After researching Salvia Divinorum, or as I call it, Sal, on the net, I decided to order some for myself to see if it was real. Because I am under the age of 18, and could not buy it online, I decided to go out on a limb and send $11 for a 1/4 oz. of dried salvia leaves.
About a week had passed since I sent the money to the compnay, and I believed that either the mail or the company did something with the money. This was not too bad because I understood before I sent the money away that the this could happen. Well, when I got off the bus, I went to go get the mail, and sure enough, the package was there.
Ok, not to bore you anymore, I'll tell about my experience with Sal. That night, when none of my family was upstairs near my room, I decided to open my window and have a few hits. It was a dark cold night and was kind of scary even without the Salvia. I took a hit, then another, then one after that. Soon after, like 30 seconds after, the effects took part in my body as I looked at the trees swaying, they seemed to me like they were all dancing in unison, something real weird like out of a fairytale or something. Then I looked over at my neighbor's house and imagined the mother was telling me to stop smoking or something, so with that I decided to close up my window. This however, was more difficult that I expected: This task probably took me about 2 minutes to, which is extrememly sad. After that ordeal was done, I decided to turn the lights off and lay in my bed. I imagined a little dwarf kind of guy on top of a tall mushroom right in front of me. I took a shower, and before I finished, I felt fine.
To conclude, this experience was a new one for me seeing how I am not a hard drug user (only smoking bud and drinking). It was weird, the few hits I took, there were no visions; however, my mind assured me that yes, there was a dwarf on a mushroom, and yes the trees were swaying together. The one problem with Sal is that it doesn't last long enough (the actual high is only like 3-5 minutes after smoking. And the following 20 minutes are kind of like beeing burnt out, but not so dopey). I want to order some of the 5x when I have a chance (and the money).
