Effects of Peganum Harmala (Syrian Rue)
Peganum Harmala has a strong MAO inhibitory effect but gives a different effect to the Ayahuasca than Banisteriopsis Caapi. That’s why the name of Ayahuasca is also given to the brew made with Syrian Rue, it is a surrogate of the Ayahuasca. Many people prefer this variant because the physical effects are less vigorous and the seeds are also easier to process. Due to its MAO inhibitory effect, Peganum Harmala is mainly used in combination with other DMT-based plants.
