Salvia Divinorum Scotland ~ Drying the Leaf
The leaf will dry naturally after harvesting. Occasionally, depending on the ambient conditions, this may take a while and result in a mottling on the leaf. This has no effect on the potency, and the process, being similar to 'curing' in breaking down the chlorophyll and starch may even help the leaf burn a little sweeter.
Alternatively, fresh leaf can be dried quickly (20-30 minutes) in front of an electric fan heater.
