Mentions: Chia (Salvia columbariae, Benth., Lamiaceae) grows in the west from California to Utah and south to Northern Mexico (Fig. 1). It is usually found growing on decomposing granite and grows best in shade. Chia grows at many elevations, from coastal scrub up to pine woodlands at 1200 m. The seeds have been and continue to be used as food. The seeds are available in stores and are sold by the kg. The seeds were especially used by the Chumash messengers (ksen) who ran perhaps 30 km or more in a day delivering messages between villages. Eating the seeds was supposed to maintain their energy during the run.
