Banisteriopsis Caapi Leaves
Banisteriopsis caapi, also known as ayahuasca, caapi or yagé, is a South American plant traditionally used to prepare ayahuasca, a decoction with a long history of entheogenic uses as a medicine and “plant teacher” among the indigenous peoples of the Amazon Rainforest. It contains harmine, harmaline, and tetrahydroharmine, all of which are both beta-carboline harmala alkaloids and MAOIs. The MAOIs in B. caapi allow the primary psychoactive compound (which is introduced from the other primary ingredient in ayahuasca), to be orally active. Alkaloids are present in all parts of the plant and while not widely known, the leaves are reported to have a higher alkaloid content by weight than the vine.
