My first experience with amanita muscaria was when I smoked it.
I mixed it in a joint with tobacco, damiana and hash and it was therfore very easy to smoke.
Except for sweating and feeling dizzy I didn't feel any negative effects.
But yeah, I did this just once and never smoked mushrooms since then.
The ceremony with muscaria tea was much more intense, we took more of the mushroom and also had a different and better setting.
