How do you use salvia correctly if you don’t have a bong? Salvia divinorum, also known as diviner’s Sage, Magic Mint, or Sage of the Seers is a powerful psychoactive plant, a member of the sage genus. The plant is found in Oaxaca, Mexico. The Latin name Salvia divinorum literally translates to “sage of the seers”. The genus name Salvia is derived from the Latin salvare, meaning “to heal” or “to save”. It has been made known that if Salvia divinorum is used or ingested correctly in the right way, salvia will be a powerful tool for meditation and a source of greater enlightenment. It can also provide a profound state of awareness that can be helpful in meditation and self-reflection and it makes it possible for the user to see visions. The following are approved ways of ingesting and use salvia correctly;
The Mazatec Method
Traditionally, the Mazatec people, indigenous to the Oaxaca region of Mexico where Salvia divinorum was first found. It is believed they used to grind up large quantities of Salvia divinorum leaf, which was then added to water and drank. Its known that salvinorin-a, the active chemical in Salvia divinorum- salvinorin-A is not very readily absorbed through the stomach, so large quantities of the leaf must be used.
Smoking salvia leaf can be effective, salvinorin-A requires a high temperature to vaporize, so the leaf should be smoked through a pipe. When smoking the leaf through a pipe, you should try and use a torch lighter if possible. The extra heat generated by the torch flame will vaporize more of the salvinorin-A per hit compared with a regular lighter.
Salvia divinorum extracts are quite simply salvia leaf with a lot more kick. Extracts are prepared by taking the salvinorin from a large number of leaves. You then deposit it back onto a much smaller quantity of leaf. The method ensures you get enough salvinorin-A into your body as soon as possible. It opens up the deeper levels of the salvia experience. Unfortunately, due to the strength of some extracts, it can be hard to accurately measure out a correct dose. So, you could end up taking in far more than you intended. The extract should also be smoked in a pipe.

Use Salvia Correctly With The Quid Method
A “quid” is basically a big wad of leaves. Fresh leaves, if possible, but dry leaves can be used too. If the leaves are dry, immerse them in a cup of warm water for about a minute before you wish to begin – this step is essential, otherwise you’ll be chewing on the dry leaf, which will taste just plain disgusting. Take about ten to fifteen fresh or soaked leaves, roll them up into a ball, and pop the ball, or quid, into your mouth. Now all you have to do is chew those awful-tasting leaves for a good fifteen to thirty minutes. Sounds easy? Well, you have to do it by swallowing as little saliva as possible. Just like the Mazatec method, the effects last longer than smoking.
Salvinorin tincture works in the same way as the quid method: sublingual absorption. That is, you let the liquid sit in your mouth for 15 to 30 minutes. You then allow the salvinorin-A to diffuse into your blood through your mouth. The tincture itself is an alcohol-based solution of salvinorin-A, meaning doses can be measured more accurately. You only need to dilute it, and it doesn’t taste nearly as bad. The effects are also brought about much faster if you use salvia correctly.
If you have a stable mindset and think you can handle being out of control of your body, then you should try some Salvia Divinorum. It is cheap and mostly legal, so there really is no downside. Just make sure that you have someone with you to watch over you. Salvia Divinorum is not really a “fun” high, and it is completely non-addictive. So, go out to your local head shop and pick some up or you can order it online since it is legal!
