Salvia is the worst drug ever.
Yeah, maybe because they're the worst "hallucenations" ever. I mean, anyone who's ever tried shrooms can tell you salvia is the diet fresca of tripping, and makes you feel like your brain needs a shower afterwards. Such a dirty, gross feeling in your head when you use it. Sure, it fucks you up, but not even in an enjoyable way. How that shit is legal and weed isn't, I'll never fkn know.
By "off putting" you mean "The dirtiest trip possible next to jenkem" then yeah.
