Salvia divinorum produces an intense psychedelic experience that can take you to a completely different place and time! Salvia was discovered by the Mazatec Indians of Oaxaca Mexico, who made use of its strong hallucinogenic properties for spiritual journeys and to explore difference planes of existence. Each salvia trip lasts 10 minutes. Salvia is legal in most parts of the world including the United States.

Our Salvia Extract 40X contains 80mg/g of Salvianorin-A, and each gram is equivalent to 60 Oz’s of Salvia leaves. Our Salvia Extract is made using a standardization method, meaning that every gram contains exactly the same amount of Salvinorin A. Salvia extract 20X is recommended for advanced Salvia users.

By purchasing more than 1 gram you can save up to 25% more than if you purchase single gram individually! 

Effects of Salvia Extract 40X

Salvia divinorum leaves contain two active compounds known as Salvinorin A & Salvianorin B. Salvinorin A being the primary compound, has been deemed to be the single strongest isolated hallucinogenic substance known to men that is naturally occurring.

You may have heard/experienced the effects of magic mushrooms, and cacti, Salvia is in its own category in itself, the effects of Salvia being unique. The Salvia trip begins quickly, peaking for 5-10 minutes, and then tapering off for another 20-30 minutes.Where does your trip rank? Check out our S-A-L-V-I-A Trip Rating Scale.

Dosing & Usage Instructions

  1. Grab a torch lighter/regular lighter and burn around 12.5 mg for strong effects. Important keep the flame on the Salvia Extract at all times while its burning.
  2. If you are new to salvia, we do not recommend starting with Salvia 40X. Start with a smaller amount to test your tolerance. The effect of salvia are different for each person and can be very overwhelming for some.
  3. It’s important to use the salvia in a quiet, dark environment. If you have no experience with salvia or other entheogenic substances, having a sober sitter present is absolutely necessary.

The weight of a moderately strong dose of extract can be estimated by: 400 / ”X-factor” = dose in milligrams. So a moderately strong dose of 40X is: 400 / 40 = 0.01 grams/hit.  A strong to uncomfortable experience = 0.02 grams/hit.

    5 out of 5 Salvia Divinorum 40x Trip Report - Very Positive Experience!!

    Neil Hughes (verified owner)

    Hey guys, I live in the United Kingdom where Salvia is legal, so I bought myself a few packs.

    Now I had heard so many bad things about Salvia, and read MANY bad trip reports, so I was a little bit nervous, but nevertheless I so wanted to have a hallucinatory experience where I physically see things which aren’t there rather than just seeing real world objects morph etc. I will go through the equipment I used as that may have contributed to all the good trips (I also let a few friends try it and thus far everybody has had an amazing time!):

    – Glass pipe
    – Stainless steel gauze
    – Regular electric ignition lighter
    – Salvia Divinorum 40x extract, doseage unknown, but basically one full pinch between the thumb and index finger, then a sprinkle more on top

    Method of intake:

    Optional) Sit down in a comfortable place where you will be able to lay down. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. You are very likely to collapse and possibly even lose consciousness
    1) Load pipe
    2) Cover rush hole (/carb, w.e. you want to call it)
    3) Empty lungs completely, prep lighter
    4) Ignite lighter HOLDING IT ON THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRETY OF THE INHALE (very important otherwise it doesn’t reach the required temperature and you just waste it)
    5) Take full breath, uncover rush hole 90% through and continue to breathe in until you’re about 95% full then take away the pipe and give everything to friends QUICKLY (you don’t have much time)
    6) Take in some more air to get it right down
    7) Hold breathe, relax, begin counting to 30

    Trip 1:

