A New Identity
Salvia divinorum (5x extract)

Citation:   Auz. "A New Identity: An Experience with Salvia divinorum (5x extract) (exp12394)". Feb 17, 2023.

3 bowls smoked Salvia divinorum (extract - 5x)
Recently I bought a gram of Salvia Divinorum, 5x extract. Being new to these wondrous areas, I was very excited, and anxious. The first time I tried was a failure. Then I read 'The Secrets of Smoked Salvia' by Michael Smith (available online). Not knowing, I wasted half a gram to no effect.

So two days later I bought a new lighter, and decided to make the day productive by building my own water-pipe. I waited till night, as I had read that a dark room is essential, although that may not be completely true, as my experience took place with the light on, which I needed to use my pipe. I was feeling calm, but excited, and smoked a bowl. The water pipe was just so much better, the smoke was smooth, and easy to hold. I loaded up a second bowl, smoked it and then, whoa!

It's very hard to describe what happened, as it wasn't primarily visual, but more in the mind's eye, I think akin to the dream plane. But suddenly I was in a very fun, benevolent mad dash of an adventure, part of some weird game show, trying to find reality, equipped with a new identity as well.
But suddenly I was in a very fun, benevolent mad dash of an adventure, part of some weird game show, trying to find reality, equipped with a new identity as well.
Let me underline that it was not fearful, or frantic at all, but good fun. I eventually saw my desk, and my water pipe, and laughed very deeply, 'ahhh this is reality!' which was very amusing. I went down stairs, but it still looked like I was in Salvia space, so I went back to my room again.

I smoked another bowl, and the burning material looked like faces, and suddenly my water pipe, a blue glass, and my desk were actually this street. The Salvia was kind of growing up from the desk (which I could feel), but it was kind of like a game, like push and pull, as a green building (but it wasn't really visual). Suddenly I came to again. There I was in my room again! Had I ever left? Was I really there now? I didn't know, and it was just funny! After awhile I finished the extract I had, with nothing more really happening, but I was content.

All in all it took place for about 20 minutes, with another 20 to just return to waking state consciousness. I did not meet Salvia in person, nor did I experience a high Salvia state (which I hope to, soon), but all in all it was great fun, I felt welcome, and I received the answer to my request: that it wouldn't be a bad experience. I feel that growing the plant, and getting an affinity with it that way, would be the best way to go. Good Luck!
