               The Anadenanthera genus has been prized for psychoactive effects for nearly 4,500 years. This particular Anadenanthera strain was used in Shamanism by native Indians of the Souther Andes region. What is Shamanism? Shamans are very wise people of the old world that practice and practition by reaching altered states of consciousness to witness and interact with spiritual realms as well as to channel transcendental energies into this world. Shaman's use plants as medicine and thrive for healing.


The seeds of the Anadenanthera colubrina were traditionally made into a snuff by the name of Cebil or Vilca. Cebil seeds are widely used in South America for a change, rather than Africa. A lot of the Shamanic tools mentioned on this website were traditionally used in South Africa. Shamans in South America cultivate the Cebil near the Orinoco basin. Other cultures and tribes who have used Cebil, or Anadenanthera species include the Yanomano and Waika tribes, and by people of the West Indies in the form of a snuff by the name of Cohoba. For the Yanomano and Waika tribes, the stuff was called "Epena." In Epena, even ashes were utilized in the process of its production, resulting in a product with much more inebriant effects.

Back up... What is "snuff"?

Snuff is a fine-ground product intended for consumption by inhaling or sniffing through the nose.


               As an observation from researching many plants over the years I'd like to say that Yopo or "Cebil", falls into the same category of ethnobotanical plants that stimulate a "third eye type nootropic" effects within a person. Cebil's chemical constituents are those of interest to oneironauts. Other similar ethnobotanicals to Yopo include: African Dream Herb Seeds, Xhosa Dream Herb, Dream Herb, Ayahuasca, Cowage, and Passion Flower.


Not too many people know about this stuff, its effects, or the snuff that was traditionally prepared out of it. Because of fascism from government agencies, a lot of vendors who sold it and made it popular have been pushed into a corner. As a result, the effects and knowledge regarding the sacred Yopo have gone more underground. You can still find it for sale but it's a lot more hush tone than it used to be. At any rate, this page is here for educational purposes and I am proud to help spread this ancient knowledge.


Cebil, or Yopo, is an active ingredient in a magical psychedelic brew known as AYAHUASCA made by Shamans from Peru.
