I was impressed with salvia. It is pretty cool, but leaves me a little on the ill feeling side after a while. I like how it doesn't last that long.
I haven't done shrooms (enough to get off on them anyway), but salvia barely compares to acid. The hallucinations of salvia divinorum are nothing compared to what I've been able to come up with on acid. Of course this might be a good thing. Seeing shit when you're tired of seeing shit makes for a pretty bad trip.
With salvia you just wait a few minutes and you're fine. Acid, and you'd better get ready for a few hours of it. I just go with it and don't let it freak me out too bad and I've always been ok on acid. If you start to freak, just keep remembering "This is what's supposed to be happening. It WILL wear off...... This is supposed to be happening. It WILL wear off". Worked for me every time.
Although I was once freaked out because my dog licked my 2 hits of acid right out of my lip (I know, ewwww). Luckily I'd had them in my mouth for about 20 minutes but he still tripped pretty hard. I had a hard time that trip not freaking out about my poor dog (who was hiding under our bed... a funny sight for a Rot/Great dane mix). Of course I had to pop a 3rd hit in to make up for what was stolen.
I was trippin' real good. Felt the top of my head turn into liquid when I took a drink from a cup. I sank into the speaker on my stereo system. I also seem to think I can put myself inside anybody's head who is on tv and know exactly what they're thinking. (Really fun with live newscasters)
