HENDERSON, Nevada–Galaxy Treats, a Nevada-based brand of cannabinoids and active ingredients, has launched its Moon Shrooms Amanita Mushroom Gummies. These psychoactive gummies contain 350mg of amanita mushroom extract in every gummy and come in two flavors: Watermelon and Mango. They are designed to provide a relaxed and psychedelic experience.
Amanita mushrooms (Amanita Muscaria) are easily recognizable, with soft white bodies and striking red caps with white spots. They contain two psychoactive alkaloids: muscarine and ibotenic acid. These compounds convert into muscimol in the body or through a decarboxylation process. While these compounds may have hallucinogenic properties at high doses, they interact with different receptors than typical psychedelics such as psilocybin. For example, psilocybin interacts with neural transmitters like serotonin, while muscimol interacts with GABA receptors.
When taking a single serving of Galaxy Treats Moon Shrooms, you can expect a mildly psychedelic experience that has been described as “chill” and “relaxing.” It’s important to note that Amanita extracts are not as potent as psilocybin, and the active ingredients do not produce the same effects at standard doses. When taking a single serving, you may experience relaxation and better sleep quality, but you are unlikely to experience auditory hallucinations or other psychedelic effects, unless you take larger doses.
Currently, Amanita mushroom gummies and other products containing Amanita extracts are mostly legal in the United States. Since these mushrooms do not contain psilocybin, they have not been specifically targeted by the Controlled Substances list. However, Louisiana is the only state that has enacted regulations prohibiting the sale and distribution of Amanita extract products.
As psychedelics continue to become more accepted, the market is predicted to grow at an exponential rate. With the introduction of Moon Shrooms Amanita Mushroom Gummies, Galaxy Treats is well-positioned to be a leader in this category and will help drive growth and demand for retailers and distributors with its high-quality products, colorful branding, strong market presence, and extensive support programs for retailers and distributors. Regardless of personal views on psychedelics, consumer demand for these products is undeniable, and retailers that meet this demand are sure to capture this captive audience.
