Side Effects of Salvia Divinorum

Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

Salvia Divinorum is a perennial herb from Mexico which belongs to the labiate (mint) family. People consume the herb as they are unaware of the side effects of Salvia Divinorum. It is generally consumed for smoking or chewing. The side effect of Salvia Divinorum largely depends on the size of the dose.

Increased insight, better mood and greater empathy along with boosted self confidence are some of the side effects of Salvia Divinorum. It also alters behavior and perception. This can be dangerous as times as the person may injure himself or others by running over things around him. According to the users of Salvia, they experience a pleasant mood followed by weird thoughts. These effects are generally short term in nature.

Some scientists claim that the long term side effects are Salvia Divinorum are quiet harmful for a human body and mind. According to reports and study by William A. Carlezon et al using ‘Forced-Swim tests’, the herb may have ‘Depressive like effects’. According to another research, if Salvia is used for a long frame of time then the herb may have strong physiological effects. However, the herb – Salvia Divinorum has very low potential as an addictive drug.

It is said that there are some short term side effects of Salvia Divinorum on a human body but there is no evidence of long term side effects. The research on this subject has been very limited and thereby the knowledge about the side effects of Salvia Divinorum is also very minimal.

Healing power of Salvia Divinorum

Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

Salvia has approximately 1000 species all over the world but Salvia Divinorum is considered the best vision including species. According to some scientists Salvia Divinorum has healing powers. Many research studies states that healing powers of Salvia Divinorum is very astonishing as it can help in curing a number of diseases.

The healing power of Salvia Divinorum is tremendous as it can be safely used under medical supervision. According to various medical researches, Salvia can be used to cure alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, depression, insomnia, stress, AIDS, digestion, cancer, chronic pain etc.

According to Thomas Prisinzano (University of Iowa) who is an assistant Professor of medicinal & natural products chemistry, healing power of Salvia Divinorum could be used to free a person from the addiction of cocaine. The reports states that “You can give a rat free access to cocaine, give them free access to Salvinorin A, and they stop taking cocaine.” Professor Bryan L Roth who is the Director at National Institute on Mental Health’s Psychoactive Drug Screening Program, supported Thomas Prisinzano and said, “We think that drugs derived from the active ingredient could be useful for a range of diseases: Alzheimer’s, depression, schizophrenia, chronic pain and even AIDS or HIV.”

Healing powers of Salvia Divinorum could also be measured by its traditional usage by Mazatech Indians who used it for providing relief from rheumatism, anemia and headache. The future of this herb seems to be very promising in the field of medicine. So if this herb won’t be classed as Schedule A type drug then the healing powers of Salvia Divinorum could create many medical histories.

Salvia Divinorum Plantation

Sunday, November 16th, 2008

Grown from:

Normally grow from seeds. But since seeds are not easily available everywhere other way of plantation is by using stem cuttings. One of the major challenges in stem cutting plantation is to determine the part which will go down into the soil. Therefore, Stem cuttings are selected carefully from a salvia plant. The stems that have new shoots are cut. The tip with new shoots will be up and the other side will be under soil. Another method to avoid this dilemma will be to place the step on soil sideways. Make the prominent shooting part point up and make the remaining two-third portion of stem wet with water including the soil.

When the new shoot starts growing, it’s the time for plantation in outdoor or indoor, depending upon your choice and available facility.

Growth environment:

This can be done in two ways:

  1. Indoor: This is normally achieved by creating humidity chambers and tents. Grows throughout the year because same environment can be maintained indoor. Since the salvia divinorum normally grows up to 3 meters in height, it is always advisable to plant the plants in considerably large vessel.
  1. Outdoor: May die out during fall and winter. If your outdoor environment is hot humid and damp only then it is advisable to do salvia plantation outdoors.

Soil requirement:

The soil must be kept damped. You need to be careful in doing so. Over watering can cause roots of rot.

Climatic requirement:

Salvia requires a hot and humid climatic to flourish. Salvia divinorum requires very little light. From 20-50% light exposure is enough for it’s proper growth. Recommended temperature is around 20 degree celcius.

Look after:

We can use nitrogen based fertilizers to help salvia divinorum growth. For root growth you can use potassium fertilizers. Use of fertilizers or urea can cause ammonia gas to produce, which is very dangerous gas for salvia divinorum. Proper ventilation is required to avoid accumulation of ammonia gas.

Uses of Salvia

Uses of Salvia

There are many different methods of using salvia which I am outlining below. I am not recommending any particular method for anyone. This is just a list of existing ways of salvia intake. One should do proper study and experiments before sticking to any intake method for healing purposes.

Administration of Salvia:

  1. Smoke
  2. Infusion
  3. Chewing
  4. Vaporization
  5. Swallow
  6. Sublingual

Smoke:

The most common method of salvia use is smoke. This is one of the recommended mode of taking salvia. But smoking over dosages can cause various kinds of side effects to individuals. The best procedure is to start smoking in small dosages. This way you will know your physical tolerance of salvia. If you follow this process then smoking gives the best healing effect. Smoking of salvia is only for healing purposes and not solely for smoking purposes.

Infusion:

In infusion, juices are extracted by rubbing the leaves together. This juice is then taken by mixing with water. However, this is not a recommended method of taking salvia since water dilutes the juice and lowers it’s strength.

Chewing:

In this method, leaves are rolled together and chewed. This is a good method of taking salvia but swallowing sometimes induces nausea. The main advantage is chewing is that the juice is directly absorbed by the blood stream and therefore the effect lasts longer then any other methods of intake.

Vaporization:

Taking salvia in a vaporized form is to make things simple for lungs. It should be taken in small dosages like in smoking.


Swallow:

Apart from traditional Mazatec drink, this is a less effective way of taking salvia.

Sublingual:

There are a few more effective oral intake method like tinctures/elixirs, soft extracts, and hard extracts. After intake, it starts showing it’s effects after 10-20 minutes. The quickly reaches the toppest level of effect and lasts from around 30 minutes to 2 hours. The whole process can last as long as 3 hours.
