Amanita Pantherina cap is deep brown to hazel-brown to pale ochraceous brown mushroom, with densely distributed warts that are pure white to sordid cream, minutely verruculose, floccose, easily removable. Amanita pantherina contains the psychoactive compound muscimol, but is used as an entheogen much less often than its much more distinguishable relative Amanita muscaria.
Fly agaric has a long history of use in religious ceremonies, particularly in Asia. For over 4,000 years it was the ingredient in a sacred and hallucinogenic ritual drink called ‘soma’ in India and Iran; while the Siberian shamans would give it out as a gift in late December.
This mushroom has turned in alot of fairy tale stories and features in the story of Alice in Wonderland when she is given some amanita muscaria to eat.
