Sacred Weeds: Salvia Divinorum (1998)
Salvia Divinorum, also known as the diviner’s sage, comes from the same family as common garden mint. Found in southern Mexico, the Mazatec people consider it sacred to the Virgin Mary and use it as a learning aid to gain hidden knowledge of healing, spirituality and sacred visions. In the UK, three specialists gather to scientifically document, for the first time, the physiological and psychological effects of Salvia. They conduct their experiment using two different ingestion methods. After extensive review and debate, the experts disagree on the meanings of the results of their tests.
