DOSE:
1 bowl smoked Salvia divinorum (extract - 5x)

BODY WEIGHT: 210 lb


I've heard a lot of things about salvia. Some good and some bad but mostly bad. So I decided to look it up for myself and try it out. I heard a lot of things about it being a very visual and spiritual journey. I was excited before I even bought it. I picked up a gram of the 5x extract (Standardized). Starting off small was the best way to go I figured. I was joined with my friend B who I asked to sit and watch me. I packed about 1/5 a gram into a bowl and lit it up. The hardest smoke to inhale but I got the hang of it. I pulled three times then got up to go to the bathroom to see if my eyes looked red or anything. When I looked up into the light it kicked.

It took about five minutes until I seen my first encounter on my long but enjoyable quest. It was fairies floating around. I yelled to my friend and explained to him what was going on. He turned the light off and I walked into my kitchen not before falling into the wall. A weird presence had overtaken me. I would close my eyes and be in a new world. A place that I wanted to be in. I was in a field with the sun, wind, birds, and fresh air. I could feel the warm sun on my face and feel the wind as it gently brushed against my body. Unbelievable I thought. I tried to walk and I stopped and looked back only to see my legs were a mile behind me. My friend B was amazed at what was going on. He didn’t know what to believe. I grabbed his shirt and held it tight explaining to him that I was in another place. I fell to the floor with a thud and laid there motionless.

After about two minutes of lying on the floor I heard a weird but familiar voice telling me to get up, (It wasn’t B) I tried to talk back to it but the words wouldn’t come out. Just murmuring. I got up and walked into my bedroom and lay down on my bed. So comfortable I became. I fell asleep only to wake up in the BEST mood I have ever been in. I felt like a new person so alive, so full of energy.

Two days later I decided to invite my friends R and J over along with B. This time we were all in for something no one could have anticipated. We packed a bowl fours times with 1/5 in each, enough for three hits. After about five minutes I was the first to start feeling it. We were all sitting around my kitchen table with our eyes closed and one light on. I opened my eyes to witness Native Americans sitting with me smoking out of a peace pipe. They too were joining me on my quest. I loved every part of it. I felt so at peace with everything. The rest of my friends stories remain untold but were extremely incredible. I feel that salvia is a great herb that brings out my true self. My subconscious comes out to play with me for a while and I'm in another world of my own.
