  smoked Salvia divinorum (extract - 5x)


I decided to try salvia for the first time yesterday after having read quite a bit of information on the web. I went into a local shop and the girl behind the counter recomended I start out with 5X. So I get home with this stuff and I go up to my room and pack a good pinch into a bowl. I kept the flame on it as I drew it all into my lungs, held it for as long as I possibly could, closed my eyes and layed back on the bed.

This was yesterday afternoon and I am still trying to figure out what took place. The best way I can describe it is I felt like a fish out of water. I felt like I had been yanked from my natural enviroment and wanted to get back to where I belonged. I felt like I was under examination by someone or something of a much higher power. I tried to lift my head up off of the pillow but could not as if I was pinned down. As far as visions what I was seeing was my scenes from my life flashing very rapidly. This whole experience lasted about 4-5 min in reality time. yet felt much longer in whatever realm I had tapped into.

I kind of feel like I was someplace I was not meant to be. Salvia needs to be respected. It is not something to be used as a party drug! I might try it again sometime but will really need to think about it for a while.
