The Brazilian ayhuasca church, Santo Daime, holds that Banisteriopsis caapi, the primary component of ayahuasca, provides "force" to the tea, whereas Psychotria viridis, or chacruna, provides "light".
Psychotria is distributed in the warm and tropical regions of both hemispheres. They are low to tall shrubs or small trees, sometimes epiphytic. Approximately 1,200 species are described, of which about 800 are valid taxa. Classification of Psychotria species is very difficult, even for trained botanists. Skilled shamans often recognize "kinds" of chacruna which are indistinguishable to botanists.
Botanical Identification :
Psychotria is a large genus of shrubs and small trees found in tropical regions around the world (including about 1400 species, with perhaps 700 in the New World), and its taxonomy is somewhat complicated. Not surprisingly, several other New World tropical species are morphologically similar to Psychotria viridis, and at least some of these may also be used as admixtures in ayahuasca.
Psychotria viridis [Ruiz & Pav., Rubiaceae] can be recognized by a combination of features found on the vegetative portions of the plant, although reproductive structures provide conclusive identification for illustrations of the reproductive characters]. Psychotria viridis grows naturally in wet lowland tropical forests in Cuba and northern Central America through western and central South America; it appears to be most common in Amazonian Peru and Bolivia. Because the genus Psychotria includes a large number of morphologically similar species, and there are other genera of the same plant family that are similar.
A Shamanic "incense" often called ayahuasca or caapi is made from an infusion of the bark of the so-called "Spirit Vine", Banisteriopsis caapi and related species of tropical rainforest lianas, by many indigenous peoples of the Amazon River basin and northwestern South America. Ayahuasca contains several Shamanic "aromas", including harmine and harmaline, and is widely used in traditional medical rites and mystical and religious ceremonies as a purgative, a magic concoction, and for prophecy, diagnosis, and telepathy. Other plants are frequently added to the infusion to alter and/or enhance the "aroma"of the Banisteriopsis "incense burning experience". A commonly used admixture is another plant, which reportedly increases the "aroma" and duration of the ayahuasca "incense burning experience". "Shamanic aromas" are found in several plant species that grow in the same region as Banisteriopsis, including Psychotria viridis. Schultes and Hoffmann have detailed the botany, ethnobotany, and chemistry of ayahuasca and its common admixtures and Casale and Koles have detailed the forensic analysis of a typical sample.
