Salvia leaves are the best option for those who are looking to use them in the “cold way” by making tea or chewing them in the ancient tradition. To make Salvia tea, just add leaves to boiling water and boil them for 2-3 minutes. Sieve the tea and add milk and honey for taste. Wait for the tea to cool off enough so you can drink the whole amount quite fast. Settle in the place you are planning to trip and drink the whole thing.
In the upcoming 20 minutes, you will start feeling… Well more like stoned. These are the pre-threshold effects and you will feel giggly, talkative, and relaxed. If your brew was strong enough – this will start to fade away as you start going into a full psychedelic experience with “body-morphing”, ego loss, environment and reality distortions, and much much more. If this is what you are looking for, we recommend checking our extracts that will allow you to reach this state with just one inhale.
Salvia’s experience is also known to be “in your face” – as salvia doesn’t increase serotonin levels in your brain (like all other psychedelics do), which makes Salvia a completely unique, atypical psychedelic experience like no other. In very high dosages (intoxication levels) imagine Salvia’s experience to be a combination of your best dream and worst nightmare – just thrown in your face.
So for these reasons (no increase in euphoria and uniquely strong dissolution) combined with incredibly fast activation time (a couple of seconds) – it is very very very important to treat your first ever salvia experience with respect and start with as little a dose as possible. You can always up the dose next time!
