Salvia Divinorum, a legal hallucinogen available at a number of head shops in the United States, is the subject of a great deal of speculation. I’ve read a lot of material boosting it as a “meditative aid,” but have also encountered parent groups telling readers of teenagers who’ve done all sorts of crazy things (climbing out of a car window and such) while on the drug. Responses to a diary entry expressed a variety of attitudes toward the drug, running from supportive to questioning to hostile.
Given all the contradictory information and attitudes out there, I decided to try the herb for myself. That’s just what I did last night, and I recorded the proceedings to share with you.
Click here for part one of the salvia divinorum podcast, in which I talk about conflicting salvia information, explain why I’m trying it myself, disclose how I got the herb and needed accessories, and discuss safe herbal exploration technique.
Part one of the salvia divinorum podcast lasts about 15 minutes, and runs to about 2M in file size.
Part two of the salvia divinorum podcast will contain audio of the actual trip, lasts about 50 minutes, and will be up later this morning right here at Irregular Times.