    I actually have two trips to report. The first was more vivid but the second was crazily abstract and insane so I will briefly describe that too. Anyway, here we go… I took in the hit and began counting to 30, I don’t know where I got to. Next thing I know I’m on my side in what looks like a giant train tunnel. As I became aware of what was happening I felt very excited and fascinated. All along the train tunnel were support beams, I feel as though there is a line coming down from each one and dissecting me along that point. The feeling is not unpleasant or physical, simply interesting… I concentrated intently with astonishment at the vivid dreamscape my mind painted in front of me… The more I concentrated the more vivid the visions became, looking intently at where the “wall” was I could see intricate brickwork. As I looked down the train tunnel, I began to see trains approaching me, and they would each go through me. When I managed to “grab onto reality” as it were and see the real world and my friends, I noticed some more interesting effects. My friend and his girlfriend were standing side by side, I felt as though the gap in between them was a line dissecting me along that point. I began to explain the trip to everyone around me as best as I could, but I was laughing hysterically so I found it very difficult. I believe I began to slowly come down from this point, as the vision became “layered” over reality, though the glare of my friend’s mobile phone camera would keep getting rocketed off down the tunnel before returning back to where it originally was. I recognized the light as a camera glare (though in the trip it was a light on the tunnel’s ceiling) so I began talking to the camera and YouTube, assuming in my mind that my friends are dicks who would upload it to the net. This results in some interesting dialogue, I believe I say to the camera glare “hey YouTube, I’m about to go off on some massive journey this way *points above my head* so I hope you get lots of subscribers for this! Holy fuck!” as I feel myself being pulled down the tunnel.

    The first thing I have on video of me saying to the people around me is: “oh god, I’m having a real hallucination, can somebody get a hat for me? *burst out into hysterical laughter*” as in I believed I needed a hat because I was hallucinating. Yeah very fucking random and nonsencial, then at one point I turn serious and say to my friend “don’t move!… Because if you move… *begins laughing hysterically, struggling to get words out* if you move, you’re going to fuck up the video!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! YOU’RE GOING TO FUCK UP THE TRAIN -HAHAHAHA- THAT’S SLICING YOU IN HALF!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!”

    As I came round a bit more I began to see other visions. I closed my eyes trying to rocket off into another dimension. As I did, I saw the faces of women, two of them, emerge out of the darkness. They weren’t coloured in or anything like that, but it was pretty crazy… Then suddenly I get a vision of a park, everything is abstract outlines but I recognize what each thing is… At the front is a dalmation running along, behind him a man walking a dog, and in the far distance I see a man riding a horse cart, though there is no horse drawing it along. I keep explaining this as it happens to my friends. The effect is similar to a zoopraxiscope, and the images move frame by frame as my friend waves his camera flash in front of my eyes (I tell him to keep doing it though he complains that his arm is getting tired). The vision fades out, and I see abstract shapes which to me look like cave scrawlings/weird chinese letters… It continues to fade until I have no more visions, only the sensation of having 6 parts in my legs (the feeling that I was split into several parts remained for a good 10 minutes after the comedown, which again, was NOT unpleasant).

    Trip 2:

    I’ll keep this a bit shorter. Anyway as I took the hit I slowly started to lay down backwards, and suddenly I feel lines coming out of each of my body parts… These lines form a tunnel around me, a dark void. As I travel backwards through the void I laugh hysterically. Each time I laugh, I see a row of my own self come out of my mouth like I have vomited them up. Each of the me’s are contorted into a different letter and they make words when combined, though I’m travelling too fast to make them out… I believe one may have said “rATTLe”. Then I see an entire sheet full of myselves all contorted into a vague version of the letter T… During the comedown I see my own self running out of my mouth (literally sprinting) and off down the tunnel after each outburst of laughter. I feel as though each time this happens it is my old consciousness leaving my body. I become aware of my surroundings (again I was always aware I was hallucinating, but lost awareness of my surroundings for some time) and see my friend. My friend tells me that I’m being way too loud and attracting big attention. I realize that people are nearby where we are tripping and I tell my friend to cover my mouth to “stop the me’s coming out”… I am aware of what’s happening both in the trip and real life. I continue to laugh as he holds my mouth and attempt to regain my grip on reality. It honestly sounds like somebody is getting murdered or raped (ROFL!) and I hear people passing by on the other side of the bush. I find this extremely amusing! I’m sure the police got some murder reports that night from concerned dog walkers! Anyway, I am able to quickly pull myself back into reality and we leave very quickly as I am still laughing.

