AYAHUASCA



Ayahuasca is an entheogenic brew or tea made from the Banisteriopsis caapi vine and the Psychotria viridis leaf. It is used in traditional ceremonies among the indigenous tribes of Amazonia. P. virdris contains DMT, a powerful psychedelic, and B. caapi contains monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), which work synergistically with DMT to produce a long-lasting psychedelic experience.


Traditional ayahuasca healing ceremonies have recently become more popular among Westerners, leading to an increase in the appearance of ayahuasca retreats. These allow people far-removed from the traditional lifestyle the opportunity to receive the ayahuasca benefits of healing and new beginnings.


Various studies have shown that ayahuasca therapy may be effective in the treatment of depression and addiction. As this ancient brew comes more into the limelight, we may see it become a widespread and accepted form of psychedelic therapy.
