                <p>Salvia Divinorum or Diverner’s sage is considered
the best 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, the
information about chemistry of Salvia Divinorum is also quiet restrained.
But as the herb has gained popularity in last couple of years, this has
pursued scientists also to take keen interest in the chemistry of Salvia
Divinorum. Due to the presence of Salvinorin in the herb, Salvia
Divinorum is marked as the best Salvia herb and hence makes it superior
to other types of sages. Salvinorin constitutes majorly of Salvinorin A
and Salvinorin B and the group of its compounds is known as neoclerodane
diterpenoids. Out of the two constituents, Salvinorin A is the primary
component and the formula for same is C23H28O8. This component is also
referred as psychoactive compound. Unlike most other natural drugs,
Salvinorin A doesn’t contain a basic nitrogen atom and hence the
component is not an alkaloid. The chemistry of Salvia Divinorum is in
such a manner that its component does give a negative reaction on urine
tests. This unique quality makes it incomparable with any other drug.
Salvinorin A is the only proved Divinorum contained in the herb which
produces psychoactive effects But according to many researchers, Salvia
Divinorum may also contain other psychoactive substance namely, 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.</p><br> <p>There are a few websites selling genuine salvia
