Thursday, December 4th, 2008

Salvia Divinorum is a member of sage family and is known to produce psychoactive effects. Salvia is a legal hallucinogen drug unlike other drugs available in the market (like Cocaine, Marijuana or Math). Due to ever expanding high demand among teenagers, Salvia: the legal hallucinogen is now also been sold over the internet. The herb is often compared to LSD by some politicians and researchers.

Traditionally, Shamans have been using Salvia for centuries to facilitate visions during spiritual sessions. However, the western world got to know about the rare herb only in 1950s. The leaves of the herb could be smoked or chewed in order to experience the sensations produced by the plant. Salvia’s sensations (or often referred as side effects) can only be experienced for minutes or hours (depending on the dose). This very fact forced the government to legalize the plant. Salvia: the legal hallucinogen has been a concern for parents and citizens as the researchers are still trying to find the herb’s long term effects.

A very concerning issue attached to Salvia: the legal hallucinogen is the fact that not much knowledge is available on the drug. It is the users who feel that there are no side effects attached to the herb. According to them, the drug doesn’t have a coming down period unlike other drugs. But the very fact doesn’t make the drug safe. It has been noticed that the concentrated extracts can produce intense results. Moreover, there have been other negative reports also affixed with Salvia: the legal hallucinogen.

Although the information related to Salvia - the legal hallucinogen is quiet constrained but this doesn’t stop people to venture the drug and taste its pleasures.
