Indians from the eastern Amazon used drinks made from the root to induce shamanic states, but its use decreased in the 20th century as indigenous cultures were destroyed and ayahuasca became popularized, most notably as a ritualistic inebriant by several synchronistic (blending African, Indo-American and Christian ideas) churches in Brazil.
A jurema cult that consumed drinks made from mimosa was described in 1788 and was thought to have died out but is becoming popular once again. Jurema is also used by Afro-Brazilian cults of Candomblé and Macumba.
The trunk and (especially) root bark contains the visionary tryptamine DMT, and several saponins that are biologically active.
A pack contains 10 grams of shredded mimosa.
Mimosa tends to be mixed with the MAO inhibitor Peganum harmala to create an ayahuasca analogue, for which 5-20 grams is used.
Taken on its own, as a cold water infusion, higher doses are needed (25-45 grams). Simply soak in water and drink.
Not for use by under-18s, or when pregnant or nursing. Do not use in combination with alcohol, medicines or other stimulants, or if using MAO inhibitors, anti-depressants or other psycho-stimulants. Store in a cool, dry place and of course, out of reach of children.
