Blend Caapi & Chuchuhuasi paste| 50% Banisteriopsis caapi & 50% Maytenus laevii- Maytenus krukovii | 30:1 Extract
We make this B. Caapi & Chuchuhuasi paste with natural spring water and freshly harvested B. Caapi and Maytenus krukovii. For every kilogram of B. Caapi & Chuchuhuasi paste we use 30 kg of fresh B. Caapi and Maytenus krukovii. By using freshly harvested vine, we preserve many of the ethereal oils and properties that otherwise get lost in the drying process. We slow boil the vines for many hours with plenty of filtering steps along the way to ensure a clean end product. We then slowly boil the liquid until it becomes our famous B. Caapi & Chuchuhuasi paste. This is the pure gold of the plant!
This B. Caapi & Chuchuhuasi paste is water soluble.

Master ‘Plant Teacher’ Blend
Many tribes regard Banisteriopsis caapi as a ‘plant of the gods’. Known as a Master ‘Plant Teacher’, this giant woody vine grows in the lush Amazon rainforest of Perú, Ecuador, Colombia and Brazil, with many amazing properties that have drawn worldwide attention. It belongs to the Malpighiaceae family and has been traditionally used by countless South American tribes inhabiting the Amazon for thousands of years. Known most commonly for its healing power, this vine is richly steeped in cultural mythology and tradition. Although it is hold in high regard internationally it is still considered to be a very mysterious plant, arguably one of the most fascinating and culturally rich plants on earth.
Maytenus krukovii is also regarded as a ‘plant teacher’ in Peruvian shamanism for the strength and protection it confers. It is one of the ‘palos’ or trees included in ‘la dieta’, the shamanic diet, which forms the basis of shamanic training in the Ucayali region of Perú. In a traditional setting Chuchuhuasi (or Chuchuhuasa) is one of many possible additives to the ayahuasca brew.
