Painful Laughter

  smoked Salvia divinorum (extract - 5x)


I bought some salvia in a local headshop after hearing it was pretty good. I've tried mushrooms and lsd previously and since it was legal I wasn't expecting much from it, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Me and my two friends sat down in my attic. It is big, roomy, open and comfortable, its also used as a meditation room so there were about 20 candles lit and some dim lights, as I know its best used in a comfortable quiet location. I got my bong and loaded it. In anticipation I flicked my lighter then inhaled deeply, it has a slight metallic taste and didn't seem pleasant to me, but I'm sure it could vary. I didn't feel much so I passed the bong to my friend and waited. Everything felt a little fuzzy, kind of like the first time I ever tried cigarettes.

My friends took their hits and started saying they felt odd but nothing major. The bong came back to me and I took a huge hit this time, determined to feel something. I passed the bong to my friend once again and when I did this a strange, unexplainable feeling came over me, the only way I can describe it would be the way silence would feel if it were a feeling
the only way I can describe it would be the way silence would feel if it were a feeling
, this is probably unimaginable unless you have experienced it. Then my friend tried to communicate with me but all I could respond with was laughter, I tried to speak but it just got harder the more I tried, this lasted a good minute or so and by the end my stomach was in pain and I was crying I was laughing so much. My friend experienced a 'tunnel vision' effect and this lasted around 5 minutes.

My experience was very enjoyable.
