Using Salvia Divinorum Safely
Do not underestimate the hallucinogenic effect of Salvia Divinorum. After all, it is the most powerful known natural hallucinogen.
Use: Chewing leaves
You can best soak the leaves for a while in water. Soak the dried leaves (2 - 8 grams) in water. Then, chew them for half an hour. The effect will slowly increase in power, and will then last for 1 to 2 hours. The leaves taste bitter, and can cause nausea. That's why most users prefer extracts.
Use: Extracts below the tongue
The effects of an extract are noticeable almost immediately, last shorter (45 minutes vs. 1-2 hours), but are many times stronger than normal Salvia. With Salvia extracts, put 1/10 grams below the tongue and leave it there for 10 minutes. Approximately 10 minutes after intake, the effect starts. First you will get relaxed, then the Salvia trace starts, which takes about 45 minutes.
Use: Smoking Salvia
When smoking Salvia (extract), it is important you smoke in a quick and effective way. This is possible with a small bong, or a pipe. Note it is important to inhale the smoke deeply and for a long time.
Inducing the Salvia effect
Try using Salvia correctly. Chewing extract or smoking the normal leaves will have little to no effect to most people. It is not recommended to combine Salvia with stimulants, alcohol, MAO inhibitors, medicine or any other psychoactive agents or drugs. Therefore, do not smoke Salvia in a joint. The combined effect could be dangerous.
Sometimes Salvia does not induce a direct effect, as the body needs to get used to Salvia before the strong effects can reached. A seasoned Salvia user can therefore obtain an effect with normal leaves equal to that of a beginner with Salvia 10x extract.
The Salvia Effect
Although Salvia is considered an entheogen, the effects can't be compared to other natural products. With low doses, it induces a dreamy state of consciousness, and it can peace your thoughts during meditation. With higher doses, one enters into a radically altered state of consciousness.
The following effects can then be experienced:
- Turning into an object
- 2-Dimensional visions
- Traveling back in time, especially your childhood
- Feeling of motion and pulling forces
- Uncontrollable laughter
- Superimposing realities, the feeling of being at two places at the same time
Use Salvia in a quiet and secure environment and ensure (no matter your Salvia history), there is always a sober person - a so-called sitter - nearby. Store in a dry and cool spot, so the leaves or extracts do not expire. For more information about the legality, history and use of Salvia Divinorum, check www.ladysalvia.com
