1 hit smoked Salvia divinorum (extract - 10x)
Having had numerous trips on LSD and even ALD52 years ago, I mentioned to a friend I regretted never having tried DMT. He suggested Salvia as an alternative. I arranged for a him, a trusted friend to be my sitter. I do not know the exact dose but it was 10X commercially bought. I was not expecting what came next.

I loaded the bowl in a new pipe. I was warned to put it down asap after I inhaled. Good advice. I took a very large long hit and held in while putting the glass pipe down. I laid or rather fell back into my bed. I was never frightened, although I am not the type to be frightened by even what some would call bad trips. This was not a bad trip.

Everything seemed to be folding around me. The room, the walls. Suddenly I was not in my room nor my body. I was being pulled through a wall or... membrane of sorts. Half in and half out I could see the inside. I made it all the way in except for my hand which was clutching a coffee cup. I pulled it in and the cup hit the floor of a yellow tube I was now in. It bounced down the winding tube making a noise of a cup bouncing yet never breaking. (I drink far too much coffee, so this was both ironic and symbolic.) I wanted to explore this tunnel. Not only was it yellow but both soft to the touch but hard to the cup from the sound it made as it hit the bottom.

It was soothing to be in the tube. I had the distinct feeling that this was just one of many. As soon as I was fully inside and watched my coffee cup bounce away, I felt myself returning to me room and I wanted to stay. My butt hit the remote on the TV and Nancy Grace came on! A woman I detest. Her face became three dimensional and came out of the TV and asked me ' One more time Tim?' I did not answer knew what she meant. The room folded in on me again from all sides and again I began to pass through the membrane into the same tube. But the second time, I simply made it half way before I was suddenly back in my bed, slightly high, speechless as I sat and contemplated my experience for the next 12 hours. My sitter said I did rise and the TV did come on due to me lying on the remote, but Nancy Grace was not it, nor was the sound on. It was just a commercial for perfume or something. He turned it off. He said I looked peaceful but when I rose I waved my hands in front of my eyes when the TV came on, thus his reason for turning it off. I forget he was there even for the hour after I came out of it. In was deeply engrossed in my experience, replaying it in my mind. Words really cannot explain these experiences without detracting from them.

I will say even with the short life of the high. Be responsible. Have a sitter. Be comfortable. If there is a fear being out of one's body, I would not do it. It is nothing like LSD, nothing like mushrooms or even ALD52 which was everything I ever wanted LSD to be.

There is something very special about Salvia, in that I remember everything, still to this day, where most other trips, everything I may have learned or wanted to remember was lost the next day. On LSD I might have some revelation that is later lost. Everything I experienced on Salvia was symbolic, there was no pondering. Just experiencing.

Although I would love to explore this drug more, I will stick to this one fond memory and experience.
