I have tried numerous drugs in my days and felt that often I pay far too much for the experience that I get. Salvia was just another case of the great hype in which there should have been none at all. I ordered to samples of salvia form two different web sites. The first was a gram of 10x extract, and the second was a gram of 15x extract. I figured with getting two samples of different strength I would be able to test the results.
I pulled out my trusty bull and smoke half a gram of the 10x extract and waited 10 minutes. Nothing happened so I immediately packed the bull again with the rest of 10x extract to see if I didn't smoke enough. I smoke it holding each breath in and slowly releasing it over and over again. I made sure it was cherried, so it wasnít burning it all up. At one point it started to taste like burnt rubber almost. Just a real weird taste that made me want to puke. After finishing the bull I felt no results in the next couple minutes. Now I paid over fifty bucks for the two samples so I was pretty pissed I wanted to at least catch a buzz.
I grabbed the 15x extract smoked the whole gram and waited. Now I smoked approximately 2 grams of the extracts and nothing happened. One was nice enough to throw in some leaves for me to try for free, after all they had already robbed me of a few bucks for some bogus claim that this would have some effects on me as if it was a mind or body trip. I smoked the leaves they gave me and still no results. I don't know if these companies just ripped me off or if the whole thing is just a fake, I donít know. However, one thing I know for sure is that salvia didn't work and it was extremely expensive. All this hype I heard of taken one or two hits and I would feel great just didn't happen.
For those of you that say it worked, thatís cool. But I am determined to remain with the fact that if it is legal, it is that way for a reason and that is because I could not get a real buzz off of it.
