    how much of 10x should someone take for their first time with salvia,
    and do we really need a torch lighter to feel the full effects? we
    could use either a bong or a really large bubbler, which would be
    better?

    10x is very strong assuming it's pure, and one-tenth of a teaspoon is a
    good starting point. (5x is easier to work with, but since 10x is
    readily available and cheap in bulk, I just crush it and mix with an
    equal amount of unenhanced leaf. Then I use one-fifth of a
    teaspoon of that "5x" in a small pipe.) Sorry I can't tell you the mass of
    that amount. (EDIT: see two posts below; I checked it.)



    I've found that steady application of a flame from a lighter into the
    pipe works just fine. A torch lighter might be more
    efficient. A bong might be less efficient (cooling and
    precipitating the vaporized salvinorin).



    Be forewarned that it's really weird and unlike any other drug, and
    take the published reports seriously. Best of luck for a rich and
    rewarding experience, and please always use a sitter for smoking
    extracts!

    OK --- here is the deal. Salvinorin A, the active ingredient, is
    active at 200- 500 mcg (0.2 - 0.5 mg) when vaporized in pure
    form. Using a regular butane lighter, the process is probably
    less efficient. I'm of about average sensitivity to salvia, and I
    find that smoking an amount of extract that is roughly equivalent to 1.0 mg of
    salvinorin does the trick.



    Doing the math:



    "10x" generally contains 25 mg salvinorin / g of plant material.



    100 mg of "10x" contains 2.5 mg of active ingredient.



    100 mg of "10x" extract (of good quality, dry and not tarry), crushed
    to fine flakes in your fingertips, fits almost exactly in a
    little 1 mL (1/5 teaspoon) scoop.



    So I just use a little under half of one of those scoops of 10x, which would be about 40 mg if you have a scale.



    Now that you're in the ballpark, you can see at what level it's active
    for you and figure out an easy volumetric method so you don't have to
    mess with the scale every time.



    Good luck!

    does anyone know how many trips could be obtained from a half gram of 6x extract?

    1 Big hit with 10X Extract should be enough

    6x extract should contain 15 mg salvinorin / g. So half a gram is
    equivalent to 7.5 mg = about 7 or 8 experiences .... in my experience
    (regular butane lighter held over bowl of a pipe). As mentioned
    elsewhere, I don't think smoking is as efficient as vaporizing
    salvinorin (which is active at 0.2 -0.5 mg), but it's also more
    predictable, far easier and safer.



    Better deal to buy the "bulk nonstandardized 10x" and mix well with an equal amount of regular unenhanced leaf.

    I don't find a butane torch necessary. Last time I smoked some
    salvia I just used a bong and a regular bic, holding the bic to the
    bowl. The salvia was 20x and I packed a tiny bowl, maybe like
    1/15 of a gram. That was plenty.
