Rapé – Cohoba
£2.43 – £68.50
Rapé Cohoba is my latest creation. It follows the same fundament as rapé Ayohuasca. The only difference is the absence of the aya component. Cohoba powder is made Powerful and deep is the shortest way to describe this new addition.
Common names, Cohoba, Yopo, Jopo, Parika, Parica
Rapé Cohoba is my latest creation. The recipe I used for this snuff is almost the same as the recipe I used for making rapé Ayohuasca. The only difference is the absence of the Aya component. Instead of the mixed energies that come with the Ayohuasca snuff, rapé Cohoba offers a different way to study this energy. Cohoba powder together with Sabiá tobacco, another very rare powerful tobacco strain and Parika ash. The rapé Cohoba has deep earthly, nutty aromatic tones and brings deep meditative states.
This is quite masculine snuff especially for people who love to dive deep.
Seeds from which the Cohoba powder is made comes from the Parika tree. These seeds grow in elongated pods. The Parika tree is native to the Caribbean and South-America and can reach heights up to 20 meters. The use of pure pulverized Cohoba holds a centuries-old traditional usage. Although Cohoba is synonymous with the word Parika in the Amazon, almost all Parika snuffs I know use the bark ashes but not the seeds.
Cohoba has various names. One of them is Parika. Rapé Parika is well known as a powerful snuff. But the power from almost all Parika rapé I know of comes from the bark ash. Rapé Cohoba combines the pulverized seeds with Parika bark ash.
Pure Cohoba can be a strong entheogenic snuff if you can get potent seeds and prepare it in the correct way. The Cohoba I am using for this rapé is fully active and quite potent. The added amount of Cohobas function is to deepen and broaden your experience. With a relatively low percentage of Cohoba it brings just enough power to stay in balance with the other forces at work. This is a very potent rapé that might not be for everybody. It also might sting/burn your nose more then you are used to.
Tepi and Kuripe
Traditionally Rapé is administered through a pipe made out of bamboo or bone. The Tepi is a blowpipe that you can use to administer another person. When receiving Rapé the other blows it through both nostrils. In general, the shape of the Tepi is straight, curved or V-shaped. A different form is self-administration. For this, you use a Kuripe. The Kuripe has a V- shape and connects the mouth to the nostril. In this case, you blow the Rapé to yourself.
I sieve this Rapé Cohoba and all other Rapé coming from my shop through a 120-micron high-grade stainless steel mesh. This makes an extremely fine powder. It’s labor-intensive but guarantees a consistent fineness, cleanness and optimal absorption of the Snuff. I store the Rapé stock dry and in vacuum containers to prolong freshness and quality.
