Amanita Mushroom Capsules Product Review

Amanita Mushroom Capsules
Written by Leah Johnson

Today’s product review will focus on a no-nonsense product type in the form of Amanita Mushroom Capsules. Let’s dive in!

Did you hear about what happens if you take a final exam on magic mushrooms? Supposedly you’ll pass with…flying colors! Bad puns aside, you’ll want to scoot your toadstool a bit closer as I outline my experience with featuring a compound that’s sweeping the industry: Amanita Mushrooms! Today’s product review will focus on a no-nonsense product type in the form of Amanita Mushroom Capsules.

Since actual magic mushrooms are still wildly illegal, these capsules contain mushroom powder that’s been carefully purged of any psilocybin to comply with federal regulations. I recently reviewed another Amanita Mushroom product, the Blue Razz Gummies in the form of soft and chewy edible, so I’m curious and excited to see how these capsules are in comparison. I’ll start off by briefly mentioning what the Amanita Mushroom brand has to say about these simple capsules and what to expect. 

The Basics For Amanita Mushroom’s Capsules 

The name “Amanita Mushrooms” is for both the brand name as well as the product type. If you’re new to trying any legal mushroom product, this might be confusing at first glance; it sure was for me! I scanned the QR code on the back of the plastic tube that the capsules came in but was redirected to a DropBox link for all of the brand’s CoA (Certificate of Authenticity) results.

Amanita Powder: The basic element most Amanita Products use

While this was great to see, it didn’t redirect me to the official website. I ended up just entering the brand name into my web browser to find the official site. This irked me as I wasn’t able to find the website quickly, an annoyance that could have easily been avoided by listing the official site on the label itself. Not a dealbreaker, but I felt this would have simplified future ordering from the brand. Once I did find the official website, I was met with another dilemma: the site has two options for mushroom capsules. After several more minutes of comparing the two, I’m fairly certain I found the correct ones listed at $12.99 for 3 capsules, $24.99 for 6, and $39.99 for 10.

There was a sale going on at the time of this review, so prices may vary depending on when you purchase them. However, there was one final snag in trying to figure out which capsule type I was consuming. There were four different options of Muscaria/Pantherina levels: Spiritual (1:2:1), Energy (2:1:1), Reflect (1:1:2), and Mood (1:1:1). Unfortunately, there was absolutely no information mentioned on the label to confirm which one I received, so I’ll be doing this review completely blind. 

There is no recommended dosage listed on either the product packaging or in the site’s product description. This was frustrating as not everyone’s tolerance is the same, and it would have been very helpful to have a starting point. The description mentioned that the capsules were vegan and are 100% free of Ibotenic Acid. The capsules contain 0.35 grams (350mg) of Amanita Mushroom Extract and 5.6 grams of muscimol.

A lot of these terms were unfamiliar to me, but there was an additional FAQ section further down that explained in simple verbiage what each of these unfamiliar words signified. I personally felt that the site could have used a better layout with more eye-catching graphics and details, but I can understand how minimalists and no-nonsense consumers might appreciate this. Barely satisfied with my experience so far, it was time to check out the actual product: the Amanita Mushroom capsules! 

Amanita Mushroom Capsules Product Review 

Capsules, while offering a direct and simple product type, are a bit of a no-frills or exciting product type to review. No scent, no taste, no nonsense! Simply swallow and that’s it! The capsules I received came in a plain plastic pill bottle; slightly opaque and quite similar to the pharmaceutical ones (but not orange). There was a single sticker that wrapped halfway around the container that outlined the total milligram count (350mg) and a large black X marking the total amount of capsules within (options were for 3, 6, or 10).

While there was no mention of a recommended dosage, a disclaimer suggested that the effects would kick in anywhere between 30-45 minutes. The instructions did state that you need to squeeze the sides after tearing off the pull tab, thus popping open the top of the bottle. I followed those instructions and got my first glimpse of the capsules.  

Appearance, Scent, & Taste

In lieu of the capsules not having any scent or taste, the only thing to really review in this section would be their appearance and size. The capsules were about the size of a quarter and very light. The capsule itself was clear so I could see the mushroom powder inside, a light tan color. The capsule had no discernable scent or taste (both of which I expected). The capsules were a little intimidating once they were on my tongue but I was able to easily swallow them with a swig of water. I didn’t feel any pain while or after swallowing, which was a relief. I glanced at the clock and noted the time, unsure of exactly when I’d feel the effects, but curious to experience them nonetheless. 

Time Elapsed To Feel Effects 

I’ll preface this by saying I ended up blowing through all six of these capsules to try to establish some sense of consistency. I initially tried one, but after more than an hour had passed, I felt nothing. The next time I tried the capsules, I once again tried only one; it took about 45 minutes before I thought I felt something. However, the effects were very minimal. The effects seemed extremely dulled and almost muted, like I was imagining them out of desperation to feel anything at all. The third time I popped two of the capsules into my mouth but fell asleep after waiting bored for an hour. The fourth and final time, I took two capsules very early to see if the capsules had a delayed reaction time. That seemed to do the trick, as it took about an hour and fifteen minutes to start feeling some very noticeable effects. 

