Pantherina, Stronger than Muscaria
Let me start of the report by telling you about my former Muscaria experience. About 5 months before this had happened I ingested 4.5 grams of Fly Agaric, and had a very fun time. Subtly psychadellic, but a feeling similiar to smoking a lot of cannabis, and having about 4 beers. With that said now I can begin...
I ordered an ounce of Amanita Pantherina from an online source, after reading that they were typically around twice as strong as Muscaria. So I figure more bang for my buck, I guess thats an understatement.
So I decide to ingest a small amount of Pantherina at a party to get the same effect of the Muscaria. Originally was going to take around 3-4 grams but knew that it could be disasociative, and that wouldn't be very good for a party. Instead I decide on 2 grams and weigh out 2 small caps.
At about 40 minutes after ingestion I start to notice that I can no longer keep track of any conversation around me, and become very introverted. I decide that I would like to go lay down in my tent and try to regain my barings. So me and my girlfriend go laydown.
As soon as I get in the tent and lay down, my body feels like its been seperated into three different parts and continue to spin around until I concentrate to bring them together. I can still talk coherently, but it requires a ton of effort and would just rather remain silent anyways. At this point time and space kind of melt together. The best way to describe it is that I could have spent an hour, day, week, month, year, etc. in that tent and wouldn't be able to tell the difference.
After this I couldn't tell when I was awake or sleeping/tranced. But the entire time, long number sequences ascociated with a designated symbol. For example .08888888 was desiganted a sort of horse shoe symbol. I can't remember exactly what I used it for, just that it happened repeatedly through out the night. I also at points would be running through a large mushroom patch avoiding them, because if I were to touch a cap I would absorb it through my skin and then become higher then I wished to be. At one point I fell into a whole patch of them and my skin turned green, making me extremely high. I think this was my mind's interpretation of what happening to me.
At about 4 hours after ingestion I was completely delirious and was convulsing severly. My girlfriend was trying to calm me down by covering me up but my body temperature wouldn't regulate correctly. During this point I remember her telling me to calm down and breathe, but also I saw a man handing my tranquilizers the size of hockey pucks and telling me that would do the trick. After I woudl accept these imaginary horse pills I would calm down for who knows how long. I also remember at this point that I would never return to normal, and then passed out.
I slept for another 3 hours to wake up feeling extremely light headed and out of place. But other than that pretty much baseline. If I weren't someone who enjoys terror in trips, then it wouldn't have been a good experience at all. I think next time I'm going to ingest a gram and test the waters at that point.
The reason I wrote this report, is because before this I couldn't find any reports regarding dosage or experiences for Pantherina. Which I found extremely annoying. So I help this will gauge an idea of the strength of these mushrooms.
