  smoked Salvia divinorum (extract)


I had smoked salvia prior to this experience and hated it. Up until this time I could not put my finger on what I hated so much about it. So I did it again, and this time retained enough to realize what it was that sucked.

I torched the bowl of 45x extract sitting in an enclosure of trees. Just outside the tree enclosure was a steep cliff like grass hill. Just behind us was an open grass field. I blew out and immediately sat down and left my body. I was no longer myself, a human, I was an experience. A painful, confusing experience. Every time I would almost make sense of the shit I was seeing it would be ripped away by the same force that was pushing me through the trip. In a word, it was pure terror.
In a word, it was pure terror.

I woke up from what I thought was sitting leaning on this tree and drooling and tripping. Still scared and shaken, a little psychotic. Once I finally came to I noticed that I was drenched in water, like I had jumped into a pool, and covered in mud. My friends informed me that I had not sat under that tree. I had taken the hit, handed the bubbler off to my friend, and babbled for a minute or so. Suddenly I jumped up and dove off the cliff hill. My friend dove after me to save my life, he landed on me and we skidded down the mud cliff until we finally stopped. I then frantically struggled to get away, hitting and squirming, trying to break free. I almost died because I had no control of my body, I wasn't even there when this happened. It's a horrible feeling, I don't like to think about it. Salvia should not be legal.
