Here's the part where we must give credit where credit
is due. A large portion of this FAQ has used essential excerpts from other pre-existing
source documents. The intent behind this FAQ is to educate individuals that
are genuinely interested in Salvia divinorum, in such a way that is informative,
unbiased, and non-promoting.
Compilation of facts, extractions, extrapolations, edits,
revisions, and new additions have been made by "Spider-Man".
Original source documents that were used are as
Salvia divinorum FAQ - created by "Sage Student" and Daniel Siebert.
This is a great informational source for Salvia users, however it is tailored
to the products that are sold within that site. One must carefully navigate through
the sea of subtle advertisements that interfere with the facts about Salvia divinorum.
Caveat emptor - buyer beware.
Community Salvia Divinorum FAQ - created by various Salvia authors.
This is an EXCELLENT informational source for those wanting informational and
unbiased facts about Salvia divinorum. This alternate Salvia source can be found

The other FAQ, available exclusively via Daniel Siebert's SageWisdom.org, doesn't
really follow the guidelines that have traditionally been established for FAQs,
in two ways. First, it requires that it not be copied to other sites. Traditionally,
netiquette encourages that information FAQs be posted at numerous sites (as
long as they remain intact, include the credits and authorship information,
and retain a link to their site of origin). Second, the other FAQ acts-to some
extent-as a vehicle of commercial advertising, exclusively plugging the products
sold at the web site where it is hosted. While there is indeed much good information
in this other FAQ, it is the belief of the authors that a FAQ true to the original
spirit of the web acts as a service to provide non-biased, non-commercial information.
Hence the birth of "The Community Salvia divinorum FAQ."

- This site is one of the most SUPERIOR places on the internet where you can
purchase Salvia products. Not only do they offer premium grade Salvia products,
but they offer them at INCREDIBLY AFFORDABLE PRICES as compared to other vendors

- this is the homepage for one of the most superior drug/herb research sites
on the net that I have come across. All the information there is free! So remember,

(you even get free stuff if you donate).