    So yeah, two very enjoyable trips. All my friends reported amazing trips too though theirs are less abstract. Friend 1 saw unicorns in a field, and as he tried to ride them, they would run away, though he said he almost got on one of them, and in the second part of his trip he was playing with raindrops and jumping in puddles. I told him to close his eyes and he saw branches forming into zeroes, but he didn’t really like it and it seemed as though he was a bit scared by it so I told him to open them again after which he began seeing ponies etc… All rather gay haha, maybe something repressed haha?! My other friend’s was amazing and he doesn’t even enjoy hallucinating that much. Eyes open he saw a desert very vividly with tribesmen standing around him. I never asked him what I look like standing there (in hindsight I wish I had), though he was responding to my voice throughout as I spoke to him in a soft calm voice instructing him to open and close his eyes and asking him to explain what he saw so I could remind him of it after if he forgot anything (he has never tripped before and had no idea about OEVs, CEVs etc so I directed him through it). Eyes closed he saw himself in a tree with soldiers all around him on a battlefield. At one point he JUMPED BACKWARDS and I was like “WOAH what happened?” and he’s like “they almost saw me”… Near the end of the trip he looked to the left of me and started talking to “Kate”, a girl he likes, who wasn’t actually there… Which to be honest I found a bit unsettling. His trip began as he said to me “why is that tree getting so close?”.

    Love this stuff! I am trying to treat it with as much respect as possible as I know it is very powerful!! Deeply fascinating substance!! Will stick to my method as I have read too many bad trip reports from bong + torch lighter users, don’t wanna take the risk when this works so well!
    And i’d recommend taking half a gram of the ground extract to yourself…you need to take it in one hit, hold it in, and let it out once you feel it kicking in.

  3. 5 out of 5 Salvia 40x Extract - Most Intense Experience Ever (Trip Report)

    Cindy LoveUit (verified owner)

