We will not be held liable for any loss, howsoever arising, where any Order is recorded as 'Delivered' in the N.Z Post track & trace database system, or 'Delivery' is confirmed by an agent, acting for N.Z Post, and subsequently a claim for non delivery is made by the Customer.


Are your products shipped discreetly?

Yes, we value the privacy of our Customers.  All our external labeling & packaging for Post, is 100% discreet.

What are your shipping costs?

New Zealand wide, P & P is $6 or $9 if you are Rural delivery.

Where do you source your herbs & herbal remedies from?

All our herbs are sourced from our own organic gardens.  We prepare all our own herbal remedies.

Where are you based?

We are based in the Far North, New Zealand.

Do your herbs contain any synthetic cannabinoids, research chemicals, or any hidden additives?

No, definitely not, all our herbs, herbal extracts & tinctures are 100% Natural, grown & prepared by us.

What's your philosophy on growing herbs?

Our philosophy is to grow our herbs, free from the use of poisonous sprays & contaminants, in soil, as mother nature intended.

Our Salvia divinorum healing herbs are grown year round, outdoors, which means only the healthiest herbs survive in the elements.  

Our herbal remedies are just that, natural remedies, derived from organically grown herb gardens, tended by us.  We don't compromise on quality by 'boosting' the potency of our products with Synthetic chemicals, which means all of the active ingredients naturally contained in the herb are retained.

How long does it take for your herbal remedies to start working?

Due to the nature of herbal remedies, Individual responses will depend on One’s tolerance, sensitivity & metabolism.   For some people, that means they may require repeated dosing sessions over time, or greater concentrations of herbs, or both.

*Please be aware that there are a small percentage ( about 10% to 15% ) of people that are relatively insensitive to Salvonorin A, when compared to the general population.  Anecdotal evidence suggests it may take multiple exposures to Salvinorin A before reverse tolerance results in sensitivity to Salvia divinorum/Salvinorin A. 

What strength Smoking Extract do you recommend?

For most Users, 10x Extract is more than sufficient potency, with 20x Extract suitable for experienced Dosers, & 30x Extract suitable for those with higher tolerance.

As a first time User, you wont know your sensitivity to Salvia divinorum - Salvinorin A, until you dose.

Accordingly, it would be prudent from both a Novice & financial perspective, to try a less concentrated dose of Salvia divinorum Extract in the first instance.


*We recommend our 'Combo Special Sampler' - 15 g of dried, unground Salvia Leaves & 1 g of 5x Salvia Extract, free upgrade to 10x strength.  This will allow you to try quid chewing & extract.

Prior to the P.S.Act amendments that banned all Synthetics, Head Shops were passing off boosted Salvia divinorum extracts, contaminated with Synthetics & Research Chemicals.  Purchasing our extracts may in fact be your first use of a Natural Salvia divinorum product!

Salvia divinorum is scientifically proven to have an anti addiction effect.

Our 10x Extract may assist Cannabis/Synthetics Users, attempting to quit, so they can pass that all important workplace drug testing regime.

Will I fail a workplace drugs test if I am using a Salvia divinorum based product?

Please refer to this LINK, we will NOT be held liable where you rely on this information & subsequently produce a positive result for Salvinorin A/Salvia divinorum.

DO NOT operate machinery or drive a motor vehicle whilst under the influence of ANY of our products.
 
What's the difference between therapeutic dosing using a Smoking Extract, versus taking a Liquid Extract tincture?

Smoking an Extract is fast onset, short duration & is a very potent delivery method that can bring rapid pain relief, mood enhancement & other benefits.

Tincture dosing is slow onset, long duration, & is better suited for those seeking a gentler, longer term delivery method.  Tincture dosing utilizes sublingual absorption via the oral mucosa to deliver a dose of Salvinorin A.

Tincture dosing: 

*Please note, that we advise testing One's sensitivity to Salvia divinorum - Salvinorin A, prior to dosing with tincture.  Tincture dosing via sublingual absorption is NOT recommended to those who possess low sensitivity to Salvia divinorum - Salvinorin A.

Although sublingual dosing via the oral mucosa is the traditional Mazatec method to take Salvia divinorum, it is a less potent delivery method, compared to smokable extract.  Increasing One's sensitivity may involve longer term dosing strategies in order to build up reverse tolerance.  Approximately 10% to 15% of Users have low sensitivity to Salvia divinorum - Salvinorin A.

If you wish to dose sublingually, we recommend sampling a quid of Salvia Leaves to test your sensitivity, prior to purchasing the more expensive tinctures.

What's the difference between Extract & Natural Leaves?

An extract is a concentrated preparation whereby the naturally occurring plant Terpenes & components that make up the plant, are extracted & reinfused into a smaller volume of  leaf.  Extract is very potent, e.g, a gram of 10x extract is prepared from 10 grams of Salvia leaves.

