What it is: Salvia divinorum is a psychoactive species in the genus Salvia. It is a member of the mint family and is native to southern Mexico. Historically, several Native American cultures have used the plant's leaves, which contain the psychoactive ingredient salvinorin, as a hallucinogen by smoking them during rituals.
Method of consumption: Smoked
Effects: Depending on the potency of the particular sample, salvia delivers a fast-acting hallucinogenic experience for approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
Warnings: A disclaimer notice at the site states that its products are "not intended for human consumption." The product ships with a label stating "for incense use only." John Qaqundah, a practicing hospital pharmacist and assistant clinical professor with the School of Pharmacy at the University of California-San Francisco, says that use of salvia can produce temporary sensory or perceptual impairment, potentially increasing the user's risk of falling over or otherwise incurring injury.
