History of the coca leaf

The coca leaf is a very old plant, considered a mystic plant in the Inca era. Its use dates back to 500 B.C. the pre-Inca cultures and Inca era. In the pre-Inca cultures, the coca leaves were used to calm down sharp pains and chronic pain, it also was a support on the daily hard work and physical efforts. Nonetheless, when the Inca Empire increased, its use was forbidden for the citizens and only kept for the elite. The elite had miles of agricultural land with coca leaves growing on it, which was only given to its citizens in times of food shortage as a way of showing caring. Now and then, little bags with coca leaves were also given to their most faithful servants. Despite the fact that the coca leaf use was restricted by citizens, young runners, part of the postal system, used the coca leaf. They consumed it nonstop as the plant reduces fatigue.

Moreover, the coca leaf was used during religious ceremonies as it was considered a mystic plant. By chewing and spitting out the coca leaves, the Priests could foresee the future. The coca leaf was also used as barter to exchange objects with other communities. When the Inca Empire fell, the coca leaf consumption became widespread. Even nowadays, chewing coca leaves is a common practice in the highlands of South America. Finally, the coca leaf is also used as an element during the realization of an offering to the Pachamama, kintu. Kintu consists of three coca leaves that symbolize the 3 worlds of the Andean Cosmology (the world of the Gods, of the humans and the world of the dead). The coca leaves were used in religious ceremonies to give out blessings, protections and good harvests.
