3 hits smoked Salvia divinorum (extract - 10x)

It’s hard to put into words just how excited I was to try Salvia in the weeks prior to my experience. The best way is to relate it to the weeks prior to Christmas as a child. I was not only curious, but almost obsessed with what Salvia could mean for me, and waited anxiously as each day went by. My wait wasn’t over after I received my two grams of Salvia 10x extract as I had to wait a few days until I could find time to smoke the Salvia with a sitter.
I had to wait a few days until I could find time to smoke the Salvia with a sitter.


My experience with any substances is extremely minimal, having nothing beyond a half dozen hits of marijuana, so the experience was entirely new to me. I went to the house of my sitter, “Jim”, who was contemplating whether or not he would try some too. We discussed it a little bit and it was decided that I would go first so I could tell him what it was like.

We chose his sunroom as the location for the experience, a room with large windows on three sides of the room. I sat on the couch facing one of these windowed walls and began preparing. He went out of the room for a few minutes which gave me time to relax my body and begin thinking of what I wanted to get out of this experience. He soon returned from whatever he was doing, it was time. Using the mini torch I received in the mail along with the 10x, I took my first hit.

Nothing really happened at first besides the left side of my body feeling heavy. My thought process was still normal, and I was having some fun telling Jim how I felt. The smell of the smoke was unpleasant to him so he opened up one of the windows, letting in the January breeze into the room. I felt cold but didn’t think anything of it and I took my second hit.

Almost immediately I felt an odd connection to the opened window on my left. It wasn’t a physical connection in that I wasn’t actually stuck to it or anything, but I did feel sort of bond to the window. And for some reason, only the left side of my body was “connected”, my right side remained in a “normal” state. I remember Jim saying something about the smoke, and he asked if I wanted to take another hit. I said yes.

This ended up being my final hit of Salvia during this experience, and perhaps the last I will ever have. My connection to the window seemed to grow, and it almost felt like I was being pulled towards it. The gentle breeze that went through the room felt suddenly colder, and it felt like this cold air was being pulled towards the window too. It’s hard to explain my thought process afterwards, but I no longer saw Jim as Jim. I knew that I should have known who he was, and I could even place a name to him, but I had no memory of him at all. For whatever reason I saw him as a “worker” in the “bigger picture”. The smoke must have gotten bad enough that he had gotten a piece of cardboard and tried to blow the smoke out of my window. Only I didn’t realize until afterwards he was blowing out the smoke, I thought he was waving the cardboard up and down to blow ME out of the room! What a terrifying feeling that was, being in a completely helpless state thinking this worker Jim was going to make me fly out the window. Luckily for me he stopped and asked if I wanted to take another hit. I somehow managed a no and just sat there. Slowly I returned to a more normal state to contemplate my experience.

As soon as I was able to speak to my mind again, I told it I was never going to put it through the Salvia experience again. Being unable to even tell my friend from a menial laborer is terrifying in itself, but thinking I might fly out this window was even scarier. I think one more hit, whether Jim would have used the cardboard or not, would have sent me out the window.

Despite what I told Jim, he wanted to give it a try. From what Jim has told me, his experience wasn’t like mine. He said he just felt unpleasant while it lasted and feeling like his limbs were heavy and that he needed to lie down. The experience for Jim lasted about three minutes, and about ten minutes for me.

This isn’t fun by any stretch of the imagination. Afterwards I do admit that I felt better, but maybe that was just because the aftermath wasn’t as crazy as actually being in the middle of a experience. My goal was to have a Salvia trip, but when it came time to it and felt like one more hit would take me there, I wussed out.
