No Joke, Gwyneth Paltrow Grows Salvia In Her Garden!!!

| Filed under: DrugsGwyneth Paltrow


Is this a joke? Are you making a big GOOPY joke, Miz Gwyneth Paltrow? Or do fancy a trip down a rainbow colored hallucination after an afternoon of antiquing and knitting wine jackets for your extensive collection of Merlots?

Today's topic on GOOP.com is … horticulture. Gwyneth wanted to bring her readers on an intimate tour of her rooftop garden at her penthouse apartment in New York City to prove that she indeed has a green thumb, just like all the little people. She posted a few pictures of her garden and raved about how many different herbs she has cultivating just steps away from her kitchen.

Let's see. She's got some chives, some kale, mint, parsley…wait, what's that one next to the mint? Is that, could that be…SALVIA!

It is! That bushy little green shrub is indeed salvia!

Is this real life? Are you serious, Miz Paltrow? Are you trying to tell us that every once and awhile, you like to get down with your Miley Cyrus alter-ego and escape the realms of this world into one where everyone looks like Liam Hemsworth and Frosted Flakes are the only thing worth eating for 20 minutes??? Really??? We never would've guessed!!!

Wonder if she is aware that currently, there is a ban just seconds from being passed that would make this little herb illegal in New York state? Might be a good thing to keep in mind, hun!

P.S. - Girl, maybe the next time you're at home sipping your salvia laced lentil soup and herbal tea, you might want to think about redesigning the GOOP site! It's looking a bit ZzzzzZzzz!!!

    Salvia is in the sage family, this is most likely a sage variety.

  2. 2

    Salvia is legal . Get over it.

  3. 3

    It's okay…we have salvia in our garden. It's a really common plant in most gardens!

  4. 4

    It's a common landscaping plant, many varieties. Calm down.

    Moron, it's probably sage. Just because you've never heard of it before Miley Cyrus doesn't mean the rest of us haven't. Go to any nursery and you can find many beautiful species, I have had it in my garden for years, and never even considered smoking it (or whatever it is they do with it.)

  6. 6

    Oh perez, what's the problem with this? Gaga smokes lots of weed . . .
    Someone as hot as Gwyneth Paltrow can do anything!!!

  7. 7

    Im so happy Perez is the only idiot on here that doesnt realize salvia is in the sage family.

  8. 8

    atleast goop doesn't have 30 ads on each side of their pages trying to hock shit and annoying fucking bridesmaids popups everytime the page loads. fuck off

  9. 9

    what's wrong with sage? I use it to cook all the time.

  10. 10

    perez, you do realize that salvia isn't a single type of plant, right? Guessing from this post, probably not. Salvia is a genus of a certain plant family (forgot which one), so my best guess is that it's sage. DO some research before posting, genius.

  11. 11

    I really try not to hate on you normally, but don't criticize her website design. Your site is pretty much unreadable on a Blackberry, so fix that before you give her shit.

  12. 12

    it is not right to judge people so harshly about what they choose to grow in their private garden. salvia is legal, and people can grow it and use it however the hell they please. just because miley cyrus puts a stupid video of her tripping balls on youtube, doesn't mean respectful, successful people cant use it too. for claiming to be so respectful and open to others, you are so quick to judge

  13. 13

    That's sage, the herb. Geeez.

  14. 14

    There are many different types of salvia plants, and 80% of landscaping has this type of plant. you can't smoke the ones used in typical gardens.

  15. 15

    Perez, there are over 900 different species of Salvia. Salvia (or Sage) is the largest genus of plants in the mint family and it is also a common plant found in many gardens. You also pass Salvia while driving down the highway or any open field of flowers for that matter. It's everywhere, but it's not neccesarily a plant that you're going to get high off of. For future reference, you should do more research on things before you post and make assumptions about what people do in their private lives.

  16. 16

    Re: Charles Block – LOL You are so right! This is so annoying!

  17. 17

    What's the fuss??? salvia is good!! I cook it all the time!! it's a cooking plant!! stop being so stupid Perez… you're annoying….

    hot: bonged out paltrow on the porch. I would fucklist her. fucklisted.com

  19. 19

    Like everyone but a couple of dumb-asses on here said, there are hundreds of salvia species, Salvia officinalis (garden sage, common sage) and Salvia fruticosa (Greek sage) are very commonly used as cooking herbs, over 100 are used as ornamentals for their flowers, and only one that I know of, Salvia divinorum, has psychedelic effects, that only last a few seconds to about a minute when smoked in LARGE quantities or HIGHLY CONCENTRATED form (meaning it has to be processed by someone first). So much for this supposedly sensational non-story…

  21. 21

    Slow day in the news, uh?

