Legal psychedelics, sometimes derived from mushrooms, are plentiful and available if you know where to look. Unlike other varieties of psychedelic fungi, amanitas—including Amanita muscaria, Amanita regalis, and Amanita pantherina—are legal in nearly every market, and other fungi varieties provide other effects. You don’t have to be stuck on psilocybin to change your perception as reform laws slowly unfold, as other psychedelic varieties are legal right now.
Research continues to suggest that amanita’s active ingredients muscimol and the hypnotic ibotenic acid are believed to provide benefits including helping to ease stress and anxiety, and it’s been used medicinally for hundreds of years.
Similarly, varieties of mushrooms are being used as adaptogens, supplementally. People are paying top dollar for rare fruits of Cordyceps sinensis and Cordyceps militaris for their believed benefits and use in Ancient China. (Cordyceps sinensis, costs over $20,000 per kilo.) Reishi mushrooms, aka Ganoderma lucidum, are also being explored for their effects on the immune system.
Here is High Times’ list of sites that sell psychedelic mushroom products that are legal and help you rewire your mind.
Mindful by Lucy
Master your mind with the help of mushrooms. BuyTrippy.com sells products including Mindful, a functional amanita mushroom-based product line. Mindful by Lucy capsules designed to enhance well-being and promote a mindful approach through the power of microdoses. Mindful by Lucy comes in jars of 60 capsules containing a microdose of Amanita muscaria-based compounds. It also contains fungi like Cordyceps to elevate energy, Reishi to adapt to stress, Lion’s Mane to ignite cognitive function, and other active ingredients.

Washington state mushroom supplier Soma Supplies sells Amanita muscaria and Amanita pantheroid varieties of mushrooms, both rich in muscimol and other active ingredients. Wholesale options are available. “Soma” is the mystery psychoactive drink mentioned in Vedic texts, and amanitas are one of the many substances possibly linked to it. At Soma, quantitative analyses of ibotenic acid and muscimol of samples are available, so you know exactly what you’re getting.
Wild Forest Herbs
Here you can buy hand-harvested Amanita muscaria in big red complete caps from Colorado-based Wild Forest Herbs. Workers find shrooms in the Colorado mountains and bring them to you. Dried mushroom caps are carefully dried in a stainless steel dehydrator with a continuous airflow and temperature of 115 degrees Fahrenheit to best preserve the mushroom and color, then stored in a dark location. This pulls out the toxins you don’t want. They also make an Amanita muscaria-infused topical balm and amanita stickers to represent.
Fun Guy by Eighty Six Brand
Hemp company Eighty Six Brand’s Fun Guy psychedelic wellness products are at “the forefront of the microdosing and holistic health movement,” the brand says. Fun Guy sells Amanita muscaria caps with 350 mg of pure amanita extract. They also have infused gummies in flavors such as strawberry, watermelon, and Blue Razz. You can also find hemp-derived products and other fun compounds.
Fly Amanita provides six varieties of fungi including Amanita muscaria, Amanita regalis, and Amanita pantherina mushrooms.

Then fly agaric mushrooms are packed into vacuum-sealed packages. You can buy up to two ounces, or larger quantities for wholesale. Fly Amanita also provides free worldwide shipping.
Bloomable Natural Products
Try microdosing amanita mushrooms with capsules.

If you’re on European shores, Happy Amanita provides several varieties of amanitas and amanita products.
