More about Caapi Rapé
Rapé (pronounced “ha-peh” or “rapay”) means "dust of the ancients" and it has been used for thousands of years by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon. Although the herbs vary from rapé to rapé, the main ingredient is always the powdered tobacco leaf of the Nicotiana Rustica. When used in combination with an intention, rapé can be a powerful tool for realizing our dreams.
About the ingredient caapi
Banisteriopsis Caapi is a vine that grows in the Amazon and is mainly found in Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia and Colombia. The vines of the Caapi tree contain both the alkaloids Harmaline and Harmine, which act as MAO-inhibitors and can enhance the effect of other psychedelics, such as magic truffles. This Rapé Caapi formula is made with leaves of the Caapi tree.
How is Caapi Rapé used and what are its effects?
The traditional way to use rapé is when someone else (usually a shaman) blows the powder into your nose with a tepi. However, you can also self-administer rapé with a v-shaped wooden pipe called kuripe. More information about rapé.
When Caapi Rapé is used on its own it has a dreamy effect. In combination with ayahuasca or magic truffles it can provide a stronger psychedelic experience.
Warning combination MAO-inhibitors
Use of MAO-inhibitors carries many risks! Caapi contains MAO-inhibiting ingredients that require caution and discipline. In short: you must understand that MAOIs not only enhance the effects of the substances you want to take, but also those of all other potentially harmful substances in your body, such as caffeine, THC, nicotine and tyramine. Combinations with certain substances can be very dangerous, and with stimulants such as ephedrine or amphetamines can even be fatal by overtaxing the heart. Therefore, always read our detailed explanation before experimenting with MAOIs, and be sure to check our list of substances you should not use for at least 24 hours before and 24 hours after using MAOIs.
