Product information

Yopo, Anadenanthera peregrina and Piptadenia peregrina are different names for the same plant, which has a rich ethnobotanical history. Not to be mistaken with A. colubrina, or cebil, its use is well documented and covers at least 55 indigenous tribes.

The snuff made from yopo seeds is called cohoba, which has been used in ritual contexts in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico. Many artifacts and administration paraphernalia have been discovered, the long tube, used for blowing cohoba into the nostril of another person, being the most familiar object.

Tripping effects of yopo seeds

It should be noted that user reports on both yopo and cebil are only rarely precise and correct in describing their ingredients. Most people are not aware of the difference in chemical makeup of the two species’ seeds.

Although yopo is taken orally or sometimes even rectally, most people use it parenterally, or through the nose. When snorted, yopo causes a heavy body load in most users. Dizziness, vomiting and headache are common, especially with doses over 3 seeds. Most users also report a dreamlike state of mind or a psychedelic experience, lasting around 15 minutes, with a 30 to 45-minute afterglow.

Preparing yopo for consumption

In order to be absorbed by the body, the seeds must be prepared prior to use:

  • use 1-4 seeds per person
  • heat seeds on low heat until they pop
  • separate the outer seed from the inner seed
  • the inner part of the seed is used
  • discard the outer seed shell
  • heat the remaining inner seed on low
  • stop heating when it is hard and crunchy
  • crush the seed (use a coffee grinder, mortar and pestle, etc.)
  • mix the following: 2 parts seed, 1 part lime or shell, and 1 part baking soda
  • add a few drops of water to form a paste
  • mix well and heat on low until material dries
  • crush dry material into a fine powder (use a coffee grinder, mortar and pestle, etc.)

Fresh seeds will puff up and pop (revealing the inner part of the seed) when lightly heated (may take up to 20-30 minutes). A small pot or pan works well, a lid will help retain heat. After the seed pops, separate the outer seed from the inner seed and discard the outer seed.

The inner part of the seed is then crushed into a powder and mixed with lime (or shells) and baking soda. A small amount of water is added to the mixture to form a paste. Mix the paste well, so that all ingredients are combined together.

Then put it in a pot or pan and supply low heat to evaporate the water from the paste. When the paste dries into a powder, use a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle to crush the mixture into a fine powder that can be snorted.

It may take a while for the mixture to dry, a fan can help speed things up. Edible lime or shell (containing lime) must be added to the mixture in order to be absorbed by the human body effectively. Baking soda added to the mixture will also improve bodily absorption.

The reason cebil or yopo snuff is sometimes blown by a fellow shaman into the nose of the user is that it is unpleasant. A helper can force a larger amount of the drug into the recipient's nasal cavity than the user would be able to consume alone.

You can make your own inhalation tube with some hollow plant stem or something else that will allow you to inhale the powder you have produced. Most people report a pleasant experience if the user can overcome the nasal discomfort and nausea.

There will most likely be some degree of an uneasy feeling in the stomach. If you can not force yourself to ingest enough powder to produce the desired effect, a helper can force-blow a large amount of cebil or yopo into your nasal passage. Experienced users say 1-2 seeds worth of powder will have a stimulating effect.

The inhalation of 3-4 seeds worth of cebil or yopo is said to produce a period of stimulation lasting about 20-40 minutes followed by a sedative period where hallucinations will probably be experienced. The first time you try, start with 1 seed (mild) to 4 seeds (wild) worth of snuff and see what you think. A sitter who is not using the drug is a good idea.

Dosages between 3-5 seeds have shown to be psychedelic for many users. Dosages over 5 seeds are very high and uncomfortable for most people. One bag contains approximately 40 to 50 seeds.

Yopo is one of the most insane drugs in the world according to many sites and myths. Before I tried it I have read trip reports of people seeing their spiritual animal and how natives in South America have used it for ritual events and hunting in the rain forests.

As I tried it I failed too see strong visuals or get nauseous, luckily. What I did experience was a very fast onset in the way that I became very aware of my surroundings and save strange shades in the sides of my view. I felt a strong increase in my energy levels which made me walk around in the room aimlessly. My thoughts were scattered, I felt like I was thinking without thinking on anything specific and sensed a strong urge to do things.

The trip didn't last long probably because of the small dosage and the offset came in about 45-60 mins after using it. During come down I didn't experience anything drastic and the effect seemed to just fade away.

The seeds certainly have some power to them (after all they do contain some of the strongest hallucinogenics known). The biggest drawback comes to the route of administration that is required (intranasal), it burns quite strongly and is extremely uncomfortable if you are not familiar with snorting substances.

The seeds certainly have some power to them (after all they do contain some of the strongest hallucinogenics known). The biggest drawback comes to the route of administration that is required (intranasal), it burns quite strongly and is extremely uncomfortable if you are not familiar with snorting substances.

Due to the mentioned troubles with actually consuming the material I was not able to consume the full intended 4 seeds (I only managed about 2), thus the experiencing was not overwhelmingly strong.

There is quite a strong body high in the form of heaviness that I could not care for. There is certainly some psychedelic effects reminiscent of DMT, which would probably be more pronounced if a stronger dose was attainable.

If there is another route of administration possible I would certainly try the product again. If you don't mind snorting powders than this product is certainly something to try.

The whole experience in general was pretty fun, the cooking part was great, thou I was not 100 percent sure for some parameters (the sites and forums, reports etc all had different recipes. I guess there's is a lot space for experimentation by myself! I cooked in total 10 seeds…

The whole experience in general was pretty fun, the cooking part was great, thou I was not 100 percent sure for some parameters (the sites and forums, reports etc all had different recipes. I guess there's is a lot space for experimentation by myself! I cooked in total 10 seeds that popped, and mixed it with lime on a 4 yopo to 1 lime ratio. Dried it and I was good to go.

We all sat down, fix the setting music etc, And I snorted a fat line, instant overwhelming burn got my nose and face. After I got it good, I sneezed a couple a hard couple of times and had uncontrollable tears. My body suddenly got a feeling that I was trying to get out of my body, and see myself from above, but apparently it was just trying to do it without being able. just that not too unpleasant, the opposite id say just pretty interesting. My perception was okay but not too sociable..
After that I started getting very hazy and relaxed and looking around in search of visual (expectations).

I got a few things moving around me in the screen, I could get still images, move and make shapes, my friends faces became like wooden puppets.. but that was all. I snorted a smaller line as I cooled and refuelled the visuals and the body high for a little more time. but in a couple of hours I was beginning to get social again. Next day was the best part, because I was ultra relaxed body and mind!!!
