Red Sage is a common sage planted as an ornamental.It is
scientifically called salvia splendens.
One leaf chewed and kept,sublingually,(under the tongue)for 20 minutes
will stop anxiety better than 2 mgr of Lorazepam,for about 4 to 6

No euphoria induced.
Only pure anxiolysis and anti-stress effects.This is the Holy Grail of
the pharmaceutical companies:anxiolysis without euphoria...

The active components of this sage are hypothesised to be neoclerodane
diterpens(salviarin,splendidin or both).
