A Pleasant Experience
I had an amazing trip with some friends on the Aminitas. My personal preparation was to eat lightly the day before and fast the day of the experience. I had 3 other people help me consume about 2 oz. The three other people ate lightly that day. We consumed the mushrooms by dipping them in belgian chocolate pudding, hummus and several other dips to make them edible. After the consumption of the mushrooms we smoked a little bit of weed to avoid feeling any nausea.
The initial effects were similar to marijuana. After smoking I wondered if it wasnt just the weed but then the intense body high began to kick in. I dont really have a clear memory of the amount of time it took me to feel the effects but the transition from being stoned to having an intense and enjoyable body high was smooth. My friends and I were watching run lola run with our baby sitters. I felt as if I were inside the movie. When I got up to get a blanket for someone I could feel every bit of skin in my body. It was odd because everything was as sensitive as my eyeballs.
I drifted off to sleep and then woke up after about a half hour to notice that all of my surroundings had changed. I was in the same room but I felt very deeply rooted in my body. No colors had changed but the feeling of being in something somewhat mystical and foreign was certainly there. Two of the other people taking mushrooms were experiencing similar feelings. Our fourth person who took the lightest dose feel asleep. She later reported having very lucid and pleasant dreams. The three remaining trippers gathered in my room to watch the visual effects of the itune program. Its strange because trippy things would make my body trip out a lot more instead of increasing the visuals. Overall the purely visual aspect was fairly light but became quite pronounced with the added power of the massive body high.
Overall I would rate my aminita experience as a very pleasurable one. The key is to check the potency, be around people you know and enjoy and to eat them on a light stomach to decrease the chance of throwing up. I will certainly do this mushroom again.
