Cannabis and Hallucinations

This story is one that will always stand out in my mind. This is an unusual experience and the few people Iíve told had a hard time believing it; I know what I saw.

The setting was at night, in a car; I had a good day and was in a pleasant mood. My girlfriend and I had just finished smoking three bowls of a potent strand of bud; and due to the fact that Iím a lightweight this pushed me beyond my normal high. I was driving because we had no place to smoke (I strongly discourage driving under the influence itís dangerous and puts other drivers at risk. I donít drive anymore.) After I realized my level of inebriation, we turned in to my dadís house where I have a nice basement room with a good energy about it. The room has black lights, lava lamps, a TV, a couch, drinks, and itís quiet. We sat on the couch together where I began my first hallucinogenic experience.

My girlfriend and I sat down on my couch and I put my arm around her and laid back. We were watching TV when I realized how good her sweatshirt felt to rub. I began caressing her sweatshirt and I could feel each individual fiber and crevice that made up her fabric; I felt like the tiny vibrations that made up the feeling of her sweatshirt were amplified and almost loud to the touch. I closed my eyes and continued caressing her sweatshirt and started to see the vibrations that made up this wonderful feeling. I could see her sweatshirt through my fingertips from touch! I then focused my attention on these tiny sweatshirt fibers that seemed to become more and more in focus by the second. I then descended in between the fibers and into her bloodstream. I opened my eyes for a moment because I was taken by surprise. I closed my eyes once more and ascended my touch up to her face. I placed my index finger on her eye (I probably seemed ridiculous to her, but she didnít question my finger's annoying placement).

I could see her eye through her eyelid, her cornea was looking upwards and her eye was bloodshot.
I could see her eye through her eyelid, her cornea was looking upwards and her eye was bloodshot.
The many red veins in her eye began to vibrate and break lose from their seemingly ancient spots; like rocks breaking away from a cliff. They began to swim around the whites of her eyes like sperm or parasites. After a short blind search from these small wormlike creatures - one penetrated the cornea of her eye like I would believe a sperm penetrating and egg would look like. This is when I actually looked at her cornea, and realized it was the earth; I could see every cloud and every wave from the currents in the ocean; I could make out land mass. As soon as the red sperm penetrated this earth/cornea her pupil became dilated (which looked as though a huge hole was being split open revealing the center of the earth). When the hole/pupil of her eye fully dilated a thin bright light emerged from the center of the hole. It was thin, yet almost too bright to look at. At an attempt of diverting my eyes from how bright it was, and also out of curiosity of what would happen if I focused on something on something besides her eye, I followed the placement of where the light was headed and barely made out a sun with a cartoon like face and bright rosy orange cheeks covering its face with its arms to protect its eyes from the intense light; I was startled by the idea of another living being that close to me and opened my eyes.

For the rest of the night I didnít experience any hallucinations as profound as the one I described. I saw colors and shapes when I closed my eyes but thatís about it. Iíd like it if anyone could tell me if they experienced anything similar to me, or even if they want to comment. I donít think the weed was laced, because I almost always experience at least subtle closed eye hallucinations with every weed Iíve smoked. I feel like the hallucinations have to do with either the way my brain is wired, or the fact Iím on an anti-depressant called Celexa (citalopram hydrobromide). I hope this was valuable, thanks for reading.
