Substance – Salvia 10x
Experience – Salvia Divinorum leaves of a few occasions
Setting – my friend’s house.
I had recently aquired a gram of Salvia 10x. I was quite interested in what it would do. I had used leaves before and only felt slightly high, like a shorter cannabis high. I had heard of the potential intensity of Salvia and I was hoping to achieve it.
My friend took his bong out and we set it on a table. I loaded it up with enough for 1 hit. I took my lighter and sucked down a lungful of the hot burning smoke. I held it for 20 seconds. I repeated this 4 more times. 5 hits total! Wow, I thought, I am in for an experience. I laid back on his couch.
I almost instantly felt intoxicated. It was a weird feeling. I felt tremendous power building inside me. It was almost frightening how strong this feeling was.
I had a strange sensation. My friend asked if I was ok. I responded “Yes, I’m fine.” But saying this was weird. It felt almost as if there were fingers in my head and under my jaw using my like a puppet… making me talk. Then an even stranger feeling occurred. I felt as if my world became a tube (somewhat like a cat scan. I felt pressed strongly to the bottom of it, but no pain even though intense pressure. It then felt like someone spun this tube fast. I pushed my hands tight against it to keep from falling off.
As I spun in the non-existent tube I closed my eyes. The whole world was still there but changing dramatically. Things were popping up all over. His TV would dissapear and re-appear in other locations. It was truly strange.
The tube seemed to slow down, and I felt a jarring thud. No pain still, but almost like I fell 20 feet back onto the couch. I looked around the room, and everything was normal.
The whole experience lasted maybe 8 minutes.
Afterwards for about 20 minutes I felt detached and kind of high, but that quickly passed.
This was a very powerful experience. It was one of the most intense physical sensations I have ever experienced. Sadly to say I didn’t feel much mentally and did not learn anything from it. All I learned is that Salvinorum A is a powerful chemical. I will definitely use Salvia again in hopes of a more powerful beneficial experience.
