Salvinorin: The Psychedelic Essence of Salvia Divinorum
by D.M. Turner
The experiences described above are a representative sampling of both my own and other's encounters with Salvia divinorum. I consider these to be the most diverse and inexplicable of any of my psychedelic adventures. Although I've now used Salvinorin over 30 times it still has the ability to feel completely novel, fresh, and unpredictable with each use. The results reported by the small group who have tried this mysterious substance show a wide and diverse range of effects and experiences, and suggest a greater potential for both dangers and revelatory insights than exists with other entheogens. Many have found the experience of pure Salvinorin A to be alarmingly intense, and feel working with the whole plant material to be safer and more assimilable. Salvia divinorum appears to be a plant in possession of a vast treasury of knowledge and experience. which is just beginning to make acquaintance with and be noticed by humans. Those who have connected with her sublime and fantastic realm feel Salvia divinorum has something very precious to offer us.
