I smoked salvia for the first time last night and I would like to share my experience with you and your readers.

First off, let me say that salvia is extremely powerful. Its baffling that this stuff is legal and the green stuff is not. Last night I smoked salvia with my friend. We smoked it out of a large water pipe and we both took as big of a pull as we possibly could. Within ten seconds my body started feeling fuzzy. I was listening to Tool’s “Vicarious” very loud, and the song became my main focus. I started to get the wierdest visual that I was looking out at the world through someone’s walkman. Then, I realized that I actually was the song. I was “Vicarious”, and someone was letting me experience life for a few minutes by playing me. I know that sounds totally crazy, but I believed it 100% at the time.

As the song went on, the world around me started to close up like a zipper closes your backpack. It made me very worried because I was sure that my life was going to “zip up” when the song ended. Luckily when the song did end I just became the next song. I opened my eyes after a bit and was able to get my bearings back somewhat. I laid on the couch for a few more minutes just trying to make sense of the reality I was starting to come back to. A few minutes later I was totally fine again and happy that I wasn’t just a song. The intense visual part of my trip lasted about 6 minutes, and I was totally back to normal after 10 minutes. Anyway, that was my first experience with salvia. What a crazy plant!
