“Come on!,” they waved to me.
“Crumble, crumble, crumble!” is what they said, as they reached out towards me to grab me and pull me into a swirling vortex of energy leading to an alternate reality.
I know this sounds weird, but then again, so is the whole salvia experience.
The space around me closed in to form a tunnel, with only a narrow circular space in front of me revealing the world of our known “reality.” It was sort of like staring out of a tiny porthole and seeing the small remaining vestige of the world we know. I was pulled in, as was everything in my outer reality.
A whole group of green energy beings that looked liked stalks of green vegetation were pulling me out of my body and into the alternate reality. I maintained about a 10% awareness of our known reality, but I was gone for the most part.
I met one of the green beings there who on a previous trip introduced himself as “The Crumbleenth.” The Crumbleenth and his associates maintained a tight grip on me and kept me pulled into the alternate reality. They rhythmically chanted something that sounded like “Crumble! Crumble! Crumble!,” although I didn’t get the sense that they meant “crumble” in the sense that they wished that I would indeed crumble.
As the amount of Salvinorin A in my bloodstream decreased, the small hole in front of me in which I could view a small glimpse of normal reality widened as the effects wore off. The green beings again said “Come on!,” beckoning me to enter the alternate reality, but as the salvia was wore off, their grip inevitably loosened, and I slipped from their grasp and back into normal reality.
I now experienced a very pleasant space in which I was halfway in between this reality and the alternate reality. I enjoyed this state for several minutes. In fact, five more minutes went by as I enjoyed this slow slide back into reality. Neither reality (known or alternate) had a firm grip on me, so I rode a very enjoyable wave of being “between the worlds.”
As I slid back into this reality, I saw The Crumbleenth and the other green beings fade into the background, until they finally disappeared and I was back to this reality.
As the green beings faded away, I continued to hear them beckon to me:
“Come on! Crumble! Crumble! Crumble!”
Well, let me preface this by saying I’m a complete Salvia hard head. To even feel this substance, I need to take a good hit or two of 20x, after chewing on some of it’s resin. I’ve often taken up to an eighth of a gram of 50x stuff to no real harm… Which is insane. I’ve been trying to reduce my tolerance to the drug by taking a daily dose of 5x, about 0.2g each time… And, well, I guess it worked really well, as you’ll see here 🙂
Last night, I packed a tight bowl of my most recent 75x extract (Thats 150mg of salvinorin A per gram!) Opened the balcony door, and set up some fans. Prepared the iPod, got the song I liked playing, and lit up. The time was 11:40pm. In one complete breath, I took in the entire bowl of salvia, turned off the lights, and immediately got into bed. Somewhere between the time of getting into bed, and breathing out, I lost it. I forced myself to breathe out the last of the drug, and took a fresh breath, closed my eyes, and drifted into an almost paralyzed state.
I can’t quite describe this phenomena, but on Salvia, I often go to one of two places. My mood (or desires) seem to correspond with whichever place I end up. When I’m happy, I get lost in the physical manifestation of my music, rooms with walls of bright colour, or intertwining plants, all moving towards a common goal. Lyrics can take forever to complete, and they’re almost always visualized as circles enclosing on themselves, book pages turning or hours of conversation with many different people. When I’m upset or seeking advice, I get lost in an incredibly dark place, not dissimilar to a room with the lights off. A single entity or object accompanies myself in this room, to which I converse with, analyze, observe, manipulate or take back with me to reality. But, never have I experienced what was in store for me this night…
I honestly can’t think of words strong enough to describe what I was feeling by this point. For this, I’m sorry. It was probably thirty seconds after exhaling, and my grip on reality was fleeing fast. Every single syllable in the song I was listening to lasted a life-time. Single words took hours, if not DAYS to complete. I couldn’t look around the room I was in, because at this point, I was the room, and I hadn’t fully come into existence yet. You see, my two dimensional self was drawn, frame by frame, during each hour-long syllable of my music. Almost like watching a world come to life, in freeze frame photography. I was forming a circle, yet the room was square. Upon the completion of this geometrical violation, I drifted further into my trance.
With each passing moment taking months to complete, I felt more than human. I was literally above the constraints of space and time. An immediate sense of immortality came to me as I realized I was re-living or re-creating hundreds, if not thousands of full conversations, with hundreds of different people, every second. Real, imaginary, or shadow individuals without a definite ego were all communicating with me at the same time. And, somehow, I was able keep up with it all. I wasn’t a defined being through this, but a two dimensional plane of multiple points. It would seem that each section of myself was operating autonomously to keep up with the conversational demand. It was tiring. By this point, I had aged considerably. It seems my mind was conserving the principles of time after-all, as each conversation took it’s toll in me, as it would in real-life. I can’t describe what happened next, but I understood that my life had come to an end. I existed outside my body, no longer bound to life, death or existence whatsoever. I existed in a dark room, not dissimilar to the one described earlier. I was accompanied by a hexagonal structure: small, about palmsized. No lights, sound (not even my music could be heard at this point) feeling or taste was present. I would say, that this point in my experience was… Well, incredibly frightening
This sense of nothingness almost never came to an end. It felt like years before I regained my consciousness. When I finally did, my iPod had finished playing (I was listening to a three hour long goa trance mix). The time was roughly 2:45. I “awoke” took my earphones out, and went to bed. The next morning, upon pondering over the immense feeling of nothing, I decided I had probably fallen asleep. It turns out that the hexagonal shape was a bastardized version of the molecular schematic for Salvinorin A.
