Salvia Divinorum

What is Salvia? Everyone wants to know what is this plant, how it is used, where it is from etc. It is a psychoactive plant which can be used for the potent producer of "visions" and other hallucinatory experiences. It is also used remedially at lower dosages as a diuretic, and to treat ailments including diarrhea, anemia, headaches, rheumatism, and a semi-magical disease known as panzón de borrego, or a swollen belly. The plant is from Oaxaca Mexico growing in shady and moist locations within cloud forest. The plant grows to over a meter high and has hollow square stems, large leaves, and occasional white flowers with violet. Salvia divinorum has become both increasingly well-known and available in modern culture. The Internet has allowed for the growth of many businesses selling live salvia plants, dried leaves, extracts, and other preparations. The plant divinorum produces few viable seeds even when it does flower no seeds have ever been observed on plants in the wild. Salvia divinorum was first documented in 1939, but it was many years before botanists could identify the plant due to Mazatec secrecy about the growing sites...
