I will make this quick and get to the point. I was in great mindset and the setting was the beautiful campus here at the University of California Santa Cruz. I had ingested a large cup of San pedro brew, with only minimal effects. I did not include any lemon juice while boiling down the mixture and I believe this may have been the problem.

That being said I was enjoying mild euphoria and colors seemed to be enhanced as I watchted the tall grass sway in a poetic manor with the wind. Talking with my friends and smoking a good amount of the Kind seemed to help these feelings, but I definetley wasn,t tripping on mescaline as I had understood the drug to be.

I have tried mushrooms, acid, coke, MDMA among other herbal drugs and this was not intense at all compared to those trips. Next my friend Suggested we smoke some Salvia. Having some really potent extract with me, I decided to load up the biggest bowl and hit it really hard, twice. What followed was real scary and interesting at the same time. My previous Salvia experiences had lasted 10 minutes at the most, but this lasted well over an hour of the most intense tripping I have ever experienced.

Every word spoken to me from my friends felt as though my own mind was producing it. As if my friends were merely thoughts in my head. On top of this the whole scene around us appeared to me as cartoonish and unreal. I had no sense of the planes of geometry, a far off person down the hill from us seemed to be standing on the same one dimesnional plane as us. This was scary no doubt and after trying to wait it out for about half an hour, we walked back to my dorm room. As I was walking I lost any idea of who I was or what was going on. However I gained this back quickly as I returned to my memory and consciousness. This was my only experience of complete ego loss as I understand it. I wish I could remember what I had thought or experienced during this short time. For about another hour I just rode out the Salvia, tryuing my best to enjoy it. In conclusion, I feel that salvia is greatly potentiated by other psychedelics, most likely the small amount of mescaline in my system at this time.
