Salvia Divinorum? What is it?

Salvia Divinorum is a herb that is part of the mint family. The ancient Mazatec shamans heavily used the herb as means to find the god within. The substance is highly intoxicating and can induce massive dissociative effects including hallucinating. The affects of smoking Salvia Divinorum can affect the user for up to thirty minutes after consumption. Salvia is only naturally occurring substance that induces hallucinations in the manor that it does.

Salvia Divinorum is still legal in most states however the the DEA has placed the substance on a list of "Drugs of concern" and is currently considering placing the substance as a controlled substance in the same category as LSD.

Salvia Divinorum
Salvia is widely sold in both smoke shops as well as online in online head shops. Salvia is often sold as 'legal buds' and comes in both leaf form as well as in extract form. The extract is extremely potent and has been known to be over bearing when used for the first time.

According to Wikipedia the following are immediate affects of using Silvia for psychedelic experiences:

* Uncontrollable laughter
* Past memories, such as revisiting places from childhood memory
* Sensations of motion, or being pulled or twisted by forces
* Visions of membranes, films and various two-dimensional surfaces
* Merging with or becoming objects
* Overlapping realities, such as the perception of being in several locations at once

A survey of salvia users found that 38% described the effects as unique. 23% said the effects were like yoga, meditation or trance.

I've tried salvia before. The first couple times it didn't do much at all. The one time it did work, I never wanted to touch the stuff again, lol. It was way too intense for my liking. However I do have a history of anxiety issues so that could be a factor. It blows my mind that something this powerful can be legal but then marijuana remains illegal. I've never smoked any marijuana that made me trip as intensely as salvia...doesn't make much sense to me...
