In every period of their history, human beings use sacred plants for mystical experiences. Here are a few of the most famous ones.
Salvia leaf is physically safe. The plant is a member of the family of Labiatae plants.
The plant itself is a fascinating psychoactive, not chemically related to any other one. Mazatec Indians, (Oaxaca - Mexico)used Salvia in religious and healing ceremonies.
Salvia is a truly unique visionary herb and offers a deep experience of introspection. Anyone who has tried that he came to a state of awareness and self-reflection. Some choose to go there just for a strong feeling of meditation. Salvia Divinorum contains salvinorin (a chemical substance). Salvinorin is the psychoactive substance that creates Salvia's mind-altering effects. Also the effects of Salvia are instant when used, the plant is completely safe without any toxicity and side effects. It is good to mention the obvious saying that of course when under the influence of these kind of psychedelic substances, you should avoid driving any vehicle in order to protect yourself and the others. A good idea would be also that if you are a newbie to try this with friends and not alone and in a place that you feel comfortable and safe.
Peyote cactus, was also one of the plants that has been used for thousands of years by Native American Indians as a part of their very important mystical and religious ceremonies. The small, cactus grows in the American Southwest and northern Mexico contains a psychoactive ingredient that is called Mescaline, a strong hallucinogenic chemical. Mescaline use was prohibited in several US states in the 1920s and 30s, but during the sixties remained legal in most of the US states. Many hippies had the opportunity to try the psychedelic presents of peyote, and describe their experiences as life changing. Nowadays peyote is used to cure addictions to hard drugs and alcohol but also depression.
Magic mushrooms are fungi originally grown in Americas but also in Asia. This kind of mushrooms are used for ages but the last decades were known as “Magic” because of the psychedelic LSD-like effect that produce. Psychologist Timothy Leary was one of the first scientists that supported the use of this kind of mushrooms for psychological use. Psilocybin is the chemical compound contained in the Magic mushrooms responsible for the psychoactive effects of these fungi.These effects were until the fifties mostly unknown to the Western world. An article that appeared in Life magazine made the so called in our days “shrooms” very popular
Since in many countries magic mushrooms are nowadays outlawed, people can try the magic truffles - a similar fungi - also known as "Philosopher's Stones" and contain also psilocybin and psilocin. Recently scientific research found out that there is a possibility that Magic mushrooms can potentially be used to cure depression. The effects of Magic Truffles are similar to the ones of Magic Mushrooms. They contain the same chemicals that make you experience another perception of the reality around you.
