This salvia tincture is a 13:1 solution of Salvia divinorum, alcohol and water. A 13:1 concentration means that 1 ml of this tincture equals 13 grams of (dried) salvia leaves. 50% of the tincture consists of alcohol, but this is not enough to cause an intoxicating effect. Using a tincture is an alternative to chewing leaves (quidding).
To be effective, the tincture has to be sprayed and held under the tongue. When the desired effect has been reached, or when half an hour has passed, you should swallow it or spit it out. To prevent a burning sensation from the added alcohol, dilute the preferred dose with a small amount of water. Note that there is not enough alcohol in the tincture to produce an intoxicating effect.
With a tincture the effects generally start sooner and take shorter than when quidding dried leaves. They begin after 10 to 15 minutes and quickly develop to a plateau that lasts 20 to 40 minutes. The effects then gradually diminish over an additional 30 minutes to an hour.
We highly recommend you to read the official User’s Guide on how to use salvia safely and effectively.
This dosing table is derived from the table created by the Reddit community of /r/Salvia. It is based on trip reports and information from various reliable sources. We highly recommend you to stick to this table, especially if you are a beginning user. It is easy to overdose with salvia, leading to negative and dysphoric experiences. If you find the initial dose to be too mild, you can increase it gradually.
For the 13:1 tincture, we recommend you to only use the number of sprays as a measure for dosing. The volume of the tincture is so small that it cannot be measured accurately in another way, unless you own very precise scientific equipment.
