What it does ?
Although it contains a psychoactive component
(DMT), Ayahuasca cannot be considered and condemned as a classic drug of addictive and negative effects. On the contrary, we must ensure that its consumption never happens within a recreational or playful context.
The norm of its use places it within a ritual controlled context of sacred, spiritual and therapeutic characteristics that lead us to a process of deep introspection revealing both agreeable and suppressed experiences, for which the use within a recreational, playful or compulsive context is inadmissible.
The plants are called "hallucinogenic" by the Western, American and European science an inappropriate term. "Hallucination" means cheating of the senses, which is incorrect to define the main effect of these plants, which, on the contrary, generally consists of an Amplification of the senses and consciousness.
The vast majority of persons who consume it, indigenous settlers, shamans, healers, psychologists, therapists, drug-addicted patients, spiritual searchers, religious people and interested ones in general, do not consider this plant to be a drug, but a tool for introspection, meditation, therapy, inner cleansing, auto- exploration or a sacrament.
