Smoking Salvia Divinorum In A Bong
Be aware: many doctors say that Salvia Divinorum is not harmful to your health, but during a trip you run the risk of losing control over your mind and body and therefore hurting yourself. Use is not without risk, inform yourself well from various sources before deciding to use Salvia Divinorum.
According to many, smoking Salvia Divinorum in a bong is the best way to use salvia. And not the leaves of the plant, by the way, but an extract that is 5, 10 or even 20 times stronger than the dried leaves. But what is Salvia, is Salvia in a bong really the best way of consuming the herb, how do you smoke Salvia in a bong, and what is the best bong for smoking salvia?
What is Salvia Divinorum?
Salvia Divinorum is a relatively unknown hallucinogenic herb that can give the user a strong spiritual and/or psychedelic experience. When the herb is smoked in a bong, the user experiences an overwhelming "trip" in which the perception is changed in such a way that the user can feel like they are in a completely different world. During such a trip, it is not unusual to "see" living creatures or other entities and feeling like you are able to communicate with them. A Salvia trip usually lasts no more than 10 to 20 minutes, after which the user can feel strange or different for a few hours to days. It is a very intense experience that can in some cases lead to psychosis.
Aside from smoking it, you can also choose to chew Salvia Divinorum for a lighter and milder high. This is almost never done in the Netherlands or any other European country - that likely has something to do with the disgusting bitter taste. Sometimes, people use honey or sugarto sweeten the leaves when chewing them, making it easier to keep the leaves in your mouth for a long time.
Salvia Divinorum does not grow in the wild in the Netherlands, or any other European country that we know of. The plant originally comes from South America, and has been grown indoors for many years in the Netherlands to be able to harvest the leaves. In summer the plants can also be grown outside. But be aware that Salvia Divinorum is not legal to grow in every country.
Smoking Salvia Divinorum in a bong
To get the most out of your Salvia Divinorum (extract), you can smoke it in a bong. It's best to use a relatively large bong for smoking Salvia Divinorum, because you need to inhale as much smoke as you can in one big draw, and then hold it in for as long as you can. For that reason, it's good to have a bong that cools the smoke well, making it smoother. Especially because the smoke of Salvia Divinorum is very sharp on your throat and lungs, and the flavour is not exactly delicious. We recommend to buy an ice bong and/or percolator bong, that cools and filters the smoke well before it is inhaled. A Diffuser Downstem is also a good idea for improving the smoothness of your Salvia bong hit. This makes it much smoother on the throat, and the bad taste is less noticable, without reducing the effects of the herb!
Below you can find a few good bongs for smoking Salvia Divinorum, recommended by our expert friend.
The Blaze Glass Erlkönig Bong is equipped with a diffuser downstem and ice cube holders, giving you a fantastically cool smoke that's very smooth on the throat. On the side it has a "carb hole", for inhaling all of the smoke at once (by releasing your finger from the hole and drawing in fresh air). But most of all, the quality of this bong is astonishingly good: thanks to the thick glass (9mm thick) of high quality and an excellent overall finishing, this is a real bong for life.
The Black Leaf Flaming Skull Bong is a real high-class smoking machine with an unbeatable double tree percolator and ice holders for effective cooling of the smoke. It is a large bong with a capacity big enough for a huge cloud of Salvia smoke. This bong lets you smoke your Salvia in style.
This Black Leaf 4-Arm Percolator Bong has a fantastic price/value ratio. Made of the best borosilicate glass and equipped with a diffuser downstem, a 4-arm percolator AND ice holders for the possibility of cooling the scratchy smoke with ice cubes. And all of that for a very reasonable price. Because the smoke of Salvia Divinorum is so sharp and scratchy on the throat and lungs, it is a good idea to smoke it with a bong like this one that offers good cooling of the smoke.
