Unlike other psychedelic cacti, the peyote plant and its seeds are controlled substances in the USA; however, federal and state religious freedom restoration acts allow its use in religious ceremonies. In addition to mescaline, it contains the the alkaloid hordenine N,N-dimethyltyramine. San Pedro Notice the thickness and branching of San Pedro compared to cacti of the same genus.

San Pedro Echinopsis pachanoi contains mescaline, 3,4-dimethoxyphenethylamine, 4-hydroxymethoxyphenethylamine, 3-hydroxy-4,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine, 4-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine, anhalonidine, anhalinine, hordenine, tyramine, and 3-methoxytyramine.

Sometimes they are bred to minimize mescaline content. It has been used by indigenous South Americans for over years. Peruvian Torch Notice the similarity to San Pedro.

Peruvian torch Echinopsis peruviana is more consistently psychoactive than San Pedro, though potency still varies greatly. It has a higher ratio of mescaline to other alkaloids than San Pedro. Its history of use by indigenous people goes back years. Many regional varieties and hybrids exist. Peruvian Torch is one of the least well-defined and most varied species in its genus.

Because of this, and because it is generally considered more desirable than San Pedro, San Pedro and hybrid cacti are often represented as Peruvian Torch. Like San Pedro, growing it without the intent to utilize its psychoactive properties is legal in many areas. In South America it is sometimes referred to as San Pedro, as are various psychoactive cacti in the same genus. Bolivian Torch Several potted bridgesii demonstrating thinner columns.

These cacti are five years old. Bolivian torch Echinopsis lageniformis is widely regarded as the most consistently psychoactive and potent columnar cactus. It is faster growing than San Pedro or Peruvian Torch, though it is thinner than either. It is believed to have more hordenine relative to mescaline than Peruvian Torch.

The monstrose cultivars are slower growing forms which branch into many sections. Inngimamma, D Melaleuca. Among these are Obrtgonia driiegru. Aztektum rilteru. Ax Imphy turn aslerias. A capricornt. A myriostigma Bishop's Cap , and Sutisia peetl nara The Tarahumares also consume a cactus which Ihcy call Mulalo I Mam miliaria inicrom frill and claim thai if prolongs life, gives speed Id runners, and clarifies vision lor mystical insights An oilier cactus similar!

Several publications in recent years have men- tioned the sacramental use ol these cacti As a resull thousands o! This plant, known botanically as Trichocereus pachanoi, is native to the Andes of Peru and Ecuador. Unlike the small peyote cactus, San Pedro is large and multi-branched.

In its natural environment it often grows to heights of 10 or 15 feet. Us mescaline content is less that that of peyote 0.

One plant may easily yield several pounds of pure mescaline upon extraction. San Pedro also contains tyramine, hordenine, 3-methoiytyramine, anhalaninine. Some of these are known sympathomimetics. Others have no apparent effects when ingested by themselves. It is possible, however, that in combination with the mescaline and other active compounds they may have a synergistic influence upon one another and subtly alter the qualitative aspects of the eiperience. It is also possible that any compounds in the plant which act as mild MAO inhibitors will render a person vulnerable to some of the above-mentioned amines which would ordinarily be metabolised before they could take effect.

The effects of San Pedro are in many ways more pleasant than those of peyote. To begin with, its taste is only slightly bitter and the initial nausea is not as likely to occur.

When the full psychotropic eiperience takes hold it is less overwhelming, more tranquil and not nearly as physical as that from peyote. San Pedro may be eaten fresh or dried or taken in any of the manners described for peyote. A piece inches long will usually bring about the desired effect. The skin and the spines must be removed.

The skin should not be thrown away, however. The green LissiU close to the skin contains a high concentration of mescaline. Some people chew Ihe skin until all of the juices are extracted, if you don't want to do this, the skins can be boiled in water for several hours to make a potent tea. The woody core of the cactus cannot be eaten. One can eat around it like a com cob. The core does not have much alkaloid content, but can be mashed and boiled as a tea for what little is there.

The soines must be removed either before drying or before chewing. Also one must be careful of the splinters from the woody core. If a tea is to be made from fresh San Pedro, the cactus must be either sliced, chopped or crushed before boiling. San Pedro is a hardy cactus and endures cold climates quite well. It grows at altitudes from sea level to feel high in the Andes where it is most frequently found on western slopes.

The soil in this region is very rich in humus and various minerals. This helps in the production of mescaline and other alkaloids.

There are several cacti which look much like San Pedro and have even been mistaken for it by trained botanists. In I when Turner and Hey man discovered that San Pedro contained mescaline they erroneously identified the plant as Opunlia cylindrica.

A few other South American species of Trichacereus also contain mescaline with related alkaloids. These include: T. Even today it is used by curanderos medicine men of northern Peru.

They prepare a drink called cimora from it and take this in a ceremonial setting to diagnose the spiritual or subconscious basis of a patient's illness.