    And it also looks like mr. Horsechin can't do a little research before putting out unreliable reports on people's drug habits..

    And by research I mean giving a shot to google, nothing too fancy…

    Stocking up on champagne for the day this BS website will be put to sleep, everyone (but Fuckface) is invited..

  22. 22

    Excellent job Gwenyth Paltrow. We should ALL be doing this and NOW! 'Nell' is one of my favorite movies of the 1990s. Now she is a top yenta who is carried away with herself, but a great job!

  23. 23

    uhm, Mario, I live on long island AND THERE ARE MANY MANY VARIETIES OF SALVIA-annuals and perenials, herb varieties and flowers. Some red small flowers and TALL SLENDER PURPLE PERENNIALS. NY STATE has not, NOT, made SALVIA ILLEGAL! OUR GOV'T BUTTS IN WITHOUT THINKING, but, if NYS makes SALVIA ILLEGAL, they will have so many protests FROM LEGITIMATE PEOPLE, BUSINESSES, ETC. and they, again, as usual, WILL LOOK LIKE MORONS. There are soo many plants and herbs people can smoke to make them high…. OR KILL THEM. …. Our gov't has got to calm down on some things.

  24. 24

    Are you serious? I saw packets of Salvia seeds at the garden centre the other day..
    Mentioned nothing about any of its hallucinogenic qualities on the packet neither.

  25. 25

    Your such a douche bag Perez. This isn't even worthy of news.

  26. 26

    I have this in my yard; very common in a traditional English-style garden. I don't grow it to smoke it any more than i do my boxwoods or hostas. Love you, P, but this is NOT a story.

  27. 27

    this is the dumbest post yet.. you can buy salvia in nurseries and probably drive by it everyday…

  28. 28

    Oh please SHUT THE FUCK UP. I love how our founding fathers said religion and state should be separate. but we have in god we trust stamped on our bills. We also have politicians exploiting religion to gain trust of naive voters..So what in the fuck gives them the right to ban something created by god and something growing in gods soil. Sorry religious idiots..You can't have it both ways.

  29. 29

    My mother grows the salvia plant in her garden too as well as poppy they're plants stupid.

  30. mayi says – reply to this


    HA! her website, a bit zzz?? It's called hiring professional web designers, you might want to try it. Yours is a complete horror in terms of look and usability!

  31. 31

    Salvia is legal…its an herb for tea and cooking and also a very common annual flower…probably one of the most common plants found in anyone with a full garden. Do some research before you post stuff.

  32. 32

    you moron. Read the article it's sage. Obviously you don't eat anything but McDonald's or you'd know sage is an herb used quite frequently in cooking.

  33. 33

    And what's wrong with this?

    It's a good medicine and for fumigate!

    We use it often!

  34. 34

    You can buy salvia at motherfucking Lowes. I hope you're not trying to smoke Paltrow's shit, Pee Hilly

  35. 35

    Ohhhh Perez. You have done it again haven't you? Always "claiming" that you are the oh so righteous and forever humble human being. You constantly parade "GOOP" (which I'm really not sure WHY you insist to use that nickname) around on your website, just like Lady GAGA, and make every viewer aware that you think she is the be-all-end-all to your world, and then just because of this small piece of new about "salvia" in your garden you toss her aside like last week's news. I'm sure (if you've been reading these posts - which, can you read?? Because you certainly can't spell) you should now know that it's in the same family as Sage - Lamiaceae or Labiatae, which is also known as the mint family. It includes MANY widely used culinary herbs. Did you ever stop to think, even for one second, that it might (I mean MIGHT) just be a good idea to do a LITTLE bit of research before you throw your beloved under the bus? And throw a little insult to injury into the mix? I mean you don't even know the whole story and you're already quoting that her website is boring! Didn't you and Jennifer Aniston already have this talk about how it is to be a bully? And didn't you "proclaim" that you would begin to change? Wow how the mightly have fallen. Get a life Perez. And get a dictionary. Check

  36. 36

    I love how Perez is commenting on Goop.com being "a bit Zzzzzz", when he has one of the most "[VOMIT NOISES]" nauseating websites in the world. I mean, in design school it's basically a rule to not add unattractive pictures of drama queens and the color pink…

  37. 37

    I've had salvia in my garden for years. Who cares. You can buy it at the local nursery. It's pretty.

