2 hits smoked Salvia divinorum (extract)
This is a story of my first, and arguably my most powerful salvia experience to date. I and two of my regular cannabis buddies had been interested in trying this mystical, extremely powerful and surprisingly legal herb for some time. Finally, we made our way down to our favourite headshop and purchased a 1 gram bag of salvia 20X extract. We were very excited about this and could not wait for the day, later that week, when we had agreed to try it. Being in the summer, there was no school and only work, pot, and funny movies to amuse ourselves. The days grinded by but it was finally the day we got to try this amazing herb.

My two friends and I gathered at one of their houses. I brought my beloved bong, Jimmy , and we sat down and got relaxed for this apparently amazing trip. We decided we would each take a turn, so that the other two not tripping could take care of the third while he was under the influence. We picked straws and I was to be the second to go. We were all very relaxed and excited for the experience. We had never tried any other hallucinogens, and no other psychoactives besides cannabis. My friend went first, and took very little, garnering little effect. I did the same for my very first and got little more than a slight loss of memory and a minute of hearty laughter. However, when my third friend went, he went big, and was obviously having quite a trip. This is something I wanted to achieve.

It was my turn to go again, and this time I made sure I was going to experience something profound. I measured out about 80 mg of the small black flakes, and loaded it into my bong. I took two full chambers from my bong, and was surprised how non-irritant the smoke was, compared to marijuana. I held this smoke for about thirty seconds, and promptly started to feel very drunk. My feet started to sway under me, so I made sure to sit down on a comfortable couch. That is where lucidity ends and my transportation to another world begins.

I felt myself mold into the couch, to the point where just my head was protruding. Once I got over the revelation, I noticed that I was not in the same place that I had started at all. I was in an infinitely large, white room. I was part of an infinitely long piece of yellow plastic. I was not concerned at this point yet, and believed this to be a quite normal state, as I had totally forgotten about the salvia smoking and just thought I was a piece of plastic. This lasted for about a minute. I was then transformed into a Sesame Street Big Bird squeeze box toy.

My body, which was yellow plastic, was the part of the squeeze box which was soft and which stretched to make the noise. This is where I remembered that before, I had had a life as a human. However, it also came to me that this was all an illusion, and the life I had known before was not real at all. This struck me and I was quite sad by this, thinking especially of the two friends which were, unbeknownst to me, in the same room as I. I saw their faces briefly in plastic and was sad to know they were just the piece of toy, and that all my memory of them being my friends was fabricated. I then felt a very odd and indescribable feeling, of my body being pulled apart, as if someone was using the squeeze box and stretching the plastic in the middle.

This is where the hallucinations started to come down, and my surrounding started to take some semblance to the real world. My body slowly started to come out of the couch. The scene in front of me, however, which was a turned off TV, an unlit fireplace, some couch pillows, and a video camera on tri-pod, took on the semblance of very profound, and surprisingly, dynamic, mountain range with a blazing golden sun overtop. However, the mountains and sun were moving and changing, and it looked like an oil painting.

I now came back full into reality, with my body coming fully out of the couch. I found that I was sweating profusely, and at this time, all I could say about this amazing experience was “Oh my God!”. Within ten minutes, and dizziness or effects had worn off and I was back to my self again. Since then I have tried salvia on one other occasion with similarly amazing effects.
