Well my friends are gonna probably view this and say that I am over exagerating or that they are just lost so let me begin. Anyways a few months ago a friend and I had ordered some salvia divinorium leaves from the internet. We had gotten a torch lighter and a tobacco filtration device to smoke the leaves in. When the leaves got there we were so excited we immedieatly set stuff up and went into my buddies basement. We smoked a huge bowl of leaves each and we each had absolutely nothing happen to us except a disgusting taste of crap in our mouths. We decided that this was crap but had heard about something called salvia extract.
A few weeks ago my friend messaged me saying that he had ordered the 10x extract and asked if I was ready to go. I said sure why not!?. It took up to 3-days ago until I actually got to do it. The time was 12am and I was in my garage with my 2 other friends who were gonna smoke it and another friend who was going to watch us to see what was gonna happen. When it came down to it most of us were scared to try it but then finally someone got enough courage to smoke a tiny bowl...like really tiny 1/4 of the bowl tiny. Anyways he smoked it and then started just talking all random about anything it was kind of nonsensical jarble in a way and he seemed a little confused about what was going on. Next was my turn. I let my friend set up the bowl and I didnt watch him which was probably my mistake. He packed me a full bowl (I mean FULL bowl) which was packed down and more on top etc. Anyways, I didn't know this at the time and I put my lips to it and just started to smoke, when I realized how much was in there I thought 'What's the worst that could happen' so I ripped it through and held the smoke in for a good portion of time (like it was indicated that I was supposed to do). I exhaled the smoke and thought well then....when is it going to kick in...in...in and that's when it happened. Now this is pretty much all according to friends. From here I immedieatly stood up and had a blank stare in my face like I had no recolection of anything that was going on or had gone on at all. I simply said 'I'm fucked'. In my head I don't know what I was thinking but I knew that I was thinking 'I have to get out of here! I have to get out of here!' and I just kept running for the door. Apparently I had said this out loud and my friends grabbed me and threw me in a chair. I sat down and just tranced off into a horrible kind of fright, I'm not sure exactly what I was afraid of all I know is the fear was the worst fear I think I have ever felt. Worse than death. While the trip was in it's biggest effect I felt as though I was being pushed into the back of my chair ... Kind of like that gravitron ride at fairs and festivals. The extremeness finally wore off after what seemed like an extremely long time and I was then sitting in my chair frightened like no other.
I don't know how long I will wait before I try it again because the fear was really bad but a friend told me that it only happens once. To finish the story, the original friend who had smoked first decided he was going to try a bigger bowl to see what all the fuss is about. He got one comparison to my size of bowl and ripped it through. He sat in the chair for about 20 seconds with a blank stare, then all of a sudden go up and grabbed onto some stereo equipment and tried to pull it off the table, I subdued him from doing so. He then broke free and ran into the middle of the garage and he was still un responsive to anything we were yelling at him. He then like crouched in the middle of the garage then stood up, and went and sat back in the seat he was originally sitting in. Then all of a sudden he was like so when are we going to smoke the salvia?....TOTAL AMNESIA, this was kind of fucked to me in the sense that I had never seen anyone so unresponsive and yet so physically active... He has no recolection of his trance at all. Well I could probably name some more stuff off that happened however I am a little fuzzy on that night myself... I probably will try it again with a slightly lesser amount to simply induce vivid hallucinations rather than a mental melt down
