The main ingredient is the wild tobacco plant (Nicotiana rustica). This has a much stronger effect than the well-known Nicotiana tabacum. Together with some other plants, the tobacco plant is ground and rapé, de ha-peh or rapay can be used. It has a mind-blowing, but also stimulating effect.
Rapé, pronounced ha-peh, has been used for centuries by the indigenous people of Central and South America. This mixture can produce psychoactive, but also stimulating effects. There are different types of rapé, each with its own characteristics. However, it always contains Nicotiana rustica, a herb which is twenty times more potent than the regular tobacco plant.
The shamans who use rapé do this to make contact with the other world. For them, rapé is sacred, because it helps them to receive important messages. This way they can help their people better. Rapé is used during ceremonies and rituals. And they didn't just do that in the past. No, rapé is still used today. The effects of this drug are so powerful that people can gain life-changing insights.
Not only Nicotiana rustica is added to rapé, but also other plants from the Amazon rainforest. The strong tobacco is often combined with psychoactive plants, such as kanna, caapi or passion flower. Other vegetable ingredients are also added, and sometimes also alkaline ash. All kinds of combinations are possible. The indigenous people of Central America have their own recipes and will not release them anytime soon.
Of course, it depends on the type of rapé you use, what the effects are. Shamans and priests use this ha-peh or mescaline cacti during their sacred rituals. Many Western users see it as a means to open the mind and experience hallucinations or visions. Some rapé only makes you dreamy (Caapi), but other types can cause a powerful psychedelic trip.
Ha-peh or rapay is considered by shamans to be a purifying agent. When it is blown into your nose, you cleanse the mind, the emotions and the spirit. If they use it themselves, it can help them to rebalance their energy field. The herbal mixture has a detoxifying effect and can therefore possibly cure someone of physical and mental illnesses.
Rape also contains a high concentration of nicotine. This has a stimulating effect, giving you a boost in your energy. Hormones such as adrenaline, dopamine and acetylcholine are produced, which improves your concentration, and you can experience a clarification, sharpening of your consciousness.
Ha-peh or rapay is originally used with a bamboo or bone pipe (called tepi in Brazilian). It takes two people, one taking the drug and the other blowing the rapé into your nose using the tepi. If you want to use rapé yourself, you can use a V-shaped pipe, a kuripe. You put one pipe in your mouth and the other in your nostril. This way, you can blow the rapé yourself into your nose.
It does have advantages to use a tepi, where a second person is present. If you are alone, and you get a dose of rapé in one nostril, it can be quite intense. As a result, you may not be able to take the dose in the other nostril. If you have a tepi, the other person can always give you the next dose as well. But the advantage of a kuripe is that you have more control over what happens.
As mentioned, the ha-peh or rapay is a cleansing agent. It therefore has rather powerful effects on the body. If the agent is blown into your nose, you will notice that your nose immediately starts to run. It is important that you sit with your head bent forward so that the mucus can drain easily. That may sound unattractive, but you should see it as a detoxification and that you get rid of harmful substances that way. This is how your body cleansed.
Make sure that the mixture of rapé and mucus does not run down your throat. If it does, don't swallow it. Clear your throat and spit it out. The use of rapé can also cause nausea and diarrhea.
