Psychotria cv. – Superior Cultivars (plant)

Rated 0 out of 5
(be the first to review)



Psychotria viridis and Psychotria carthagenensis are used in the traditional psychoactive medicine Ayahuasca; a brew of Banisteriopsis caapi (occasionally alone but most often with Psychotria viridis or other DMT containing plants such as Diplopterys cabrerana) as the base and other plants are sometimes added, depending on the problems and conditions of the patient that need to be examined.

Psychotria viridis contains dimethyltryptamine (DMT), a psychoactive substance found across the plant kingdom in many family, genera and thousands of species (large numbers of Australian Acacia species and other natives contain DMT), often only as trace amounts.

For many years I have been breeding new cultivars of Psychotria, after first creating an interspecific hybrid between Psychotria viridis and Psychotria carthagenensis (cv. Nexus). These hybrids have now been legally analysed in a research project, funded by Herbalistics, leading to the discovery of a number of higher alkaloid cultivars. We are now in the process of propagating 15 of these hybrids for sale and will replace the old hybrid pages with this simple single page.
