So Heavy, So Short
Salvia divinorum

3 g smoked Salvia divinorum (leaves)


I had just purchased 1/2oz of Salvia from an online store, (which I had to wait quite a while for) after having researched it for many days. I picked up my package, and decided that I should wait until I had the whole house to myself. Later that night, I was lucky enough to have everyone leave, except my girlfriend. She was sleeping on the couch, so I thought I would smoke the salvia in the bathroom to minimize the smell.

I used a small pipe that I bought at the local head-shop. The pipe has a small bowl, so I laid out 5 piles of Salvia, so I could reload my bowl quicker. I smoked the first bowl in 2 deep breaths and didn't feel anything, so, I went through the next 3 piles very quickly. I still didn't get anything, so I loaded the 5th pile up, lit it, and took one deep toke.

Immediately, the effects hit me. It was like nothing I have ever felt! I felt as though every cell in my body had more than doubled in weight, and I had lost all balance. I put my pipe down, and staggared into my bedroom and fell on my bed. The lights were out, so the room was completely dark. I laid back and closed my eyes. My body felt as though I was falling very fast and twisting. I had intense visuals of colour, and light that I knew wasn't there. I would compare the effects to the onset of Mush. The trip continued for about 15 minutes, and just as fast as it hit, it was over. WOW!

I have since used salvia quite a bit, and it gets better and better. I have yet to have a 'bad trip'. Salvia is great, but not something to do everyday....
