Banisteriopsis caapi (Peru) - Whole Yellow Vine
OUT OF STOCK - DO NOT ORDER!
Some plants are considered plants of the gods, for their powers are laid to supernatural forces residing in their tissues, and they were Divine gifts to the earliest people on Earth.
Banisteriopsis caapi is one of the great and sacred flora of the world. It grows throughout the entire Amazon basin (Peru, Columbia, Ecuador, and Brazil). The use of this liana is deeply rooted in Amazonian mythology and philosophy, and countless plants of diverse families are often associated with it. Much remains to be learned about Banisteriopsis caapi, one of the most fascinating and culturally powerful plants on earth.
Probably the most common variety, Yellow or "Cielo" (Sky) Caapi is widely cultivated and is associated with the mestizo curanderos of modern Amazonia.
Although this plant is completely legal in all its forms, we offer this B. caapi as an herbarium specimen only. Many treasure simply having the energy of sacred plants in their meditation spaces, and B. caapi is perhaps one of the most powerful. It is not sold for human consumption.
