To start off I have had experience with psychoactives in the past. I'm experienced with shrooms and have tried salvia once before this experience, but only had minor effects.
My friend R approached me with some 25x salvia extract. I was hesitant at first because nothing really happend the first time I did it, but ohhh this would be much different. He told me the last time that I smoked it I did it all wrong and that he smoked it and had an intense trip.
He told me how when he did it everything became staircases and nothing made sense, and that his friends who watched him said that he was waving his arms around and saying things that were incoherent.SO I thought what the hell ill give her a go.
I met up with My friends R and B and K who were gonna be sitters and try it as well. R packed me a decent sized bong hit and told me to inhale slow and hold it for a good 30 seconds. I hit the bong and filled my lungs. After releasing I felt nothing at first. Suddenly everything began to get slightly blurry. Then vibrate. Next thing I know, Darkness. I felt as though I had no conscious at all, no thoughts in my head, nothing. It was as if my soul left my body.
Then BAM I see a vision of something that cant be described.I felt as though I had become part of a wall of things or possibly part of the sofa I had been sitting on. Nothing made a bit of sense. My mind was somewhere far away.Then I began to see a bunch of random things in the side of my view. I think I saw K but he melted in a sort of way into the ground but he was cardboard? I dunno... Then I felt extreme vertigo. It was like I was stuck somewhere sideways in my head. I felt a cool wind blowing through me as well as the feeling of being pulled somewhere. I could start to make out things in the room. I saw my friend K sort of warp in a 2 dimensional manner back into his seat. Complete panic struck me. What was going on ? Was I dieing? Was I dead already? What is reality who am I.... It was the worst feeling ever. A complete loss of ego and reality.
I was back but still confused as hell. I was not even in the same seat as I started in. I tried to speak but it seemed as though no one could hear me. THen I felt the wind again and became part of everything. As if there were no individual beings just part of everything.
I came back again and everything looked normal except I still felt like my head was sideways but it wasn't... Really weird. I began to wonder what the fuck just happened. O yea I smoked salvia didnt I? I asked my friends who were all sitting around looking high if anything just happened, and if anyone was gonna smoke the rest of the salvia.
'we did already, man'
I remember saying something like...
'How long was I gone for and what did I do'
R replied,'dude u were like spinning in your seat and trying to walk up the wall, then u starting mumbling things that made no sense, u then layed down and got back up a few times.'
That made me freak out but I knew I could lose control of myself on this stuff.
For the next 20 mins or so I was still shocked about what happened and felt after effects that were unpleasant.
It was as if I had been knocked out of this world and just came back. In no way was this whole experience good and I will never do salvia again. It took some time afterwards to fully come back to my normal self.
Looking back it still bugs me out.
