Master Plant Teacher
The Banisteriopsis caapi vine, also known as Ayahuasca, is revered by many tribes as a plant of the gods and a Master Plant Teacher. This giant woody vine grows in the lush Amazon rainforest of Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, and Brazil, and has drawn worldwide attention for its unique characteristics and properties. It has been traditionally used by countless South American tribes for thousands of years and is known for its healing power. This vine is richly steeped in cultural mythology and tradition, making it one of the most fascinating and culturally rich plants on earth.
The Banisteriopsis caapi vine possesses a distinct appearance, with a circular twisting shape that bears many branches and leaves. It can grow up to 40 feet in height and has green, oval-shaped, pointed leaves that are smooth. The flowers are petite and white to pinkish in color when in full bloom. The vine thrives in humus-rich and moist soil, with lots of water, such as in warm tropical environments.
The deep brown stems of the Banisteriopsis caapi vine are filled with various chemical constituents, including harmine, harmaline, and tetrahydroharmine, which are classified as harmala alkaloids and MAOIs. Scientific analysis has identified the vines to constitute approximately 0.11-0.83% beta-carboline, with the majority being harmaline and tetrahydroharmaline. The vine also contains several alkaloids.
Traditionally, a tea of the vine is decocted and used to treat a wide variety of illnesses. The decoction can also be massaged into the skin. Young Waorani boys have the powder blown into their lungs through a bird windpipe, which is said to give the child powerful lungs and the strength to become a great hunter.
As the discovery and exploration of the traditional use of Ayahuasca grew, it became known for its telepathic powers. Initially, the psychoactive alkaloid was called telepathine, which is now known as harmaline. When this root was used on its own, it produces mood-enhancing and sedative effects. In stronger doses, the harmaline can produce nausea, vomiting, and shivering.
