Description

Ambil is a type of paste, syrup, jelly or jam made from tobacco and mineral salts. It’s is a very strong, intense, and powerful sacred medicine.

Each pot weighs approx. 50-65 grams each.

Each one is hand-made by indigenous Witoto people, so each pot may vary slightly in weight.
Also, it’s tastes, consistency, strength, and textures may vary with each batch, which are normal with indigenous tribes.
They tend to make medicines slightly different with every batch, depending upon availability of ingredients, season, climate and humidity.

Ambil is placed in the mouth by dipping a finger or removing a small amount with a spatula or finger nail and rubbing it on the teeth, gums, or tongue. Although consumed alone, ambil is sometimes ingested simultaneously with other snuff products.

Generally, it has limited distribution in South America. It is found among tribes of the northern end of the Andes in Colombia and Venezuela, and some parts of the north-west Amazon.

In the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia, the indigenous people prepare a thick black jelly/jam through a baking sheet of tobacco juice lasting hours or even days. The product is further thickened by adding starch – either cassava, or arrowroot.

Well-green leaves of the lower part of the tobacco plant are selected to be cooked over a slow fire. At the same time, salts are obtained by certain tribes by the evaporation of water which has been poured and percolated through ash tree parts. The salts are added to make ambil, while they concentrate it into a thick syrup or paste. Salt or alkaline ashes are used by some tribes, as part of their recipe for ambil.

Some tribes consume ambil together with coca, ayahuasca, and possibly other hallucinogens.

Also, you can take Ambil just before your Rapé session, Ayahuasca or other medicine ceremonies in your gums – it’ll make everything much stronger – grounds, cleanses, clears your thoughts, opens your heart and throat chakras, and connects you to Spirit…

Very masculine energy of Father Tobacco. Also, some tribes use it during other sacred medicine ceremonies, as it intensifies your experiences and deepens your journey much more.

Some clients have reported using Ambil before bed to encourage and deepen lucid dreaming states.

Tribe_Witoto_01

The Witoto people (also Huitoto) are an indigenous people in south-eastern Colombia and northern Peru. Current population is approximately 8,500 people.
The Witoto people were once composed of one hundred villages or 31 tribes, but disease and conflict has reduced their numbers. Until the early 20th century, Witoto population was 50,000. The rubber boom in the mid-20th century brought diseases and displacement to the Witotos, causing their numbers to plummet to 7,000–10,000.
Since the 1990s, cattle ranchers have invaded Witoto lands—depleting the soil and polluting waterways. In response, Colombia has established several reservations for Witotos.

Witoto peoples all practiced swidden or slash-and-burn agriculture. To prevent depleting the land, they relocate their fields every few yields. Major crops include cacao, coca, maize, bitter and sweet manioc, bananas, mangoes, palms, peanuts, pineapples, plaintains, sugar cane, sweet potatoes, tobacco, and yams. Ethnobotanists have studied Witoto agriculture due to its efficiency and sustainability.

    Hello, I’m an Ambil user from Germany so please be kind if my english sounds funny 🙂

    I had my first contact with Ambil close before an Ayahuasca ceremony. It tasted bitter and chili-like hot but the effect it had on me was surprising. I got completely focussed, calmed down and had a very visionary Aya-experience. More visonary than the ceremonies before.

    I love lucid dreaming and I tried different supplements for inducing lucid dreams (Guarana, Guayusa-Tee, Vitamin B6, Hyperzine-A). Remembering the effect on my clarity during the retreat I liked to try Ambil before going to sleep. My Ayahuasca shaman was nice and gave me a 1-month amount of Ambil to test it for dreaming.

    The first night I took too much. I wasn’t able to fall asleep but when I did, very late, I had two long and continuing dreams (not lucid). Two days later I tried Ambil during the night, when waking up between 2 and 3 o’clock. I took a smaller amount than the night before and felt very fast into sleep. I had a wonderful lucid dream then in which I was also taking Ambil and then laying down and doing the WILD technique (a lucid dreaming technique).

    I took Ambil in ten nights, in four of them I had lucid dreams, which makes it for me the most successful supplement. The other, non-lucid, dreams in my Ambil-nights were different from other dreams. Ambil-dreams are long lasting dreams with a complete storyboard, they have a start and an end. Also episode-dreaming is possible with Ambil. These dreams are also much more emotional and deaper. In two of my lucid (Ambil) dreams I faced my biggest fears. I only know such deap experiences from Ayahuasca but not from dreaming.

    As a careful person I fear of becoming addicted to nicotine, so I take Ambil only twice a week now. It also helps before meditations, makes me more focussed and clear.

    Thanks to Shamanic Snuff to bring Ambil out of the jungle into our dreams 🙂 !

    Hello,
    I give shamanic healing using rattle and songs. I use rapé (Nukini, most of the time) to help me find the good trance state, and also to protect and purify me. Ambil (a small amount on my tong, in my pratice, just having the taste is enought) is used to replace smoked mapacho, as I’m not a smoker but wanted to blow the mapacho spirit just like in what is called “sopladas”. Ambil definitly does the job, openning, cleanning and protecting the reciever. It also protects me as I suck bad things from someone before spiting them in a bowl…
    Thanks for your products!
    And, please, keep ambil in store!

    The first time i worked with ambil was before an aya ceremony. I’m a nervous person, i have had bad anxiety my whole life and it was my first time with these people at this place so i was nervous. The ambil really calmed my nerves, i been working with rape’, mapacho cigars and i have some rolled mapacho, but i was a heavy smoker for years and i really don’t like the idea of smoking anything. Rape helps and is great with my meditation but during ceremony i would need something strong like smoking mapacho to balance out that energy which works great, but im trying not to smoke anything and ambil seems strong enough to help balance out those heavy energies without smoking which is the healthier choice for me, especially after years of chain smoking, but it is good medicine and I use Shamanic Snuff for a lot of my medicines and out of everybody around that offers these medicines these guys Rape’s are the best, they just seem fresher and therefor stronger. I been going through these guys for awhile, this is my first time trying the ambil from them but it won’t be the last, shipping was fast to the US and they got great customer service – Thank you for helping this medicine get to the people!!!