Standard leaves are the dried leaves in their naturally occurring state. One gram of dried Salvia leaves is 1/10th the strength of an equivalent volume of 10x Extract.

When you dose with Extract, you only need a small amount because it is in a concentrated form.

When you dose with Standard Leaves, it is milder, gentler & less potent than extract.  Dried leaves are suitable for micro dosing, making teas, tinctures, quid chewing, & can be smoked too. 

Do you sell your herbs & herbal remedies in any shopfront stores?

No, to keep our costs low, so that we can bring the best available deal to our Customers, we sell our herbal remedies online only.  Our point of Contact is via our GMAIL:   northlandsalvia@gmail.com

If anyone else, other than us, is trying to sell you 'our herbs', they are likely to be adulterated or Fake.

Do you sell wholesale or in bulk?

No, to maintain the highest quality standards of our herbal remedies, we only sell directly online, to our Retail Customers.

It has come to our attention that some unscrupulous Vendors have previously bought our product in bulk, adulterated it with other herbs & additives, & onsold it.  This has the effect of devaluing our fine product & also puts our Customers at risk.  We value our Customers.

Do you have a returns-replacement policy?

Due to the potential for adulteration of our herbal remedies, & thereby risk to any of our Customers,  please be aware that we DO NOT accept any returns where our herbal products have been used, partially used, or the products original N.Z Post sealed bag has been opened. 

Refunds may be issued for the value of the returned product, & DO NOT include the price of shipping, as this is a cost we cannot recover.

We will only accept returns in situations where a product arrives in damaged condition or the wrong item was shipped. In these situations we will send a replacement immediately. 

We will only refund purchases when there is a legitimate problem with the products received. We DO NOT consider 'not liking the effects' of a herb a valid excuse for seeking a refund. 

The herbal products we offer are accurately described and of excellent quality. All extracts are prepared very carefully and their potency is consistent.  We 'road test' all our herbal remedies.  

People have different likes and dislikes, and it is impossible for anyone to know whether or not they will like the effects of a particular herb until they experience it.

People vary alot in sensitivity to Salvia divinorum. Some people are extremely sensitive, and others are amazingly resistant to its effects. Somewhere between 10%-15% of people are unusually insensitive. Presumably this is due to differences in individual body chemistry. 

People who do not experience a physiological response to Salvia divinorum are either not using the product properly or are just not very sensitive to it. 

We cannot accept returns or offer refunds in cases where a person has low sensitivity or does not like its effects.  Salvia divinorum pleases most of the people most of the time, but certainly not all of the people all of the time. 

Customer Delivery Address:

Where the Customer purchases any of our herbal remedies or products, the onus lies with the Customer to provide an accurate, current, postal address for delivery. 

We will not be held liable for any loss, howsoever arising, where:  the Customer provides an incorrect delivery address;  the Customer fails to provide a current delivery address at the time of purchase, which results in loss, pertaining to any herbal remedies or products purchased from us, howsoever arising.

*By purchasing ANY of our herbal remedies, you agree to ALL our terms & conditions.

What is the best way to store Salvia?

If you wish to maintain your herbs potency, it is best stored in an airtight tin, in a cool, dry place, out of light.

For optimum storage conditions, to prevent your Herbs from 'sweating', replace your snaplock plastic bags with the ubiquitous aluminium foil, Kiwis are so fond of using to wrap almost anything!


How can I get the most out of this herb? 


Establish Intention -  e.g, I want to 'kick the monkey off my back' that has been hanging on since the break up of my relationship.

Set (Mindset) & Setting is everything!  Avoid disturbance - turn the phone off!

Create a peaceful, relaxed, safe environment.  A Sitter may be appropriate.

Put some conducive music on in the background, i.e, slow, rhythmic chanting, tribal drum beats , or woodwind instruments, e.g flute,  clarinet, etc. 

*Sound can be a vital ingredient in prompting your Journey. 


LINK:  Traditional Shamanic Journey Music 

If you're more of a modernist, Electric guitars, e.g, Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, are a great Journey tool too!


IMPORTANT:  Close your eyes & eliminate visual distractions.  

The Mazatecs describe Salvia as being " very shy, timid like a deer.  She will come only when we have eaten many pairs of the leaves and sit very quietly, perfectly still, in utter darkness, as in a glen in the forest in the moonlight.
If someone moves or speaks suddenly, she will disappear in a moment. If we invite her, and are very clear and open to her, she will come, she will speak. She will whisper to us what we need to know and show us what she sees "


Maintaining closed eyes, or partaking in total darkness is an essential element to any Journey.

Lie down on a comfortable cushion, couch, bed roll, or bed.

*Always consider the use of a Sitter to monitor you & keep you safe.


This is one of my personal go to favourites for Chakra unblocking:
