An internet search on salvia abuse or addiction provides some excellent deals at your local Lowe’s or Home Depot. It also shows the helpful information that it is deer resistant. Look a little more closely. You’ll see incongruous words such as “psychoactive” and “hallucinogen.” It’s true. This innocuous, pretty purple plant in your herb garden has a sinister side.
Monitoring the Future Survey on Salvia Abuse
Also, a Monitoring the Future survey conducted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse shows salvia as a substance abused by teens. Perhaps an unfortunate side effect of a science project, the discovery of this sage’s helper from ages past.
Of course, the long-term effects of salvia abuse are unknown. But, recent studies with animals show that salvia harms learning and memory.