Salvia Divinorum is an herb well known for its psychedelic effects and its side effects on human body. Due to many controversies attached to the herb, different opinions and arguments about Salvia Divinorum are presented by different sections of the society. On one hand, media and many politicians’ talks about the ill effects of Salvia but on other hand, the users of Salvia praise the plant and deny all allegations related to the plant. Difference in people’s perception about the herb has lead to different opinions and controversies about Salvia Divinorum. Many stories had been published and aired by media about the side effects of the plant warning public about the so called ‘deadly herb’. These stories have also influenced some politicians who in turn submitted bill to their state government so as to ban Salvia Divinorum completely. According to them a drug of such strength should not be legalized. But the regular users of Salvia Divinorum have a completely different story to portray. According to them, they have never suffered from any long term side effects and hence all accusations on the herb are completely false. The clashing opinions and arguments about the herb has been quiet disturbing for everyone.Salvia has also been compared to LSD by those who are not in favor of the herb. Calling it a ‘suicide herb’, they echo the though that user of Salvia would eventually commit suicide. But none of the research studies have stated that Salvia has any long term side effect. The contrasting opinions and arguments about the side effects of Salvia Divinorum have only contributed to existing dilemma about the herb.
Salvia – In street slang, “dosing” does not refer to the normal medical administration of measured amounts of a drug. Instead, the slang use of “dosing” is the dangerous and stupid practice of covertly administering a drug to an unsuspecting user. When mind-altering substances like psychedelics produce unpleasant experiences – “bad trips” or worse – the real cause is often not so much the drug itself, but “dosing.”
Salvia – More recently, there has been concern about so-called date rape drugs, GHB for example, slipped into a woman’s drink to facilitate sex (of course, the most common date rape drug is simply alcohol).
Salvi during the 1960s, some proponents of LSD usage were so enthusiastic about its effects that they routinely offered strangers spiked drinks containing the drug. But it’s one thing for a fully informed emotionally mature adult to voluntarily take a drug. It is quite another when someone is “dosed,” and has effects mimicking a psychosis. The reckless abuse of LSD soon led to draconian criminal laws and suppression of research into potential beneficial effects of psychedelics.
Salvia Trips – We Invite you to share your experience with Salvia
Since we started salviadragon.com years ago, we have received numerous emails from customers sharing their Salvia Trips and/or Salvia Experiences. Below is one of them.
Letter received from a www.salviadragon.com customer:
I have smoked Salvia a few times when I was younger and didn’t know what the real purpose of it was.
I used it as a fun thing to do. But now years later I felt like it was calling me back and wanted me to truly understand and experience it. So I ordered it and received it rather quickly from Salvia Dragon. I went to my room, read the “how to use” part of the site and followed the instructions. Skipping ahead to the good stuff. I took a hit and held it in for about 20secs and I felt the same familiar feeling from years before. I exhaled and immediately took another hit. This one was a huge hit. I cleared the pipe and barely had time to put it down and exhale before I was taken on my trip…
The Room began to dissolve into a blackness. I was immediately taken to a place where there where a bunch of figures headed into a great bright tunnel. At the end of the tunnel was a beautiful garden. Full of colors that I have never seen and can not describe though not for lack of trying. These figures all seemed happy and peaceful. I remember that I wanted to go with them I wanted to fill that happy an loved. But I couldn’t not. They said I could not go with them, I asked “why?” They pointed down and I could see my body lying on my bed. They said I couldn’t go because I still have my body and where they were going there was no coming back. I begged and begged and began to cry. I wanted to go so bad but they insisted that it wasn’t my time. That I would be able to go with them someday just not now. Then the garden began to go farther and farther away suddenly I was in a dark room there were leaky pipes on the wall. It was like a basement, I saw my father (who had passed) He showed me my life and showed me how all the things I do, such as Sex, eating, watching TV., playing games, all my emotions, everything were all just masks. They all existed to distract me and keep me from feeling what I should be feeling. Its kind of hard to explain but It was like our bodies are protecting us from feeling the sadness of not being able to be in that loving peaceful garden. So it creates all these situation to keep us busy while here on earth. I cried really hard.
Then I felt myself coming back down to my body. I opened my eyes which were soaked from my tears. I felt peaceful, like a huge burden had been lifted from me. My eyes still tear up when I think of that garden.
I can’t thank Salvia Dragon enough, for helping me get to that place that I will never forget.
