Glad to know it is finally being studied scientifically. Not the most detailed study but I am sure there are more to come.
yeah, I agree. I found it interesting that salvia acts on the "pain" sensors...very interesting.
i have my own theory about the psychological effects painkillers can have, maybe salvia's effect on the pain receptors may enable your brain the freedom to respond to other effects

the thoughts of my post 30 min ago ran through my mind a couple times and i decided that the theory i was referring to leads toward Buddhist principals so nevermind
hahaha, I saw your post and decided not to reply, but I have to reply to this one...
I think that the modulation of the pain receptors leads to the unpleasant effects that many salvia users experience (As stated in the article)...there was always something interesting about a Salvia Trip...SWIM remembers this one time he was riding Yoshi through Mario World
