Motivación del estudio

Scientific evidence available in the published literature about ayahuasca’s psychological and physiological effects indicates an acceptable risk profile with no abuse potential and potential benefits in the use for e.g. depression and addiction treatment. However, national and international drug control bodies, such as the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), advocate increasingly for repressive measures to ayahuasca drinking practices, stating that there is an alarming increase in interest in its recreational use, which according to several reports implies serious health risks, possibly encouraged by a lack of clarity with regard to the control status of the plants at the national or the international level. The INCB recommended in 2010 and again in 2012 that governments ‘take action’ against these ayahuasca drinking practices where needed.
In this socio-political environment it is crucial to advance scientific knowledge about ayahuasca drinking practices and the increased use in our globalized world, as well as a better understanding on the health implications of ayahuasca, to make sure that political decisions can be taken based on evidences.