Seed-grown plants lake many yearn to develop to a usable size, but should ultimately provide strong, healthy stock from which cuttings may he taken. Plants have to grow through the lengthy seedling stage. A cutting of San Pedro may be 2 feel high by A inches diameter when planted. After 6 months it might easily gain inches in height, send forth one or two branches inches long by 2 inches diameter, and have sprouted several branch buds which will do the same within the next 6 months.

When these offshoots are 6 inches or more long they may be broken off and planted following the instructions below. Or they may be allowed another 6 months growth until they deepen from pale to dark-green to give them time to accumulate alkaloids and then collected and consumed.

Live plants of any of the species mentioned in this book — with the exception perhaps of peyote — can be downloadd from suppliers named at the end of this chapter. Freshly harvested peyote cuttings are frequently available on the underground market for 5tV to 11 per button.

When selecting peyote cuttings for planting choose ones which are firm and unbruised with at least M inch of taproot below the top. If the bottom of the taproot is still delicate where it has been cut, the button should! After ihe soil mil has cooled it is ready to use. I his cham. Place the button just deep enough so that the soil does not quite touch the green of the plant.

The soil should be kept "lightly moist and evenly so. If you are planting a tall cactus like San Pedro, the cutting should be placed deeply enough in the soil that it will have sufficient support to stand San Pedro type cacti can also be laid upon the ground and will sent! San Pedro can grow well in almost any soil as long as there is decent drainage.

Cacti tend to grow mostly during spring and autumn, to send down roots in summer, and to rest through winter. Although cactus cuttings may be planted any time of the year they stand the best chance if planted in the late spring.

Tbey should be watered thoroughly once or twice a week depending upon how rapidly moisture is lost. The sod an inch he Vow the surface should always contain some moisture. Watering can be cut back to less than half normal during winter. Presence of a wide variety of trace minerals is important.

Combine 1 part concentrate with 9 parts water and water cacti with this once every 2 months. It Experiments conducted by Rosenberg, McLaughlin and Paul al the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in demonstrated that dopamine is a precursor of mescaline in the peyole cactus. Tyraroine and dope were also found to be mescaline precursors, but not as immediate and efficient as dopamine.

These then recombine to form dopamine which is converted to nor-mescaline and finally to mescaline. One can take advantage of this sequence by injecting each peyole plant with dopamine 4 weeks prior to harvesting. Much of the dopamine will convert to mescaline during this time, giving a considerable increase of the alkaloid in the plant. Prepare a saturated solution of free base dopamine in a. Let the needle penetrate to the center of the plant, inject slowly and allow the needle to remain in place or a few seconds after injection.

It is best to deprive the plant of water for weeks before injection. This makes the plant tissues lake up the injection fluids more readily, If dopamine is not available, a mixture of tyramine and dupa can be used inslead 6 weeks before harvesting for comparable results, San Pedro and other mescaline-bearing cacti can be similarly treated for increased mescaline production.

Inject at the base of the plant and again every inches following a spiral pattern up the length of the plant. A series of booster injections can be given to any of these cacti every weeks and once again 4 weeks before harvesting for greater mescaline accumulation. It is also possible to increase the macromerine and nor-macromerine content of Donana cacti using tyramine or DL- norepinephrine as precursors. Injections should be given days before harvesting.

Series injections can be given 45 days apart for higher alkaloid accumulation. The chemicals required for this proem are readily available and their download arouses no suspicion or interest on the part of government agencies. The equipment employed is not expensive or particularly complicated or can be constructed very easily from ordinary household items. The entire process can be carried out in any kitchen in a matter of hours by following the instructions below and in the final stages one can verify the success of the procedure by actually watching the crystals of mescaline precipitate in the solution.

One kilo 2. On the average the yield is about 20 grams. The street price for 3 gram of pure mescaline is S20 to Sil one is luckv cnouah lo find it. One can obtain from a kilo of peyote ww to worth of mescaline.

If San Pedro is employed one may anticipate a yield of 3 to 12 grams of mescaline per kilo of dried cactus. Strain the Liquids and save them. Return the pulp to the pot.

Strain the liquids and combine them with the first strainings. Repeat this process shout five times or until the pulp no longer has a bitter taste.

Discard the pulp and reduce the volume of the combined strainings by boiling in an open pot. Do not use aluminum ware.

This makes the mescaline more soluble in benzene and less soluble in water. If a large separatory funnel is available pour the liquids into it and add to this ml of benzene. Shake the funnel well for 5 minutes and let stand for 2 hours. If a separatory funnel is not available the process can be carried out in a one-gallon jug with a siphon attached.

After standing for 2 hours the water layer will settle to the bottom and the benzene layer will float to the top. Between the two layers will be a thin emulsion layer of mixed water and benzene. Drain off the water and emulsion layers if you are using a separatory funnel or siphon off the benzene layer if you are using the makeshift jug-siphon apparatus.