  38. 38

    Sweetheart, Salvia is a REAL plant. Quite beautiful in red or sometines purple-ish flowers and attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.

  39. 39

    Salvia was made an ilegal substance in Ontario Canada a few months ago

  40. 40

    Jesus, Perez. I have like three different kinds in my garden right now.. it's just a flower/ herb. You can get it at just about ANY garden center..

  41. 41

    Mario - shut up. Salvia is legal (and so should marijuana be as well). Why do you care so much you judgmental twit.

  42. 42

    Dude. My grandma grows salvia in her garden. Its just a plant. Relax. My grandma isnt sittin around smoking it chill.

  43. 43

    Perez…salvia is not acid. nobody on salvia is having hard ass trips or crazy hallucinations. I wish you would just smoke some pot, or salvia at the least, already and then maybe you can make realistic comments when stories break regarding drugs. So she grows salvia in her garden..whoo hoo!

  44. 44

    Geez….cool your dorky heels, you moronic prude. You get excited over the most inconsequential things. Oooh…she has salvia in her garden….

  45. 45

    Salvia is probably the sage variety. Its a super common spice in Europe and elsewhere. Just because you don't know something (and you don't seem to known a lot) doesn't mean that the rest of the world is as ignorant.

  46. 46

    Pretty garden. I wish I had one like that. I thought she lived in London? I guess that marriage is over.

  47. 47

    Re: Charles Block – You can download a free ad-blocker for your browser (I'd recommend Firefox, or, what my mom calls "The Fox Fire"). That should make your trashy, queer-centric gossip-blog trolling a bit more of a pleasant experience.

  48. 48

    you are such a dickkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk. maybe u need Anniston to tell u off so you can be "nice" again… idiot

  49. 49

    Actually, this makes me like her a little more! :)

  50. 50

    First of all, salvia is in the mint family (Laminaceae) and salvia is also a genus and within that genus there are more than 700 different species of salvia. Sage is also the other common name for salvia and think of all the different sages there are. One of Salvias common uses is eithir for culinary purposes or medical. Its wounderful at healing the human body when it is in pain, or dieseased. The type of salvia that you're trying to refer too is salvia divinorum and there is nothing bad about it because for one it is legal and it promotes hallucinatory experience and there's nothing negitave about that because drugs are a personal choice.

  51. 51

    they sell salvia at home depot for gods sake! its mountain sage. almost every perennial garden has it . you cant get high from it.

  52. 52

    It's ok because it's ORGANIC.

  53. 53

    Ummm, is there anyone that DOESN'T grow Salvia, geesus.

  54. 54

    Salvia can be used as a cooking herb.. that's probably why they sell it in grocery stores. DUH

  55. 55

    You do realize that Salvia is SAGE right? Salvia Divinorum would be 'diviner's sage', the salvia that is commonly smoked for it's effects. Try a little more research before freaking out over a herb garden…

  56. 56

    Re: MoreISay – hey thanks for the recommendation! this thing rocks! also, i think all old people call it fox fire, my grandmother does it as well lmao.

  57. Bevi says – reply to this


    Oh come off it Perez. Salvia has been innocently grown and used forever to season food. And it tastes good. Now you make it seem as if Gwyneth is growing an herb garden simply as a cover for her couple of plants of Idiot Miley Salvia. Heck, those plants will sure go a long way! Maybe Gwyneth has dastardly plans to smoke up the rest of her herb garden when the salvia is all gone? She had better not invite Miley over or her "little drug den" will soon disappear. Leave Gwyneth alone. Really, this was TOO petty, even for you.

  58. 58

    This is a whole new level of ignorance. And the PS is extremely bitchy. You have nothing to say about any other website's design, when yours is frankly lame and outdated. Hire a designer, get some taste and then go tell other people their websites are "zzz".

    For someone who went to Ellen's show and whine that he would stop being a bully/moron/pathetic/asshole/bitch, you certainly failed at it. You can't hide your true nature, you prick.

  59. 59

    Perez, people grow Salvia in their gardens because it acts as a natural pesticide. The process of making it in to a smoke-able drug is actually very involved and time consuming, so I doubt that she grows it for those reasons!
