DOSE:
2 hits smoked Salvia divinorum (extract)

BODY WEIGHT: 175 lb


This experience was my first with salvia. A friend and I went to the local tobacco shop and bought a gram of 21x salvia divinorum. We got back home and decided to smoke a little of it out of his pipe. I hit approx. 1/10 of a gram and began to laugh uncontrolably. My body felt as if it was opening in two halves.
My body felt as if it was opening in two halves.


Once it wore off another friend brought out his big glass steamroller to hit the salvia out of next. Again it was approx 1/10 of a gram. I filled the steamroller up until the smoke was yellow, then I inhaled the smoke.

Imediately after inhaling the salvia I felt a tremendous force pushing on my back and shoulders, it was pushing me down. As this happened I was staring at a plastic mat on the floor (the kind with little spikes on the bottom to help it not move on carpet.) I began to see myself and the whole room as if I were floating above it all. Then as I was looking on the plastic spikes were gigantic, as big as a house it seemed and it was coming from the sky and pinning all of us to the ground. It was here where I thought I would go insane if it successfully pinned me to the ground. (as this was happening the colbert report was on and the only words I heard him saying over and over was 'its all over.')

Finally I jumped back to my feet, and looked over at the door and contemplated running out of the house... About a minute later I remembered I had hit salvia. It was the most intense experience I've had with a psychedelic by far, and I've done a lot of experimenting with psychedelics...
