1 hit smoked Salvia divinorum (extract)


3 of my friends and I were in my college dorm room, and we were all (but one) trying out salvia for the first time. We had a sampler pack, which contained leaves (1x), 5x, 10x, and 20x substances. I started out small, with the leaves. Note that in all cases, the hits were one gatorade sized waterfall bong, and the bowls were burnt completely, taken in one hit, and held for approx thirty seconds.

The leaves were first, I decided to try them out since I was completely new to the drug. After my hit, I felt. Odd. A little bit disoriented, but not tripping really. Everything was a little bit strange, and it really made me want to play with heavier doses of the stuff.

After approx. 5 minutes, the cycle had gotten back to my turn, and I lit a bowl of the 10x. Nothing happened. The same feelings as before. I felt like my hit didnt burn right, or something (unexplanable) weird had happened. So I took another hit of 10x in immediate succession.

This time, I started geeking out. Uncontrollable laughter. Everything was hilarious! I couldnt stop laughing, and every time that I made my best attempt to stop, thinking the trip was finally over, I burst out again. After probably the 5th time trying to stop (maybe 4 minutes) I was able to control myself, and had just a pleasurable high feeling for a while, followed by mild disorientation.

3rd round, I decided to jump up to the 20x. I was the first of my friends to try this dose, but I was excited. Also I decided to try the 20x because I had heard that salvia was supposed to make you unaware of your surroundings completely, and to this point I had not experienced that at all (with this drug).

I held my hit, and after I dont know how long, exhaled. That is the last thing I remember about the real world. I was sitting in a chair, and all of a sudden the room rotated on its side, as if there was a working hinge in the corner

, and flung me into a field filled with trees and lush green grass. There were probably 20 people running around, picking oranges from the trees, and I came to the conclusion that I was in the florida orange groves (if anyone has seen the commercial where the guy is reaching through the grocery store freezer for some orange juice, and reaches directly into the groves, this is what could best describe the place).

I was just looking around everywhere, and the room hinged back into the actual room I was in. Instead of my friends who were sitting there though, the orange pickers had transported with me, and were all huddled up in the corner, this time watching me! I took a look at myself, and noticed that I was stuck to the wall, above the chair that I was sitting in. Again the room rocked on the hinge, but this time I managed to sop it in between realities by jamming my foot in between them (which I found out afterwards that the sensation was caused by my friend who had accidentally stepped on my foot!).

In the one world, the orange pickers were like 'its all okay, just let go' I didnt want to let go, instead I wanted to stay there (I had somehow gotten back to the orange groves) and watch everyone. I somehow knew if I did let go that I would be ending my trip and be back in my dorm room. Reluctantly, I let go, and the two worlds merged into one. My dorm room, and all the orange growers running around, most of them out of the door (which freaked me out because it was opened [even though it really wasnt]) my friends were all back in the room.

They had filmed my experience, and when I watched the tape, it was again just a 2 minute long video of me laughing uncontrollably, and looking around the room at nothing in particular. The trip was over, and for the next hour or so I felt extremely disoriented (seeing as how I was going back and forth between different realities, which all seemed so vivid). I went to sleep, and woke up later that night feeling fine.

It was a crazy experience. Since then I've done it once more (20x again), and the experience was similar, but the details were all different.
