Last night brought my first encounter with the wonderful, lovely Salvia.
I am a real fan of occasional marijuana and booze, but hadn't ever tried a hallucinogenic drug. So, after getting our hands on some Salvia, a few friends and I ventured into the unknown.
20x, $45 for eight hits (or so they said -- between the six of us, we each had a good hit; there is still enough for another six). A homemade water bong, a torch lighter (which I've learned is pretty much crucial), and we were good to go.
I took a couple of hits, and felt dizzy. Tipsy. Very, very drunk. But no grandiose visions, nothing psychedelic. I was disappointed. Determind to see something, I sat down on a stone bench and proceeded to take the biggest hit I could.
Within seconds, I remember that I started laughing uncontrollably and was being pulled away from the world. There were two friends in front of me, but they ceased to exist. The night sky turned into a giant, spiralling kaleidoscope. A pale blue and yellow tunnel started to spin all around me. It was someone's house, and they were somewhere behind me; I could feel their presence, but I couldn't see them. I kept gliding smoothly down the tunnel, away from whoever (or whatever) it was.
After about five minutes, I began to pull myself out and I returned to myself, to this dimension. Within ten minutes, the experience was over. It was amazing.
Salvia uber alles.
