1 bowl smoked Salvia divinorum (extract - 10x)


The Beloved World of Salvia

Before this particular experience, I had tried salvia several times. From all my experiences my two good pieces of advice for using this substance is to, one always have a sitter on hand until you are used to the effects of salvia, and two always do it in a place which makes you feel comfortable.

The craziest and most intense experience I have ever had from smoking salvia was when I tried it alone for the first and only time. I woke up one morning excited from my recent purchase the day before of 10x salvia, from a head shop twenty minutes away. I packed a bowl good enough for maybe 2 1/2 good hits. I sat it down and ignored it for maybe 30 mins.

I return thinking what the hell. I take my 2 1/2 hits from my bowl and immediatly feel the effects after my 2 hit. As I walk from one room to the other it makes me feel like I'm entering a new dimension (probably caused from the lighting at that time). I sat down becoming a little nervous, but not scared. Thats when the peak hit me and my vision turned into a photo album scene
my vision turned into a photo album scene
. Its hard to explain, but what it looked like was a photo album with each rectangular block showing what I was looking at, and then pages began to turn and turn, and all I saw was a vision which was not normal at all. That eventually ended and it felt sort of like I was having extreme dejavu.

I ran down stairs and noticed my mom was walking in the door for lunch and immediatly ran the other way in fear. After that the effects we pretty much gone.

Everytime I try this I begin to sweat and it makes me want to rip my shirt off cause I'm so uncomfortable.
