Banisteriopsis caapi, a vine, is the foremost ingredient of ayahuasca, a traditional medicinal tea from the Amazon region. The vine itself is also called ayahuasca, or a host of other names, such as natéma, mihi, kahi, pindé, dápa, yagé, nixi honi xuma and hoasca. This plant is one of the most discussed items in ethnobotany and ethnomedicine.

Some indigenous people distinguish over 40 varieties. Two varieties that are common are Ourinhos and Trueno. "Ourinhos" literally means "little gold" and this strain is apparently the one used by the ayahuasca-drinking churches (Santo Daime, UDV and Barquinha). Some say the name comes from the colour of the infusion made with this variety.

"Trueno" means "thunder" and some people say this type causes relatively high-intensity physical effects.

Effects ayahuasca

Indigenous shamans and others say they can reach altered states of mind by using an infusion from B. caapi alone. This requires a lot of practice. Furthermore, there are 72 tribes that we know of who drink ayahuasca and say the vine itself is their "teacher plant", giving detailed information about other plants. They claim B. caapi is responsible for their excellent botanical knowledge.

In most cases, people add a second plant to the brew. This compound is inactive when taken orally by itself.

Usage

 

Some people use B. caapi prior to ingestion of other psychedelics, typically psilocybin mushrooms. According to some this prolongs and intensifies the effects of the mushrooms, and alters the general direction of the experience. Depending on many factors, usually, quantities of 25 grams or more are used.

Ingredients

We sell the vine, not the leaves. The primary active ingredients in this part of B. caapi are harmine, harmaline and tetrahydroharmine (Raetsch 2005).

Warning

B. caapi contains MAO-inhibiting substances. This means it can be very dangerous when combined with certain foods or other psychoactives that are totally harmless when taken by themselves.

  • + +cannabis=altered effects (placebo?)
  • + best MAOI for aya (i prefer the resin)
  • + unic taste, not bad imho

    ITALIANO

    C'è molto da dire riguardo il Caapi in realtà, sappiate innanzitutto che se il vostro obbiettivo è l'ayahuasca e siete dei novellini, vi consiglio di utilizzare la resina (potete trovare la ricetta online, è molto più veloce e semplice di quella tradizionale), questo anche perché se vorreste sfruttare i metodi tradizionali allora dovreste prendere l'edera, che è più costosa (e poi diciamocelo, se vuoi optare per 50g di shredded, non è abbastanza)... Chiusa questa parentesi sulla bevanda allucinogena per eccellenza, parliamo d'altro... Gira parecchio la voce che questa pianta può essere utilizzata in combinazione con la cannabis per alterare gli effetti di quest'ultima, ma sarà vero oppure un semplice placebo? Sinceramente non so che dirvi, perché a me sembra un normalissimo MAO inibitore e niente più, il motivo per cui potrebbe amplificarne gli effetti quindi non mi è chiaro e forse è da sfatare... Ma comunque, ci ho provato e devo dire che con dell'hashish non è male, il sapore è molto acuminato e consistente ma non mi è affatto dispiaciuto.

    ENGLISH

    Actually there's a lot to say about the Caapi, just know that if your goal is the ayahuasca and you are an amateur, i suggest you to use the resin (you can find the recipe for this online, it's faster and easier than the traditional one), this because even if you want to use the traditional methods, you should buy the vine that it's a lot more expensive (and let's say it, if you opt using the 50g shredded one, than it's not enough)... Closing this topic about the best hallucinogen drink, let's talk about other things... There's a rumor that says you can use this plant to alter the effects of the cannabis, but it's true or a simple placebo? Sincerely i don't know what to say about it, because to me it seems a normal MAOI and no more, so the reason because it should amplify the effects it's not clear and maybe it could be debunked; but anyway, i tried it with some hashish and i have to say that it's not bad, the taste is sharp and substantial, but i didn't disliked it

    Die Rebe schön zerteilt und nach Anleitung auf kleiner Flamme 3 Mal aufgekocht. Am Ende hatte ich eine dickflüssige Brühe.

    Diese war äußerst schwierig zu trinken, da sie direkt Übelkeit erzeugte. Trotz vorangegangenen Fastens führte sie bei mir zu Erbrechen und Durchfall. Warscheinlich verließ der Wirkstoff so schneller meinen Magen, als mein Körper ihn aufnehmen konnte. Bei 2 Wiederholungen passierte leider das Gleiche.

    Mir war vorher klar, dass es äußerst schwierig ist, Ayahuasca selbst zu brauen. Hatte aber nicht gedacht, dass es gar keine Wirkung auf mich hat. Schade.

    Beställde 100 gram av detta (Caapi) + 50 gram av chakruna, tillagade det på korrekt sätt = ingen effekt överhuvud taget, utom stor trötthet i 3 timmar.

    Super Caapi,

    50g meiner Erfahrung nach für Einsteiger genau richtig.
    100g für fortgeschrittene.

    Zur richtigen Zubereitung auf kleiner Flamme 1,5 Stunden köcheln lassen bei mir (Stufe 2), mit Zugabe von etwas Zitronensäure. Wichtig, nur nicht zu heiß! Diesen Vorgang 3x wiederhohlen. Am Schluss alle Aufgüsse reduzieren bis ca. halbes Glas überbleibt.

    Na dann zum Wohl ;)

    Ik heb nu 3 keer Ayahuasca meegemaakt. En elke keer een andere ervaring. Wel met begeleiding tot nu toe. Je maakt een prachtige reis er mee. Duurt de hele nacht door en slapen dat wil je helemaal niet. Elke ervaring is te boeiend om je ogen dicht te maken.

    En als je toch gaat slapen dan heb je genoeg leuke ervaingen mee gemaakt dat je rustig inslaap. Je komt je vaak tegen, in deze korte tijd soms maak je een terug sprong van jaren en je verwerkt het proces veel sneller.

    Über den Versandt lässt sich ehrlich gesagt streiten.. Warte jetzt schon länger als eine Woche und die angegebene Tracking Nummer soll laut der Schweizerischen Post falsch sein.. Darum gebe ich fürs erste mal 2 Sterne. Ansonsten freue ich mich riesig auf die Ware. Bin davon überzeugt dass die Qualität auch gut ist. Werde dann im Forum über die Erfahrung berichten :D

    This is the vine and I`m planning to mix this with the P.viridis to make a tea. I`m kinda scared about what will happend when I`ll drink Ayahuasca. Read a lot before trying anything! Nevertheless I`m very excited. It`s crucial that you fast!
