Effects of Diviners Sage (Salvia divinorum)

I was wandering if you have ever heard of Salvia divinorum? I purchased some leaves. I was told to smoke it for relaxant feelings. Do you have any information on this?

Salvia divinorum does more than relax you: it is a potent hallucinogen. For the Mazatec Indians of Mexico it is a sacred plant used to induce divinatory visions that help discover the cause of a patient’s illness, to help find lost items, etc., or to answer spiritual questions.
