Banisteriopsis Caapi 30x Yellow Paste

We make this paste with only clean water and freshly harvested Banisteriopsis Caapi 30x Yellow Paste. When we use fresh vine the end-product is better than when using dried vine. Accompanied by local indigenous people, we slow boil the Caupuri ayahuasca for many hours (3 x 8 hours). After each 8-hour period we filter the liquid. We then boil down the clear liquid until it becomes a thick paste. This is the pure gold of this plant.

Our Banisteriopsis Caapi 30x Yellow Paste comes from the land of a Quechua family in the Rio Napo area in Ecuador. When Wouter and Laura met them, they felt a mutual connection. The family invited them onto their land, a few hours from where Wouter and Laura live. The family are the keepers (from a long line) of a sacred ceremonial cave with a waterfall inside. On their ancestral land around the cave they cultivate and harvest the vines sustainably. They replant ten vines for each plant they harvest. The vines all dry in the sun and have no further treatment.

Native Use

Many tribes regard Banisteriopsis caapi as a plant of the gods. Banisteriopsis caapi 30x yellow paste is known as a Master Plant Teacher. This giant woody vine of the Malpighiaceae family grows in the lush Amazon rainforest of Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Brazil. It has many interesting characteristics and properties which have attracted attention around the world. Many South American tribes from the Amazon region have used it for thousands of years.

People know it best for its healing powers. This vine is closely linked to cultural mythology and tradition. Although it is revered around the world, it is still considered to be a very mysterious plant. It is arguably one of the most fascinating and culturally rich plants on earth.

In the past, and in some remote areas of the jungle today, local people make a tea from the vine and use it to treat a wide variety of illnesses. The decoction can also be massaged into the skin. They blow the powder through a bird windpipe into the lungs of young Waorani boys. They say it gives the child powerful lungs and the strength to become a great hunter.

Some people are interested in the Banisteriopsis caapi 30x paste in combination with other plants such as chacruna, bobinsana, guayusa, mimosa, acacia, chacropanga, manaca etc.


The vine has a distinctive appearance, with a circular twisting shape with many branches and leaves. They grow to an average of 40 ft in height! The leaves of the caapi are opposite, green, oval-shaped, pointed and smooth. The flowers are smallish (12-14mm in diameter and 2.5-3mm long) with a white to pinkish colour when in full bloom. They are indeed a special and rare sight to see.  Its small fan-like seeds are green in colour when fresh and fade to a brown when dried. It thrives in humus-rich and moist soil with lots of water, such as in warm tropical environments.

Scientific information

The deep brown stems contain various chemical components such as harmine, harmaline and tetrahydroharmine, and they are classified as MAOI’s. Scientific analysis shows that the vines also contain several alkaloids. Scientific analysis reports the vines to have approximately 0.11-0.83% beta-carboline, the majority of which is harmaline and tetrahydroharmaline. The vine also contains several alkaloids.

As the exploration of the traditional use of Ayahuasca grew, it became known for its telepathic powers. Initially the psychoactive alkaloid was called telepathine, but people now know it as harmaline. When people use this root on its own, it produces mood-enhancing and other effects.
