it is very mild, but likely involve the purging- puking.
the ayahuasca vine -banisteriopsis caapi- is an MAOI, the other companion plant is the one with tryptamines (and the psychedelic effects - DMT)...the MAOI plant makes it so that the dmt and tryptamines work.
anywho if you are curious about this i would instead recommend trying passionflower leaves. it has some of the same effects, is an MAOI, and minus the puking. they both share in harmala alkaloids, which is what makes the ayahuasca work. it is calming and mellow, really not that noticeable but would give you a sense of what the harmala alkaloids are like, without puking.
i personally am not very drawn to ayahuasca myself, i have seen it brewed and people taking it and never felt called to it at all, so i suppose i am a bit wary of it. but i get curious about plants, so i have spent some time studying about it, psychedelics are pretty interesting and i think may be worth some more open discussion, study and reflection. i think its a powerful plant teacher, but should be approached with respect and a lot of caution.

here is the link to a product that i was thinking about taking:
I'd like to please suggest that when taking any new psychotropic substance that you make sure you have a good and trusted friend at the very least to be with you or near you for the duration. Don't go into an experience like this alone - if it goes badly, you are going to want somebody there for help. Better would be to have someone there who has had some experience with the substance.
the second ingredient is psychotria viridis - also know as chacruna, which is the psychedelic part of the mixture containing DMT...this plant with b. caapi is the most common traditional recipe for the brew the shamans make.
so if the plants are potent and fresh it would make you trip, but i wonder how it could be potent if its dried and stored. i had no idea that things like this were available at all in any marketplace, outside of vancouver, BC.
