Collecting the Kambo

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.

Scientific Research


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.

Kambô: Scientific Research & Healing Treatments

"So far, researchers have found nine bioactive peptides that have a potent effect on the gastro-intestinal muscles, gastric and pancreatic secretions, blood circulation, and on the stimulation of the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland."

Medical Research on Kambo

"Kambo has the ability, unlike many other natural and pharmaceutical substances, to cross the blood-brain barrier, enabling it to reach deep into the body and bring support to otherwise difficult to treat areas.  Human cells open up to the beneficial properties of Kambo unlike many substances that are filtered and eliminated by the body’s highly intelligent defense system."