    So before I get into this story, I want to explain my general mindset going into this experience. First off, I was nervous, as I had only heard a few stories about salvia before and they all sounded frightening but also ridiculous. Nonetheless, I was very eager to try it. My trip location was my gf’s place, a small 2 bedroom apartment, and I was having my brother (he is 15, but trustworthy) trip sit me to make sure I didn’t do anything stupid. I believe I tripped at around ten o’clock p.m. because after my trip, I would be dropping my brother off at his friend’s house to spend the night. And finally, I take Prozac (10 mg) once a day for depression and I am not sure how, if at all, this affected my experience. This was single-handedly the most frightening experience I have ever had. I am a noob to psychedelics. The only psychedelic I had done before this was mushrooms and that experience was amazing, however very weak, as I only took 1.7g. Now this was 40x which I was told was perfect to start at; boy was I horribly mistaken. I remember everything as if it had just happened yesterday.
    My brother and I drove to my gf’s place around 10 o’clock pm and we quickly got everything ready. But before I tripped, I felt like getting extremely high on some mary jane. So I grabbed my bong out of my gf’s laundry room cabinet and lit up some flame weed. After getting baked, I opened the container of ‘purple sticky salvia’ and grabbed a big chunk between my fingers; I put it in the bowl, hands nervously shaking, all the while spilling the substance all over the counter top. When I finally had a full bowl of the dark, dry, greyish-green leaves I got ready to take the hit. I had told my brother to keep me on the couch at all times, as I didn’t want to cause any damage to the place while in salvia land; that was a bad idea. I sat down on the couch, hands still trembling and grabbed the bong. I lit up the salvia (biggest hit I could), sat back and held it for as long as I could. It couldn’t have been more than 15 seconds later that I started to feel something. Everything in my peripheral vision started rapidly vibrating and it eventually covered my entire field of view. I don’t even remember exhaling, but managed to yell the words “Oh dude! Oh dude!” out twice (according to my brother, I never said this) before completely blacking out for a few seconds. My vision was instantly brought from first person to third person, as if it were scrolling out in a video game. I saw myself on the couch from behind when all of a sudden my body just completely snapped into this taco shaped object at the speed of sound while hearing a violent crack (however, at the time, I found this hilarious). After I witness this my vision seems to be scrolling out more.
    It scrolls out until I can finally see darkness surrounding this square image of what was left of my current reality. I start hearing everything that ever existed all at once, flooding and over-loading my brain. I heard every sound frequency imaginable. If I could describe it, it would be like a buzz-saw starting up and reaching its peak; magnified by a million, multiplied by a million. The one image of my reality multiplies at indescribable speeds, going and going and going. It finally reached the point where the division of my reality had reached ‘the edge of the universe’ and I felt every single thing that ever existed at once. Every time I swallowed, breathed, moved, etc., every other reality did the same, however lagging behind me. It felt as though when I swallowed every other reality would swallow and I was feeling that for what felt like LITERAL forever. Imagine a life where all you could do is swallow, non-stop, every day for the rest of your life. That is how it felt to do anything on that couch at that moment. It seemed however that the swallowing and what-not was starting to get to some ending point and that my realities had stopped multiplying. I felt so relieved for the slightest moment, when everything dissintegrated from top to bottom. That is when I lost everything I knew. As it reached the bottom, I realized there was a picture behind that dissintegration. I caught a slight glimpse of what I was about to be in for. It was me, shaped as some kind of rectangle like object laying completely flat, face up and with my arms at my side. It looked as though my body was stuffed and filled to the brim in a see-through coffin. Not only this, but there were about 15-20 completely blue men holding this coffin, but holding it without using anything at all. It was just hovering above them, still. These men had very creepy, stern looks on their faces as if they were intent on doing their job. In the background of this image was unimaginable, indescribable colors- flowing and melding together, sort-of pixelated in the way it was done. I witnessed all of this for about 3 seconds before I was literally pulled into the hardest, most forceful, turning and winding feeling at an amazing speed. It was these blue men, pulling me along with them wherever they went. They followed some kinds of ‘roads’ (the best I can describe it) that went on for eternities and eternities. It was pure and utter hell.
    I was witnessing all of this, however I was being zoomed in and out of third person, all the while being flipped and twisted and turned every which way there ever is and will be. I heard awful sounds and screams. After eternities had passed it seemed as though I had reached a destination. Everything stopped and I went to third person. My coffin, flipped up vertically and slammed extremely forceful and hard into a concrete wall. No wait, I knew what this was. I could literally feel it. This was not a wall, this was a sidewalk. A sidewalk in front of my old house I used to live in, completely out of state. I had become the sidewalk. I could feel every last particle of my being- being spread across this sidewalk, and it eventually spread onto my old house. I spent decades living as my old house. Everything that it felt, I felt. During this time, I didn’t feel so horrible. It was like I had finally felt a little bit of peace and quiet. But this peace and quiet was ripped away from me, when the little blue men came back, somehow grabbed every single particle of me and vacuumed it back into the see-through coffin. I spent more and more time (whatever time was), being forcefully dragged and thrown around by these little blue men into various objects.
    There came a point where these blue men were taking me somewhere, but it was a very familiar place I was headed, I could feel it. They stopped, flipped my coffin up, but wait, what I was being slammed into was not any object at all. It was a very dark dark shade of green/blue. I was slammed into this ‘color wall’ and was able to move. I was no longer in the coffin and it felt as though I was being weighed down by tons and tons of sand. It took every ounce of willpower in me to navigate through this heavy, resistant sand. I started to feel closer to the surface. I wiggled my way up as hard as I could back into the couch and my own body. I was finally back in the real world (sorta)! Everything looked as if I was seeing every atom and molecule of everything I saw. It was still extremely refreshing to be back. I had never been more happy in my whole existence as a human being! But these feelings were short lived. As soon as I forced myself to stand up, I was greeted by my brother, who pushed me back onto the couch and exclaimed, “dude you gotta stay down!” I fell back onto the couch, but shortly after was transported back to right before he said this. “Dude you gotta stay down!” I heard him yell, and then I fell back onto the couch again. This looped for LITERAL forever and I thought I was stuck in this looped state for the rest of my life. I was entirely convinced at that moment that I had discovered the ‘truth’ behind life, which was these blue men forcing me to live meaningless, slow, painful lives as various objects and that my own brother was in on it. He knew that the blue men would do all of this. He knew they would torture me for eternities on end. I was forcefully dragged back into the ‘blue man’ world again and lived more and more lives as tables, chairs, water, plants, floors, but these lives seemed to be more depressing and meaningless. They seemed so empty, and eventually I felt as though I died. I completely disconnected from anything and everything there was. I just kinda ‘was’.
    But again, salvia did not keep me grounded in one spot for long. I was hurled into another very familiar scene. It was my old house again, but this time I was inside, in the living room. I saw it vividly. Every detail of it. I stuck my hand out to signal and say, “what the fu-” but I stopped as I looked at my hand and noticed it was the hand of my father. My father is still very much alive, but is troubled deeply and I care for him very much. I started to feel every anxiety he had ever felt. Then next thing I new, I was in my oldest brother’s body. It cycled through endless amounts of people and places, and I felt every single feeling that you could ever experience in your life. It was like getting anxiety times infiniti and it was very unpleasent. While all of this was going on, I was hearing loud high and low pitched yells coming from all directions. It scared me and I felt horrible. I am not sure how I awoke, but I woke up drenched in sweat, face-down on my gf’s couch and immediately started saying “no, never again, I am done, dude no omg…” to my brother and then told him I needed water. I stood up and ran over to the sink to drink some water. Everything was still extremely distorted and I took a huge gulp of water and leaned down into the sink. The next thing I know, I’m being vacuumed into the garbage disposal and I wake up on the couch with my shirt off. Still woozy and uneasy, but feeling better. It takes me about 45 minutes to be able to function normally again.
    I look at the time, and it is around 11:15. The trip lasted a very long time. Longer than I feel it should have. I cleaned my gf’s place, drove my brother to his friend’s house and kept thinking about the trip. It’s been about 3 months since the trip. It really scared me at the time, but I feel as though I value my existence on Earth a lot more now. I feel more compassionate towards others and just feel better in general. It was a crazy experience and extremely frightening, but turned out to help me in the long run. If you’re gonna try salvia, I suggest going lower on the extract. If you want a mind-blowing and possibly horrifying experience, then do what I did, and start a little higher. Keep tripping everybody! Thank you for reading!

