I was browsing a local head shop in downtown Raleigh, NC one day and saw a selection of salvia extracts. I had heard about salvia before, but didn't know a lot about it. I spoke with the proprietor about it and he recommended the 20x extract for my first time. I bought the packet and went to my friend J's house to hang out and smoke some pot.
It was like a week later when I got around to trying the salvia. I was at J's house and we were trying to find some pot with zero luck. I remembered that I had the salvia extract and decided to try it. (Don't ask me why I carried the extract around with me for a week. I have no clue.) We loaded the bong with salvia.
I went first, filling the foot-long chamber with thick white smoke. I cleared the bong and held it out to J. Just as she grasped the bong, my vision began to waver. I blew out the massive hit and as I did so, the wavering became violent. We happened to be watching Adult Swim, and at the time, Aqua Teen Hunger Force was on. I have no idea what episode it was, because as soon as my vision cleared, every character onscreen immediately stopped what they were doing and turned towards me

. This was fairly unsettling. I then felt what seemed to be a giant zipper pressing into my entire left side, from head to toe, forcing me in towards the tv screen. At this point every character was trying to convince me it was better there in animated New Jersey, and that I should stop fighting it and join them. I kept fighting against the zipper closing in on me, but it seemed it was a losing battle. I began to feel very hot and broke out in a sweat.
I then noticed that the room appeared normal again, the tv playing the regularly scheduled programming instead of my own personal recruitment show. The zipper had also vanished. I was still very hot and sweaty so I pulled off my leather jacket. The floor began looking very appealing right then, so I slid off the couch onto the floor and kind of zoned out for a couple minutes.
Then I was rather chilly, so I put my leather back on and sat back on the couch. Once I had came back to reality completely, J told me that I had apparently tried to lay on her tv and almost knocked it off the stand while trying.
In general I would say that salvia scares me, and would not personally recommend it to anyone I like. On a side note, J took a bong rip right after me with zero effect other than the taste of fish food...
