The Science Of Ayahuasca, Explained

Ayahuasca is a tea brewed from a mixture of Amazonian plants.

The principal ingredient of the tea is Banisteriopsis caapi, also called ayahuasca.

The secondary ingredient is usually either chagropanga (Diplopterys cabrerana) or chacruna (Psychotria viridis), both of which contain relatively high amounts of DMT, a psychedelic substance. . .