      @Cindy LoveUit, it seems after reading your second-time experience that you got “what you needed, but not what you wanted” per se. Which is usually how psychedelics go. Amazing report. I hope I can remember all of mine that vividly.

  4. 5 out of 5 Rings true

    Edg3crusher41 (verified owner)

    I will rate this not on my experiences but on the integrity of the company in question. I received a package so discrete I was convinced I was scammed receiving lawn clippings. Far from the truth I received both a profound and potent product capable of delivering 10+ experiences. A little goes a long way. My only complaint again not causing rating to change is most comparable substances when a negative experience happens its because ego death and if you think about what was negative there is allot to learn about self and ways to grow from it. Salvia when negative just rapes you and leaves you in the corner screaming why. No ego death no lesson just a new respect for the potent leaf and it’s entities.

Salvia divinorum

What is Salvia divinorum ?

Salvia divinorum is a hallucinogenic plant, traditionally used by Central American shamans for healing and spiritual insight. It interacts with the brain in a completely unique way that produces psychedelic effects unlike any other hallucinogenic drug that induces astral projection, divination and out of body experiences and enhance spiritual development.

For more information please consult the following online resources: Salvia divinorum and How to use Salvia Extracts

How do I use Salvia Extracts ?

To use Salvia Extract follow these simple steps:

  1. Buy Salvia Extract, we recommend starting with the explorer pack for those who have never tried Salvia 10x and 20x offer a perfect entry point. For those who like to live on the edge we recommend the expert pack, Salvia 20x, 40x and 60x will provide you with enough punch to “break through”.
  2. A water pipe/bong, or hand hand pipe and a lighter, we recommend using a torch lighter is possible.
  3. A sitter (person to keep an eye on you during your session) avoid being in large groups.
  4. A comfortable safe environment where you can comfortably feel no one will judge you.
  5. Put 0.1 to 0.2 grams into your smoking device light up keep flame on salvia extract while inhaling at the same time. Inhale the smoke and hold it in for as long as possible. Release and let Salvia show you a whole new side of life you have never experienced before.

For a more in-depth look at usages of salvia divinorum consult our how to smoke salvia guide.

As a first time buyer of salvia what should I buy?

We recommend starting with Salvia 10x or Salvia 20x. We offer a great explorer pack deal that includes both options at significant savings. If you are comfortable with the product, it is recommended to use a more powerful extract such as Salvia 40x and Salvia 60x, specials include our expert pack if your looking for more value. Most buyers prefer the most potent extracts, not only because they are more cost effective, but because of its more potent effect requiring less to achieve a Salvia break through trip.


What is the difference between Salvia 10x, 20x, 40x and 60x ?

