Our sticks come directly from the Matses indigenous tribe from Peru in the Amazon jungle.
This medicine is known as “Sapo” in Peru, and also known as “Acaté” by the Matses tribe in Peru, but more commonly known as “Kambô” in Brazil.
The frogs are found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, French Guiana, Suriname and Venezuela.
According to a Kaxinawá (Huni Kuin – indigenous tribe from Brazil) legend tells that the indigenous people of the village were very sick, and the Shaman Kampu had done everything that was possible to cure them. All medicinal herbs known were used, but none helped his people’s agony.
So, Shaman Kampu then entered the forest and under the effect of ayahuasca, received the visit of the great God. He brought in His hands a frog, from which He took a white secretion, and taught how to apply. Returning to the tribe and following the guidelines that he had received the Shaman Kampu was able to cure his community. After his death, the spirit of Kampu has started living in the frog and the indigenous people began to use it’s secretion to stay active and healthy.
Kambô has been found to contain numerous bio-active peptides, which aid deep healing and cleansing for many various ailments and conditions.
It has been used for thousands of years by many indigenous tribes of the Amazon jungle. They have been using this sacred medicine to boost their immune system, and to improve their hunting skills, by sharpening their perceptual faculties and awareness whilst hunting in the Amazon jungle.
Also, it’s been traditionally used to lift “panema” – it can be thought of as bad luck, depression, laziness, sadness, or negative energetic influences, which attract difficulties and disease.
The frog is always unharmed during the secretion extraction process and is only mildly stressed for a very short amount of time. Generally, it is considered extremely bad form by the indigenous people to harm the frog in any way, as it could offend the animal spirits of the jungle, and bring about misfortune.
Afterwards, the stick is wrapped in a corn leaf to protect it’s sacred contents. When you unwrap a Kambo stick, it’s surface contains the dried secretions of the frog venom.
As far as we are aware, kambo is legal in the majority of countries worldwide, apart from Brazil where it’s restricted.
