What is Salvia?
Salvia divinorum is a Mexican plant, with leaves that contain psychoactive chemicals that produce hallucinations when chewed or when dried and smoked. Sold on the internet and in ‘headshops’ as ‘herbal ecstasy’, salvia is one of a number of substances marketed as ‘herbal highs’.
Salvia is sold in dried leaf form and costs on average £12 for 1oz. It is either chewed or smoked.
Salvia is available as a refined extract in different concentrations, ranging from ‘5x’ to ‘50x’. The costs range from £10 for ‘5x’ concentration to £40 for ‘50x’ concentration.
Although salvia has been around for hundreds of years, there has been very little research carried out into its effects. Depending on dosage, experiences can vary from the fairly mild to full blown with psychedelic hallucinations.

Salvia and the law
It is not against the law to possess products containing salvia but selling, supplying or advertising it for human consumption is illegal and sellers can be prosecuted under medicines legislation. For this reason most sellers will clearly state that their products are ‘not for human consumption’.
