The true chemical in toadstool mushrooms that makes you trip. It is converted from Ibotenic Acid in the body (or through a chemical reaction called decarboxylation) and causes vivid dreams and/or slight hallucinations. Muscimol generally takes two hours to effect the body once consumed because of the conversion from Ibotenic Acid. During this period, one would commonly fall asleep and have vivid dreams. When they awake, they begin to have visions and may be energetic.
"Muscimol can be acquired from that red mushroom with white spots you always see on Super Mario"
An adjective used to describe a drug or psychedelic mushroom that would give one visions or disorient their perception of what's around them.
Commonly known hallucinogens being LSD (acid), Amanita Muscaria (Super Mario Toadstool Mushroom), or even Salvia (Legal).
That which is hallucinogenic does NOT all have the same effect. Some have different side effects and some could make you hallucinate differently. An Amanita Muscaria mushroom (containing Ibotenic Acid/Muscimol) would make you trip differently than any Psilocybin containing mushroom.
"Dude, my mom took some hallucinogenic shrooms and thought I was a walking, talking joint."

When processed through the body, Ibotenic Acid is converted into Muscimol which makes you trip. This conversion can cause one to sweat, and create a feeling of nausea depending on how the mushroom is consumed. Consuming the wet mushroom WILL NOT work; it is generally made into a powder.
Ibotenic Acid is commonly contained in Amanita mushrooms. This includes but is not limited to the Amanita Muscaria (Super Mario Toadstool Mushroom), Amanita Crenulata, or Amanita Pantherina; (variation Multisquamosa, etc.)
"Last night I ate some of that wet mushroom containing the Ibotenic Acid and this morning I was shitting flames!"
