Ayahuasca - Pharmacology & Drug Interactions

Ayahuasca is unique among psychedelic sacraments in that it requires an interaction between two plants to obtain its full effects. This interaction also introduces potential for adverse reactions if the wrong foods or drugs are taken concurrently or in close proximity to drinking ayahuasca. The purpose of this talk is to describe what’s known about ayahuasca’s pharmacology, outline adverse food and drug combinations with ayahuasca, and provide an overview of current clinical data supporting treatment of mental illness with ayahuasca.
