Not What I Expected
Amanita muscaria
by JDoe
Citation:   JDoe. "Not What I Expected: An Experience with Amanita muscaria (exp8568)". May 21, 2004.

10 g oral Amanitas - A. muscaria (dried)


I don't think the experience that I had with Amanita muscaria was something I could prepare for. It was supposed to be a fun and exciting night but this mushroom totally screwed everything up.

I had just gotten home from work when I decided to eat some of the mushrooms that I has purchased from a internet supplier. I started by eating small pieces of the cap and soon shoved the whole thing in my mouth. This mushroom has a taste that becomes very unpleasent with time. Around a half an hour after ingesting the shroom matter I began to feel a slight dizzy-ness and a bit of nausea. The nausea proceeded to get worse until the point where I just wanted to get the stuff out of my stomach. This didn't work well due to the small amount of matter in my stomach, but I eventually brought myself to puking it up. After that things got a little better, and I think it is due to the fact that the mushroom was out of my stomach. I still has the effect of being dizzy but it was extremely elavated. This dizzy-ness lasted for a few hours and I went to sleep.

Overall I do not suggest this as a means of getting a buzz. The taste coupled with the nausea created a horrible experience that I would rather not try again.
