The famous green Rapé of the Apurinese people. It uses locally harvested plants from the forest called Awiry. This rapé does not use ash.
You pronounce Rapé as Ha-Pee. It is a sacred shamanic “medicine” that has been used by healers of indigenous tribes for thousands of years and is an essential part of their tribal culture and history. Rapé is a complex mixture of pulverized plants.
Rapé also means “dust of the ancients.” It has been used by various indigenous tribes, including the Matses and the Huni Kuin Indians (kaxinawás) for thousands of years.
Rapé is ideal for ceremonies such as Ayahuasca or other jungle medicines. It can also be used in everyday life as an incense.
Rapé contains tobacco, and therefore nicotine. The main danger of rapé is the nicotine derived from the tobacco plant. The addictiveness of this substance is often underestimated. People who have quit smoking for years and start taking rapé can unknowingly become addicted to the nicotine again. After all, at first you think you are consuming something completely different from a cigarette. Yet the substance that made you addicted to cigarettes is still present in rapé. So don’t underestimate this drug.
Do not combine it with other drugs or medications, and certainly not with MAOIs.
People who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use this drug.
Do not use it if you have to drive or operate heavy machinery.
