Beginner’s Guide To Smoking & Growing Salvia Divinorum

Perhaps you’ve heard of Salvia Divinorum, that thing you always see in bong tobacco-product shops but never wanted to try out. Or you might just be trying to follow in Miley’s footsteps (although if you believe that myth, you might have just smoked a bowl of it yourself). This plant, native to Mexico, is on a whole other tip than marijuana, though. Unlike cannabis, Salvia remains legal for growth in the majority of the United States!

Salvia’s effects are a lot different than marijuana’s:

  • After having blazed (even if you’re at a level 9-10 on the “highness” scale) you won’t have any visions other than those of you slowly walking to the fridge for that triple-meat pizza.
  • Salvia is used for shamanic purposes, and its desirability varies in people; some love it, some hate it. Some have giggle fits, others have fits of madness. The choice is (sometimes) yours, depending on where your mind is at.
  • Make no mistake though, the only similarity this has with marijuana is that you smoke it. It will f*ck your sh*t up… For about four minutes, and then you’re back to normal.

A few quick words about smoking it:

  • Don’t bother putting this stuff in papers (i.e. blunts, joints, spliffs, etc.) as it needs a constant flame.
  • The vaporization point of Divinorum is much higher than THC’s.
  • Use either or a bong or a glass pipe and light it with a torch lighter.
  • If you can’t get your paws on a butane torch, you’re going to have to keep applying a Bic lighter’s flame to it as you inhale.
  • Finally, make sure to keep the smoke in for at least 20 seconds. Once you feel a slight pressure on your forehead, you’re off.


Obtaining Salvia extract is fairly simple; there are plenty of sites on the internet where you can purchase it. Also, the aforementioned head shops are a good start.

Buying Salvia is a cop-out, though. Why not cultivate your own experience by growing your very own plant?

Caring for Salvia requires a little more than a simple homegrown cannabis plant, though

  • In addition to daily watering, mist the plant and its leaves with a spray bottle of water on a daily basis.
  • Construct a humidifying cover around the plant by placing 3-4 sticks upright in the soil then wrapping cellophane around the container and the plant itself. Make sure openings in the plastic wrap are reduced to a minimum so as to hold the moisture in for the Salvia.

You can harvest your Salvia plant after a few months of letting it grow. May your shamanism grow along with your plant!
