Second experience with salvia. Been smoking pot for about 6 years now. I am 18 years old living in houston texas; was having a wake for a friend who recently died, and wanted to revisit the salvia experience in his memory. I was with a few people in my room, away from the party in my house downstairs. I had bought this 70$ 30X extract from a head shop, just for the party. I loaded a full bowl into my mini bong, and took a full blown bowl casher. I remember someone asking, 'how long do you hold it in for?' 'Forever' I replied, leaking a bit of smoke.
For a while I thought it wasn't going to work, but I just held it. Suddenly, I was pulled from behind and thought I was falling backwards. The cieling looked to be spinning as I fell back, and the spinning continued. Suddenly reality changed from being a human being on planet earth to nothing more than a spinning line, around an axis unknown. I could see other lines across from me spinning with me, and I just thought 'so this is what reality really is, not that other life' I figured it'd be easier going thru the line life so I just sat there and let it be, just spun and spun and spun, but then I found I couldnt stop spinning no matter what, and the circles were getting more complex and looping through me. I started trying to escape the spin, and ran down the stairs out of my house until I heard a friend outside call my name, and ask what the fuck I was doing. I told her she was spinning, and that I was spinning too. That was when I remembered my actual life and could recall taking a hit of the salvia. I told her I was having a major trip and that it'd all be over soon. I couldn't see the spinning anymore but my whole body was still under the effects of motion. I returned to my house and to my room, and suddenly sound started to increase the spinning effects. I tried to tell everyone to stop making sound, but it was no use. After a while the spinning subsided and I felt okay for once. The aftereffects were like being suspended, and comfortable. I felt as if gravity wasn't so harsh anymore. Got too stoned to figure out how long the affects lasted, but everyone else had a great time as well.
