Banisteriopsis caapi: The Vine of the Spirits From The Amazon
Banisteriopsis caapi, the “vine of the spirits” is a jungle vine that is a native to the rainforests of South America. The indigenous peoples of the Amazon use banisteriopsis caapi together with other plants such as Psychotria viridis (chacruna) leaf or Chagropanga to make Ayahuasca, the highly psychoactive spiritual brew which allows humans to enter the spirit world in ceremonies and sacred rituals.
Banisteriopsis caapi contains various alkaloids and MAOIs such as harmine, harmaline and tetrahydroharmine which work in synergy with the other ingredients used for making Ayahuasca. The MAOIs in Banisteriopsis caapi allow the psychoactive compound DMT which is found in the other plants to make the brew such as Psychotria viridis to become orally active. It is also reported that the vine by its own has some psychoactive properties when consumed.
