Salvia Divinorum is one of about 2,000 varieties of sage.
Although Salvia Divinorum has been known and used for centuries by the Mazatec Indians, the use was concentrated in a small area in the Oaxacan Mountains and wasn’t known outside of its extremely limited range until a Gordon Wasson-Albert Hoffman expedition in 1962.
Salvia Divinorum was highly esteemed by the Mazatecs. Salvia divinorum was believed to be a magical herb. Salvia Divinorum was used for everything from healing the sick to ceremonially induced visionary states for religion.
Our Salvia Divinorum extracts is produced from high-quality, organic Salvia divinorum foliage grown in Oaxaca, Mexico by Mazatec American Indians. We offer Standardized Salvia divinorum extracts with a guaranteed 25 mgs of Salvinorun A per gram of leaf in the 10x and 12.5 mgs Salvinorun A per gram in the Standardized 5x extract. Our non- standardized extracts have been twice extracted to insure a consistently high level of quality.
Strong effects can be difficult to attain from smoking dried leaf, but extracts and potency-bred leaves can cause dramatic, sometimes frightening, and completely enfolding entheogenic mind-states. Many people who try S. divinorum do not find the effects at all pleasant and choose not to repeat the experience. Salvia divinorum is traditionally used by chewing pairs of leaves. Modern use includes both smoking and chewing the leaves. When the leaves are chewed, the quid and bitter juice are held in the mouth to increase absorption.
