Accidently Smoking Salvia Extract

So I found a bag of what looked like hash in my brothers room. Thinking it was hash, I dropped a 10 on his desk and went out to my garage to smoke a bowl.

Immediately after the first couple hits I knew it was not hash, this hit me right away and felt like I was quickly approaching the peak of a mushroom trip. Anyways, I ran back inside and tried to go to my room. I didn't make it. Halfway from the door to the stairs my world turned inside out. I started falling to one side like I was getting pulled in that direction. I dropped the bowl (luckily it didn't break) and went to get some water even though I could barely see where I was going. I fell against my water cooler and realised I didnt have a glass.

By this point I was already panicking because I didn't know what drug I had just smoked, and now I got the worst feeling come over me. It felt like the world was coming to an end, I could hear voices but I couldnt see where they were coming from. They were telling me that my time was up and to come with them. At this point I, briefly, completely disconnected with reality. I was in a struggle to stay HERE and not be swept away into oblivion.

It's hard to describe, but it felt like my entire life was fake and that everyone and everything I had ever known was just a false reality that had been created for me and now I was about to meet the real world.

I'm not religious but looking back on it, I can see that someone might have interpretted this as being sucked down to hell.

At this point, I remembered that I had just smoked some drug and that it would all be over in a matter of time so I just tried to relax and go with it. Luckily it only lasted another minute or so before I started coming down. Relief. I had managed to get into my room and now I went downstairs to see what I had down. There was a puddle of water by the water cooler where I had tried to fill up a non-existent glass of water. There was a bunch of ash of the remainder of the salvia scattered over the floor from when I dropped my bowl. My room looked like a mess, clothes everywhere, I dont know what I had been looking for.

All in all, this was an unsettling experience, mainly because I had no idea what I had just smoked until it ended.
I finally experienced the 'gravity' that people always talk about from salvia, the way I feel like I am being pulled in some direction that doesnt exist.. I remember trying to lie down but I couldnt find a comfortable position because of this gravity.

In conclusion, it scared the shit outta me but I'm going to do it again sometime with another person and a sitter.
