Salvia is a plant commonly referred to as sage. It has many different species and uses, such as Salvia officinalis, which is used in cooking, and Salvia sclarea, which is used perfume.

Salvia divinorum has shown effectiveness in treating diarrhea and headaches, but it’s best known for its hallucinogenic properties.

States such as Florida, Illinois and Louisiana have classified Salvia divinorum as a Schedule I drug. In California, sale of Salvia divinorum to a minor is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in prison and a $1,000 fine.
