Cacao – Huni Kuin

Theobroma cacao is the scientific name of the cacao tree, and in Portuguese it is called cacau. It is native to the Amazon basin from where it spread to other parts of the Americas and from there around the world. The name of the genus comes from Greek, and means food of the gods. Theobromine is an alkaloid present in cacao and is a vasodilator, diuretic and heart stimulant.

Mainly the Huni Kuin, but also other tribes, have used the bark and wood from this native cacao variety to burn ashes for their Rapé Snuff.

This very strong Sacred Medicine is blended with those cacao ashes. This beautiful recipe is from the Huni Kuin tradition. Medicine with cacao ashes is usually a reddish-colored medicine. This particular one is extra strong, a medicine with fewer ashes that has an earthy grounding character. It is made with part Sabia and part native Moi.
