One drug that is on the rise among teens and young adults is salvia. If you’ve never heard of salvia, it is a natural plant that originates from the sage family. It is being used by young people to obtain a very quick, but also very short high.
The effects usually begin within one minute of using, and it lasts anywhere from five to ten minutes. The plant can be ingested or inhaled. The leaves can be smoked or vaporized, so there are options to using this drug.
Salvia is legal in most countries, and it is mostly legal in the United States. In some states, such as California, it is legal with an age restriction on it. While the long-term health concerns are unknown, there are some immediate health concerns when using.
One of the most problematic problems is when people begin to come down from their high, some people undergo seizure-like thrashing about their bodies. This can be harmful to yourself and those around you. It is important to be aware of the side effects before using.
Side effects aren’t too bad and include things such as dizziness, chills, slurred speech, loss of coordination, and others. While it does produce a high, its side effects do have potential to be dangerous. Always be careful when dealing with this plant.
