First off, I started smoking recreationally at age 30 (cigarettes, then quit after a few years...and then experiencing weed around that same time, which I still indulge in on a pretty regular basis). I tried Exctacy one year ago and have indulged more than a few times, maybe about 10 or more times. I liked the effects of the 'E' initially...but soon could do without it as it has some side effects (for me) that I could do without.
A friend called me and confided that she had ordered some herbs over the internet....that they would come in a few days and she wanted me to be her sitter. I was thrilled cuz I really enjoy the observatory part of the effects of psychedelic substances. She told me to read as much as I could on the herb (Salvia D) and I did...she informed me that still it might not prepare me if I decided to try. Nonetheless, I agreed...but by the time I'd expected to sit with her, she'd already done it and explained her experience to me vividly...I was enthused to try.
I got to her house about 7pm and we prepared our minds as best we could...I was anxious...she was a bit nervous in another way I could not understand....I didnt feel fearful just very anxious to 'see'.
She rolled a white boy joint for me...with a very nominal amount (I thought)....and now, as I think of my experience as it relates to my personal tolerance level, I should have consumed more and maybe not wrapped in paper, but using a bong or something...next time I will.
I will just say that I didnt experience the full experience...partly because of the amount I smoked....and partly because of my high tolerance for anything....as I ingested the first hit...I didnt feel anything but light and calm and I'm thinking 'I could have just smoked some weed to get this'....and I felt myself expecting visions or something but nothing happened.
Hit number 2...same thing...nothing....maybe I'm not holding it long enough...so hit 3 was more than the first two. I did feel something heavy on me...weighting me down and then pulling me forward. I laughed alot at I dont know what but it felt like cement or something or very strong hands pulling me forward but it didnt scare me it made me laugh hysterically. I was looking forward to whatever it would bring, but quickly that passed and I was back to normal.
Hit 4...I decided to stand and see if it would make a difference....this time, I guess I'd gotten enough in me that the effects were more noticeable. Unstantly, I felt like I was on a ship, like, I didnt SEE the ship, but I FELT like I was on the edge of a ship holding the rails and just looking out into this beautiful abyss...which was just a small room filled with normal room things (two couches, a chair and a lamp and tv). It was so sunny and pleasant on that ship. I noticed two people behind/beside me...no faces...but they seemed masculine. They never spoke and as I tried to get a look at them I couldnt quite turn my head enough to SEE them clearly but I felt they were there.
Suddenly I felt...no fear but an urgency to sit on the couch but the room looked identical to everything else in the room. Sounds crazy....I mean, the left side looked like the right side....I dont know. I tried climbing off the ship and tried to explain to my friend that I was trying to get to the couch but I couldnt remember the word 'couch' for some reason. The more I tried saying it...the more the meaning of it evaporated. I was looking right at it! But I could not make out the name for this thing (the couch)...it was weird but I like instances like that.
I came down after that and it was over. I dont think I went that deep but there's always a next time...
I think when I climbed off the ship is where I must've ended my trip. I wanna go back...
I just ordered my own batch (10x) in the mail and will experience it again this weekend with my partner in a more intimate and familiar setting. I'm hoping my second experience will prove more meaningful and experiential (if that's a word)....my hopes are to have an intimate conversation with Sally D and get some clarification and confirmation on my own experiences in this realm. I'm open....
