Saliva Divinorum
The active compounds of Salvia Divinorum are Salvinorin A and Salvinorin B. The main compound Salvinorin A is at the moment the strongest isolated hallucinogenic substance known.
You cannot compare Salvia with other hallucinogenic plants like magic mushrooms and cacti, is has it's own unique effect. Salvia causes only a short trip, if smoked 10 to 15 minutes, and with oral use 20 minutes to 1 hour. After this you're quickly getting back to reality.
During the trip several states can occur: 2 dimensional hallucinations, mind-body experiences, becoming a object, traveling back in time, being in more places at once and (yes!) uncontrolled laughing
Salvia is not dangerous or addictive, but it is not a party drug! So use it in a quiet and intimate environment so the salvia can show it's full advantage. Most people do not feel unpleasantly hangover after using Salvia. A few people do report a mild headache, bronchial irritation, insomnia or irritability. These symptoms seem to be reported more often by smokers than by quid chewers, and perhaps might be due to some combustion products, such as carbon monoxide rather than to Salvinorin

The S-A-L-V-I-A trip scale shows 6 trip stages:
Level -1 "S stands for SUBTLE effects." A feeling that 'something' is happening, although it is difficulty to say just what. Relaxation and increased sensual appreciation may be noted. This mild level is useful for meditation and may facilitate sexual pleasure.

Level - 2 "A stands for ALTERED perception." Colors and textures are paid attention to. Appreciation of music may be enhanced. Space may appear of greater or lesser depth than is usual. But visions do not occur at this level. Thinking becomes less logical, and more playful; short term memory difficulties are may be noted.

Level - 3 "L" stands for LIGHT visionary state." Closed eye visuals (clear imagery with eyes closed: fractal patterns, vine like and geometric patterns, visions of objects and designs). The imagery is often two dimensional. If open eyed visual effects occur these are usually vague and fleeting. At this level phenomena similar to the hypnologic phenomena that some people experience at sleep onset occur. At this level visions are experienced as 'eye candy' but are not confused with reality.

Level - 4 "V stands for VIVID visionary state." Complex three dimensional realistic appearing scenes occur. Sometimes voices may be heard. With eyes open contact with consensual reality will not be entirely lost, but when you close your eyes you may forget about consensus reality and enter completely into a dreamlike scene.
Shamanistic journeying to other lands, foreign or imaginary; encounters with beings, entities, spirits; or travels to other ages may occur. You may even live the life of another person. At this level you have entered the shaman's world. Or if you prefer you are in ''dream time'. With eyes closed you experience fantasies (dream like happenings, with a story line to them). So long as your eyes are closed you may believe they are really occurring. This differs from the 'eye candy' closed eye imagery, of level 3.

Level - 5 "I" stands for IMMATERIAL existence." At this level consciousness remains and some though
processes are still lucid, but one becomes completely involved in inner experience and looses all contact with consensual reality. Individuality may be lost; one experiences merging with God/dess, mind, universal consciousness, or bizarre fusion's with other objects real or imagined, e.g. merging with a wall may be experienced. At this level it is impossible to function in consensual reality, but unfortunately some people do not remain still but move around in this befuddled state. For this reason a sitter is essential to ensure the safety of someone voyaging to the inner levels. To the person experiencing this, the phenomenon may be terrifying or exceedingly pleasant; but to an outside observer the individual may appear confused or disoriented.

Level 6 - "A stands for AMNESIC effects " At this stage either consciousness is lost; or at least one is unable to later recall what one is experiencing. The individual may fall, or remain immobile or thrash around; somnambulistic behavior may occur; injuries can be sustained without pain being felt; on awakening the individual will have no recollection of what he/she did, experienced or said in level 6. People cannot ever recall what they experience in this very deep trance state. This is not a sought after level as later nothing can be recalled of the experience.

How can I used saliva?
.The dosage required to obtain first effects from salvia varies widely. Some people report strong effects the first time they smoke the dried leaf in a pipe, others report no effects after smoking large quantities of concentrated extract.

A common method is to smoke the dried leaf through a bong or waterpipe -- several bowls as quickly as possible. If this doesn't work, or the thought of it insults your lungs, standardized 5x (or stronger) extract can be used. Once a breakthrough is achieved, subsequent use may require less material.

Smoked salvia trips can be extremely intense -- comparable to DMT -- and it is wise to have a sober sitter present. This is not a "recreational" substance.
Another way to used saliva
10-20 large leaves, or an equivalent quantity of extract.

Either fresh or dried leaves may be used. Dried leaves are reportedly less bitter; they must be rehydrated by soaking in water.

A quid is rolled and held in the mouth for about half an hour. The effects manifest much more gradually and last longer, about half an hour.

There are also other preparations, such as ethanol-based extracts or honey slurry.
Some history on saliva
This cultivated Mexican mint species has a long history of use by the Mazatecs.

Most users agree Salvia divinorum is quite unique, and some find its effects unsettling. Its active principle, salvinorin A, is structurally unique among psychoactive drugs, and receptor binding studies have revealed nothing, which could indicate a previously unknown pathway in the brain.

The plant is native to Mexico. It is known only in cultivation, and it rarely produces seed, suggesting a chance unstable hybrid, although the genetics have not yet been investigated. Salvia divinorum is traditionally used for, among other things, divination-- hence its scientific name.
Botanical Suffix- Epling et Játiva-M.
Habitat Native to the Sierra Mazateca, Mexico. The tiny number of clones in circulation have adapted well to cultivation by enthusiasts in cooler, drier climates throughout the world.
