This small tree, also known as cedro ajua, huapa,

pucuna huapa Cblowpipe huapa"), or sacha cacao

CCforest cacao"), provides a resin that is used in the

manufacture of snuff. It may be psychoactive.

Active substances have not yet been detected (Ott


The Amazonian Indians (Venezuela, Colombia,

Peru, Brazil) produce a snuff from Iryanthera

macrophylla (Benth.) Warb. that may be psychoactive.

One analysis found 5-MeO-DMT in this

plant material (Schultes 1985, 131); later studies

have been unable to confirm this (Ott 1993,409*).

The Bora and Witoto formerly used Iryanthera

ulei Warb. as an oral hallucinogen. 5-MeO-DMT

has also been found in the bark of this plant.

Iryanthera longiflora Ducke is said to be a

hallucinogen as well (Davis and Yost 1983, 186*).
