.

Anti-Seizure Effects

Muscimol has been studied in recent years for the way in which it could potentially manage symptoms of epilepsy.  GABA plays a critical role in seizure activity, and GABA agonists can reduce seizure activity in the brain.  This, of course, could have major clinical implications in the future, as epilepsy can be a very serious and potentially fatal condition.

Promotion of Neuroplasticity

Muscimol has been found to benefit neuroplasticity, which means that it can enhance the brain’s ability to be “flexible” and “bounce back” from difficult experiences and situations.  Neuroplasticity is a key area of research at the moment when it comes to addressing trauma, as it’s believed that the more neuroplastic the brain is, the more effectively it can process traumatic memories and repair itself.  Aside from that, neuroplasticity may play a critical role in the prevention of cognitive decline, by allowing the brain to maintain its ability to build new neural pathways and stay “sharp” as a person ages.

Creativity Boost

Lots of people get inspiration from the ‘high’ of amanita mushrooms.  In turn, allowing them to get a boost in creativity.  If you’re someone who gravitates toward artistic endeavors like art, music, or writing, you may find that amanita mushrooms help you get more accomplished creatively while you experience the dreamy high that they can induce.

Greater Spiritual Awareness

In higher doses, amanita mushrooms may be able to enhance our feeling of spiritual awareness.  People describe the psychedelic effects that come with higher doses as a feeling of spiritual connectedness, and the ability to see things from a new, greater perspective.  This can be profound if you’ve been struggling to find meaning in your day-to-day life.

Anti-Inflammatory Effects

Muscimol seems to offer anti-inflammatory effects as well, as GABA plays a role in regulating our inflammatory response.  So, taking the mushroom regularly could act as a natural way to ease chronic inflammation in the body.

Other Mushroom Varieties: How are They Beneficial?

We’ve covered amanita mushrooms and how they can be beneficial, but what about other mushroom varieties that are sold on the market?  Let’s take a look at some of the most common ones you’ll encounter, which aren’t psychoactive, but do bring their own fascinating benefits.

Lion’s Mane

A super popular nonintoxiating mushroom, Lion’s Mane has been used in traditional Asian medicine for centuries.  It can offer immunity-boosting properties, while improving cognitive function, digestive health, neurological health, and energy levels.  Many people find that the mushroom helps them concentrate better during the day, as well.


Cordyceps mushrooms are often used for energy – in fact, they may improve exercise performance.  They also have associations with anti-aging, thanks to the high level of antioxidants found within their chemical composition.

Turkey Tail

Antioxidant-rich Turkey Tail mushrooms are used for anti-aging purposes.  They’re known for being high in anti-inflammatory properties, while potentially improving gut health and regulating blood sugar – something useful for anyone with diabetes.

Red Reishi

Red reishi mushrooms are commonly used for immunity, by improving the function of white blood cells.  The mushroom is also commonly used to combat depression and fatigue.


Chaga mushrooms are highly anti-inflammatory and offer immune-boosting properties.  The mushroom has also been found to reduce both blood sugar and cholesterol.

Gummies are quickly becoming one of the most popular forms of cannabis products. They are discrete, easy to dose, and there are endless options for flavors and cannabinoid blends — so it can be very frustrating if you feel like cannabis gummies just don’t work for you. Today, we’ll discuss why that might be happening and how you can fix it. 


How Do CBD, Delta-8 THC and D9 Edibles Work?

Edibles are known for hitting harder and lasting longer than Delta 8, Delta 9, or CBD products consumed using other methods. This is because they are metabolized differently by your body. 


When you smoke, vape, or take a tincture, the cannabinoids pass directly into your bloodstream. When you eat an edible, the cannabinoids must go through your digestive system before they’re absorbed. This process turns regular THC into 11-hydroxy-THC, which is more potent and longer-lasting. 


Why Don’t CBD, D8 or Delta-9 Gummies Get Me High?

There’s nothing more frustrating than eating a gummy, waiting a few hours, and realizing it’s never going to kick in. Here are four reasons this could be happening. 


1. Cannabinoid Gummies and Body Chemistry

A small percentage of people seem to need an extremely high dose to begin feeling the effects of edibles. Scientists aren’t sure why this is the case, but they think it has to do with genetics and how the body absorbs fats. 


No two people have the same metabolism. If you’ve ever eaten Delta 9 gummies with friends, you’ll know this from experience: not everyone starts feeling it simultaneously, and the effects don’t last as long for everyone. This differentiation could explain why you don’t feel the effects of gummies, too. 


