DOSE:
.5 g smoked Salvia divinorum (extract - 5x)

BODY WEIGHT: 220 lb


My friend read an article on salvia in our local paper. Here, you can buy it at corner stores, so we decided to try it out. The cashier recommended 5X since it was our first time. He also said in a middle-eastern accent 'this salvia is more potent than pot, you may blackout!'. Both were true.

I drove to a large, empty parking lot near my house. There I packed a solid, 0.5g bowl, right to the brim. I hit that pipe until I almost puked from the taste. Right away I felt hot so I turned up the AC. I blasted some Pink Floyd and looked over at my buddy and started laughing uncontrolably. Everything felt shifty and slow, as if reality was broadcasted through a strobe light.

My friend tried to mess with me and said don't get tangled in the seatbelt (my belt was off). I reached up for the belt and that's when it hit me. All of a sudden it FELT like my car blasted into space. I was sucked into my seat. Wham! I passed out, sort of.. I had to piece together the following:

I felt as if I had shrunk to the size of my hand. Massive winds whirled around me. I was disoriented. Music didn't make any sense.. it was very loud and sounded like an echo of large crowd combined with echoing guitars and all. I thought my car was a giant stadium lol. Above me was a large blurry, pink blob. I could hear fast wind blowing and music echoing all around me as I lay there. This went on for what felt like 10 minutes.

Soon enough the sounds started to quiet. I slid from the dream into reality like a DJ fades into a new track. It felt like I went from wasted drunk to sober in 5 seconds. That was weird!

I opened my eyes and saw my bicep/forearm was on my cheek and I was laying in my chair. The trip pulled my arm into my face LOL. That was the blob. I was sweating and felt sick to my stomach. I sat outside the car for about 20 mins. The smell of the salvia would make me gag.

To sum it up, Salvia Inhances all my senses and puts me into a dream. I wasn't fully sedated since I now recognize aspects of reality that I perceived while tripping(AC=winds, blob=arm, echos=music stadium=car interior). The most intense sensations are the increase in gravity which literally pulled me to the ground. Coming out of the buzz is kinda freaky since it happens so quick.
