Bufo Alvarius or “sapito,” is 5 times more powerful than Ayahuasca
Few people can explain an extrasensory or spiritual experience. Until they come across medicines like the Bufo Alvarius, also known as sapito.
The “spiritual” label lays in the history of the substance. Its use is not related to recreational drugs or addiction. However, one must use this medicine respectfully.
As incredible as it may seem, the use of this small animal has its origins in indigenous ancestry. Thus, there are many iconographic and mythological representations of toads in the Olmec, Mayan and Aztec cultures that date back to 2000 B.C.
The Sonoran Desert hosts the largest amount of this species in Mexico.
People who have consumed this medicine claim that it produces an oniric-like effect. You awaken from a dream after having a kind of revelation. The ‘Toad of Dawn,” as it is also known, expels 5-meO-DMT from its skin.
The neurotransmitter molecule is called Bufotenin. It is collected from the toad’s skin, without causing any damage to it. The liquid is then dried. Once crystallized, the effect on the psyche begins.
