Fresh Salvia? Strains?
    #2576889 - 04/19/04 08:23 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Aight. Some greenthumb friends of mine have some salvia growing. They wants to knows a few things.

In what form can salvia be best enjoyed? Can it be used fresh?

They've grown several varities so they say, but don't know which was divorinum. How can I tell if what they have is divorinium? I think it had yellow and white flowers. Not certain. The day was a daize. Peace.

Most salvia that you can buy at any gardening store/target walmart or stores of the like in seedling packets will grow tall purpleish flowers. it is not active. your going to almost have to buy divinorium of the net.. i think... but yes anyways shouldnt this be in the gardening forum?

Yeah, the term Salvia refers to the genus, and there are a lot of Salvias out there.

To give you an idea: http://plantsdatabase.com/b/Lamiaceae/Salvia/

Salvia is fairly easy to grow, for the most part. I think the main reason why someone would want fresh salvia is simply if you're using it as a quid (chewing it and not swallowing the juice). Probably much easier to use. Otherwise, 5x always does the trick for me.

The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

Oh, and as far as the best method to use salvia, it's all going to depend on your preference. The most direct and easiest method is simply smoking 5x (best bet for beginers). I've never had much luck using it as a quid or smoking plain leaf, but there are reports of it being very nice.


I'd grow it myself if I had the time & money. I think there is a rewarding feeling from using something from a plant you grew yourself.

most likely if it's flowering it's not divinorum.....divinorum rarely flowers from what I understand, but when it does they're wispy white flowers....

edit: also 5x means it's got the salvinorin content of 5 leaves on one leaf.....it's done by a simple alcohol extraction....10x is ten leaves worth on one leaf and so forth.....

I've grown salvia for a year now, and I never tried the extracts yet, but the most effective for me was the quid, even though it was hard to bare, had the visuals and such, perhaps not as intense as they could have been, but none the less nice.
