Amanita pantherina in the wild.

This mushroom contains the psychoactive compounds ibotenic acid and muscimol which can cause effects such as hallucinations, synaesthesia, euphoria, dysphoria and retrograde amnesia. The effects of muscimol and ibotenic acid most closely resemble that of a Z drug, like Ambien at high doses, and not a classical psychedelic, i.e. psilocybin.
