Dose: 2 gram of Salvia Divinorum extract 20x
Body Weight: 170
Age at time of experience: 30
Experience Year: 2014
Equipment and Trip Preparation: Just used my glass pipe and a butane torch as equipment. Knew a website I could buy salvia from without fuss so I ordered some up, of the 20x persuasion. Took the day off work, cleaned up the yard and set up my trip area a little, brought out something to play music on. Turned off my alarms and electronics. Put on my light weight waterproof watch and some standard Sunday relaxing t-shirt and shorts combination. I knew what the after-effects would probably feel like so I made some lemonade for later. I brought some pillows outside too in case I didn’t feel like moving for awhile
Mental Status and Environment: Some people like me with low stress life styles (no kids or wife) and easy enough jobs don’t have enough stuff to push them towards a big change. I have used Salvia before to soul search and just for fun, it always takes me deep. I like looking at who I truly am, even if I’m a pretty normal guy I know I have so much potential to unlock beyond my surface.
Tripping inside is very safe in my experience, and that is my go to environment. This time I wanted more, so I went outside. I took my preparation of dry salvia extract , my pipe, my favorite butane torch and sat down in my backyard hammock. It was warm outside but not too uncomfortable for me, I would probably get a little sweaty on the trip anyways.
Dosage: An oversized lump of the 20x salvia extract went into my pipe.
My Salvia Trip:
Initial response – I lay back onto my hammock. Totally taken aback by my decision to smoke salvia at all.. I feel like I am transforming in the hammock. I feel like I am becoming electrically connected to it. I’m used to the heavy sinking feelings and I just go deep. There are birds chirping and wildlife springing around me, and I feel them slipping away as I get deeper and deeper into the hammock cocoon. Bright spring light drifts between the branches and leaves shading my hammock. It goes a little dark from there..
Looked at my watch, must have been about 4 minutes had passed. Tried to grab my pipe to smoke more if I had not finished off the bowl. Didn’t know if I wanted to get a more intense trip but I Leaned over and nearly fell out of the hammock. Let out a laugh but my voice was gone. I felt the dirt almost touch my fingers. My backyard was like a warm womb, I just closed my eyes and considered what it might look like in my mind.
I fought the sleepy eyes for awhile, the trip was becoming a nap session in the garden rather than soul searching. I couldn’t look inside when the backyard was so open and the nature was almost consuming. I felt like I was becoming a part of my hammock.
There was a new connection to my surroundings I had not felt before tripping. This was the feeling I was missing, connection and concern for the nature of reality. Not some room with books and lamps.
Eventually, and I cannot remember why, but I made it out of the hammock and into the grass beneath. I layed in the grass then. I never got the boombox on but I was content enough until the sunset and bugs started biting. With a ton of effort, I remember it was really hard – I got myself inside and enjoyed the lemonade I made earlier that day and went off to sleep.
