Salvia Divinorum is a plant that contains the most powerful hallucinogenic that we know. The plant belongs to the family of the well-known herb Salie Officinalis. Yet, only Salvia Divinorum contains the pscyhoactive Salvinorine A, which resembles LSD. With Salvia you can get a strong trip. At higher doses visions appear with time-travels, and even out-of-body experience are possible.
Salvia Divinorum is endemic to the Sierra Mazateca in South-Mexico, but also in adapted environments Salvia can be cultivated in the Netherlands or Europe. The Mazatec people chewed the leaves but did not swallow the sap. By keeping the chewed leaf pulp in the mouth for about 10 minutes, the active substance can be taken up in the blood by the oral mucosa. The wild plant Salvia is used by Shamans in the Sierra Mazateca during rituals or as medication for diarrhea, headache or rheumatism. Nowadays, Saliva is most popular because of the psychedelic ecstasy and as part of healing rituals. Apart from chewing it, Salvia can also be smoked in a water pipe or Salvia pipe. When smoking Salvia the trip effects hit in almost directly, though they laster shorter than when you chew Salvia. Salvia is available as dried leaves and as extract in different strengths.
For the unexperienced users of Salvia we advice to start with the leaves. If you do not get the desired effect, then you can try one of the extracts. Only use Salvia in a safe environment and ensure someone is present who stays sober. The coordination of the musculoskeletal system is reduced when under influence of Salvia, so the user might fall. As far as known Salvia is not mentally or physically addictive.
