Poisonous but rarely fatal - hallucinogenic (so I'm told!)
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
It's worth reading up on the relationship between nomadic Lapplanders, their reindeer, and this fungus: if only to realise how lucky we are to live in a lifestyle and climate that facilitates brewing alcohol!
I know what you mean!
Also there may be a connection to the English word "beserk".
The Berserkers where Norse warriors who worked themselves up into a frenzy before battle. Possibly under the influence of Amanita muscaria!
The more I know the more I realise I don't know
the 'recycled' method of consuming it?
It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase (which now, thankfully, seems to be going out of common usage) "on the p**s".
OK I've bought a reindeer from http://www.reindeergames-wi.com/Reindeer%20sales.htm ... (they are REALLY expensive) - now, what is it I do next???
Caribous 'R' us...
