Get Ready to Enter the Realm of Mushroom Gummies

Get Ready to Enter the Realm of Mushroom Gummies 

Up until now, most of us have associated “gummies” with cannabis – more specifically, cannabinoids like delta 8 THC, delta 9 THC, delta 10 THC, THC-P, HHC, and so on, derived from the hemp plant.  But now, there’s a whole new style of gummy out there, which switches out cannabinoids for psychedelic mushroom extracts.  Mushroom gummies are taking over the market, and they’re coming to Wild Orchard. 

Basically, mushroom gummies offer a whole new way to get high.  Still, the effects of these psychedelic mushrooms are different from delta 8, delta 9, and the hemp derivatives we are used to having.

What are Mushroom Gummies?

Mushroom gummies are a category of edibles that are infused with the extract of psychoactive mushrooms – amanita mushrooms, to be more exact.  These fruity gummy candies are delicious, and they make it easy to take these mushrooms intuitively in terms of dosing, not to mention the fact that they require no effort.

Back in the day, the only way to get the effects of amanita mushrooms was to buy the mushrooms in dried form, and either eat them that way, or simply bake with them yourself.  With gummies, you don’t have to do a thing, but open the package and pop one into your mouth.

Of course, you will find all kinds of mushroom gummy choices out there.  You can find unique flavors, different formulas, vegan and non-vegan options, and different milligram strengths (the number of milligrams of mushroom extract per piece).  

Psychedelic Mushroom Gummies: Are They Legal in the United States?

Let’s just get one thing established: amanita mushrooms are, and always have been legal in the United States – with the exception of one state: Louisiana.  Otherwise, these are federally legal mushrooms.  We know that may be surprising, given the fact that they’re intoxicating.  However, mushrooms that’re banned in the United States are those that get their psychedelic effects from psilocybin, and amanita mushrooms do not contain any psilocybin.  Instead, they contain the active compound muscimol, which is also psychedelic, but not prohibited.

Amanita Mushrooms: The Basics

Amanita mushrooms are nothing new.  They’ve been used for thousands of years, mainly for spiritual purposes.  Famously, they’re the mushrooms used in Viking ceremonies.  Also, Amanita Muscaria has a long history of use in religious ceremonies amongst Siberian Shamans.  They would use these poisonous mushrooms to achieve a trance-like state and spiritual growth.

Now, rthere are two key types of amanita mushrooms:

  • Amanita muscaria mushrooms are by far the more sought-after, and if you’ve ever used that mushroom emoji on your phone before, you know what they look like.  They’re famous for their red cap with white polka dots, and short stem.  
  • Amanita pantherina mushrooms look the same, except the cap is beige instead of red.

We mentioned earlier that these mushrooms get their psychedelic qualities from muscimol – a compound that’s a little less intense in the psychedelic aspect than psilocybin, but trippy just the same.  What makes muscimol different is the way it works with GABA receptors in the brain, offering more sedating, dissociative effects.  In low doses, this can be great for things like anxiety, depression, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  In higher doses, it can provide major insight, introspection, and feelings of enhanced spirituality. 

What Can You Expect from Taking Mushroom Gummies?mushroom gummies magic gummies edibles

It’s nice that you now have a general idea of what mushroom gummies can offer, but for anyone who’s new to the idea, we still want to go a bit more in-depth about what you can expect after taking/consuming them.

Keep in mind that like all things, the experience you will have with these gummies has a lot to do with how much you take.  Like we discussed prior, lower doses may give you a sense of stress relief, and a mood boost.  Higher doses mean you might experience hallucinatory effects (mostly visual) and a general trip-like experience.  Because of that, we do strongly recommend that you go with the recommended dosage on the product’s label as a beginner.

Also, take note that everyone’s experience is going to be a little bit different.  That’s just the nature of taking anything intoxicating – after all, two people can get different effects from something as simple as a glass of wine.  

Are Mushroom Gummies Safe?

We get that you’re going to be a little worried about taking something as potentially powerful as psychedelic mushrooms for the first time.  But, rest assured, there is no reason to worry about any serious health consequences.  Maybe you’ve come across info online about how amanita mushrooms are toxic and dangerous.  But, that’s only when they’re consumed raw – aka fresh – which’s not something you will ever find in mushroom gummies.  

When taken raw, they can cause neurological effects, and major damage to the kidneys and liver.  Luckily, simply boiling them for the right amount of time destroys these toxic compounds.  The extract used in mushroom gummies contains none of these toxins, as any legitimate company knows how to prepare them properly.  

Now, that doesn’t mean that you should just pop a handful of gummies into your mouth.  Of course, since they are intoxicating, taking too many of them can lead to an unpleasant experience.  As many of us know already, too high of a dose can lead to:

  • Paranoia
  • Unpleasant visual hallucinations
  • Heightened anxiety
  • A level of impairment that can make certain activities dangerous – like driving, hiking, or handling sharp objects.

How Many Mushroom Gummies Should You Take Then, and When Should You Take Them?

Lots of people enjoy a daily mushroom regimen for an established wellness, while others consume their mushroom edibles as needed.  Depending on the blend, potency, and your individual needs, you will likely want to begin with one and slowly ramp up based on your response.

As far as when you take your mushroom gummies, this depends on what mushroom blend you’re consuming.  If your blend supports energy, you likely don’t wanna take it prior to going to sleep.  On the flip side, there are mushroom gummies crafted to help you kick back and chill out – best not to drive, operate any heavy machinery, or do any tasks that require critical thinking/making choices since you will be almost in a “couchlock effect” state.

How to Choose the Best Mushroom Extract Gummies

Unfortunately, not all mushroom gummies are created equally in terms of overall quality.  This means that when shopping for mushroom gummies, it’s crucial to ensure you’re getting the most bang-for-your-buck in terms of mushroom potency – and you’re purchasing from a company that uses top manufacturing practices. 

Below is what you need to watch out for when selecting those tasty and effective mushroom gummies:

  • Certified organic
  • The utilization of fruiting bodies rather than strictly mycelia or mycelium on grain
  • Sustainable and ethical harvesting
  • 3rd-party laboratory testing
  • Vegan and gluten-free
  • Dual extraction methods

Mixing Your Mushroom Gummies with Other Wild Orchard Co. Products: What You Need to Know!

One thing we want to touch upon is whether or not it’s advisable to throw some cannabinoids into your mushroom trip.  After all, at Wild Orchard Co., we’re big proponents of legal psychoactive cannabinoids – that’s sort of the basis of our entire business.  

To answer that question, there is no evidence that taking cannabinoids and amanita mushrooms together is dangerous.  Likely, it’s not going to cause any physical harm.  However, if you’re new to these mushrooms, there may be a synergistic effect that could be unpleasant.  Taking two intoxicating substances together always puts you at higher risk of more impairment, or elevated anxiety.  Because of that, we recommend that you take these mushrooms by themselves the first few times.

Also, as a side note, before taking mushroom gummies or mixing them with other cannabinoid-infused products, it is best to speak with your doctor/physician first.  They have access to your medical history, including any current medications you are, hence they can make a proper determination if taking mushroom gummies, or combining them with hemp-based products is advisable.
