Amanitas - A. muscaria
Citation: Alice. "But No Wonderland: An Experience with Amanitas - A. muscaria (exp21833)". Erowid.org. Aug 2, 2018. erowid.org/exp/21833
I bought 3 dried caps (14g) by mail order, soaked them overnight and made a very tasty soup from them, soaking water included. I ate nothing until 11AM, then the soup.
For about 1 hour I noticed no effect at all, then I got tired and was lying down. I had planned to keep track of my experiences so I had paper and pencil ready. I made 15 entries in reasonably clear and constant handwriting, but I do not remember writing anything but the first. there are also several impossible time sequences in the record.
The most pervading memory is that I was in a dream within a dream and a vivid perception of duality of things, which I find surprising, since the mushroom is associated with mystical unity. there were no visual or auditory hallucinations at all even though I think of myself as a very visual person. The whole experience was intense but neither pleasant nor unpleasant. I never did any other drugs, so I have no comparison, but on the whole it was rather disappointing, maybe it was a bad idea to cook the mushrooms, but I figured if they can be smoked a little hot water won't hurt either. There was no hangover at all.
Here is the log:
11:30 Nothing except I'm hot for a while. I crack the window, any hot soup would do that. A little more saliva than usual, but that could be suggested by the reports I read before
12:15 restless, cold toes (I remember going to bed and covering up)
12:30 speeding up ( I remember quick breathing and heart rate, and slightly shaking hands)
2:00 threw up ( I also cleaned up, but cannot remember that I did)
2:00 dreamed that I dreamed
12:30 dreamed that I dreamed (this time I wrote in another language)
12:30 I'm writing that I am dreaming
3:30 went to kitchen. I am in (cityA) NOT in (cityB) strange. back to bed
3:00 woke up
3:45 something is ringing
4:15 ate some chips, tired