Be certain that neither the water or emulsion layers gel into the benzene layer when separating. If any of these layers do get into the benzene during separation pour everything back into the separator, let it stand and repeat the separation more carefully. It is better to leave some benzene layer in the water and emulsion than to get the water or emulsion in the benzene.

Nothing will be wasted. All of the benzene which contains the mescaline will eventually be salvaged. Sometimes the layers will fail to separate properly. If this is the case immerse the funnel or jug in a deep pot of hot water for two hours. This will break up the emulsion and bring about the separation.

Prepare a solution of 2 parts sulfuric acid and 1 part water. Never add water to the acid or it will splatter; add the acid a little at a time to the water by pouring it down the inside of the graduate or measuring cup containing the water.

Add 25 drops of the acid solution one drop at a time to the benzene extracts. Stopper the jug and shake well for I minute. Then let it stand for 5 minutes. White streaks of mescaline sulfates should begin to appear in the benzene If these do not appear, shake the jug more vigor- ously for two or three minutes and let it settle for another 5 minutes. I have found that when extracting mescaline from San Pedro it is sometimes necessary to shake the mixture more thoroughly and for a longer time to get the mescaline streaks to form.

This is probably because of the lower mescaline content in the plant. This would also apply to any peyote that does not have a high mescaline content.

Psychedelic cacti

After the streaks appear add 25 more drops of the acid solution in the same manner, shake as before and let settle for 10 minutes. More streaks will appear. Add IS drops of acid, shake and wail 15 minutes for more streaks to form Add 10 drops, shake and wait about 30 minutes. Test the solution with wide range pH paper. It should show that the solution is between pH 7. Allow the mescaline sulfate crystals tn completely precipitate. Siphon off as much of the benzene as possible without disturbing the crystals on the bottom of the jug.

The next steps are to salvage any mescaline still in the water and emulsion layer. Carefully remove the benzene layer, treat it again with acid, precipitate the crystals and siphon off the benzene as in the previous steps. Recombine the siphoned benzene with the watery layer and repeal this again and again until no more crystals precipitate. Siphon off as much benzene as possible without drawing crystals through the siphon, [sec Cannabis Alchemy: the Arl of Modern llashniaking by David Hoye, page IS.

The first is the quickest but requires ether, which is dangerous and often difficult to procure Shake up the crystals with the remaining benzene and pour it into a funnel with filler paper. After the benzene has passed through the filter rinse the jug with ml of ether to salvage any crystals in the jug and pour the ether over the crystals in the filter. After the ether has passed through the filter repeat the rinsing with another ml of ether.

Then let the crystals dry. If ether is not available or if you do not wiah to use such a highly combustible substance, the precipitate and residual benzene can be poured into a beaker. The jug should be rinsed several times with a little benzene and added to the beaker bo that no crystals are left behind.

The beaker is then placed in a heat bath until all of the benzene has been evaporated. The neit step is to purify the mescaline sulfate crystals.

After either of these methods has been carried out dissolve the dry crystals in ml of near-boiling distilled water. Add a pinch of activated charcoal INorite and filter while still hot through 2 filter paper.

The hot water which contains the mescaline will pass through the filter. The Norite absorbs impurities from the mescaline. After the liquids have passed through the filter pour a little more hot water over the filter to rinse through any remaining mescaline which may have impregnated the filter paper.

Place a boiling stone in the solution and reduce its volume to 75 ml by hoiling. Remove the boiling stone and allow the solution to cool to room temperature. Place the solution in a freezer or in a refrigerator turned up to the coldest possible temperature and allow the solution to cool almost lo freezing. Tiny white needle-like crystals will form around the bottom and sides of the beaker Rmak un the crystals with a glass stirrina rod while Lhe solution w srtiil ice cold and pour through a filler.

Mescaline sulfate is insoluble in near freezing water and will not pass through the tuter. Rinse the beaker with fresh ice water and pour this over the filter. More mescaline can be salvaged from the water that has passed through the filter by boiling these liquids down to about 20 ml, adding Norile while hot. Different methods miy resull in varying degrees of punty. However, musi of these solvents are difficult for the non- professional to obtain Perhaps it is just as well since many of these solvents are either toxic or explosive if handled improperly Also, we do not always know precisely what we are trying to extract.

Some ot the active principles may be non-alkaloidal. Too much purification mivhl remove some of lhe l-l active substances. The approach given here employs material! After soaking, cover the mash with isopropyl alcohol and boil in a heal bath for Six hours. Strain the liquids through muslin and press as much liquid ar possible from the pulp With fresh alcohol repeat the boiling and straining three more times.

Combine the strained liquids, livaporate this in a heat bath until only a tar remains. When it appears to he almost dry place it hack in the oven, shut the heat off, and let it slay there until the oven cools. A fume hood with j. Box , Manhattan Bench.
