The Cocaine and the Incas

Did you know that…..

the leaves of the coca tree were used by the Incas in their religious rites ?

The Incas used to chew coca leaves.

In the middle of the eighteenth century French botanist Joseph de Jussieu (1704-1779) introduced the “coca” in Europe.

Later, Sigmund Freud and Kohler investigated the characteristics of coca, and it was the latter who discovered the anesthetic properties of the plant.
