 Salvia divinorum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Salvinorin A, an active component of the hallucinogenic sage salvia divinorum is a highly efficacious kappa-opioid receptor agonist: structural and functional considerations.
The Salvinorin group of compounds (including Salvinorin A, Salvinorin B and Salvinorin C) are called neoclerodane diterpenoids.
Salvinorin A is unique in that it is the only naturally occurring substance known to induce a visionary state via this mechanism of action.

 Salvinorin A (Salvia): Notes of Caution
Salvinorin A (the major active principal of the plant Salvia divinorum) is an extremely powerful consciousness altering compound.
Salvinorin A has a relatively high boiling point and people often don't get it hot enough to remain a gas all the way down into the lungs.
The neoclerodane diterpene, salvinorin A (also known as divinorin A), has been demonstrated in animals and humans to be its major active ingredient.

 Salvia divinorum receptors found, salvia receptor, salvinorin receptors, Ask Dr. Shulgin Online January 9, 2002
Salvinorin-A is the active component of the plant Salvia divinorum, also known as Ska Pastora, hojas de la Pastora, or leaves of the shepardess by the Mazatec in northern Oaxaca.
One study has been made with a commercial company screening salvinorin-A within a collection of about a dozen neuroreceptors (including dopamine, serotonin, GABA and muscarinic receptors) and nothing of interest was found.
I was wondering if they had found any neurotransmitter sites for Salvinorin-A, B or C. They are compounds of such high potency that I wonder if they might actually mutate receptor sites into new sites specific for salvia.

 Dosage and Administration
The salvinorin A was placed on the center of a piece of thick aluminum foil, which was heated from below with a butane micro-torch or "jet flame" lighten As the salvinorin A turned to a white vapor, the vapors were inhaled through a 15mm diameter glass tube.
Salvinorin A can be efficiently consumed by inhaling the vaporized crystalline powder, or by smoking, providing the crystalline powder has been placed on a substrate such as dried Salvia divinorum leaf.
Salvinorin A is approximately 10 times the potency of these compounds, and nearly as potent as the semi-synthetic psychedelic, LSD.

 Salvia Divinorum, (Street Names: Maria Pastora, Salvia)
Salvinorin A, also called Divinorin A, is believed to be the ingredient responsible for the psychoactive effects of S. divinorum.
Recent studies using tissue testing (in vitro) assays and functional assays show that Salvinorin A acts as a potent agonist on the Kappa opioid receptor.
This may explain the psychoactive effects of Salvia divinorum and Salvinorin A since other drugs acting at Kappa opioid receptors have been found to cause dysphoria, illusions, and hallucinations.

 The plant-derived hallucinogen, salvinorin A, produces kappa-opioid agonist-like discriminative effects in rhesus monkeys.
Salvinorin A is the active component of the hallucinogenic plant Salvia divinorum.
The opioid antagonist quadazocine (0.32 mg/kg) fully blocked the effects of salvinorin A. The kappa-selective antagonist GNTI (1 mg/kg; 24 h pretreatment) did not cause significant antagonism of the effects of salvinorin A (GNTI, under these conditions, was only effective as an antagonist in two of three monkeys).
The ability of salvinorin A to cause generalization (>/=90% U69,593-appropriate responding) was examined in time course and cumulative dose-effect curve studies.

 Salvinorian A
Salvinorin B is desacetyl divinorin A and acetylation is possible to convert Salvinorin B into Salvinorin A. The acetyl group missing in Salvinorin B is on the second carbon of the first ring (White arrow)(Valdes et al 1984).
A 1993 study found that Salvinorin A is not absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract regardless of dose (Seibert 1994).
When the Salvinorin A extract is vaporized and inhaled through a short glass tube, the effects, hallucinations, arise with a 200 microgram dose (Siebert 1994).

The trouble is, a lot more than just the salvinorin A gets dissolved out of the leaves, much of the plant lipids get dissolved in the solvent as well and end up in the extract and subsequently in your lungs.
Salvinorin A is a very stable compound and will not lose any potency over time.
The trouble is, a lot more than just the salvinorin-A gets pulled out of the leaves; much of the chlorophyll and plant fats get dissolved as well and end up in the finished extract and subsequently in your lungs.

 Neoclerodane Diterpenes as Potential Drug Abuse Therapeutics
Salvinorin A thus represents not only a potential drug of abuse but also a possible route for the creation of novel therapeutics for stimulant and opioid dependence.
The main active component of the hallucinogenic sage is salvinorin A, a neoclerodane diterpene that has been shown to be a selective and potent k-opioid receptor agonist.
Methods: Initially, we set out to optimize the extraction of salvinorin A from Salvia divinorum leaves in order to synthesize and evaluate analogues of salvinorin A. For the isolation of salvinorin A, we have modified existing procedures and increased the bio-yield to approximately 7.5 g from 1.5 kg of dried leaves.

 Salvinorin A isolation
To obtain salvinorin A in its pure form, from blackwax, chromatography is used.
The salvinorin A content in leaves I have tested, ranged from 1.5mg/g for home grown plants, upto a massive 5.4 mg +/- 10% for mexican plants harvested during summer.
The impurities which make up the bulk of the blackwax precipitate out of solution before the salvinorin A. If this doesn't occur another stumbling block must be overcome - the dissolved chlorophylls and other junk keeps the salvinorin in solution stopping any crystallisation.

 Erowid Salvia Divinorum Vault : Salvinorin Activity at Kappa Opioid Receptor
By using cloned cells which expressed a variety of neurotransmitter receptor types, bathing them in a solution with salvinorin A in it, and then using radio-labeled chemicals known to bind to the given receptor, they were able to see if the salvinorin kept the other chemical from 'sticking'.
Because the binding 'affinity' for the radio-labeled ligands was known, the amount the salvinorin blocked it produced a numerical value which then could be used to rate how much salvinorin stuck to the receptor.
As Roth writes in his 2002 paper about salvinorin A, "because the KOR has long been recognized as a target for psychotomimetic agents, KOR antagonists may represent a novel class of psychotherapeutic compounds.
