3 hits smoked Salvia divinorum (dried)


I ordered some Salvia D. from a internet company on a Friday, and received it on the following Monday. I got the package, and with excitement opened it. It looked like a bunch of dried leaves that had fallen off a tree. I didn't care, as I had heard too many great trip reports to tun back now. I waited till that night to try it cause of all the noise that was going to be bothersome during the day.

At 10:30 PM I went into my room and turned off my lights, disconnected the phone, and got out my water pipe. I pulled out my Salvia D. with excitement. I opened it up and packed a bowl of it into my pipe. I then followed the 'Salvia Rules To Smoking' that I had heard so much about. Get the full dosage of Salvinorin-A in your system in 2-3 minutes, use a water pipe, be in a quiet room...etc. I took my pipe and lit it. I held all my hits for about 25-30 seconds. While holding the second hit, I noticed a weird feeling in my body, the feeling that something was happening. I then took my third hit and once again held it for 25-30 seconds. When I exhaled the third hit, waves of euphoric feelings flooded my body. WOW! I thought 'This is amazing for a legal herb!' I then closed my eyes and hoped for visuals of some sort. No more than 20 seconds later I felt as if I were in the woods somewhere. I felt lost but not frightened. I saw a UFO looking craft in the middle of the forest.

All of a sudden a bunch of 'alien looking' beings started walking towards me. The amazing thing was that I was not scared! I saw hundreds of them gathering around me. I then saw what seemed to be the leader coming towards me. I felt safe and loved. I had never felt this way before. Just as the 'leader' made his way to me, I snapped back into realty. I sat there and thought for a good 10-15 minutes what would've happened if I would've stayed 'there' longer? The whole experience with the beings lasted for about 4-6 minutes, and the thinking back and recollecting what happened lasted for about 10-15 minutes. The overall time was about 20-25 minutes. I learned a lot from this experience. Maybe these strange beings I saw have a connection somehow to the Salvia plant? We may never know. . .

But I do know that Salvia D. is a plant meant for opening up the mind to things we do not see in realty. It should not be used as a recreational drug. This is a teacher plant. If we use it with god intentions it will surely shed light on many things unseen by the human eyes, ears, and mind. . .
