Soma is known to most readers as the stimulant, euphorant and hallucinogen in Aldous Huxley's novel Brave New World. Few people know that the plant soma actually exists and has been used as a narcotic since the time of India's earliest civilizations. In Ancient Indian mythology Soma, the brother of Indra, was the giver of health, courage, long life, a sense of immortality, and almost every other virtue known.  Some have pondered whether or not Amanita muscaria is the soma of lore, but since these mushrooms are listed as poisons by the FDA, the answer is irrelevant.  Since these are listed as posions by the FDA, our Amanita muscaria is not intended for consumption in any way, period.

FURTHER AMANITA RESOURCES AND INFORMATION

Amanita muscaria, the highly visible and strikingly beautiful mushroom, also known as the Fly Agaric, is yellow to red in color and speckled with white. Amanita muscaria is probably humanity's oldest entheogen. Amanita muscaria's history has it associated with both Shamanic and magical practices and it was identified as the "Soma" of the ancient (4000 BC) Rig Veda by Gordon Wasson, although many disagree.

So Amanita muscaria potentially has historical use as far back as we have history, and it shouldn't be hard to suppose that prehistoric man, in his activities as hunter/gatherer, recognized that there were mushrooms and other plants that had benefits not related to hunger. Our ancestors must surely have been intrigued by the Amanita muscaria. They appeared magically from nowhere, in strange and beautiful shapes and colors and gave magical visions of the beyond when eaten.

Today Amanita muscaria mushrooms are widely known: the Alice in Wonderland mushrooms, and the "Christmas" mushrooms, especially in Germany, where the Amanita is a common fixture of Christmas.  Strangely enough, they are so embedded in folklore, that most people aren't aware that they are, in fact, real. This is the mushroom almost always found in fairy tales with its big red cap and speckled appearance. This mushroom has also been referred to as "Soma" although this is a topic of great controversy.

Amanita muscaria is a mushroom found throughout the northern hemisphere. It has been found to be psychoactive by oral ingestion and inhalation, though, again, it has been listed as a poison by the FDA because the Amanita family of mushrooms is responsible for about 90% of all mushroom-related deaths.  The infamous Death Cap is the biggest culprit.  For clarity, we strictly offer these Amanitas as botanical specimens only, as additions to any Shaman's Garden, as an ingredient in potpourri, as decoration, or any other use that does not involve ingestion.

  • Ethnobotanical Tools in the Ancient Near East ( - by William A.

The suggestion is made that early civilizations in the area of the Fertile Crescent employed Datura, Cannabis, Claviceps, Mandragora, Nymphaea, Vitis, and possibly Papaver as medicaments and ritual entheogens.
