I tried salvia for the first time a few days ago... I bought an ounce and now I don't know what to do with the rest because it was pretty BAD.. I took one hit and by the time I laid my bowl down I felt like I was in a mushroom world, whatever the heck that means.. I just kept saying that to my boyfriend and also I couldn't walk or talk right at all and it was frustrating. Plus, I was sweating bullets and had to take a shower after. I tried it again after that alone and it was even worse... I felt like I was going to die and I was afraid to move. Lol. Ever tried it? My friends always said they never felt anything from it.. yeah right. I thought it might be fun, but now I realize why it is legal...

Salvia has been used for thousands of years in Mexico where it is a native plant. Many ancient Mexican Indians used it for medicinal purposes for the very sick and dying. The problem is that it can cause problems in the brain. Obviously many people use it as a legal high, it's long term and even short term effects on the brain can not be measured. While smoking this people go through different phases which may or may not harm the receptors of the brain and also cause changes in thought processes. This is similar to what was found with LSD. Eventually many states and some countries may make it illegal for social use because you can not predict how persons will react or do while under the affects of this.

I know someone who was a regular weed smoker, they bought some of this stuff to try. It was expensive too, they took one hit and that was it. I had never seen that kind of reaction before. That is some powerful stuff, it should be illegal and more warnings need to be out there. No one should do it, and if they do it anyway they need to not be alone. I know I will never try it. The reaction I had seen scared the daylights out of me. I am just glad for the people the effect didn't last that long.

I've only ever smoked small amounts at festivals here you can buy one joint of it. It didn't have much effect on me I just had a feeling that things were moving around me that weren't moving if you know what I mean. Because it wasn't that strong it didn't freak me out but If I had a really intense experience it could have been quite scary.

molly dear, what am I going to do with you? I went to the link you posted and it says right on there ... "Its effects are considered unpleasant by many people." Some people just have to learn the hard way don't they? LoL. Oh well, now you know!

That's good that the lesson has been learned then hun. I'm like that too, someone can tell me something until their blue in the face, but I always have to learn a lesson the hard way and for myself.

I tried it once, but i only smoked this little tiny bit at a time, over and over again untill i felt something. But it still was not that great. i still have a bag of it that i JUST found today, i will probably throw it in the garbage as i've already had it over 3 years!

I thought salvia was a plant with a red or purple flower. I have some growing. It sounds as though you have poisoned yourself, silly bugger. Are you ok now? Any after effects?

Yeah, it is a plant.. a lot of people grow it to keep animals away from their flowers. It is smokable and people have been smoking it for a long time. It's not poison and there are no after effects.

You should try it. haha I am serious because you never know... a lot of people have positive experiences with it. I'm just not one of them. Plus you'd never know if you don't try.

I am sorry Molly but i have no idea what you are talking about.i have never heard of it.Am i living in the dark ages or what?I do not like anything that would make me feel funny.I get scared way to easy for that.If i would have done that once and had such a bad experience, i would have never went back for seconds.Why did you want to do this in the first place?I guess i do not understand..

I had the same reaction that you had Wooitsmolly. The sweating and all, it was anti-fun and I would'nt try it again. I tried it in 1999, I was alone upstairs. Took a couple small hits and did'nt feel much. I was aware of all the warnings and should have a sitter, but I'm impulsive so I took a big hit. Could'nt move, could,nt talk. I had a flash dream that had me dressed in a cloth around my loins, I was in Egypt and was in a long line with other men walking up this spiral mountain worshiping RA, the son god. Felt real, but oh god what it does to the head. I had residuals for hours. Mushrooms are much, much nicer than Salvia, or pot. Good topic, very real. Don't do anymore though, please.

well i did it for the first time the other day and man it was weird i took like 3 big hits and yes it was hard to move and talk I saw people swimming in the carpet it was pretty cool but after wards me and my fiance got in an argument i dont know if it was the salvia or the build up of him iritatting me or the combo of the two but that part wasnt fun. the only reason I would use it agian is for meditation purposes which i think would work real good if you prepared and just sat there with your eyes closed and meditated. got to try it and see how it goes.
