Can I Grow these at home? The simple answer is Yes, but if you haven’t grown a plant before, you should read up on it Online and make sure you know what you’re doing before purchasing many different plants. It is best and recommended that start with one plants and then work your way up and collect the rest of the rare strains if you want. You can grow them using simple led lights or even CFL. The best lights that i found to work are in the 6000k spectrum which is like a cool white/blue tight. These plants will really reward you if you use these types of lights, because they provide the best light for fast growth. You can also use HPS lights, which will also work amazingly. But if you’re just starting out with a few plants, I would suggest to buy a few LED lights or CFL, because you can always add more lights in the future whenever your plants start growing huge.
Salvia divinorumWasson and Hofmann and/or Bunnellstrain Were
The original clones brought back to the United States and distributed around the world. The name Wasson and Hofmann was first applied to the strain in 1992 by the now-defunct ethnobotanical company (Of the jungle). They began listing it in their catalog as the ‘Wasson and Hofmann’ strain to differentiate it from another strain they introduced the same year, “Blosser” or “Palatable”strain. This clone was originally collected by Sterling Bunnell in 1962, not by Wasson or Hofmann.
Salvia divinorum “Blosser” or “Palatable“strain-
A clone which was collected by anthropologist Bret Blosser in December 1991 and sold by the now defunct …Of the Jungle Ethnobotanical company.
Salvia divinorum “Cerro Quemado” strain-
A descendant of a Salvia divinorum plant collected by L.J. Valdes,III, (the first person to isolate Salvinorin A, the active chemical in Salvia divinorum) near the village of Cerro Quemado, Mexico in the 1990s.
Luna Is A descendant of a Salvia divinorum plant growing under a Salvia divinorum cul. “Hofmann & Wasson” clone, found by Daniel Seibert in Hawaii in 1994. this is possibly a seedling or a sport (mutation). It has a slightly different leaf form (more rounded and the edges more serrated) than the other clones.
Salvia divinorum “Julieta” strain-
A strain collected by Daniel Siebert from a Mazatec shaman in Huautla de Jimenez (in the Sierra Mazateca, Mexico) in 1999.
Salvia divinorum “La Fuerza” (The Force) strain-

Salvia divinorum “Paradox“ strain-
A cutting from a seed-grown strain raised by Daniel Siebert in 1994. Salvia divinorum derived from seed grown plants is almost impossible to find and should contain valuable genetics.
Salvia divinorum “Resilience” strain-
A cutting from a seed-grown strain raised by Daniel Siebert in 2002. Salvia divinorum derived from seed grown plants is almost impossible to find and should contain valuable genetics.
If there are any strains that I’m missing, please feel free to leave me a message and i will add it to the list.
Turkish Mint seems to be one of the most sought after rare Entheogenic herbs. Lagochilus inebrians being in the Labiatae mint family, has strong intoxicating, sedative, and relaxing properties depending on dosage and potency of the strain.
The Strong intoxication is said to be cause by the alkaloid lagochiline. Lagochiline is a bitter diterpene that forms as a Grey crystalline solid.
Growing these plants can be tricky at times but if you follow directions and try to keep a close eye on your seedlings they will reach a good height and soon be able to develop into a much more hardy,care free plant/bush.
First off i would like to say there are a lot of people out there claiming lots of things about growing this plant from seed. Everyone tried to tell me you need to cold shock these seeds before they will be viable. I am not saying that is 100% false but no matter if you cold shock them or not there will still be viable seeds that will grow in to very nice bushy plants.
This is a Tested and Working Method
Step One, Before you plant the seeds you want to rinse them in the sink.
Retrieve a plastic drinking cup, place seeds into the cup and fill with warm water ( Not Hot ). Then Leave them in the water for 2-4 hours. This will give the seeds a bit of time to hydrate and gain there required moisture absorbtion to help there germination viablity.
Step Two, Use only small plastic cups to germinate the seeds in. Once you find the right size cup or flower pot you want to use then moisten the soil by putting it in a jar/container add water and mix well. Once mixed take a hand full of soil and squeeze it till only 1-2 drops of water come off of the soil.
That is a indication the moisture content is perfect for the seeds. I also want to also add just in case you might have some cacti soil i would use 25% cacti soil and 75% dirt to help with drainage. You dont want to use just soil when germinating unless the air in your house is over 50% humidity because it will dry the seeds out and they die once that happens.
Step Three, Once you have the soil in the cup/container plant the seed right in the middle of the pot. Depending on how many seeds you have i would recommend added 3 seeds per flower pot in the same hole. Unless the seeds have very good viability you would be lucky to get one plant to grow from one pot. Plant the seeds about half an inch from the top of the soil. do not compact the soil over the seed make sure it is loose. Once the seeds are in the dirt mist the top layer of the soil with a misting bottle. Get some plastic wrap and place it over the flower pot to hold in the moisture you can seal it with a rubber band or a string what ever you have that is handy.
The seedlings can start to show signs of life in 5-7 days but may take up to 3 weeks before all the seedlings will come up. Sometimes a few of the seeds do not absorb enough moisture and take a while longer to sprout.
Caring For Your Plant
Once It is over 2 weeks old, You will need to transplant the
seedling with out damaging the roots. Do not try to take the soil off the roots this will shock the seedling. When you transplant you want to use about 75% cacti soil in your soil mix. This was the plant will have enough drainage. Do not use a humidity dome. if your plant has problems drooping then adapt it to lower humidity by taking the plastic off for a few hours more a day till there is no need. Once the plant is about 3-5 inches tall it will start to use less and less water. With that said you have to Stop watering them at the same times you have been. I would say anywhere from 6-9 days apart from watering would be good. Just depending on The size on the plant. I do believe once the plants roots get bigger it holds in water because of it natural environment it doesn’t rain that often.
Here is the Video of the seedlings That I sprouted a while back. Also i wanted to add that in this video I go on saying the viability doesn’t last long. Again this is another tall tale because those seeds were near three years old only in my possession so may be even older. So from now on we are only going to go by facts, we will know there true from our own experiments.

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.
There has been some research for the medicinal value of Salvia Divinorum.
Salvia D. Is said to be good for Depression, Drug Addictions, Stress, Alzheimer’s, Schizophrenia and STD’s. We need more scientist to do a lot more research on this wonderful medicinal plants. Salvia Divinorum has been used for thousands of year and maybe even longer. It has been used for healing and curing for the entire time.
The mazatec indians of Mexico knew about these medicinal properties for ages. We are now just starting to do some testing and research but much more is needed. If the government would stop banning it for research. We may be able to get a rare chance to discover all the quality of this plant.
Help keep this plant alive and plentiful We do not want to loose this one.
