I have always felt the effect of Salvia Divinorum to come on to fast for me. I am sure others feel the same way. Once i tried the quid method I knew from that point on, that this is the preferred method.
Smoking it feels like your being blasted into outer space with no time to think about it. So fast at times you don’t realize your there already.
As you may know the Mazatec Indians of Mexico Have been using the quid method for hundreds of years. I also hear of a method where they will take fresh leaves and grind them over a screen cloth, collect the juices into a wooden bowl. After juicing the leaves they would ingest the juices as a tea.
If you have tried the quid method you would know that the juices from the leaves being in your mouth turn to dark green that when you spit it out, it looks like green leaf slime.
The taste was never that bad in my opinion. I thought that it had a slight bitter taste. Some say it is different depending on the strain that your working with.
This strain I have a cutting of now is a Blosser strain. This strain has tons of tiny white hairs all over the surface of the leaves. The strain I used to grow, aka the one i used for the quid didn’t have any or very little hairs. So I know that there is a lot of things that come into play when experimenting with the different types of strains.
You may also use dried Leaves for the quid method. You would have to take the dried leaves and hydrate them in some cool water. I would suggest using bottled water because its a lot cleaner with no chlorine.

I am posting this information for people interested in the effects Salvia Divinorum using the quid method.
With my curiousity running wild I happend to come across 15 pairs of Freshly picked Salvia Divinorum leaves. Most of the leaves where about medium to large in size, with a few smaller leaves as well. I ran a bit of water over them to make sure they were clean.
I then counted out about 15 leaves. I rolled the leaves till they resembled a tube. I took the roll of leaves and started to bite small amounts off and chew it up. After i had both cheeks full of leaves I decided to keep chewing ever so often while holding in the green juices.
After around 10-15 minutes I started to nnotice the effects of the leaves. It came on slow with a very nice warm feeling that over took my body. At about the 20 minute mark I shood up and walked around a bit. I noticed by walking around I felt and looked as if i were in a drunken state. I had trouble keeping my balance.
My thoughts started to race. I was thinking up a storm of ideas about things I thought about earlier in the day. I began to wonder what another quid would added to the effect.
I then began to roll up the other 15 leaves. I started chewing off small bites again. Once my mouth was full i couldn’t manage to fit another bite. I was then affraid i couldn’t hold it all in. I started chewing the leaves while my mouth felt as if it was full of the green juices from the leaves.
Around 15 minutes I started to feel like I wanted to relax and lay in bed. I tried to set up for as long as I could. After around 5-10 more minutes i decided I was where i wanted to be. I then spit the rest of the quid outside. The spit was very green and a bit slimmy. I would try to avoid getting it on your clothes because I would imagin it would stain.
I felt as if I were in a dream or atleast a very dreamy state of mind. I felt that I could think about anything with great ease and imagin the outcome of a situation in my head before I really examined the possibility’s.
I knew that if I would of done one more quid or held the last one a while longer I might have went for full blown Spiritual Journey. I thought to myself there is always next time. This time was just a test to see how extreme the experience would get. I didnt want to use to much on the first time.

Any Comments Are Welcome.
Salvia Divinorum can be useful for deep meditation. If your interested in releaving stress due to a bad job or anything in life that leaves one with a lot of stress. This is a very good practice.
I would recommend starting at a low dose and working your way up. The preferred method by most people that want to get the most out of the experience would be to chew the fresh or hydrated leaves.
If you are using dried leaves you would want to place them in some warm water for about 30-50 minutes. Leave them submerged in the water till the leaves hold a good bit of water.
After you leaves are hydrated you could shake most of the water off and add honey to make the taste a bit better.
For some people they need to add honey others don’t mind the taste. Depending on what strain of Salvia Divinorum your using the bitter taste might vary from batch to batch or strain to strain.
I would recommend leaving the leaves in your mouth while chewing them every so often for around 15-30 minutes. Depending on how intense you want the effects to be.
If a powerful effect is needed then keep taking the old leaves out and adding new ones. Hold the juices then spit them all out when the desired effects are archived
Let me know what you think
