Extracts from the leaves, flowers, fruits, and roots of Psychotria colorata are traditionally used as an analgesic by native Amazonian Cabaclos people. This analgesic effect has been studied in animals and shown to be reversible by naloxone, indicating a mu-opioid receptor mediated effect. Subsequent research has identified several active alkaloids in the plant, the most important of which are hodgkinsine, which acts as both a mu-opioid agonist and NMDA antagonist, and psychotridine, which is an NMDA antagonist with little or no mu-opioid -Affinity.