What is the difference between 10x, 20x, 40x, and 60x ? What does it all mean and why are you paying so much more for Salvia 60x versus 10x. Salvia divinorum leaves contain Salvianorin-A which is what makes Salvia special and causes its hallucinogenic effects. 1 oz of Salvia divinorum leaves contains approximately 1.2 mg of Salvianorin-A, you have to chew 1 oz of fresh Salvia leaves just to get 1.2 mg of Salvianorin-A, which has very weak effects. Chewing Salvia divinorum leaves can be great if you are using it for healing purposes, but not for spiritual Quests. Central Americans that used Salvia divinorum in rituals had to burn a very large stack of salvia leaves for their shaman to get enough salvianorina-A to have his vision quests. Rest assured no bond fires required with Salvia Extracts.

We remove all the useless salvia plant matter and extract the active compounds redeposit them into a single gram. Lets take Salvia 10x  1 gram as an example, in each gram you will find 10 times what you find in 1 oz of Salvia leaves, it takes 10 oz of leaves to make 1 gram of Salvia 10x. Now compare Salvia 60x with 72 mg/gram of salvianorin-A it takes about 70 to 80 oz of leaves for 1 single gram. The stronger the extract the more Salvianorin-A product you get packed in a single gram but the more resources it takes to create it and thats why their is such a steep difference in price between 10x and 60x.

For more information on the basics of how we make Salvia Extract go to our blog.

Legal status of Salvia divinorum by country
Country Possession Sale Transport Cultivation Notes
 Australia Illegal Illegal Illegal Illegal As of 1 June 2002, Australia became the first country to ban Salvia and salvinorin. According to the Australian Drugs and Poisons Committee, salvia had not yet shown evidence of damage or threat to public health/safety but had potential to be abused. In a statement which has been criticized as self-negating the committee said, “there was no evidence of traditional therapeutic use other than in shamanistic healing rituals”. On 1 June 2008 the State of Queensland made Salvia divinorum a Schedule 2 Dangerous Drug in the same category as Cannabis Sativa and GHB.
 Belgium Illegal Illegal Illegal Illegal In October 2004, “salvorin A”, a misspelling of salvinorin A, was added to the Belgian list of illegal products, so the law was actually banning a non-existent substance. Two years later, in October 2006, the mistake was corrected, and the whole Salvia divinorum plant was made explicitly illegal.
 Brazil Illegal Illegal Illegal Illegal Salvia is illegal in Brazil since 2012.
 Canada Legal Illegal Illegal Illegal In Canada Salvia is an unapproved herbal supplement that is prohibited by law for sale in Canada. The federal government says products containing salvia divinorum and its active ingredient, salvinorin A, are considered natural health products and, as such, must be authorized by Health Canada, before they can be sold. Salvia is unapproved for sale in Canada.
 Chile Legal Illegal Illegal Legal “On August 8, 2007, the Chilean government issued a decree making the trafficking of Salvia divinorum and salvinorin A illegal.”
 Croatia Illegal Illegal Illegal Illegal Salvia divinorum was banned in Croatia in April 2008 by addition to the official list of illegal substances and plants.
 Czech Republic Illegal Illegal Illegal Illegal Salvia divinorum was banned by law nr. 106/2011 Coll., effective 22 April 2011, which added it to the list of illegal substances. Holding leaves, plants and extracts containing salvinorin A and growing them is considered illegal.
 Denmark Legal Medically and Scientifically Legal Medically and Scientifically Legal Medically and Scientifically Legal Medically and Scientifically With effect from 23 August 2003, Salvia divinorum and salvinorin A were classed as ‘category B’ drugs in Danish law. Category B includes psilocybin mushrooms, cocaine, amphetamine, and several others substances that are only legal for medicinal and scientific purposes. Possession carries a penalty of up to 2 years in prison.
 Finland Legal Medically Legal Medically Legal Medically Legal Medically Finland passed legislation in August 2002 making it illegal to import Salvia divinorum without a prescription from a doctor.
 France Legal Legal Legal Legal It is legal to sell Salvia Divinorium as a non-narcotic.
 Germany Illegal Illegal Illegal Illegal Salvia divinorum was effectively banned in Germany in February 2008 by addition to the official list of illegal substances. Previously the government tried various ways to make Salvia divinorum illegal in Germany.
 Indonesia Legal Legal Legal Legal
 Ireland Illegal Illegal Illegal Illegal Salvia divinorum is no longer legal in the Republic of Ireland. Salvinorin A, which is Salvia divinorum’s main psychotropic molecule, is listed as a controlled substance in S.I. 552/2011 Misuse of Drugs (Amendment) Regulations, as is “any product whether natural or otherwise including any plant or plant material of any kind or description, which contains any proportion of the said substance”.
 Italy Illegal Illegal Illegal Illegal In August 2004, the Italian government decreed salvinorin A “a substance with hallucinogenic properties that may cause conditions of abuse and can manifest latent psychiatric pathologies like acute psychosis and depressive psychosis even in an irreversible way” and put it and the plant Salvia divinorum on their ‘table I’ of outlawed psychotropic substances in March 2005. The Italian government referred to an evaluation of Salvia made by the Italian National Health Institute, assessing it as “a powerful natural hallucinogen” to justify their decision. The Italian Ministry of Heath Decree (in Italian) (Google translated into English). Cultivation of the plant or the possession of more than 0,5 mg of Salvinorin A carries a penalty from 6 to 20 years in prison.

