Tonight I finally touched my bag of 10 grams grade A Amanita Muscaria powder. I've had it for a few months now, but have always been quite anxious about drinking it as a tea.
However, after reading on the internet about smoking it, even though sources are quite uncommon, I decided to go ahead with it.
I filled my little pipe with the amanita powder and took a small hit to test the smoke. The smoke was very nice to smoke, nice and soft. I took another hit. After 30 seconds I felt an obvious alteration. My body felt like a few hits of cannabis and my thoughts seemed a lot more random, thinking about unusual things. I had to get used to the feeling. It felt somewhat familiar, but it had a feeling in it, I couldnt place. On one hand I felt like I wanted to lie down and enjoy, but on the other hands there were my faster than usual thoughts.
After 10-15 minutes I took 2 substantial hits and I felt very drowsy after 2 minutes. I decided to lie down. Now the sedative qualities of amanita became apparant. I went into a dreamlike state, interpreting the sounds of the music and feeling very comfortable. 30 minutes later I "woke" up.
I actually liked amanita quite a lot. I still have more than enough left, so I'm sure I'll be trying it more often.
