Before I begin my experience, I must make it very clear that I have smoked salvia many times, at much higher concentration (60x extract), and had a very unpleasant experience the first time around, so my view on salvia has always been rather paranoid. I hate feeling like I’m never coming back.

To start the story, jerry and I decided to try a 'purple sticky' extract because a friend told us he had had a better experience that way. Jerry was skeptical because the highest extract they had for the 'purple sticky' salvia was 15x, which is dramatically lower than the 60x we had become accustom to. This purchase was made the day prior to our mushroom trip. We had planed on smoking it that night, but things came up, we got drunk and decided against.

The next night, jerry and I picked up a ˝ oz of mushrooms and split it four ways with our girlfriends. We each ate about 1/16 oz to start and gradually ate more as the night progressed. The mushrooms themselves weren’t much for the eye, cost way too much, and didn’t seem like anything special, but they were actually pretty good. The mood of the evening was first set by the movie “ the doors” playing behind the entertainment center’s doors (thus heard but not seen), after that, tools new cd “10,000 days” was the ambiance for their apartment. By this time jerry had remembered the salvia purchased the night before. He brought it out, set it on the table, and said “I dare you.” Far be it for me to refuse a dare or a drug, but my only condition was that if I did it first, everyone else (excluding jerry’s girlfriend jen) would have to follow. We all agreed and it was my turn.

The one thing I have always remembered about salvia is to SIT DOWN! There’s a reason why they say it so do it. No use in getting hurt in the process of having a good time. So the first thing I did was make a comfortable spot on the floor, in a place where I could see every one. This is important to me, I use peoples faces as my base for reality once the effects set in. I started packing myself a nice little hit (approx 1/10g) in jerry’s tiny acrylic bong. I took a few slow, deep breaths, and was prepared. Once I had taken my hit, I immediately set down everything, crossed my legs, and relaxed. Jerry started to speak, he said, “he’s going… and he’s gone,” and right as he said gone, I started to feel the creeping sensation of the onset. I always forget just how unpleasant this feeling is. The onset took about a 45 seconds, which is a little bit slower than usual for me, the usual being about 20 seconds. I attribute this to the weaker extract. After about a minute and a half, I felt the wind or tilt, wherein the world feels like is tilting to the left. Then, in a blink, I lost sight of what I was looking at. I could see every ones faces, but everything else was a blur of swirling color patterns. Everything became 2-dimensional. This is when I started to notice the salvia clashing with the mushrooms. It would wave back and forth from 2-d to 3-d and I came a bit confused. I couldn’t tell which was more the dominant at this point. Everything was flat but there faces, and the shadows on their faces was playing the normal mushroom visuals while the salvia was causing insane colored visuals on the rest of the room. The best part was that I had not really worried about never coming back to reality (which is a first for me).

I’m not exactly sure how long the peak lasted for, it was hard to tell when every thing was over due to my already altered perception. Once I came down completely, or at least back to mushroom land, I realized that the salvia had actually increased my mushroom trip a lot. It had become much stronger than before, body buzz more intense, visuals had become much more apparent, meaning I didn’t have to focus on things to make them wiggle and breathe, they just did. The only thing it didn’t seem to affect was my rational thinking, which is good, all the positive effects of an 1/8th while only ingesting 1/16th. All in all I would have to say salvia and mushrooms (in proper doses) make a knock out combo.
