Sacraments – Personal Use Requirements and Limitations

Updated July 2022

The Oklevueha Native American Church membership card states that a member in good standing “is qualified to carry, possess (in amounts appropriate for individual consumption) and/or use Native American Sacraments…” Those sacraments are identified, and cultivation guidelines specified on our Notice page for members and law enforcement personnel. The QR code on the back of your membership card directs them to the Notice page on the website.

Personal Use Amounts

  • Cannabis – 2 ounces; regarding edibles, the total amount of THC cannot be more than 2 ounces.
  • Psilocybin – 3 grams.
  • Ayahuasca – NO PERSONAL USE – only to be worked with in ceremony, NO cultivating
  • Peyote – No more than 3 buttons and 1 quart of Tea (must be working with a Medicine Person to receive this sacrament) There should be no traveling with Cacti Buttons, and absolutely no cultivating.
  • San Pedro – 1 quart of tea, cultivating is fine as long as there is no extraction of mescaline.
  • Kambo – Suggested for ceremonial use only, or under the guidance of an ONAC Medicine Person.

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 Mother Church (Oklevueha Native American Church). This is important because we know where those medicines/sacraments came from, how they were prepared and that they are free of harmful or additional elements that we do not endorse or that may be dangerous to our members.

Simply becoming a member of Oklevueha Native American Church does not make you a recognized Medicine Person, nor does it give you authorization to conduct your own ceremonies under Oklevueha Native American Church.

We are happy to help you get in touch with our recognized ONAC branches who have recognized ONAC Medicine People that are able to conduct ceremonies under ONAC. If you would like to contact us directly, once a member, we can help you get in contact with those recognized branches in good standing at: [email protected]

NEW ADDITION: If you are working with an ONAC Medicine Person, and they give you more than your personal limitation, you must obtain from them a written letter with the Medicine Person’s signature, branch, etc. stating that this medicine is given to you by a medicine person for healing purposes.

Requirements and limitations are different for those who are designated as Medicine People, branch leaders, or custodians, and have a membership card from ONAC stating their status. Those differences are designated only by Mother Church and not by the members.

Information About Other Medicines:

ONAC recognizes all indigenous medicines as being effective.

However, ONAC does not authorize the use or cultivation of the following medicines unless otherwise approved by Oklevueha Native American Church Mother Church:

  • Iboga/Ibogaine
  • Bufo/Otac
  • Tepezcohuite
  • DMT / 5meo DMT
  • Yopo
  • Mimosa (Mimosa pudica) bark/ Jurema
  • Mambe/Coca Leaves

If you are arrested with any of the above unauthorized medicines, Oklevueha Native American Church cannot stand with you legally, as possession of any of these medicines puts you out of compliance.

We also recognize 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. Both of these medicines are legal in the United States.

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.

Any questions on this policy should be directed to [email protected] Our staff will have one of our leadership either answer your questions or contact you for clarifications.
