SALVIA DIVINORUM, I need experienced users input.
To those of you who have no idea what it is. Its a magical little herb that has been known to produce incredible visuals, stunning or sometimes terrifying experiences, and a kind of trip, like no other "drug" out there.
Here's a more detailed description of its effects.
"The inebriation, at low doses, can facilitate aesthetic and sensual appreciation. However, the experience is not marijuana-like, and salvia is not a marijuana substitute. At somewhat higher doses, visionary trances occur. The lowest level visions consist mainly of closed-eye imagery somewhat similar to the hypnagogic phenomena that many people experience when falling asleep. These tend to be two dimensional faint images. The term "eye candy" is an appropriate description of the interesting closed eye visuals that are not confused with reality. At this level communication with others is still easy and one can move about although clumsiness will occur. With a higher dose vivid visual images occur even with eyes open, and with eyes closed one may completely enter the visionary world, and it will seem quite real, but upon opening ones eyes one will reestablish contact with ones surroundings. Speech patterns may be interfered with and communication is difficult. At still higher doses, one remains conscious but completely enters an inner realm and loses all contact with ones actual surroundings. Some people may move around in this deep trance state and for this reason a sitter is required for anyone seeking to explore such deep levels. With very high dosage a brief period of unconsciousness or at least the inability to subsequently remember the experience will occur"
I recently purchased an ounce of unfortified dried leaves. I tried the quid method, this did not work well, and it almost made me gag, total failure. I don't have a conventional pipe to smoke it with, so I had to get creative. I'm sure you know about those asthma inhalers, well to say the least I made a pipe out of that and a little aluminum foil and a needle. It would be great for weed, but I doubt that its appropriate for salvia.
Anyway, I smoked about two small leaves, Nothing. I increased it to 3, still nothing, or so I think. Did feel a bit different, but nothing to get excited about. At that point I decided to call it a night. And here I am today with my questions...
My "pipe" is about one inch in dept and one inch across, or .5" radius. I'm alone at the house and do not have a "sitter" available. I want to smoke a safe amount, at which I will notice the effects but not lose control and or space out. I want to be able to reflect on the sensation, and experiment with the extracts after I know how it affects me and if I even like it.
To sum things up, I need to know should I just pack the pipe full and let it rip and hope for the best? or should I not even bother and send the shit back and get the extracts to experiment with, and if that's your recommendation which X would be good for becoming acquainted with "Lady Salvia"?
Also if you have had any experiences, I'm very interested in hearing them.
Thanks for reading this long ass blog and thanks in advance for any substantial input.
Keep in mind this is perfectly legal, in MOST states.
