Salvia Divinorum is a plant that contains the most powerful natural hallucinogen that we know today. The active substance in Salvia Divinorum is called salvinorin A (1). A dose of 200 to 500 micrograms is enough and therefore comes close to the dose of LSD. With LSD, effects are noticeable from 50 micrograms (1 microgram or 1 µg is 0.000001 grams).
The plant is a member of the genus Salvia, a large group of 700 - 900 species belonging to the Lamiaceae family (mint). It is the only one that contains Salvorine A. Other members of the Salvia genus do not contain Salvinorin A and are therefore not psychoactive. The plant with soft green leaves originally grows in southern Mexico in the Sierra Mazateca, but can also be grown in European countries under certain circumstances.
The plant has been chewed by medicine men for thousands of years at religious rituals of the Mazatec Indians. Chewing results in a longer lasting but milder effect than when vaped or smoked. Usage of salvia causes dissociation and intense, atypical hallucinations \. The effect comes quickly in the case of smoking, and lasts about 5 to 10 minutes. Most users describe the experience as pleasant, sometimes even spiritual. Others, on the other hand, find the experience frightening and too intense. Frequently reported as an effect is a (temporary) feeling of loss of control whereby perception of the environment is lost. Also any sense of height and depth disappears: the user fears that he will have to be included in a two-dimensional plane.
The principal compounds of salvia divinorum are salvinorin A en salvinorin B. The main compound salvinorin A is currently the strongest isolated hallucinogenic substance known.
Smoking salvia leaves brings you into a dreamy state of consciousness; a high that can be compared with that of marihuana. It is possible to notice a changed perception of things around you. Salvia is also used for meditation because it makes it easy to clear your mind completely.
Dried Salvia Divinorum leaves can be smoked in a pipe. They need to be smoked hot and the smoke must be inhaled deeply and quickly to have an effect. Because salvinorin requires high temperatures to vaporize, it is best to hold a flame immediately above the leaves, drawing it down into the leaves the whole time you inhale. The leaves can be smoked in a short-stemmed tobacco pipe, in a bong, or in a "steamroller" pipe. Fill up a medium size bowl with leaves. Use a hand-held butane lighter that will go out when you are no longer pressing it, not a match. Have a large ashtray or tip-proof bowl to set the pipe in when you feel you've had enough. Remember that when you are immersed in the experience you may forget you are holding a lit pipe. You could drop it, causing a burn or a fire; therefore, it is best to have a sitter present when smoking. First effects will be noticed within a minute of inhaling. After 5-6 minutes the effects will gradually begin to subside. The total duration of the experience may be less than 30 minutes or as long as an hour.
It is important to use the salvia in a quiet, dark environment (with some candles for instance). A television is deadly for the experience, but an appropriate piece of music can be very inspiring. If you have no experience with salvia or other entheogenic substances, having a sober sitter present is absolutely necessary.
Salvia is not dangerous or addictive, but it is not a party drug! So use it in a quiet and intimate environment so the salvia can show it´s full advantage. Most people do not feel an unpleasant hangover after using Salvia. Some people do report a mild headache, bronchial irritation, insomnia or irritability. These symptoms seem to be reported more often by people who smoke salvia than by those who chew it, and perhaps might be due to some combustion products, such as carbon monoxide rather than to salvinorin.
