Hapé is traditionally used by blowing fine ground-up powder into the nostrils with sacred instruments. These tools look like pipes that can be carved from bone or wood or be a piece of bamboo or reed.

Virtually all labs require a specific test for the substance, so unless your employer is a real stickler and specifically worried that you’ve been frequenting peyote ceremonies, you should be fine. Osmond had been investigating mescaline’s molecular similarity to adrenaline as well as its potential for treating mental illness and alcohol dependency. He supplied it to Huxley in 1953, who wrote The Doors of Perception about his mescaline trip the following year. In 1955, he administered mescaline to British Member of Parliament Christopher Mayhew as part of a BBC documentary. Unfortunately, while Mayhew described the effects in glowing, even mystical terms, the footage was never broadcast. Otherwise, both mescaline and peyote are strictly controlled as Schedule I substances. Other mescaline-containing cacti , such as San Pedro, are legal only for ornamental purposes.

Reach out to friends who you know have tried Kambo and see if they have any vetted practitioners that they can recommend. If you don’t know anyone personally, sometimes certain events such as psychedelic conferences or alternative healing events can have the type of people who may have done Kambo. Look for people with the characteristic kambo scars exposed on their arms and legs and consider asking them for a referral.
