Part 1 focuses on the Mazatec Shamans and their ceremonial use of Salvia and Psilocybin mushrooms. Since most of Salvia plants are propagated from cutting, technically all the worlds Salvia is from the same plant. Daniel also shares his thoughts and evidence that this "mother" plant may not even be originally from the Sierra Mazatec as commonly believed. Salvia divinorum is truly a mystery. 

Part 2 tells the story of how Salvia divinorum made her way in to modern western civilization and more recently to the global market. From the earliest specimens first brought back to the isolation and discovery of Salvinorin A. Daniel also talks about his pioneering experiments with Salvia and the possible future of the Sage.

You may also find my recent interview about the ethnobotanical industry of interest. I can be found at: EROCx1 discusses ethnobotanicals on the Entheogenic Evolution.

Please be aware that our friend Martin Ball's new book, The Entheogenic Evolution: Psychedelics, Consciousness and Awakening the Human Spirit is now available in paperback and PDF. I encourage everyone to consider purchasing a copy and help support the the Entheogenic Evolution!

If your interested in obtaining the very highest quality Salvia divinorum leaf and extracts. Please help support this blog by making a purchase from Gaian Botanicals.

... I still think he looks like Kenny G.

But thanks for that - I'm giving a presentation on mushrooms next week, so Part 1 should be helpful.

I guess this plant (salvia divinorum) has been historically used for divinatory and medicinal purposes and is used today as a legal smoking herb.
