Fly Agaric for Menstrual Pain

Last night I cooked up 1 gram of fly agaric for the purposes of smoking and reducing menstrual pain. I heated it at 150-175 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes, occasionally stirring the fly agaric. After letting it cool, I took about half of what I cooked, and put it in a pipe to smoke with a small amount of cannabis.

While the smoke didn't taste bad, the smoke was harsh on my lungs. I finished smoking my bowl within minutes, as fly agaric seems to burn quickly. While I did notice some immediate effects, such as lightheadedness and mood improvement, I couldn't get over the accelerated heartbeat it gave me. Luckily, it didn't trigger a panic attack, but it could have if I continued smoking the material. For me, it didn't seem worth risking a panic attack over that mild of a high, as I would need to smoke a large amount of fly agaric for it to work. I decided to just orally consume the rest of my material
I decided to just orally consume the rest of my material
, by using the toss and wash method. I don't find fly agaric's taste unpleasant, so I didn't mind it.

Within the next few hours, there was an improvement in my general state, and it seemed to help distract me from the menstrual pain I was in. Enough so, that I could go about other activities, without being focused on the pain. While none of this was particularly noteworthy for a microdose experiment, about three hours in I noticed a substantial decrease in my pain levels. As I'm not sure if this was related to the fly agaric or not, I'll have to repeat this method to see if I get that amount of pain relief again. But I'll be sticking to taking my fly agaric orally, as smoking it was too uncomfortable to be a worthwhile venture for me.
