WHAT IS VOACANGA AFRICANA?

Overview and composition

Voacanga Africana is a small tree native to the rich and moist soils of the tropical and subtropical forests of West Africa.

At first look, people would mistake it for just another ornamental plant in their garden.

Voacanga Africana can grow to heights of 6m, its leaves are long, lush ovals and its flowers are like little snowflakes, white or yellow depending on the specimen.

The fruits of Voacanga Africana resemble large, freckled field beans that, once ripe, open up into two halves. Animals then feed upon the yellow pulp, ultimately allowing the plant species to spread its seeds.

Since its discovery in 1894, Voacanga Africana was considered to be merely a simple tropical shrub all the way up till WWII.

It is only recently that people studying the properties of psychedelic plants have taken it upon themselves to unveil the psychedelic potential of Voacanga Africana.

Is it still left to discover if there is any truth to these claims?
