Frequently Asked Questions

Kambo is legal to use everywhere in the world.
Kambo is non-psychoactive, and will not get you high. Kambo is a medicine used to detoxify the body, boost the immune system, strengthen the spirit, and many other uses.
None of the peptides have been identified as toxic to mammalian cells. They are however potently toxic to bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites, making it a great full spectrum antibiotic. There is no know toxicity to the liver, kidneys or brain.
Ideally 12 hours. Don’t eat or drink anything the morning of Kambo until instructed.
Not really. You can eat normally but most prefer to eat lighter foods the day before.
For anyone who has never experienced Kambo, I highly recommend to complete 3 sessions in a short period of time to recieve the most benefit. The first Kambo session is usually an introduction to the frog spirit, the second session goes a bit deeper, working on the mental, physical, and emotional build-up, and the third session is when things can get deeper and Kambo can work on clearing the spiritual and ancestral illnesses. For any chronic health issues, doing several treatments in a short amount of time is ideal. The amount of sessions needed depends on your health and your goal in taking Kambo. You can do a single session of Kambo to simply try it.
No, the frog is treated with utmost respect and compassion when harvesting the venom. Kambo can only be collected from wild caught frogs living in their native amazonian jungle habitat. Frogs in captivity do not produce the venom. Some speculate that the frogs diet of insects play a role in the potency and properties of the venom. In the traditional method, the frogs limbs are gently tied spreading it’s arms and legs in a cross-like fashion and the frog is sang to and delicately stroked on the back to provoke the frog to sweat the secretions from it’s skin. The indigenous tribes believe that if you harm the frog in any way, it’s spirit will be angered and not provide healing. After collection, the frog is then released back into its wild habitat. Often times, the frogs will be marked with an ink that wears off in about a week, so that if a frog is caught with an ink mark, they know it has not had enough time to replenish it’s venom and to collect it too frequently would give it a disadvantage at defending its self against predators.

The Kambo sticks I use come from the International Association of Kambo Practitioners (IAKP) and are ethically sourced directly from the Matsés in Brazil. The frogs are treated very kindly, only taking the first 20% of their secretion. By purchasing these sticks of healing secretion, we are directly supporting the Matsés and empowering them to continue living in the jungle and protecting it from the Brazilian government. Each Kambo ceremony helps conserve our precious Amazon rainforest and the people who are there to protect it.
