I have had in my possession some dried white sage (Salvia apiana) (this is not the more well known Salvia Divinorum) that I purchased from a local Native American store. It is commonly used as incense or smudging. I have found small amounts of information here and there regarding the smoking of the leaves of this plant, however have found that it is rather limited. I decided to try it out.
Two small bowls were smoked in a bong over the course of fifteen minutes, each hit was held in for five to ten seconds. The taste was pleasant, and the smoke seemed less harsh than cannabis.
After roughly 3 to 5 minutes the following effects began to take effect and were noted:
- Relaxation and thought suppression
- Increased visual snow and some light streaking
- Slight tingling of the skin
- Slight lung constriction
The effects lasted for about 30 minutes and trailed off for the following 15. (Apart from lung restriction which maybe lasted for another 15 minutes)
No significant change in mood was experienced although a positive and relaxed mood was assumed beforehand. The effects were subtle and very well could have been placebo although made for a relaxed and enjoyable night.
