Frequently Asked Questions
How is Kambo applied?
Kambo is applied by lightly touching the skin with a hot piece of vine to remove the very top layer. Tiny dots of kambo are then placed on the skin.
Is Kambo toxic?
Kambo is not toxic to the human system.
Is Kambo psychoactive?
Kambo is not a poison and it is not psychoactive. Research into Kambo by the FDA concluded it is not psychoactive, this is also supported by the International Association of Kambo Practitioners.
Is Kambo legal?
Kambo is legal in all countries of the world with the exception of Australia.
Does Kambo hurt?
I would say it is painless and some people feel only very mild discomfort invloved in the application of kambo. The huge benefits certainly outweigh this so be brave it's worth it :)
How does Kambo feel?
Many people report a warm sensation in the body. It's a very natural feeling that you've nothing to be afraid of. Kambo doesn't affect your mind, emotional state or thinking.
Does Kambo cause scarring?
It depends on the person but it can casue very small white marks on the skin. I apply a tree sap called Sangre de Drago or Dragons Blood to any skin openings which is a natural antibacterial which promotes healing. Most people wear their Kambo marks with pride!
How many Kambo sessions will I need?
It all depends on what brought you to Kambo. For many people a series of 3 sessions is enough. For deeper set issues I can develop a custom protocol for you and spread multiple sessions out over time.
