AGA Overview Information
Aga is a mushroom. Its cap is red with white spots. Aga grows in sandy, acidic soils in the US. It is sometimes called “fly agaric,” because some of the chemicals it contains are poisonous to the common housefly. Despite serious safety concerns, people use the parts of aga that grow above the ground to make medicine.
Aga is used in homeopathy for nerve pain, fever, anxiety, alcohol poisoning, and joint pains.
Some people use it as a recreational drug to cause “mind-altering sensations” that are something like hallucinations.
How does it work?
Aga mushrooms have chemicals that cause the brain to misunderstand what the body is seeing, hearing, tasting, and feeling.
