What is Salvia?
Salvia divinorum is a Mexican plant, with leaves that contain psychoactive chemicals that produce hallucinations when chewed or when dried and smoked. Sold on the internet and in ‘headshops’ as ‘herbal ecstasy’, salvia is one of a number of substances marketed as ‘herbal highs’.
Depending on dosage, experiences can vary from the fairly mild to full blown with psychedelic hallucinations. At higher doses users can experience dramatic time distortion, vivid imagery and scary hallucinations.
Salvia is sold in dried leaf form and costs on average £12 for 1oz. It is either chewed or smoked.
