As we well know, not many of us know the importance of tobacco, much less what it is, and that includes the mapacho. To learn more about tobacco and mapacho I had to investigate and learn more about these consumable products. I had to research what makes people attractive about these tobacco and mapacho products. Why am I bothering to investigate all of this? To answer that question, I have to let you know that I have realized its importance and how it should be used correctly for personal consumption, for that we must first go back in our history and go to the origin of this wonderful product.
Tobacco was discovered at the end of the XV centuries by the character called Christopher Columbus, through the Indians of the Arawak tribe, in the Antilles (Los Aztecas), once in his power Columbus was spreading this wonderful product that was given to him by the Arawaks. Since then tobacco has become increasingly popular by characters such as: ABRAHAM LINCOLN; ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL, AMELIA AERHART, ALBERT EINSTEIN, Among many more. And today it is still a high-end consumer source for the user. On the other hand, tobacco spread in Europe, then it reached Russia, and in the seventeenth century it reached China, Japan and the west coast of Africa. But what interests us most is that tobacco originated in an area between Peru and Ecuador. And that is how it is all over the world today.
What is tobacco and where did it originate?Today it is clear that in our history there are many tribes where we realize that the first ceremonial object that they possessed was tobacco, before knowing the famous drink called today as ayahuasca, the use of tobacco for these tribes has been very fundamental given in their beliefs since tobacco is a spiritual plant that gave you healing powers, which could be used in various ways such as: smoking it, chewing it, snorting it, in juice, ingested, in eye drops and even in enemas that varied in different tribes Its smoke was believed to purify and bless. It was also used to diagnose disease and help with treatment.
The peoples of the Amazon used tobacco for recreational, medicinal and spiritual purposes that is why it is imagined that a large part of the tobacco has originated in America due to the great magnitude of tobacco that was prepared by the indigenous tribes, logically before the arrival of Europeans, since we are not very clear to this day, since currently throughout the world many cultures have manifested themselves with the same system that are found in the Amazon and therefore also tobacco.
When asked about the origin of their knowledge in medicinal and spiritual matters, the natives of the jungle will say that tobacco was the first spirit that communicated with human beings. The Tobacco plant has a strong and masculine spirit. It is like a grandfather who protects the energy body and always brings you to the present. It is a universal master plant that reaches all segments: fire, air, water and earth. It provides warmth and calms the waters, the emotions, somehow eliminating everything that is lethargic.
What is mapacho?
In our Amazon, psychedelic or other plants are very important in our history. The mapacho, also called Nocotina rustica, has been part of indigenous religious and spiritual rituals for centuries. Mapacho is believed to be the original tobacco species that was brought from America to Europe.The tobacco is much more potent, chemically complex and potentially hallucinogenic compared to the mapacho Nicotiana rustica, although the mapacho has a much stronger smell, but more pure than Nicotiana tabacum.
Mapacho is often used for its entheogenic purposes by shamans due to its high content of nicotine and beta-carbolines, including the alkaloids harmala harman and norharman. These alkaloids are also found in the Amazonian plant Banisteriopsis caapi, one of the base ingredients of ayahuasca infusion. They are MAO inhibitors that work with chemicals in the brain and increase the levels of different types of neurotransmitters (serotonin, dopamine, tyramine, and norepinephrine) to stimulate the central nervous system. This stimulation proves that both tobacco and mapacho have antidepressant effects and help relieve mental and physical tensions, similar to other psychedelic drugs, such as psilocybin and ayahuasca.
Effects of mapacho monkfish tobacco.
The mapacho is used in the culture of indigenous tribes such as Shipibo-conibo, Ashaninka, Kichua, Kaxinawa, Nu-nu, Yawanawa and Katukina. They ingest it in the form of a liquid infusion and through smoke. The spirit of the plant is believed to have healing and protective qualities.
Therefore, when you want to ingest the smoke of the mapacho by the shaman, you will begin to feel all the power and relief that this powerful ritual offers you. Which is no different with powdered snuff which can also be self-administered or blown into the nostrils by an experienced shaman, which is preferable. Because it is administered nasally, the effects are rapid and intense. If snuff is used in conjunction with other ceremonies, such as ayahuasca or kambo, it is said to also help detoxify the body, cleansing toxins and bacteria. After the cleansing process, a victim may experience side effects such as sweating, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Mapacho and snuff have numerous purported benefits, and their use serves many purposes, including:
- Improving the senses
