    couldent you just dry a leaf out and smoke that? would that still get you the high you are looking for or do you need to extract from the leaf?

    If you get the technique down pat a good quality leaf is very effective. Although like fnord said 5-10x is probably better and also the best all around--it isn't as easy to take in too much as say a 40x.

    If your going to use leaves I would suggest making a quid. Making a quid can be a very interesting experience if done right, much different than a regular (smoked) Salvia experience. Besides that it's pretty pointless to smoke the leaves since you will need to smoke a whole bunch to begin to feel effects, therefore the extracts are advised.

    Q. What is the quid method?
    A. A quid is a rolled up cylinder of fresh leaves. The quid method traditionally uses fresh Salvia leaves, large ones if available. Rehydrated previously dried leaves can be used if fresh ones are unavailable; there seems to be little loss of strength due to drying and rehydration. The quid method brings about a fine trip that lasts somewhat longer than a smoking trip does. Unlike smoking, the quid method does not damage lungs. Unfortunately the quid method does not work for everyone. And some find the quid method to be unpleasant due to the bitterness of the leaves.
