The experiences described above are a representative sampling of both
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.
