    This is one of those random ideas we all have:



    Since Salvinorin A vaporizes at a higher temperature than plant
    material, would it be possible to pack a bowl, then light just a bit
    with a normal lighter and have the ember thoroughly burn through the
    plant material, then hitting the ashes with a torch lighter to vaporize
    the salvinorin a still present in the ash without the irritating smoke
    caused by the combustion of the plant material.

    This actually kinda makes sense in theory. I might try it out.

    I think heat can destroy the salvornium but you need a higher temp to activate, i think

    Anybody try it yet? I don't really have access to salvia anymore
    or I would, and I'm really curious whether this'd work or not.

    Tried it. It works well, however its hard to pull off. It
    took me three times to get it to work. I believe that some of the
    Salvinorin-A is destroyed or in the smoke of the lower temperature
    lighter.
