Online PR News – 25-February-2009 – – Los Angeles, California, February 23, 2009 - "Kratom Extract contains many alkaloids including mitragynine (once thought to be the primary active compound), mitraphylline, and 7-hydroxymitragynine (which is currently the most likely candidate for the primary active chemical in the plant). Although structurally related to yohimbine and other tryptamines, its pharmacology is quite different, acting primarily as a mu-opioid receptor agonist. It also shares some adrenergic receptor activity similar to that of yohimbine. This is the reason for the for the psychoactive effects of Kratom" says the owner of

Pointing to another product, he added that, "Salvia Divinorum or Diviner's sage is considered the most interesting herb among the thousands of Salvia species. It is an extraordinary herb, used for healing, medication and divination by Mazatec Indians. Due to limited research conducted on Salvia Divinorum, information about the chemistry of Salvia Divinorum is also limited. But as the herb has gained popularity in last couple of years, this has encouraged scientists to take keen interest in the chemistry of Salvia Divinorum. The presence of Salvinorins in Salvia Divinorum is what scientists believe makes this sage special. Salvinorin-A and salvinorin-B belong to a group of compounds that are known as neoclerodane diterpenoids. Out of these two constituents, salvinorin-A is the primary component, with the chemical formula of C23H28O8. This compound is thought to be the major psychoactive compound in Salvia.

"Unlike most other natural drugs, Salvia doesn't contain a basic nitrogen atom and hence the component is not an alkaloid. The chemistry of Salvia Divinorum is in such that it is not usually tested on common drug tests. This unique quality makes it incomparable with most common, popular drugs. Salvinorin-A is the only proven compound in Salvia which produces psychoactive effects. But according to many researchers, Salvia Divinorum may also contain other psychoactive substance namely, a group of Divinorums - divinorum-A, divinorum-B and divinorum C. The chemistry of Salvia Divinorum is still a mystery, but soon researchers would be able to provide us with complete details on the subject."

A customer who purchased Salvia from commented that, "People have a misconception that it is illegal to buy salvia. Those who have a stable mindset and are in the mood to handle an out of body experience should try Salvia Extract in small amounts so they can learn how to recognize the feeling, and will also know what to expect. It is very cheap to buy salvia and it is still legal in many states and countries, and it isn't addictive. It is best to try small doses with the help of somebody who has experience with Salvia and can help you when you use it. As you begin with smaller amounts, be patient and avoid getting anxious and using more since the initial effects can be gradual."
