Now you might wonder what 5x or 10x stands for. Without going to deep into the matter of how an extract is produced it’s actually quite easy to explain. The most easy to explain is by taking the 10x as an example. Imagine you have 1000 grams of Salvia leaves and you make this into a 10x extract. This will leave you with 100 grams of Salvia extract. Another example will be the 20x, if you’d take 1000 grams of Salvia leaves and turn it into a 20x extract then you will be left with 50 grams of extract.
The Salvorin in an extract will be more concentrated so you’ll need less for the same effects. That’s why it’s always best to consider the dosage before taking a strong extract!
It’s not recommendable to smoke Salvia in a joint. This will have very little effects. It’s best to smoke Salvia using a (water-cooled) bong or using a large pipe. A bong is recommended since the smoke can be quite harsh on the lungs and airways and that’s why a water-cooled bong is preferred. When the Salvia is added to the bowl of a bong it’s preferred to burn it with a torch lighter for best combustion. Fill the bong up with the thick yellowish smoke and then inhale. Try to inhale all smoke and keep it in your lungs for about 15 to 25 seconds. It’s very important to keep the smoke in your lungs for as long as possible. It won’t be easy to keep this smoke in your lungs because it’s quite sharp but it will give you the best effects when you succeed doing this. If you don’t feel effects after the first time then keep repeating the process for up to 5 times.
