Psychoactive Amanitas are mushrooms which contain the psychoactive chemicals ibotenic acid and muscimol. They have a long history of use in Asia and Northern Europe. They are best known for their distinctive appearance (bright reds and yellows with white spots).
There are many species of mushrooms in the Amanita genus which are not psychoactive. Some are deadly poisonous while others are edible.
