Plants of the Gods by R.E.Schultes AND Albert Hoffmann is a great reference.

Mycotopia also has a forum devoted to this exact type of gardening.

On a side note, read up on Richard Evans Schultes if you don't know about him. Very interesting dude.

Plants of the Gods

http://www.amazon.com/Plants-Gods-Sacred-Healing-Hallucinogenic/dp/0892819790

It's academic without being dry, really digs into the cultural context of the plant rather than being just stories of people talking about their "trips".

If you are interested in more information on the plants and some of their practices you should read Plants of Gods. It also has information about other cultures and plants uses around the world.

I have an older version of this https://www.amazon.com/Plants-Gods-Sacred-Healing-Hallucinogenic/dp/0892819790 which is quite good. I'd love to see the newer edition with color photos.

To give a short answer. Yes.

This is from a book about psychoactive plants i have. Because there are a lot of non factual answers here, I thought i post this. I had to write it all so there might be some spelling errors.

The chemistry of Fly Agaric

> The active principle of Amanita muscaria was thought once, a century ago, to have been muscarine when Schiedeberg and kope isolated this substance. this belief has been proven erroneous. Recently Eugster in Switzerland and Takemo in Japan isolated ibotenic acid and the alkaloid muscimole as being responsible for the Fly Agaric's psychotropic effects. The mushroom is taken usually dried. The drying process induces the chemical transformation ibotenic acid to muscimole, the most active constituent.

...Amanita muscaria may be the oldest of the hallucinogens and perhaps was once the most used...

A little background summary from me:


It's been used by many different cultures in the past and has been associated with many different gods, There is evidence suggesting it's been used in India, Siberia and The America's, (From Mesoamerica to the north of Canada.


If you're interested in these kind of things, i suggest you try to find some literature about it. The Encyclopedia of Psychoactive Plants: Ethnopharmacology and Its Applications, Plants of the Gods: Their Sacred, Healing, and Hallucinogenic Powers, Psychedelics Encyclopedia. It's amazon link's but you can find them anywhere.

Terrence McKenna spoke about it, as did Schults, Hofman, and Ratsch in Plants of the Gods.

Soma is an entirely different matter, and my guess is that it is Amanita muscaria or possibly cubensis.
