Cultivation Guidelines for ONAC Sacraments

 Updated April 2021

Members are not allowed to sell, trade, or gift sacred plants listed as controlled substances by the United States government. These are only made available through branches or medicine people who are authorized and recognized by the Oklevueha Native American Church Mother Church. This is an important protection for you, as we cannot control the quality of the medicines coming from outside of ONAC.

Cultivation Guidelines for Peyote:

There is no personal cultivation of Peyote for any ONAC member.

Cultivation Guidelines for San Pedro:

San Pedro can be legally purchased in the United States; therefore, members can grow San Pedro freely for ornamental purposes only. There should be no extraction or secretion from this medicine.

Cultivation Guidelines for Ayahuasca, Psilocybin, Kambo:

ONAC does not recommend or authorize cultivation (or harvest in the case of Kambo) for any of these medicines.

Cultivation Guidelines for Cannabis:

ONAC members may cultivate cannabis for personal use as follows:

For INDOOR ONLY: members can possess no more than 6 adult plants, total (regardless of location), per member at any given time.

For OUTDOOR ONLY: members can possess no more that 4 adult plants total (regardless of location), per member at any given time.

For COMBINATION INDOOR / OUTDOOR: members can possess no more than 2 indoor adult plants and 3 outdoor adult plants, total (regardless of location), per member at any given time.

Members CAN claim partial ownership, down to a quarter of an adult plant, so long as the total does not exceed the above limits. No adult plant shall be owned by more than 4 ONAC members.

Members CAN claim partial ownership of adult plant, if and only if, the entire plant is owned entirely by ONAC members.

All adult plants owned by ONAC member should be clearly labeled with the name(s) of the ONAC member

IF, member owns plants in multiple locations, a list of all owned plants must be available and updated at all times. IF member does not have updated list of plants and locations, the assumption will be made that the member only owns plants in a singular location and ownership of plants in all other locations will NOT be recognized.


INDOOR: cultivation of cannabis with the use of any unnatural light to control the growth cycle

OUTDOOR: cultivation of cannabis with the use of natural sunlight

ADULT PLANT: any plant where the largest pistil (bud) measures more than a half inch wide at its widest point

IMMATURE PLANT: any plant that has not reached “adulthood” as defined above

NOTE: These cultivation amounts may be adjusted based on the written explanation by an authorized Cannabis Medicine Person for Oklevueha Native American Church. This letter of cultivation exemption must be sent to Mother Church for approval, and copies must be given to the cultivator, Mother Church, and the Medicine person. No ONAC approved Cannabis Sacrament can be sold, traded, or given to anyone, not even an ONAC member.

Information about other medicines:

ONAC recognizes all indigenous medicines as being effective. However, ONAC does not authorize the use or cultivation of Iboga/Ibogaine, Bufo/Otac, DMT / 5meo DMT, LSD/MDMA, Mambe/Coca Leaves, unless otherwise approved by Oklevueha Native American Church.

We also recognize the sacred medicines of hapé and sananga, however these are not medicines which can be easily cultivated or prepared. Therefore, be sure you source these medicines from a reputable company.

Many of our sacred medicines can be obtained over the internet, however, we strongly caution all members to avoid purchasing from third parties who have not been vetted by ONAC. This could cause legal and health problems for those using those medicines.

If you have any questions about a medicine/sacrament that is NOT listed here, to contact us directly at ONAC Mother Church: [email protected]
