Where can I get salvia divinorum?

Where can I get salvia divinorum?

Why are you asking ?: to a doctor???? A doctors job is to help you find healthy ways of living, not help you find ways to harm your health. If you are using marijuana and want to lessen the harm by switching to salvia, I believe there are better ways to reduce your use of marijuana and/or quit it altogether than using salvia. If you just want to try a new drug, I don't think a physician's duty is to help you do it. ...Read more

Where can you buy salvia/datura seeds?

Can someone tell me how long will my x45 salvia divinorum trip last?

Can someone tell me how long will my x45 salvia divinorum trip last?

It depends: It depends on how the salvia is used. Smoking makes the effects begin quickly, last for a few minutes, and then dissipate over 20-30 min. Using tinctures creates effects in 10-15 min, peaking and lasting for 20-40 min. They then taper over 30-60 min. It's not a "party" drug, and may induce visions & loss of awareness of having a body. Have a sober sitter with you, and do not drive. ...Read more

It feels funny when i swollow my own salvia idk wat to think bc its been like this for 2 almost 3 months ?

Quite difficult: to speculate on what might be the problem.."It feels funny"...is a little too non-specific. Thick saliva can be due to dehydration or from certain medications including antihistamines, decongestants, anti-depressants and anxiety agents. Another thought: globus pharyngis, an anxiety related symptom of feeling like there is a lump in your throat. First stop: thorough evaluation by doc, probably ENT. ...Read more

What causes salvia divinorum to give some people good or bad "trips"?  I had a frightening one & haven't touched salvia since.

No human studies: Salvia divinorum has no human studies of its therapeutic effects. It does cause hallucinations. Its main active ingredient (salvinorin a) has been compared to lsd, which can also cause "bad trips." salvinorin a is also a kappa-opioid agonist that can cause depressive reactions in rats. It can also cause strong depersonalization, which some find very uncomfortable. These effects can persist. ...Read more
