LEARN MORE ABOUT COLLECTING KAMBO & THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE MAGIC
Collecting the Medicine
Proper collection of Kambo is of vital importance; it impacts the strength and effectiveness of each experience. The medicine used by Kambo Pure is collected by indigenous tribes located in the Peruvian Amazon. The International Association of Kambo Practitioners has a great connection with the tribes who collect the Kambo and can ensure the safety and authenticity of the process, as well as highly ethical conduct. The Kambo you will receive is of the highest quality.
When it's time to gather Kambo, the frog is gently stretched and tickled. The secretion is then released through the pores of the frog's soft tissue, and is carefully collected on a stick and left to dry in the sun. There is a harmonious relationship with this frog and those who collect them. The frog is not harmed during the process and afterward is released back into the forest with gratitude.
secretion has gained such a
reputation that scientists began to
investigate its properties back in the 1980's.
Nobel Prize nominee Vittorio Erspamer wrote that
Kambo is "a fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications, unequaled by any other amphibian." Kambo contains powerful peptides and is one of the strongest natural antibiotics in the world. Science can teach us a great deal about healing, but at the same
time, Kambo goes far beyond scientific analysis.
With science, metaphysics, and tradition working together, we are forming a better picture
of what Kambo can offer the world.
