This tea contains stems of the ayahuasca plant, and leaves from another plant that naturally contain N,N-Dimethyltryptamine (aka “DMT”), according to the Ethnobotanical Stewardship Council, a nonprofit aimed at sustainable and safe use of traditional medicinal plants. When sipped during an ayahuasca ceremony, ayahuasca can lead to hallucinations, often involving death, family, and relationships. In fact, the word “ayahuasca” means “vine of the death” in Quechuan languages. People may participate in ayahuasca ceremonies several times over the course of a week, month, or other period of time.
