10g/100g of dried, organic Chaliponga leaves.
This DMT rich herb from the Amazonian basin is often used for the brewing of Ayahuasca.
This plant is related to the coffee plant and is stronger than, but similar to Chacruna. Chaliponga leaves are bigger than Chacruna leaves and it contains more active substances, which means you will need less raw material to achieve the desired effects.
Chaliponga is a "classic" Ayahuasca ingredient.
- contains NN-DMT and 5-Meo-DMT, but has little or no psychedelic effects on its own
- Can be combined with MAO inhibitors* to create Ayahuasca
- *traditionally combined with Banisteriopsis Caapi, or Peganum harmala
20g is seen as one very strong dose for one person when combined with 5-10g of Banisteriopsis Caapi extract, for beginners 5-10g of Chaliponga are more appropriate.
How to prepare Ayahuasca with Chaliponga*
*The following information is purely educational and must not be abused to break the law or put your own safety at risk. Read full disclaimer at the bottom.
In order to create a psychedelic brew from Chaliponga leaves root bark, you will need to extract and make available the DMT it contains. This is traditionally achieved by cooking them for several hours.
The following recipe is for 50g of Chaliponga, which we will combine in the last step with 25g of Banisteriopsis Caapi resin, to create 5 strong, or 10 medium doses of Ayahuasca.
In order to prepare your own Ayahuasca at home, you will first need to prepare the Chaliponga, then add the Caapi resin at the end.
Step 1: Weigh and shred the Chaliponga leaves
To get a maximum effect from your Yahe, first shred the dry leaves using a coffee grinder or blender. If you want to add a personal note, you can also get a mortar and pestle and apply some muscle to hand-grind the powder even finer.
Once you have achieved a fine powder, your Yahe is ready for the next step.
Step 2: Cook Chaliponga for 3 hours, with apple vinegar
Cooking will allow you to extract the DMT from the Mimosa leaves and get it into the water. Bring 1.5L of water to the point of boiling and add 20ml of apple vinegar.
(It is not recommended to replace the vinegar with lemon juice, which tastes horrendous)
Add the 50g Chaliponga powder to the simmering water and keep it at a low boil for 3 hours. Stick around to make sure there is always enough water in the mixture. You'll want to allow more water to evaporate towards the end of the first 3 hour period, you'll do the same process with the same leaf powder twice more and add all the water together at the end.
Step 3: Filter out the solid leaf powder through fabric, squeeze it out and repeat step 2 twice
Keep the water! Don't just pour it out, catch it in a pot, squeeze out the Yahe pulp as much as possible and use your cooking pot the same way as in step 2, twice over.
This will amount to a total cooking time of 9 hours, with 3 resulting servings of Chaliponga "tea" that contains the DMT we are after.
Step 4: Reduce and add Banisteriopsis Caapi
Put all 3 servings into one pot and start reducing the amount, by putting it on low heat and allowing the water to evaporate. You will want your 50g of Chaliponga to result in about 300ml of brew.
Once you have simmered down the brew to the desired intensity, add the Caapi extract to the hot tea. Stir at low heat for about 15 minutes, or until the Caapi is completely dissolved.
You should end up with about 300ml of fine, very potent Ayahuasca. Divided by 10, this results in enough Ayahuasca for 10 servings of 30ml.
