Additional information

The traditional method of coca consumption is called acullico. The user puts several coca leaves in the mouth with a small amount of an alkaline substance called llycta. Acullico entails stripping the leaf from the vein, then lightly chewing the leaf with a little ash - this releases the nutrients and an alkaline substance called llycta into the mouth which produces a feeling of increased awareness, an anaesthetisation to pain to hardship, and a light tingling in the mouth.
