    I have done alot of reading on ibogaine and it's uses for curing opiate addiction.Salvia sounds very powerful,powerful in the way iboga sounds powerful.Would it be possible salvia could be useful for one trying to cure themselves of opiate use?Has anyone actually tried using salvia for this?

    Research has shown that it is useful for that from what I remember.

    Really?I have never heard of or read research to that effect,not saying it doesn't exist.However it doesn't seem like a bad thing to research.

    That's more along the lines of (educated) speculation than research. I think a much more focused study would have to be done before there would be any concrete reason to believe that salvia would be useful for opate addicton. As far as it being useful for addiction along the same lines as ibogaine the two experiences, while both powerful, do not strike me as very similar and don't work on the brain in the same way.

    Real time experince of swip's girl has shown that not only does small doses of salvia help with opiate withdrawls but also for immidiate pain reduction
