Sinus Relief
Psychoactive Amanita spp. & Ginger

Citation:   Scott. "Sinus Relief: An Experience with Psychoactive Amanita spp. & Ginger (exp56152)". Erowid.org. Jan 19, 2008. erowid.org/exp/56152

 
DOSE:
14 g oral Amanitas (dried)
  1 Tbsp oral Ginger (edible / food)

BODY WEIGHT: 200 lb


I took half an ounce of the dried mushrooms via chewing them up and swallowing them. I also took a spoonful of ginger to relieve the nausea. They didn't taste bad, but weren't good either.

It has been 2 hours since I have taken them, and it feels like the effects I usually get with 5 shots of vodka, but at the same time completely different. I can think clearly, my balance isn't affected very much and I don't have drymouth. I actually have the opposite in that my sinsus are completely cleared up and not dried up. I have chronic sinus problems and they were dried up and runny the whole day.

I smoked a cigarette and then part of a cigar an hour and a half after taking them and threw up afterwards. Nicotine doesn't seem to mix well. I will definitely use these mushrooms again the next time I want to feel relaxed and ready for a good night's sleep.
