Welcome to Psilohuasca.com! Welcome home to your true being.

This homepage is all about the possibility of using Psychedelic Drugs as a tool to experience the nondual nature of reality, your true self.

Why then Psilohuasca?

If you have found this place you may have heard about Ayahuasca, the psychedelic brew of the Amazonian jungle.

It is made of two main plants- a vine, Banisteriopsis Caapi, also called Ayahuasca itself and a perennial shrub, Psychotria viridis, called Chacruna. The shrub contains DMT (N,N-Dimethyltryptamine), which is a psychedelic tryptamine, found endogenously in the human brain. It is normally controlled by an enzyme called Mono Amino Oxidase. Now the Vine contains Harmine/Hamaline which act as Mono Amino Oxidase Inhibitors- therefore orally ingested DMT becomes psychedelically active.

Since the Vine, the MAO inhibitor, being also called Ayahuasca itself, the word “Psilohuasca” is used to describe a combination of Psilocin containing mushrooms and a MAO inhibiting plant source.

Maybe some of you out there don’t know much about “magic mushrooms”, so I am going to tell you a few scientific facts.

Psilocin is the active tryptamine alkaloid which is the reason for the psychedelic effects of the mushroom. Psilocybin, which is also present, is the phosphoryloxy version of Psilocin. However, through the stomach acid it is being broken down to Psilocin.

Psilocin is actually nothing else but DMT with an additional hydroxyl group on the 4th position of the indole ring (4-Hydroxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine). It can be seen as “orally active DMT”, since you can simply eat the mushrooms and they will reveal their psychedelic effects. An MAO inhibitor is not needed (as with DMT).

See below for a molecule comparison:

So why then add the Mono Amino Oxidase inhibitor? If you want to experience the full potential of Psilocin by taking a high dose (70-100mg), but don’t want to eat large amounts of Psilocybe mushrooms, then the addition of an MAO inhibitor is the key. Somehow the MAO Enyzme breaks down a good amount of the Psilocin before it hits the brain. By adding Harmine/Harmaline this action is partially inhibited. Harmine and Harmaline also have tranquilizing and anti-depressive abilities which help with nervousness and anxiety before the experience.

Mushrooms are the main ancient source for spiritual experiences, our European ancestors have used the mushrooms for spiritual reasons for thousands of years before they vanished through the prosecution of the Catholic Church. 

The oldest religious cult was found to be a mushroom one, The painting below from the caves of the Tassili Plateau in Northern Algeria is dated around 5000 years B.C..

Why not use the psychedelic mushrooms for all the reasons so many people take Ayahuasca for in these days? There are users of mushrooms, but in our society they are sadly much more seen as a party or recreational drug. That is also the way the media treats them, since they are still illegal almost anywhere, although you can find them yourself in nature all over the world. Or you can grow them very easily yourself at home, with a little bit more effort than growing plants.  

Although both is illegal also in the Netherlands, a loophole in the latest drug act excluded mushroom sclerotia (a hardened form of mycelium, which is still legal, too). So called Smartshops are still allowed to sell sclerotia, calling them ‘Philosopher Stones’ or ‘Truffels’ for marketing reasons. Just like mushroom mycelium itself, the sclerotia do contain Psilocybin and Psilocin.

The best source for the natural MAO inhibitors Harmine and Harmaline are the seeds of the perennial plant Peganum Harmala, better known as Syrian Rue. These seeds are not only legal almost anywhere, they are also very cheap, since the plant produces a lot of them. Together with a Peganum a typical dose of Psilocin/Psilocybin can show effects up to five times the amount taken.

Instead of cutting a huge piece out of a living Vine and then having to extract its active ingredients, as little as 3grams of the powdered Syrian Rue seeds can be used by simply ingesting them.

The main differences between Ayahuasca and Psilohuasca are:

  • Psilohuasca is 3-4 hours longer active, lasting between 6-9hours until you’re “back to zero”.
  • The MAOi is taken 1 hour before the Psilocin, so you feel the tranquilizing and calming effects of the Harmine/Harmaline before the ingestion of the mushrooms and this helps to reduce anxiety. Also the first effects of the Psilocin can start very soon, much faster than with an Ayahuasca brew (which contains both- the MAOi and the DMT).
  • There is usually no nausea present with Psilohuasca, due to the very small amounts used. Sometimes little nausea may occur through overly intense fear. The fact that there is no nausea makes it much more pleasant to give into the experience.

So why create a homepage about this?

I personally learned a lot through the mushrooms during almost 25years of experience, especially from the combination with Peganum Harmala seeds. And I always had the feeling I need to share them. I have to say though that, even though from growing them I had them always available, I did not use them very often. But if I had a psychedelic experience, I always went into unknown territory by increasing dosages. 

This is how I ended up experiencing a state of total release from everything- what I call a “non-dual experience”. Or what is also known as “spiritual awakening”. This happened together and simultaneously with my wife and therefore we were able to realize that it actually wasn’t just an illusion. This is eight years ago. What I learned in those years and how it changed me, I will tell you more on the “About me” page. 

Another purpose of this homepage is to spread awareness that the plants needed for Ayahusca brews are meanwhile exported all over the globe and extensively cut down in the Amazonian forests. There are already studies being done, that if it will be going on like this, the plants will soon be on the red list of endangered species. 

Not to forget that the ingestion of a full extraction (as a brew), including all the sickening chemicals in those plants, gives the person using them unneeded suffering and often prevents the full effects to take place, due to an early purging of the brew. Crystalline DMT, Harmine and Harmaline are not nausea inducing itself- only the Ayahuasca brew is.

Are you also offering sessions?

Driven by the wish to share my wisdom on using psychedelics to trigger a spiritual awakening, I started offering group retreats in 2013 in the Netherlands. There I offered not only Psilohuasca, but also 5MeO DMT in the natural form of Bufo Alvarius Toad Secretion. More about the Toads living at my place and the powerful 5MeO DMT, which they create through an enzyme in their system, can be found on the 5MeO/Toad page

In 2014 I also started private 1:1 and 1:2 session with either one psychedelic, since there was the demand for this. From my experience with both approaches to work with people and these potent psychedelic drugs, I decided to give up the group work in 2017 (more information on the retreats page). For maximum benefit and safety I am only working in individual sessions with only one of the two psychedelics now. More information can be found on the Sessions page.

Everything I share is only my individual perspective and only based on my experiences. I am not saying that psychedelics are the key to enlightenment. I will explain further on the Sessions page what my approach is exactly and how I work with the mentioned very potent psychedelics.

Thank you for taking the time to read.
With Love. Namaste,
Oliver
