I have tried it ,and was not impressed at all.


>>>>"Microgram-for-microgram, it's the most potent psychoactive drug out there," said Dr. Ethan Russo, a neurologist in Missoula, Mont., who studied the herb while writing "Handbook of Psychotropic Herbs." <<<<


I am not a chemist but 'that' statement contradicts everything I have ,read ,heard and ,experienced.Also if what he says is true it would be illegal in the US already.

Damn, that quote about the grains of sand makes me wanna do it. I wonder how it would be to smoke salvia during the peak of a mushroom trip.

Salvia is ridiculous. After seeing the things I saw on my trip and seeing my girlfriend at the time absolutely freak the fuck out, I came to the conclusion that it is intense. I would probably only do it one more time. I'm surprised scientists don't have a strong grasp on how it actually works. I think it just takes you deep, deep into your own subconscious.

ive tried it a few times. for one thing they're wrong about it being the most potent drug.. dmt is basically salvia x10 (havent tried it... its more illegal than heroin..).
its not that sick of a drug, impossible to get addicted to or get in a habit of doing. id recommend trying it atleast once tho, but definately have a sitter for your first time. just like if you try schwag or skunk, the effects depend on if your doing like salvia 5x, 10x, 20x,....100x. ive done around 15-20x and its really intense. kinda made me look at things a little differently for awhile. the first time i smoked salvia i had a full on hallucination for the only time in my life (all the iceplant on the ground looked like eyes all looking at me). ive read with like 50x and 70x trips can be so intense that you can live the entire life of another person, or live years as the paint on the wall, shit like that, all within the 10-20 minute trip.

so stupid that anyone would make it illegal tho, they dont even have a case for it... completely non addictive, not even cool enough to want to do all the time, only lasts about 15 minutes, isnt bad for you at all besides the obvious any smoke=bad for lungs.

Smoked it 3 times, once to try it, second time cause I thought it would be legalized any day, and 3rd for a spiritual trip, but seriously I hate it, it's not even what I'd call "a drug" it's not fun, it's not very enjoyable, usually you have a "bad trip" and only had one that was ok. But honestly if they legalized it it wouldn't change my life in the slightest but I would like it to remain legal for those who do like it's effects. Overall, just ridiculous. Absolutely and for truly ridiculous.

I didn't read that whole article I will tomorrow, so expect a follow up.

But I wanted to comment on the headline if nothing else. Salvia is no longer a secret because the media made a fuss about it. I hadn't really heard about it until a couple years ago. I had seen the name around and it was a "legal herb" to which my belief was all legal herbs rip all but rip offs, some have very mild effects, and they were really only worth a damn if mixed with weed to slightly alter the high.

Then the media started freaking out and governments started banning it which made everyone who would be interested in something like that stop and say "Wait...what? There's a legal drug that works? Where have I been? Where can I get some before they ban it?"

And the freak out was not warranted because best I can tell the majority of people try and say "Ok, that was interesting but I'm good on it. Even the people who continue use don't do it habitually so it wouldn't spread to widespread use anyway.

I don't get sativa. I smoked some of the like x100 and all it did was make me sweat balls and laugh my ass off for like 30 seconds. I'd much rather toke some dank mary.

Gotta take like 2 or 3 huge hits and hold them in as long as you can. Then you will be hurled into the 4th dimension at light speed lol.

Yeah salvia has been known for a while. if people are interested, this video explains why it hasn't been made illegal yet.
[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEPEV_NbfN8]YouTube - Terrence McKenna - Salvia Divinorum[/ame]

i watched it a while ago, but basically there is a certain compound in most natural hallucinogens. so since there's no law against hallucinogens generally, they made this compound illegal. salvia doesn't have the compound, so it took people a while to find out it was a hallucinogen, and the us gov't now has to find a pretense to make it illegal and they (presumably) can't.

my opinion on salvia is that it is very potent. i've only smoked extract. first you sort of forget you're high. then if you do potent stuff, you forget who you are. it sort of rips you away from all that you associate with your life, (i literally felt like "i" was sucked from my body at a high speed) and your only reality is this crazy vision state.
then when you come back after what may have seemed like forever, you can sort of feel yourself quickly running through the details of your life - it's quick an interesting transition back to reality. once in the half salvia-half real life stage which can happen if you don't do enough to induce a serious trip, i thought my entire life from the moment i was born was a part of the trip, which was a major mindfuck to say the least.
its not really fun, as in euphoric, at all. but it's what you make of it. like someone said a few posts up i think the "trip" is a visual representation of subconscious realizations and concepts that for whatever reason you can't understand or formulate consciously. i definitely think it's helpful. now if you combine it with weed thats a different story and it's fun as hell, and trippy. intense laugh attacks and such.
that is my take on salvia, but try it for yourself, and see what you think.

I've used it around 5 times or so, smoked extracts, chewed leaves, smoked leaves. Never had a bad trip, all of them were pretty strange and just altered my reality.
