What Is Vinho da Jurema?

Vinho da Jurema (Yurema), which contains Dimethyltryptamine (DMT), is a psychoactive drink known from Northern Brazil and commonly made from the root bark of the Mimosa hostilis plant (also called Mimosa tenuiflora) or from some other Mimosa varieties.

There are several applications of Jurema. One of the more down-to-earth uses is a tea or syrup made of the leaves and stem of the plant to treat tooth pain, cough, or bronchitis. Another application for physical healing is to use extracts of the plant for wound healing.

Additionally, Vinho da Jurema is used as an entheogen, for instance, by the Jurema Cult (O Culto da Jurema) in Northeastern Brazil.

Although Jurema is not very psychoactive on its own, it shows similarities with the effects of Ayahuasca, but it’s still unknown how this works and if (and what) MAOI-containing plants are added to the brew.
