The Chaliponga plant stores the alkaloids N,N-DMT, 5-MeO-DMT, and N-methyltetrahydro-beta-carboline in its leaves and stems. DMT is a psychedelic chemical that occurs naturally in both plants and animals. It is used as an admixture to Ayahuasca and found in the Amazon, in the countries of Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
20 Grams of Chaliponga Diplopterys Cabrerana vines.
Use 5 grams for a low dose, 10 grams for a normal dose, and 15 grams for a high dose. Making the Ayahuasca brew is quite difficult, and beginners mostly do not succeed in brewing an effective, shamanistic drink. Recipes can be found here.
Diplopterys is favored over Chacruna, because it is 5- 10 times stronger and less can be used.
After oral administration, its dose-related hallucinogenic effects first occur after 30–60 minutes, peak at 60–120 minutes and resolve by 240 minutes.
On it’s one Chaliponga has no effects on its one and needs to be combined with an MAOi to let the N,N-DMT present in the Chaliponga leaves to cross the blood–brain barrier without being degraded. When combined with Banisteriopsis Caapi to make Ayahuasca the effects are:
- Mind-altering entheogenic effects
Chaliponga contains DMT and 5-Me0-DMT. The leaves of D. cabrerana can contain 0.17 to 1.75% N,N-DMT, along with some 5-MeO-DMT and 5-HO-DMT (bufotenine) (C. Raetsch 2005).
“The leaves of either plant are not psychoactive if eaten or smoked due to the relatively low alkaloid content and rapid breakdown of alkaloids by monoamine oxidase, a natural human enzyme. In the Ayahuasca preparation, beta -carbolines present in the harmala alkaloids temporarily inhibit monoamine oxidase function, rendering the tryptamine alkaloids orally active.” (Schultes, R.E. and R.F. Raffauf. 1995. The Healing Forest: medicinal and toxic plants of the northwest Amazonia, Dioscorides Press, Portland, Or. ISBN 0-931146-14-3)
“Ayahuasca induces a psychedelic, visionary state of mind and is used for medical and religious purposes. Shamans may use it to inspire diagnoses. At South American shamanic ceremonies people gather to take ayahuasca and sing themselves into a collective trance” Plant Poisons and Traditional Medicines, Jeffrey K. Aronson, in Manson’s Tropical Infectious Diseases (Twenty-third Edition), 2014
The Chaliponga plant originally grows in the Amazon basin of South-America, mostly in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. it is also know as Chagropanga or Diplopterys Cabrerana. The Chaliponga, or oco yajé, is psychedelic plant, that contains DMT. It has lots of shamanistic, healing properties, and that’s why it is a common ingredient for the Ayahuasca drinks. Consuming the ayahuasca brew works hypnotic and hallucinogenic. This is done in combination with plants like the Banisteriopsis Caapi. The combination of the B. Caapi and the D. Cabrerana is called the ‘marriage of Power and Light’. It works visionary mythological and very intensely shamanistic. The B. Caapi helps to make the DMT in the Chaliponga orally active. More information on Ayahuasca and its use through history can be found here.
