Salvia Experiments

After hearing about salvia I decided to try it. Got a gram of *5 extract. The first time found me a friend and my girlfriend at my friends house. We dimmed the lights (not knowing what to expect). He had the sliding glass door opened, I leaned over the couch, smoked 1/16 of a gram, and waited. Soon I got the nagging feeling that the backyard was moving farther and father away, I looked up and either it was moving, or stretching, I couldnt tell for sure. I turned around, sat on the couch. Everyone was looking at me, waiting to see what I would do. I said, do an 8th to my friend.

He leaned out to smoke his and I sat there. It felt like the whole room was moving. And I was being pulled, not in any peticular direction, just being pulled. I could look at the room, and see that nothing was moving, but I could feel it, kinda like riding in a car. My friend and my girl did up their hits, twice as much as mine as I tried the lowest suggested dose. Soon I felt pretty much sober and I stood up. Nope, definitely not completely sober. My balance was very off. I couldnt put my figer on it, but I felt strange.

The feeling wore off and I started talking to my friend. He said he felt the pull too. Backwards, he felt like he was being pulled backwards. He liked it. My girl didnt though. She felt the pull too. However, maybe because my friend and I are experienced drug users, we were back to norm in about five minutes. My girlfriend wasnt. She kinda freaked out. She got hot, then cold, then hot, she was very uncomfortable. We had to leave. I borrowed my friends bowl so I could try again since I only got half the dose they did. Soon she was back to normal, she said she felt really weird, her skin seemed rubbery, everything was off. She said she thought it was just the fact that she didnt want to be there anyway.

Later that night I tried again. This time in my room and with a 8th of a gram in the bowl. Turned on the blacklight and a mellow trance cd. My girl sat in a chair next to my bed. As I let out the second hit, everything got WEIRD. It seemed my entire feild of vision was trying to turn to the right. I could feel the pull that was doing it. I could see, but I couldnt understand what was going on. I heard a BANG, and saw my girlfriend with black light coming out of her, I was scared, I knew that there was only black behind me, if I was seeing out of the back of my head, what would be there???I wanted to see though too, I wanted to know, but my moment of resistance stopped it, I sat up and was again able to process visual information. My black light had fallen off of the ceiling. (because the pull had bent the ceiling perhaps?) it looked as if she was wrestling with it. I stoood up, ripped the tape that was holding the cord to the wall and put the light on the floor. Everything was making sense again. Except why the light fell. When the light fell, it was if I existed in 3d. Everything in front of me was rounded (like it was projected onto half a cylendar) and the pull was trying to rotate the cylendar. The strange thing was, that I could actually feel the whole shape that I was. Another friend, and my brother tried it. My brother just laughed uncontrollably and asked me if I was on the other side of the room. (I was for part of his experience, but I moved to the other side of the room) he couldnt remember what was so funny.

My girlfriend also tried again. This time with the lights off and a candle lit. She said she laid down and closed her eyes. The walls of my room are at an angle and she said she moved down, at that angle. Everything was black, then she looked over and saw a house, she felt a feelings she described as the one you get when your surrounded with family. And she knew there was people with her. Then she came back. I then went again. It was sooo strange. I let my second hit out, and took a third, then I laid back. The candle made an odd white shape on the wall. I closed my eyes, but I could still see. I shut them as hard as I could, I could feel the pressure of my eyes being closed, only the light on the wall was that pressure. Then it was moving away, I could still feel the pressure, but I could feel it getting farther away. It was as if I was still in my body, but I could also recieve feeling from that other source (the light) it moved back and then up and to the right. Everything was black but that weird shape feeling thing. Then there were more, I could feel all of them at the same time. It was a repeating patteren of that shape spreading out over the blackness. I opened my eyes and I could see two seperate parts of the room (at opposite angles from each other) at the same time.

Salvia...well...to sum it up in one word...WEIRD...thats W E I R D in capital letters. The uncomfortable feeling that I get as it wears off, it kinda almost feels like its not the salvia that feels weird, its this place.
