  smoked Salvia divinorum (extract)


I would like to start by saying that I am a longtime smoker of marijuana with over 40 years experience. I heard about salvia and that it was legal to buy in a smoke shop so I purchased 1 gram of 5X, and 1 gram of 10X. I had done research and thought I would start with the lowest dose and work my way up. I had my son in law with me when I packed a fat bowl, about 1/5 gram of 5X.

I held the hit for 30 seconds. Suddenly I felt things started to turn slowly to the left and I felt as though an Octagon formed around me as it was slowly spinning left and on the right side of me was a pure white wall pressing against me like a powerful force was behind it. I heard clearly voices from behind the wall asking me 'WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS'. I could feel these forces going through my body. I soon came down and was ok and not scared of the experience.

A few days later I tried it again without a sitter. I had the TV going and Sanford and Son was on. This time was very strange as I started tripping, I heard Red Foxx doing a standup routine and every joke was about me. The audience was laughing at me and every joke was aimed directly at me. I felt a strong amount of humiliation. When I came out of it, I felt that it was almost comical (PTP). I must say at this point I had no real fear of the experience.

Now on to (10X). This time I had a sitter, my father in law. I took a huge rip and held it in for at least 30 seconds. Upon exhale I counted to 5 and blacked out. When I came to all I saw was Red and Black rolling pins coming at me in a freakish cartoon. Now I was trapped! I felt an overwhelming feeling of grief and horror that I never felt before. I thought that I fucked my whole life and that I was stuck here forever. I must have been looking at my father in law because he looked like a gigantic cartoon caricature of himself. I was scared shitless. I felt like a pea in size and he was a giant. At that moment I felt like a little fish in a bowl and I was my father in law's pet. He owned me and I was his play thing. I was terrified!

After about a minute I remember he started to say 'ARE YOU OK' and this somehow gave me hope that he cared about me and was concerned about my well being. If he would have said something negative I think it would have made me go insane. He brought me back from the brink of a horrible experience. WARNING: If you are stupid enough to do salvia PLEASE have a sitter that knows and understands how powerful this shit is and knows how to comfort you through a horrifying journey.