 New Zealand Need License Need License Need License Need License In November 2007 New Zealand National party MP Jacqui Dean called for the government to take action, saying – “Salvia Divinorum is a hallucinogenic drug, which has been banned in Australia, and yet here in New Zealand it continues to be sold freely.” and “We’re dealing with a dangerous drug here, with the minister’s wait and see approach like playing Russian Roulette with young people’s lives.” Jacqui Dean has similar concerns about the ‘party pill’ benzylpiperazine (BZP), over which Associate Health Minister Jim Anderton (Progressive party) has accused her of indulging in political grandstanding, saying – “Perhaps Mrs Dean doesn’t subscribe to the idea that any Government must balance the need to act promptly with its responsibilities to act fairly and follow due process, particularly where its actions affect those who are currently acting within existing legal constraints.” When questioned by Maori Party MP Tariana Turia, on why she was unwilling to take the same prohibitory line on smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol as she took on BZP Ms Dean said “Alcohol and tobacco have been with our society for many, many years.” In September 2007, the Social Tonics Association of New Zealand (STANZ) called for Jacqui Dean to step down from speaking on drug issues after she demonstrated “a lack of credibility in calling for the ban of dihydrogen monoxide (H2O – i.e. water.)” STANZ Chairman Matt Bowden said – “The DHMO hoax played on the member this week is not a joke, it highlights a serious issue at the heart of drug policy making. Ms Dean demonstrated a ‘ban anything moderately harmful’ reflex. This approach is just downright dangerous.” – “Jacqui Dean has clearly demonstrated a lack of credibility in her requests to the Minister to consider banning water; She has also seriously embarrassed her National Party colleagues who can no longer have confidence in her petitions to ban BZP or anything else.” As of 18 July 2013 Salvia is illegal to sell in New Zealand without a license under the Psychoactive Substances Act 2013. This act is designed to prohibit any psychoactive substances which have not been approved by the Psychoactive Substances Regulatory Authority.

 United Kingdom Ambiguous Illegal Illegal Illegal In September 2001, in answer to a parliamentary question from Ann Widdecombe MP, asking the Secretary of State for the Home Office “what plans he has to review the legal status of the hallucinogen Salvia divinorum”, Bob Ainsworth, a parliamentary Under-Secretary for the UK Home Office, stated that “The Government are not aware of any evidence of significant misuse of this plant and have no current plans to review its legal status”. Following a local newspaper story in October 2005, Bassetlaw MP John Mann raised an Early Day Motion calling for Salvia divinorum to be banned in the UK (EDM796). The motion only received 11 signatures. It was later reported that John Mann had written to the Home Secretary in October 2008, urging her to take action with regard to salvia’s legal status. The same report said that the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs had met to discuss salvia, among other substances, in April 2009, and that there would be a follow-up meeting in May. The Observer newspaper gave the content of Mann’s letter to Jacqui Smith “Sadly the issue has come to light again as our young people are using the internet and sites like YouTube to broadcast their friends taking the drug and witnessing the hallucinogenic effects. Our young people are at risk and a wider cultural attachment to this drug seems to be developing that I am sure you agree – regardless of its legal status – needs nipping in the bud.” Home Office minister, Phil Woolas, confirmed to parliament that the market in “legal highs” was now an issue for the government. When asked by an Ulster Unionist MP, Lady Hermon, whether the government intended to classify salvia as an illegal drug, Woolas said the home secretary had written to the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, the independent body that advises government on drugs, asking it to investigate. Woolas said the council had been asked to “provide advice to government on the availability and harms of psychoactive legal alternatives to illegal drugs, so-called ‘legal highs’, with a particular focus on protecting young people. I fully anticipate that this work will include salvia divinorum. The government’s position on its control will be informed by advisory council’s advice.” As of August 2013, Salvia divinorum and Salvinorum A remain legal to purchase, possess, sell, and use in the United Kingdom.