Effects Felt During the High – 2 Capsules (Final Time)

The two times that I tried just one capsule in each session didn’t seem to bring any noticeable effects. Instead, the effects I had were almost like a sputtering flame, like a match trying so hard to burn into a roaring fire but simply could not. This is what prompted me to take two capsules; I suspected I simply hadn’t taken a strong enough dosage for my tolerance levels. The fourth time that I tried the capsules, I down two but must not have allotted enough time for them to kick in. But the second time I took two capsules earlier in the evening, those did indeed deliver a very different kind of high.  

If you don’t mind drying the mushrooms yourself, the Amanita caps are your perfect choice

After about an hour, I noticed a very strong sense of uneasiness coming over me. My chest felt uncomfortably tight and constricted, very similar to the unpleasantness accompanied with indigestion. I experienced a shortness of breath and waves of nausea that made me feel queasy and unsure of myself. My eyes felt droopy and I felt a distinct tingling in my back, a sensation that I’d never felt before. My face and the tops of my hands were also “buzzy” but it wasn’t a warm comfortable tingling that I enjoyed.

This was very different from a Delta-8 THC high in that I was very acutely aware that I wasn’t sober, but none of the euphoria or familiar effects were present (haziness, slowed sense of time, blurred vision, couch lock). I experienced a sense of urgency to do things quickly, like a growing sense of uneasiness that seemed to intensify every few minutes. I became weary of my surroundings and walked quickly to my bed in hopes that laying down would help. 

Once fully wrapped up in my warm blankets, I felt cold yet very awake. I was relieved that the nausea dissipated somewhat and my eyes closed to ward off the sense of dizziness. This also helped, but I couldn’t shake the growing discomfort of knowing that something was off, and not in a good way. One very uncomfortable sensation that followed when I closed my eyes was that it felt like parts of my body were solidifying and I grew more irritable with every passing minute. I became adverse to touching anything, acutely aware that this high was not enjoyable. I wished for the high to be over and managed to fall into a grumpy slumber. I woke up about an hour later, still high, feeling extremely uncomfortable and bewildered. The blankets felt rough and smothering on my skin, causing me to toss and turn restlessly. Thankfully, this only lasted about ten minutes before I was somehow able to fall back asleep until morning. 

What exactly is Muscimol and what are its effects?

Longevity of The High

Not a single session with these capsules produced consistent results; it was a guessing game from the first session to the last, filled with impatience and frustration. One capsule had no effect, while two capsules were too much. The final session of two capsules lasted for about three hours, which delivered an overwhelming and uncomfortable high that I did not enjoy. There were very minimal waves of feeling high that rose up and tapered off to feeling not high at all. I remember wishing for the effects to go away completely, as I was not enjoying myself at any part of the high. 

Lingering Effects The Next Day

Upon waking the following morning, I was so relieved to see sunlight streaming through my windows. I was grateful to not feel any lingering effects, but I strongly remembered the effects from the night before. I distinctly remember thinking that I did not enjoy the high and was not interested in trying the capsules again. I was able to start my day with no mental fog or cobwebs to battle before feeling “normal” again. 

Amanita Mushroom Capsules – Final Thoughts  

I pride myself on finding at least one or two redeeming qualities, but the Amanita Mushroom capsules made that extremely difficult. From difficulty locating the exact type of capsules these were on the official website to struggling with the correct dosage, I knew I was in for a rough experience. The actual high was elusive with a single capsule and overpowering with two capsules. The effects were unpleasant and unwanted, something that is extremely rare when I reflect on how many products I’ve had the opportunity to review.

The Amanita Mushroom gummies that I reviewed were much more pleasant, but I’d implore the brand to go back to the drawing board with these capsules. It breaks my heart to give a product a poor review, but these capsules were not enjoyable during any of the four sessions that I consumed them. I’m sure the Amanita Mushrooms brand has a variety of excellent products, but unfortunately, I do not feel that these capsules reflect well on the brand overall. For these reasons, I must rate the product a 1-star rating out of 5 possible stars. 

If you’re brave enough to try these capsules for yourself, I’m extremely curious to see how your experience is. I encourage you to share your experiences in the comments below! I realize that legal psychedelics and psychoactive compounds are unique to the individual, meaning that the effects of my high may be better or worse than yours. In my next product review, I’ll be returning to the beloved Delta Extrax brand, this time reviewing a duet of Apple Fritter & Berry Pie vape carts. I love all things sweet and dessert flavored and I’m excited to see what effects may follow after a puff or two of these unique flavors. I look forward to seeing you again soon as I continue to review a variety of products available in the hemp and mushroom industry. Until we meet again!
