Salvia Divinorum-botanical perspective

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

Salvia Divinorum is a rare plant used for many years by the Mazatec Indians. It was used for scientific purposes from the year 1950 and has science become the subject of botanical research. According to biologists Salvia Divinorum contains Salvinorin A which is one of the most potential natural hallucinogens. Scientists are also interested in the limited sexual re production and anthropogenic distribution properties of Salvia Divinorum.

Ethnobotanically, Salvia Divinorum is a 0.5 to 1 meters long perennial herb with flowers stalks which grows up to 2 to 3 meters. The translucent flowers stalks are slightly wrinkled and hollow with rough sides. The leaves of this plant are oval with smooth base and pointed tail. They are approximately 20 cm long and about 10 cm wide.

Talking about Salvia Divinorum’s botany, the herb produces seeds which are generally in very limited quality and they seldom germinate. The pollen fertility of this herb is quiet less for an unknown reason. Originally, active pollen tube inhibition is not present in the system but once the pollen reaches the ovary, it becomes aberrant. Often, partial sterility is suggested of a hybrid origin as it otherwise weakens the theory of hybrid origin which happens if indistinguishable plants are grown through seeds with the help of self pollination. Therefore, the plant is grown mainly by layering. Just like these facts, there are numerous other unknown facts attached to Salvia Diviroum.

Traditionally, Salvia Divinorum was quiet popular among people because of its spiritual qualities Because of its numerous applications and mysteries it has opened the doors for many research opportunities. And t is indeed possible that soon Salvia Divinorum may become a very important herb pharmacologically.
