One type, salvia divinorum, has a substance called salvinorin A that can cause intense psychedelic experiences.</p> <p>Salvinorin A affects structures in the brain called opioid receptors. This makes salvia different from other hallucinogenic drugs like LSD and mushrooms, which affect the brain's levels of a chemical called serotonin.&nbsp;</p> <h3>Sometimes Called:</h3> <p>diviner's sage, magic mint, maria pastora, sally-d, seer's sage, and shepherdess's herb</p> <h3>How It's Used:</h3> <p>As a drug, salvia usually comes as fresh green plant leaves or dried shredded green leaves. Salvia can also be a liquid extract. Traditionally, users chewed the fresh salvia leaves or drank the extract, but now people also smoke the dried leaves.</p> <h3>What It Does:</h3> <p>Salvia's effects come on quickly, sometimes in less than a minute. They usually disappear about 30 minutes to an hour later. Salvia's effects on the mind can range from mild to intense. They may be frightening, depending on how strong a dose of the drug someone takes.</p> <p>Common short-term effects include:</p> <ul> <li>hallucinations and changes in visual perception</li> <li>uncontrolled laughter</li> <li>mood and emotional swings</li> <li>difficulty concentrating</li> <li>a sense of detachment from self and reality (not being able to tell the difference between what's real and what's imagined)</li> <li>dizziness and lightheadedness</li> <li>lack of coordination</li> <li>slurred speech</li> </ul> <p>Some studies suggest that, over time, salvia use may contribute to a condition called dysphoria that is characterized by feelings of depression, discontent, and restlessness.</p> <p>Smoking any substance over a long period of time, including salvia, can lead to breathing trouble and other health problems.</p> <p>The biggest problem with salvia is that it has such dramatic psychological effects. Because the drug can impair a user's coordination and reality so much, people under the influence of salvia can be a real danger to themselves. There is a substantial risk of injury or accidental death to salvia users.</p> <p>Salvia is illegal in a number of foreign countries and in many American states. Possession or use of salvia in states where it is illegal is punishable by fines and jail time.</p>SalviaHay muchos tipos de plantas de salvia.
