This distinctive and potent snuff is not called Rapé. It is called Nunu, and is composed by the Matsés tribe, which are also known as the Mayoruna (the Quechan word for ‘river people’) and live in the amazon at the border of Brazil and Peru, on both sides. Through the sharpening of all senses, due to its powerful slicing effect the user of this snuff can experience subtle fragrances of the deep jungle and literally sense the forest and its spirits. Apart from hunting, Nunu can also be used to clear sinuses and blockages within the head, and often finds a ritualistic use during Ayahuasca ceremonies or during Kambo ceremony. Moreover, this snuff carries a divinely masculine spirit that will bring deep grounding, clear focus, and a strong aiming of your mind. Users of grey Rapé types may need to administer much larger doses of Nunu to have the required effect as the indigenous would use our equivalent to a tea spoon amount per administration. At these levels Nunu can be extremely powerful leaving the user in a highly mediative state. As with all non grey types powder can easily find its way into the back of the throat and some purging may occur.
