Salvia Divinorum is also known as Sage of the Diviners. You’ll also find it spoken about on forums as Sally D, Magic Mint, Diviners Sage, and even Maria Pastora. But all these names meltdown to one thing: it’s a psychoactive plant from Mexico. It’s been known as psychoactive for centuries, especially by Central American civilizations such as the Mazatecs.
How Potent Is Salvia?
You may well be surprised to find that Salvia is mostly legal in the USA when I tell you that its main psychoactive compound, Salvinorin A, is not only unique, but it’s also one of the most potent natural psychoactive substances available.
How To Take Salvia
Originally, salvia was chewed. It’s also sometimes boiled and drunk as a warm, or cold, tea.
However, it’s difficult to get the potency needed for true psychedelic experiences that way. So what the Shamen and original users found, was that if you use large quantities of leaves, you could boil it down into a concentrate, a raising, that could then be dried out, powdered, and consumed to generate a far more potent form of Salvia.
