Salvia species (S. recognita, S. cryptantha and S. glutinosa) contained relatively high levels of salvinorin A (212.86 ± 20.46 μg/g, 51.50 ± 4.95 μg/g and 38.92 ± 3.74 μg/g, respectively). Salvinorin B was also found in Salvia species of S. potentillifolia, S. adenocaulon and S. cryptantha as 2351.99 ± 232.22 μg/g, 768.78 ± 75.90 μg/g and 402.24 ± 39.71 μg/g, …none of the Salvia species in Turkey had similar DNA sequence to Salvia divinorum plant.


Perhaps in light of recent changes to the status of this plant in some countries and or states there should be some active hybridization between those species that are active with the more active species? Perhaps introducing some hybrid vigor in the process?

I've heard reports about activity in other salvia species. Cross breeding them is a great idea. When salvia d does produce seeds they don't always sprout and the offspring may be feeble. I wonder how those species compare with sal d in potency? Probably less but a cross could be more. If it was equally potent or even close but was easy to grow it would be a great thing.

Hybid vigor in combination with some line breeding might be in order to bring about a noteworthy plant or plants, but it certainly own't happen if no one tries.
