    This plant is used by tribal people in the Amazon basin. It is a powerful instantaneous hallucinogen.
    The bark resin of these trees is used to prepare hallucinogenic snuffs in northwestern Brazil by boiling, drying and pulverizing it.
    Orally Virola elicits a 4 to 6 hour Ayahuasca like trip, nasally the experience of virola resembles that of Yopo

    The snuff acts rapidly and violently, "effects include excitement, numbness of the limbs, twitching of facial muscles, nausea, hallucinations, and finally a deep sleep; macroscopic is frequent and enters into Waika beliefs about the spirits resident in the drug."
    The peak effects last about thirty minutes, during which time the user experiences color and size changes and dizziness.
    The after-effects may last several hours and may include buoyant feelings and pleasant stimulation.

    Virola contains both DMT and an MAO-inhibitor. This allows it to be orally active as a paste or as a nasally absorbed substance.

    An excessive dose may cause headache and confusion during the first five minutes and may cause nausea on a full stomach. Physical pain or discomfort may be amplified during the first ten minutes.
    Not recommended for use under 18. If pregnant, nursing or taking a prescription drug, consult your health care professional. Do not exceed recommended dose. Consumption may impair ability to drive or operate heavy equipment. Not recommended for consumption with alcoholic beverages.
