Tripping Without Sitter Sucks
Salvia divinorum

Citation:   Yni. "Tripping Without Sitter Sucks: An Experience with Salvia divinorum (exp61634)". Apr 9, 2018.

100 mg smoked Salvia divinorum (extract - 10x)


I got 2 grams of 10X Salvia extract from online store. I tried it 3 times with a sitter. First time I was at the 3rd level (Light visionary state, ~0.07g) and next 2 times at the 2nd level (Altered perception, ~0.05g). That was my good experiences.

One day my colleague went home at 4:30pm and left me at our office alone. I was done programing and testing sooner than I expected and I ended up with 20 minutes of free time before leaving the office. I decide to try Salvia from a 'bongo' (in Slovak) or BV (I think this is the proper English term).

How I made the bongo

I picked 0.5 liter plastic bottle, burned a small hole near the bottom of it, pushed a piece of aluminium foil in the bottle neck and did a hole in the foil. I placed aprox. 0.1g of 10X Salvia extract, fired it up and sucked the smoke from the little hole at the bottom of the bongo. ... 3 large hits... each holded for ~40 second!

The experience

T + 0:00

Everything was relatively OK, but in one moment I forgot where I am, who I am, what is going on and why the world is so fucking spinning around me!

I heard some voices (probably some women screaming in the drug-test development office near my office... Yes, I tripped only 4 meters from a drug-testing company).

So the gravity was changing in a rapid manner, I was highly disorientated. The voice I heard before changed into a very realistic hallucination - I heard many nurses talking at once, like if I were somewhere at a rush hospital. I sit in my chair (may the only thing, which saved my a lot of pain) and I couldn't stand up. I placed my hands on the table and tried to stabilize the movements, which I felt.

I looked around me, but I was not able to figure out where I am. I saw things, which I never seen before, but they appeared to me like if I used them every day and knew their function. I'm not able to describe how they looked like... I forgot most of my trip. I wanted only one thing... to stop the strange things that happened to me.

T + 0:10

After a 10 minutes I started to come down. I remembered that I'm on Salvia and I got a good feeling of safety. I was still hallucinating, but from now only few tens of seconds. I stand up and did something - I don't know what. After that I had only a good feeling, but I was hungry. I went to a meeting and I felt good.

T + 0:30

I met with a friend - he noticed nothing, but I was still very incompetent to do trivial tasks the first time, like spin the key in the right direction, or call the elevator.


Never trip... NEVER TRIP!!!! Without a sitter! NEVER and NEVER and NEVER and NEVER! This time I had a bad trip in the safety of my huge office chair, but next time I can do my self a big harm.