2. Timing When to Eat CBD, Delta-8 and D9 THC Gummies

The timing of when you pop a CBD, D8 or Delta-9 gummy could affect how much you feel them (or don’t, as the case may be). 


Eating gummies on an empty stomach can help some people feel the effects faster, but others can’t absorb all of the cannabinoids without some other food in their stomach. Eating a gummy after a big meal may make it take much longer to kick in, too, since your body has to digest all of the other food you’ve eaten before it can digest the gummy edibles. 


3. Gummy Tolerance Occurs from Regular Cannabinoid Consumption

Many heavy cannabis consumers colloquially report that they don’t feel the effects of edibles. With regular consumption, your body builds up a tolerance to cannabinoids. If you find that it takes a much higher edible dose to get you stoned than it does for someone else, you might have a higher tolerance for cannabis. 


4. Some Edible Formulations Are More Effective than Others

Even though gummy edibles are delicious and convenient, they aren’t the most effective form of edibles for everyone. 


Cannabinoids are lipophilic, which means they bond to fats. That’s why ingredients like “cannabutter” are so popular — cannabinoids bond with oils very effectively. Some studies have shown that fats can help your body absorb cannabinoids better. Gummy edibles don’t have very much fat in them, so some people find that their body doesn’t effectively absorb the cannabinoids in these types of edibles. 


How to Make CBD, D8 and Delta-9 Edibles Work for You

Luckily, you can try many different things to make gummies and other edibles work better for you. Try these four tips.


1. Try a Different CBD, Delta-8 or D9 Edible Dose

You might need a stronger dose if gummies don’t seem to get you high. When adjusting your dose with any edible, make sure to go slow. Add just a few milligrams to your serving size, and wait at least two hours before eating any more. Keeping a journal when learning your ideal dose can be a good way to ensure you ramp up slowly.


2. Give Different Kinds of Cannabinoid Edibles a Go

Because cannabis is lipophilic and gummies have a relatively low fat content, your body might need a little more fat to absorb the cannabinoids in gummies. Try an edible with a slightly higher fat content, like Delta 9 cookies, or eat a fatty snack with a gummy edible. Exciting new types of edibles, like Delta 9 shots, might even work for you too. 


3. Take a Tolerance Break

Some people have a naturally higher cannabinoid tolerance than others, but heavy cannabis consumers can build up a significant tolerance to cannabis products, too. If you fall into the latter group, try avoiding cannabis products for a week or two to help bring your tolerance back down. When you try edibles again, you may find they are more effective. 


4. Consider Consuming Your CBD, D8 or Delta-9 Differently

If you’ve tried various edibles, experimented with your dose, and ruled out a high tolerance as the reason edibles don’t seem to work for you, don’t worry. There are tons of other cannabis products out there for you to enjoy. There’s nothing wrong with sticking to classic prerolls or flower. If you want something more discreet, vapes and tinctures are also great options. 


Effective Hemp-Derived Products for Everyone

Whether you’re looking to experiment with hemp-derived edibles, already know they work for you or want to stick with a different form of cannabis, Wild Orchard Hemp has you covered. We have a huge selection of products to suit every cannabis consumer.

The chemical process that creates Delta-8-THC would be known as isomerization, which is the process of arranging chemicals in a different order of two similar compounds (in this case, CBD and Delta-8-THC, which are both isomers and able to be arranged in a separate order through this process.) The process is as simple as re-arranging the chemical structure of CBD to convert it into Delta-8-THC. Nothing is being added to this process. As such, Delta-8-THC is still a naturally occurring chemical that is not truly a synthetic cannabinoid.

The Delta-8-THC, once the isomerization of the CBD compound occurs, is refined into a material called Delta-8-THC distillate once the material is initially made from the CBD. This additional process purifies the compound and ensures a clean chemical process when adding the Delta-8-THC distillate into other products such as flowers, ediblesvape pens, and cartridges. The purified distillate is added to various hemp flowers, which creates the Delta-8-THC flower. Suppose one has ever encountered the naturally occurring CBD flower. In that case, the process for Delta-8-THC flower is as simple as adding the distillate to synergize with the natural hemp plant. There is no one route that manufacturers and growers take to create Delta-8 hemp flowers. As such, different methods produce an array of other possible outcomes when the final Delta 8 flower is being packaged to the customer.
