             To the people of the Amazon, Caapi or "Banisteriopsis caapi", is a holy, magical, and medicinal plant. Caapi was made into a brew known as Ayahuasca by Shamans. The word literally means "vine of the souls". It's used in certain area's of the world for religious purposes. For example, the Urarina of Peruvian Amazonia use it in sacred religious and healing ceremonies. It's an integrated aspect of their entire culture. Ayahuasca is considered one of many healing "plant teachers" to these types of cultures. Those who use it for religious purposes claim that it contains a sentient intelligence, with vast knowledge - which reveals guidance, and the proper path to choose for self-renewal and a cleansing of the soul.


So why is it these primitive civilizations have such beliefs? It's the psychedelic alkaloids within this mind altering tea that holds the answer to that question. It's active constituents are primarily DMT and MAOI alkaloids such as harmala. DMT is a chemical which your brain creates and utilizes during sleep and dreams. Please note that it's not just one plant that induces these states though. Caapi is one of the several ingredients used in the brew. It's a mixture, and the combination of MAOI type leaves and/or roots, and DMT containing plant material is what makes it active. In other words one herb contains the chemicals that makes it digestible and the other contains the "drug". Chemically, they are nearly identical to psilocybin mushrooms.
