The effects produced by Salvia divinorum, whether its the 60x standardized Salvia online or crumbled up leaves from your private SD tree, they are not comparable to the effects produced by other psychoactive substances.
Depending on your physical attributes, route of administration and strength of the Salvia divinorum that is used, the effects range from subtle to extremely strong.
My Salvia Online – The Personal Party Drug
Salvia can not be considered a party drug in any way.
People that are under the effects of Salvia usually have a very personal hallucinating experience.
While salvinorin A does activate opioid receptors in the brain, it’s important to draw a distinction between the mu-opioid receptor (activated by narcotics like heroin) and the kappa(1)-opioid receptor (activated by salvinorin A).
Drugs that work on the mu-opioid receptor cause sedation, pain-relief, and euphoria, but drugs that work on the kappa(1)-opioid receptor generally cause hallucinogenic, but often unpleasant (or even dysphoric) effects.
This explains why many people describe the Salvia experience as being unpleasant compared to the effects of the tryptamine psychedelics (such as psilocybine, DMT and LSD), which activate other receptors in the brain.
Each Individual May Experience Unique Effects
As with any mood altering chemical, individual response to this substance is as varied and unique as the people who enjoy it.
I personally don’t need much to feel the effects and I weigh in at 250 lbs, but I don’t really want much more from Salvia than to relax.
Others may want to go the way of Jim Morrison and ‘break on through to the other side’, I like this side just fine.
Some people report that the effects of Salvia became stronger after having used it a couple of times.
Some people appear to become more sensitive and will reach a higher level of effects after a couple of times.
I can’t stress enough just how different the effects can be for every individual that experiences this unique and pleasant (for me anyway) sensation.
Here are the stats on those who wasted their money; quite a large percentage of people (around 10%) are fairly insensitive to salvinorin A.
Many of them will reach effects at a higher dose, but a minority will still feel nothing, even at higher doses.
*VERY IMPORTANT* If you are a first time user, it is advised to use only a small dose to test your sensitivity, because the effects can sometimes be overwhelming.
*The rest of this is good advice but… c’mon, a sitter?
I got this information online from someone else so I’ll put it all in quotes.

Dave’s Humble Opinion
I don’t want to make light of how important safety is so please do consider the information above before smoking Salvia online or from anywhere else, but if you are going to worry about all those ‘what ifs’ and try to follow the rules of Salvia… then you shouldn’t be smoking weed in the first place… you fucking pansy.
Come on now, this is dope for Christ’s sake.
Dope for folks who can’t smoke dope anymore.
It’s not like it’s GOOD for you.
It makes you do stupid shit and say stupid shit, and laugh at shit that ain’t really that funny.
That’s why I smoked weed as a teenager all those years ago, now I get to do it again, legally!
I buy my Salvia online from TheBestSalvia.com and I get my smoking supplies from LegalBuds.com.
For real though, use your head.
If this stuff is too much for you or someone you know, quit doing it.
