BANISTERIOPSIS CAAPI – BRAZIL – YELLOW VINE (OURINHOS)
Banisteriopsis caapi is a South American vine from the Malpighiaceae family. NLNaturals provides high-quality Caapi from trusted sources.
Each tribe has a unique origin myth related to the liana. Most of the names mean “vine of the souls” or “vine of the dead”, as it is believed that the deceased ascend to heaven on the lianas. This ties in well with the common motif of the “World Tree” or “Axis Mundi”. The roots are the underworld, the trunk the middle world or kingdom of man, and the canopy is said to be symbolic of the etheric kingdom. Many have a story of how an ancient ancestor received the liana from a god.
Ourinhos means ‘little gold’ and this variety is especially favored among indigenous church communities. Mainly the Santo Daime religion, which was founded by Mestre Irineu, works with this caapi species.
