    I've been pretty interested in saliva lately. What are the effects and how does it make you feel?

    It's worth trying although I don't personally like it much. I prefer DMT. But some people find value in it.

    It's like being sucked into a whole other world for a few minutes, then you return to reality. Afterwards you might have some after glow for a little bit, but overall the experience should last less then an hour with only a few minutes of intense tripping.

    You can encounter entities and be exposed to lots of information. So it is similar to DMT in duration and effect but DMT has a much kinder vibe to it. Many report encountering a female entity on salvia that has no patience for you. She does not want you there for recreation, if you are going to come it had better be serious.

    Salvia is some weird shit. Not a pleasant drug at all. Too strong, too overpowering, and with too fast of an onset for me. Definitely a mind fuck for sure, and it's just as weird after the trip when you're trying to make sense of what the fuck you just experienced. Overall, it's just too much for me.

    It depends on your personality...

    If you want to explore bizzarre realms of consciousness and likely experience notions of reality which are diametrically opposed to anything you currently hold on to then you may want to explore Salvia. The breakthrough experience which is what most seek and think of when talking about a Salvia Divinorum trip, has few repeating the trip more than a few times. The effects are somewhat variable but there are some common themes: a sensation of a strong force pulling one in various directions often referred to as "Salvia Gravity", vision flipping like pages of a book, entities, etc. If you do explore it, make sure to have a sitter with you, many people try and get up and walk around on Salvia but it can thoroughly dissolve your physical boundaries as well as impair your motor coordination, so a sitter should be there solely to make sure you don't injure yourself. You should instruct them not to speak with you until the trip is over, you likely won't be able to reply for one, It's only about 15 mins or so until you'll be back to near baseline and it's a very internal experience that should be free of any outside distractions, perhaps with the exception of some soft meditative/ambient music if you wish.

    It's often more difficult to integrate concepts or lessons learned from the Salvia trips into normal consciousness than other Psychedelics due to it's intensity and short duration. I think it's beneficial to have prior psychedelic experience with LSD, Mushrooms, or other Psychedelics with a longer duration first before exploring Salvia Divinorum, but that is only my opinion.

    If you are seeking more of a 'how does it make me feel' trip, you're likely seeking the wrong experience. Salvia Divinorum can be extremely beautiful in cotent but rarely does it make one feel euphoric, many find it a frightening and uncomfortable experience. Some people laugh on it but many report the laughter as more of a reflexive action rather than finding things funny or joyous. Some report not being able to breakthrough on their initial attempts and experience moderate effects which aren't as intense, due to particular ways Salvia needs to be smoked.

    I agree with the other posters, I wouldn't put it on the 'must try' list. I tried it once. The sensation felt like something splitting my being in half, with each half curling as it split from the whole. Not a pleasant sensation, nothing I'd care to experiment further with.

    Its worth it. I did some years ago... interesting experience.
    tho I never hit the extract properly with butane lighter I found that smoking it in a joint with cannabis is very smooth and can give nice kaleidoscopic visuals....

    It's definitely worth trying, but I don't like it, personally.

    yeah try it. quite different. i learnt to enjoy it a bit more when i did it regularly. first psychedelic i ever tried. i think the second was DPT?

    DO SOME RESEARCH. Before you try it out. I cant stress that enough.

    Dont even remember who OP was so i cant say if you have experience with psychs or not. but this is a good way to start. although no where near the fantastical, addition to your psyche, sexyness that other psychedelics hold within them. :sunny:

    Honestly, I wouldn't do it. I watched my friend do it twice and both times he got so messed up. He was talking about having rockets on his feet and the coach was he was sitting on was taking him around the world. He freaked out the whole time and would throw shit all over the place.

    I have tried salvia twice and had a terrible experience both times. I don't plan on ever doing it again. Some people have great experiences with it. There is no one answer because it's effects vary greatly from person to person. Try it out if you want but be prepared for a very intense experience. You will not even know which way is up or down! Just keep in mind that it is powerful and very disorientating!

    From my experience i would say Salvia is very intense and it lasts a few minutes. Loss of coordination also happens and sweating too.

    i would just like to emphasize that salvia is unlike anything else you have ever done.

    i tried salvia before any other psychedelic and smoked it casually like weed - got mild effects. then i tried mushrooms, LSD, 2ce and several years later tried salvia again.

    i took two bong hits and don't recall exhaling the 2nd. i forgot that i did a drug. my living room was replaced with some other "place." i couldn't see my surroundings. my whole life was a joke or a prank, and now everyone i knew could breathe a sigh of relief that i knew the secret.

    it was some truly bizarre and pretty terrifying stuff.


    before salvia, i didn't know a drug could be so strong, and completely overwhelming.

    i had no idea what i was doing with my body at the time. my friend told me afterward that i was spinning around and rolling on the couch. i came to while trying to 'get inside' my wooden coffee table.

    it is a very humbling experience. i can usually handle my drugs pretty well. but a salvia breakthrough had me flipping shit like a 14 year old.

    Many times I smoked salvia I entered some strange loop where I thought this was some kind of joke and now everyone is laughing because I'm like this....can't really describe it but I know porkstock knows what I'm talking about.

    I don't like the way it makes your skin feel...or the way it tastes but hey, we don't do drugs for the taste heh. It's one intense experience tho...I only have limited experience with salvia, mostly because I don't enjoy it that much, but it is highly interesting.

    Always wondered what kind of experience one might have after smoking a bowl of salvia with dmt sprinkled on top...that would have to crazy as fuck man I can't even imagine!

    Oh yea, when you smoke salvia, be sure to sit the fuck down!! for real. If you are up, or have any preoccupation of mind you might find yourself drawn to some other location for no apparent reason and this will just be confusing cuz you won't know what your supposed to be doing but know your supposed to be doing something. All of this will go on subconsciously.

    before the thoughts of "you're life has been a joke"

    i found myself in the ritual, with the soul or spirit of everyone that was important in my life. we were all sitting in a circle, and as "it" (the music - it sounded like it was going around in a circle, like a distorted see-and-say kid's toy)...as it came to you, you had to do a certain move. only...I DIDN'T KNOW THE FUCKING MOVE! i just saw my brother do it. how did he fucking do it?? i was stuck in this new reality if i couldn't do this fancy back spring.


    i also felt at one point that the couch started spinning like a spit roast. i was falling back through different dimensions like pages of a book. only i was violently smashing through different scenes of my life, into other ones. i remember getting smashed through the side of the shower at my parents' house with my clothes on. then i was pushed onto somewhere else. on this weird fuckin see-and-say machine.



    if you put salvia and dmt in the same bowl, it would be very difficult to smoke them both efficiently. salvia needs to be burned at a very high temperature for maximum results, while dmt needs to be vaped very carefully and not burned and wasted.
