Salvia is NOT a party drug!

The effects of Salvia are extremely powerful. The Salvia world can overtake reality, engulfing the user in a very strong trip. Salvia is used when you want to open your mind and delve into your thoughts, not 'just for fun'. This makes Salvia not suitable for usage at parties (or other 'noisy and crowded places'). More info


What to Expect with Salvia

Of course the effect of Salvia strongly depends on the quality, amount and strength of the Salvia you take. It varies between a calm, glowing, slightly psychedelic experience and a complete disconnection of the user from his reality, taking them into a hallucinatory world of their own. More info


The SALVIA Experiential scale

The Salvia Experiential is a six level scale designed to let users rate the intensity of their Salvia trip. The six letters of the acronym SALVIA correspond to ascending levels of intensity, one through six. It starts with 'Subtle Effects' and ends at 'Amnesic Effects' which is the last and highest level.

Salvia: Ingestion Methods

Salvia grows naturally as a plant, and thus can be taken in many different ways common to other psychoactive herbs (smoking, chewing, teas, etc). Salvia, however, is never injected into the veins. The old school Mazatek method includes drinks and chewing on fresh leaves. More info


Salvia Quid

In most cases the Mazatec Shamans consumed their Salvia in so-called 'Quids'. A Quid is a small clump of rolled and compressed Salvia leaves, shaped into balls or cylinders and are then chewed. In general, the first effects of the quid are felt around 10 to 15 minutes after the first chew. More info


Smoking Salvia

Salvia’s plain leaves can be dried and smoked in a pipe like any other herb, though it doesn’t work well in rolled joints/cigarettes. In addition, butane torch lighters are best for smoking Salvia because its ingredient needs to get extremely hot before it vaporizes and enters your lung. Inhale slowly and deeply, resisting the urge to cough as much as possible. More info


What’s the best way to take Salvia?

Like most plants, Salvia can be smoked, or it can be chewed or turned into extracts and tinctures. There’s the good and bad of each ingestion method. Some Salvia users are die-hard quid chewers, boasting a more enthogenic Salvia experience from quid chewing, while other users can manage little more than a buzz from quid chewing, instead opting for classic smoking.

Salvia Safety & Tripsitting

Agreed upon by all experienced psychedelic users is the need for an extra, sober person to stick around and take care of a person who is heavily tripping. Having that essential helper, known as a tripsitter or sitter, around is extremely important when one takes strong doses of Salvia or is new to Salvia smoking. More info


Salvia’s Reaction With Other Psychoactives

Due to the strong nature of Salvia, you have to be extra careful when taking it while using any other kind of drug, legal or not. Like most drugs, interactions between Salvia and other drugs can cause effects to multiply, and Salvia’s strong effects can have some unpleasant consequences. More info
