I am very curious about the amazonian shamanic brew ayahuasca. SWIM wishes to inquire of other SWIMers' favorite recipes. SWIM hears authentic ayahuasca must have banisteropsis caapi vine. It matters not which DMT containing plant is added...to be ayahuasca there must be banisteropsis caapi. While I want to have an authentic ayahuasca experience, SWIM hears that it is the harmala and other MAOI's in the caapi vine that promotes the nausea and 'the purge'. I am somewhat wary of vomiting during the come-on of a psychotic experience. I am mostly curious about DMT, which I have read can be experienced minus the caapi vine if SWIM were to just use mimosa hostilisis as mimosa has phytoindols which makes the DMT orally active without MAOI's. Would SWIM be able to experience a DMT vision with mimosa hostilis without the reknowned "purge"? SWIM also wonders if the purge is an important part of the ayahuasca experience. Does it play some role in the visions?
