Here we can collect information regarding different admixtures. Feel free to contribute with any info. If any particular admixture grows too large in information, we can move into separate thread.

Ayahuasca admixtures

Psychotria viridis often called Chacruna, and Diplopterys cabrerana, also known as Chaliponga, and their locally recognized varieties and possible related species, are the most common admixtures to ayahuasca. They both contain DMT as the main alkaloid. There is very little information on possible misidentifications under the 'common' names of chaliponga and chacruna, as well as on the locally defined varieties which are not recognized yet by botanists and that may or may not have a unique alkaloid profile. Nevertheless there are also several other unrelated plants which may be added to ayahuasca for different purposes.

Below is a list of the many other plants known to be added to ayahuasca. Marked with * are known to be psychoactive. (Ott, 1994; Mckenna et al 1995 apud Da Luz 1996)

1- Diplopterys cabrerana

DMT-Nexus thread: Is there 5-MeO-DMT in D. cabrerana ? (including GC-MS analysis showing DMT is main alkaloid, with no sign of 5-MeO-DMT)

Alkaloid content in literature:
Leaves: 0.46% DMT, <0.01% NMT + 5-MeO-DMT + Bufotenine + MTHBC
Stems: 0.17% DMT, 0.003% 5-MeO-DMT, 0.003% MTHBC

(Agurell et al 1968 misidentified as B. rusbyana)

2- Psychotria viridis and other Psychotria spp.

Discussion for Psychotria viridis and other Psychotria spp has been moved here

3- Tabernaemontana sananho

A friend just came back from Peru and gifted me some coca leaves. Does anyone have any experience using them as an admixture? For some reason part of me thinks this wouldn't be a good idea.

Threenew potential admixture plants from the Malpighiaceae family, as suggested by nomenclatural work in the Overview of Ayahuasca Vine Nomenclature and Taxonomy thread:

Diplopterys lucida
Diplopterys peruviana
Diplopterys pubipetala

EDIT: Also, endlessness, Diplopterys involuta is apparently a synonym for Mezia includens. Not sure if there's any literature on phytochemistry for either name, just thought I'd plop it down as I just stumbled across it.

The brew I have been drinking lately has Caapi and chacruna plus:
Tcha'i (sometimes spelled different ways) which is a mescaline cactus the Shipbo add to the brew for stronger effects.

Pinot Blanco - to add a light and loving personality to the brew

Coca - same as above, plus adds its own wisdom....

I noticed Uchu Sanango higher in the list, but I noticed it didnt mention that Uchu Sanango contains some alkaloids similar to Iboga....

I also have heard of some retreat centers in Ecuador who combine San Pedro with Ayahuasca - small amounts of each.... Everyone I have talked to who tried it says they really love this mixture. Supposedly mescaline should be dangerous with MAOI's but I think that is more related to pharmaceutical MAOIs - Ayahuasca is a reversible MAOI, so many of the things dangerous with pharmaceuticals are fine with Ayahuasca (like bananas for example!).

If we arent talking just traditional but are also including modern admixtures, I think it is worth adding psilocybin mushrooms to the list - I havent tried it but a number of friends prefer to add this instead of DMT containing admixtures....

I thought (i coud be wrong) plain mescaline (extracted) was not a problem with MAOI but lots of cacti contain tyramin and others molecules that could interact.
