Salvia, I Tried It.

Sep 1, 2009

So, as some of you may know, "Salvia" is a smokeable type of plant/herb/whatever that's also a hallucinogen. Turns out that it's LEGAL in 48 of our 50 states, and its sold here in California in smoke shops, some liquor stores and other places. Now, I'm not "into" doing drugs or whatever, but I have a really hard time grasping the concept of me not being in total control of myself, the things I feel, my actions and etc. Salvia just so happens to be a legal hallucinogen that is NON-ADDICTIVE, and won't show up in drugs tests (because it's legal, duh), and ever since I heard of it - I've wanted to try it to see if I would be able to be in control of the substance or sort of "win". To me - I dunno, I've just had this feeling that I can control a hallucination if I ever had one.

Not the case.

I have to say, though, that it's less of an actual hallucination as opposed to feeling things. To me, most of the time, the trip feels like a current flowing against me. You know how currents move through bodies of water? Kind of like that, only it was through the air. But it felt like a thick liquid; plasticy or something. It felt as if it was going into me to make a mold of the inside of my body. It was so weird. It's really hard to describe. It just feels like everyone kind of disappeared and the current took me away from everyone. It was crazy.
