700 ml oral Alcohol - Beer/Wine  
    smoked Kratom  
  3 - 4 hits smoked Salvia divinorum (dried)


I had smoked dried leaves in three times, previously (two in cigarettes, one with a very crappy, plastic bong)... all of them had a very mild effect, especially the last one, because it have a very small chillum, and it can't contain the smoke very well, so I could not inhale it nearly at all. Waste of money. However, this experience was made with a good quality glass bong, and even the leaves were more fresh then in the previous experiences.

I was sat with my friend in a park on a bench. We already drink some wine and beer, and take some Kratom. We toked the kratom a few minutes ago before the Salvia, so It probably had not effect on the trip. So, I had torched the bong, and I made three or four big hits. The smoke was pretty nasty, but not much worse than tobacco. The first thing I felt was an upcoming sensation of "something overwhelming is coming", and yes, it came. The ground beneath me started to look very black and brown, warping. I felt somekind of a wind, or push from everywhere. I stareted to smile, and keep saying to myself, that "it's really... come to me". I heard my voice like with a delay effect. I have seen something like when you place mirrors in front of each other, but with some darker colours with high contrast, but somewhat blurry. I felt myself so disconnected from the world, that I had to keep asking my friend that 'Are you still here? I am still here?', because I thought that I got out of this world, completely, and now I am floating upon my dying body. This was the only negative feeling that I had experienced in this trip: the question, that I am still tripping, or what is happening to me, now? I heard some very eerie and ethereal music when I looked into that long, blurry kaleidoscope. It sounded like a synthesized sitar, with some kinf of echo, or modulation. Very strange, and very beautiful. The trip lasted about 15 minutes, but it felt like 5-6 minutes - my friend said, that I looked everywhere in the trip, I mean, what is in front of me, what is behind, etc:. and my words were very gentle and calm, not panicked at all.

The second round was made by my friend. He had a nearly totally different results than mine was. He took like three or four hits, pretty much the same as mine. He looked forward, and said 'What is this...? What.. is.. this feeling?' and started to laugh uncontrollably. Not histerical at all, just being very happy and out of this worlds problems. His trip ended in like 10 minutes. I asked about what he seen, and he just mentioned the warping, melting ground, trees, textures, etc:. but not as intense and spacey as mine. So, the main effect on him was the laughter. The Salvia also totally dominated the previously consumed alcohol, I mean, we felt a little bit tipsy when the effect gone, but during the trip, the Salvia dominated all of our feelings and being.

The substanced weared off within a 20-30 minutes. That part was similar with a Cannabis high, but more gentle and intelligent in some ways. Personally, I will definitely try this dosage in the future, as it was intense enough, to make remarkable memories and visions, but still not that wild, to make it scarry or creepy. I just asked myself: if this was 1 gram of some good, dried leaves, than what can an extract do? I think I will try that later. The plain leaves did the trick to me, and it was a strange, but great experience.
