Kaxinawa Canaleiro

Bottle, 10 Ml, 7 Gr from Brazil (SKU 4399)

(Batch #6606). Another fantastic Rapè from the Kaxinawa tribe.  In appearance this Rapè is firmly on the darker side of grey, with an almost blackish grain, similar to Canela de Velho, but with a slightly different taste, effect and character.  In scent one can detect spicy cinnamon tones, a quality of the Caneleiro leaves from which it gets its name. Caneleiro bridges the gap between softer and heavier rapè.  The power of Caneleiro comes progressively, after about a minute you reach a state of intense relaxation and wellbeing. This blend is good for meditation, but taken in higher doses it can also induce purging and bringing cleansing to the body.

Packed in 10 ml clear plastic bottles containing 7 gr.

The initial impact of this Rapé is akin to a fiery explosion in the sinus and consciousness of the user, this gently ebbs leaving a deep warmth in body and being.  As this initial fire ebbs away it is replaced with a grounding and solidity, the fire cleanses the earth and stillness reigns supreme. This Rapé leaves the user balanced physically and mentally calmed, receptive but still. 

The Caneleiro blend is made with the ashes of Cenostigma macrphyllum.  While literature and some online sources sometimes confuse Caneleiro and Canela de Velho, traditional Kaxinawa medicine distinguishes between Canela de Velho, Caneleiro Branco and Caneleiro Roxo, calling them "plantas prentes“, a term that could be translated into english as sibling plants or plants from the same family, with a kind of similar character. This term does not necessarily refer to any categories of classification used by western botanist. While Caneleiro Branco and Caneleiro Roxo are both used to make the blend called Caneleiro, Canela de Velho is clearly a different plant.

Caneleiro bridges the gap between softer and heavier Rapé. The power of Caneleiro comes progressively, after about a minute you reach a state of intense relaxation and wellbeing. This blend is good for meditation, but taken in higher doses it can also induce purging and bringing cleansing to the body.

This is an extremely fine and dry powder. It takes great effort to produce such a fine powder at a 150 micron fineness. This is our standard because this provides the best Rapé experience. All our Rapé is processed to a high standard and consistent fineness and dryness, using laboratory grade sieves and dehydrating equipment, before packaging.

Other names: Cenostigma macrphyllum

Kaxinawa means "People of the Bat" and is a name that was given to them by other enemy tribes. They are one of the biggest tribes in Acre state spread over different areas of the state with many communities and still exist in Peru as well. The Kaxinawas or Huni kuin (meaning true humans) are considered to be one of the biggest tribes in Acre, as they account for 42% of the indigenous population. They belongs to the Pano linguistic tribes that habitat the Peruvian and Brazilian Amazon. Moreover, their leader is a respected shaman that vigorously stands up for his tribe in public and through organizations: he founded the União das Naçoes Indigenas (UNI/AC) and ASKARJ, and he is a cofounder of the Alliance of Forest Peoples and of the International Council on Human Rights (IACHR). These organizations are speaking for the rights of the indigenous communities, as well as for human rights and the protection of the rainforest (Aya Conference 2014, Ibiza). 

Rapé in the Kaxinawas tribe is used for different purposes, such as the relief of physical pain and headaches, cleaning of the sinuses and alleviating snuffles. In addition, the Kaxinawas apply rapé for mental healing, mostly in combination with chanting. Rapé connects the tribe with spirits of the jungle and - depending on the exact ingredients - it can cure, heighten concentration, improve hunting, or be a connector with the spiritual nature.
