Ayahuasca is an Amazonian plant-based brew made from the Banisteriopsis Caapi vine, Charcuna leaves, and other plants. It has been used for centuries in traditional ceremonies and healing rituals by shamans and healers, who believe it offers spiritual and physical healing. The main active ingredient of ayahuasca is dimethyltryptamine (DMT), an entheogenic compound which has psychoactive and hallucinogenic properties. Ayahuasca is known to have a "Mother" or "Grandmother" energy and is known for its powerful effects. It is also said to be able to open up deeper levels of understanding and connection to the natural world and to the spiritual realm.
