-It can be mixed with the leaves of the Psychotria viridis (chacruna) leaf or chagropangaor mimosa tenuiflora rootbark; dimethyltryptamine (DMT)-containing ​plant species. It has been reported that some psychoactive effects can be felt from consuming the ayahuasca vine alone. The hallucinogen DMT will be digested in the stomach and remain inactive without the inclusion of a monoamine oxidase ​inhibitor ​(MAOI) ​such as Banisteriopsis caapi.[2] Therefore, ​combination of both a MAOI-containing ​plant and DMT-containing ​substance is necessary for full hallucinogenic effects. The resulting brew is known by a number ​of different names (see below).[3]+
