Ayahuasca is a psychoactive tea that originates from the Amazon region. Psychoactive substances affect the brain and cause people to experience changes in their mood, thinking, and behavior. Ayahuasca (the “vine of the spirits” in Quechua) is a psychedelic brew traditionally used by Amerindians that reached Brazilian urban centers around 1930, where it has since been used as a sacrament in syncretic churches such as the Santo Daime, the União do Vegetal (UDV), and Barquinha. More recently, the use of ayahuasca has Top 7 Ayahuasca Documentaries expanded to the United States and Europe (Labate & Cavnar, 2011). There are numerous recipes that may be used to prepare ayahuasca, although it is most frequently produced by the decoction of the bark of a liana named Banisteriopsis caapi (B. caapi) with the leaves of a DMT-containing plant, Psychotria viridis (Ott, 1994). Indigenous traditions consider the B. caapi vine to be the main ingredient of ayahuasca and name the brew after the native species (eg, ayahuasca, natem, yagé, nixi pae). In research studies, it is important to keep in mind the potential diversity of components of ayahuasca (Brierley & Davidson, 2012), since it has come from a number of different plants and cultivars collected at different times.
