While Peruvian Torch is not as well known as San Pedro it's widely believed to be most powerful of the Trichocereus family. Sacred cacti have been used continuously for over 3,000 years in the Andean Mountains region. Peyote is considered one of the four principal deities of the Huichol religion and it's use dates back over 5,000 years. San Pedro is named after St Peter who holds the keys to heaven as the cactus is believed to allow one to reach heaven while still on earth.

Banisteriopsis Caapi Leaves

Description

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.
