Salvia divinorum [&] analgesic & anti-inflammatory action

…the minutes-long hallucinogenic and dissociative effects of recreational S. divinorum in humans have been described in detail.

Salvia divinorum… inhibited contractions of the mouse colon, stomach, and ileum in vitro; prolonged colonic propulsion; and slowed upper GI transit in vivo by activating KOR, CB1, and interestingly by activating cannabinoid type 2 receptors (CB2). In our laboratory, we coadministrated S. divinorum hydroponic extract (containing both salvinorin A and B) and anandamide (cannabinoid agonist), and we found a synergic effect at low doses of both compounds (10 and 30 µg/kg, respectively). This coadministration induced an analgesic effect in two of the main behavioral responses of this test, licking and escape, involved in the spinal and supraspinal nociceptive process.
