caapi

Lot of good variety of caapi out there (whole & ground), even liquid & dry extracts.

When googling caapi extracts, noticed as well there are lab-tested standardized ones now out there with good reviews. Not many dry extracts out there (most are in liquid form). The lab-tested ones had tested for equal amounts of tetrahydroharmine to harmine, they have a very long history of indigenous use.

Found this interesting from Erowid, lot of great studies by Callaway.
