Salvia divinorum (ska maria pastora) was discovered by the Mazatec indians. The shamans of the Mazatec tribe used this holy medicine to induce a trance. In this trance they could travel through the unconsciousness of the patient to find the source of a disease.
In contrast to most Salvia extracts on the market, our salvia extracts are 'standardized'. This means that it is purified, which has several benefits over 'crude' extracts:
- It is more potent than crude extracts
- It is much less damaging to your health than crude extracts, containing no extra plant fats or solvent residues
- It can be kept much longer, in theory indefinitely when kept out of direct sunlight
- The quality is consistent from batch to batch
The active compounds of salvia divinorum are salvinorin A en salvinorin B. The main compound salvinorin A is currently the strongest isolated hallucinogenic substance known.
You cannot compare Salvia with other hallucinogenic plants like magic mushrooms and cacti, it has its own unique effect. Salvia causes only a short trip, 20 minutes to 1 hour. After this you return to reality quickly.
During the trip several states can occur: 2-dimensional hallucinations, out of body experiences, becoming an object, travelling back in time, being in several places at once and uncontrolled laughing.
The S-A-L-V-I-A trip scale shows 6 trip stages:
• S - SUBTLE effects, Relaxation and increased sensual appreciation may be noted. This mild level is useful for meditation and may facilitate sexual pleasure.
• A - ALTERED perception, colors and textures are paid attention to. Thinking becomes less logical, and more playful.
• L - LIGHT visionary state. Closed eye visuals (clear imagery with eyes closed).
• V - VIVID visionary state. Complex three dimensional realistic appearing scenes occur. With eyes closed you experience fantasies. So long as your eyes are closed you may believe they are really occurring.
• I - IMMATERIAL existence. Individuality may be lost; one experiences merging with the Divine.
• A - AMNESIC effects. Loss of consciousness. The individual may fall, or remain immobile or thrash around. Dangerous!
The Mazatec indians used two methods of consuming salvia: chew for a long time and then swallow down the leaves, or dissolve the leaves partially in water and drink it. However, both methods are not very tasteful.
When you are new to salvia, start of with only a very small amount to test your sensitivity. The effect of salvia is different for each person and can be very overwhelming for some. Be especially cautious with the 20x extract!!
It is important to use the salvia in a quiet, dark environment (with some candles for instance). A television is deadly for the experience, but an appropriate piece of music can be very inspiring. If you have no experience with salvia or other entheogenic substances, having a sober sitter present is absolutely necessary.
For more tips about using Salvia, see Salvia.net.
BE CAREFUL WITH THE 5X, 10X, 20X and 30x EXTRACTS OF SALVIA, USE THEM ONLY WITH A SITTER PRESENT, AND IF YOU HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE WITH NORMAL SALVIA!!!
Salvia is not dangerous or addictive, but it is not a party drug! So use it in a quiet and intimate environment so the salvia can show its full potential.

I've been smoking salvia for some years now, buying now and then in different shops. But, I must say, this is something different, you can tell. Really excellent, powerful, it gave me the experience of my life. Please read the Usage item by azarius and do it that way, and, if you are new to salvia, search for a sober sitter who can remain in silence and care for you while you´re tripping.
Once more, the best salvia ever ... thank you Azarius for the good work.
After having tried nearly everything (shrooms, lsd, mescaline and lots more stuff) I wanted a new sensation, something really wonderful. I was in hope something amazing would change my life, and all is the same than before, but something has definitively changed, but it is so subtle I hope it wont dissolve in air. Now all I have to say is that a little break in commonday continuity can reward new knowledge as new points of view are opened. Finally, after this experience I will write down a book based on my experiences with psychedelics. I expected to see aliens walking around and voices talking to me but nothing as weird did happen. Why? read my book!! (but give me time to write, translate and publish, lol). I wanted more, but I'm not disapointed. Be carefull but dont be afraid.
I don't really know how to describe that, what has happened to me yesterday evening, when i smoked about 200mg of 20x extract (in one shot)... Well, maybe i will just start from the beginning, first i tried salvia leaves, tried to smoke them, just dizzyness, chewing has given me laughter, mild hallucinations, the strongest one was a piscture of a car trying to come out from the wall, breathing walls, all edges became curved, and reality felt like a dream... it was nice, mind was expanding, really incredible experience.
Yesterday I've tried the extract... it.... it was pure insanity. Few seconds after taking the shot i felt "ok, it's starting" it was the dreamstate, but it lasted for 5 seconds maybe, then i was pushed to another world, i saw shapes, fishes made from... books, than walls started to walk, I closed my eyes and entered another dimension, i saw a lake, boats, scenes from my past, my distant family, my old house... it was real as much as a dream can be... I suddenly got back I forgot my language, my thoughs were words without any meaning, just some random letters put together OR maybe the words in my head were real but i just could not understand it? I was thinking in this surreal, impossible language, and i remember the thoughts to be something about my parents doing XXX (the xxx means a thing that is impossible to describe in any human langiage, i can;t say this word now, this is insane shit) I've tried many different things but salvia is the gate to another world, with all other substances, you keep some connection to the real world, you can hallucinate, see shapes etc, but you are aware of the real world, with salvia... it's impossible. I can;t even describe what was happening to me, but it was the most psychedelic experience in my life. Gate to another world.
