Salvia divinorum, considered in Mexico to be a sacred substance, is an herb that is typically purchased in the form of leaves or extracts. This substance was formerly used by Mazatec peoples during certain rituals, due to the powerful hallucinogenic effects that can occur. Salvia divinorum always contains a precise quantity of pure Salvanorin A, the active ingredient. Measuring it out is a bit easier, so you always consume the right amount. It is quite difficult to determine the right amount if you don’t have a scale at your disposal.
Effects you may experience
The effects of Salvia divinorum generally last as long as those during a normal trip. The effects are not the same for everyone, but we will point out some examples of the effects that you may experience.
- The sense of occupying another person’s body;
- Seeing everything in two dimensions;
- An out-of-body experience;
- Perceiving space and time differently;
- The sense of going back in time;
- Meeting spirits;
- A stoned feeling;
- Vibrant hallucinations;
- The feeling of being an inanimate object.
How do you use Salvia divinorum?
You can use Salvia divinorum in a variety of ways. Some people roll the leaves up into a type of cigar, which they chew on. According to users, this yields a less hallucinogenic experience than smoking the leaves. If you want to smoke Salvia divinorum, you can do it with a bong or pipe. (Which you will buy at Avalon, of course!) An advantage of chewing is that the trip begins more slowly, lasts longer, and is generally more peaceful. You will need more leaves if you want to smoke Salvia.
Are you going to use Salvia? Here are some tips:
- Have someone that you trust with you
- Do it in a peaceful environment with a comfortable place to sit or lie down
- If you have not used Salvia before, you are better off starting with the 5x extract. With more experience, you can increase the potency to 10x, 15x, 20x, 30x and even the extreme 40x.
