Background: I have had a few experiences with LSD, many with magic mushrooms, cannabis, and DXM. I am a very positive person who also has a very strong stomach and a very strong mind.
Salvia Extraction: I used the extraction technique for Salvia as mentioned in the Salvia FAQ. I powdered about 50 grams of dried salvia leaves that I purchased online. Then poured the powdered leaves into a glass pie dish and added a significant amount of acetone to the bowl, enough to cover the powder by about 1.5 inches. I then stirred the solution of acetone and salvia powder leaves periodically (6 times total) for about 24 hours. Then I used a paper towel and a plastic cup to filter the powdered salvia out of the acetone mixture.
I then was left with another glass dish filled with a very green (almost black) fluid of acetone that contained the chemical of Salvia in it. I then placed 5 grams of dried whole leaves in this green liquid and let the acetone evaporate. I placed a fan in front of the dish to expedite the process. Once evaporated, the leaves were covered with a dry resin that made the leaves appear very dark green or black almost. Due to some spilling and the extraction being imperfect… these 5 grams of leaves with the extracted resin on them are about 8 times as potent as a normal dry leaf, maybe a little more than that.
Amanitas Preparation: This was easily done. I simply ordered the Grade A Amanitas from the same online source. I then placed a combination of mainly caps and some stems into a food processor and ground the mushrooms up. I then measured 13 grams of mushroom powder out and mixed the powder with peanut butter. This makes the taste pretty nice and not hard to down.
Experience: I ingested the peanut butter/amanitas mixture at about 7 o’clock on an empty stomach. Then I smoked a small bowl, weighing no more than .25 grams, of my salvia extract. I smoked it out of a small pipe. I figured I would do this and start my trip while I waited for the mushrooms to kick in. I took about three hits and held each hit in for about 15 seconds! The longer the better but it is hard to do for me. I didn’t finish this small bowl but as soon as I put the pipe down I was blasted off to another reality!
I got very sweaty and I stood up. I had lost all short term memory for about 10 min and didn’t know my own name, if I had smoked anything, or where I was! It was crazy. I did not have any visualizations but that is because I didn’t hold the smoke in long enough. I stumbled around my apartment for about 15 minutes wondering how I had gotten into this state. It was still pleasant though. This altered reality to which I was foreign was still nice. My body had a slight floating and euphoric effect to it. I then came down about 15 minutes later. The after effects were kinda similar to being stoned but a little more noticeable in my body than in my mind. I continued to take this little 10 minute journey two more times before I realized the mushrooms were talking a hold of me!
I did not feel any stomach irritation. The trip was very mellow. I did get plenty of closed eye visualizations and when I would close my eyes I would enter into a dreamy, half awake state where my mind could fly through galaxies of though and color! It was amazing. I ventured to a nearby golf course, which was somewhat difficult because my limbs felt very heavy and hard to move. I laid on the soft grass feeling a mild leftover from the Salvia but primarily the mushrooms! This is about 3 hours into the trip now and I just sit on the grass almost sleeping but more dreaming and listening to Dave Mathews on my IPod.
For the next 3 hours I was peaking and enjoying every minute of it. When I finally went inside my friends told me I was walking very slow and seemed very mellow. I do not remember actually climbing into bed or even going back to my apartment but rather just a long adventure in my dreams! I may have walked all over the place! The next morning I actually woke up early, feeling refreshed and happy with the entire night!
In summary, both of these substances seemed to have a VERY powerful effect on me and worked very well with each other. Overall, I would change two things. I would have smoked the Salvia from a water bong as to make the trip more intense. And, I would not have ground up the mushrooms as they are easier to eat just plain because there is not a powdery mess afterward.
