history of caapi

Post by eva » Thu Nov 23, 2017 8:29 am

Found this very interesting article from Gayle Highpine on the history of Caapi, very good read, thought would share if you have not seen it already:

http://www.ayahuasca.com/amazon/botany- ... ayahuasca/

p.s. really love caapi and noticed that sacredforest botanicals site reads they reopen end of Nov with their quality dry standardized Hawaiian caapi extracts (nine dollars) Their extract will only dissolve into 1 ounce or so of very hot water when about 150mg of citric acid (crushed vitamin c) is added and stirred for a minute. Their extracts have equal amounts of harmine and thh with over 40 five-star reviews, and Maya has plenty of their quality liquid extracts. Extracts can be a godsend as chopping and boiling caapi takes much time and effort. Caapi has a long ancient history of reverence as "the teacher plant"...and Maya has plenty of their liquid extracts.

The paintings by Pablo Amaringo are very inspirational, recommend his book.

p.s. keep an eye on auction sites and/or Maya a couple times a year for good ornamental Hawaiian psychotria which is twice as good as ornamental Peruvian Psychotria. Caapi & Psychotria only (no rue or barks) is what is dreamed of strictly by the Shuar Indian, UDV, and Santo Daime. It is safe and traditional ornamentally.
