Effect of Banisteriopsis caapi

Shamans and others have said that human beings can only get in another state of mind by using Banisteriopsis caapi. A lot of practice and experience is necessary.
Usually one adds another plant, which has the psychoactive / hallucinogenic DMT, or other psychedelics, to the infusion of plants. Normally, DMT is broken down by enzymes if you take it orally and it is not psychoactive. With Banisteriopsis caapi, the enzyme is temporarily disabled, allowing the DMT to become psychoactive. Banisteriopsis Caapi inhibits the enzyme (monoamine oxidase), allowing the DMT to become psychoactive.


Ayahuasca is made from two different plants. The Banisteriopsis Caapi liana is essential to this hallucinogenic smart drug. After you have added Banisteriopsis Caapi to the leaves of Chacruna (Psychotica viridis) or Chaliponga (Diplopterys cabrerana), you get Ayahuasca. This finely chopped liana makes sure that the active DMT in these leaves is not broken down in the stomach, and thus keeps the Ayahuasca active. Not surprising then that Banisteriopsis is very popular among shamens.

Use of Banisteriopsis caapi

Take 50 to 150 grams of shredded Banisteriopsis caapi Trueno, in combination with Chacruna or Chaliponga, for example. Let the mixture simmer for a few hours, until the liquid becomes concentrated and a small amount of the concentrated drink remains.
Banisteriopsis caapi is also used by some people in combination with other psychedelics, usually with psilocybin mushrooms. The effect of the mushrooms with the B. caapi is longer and (much) stronger, according to these people. The experience will often take off in another direction. Taking into account other factors, people use 25 grams or more.

Detailed explanation of making a concentrated drink:

Bring the mixture of ground plants to a boil in a sufficient quantity of water. When the liquid boils, set the fire to a minimum. Let stand more hours if desired; leave one for 4 hours and the other for 12 hours. In between water should be added, so that all the active substances dissolve in the water. When the infusion of plants is complete, filter out the plant residue with a T-shirt or something similar. Boil until the water is reduced to a drinkable quantity.

To accelerate the extraction process in certain recipes, vinegar or lemon juice is added.  A dose of 25 to 150 grams of ground Banisteriopsis Caapi should be used, depending on the purpose, type and quality of the experience desired, as well as the sensitivity of the user. When used in a mixture with ayahuasca or a brew which also contains DMT, a lower dose of between 50 and 100 grams is used, and 100 to 150 grams for a high dose.
