Alicia anisopetala | Black vine | Trueno Thunder | 30x Extract Paste
We make this extract paste with clean water and freshly harvested Alicia anisopetala. For every kilogram of paste, we use 30 kg of fresh vine. By using freshly cut 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. We then slowly boil the liquid until it becomes this highly concentrated, water soluble paste. This is the pure gold of the plant!
Many shamans consider this liana to be the most potent of all ethnobotanical vines (more than Banisteriopsis caapi and Banisteriopsis muricata) and recommend it only for experienced users. The vine also goes by other names such as: Ayahuasca Thunder, Black ayahuasca, and Ayahuasca Trueno.

The genus Alicia is part of the same family as other ayahuasca woody vines (Malpighiaceae). At present, there are only two species recognized as belonging to this genus: A. anisopetala and A. macrodisca. The former species anisopetala is commonly known as ‘Black vine’ and is likely to be mistaken for black B. Caapi.
It is said to have some outstanding chemical properties such as tryptamines and beta carbolines. Other sources claim that there has been no trace found of carbolines and alkaloids. But further research is yet to reveal all of its healing and relaxing chemical properties.
