Amanitas - A. muscaria & Cannabis

This is my first time I choose to 'do a trip.' My partner found A. muscaria a couple weeks ago. We picked some and I did extensive research. I found that the type we choose was the American variety. I have it double checked with a friend that typically hunts mushrooms, both for normal consumption and tripping.
Upon getting the materials ready and a plan stated out (I am an herbalist at home so I had a full dose of activated charcoal ready, a list of medications and health problems ready... just in case), we went on with testing strength. By we, I mean I was the one consuming and my partner was the sober one, and my anchor. We are both shamans, and being a first use for me, I thought the safer route would be best.
So, I prepared it as a tea. I used 3.5g of the mushroom, dried. I used tap water and simmered the brew on the stove for about 30 mins. Drained the water in the cup and set aside the mushrooms, just in case. I added 2 tsp sugar, and ½ tsp lime juice. Stirred and added a black tea bag. I let it steep for 5 to 10 mins (I like strong teas) and allowed it to cool for a quick consumption.
Listed below is a small time lapse what I had written out during my experience. Keep in mind, my typing is fairly straight because I have two issues, I like as close to proper grammar as I can get (Heh, says the person that screws it up everywhere), and primarily because I have found that during any substance that I have taken, when I type something out I get hyper focused. 9 times out of 10, I manage to get what I need typed... even if it takes FOREVER.
4:15pm: First part of the glass down. Tea, black, with sugar and lime juice. It seems to hit the tummy a little hard. A small sip of sprite after helps with the after taste. Might be better warm and not cold. Ate about 2 hours ago.
4:43pm: So far not too much of an effect. A little relaxed and it's still a little heavy in the tummy. I'm feeling mostly some pressure on the front lobe of my brain between my temples and sliding every so often over the crown of my head. I also can't find a type of music I can settle with.
5:03pm: Some upset tummy, not too bad. Also a little bit of distortion starting with the eyes. A little bit of a wave and falling effect coming over my body. Slight changes in room temp seems to be felt. Other then that it's mostly a cuddly, relaxed feeling.... Also, a little bit of trouble finding the proper keys without looking at the keyboard and screen.
5:30pm: Other then stated above, no new effects besides worse tummy upset. Smoking a little LTW [cannabis] to help with that.
7:00pm: Just finished a round of sex. Now I feel like laying down for a few.
7:31pm: Peak of the trip has been hit. I can see sounds. Very mild color changes. I can see mostly shapes that were outlining other shapes in the room. Everything is slightly wobbly and it takes some will to stay on a single topic.
9:45pm: Most of the effects have worn off. I feel really hungry and sleepy. Smoked a little more LTW, ate, and about to watch a movie. Honestly I didn't have much of an effect that I was looking for. I think I'll try a slightly higher dose the next time around.
Things not listed above that I did need to note, I had a lot of head pressure through this experience. Almost like someone took a vice to it and had it clamped slightly tighter then normal. My tummy stayed heavy (like I ate rocks) through most of it. The LTW seemed to ease most of it and allowed me to eat (I ate pasta and brownies while drinking hot cider and sprite).
I also noticed that I liked a lot of touching once the peak started to come up and the “uncomfortable” phase left

(I won't complain, but I didn't feel that bad this time around. I was actually disappointed at that fact. Heh). All the touching felt amazing. Like... when someone takes their fingers and tails them down my back... well that movement right there made it feel like little sparks of fire were left behind after the warmth of the hand left my skin. It was... need I say... YES! Heh.
After I laid down from my romp, I thought I was going to fall asleep. That didn't happen. I drifted on a blackness before my entire body jumped and then fell, fully rousing me from any rest. I then started to talk to my partner as the room spun and shapes took place. Not intense like I expected, but ever so slightly. We turned on Rodger Rabbit, and I spent the next couple hours in and out of a trance like state. After that we watched one more before bed.
INFO ON LTW: Hybrid made by crossing Lemon Haze and Trainwreck. Started with about ¼ tsp ground and smoked. By the end of the night I had smoked (and shared) about 1 tsp.