As of 25 May 2016, the New Psychoactive Substances Bill has an ambiguous effect on Salvia divinorum with only possession for personal use remaining unlisted in the act.

What is a Salvia divinorum experience like?

It is almost certainly not like what you expect. Even if you have considerable experience with other psychoactive drugs, you will find that salvia is significantly different from what you may have encountered before. Salvia divinorum is unique, and it is best understood on its own terms, and not by analogy with other substances. Salvia is not a recreational drug, rather, it is best used by those wishing to explore deep meditative states, spiritual realms, mysticism, the nature of consciousness and reality, or the possibilities of shamanistic healing. Experiences vary with the individual, set, and setting as well as with dose and route of administration. It produces a short-lived inebriation that is very different from that of alcohol. However, like alcohol it interferes with the ability to drive, produces incoordination (ataxia), and may produce slurred speech.

The inebriation, at low doses, can facilitate aesthetic and sensual appreciation. However, the experience is not marijuana-like, and salvia is not a marijuana substitute. At somewhat higher doses, visionary trances occur. The lowest level visions consist mainly of closed-eye imagery somewhat similar to the hypnagogic phenomena that many people experience when falling asleep. These tend to be two dimensional faint images. The term “eye candy” is an appropriate description of the interesting closed eye visuals that are not confused with reality. At this level communication with others is still easy and one can move about although clumsiness will occur. With a higher dose vivid visual images occur even with eyes open, and with eyes closed one may completely enter the visionary world, and it will seem quite real, but upon opening ones eyes one will reestablish contact with ones surroundings. Speech patterns may be interfered with and communication is difficult. At still higher doses, one remains conscious but completely enters an inner realm and loses all contact with ones actual surroundings. Some people may move around in this deep trance state and for this reason a sitter is required for anyone seeking to explore such deep levels. With very high dosage a brief period of unconsciousness or at least the inability to subsequently remember the experience will occur. It is useful to have a scale to describe salvia experiences. One such rating scale is based on the mnemonic S-A-L-V-I-A.

Maybe the scale can help me know what to expect. What’s the scale?

The scale describes six different levels of effects, each one more intense than the previous. The overall intensity of a salvia divinorum experience is scored according to the highest scale level attained during the course of the experience.

S-A-L-V-I-A Trip Rating Scale

  • S – SUBTLE effects > Level 1
    Feel a sense of relaxation and increased sensual appreciation. This mild salvia trip is great for meditation and may help with sexual pleasure.
  • A – ALTERED perception > Level 2
    Colours and textures become more vivid, your thinking becomes less logical, and your mind more playful. Enjoy a greater appreciation for sounds/music. No visions occur at this level.
  • L – LIGHT visionary state > Level 3
    Closed eye visuals (clear imagery: vision of objects and designs, pattern and colour distortions). The effects of open-eye visuals are similar to the hypnagogic phenomena that some people experience at sleep onset; objects in the room will appear to be moving, but are distinguishable from reality.
  • V – VIVID visionary state > Level 4
    Open-eyes: Complex three-dimensional realistic appearing scenes occur (e.g. having a birds eye view of a city with tiny people walking around in it).  Closed eyes: Enter a dreamlike/fantasy world where everything will feel real and indistinguishable from reality: Journey to other lands (foreign or imaginary), meet with beings (entities, spirits), time travel to other ages, live the life of another being.
  • I – IMMATERIAL existence > Level 5
    At this stage you may no longer be aware of your body (out of body experience). You will have some lucid thoughts but will have merged completely into the experience. You’ll loose complete touch with reality (where your physical body is and the room and people in it), experiences include: Merging with God/dess, tapping into your mind and/or universal consciousness, fusion with objects (merging with furniture piece)
  • A – AMNESIC effects > Level 6
    Loss of consciousness. The individual may fall, remain immobile or thrash around. This is not a desirable level, because you will not be able to recall the experience. For this reason a sitter is essential to ensure the safety of someone experiencing either Level 5 or Level 6.
