DOSE:
3 - 6 g oral Amanitas - A. muscaria (dried)
    smoked Cannabis  

BODY WEIGHT: 190 lb


3 grams amanita muscaria

start: 4:25pm

This is my first experience with the fly agaric. I have tried many other substances (including mdma, cannabis, lsd, kava, etc...). I have no prior experience with delirients. I bought them from an online vendor with a good reputation. I bought a half ounce but am starting with a low dose and working my way up.

I am at home on my week off before school and have been hesitating about trying this. The time for fear is over, down the hatch. My wife left and I am planning on having an introspective trip by myself. I'm a bit excited. Friends (tv sitcom) is on tv right now.

t+35mins: feeling a slight buzz, a warmth over my body especially in the extremities. I find concentration slightly harder.

t+60mins: Effects are still mild. It feels as if I've taken a good bong rip. Still watching tv to see if effects intensify.

t+80 mins: The only change is blurred vision. I am going to smoke a bowl of cannabis to jumpstart the effects.

t+120mins: All I feel is more foggy headed than cannabis usually does. I do not expect the effects to increase significantly. One of my concerns in the beginning was nausea but that has not occurred, in fact food sounds good.

t+180mins: sober with nothing to report.

possible conclusions: my batch is not good. A. muscaria is highly variable in muscimol content, my dose was too low, my setting was not appropriate.

5 grams amanita muscaria

start: 3:35

The next afternoon I woke up, had some coffee and took care of business. My sleep was typical without the lucid dreaming that is frequently mentioned in amanita's effects. So I am attempting this again with a slightly higher dose. No change to setting, still at home just chillin watching the tube and playing with my birds.

t+45mins: nothing to report. I am cleaning my house a little. I have not ate to help the effects come on quicker and stronger but now I regret it. FOOOOD!.....add one bowl of cannabis to this experiment.

t+100 mins: Warmth from inside the body and increased lethargy. mildly tired. Head is fuzzy for lack of better description. Listening to music and it sounds awesome. Mild euphoria

t+145 mins: oversalivation and sweating nothing further to report. I sobered up shortly after this.

A couple days later a little over six grams was consumed to no effect. So I'll stick to three possible conclusions: My batch is not good, and/or my dose was too low all three times, and/or my setting was not appropriate.
