    Ive been searching for a gradual way of taking salvia. The oral tincture was a waste of time. I was wondering how I read that the indians would chew the salvia leaves to abtain the desired effect.


    Well has anyone tried chewing/sucking on salvia extract and achieved a effect ??? If not im gonna try putting almost a gram of 15x salvia extract into my mouth for some time...leftover because I do not like smoking the stuff. I regret it every time.

    Ok I could bring myself to chew on the nasty shit. And the discouraging buzz I received from smoking turned me off and its still sitting in my drawer

    Well I chewed a gram of 5x extract and it didn't do anything. Chewing seems to be a waste of extract, but if you hate smoking it, you should eventually try it when you can get yourself to do so. (im assuming you ment you couldn't bring yourself to chew it?) You should be able to get effect from 15x extract. When and if you get around to it please post a report.

    use a friggin' waterbong!

    for christs sake.. its only 1 hit you need, whereas a
    weed joint you're smoking like 25 times. Chewing
    does nothing for extracts

    I need definitely more than 1 hit. I have to smoke a whole gram of 10x
    extract for it to effect me, and I have to be bloody quick about it,
    basically holding lungfulls of it in for 40 seconds then going for
    another without a break. But when it hits, it hits[​IMG]

    I chewed half a gram of the 5x extract but it didnt do anything , major waste.

    dont try it it doesnt work.

    I tried it again by boiling half a gram of the 5x extract in 2 tablespoons of water and holding it in my mouth , again i got nothing.

    I personally prefer chewing quid over smoking. It is a longer, more mellow experience. Unfortunatly salvia is extremely bitter.

    My Salvia experiences have all been with either a tincture or a quid with fresh leaves.



    A big advantage for me with the tincture was that I could precisely control the dose.



    With high doses I went and came back with little or nothing in the way of experience -- sort of a waste.



    I had heard that low doses were great for both sex and meditation;
    however, with low does I was simply annoyed and uncomfortable.
    While I could function sexually -- surprising given my mood -- there
    was no pleasure in it. The physical contact, consistent with
    everything else, was simply annoying.



    Sort of like Goldilocks, a moderage dosage was awesome and took me to
    some amazing places. At a moderage dose, Salvia is one of my
    favourites.



    A quid had the extra complexity of all the leaves in the mouth.
    While I have had good experiences with it, it is much less predictable
    for me than the tincture.



    I found Daniel Siebert's "The Salvia divinorum User's Guide" to be
    helful when I was first becoming acquainted with Salvia --

    Would not suggest chewing extract; waste of money. Get some
    leaves of decent potency, soak them in warm water, and chew away.
    Brush your mouth out with minty toothpaste first; enhances
    absorption. You might add a little Peppermint Schnapps to the
    chewed mixture.



    Effective, "slower" than smoking and therefore more conducive to calm
    visualization and contemplation. I've had some very emotional and
    satisfying experiences this way, but the chewing and all that plant
    material is REALLY distracting. Salvia gives weird body
    distortions anyway, so chewing can feel like your jaw is ten feet long,
    and your saliva is a lake swishing back and forth, etc. (think of when
    you get something caught in your teeth and it feels huge even when
    sober ....). And it does taste pretty awful. I guess the
    key is to get the salvinorin into your bloodstream, spit and
    enjoy. You just have to get over the hurdle of the incredible
    distraction of all that plant matter in your mouth.

    Chewing even leaves is waste of good stuff.
