The Peruvian Torch Cactus (Echinopsis peruviana) contains the psychoactive ingredient mescaline, which produces a state similar to LSD. Users of mescaline report altered thoughts, color distinctiveness, and synesthesia. If you are looking to add the Peruvian Torch Cactus (Echinopsis peruviana) to your home garden today, we have the plant available in 3 sizes (10-11cm, 25-30cm and 50-60cm).
This fast-growing, columnar cactus is native to the Andes in Peru. It is bluish-green in colour and grows 6-9 rounded ribs with large, white flowers. People use the Peruvian Torch Cactus for its mescaline properties. Spiritual healers use this product to become one with the natural universe; they go on journeys looking for direction and answers. Many people experience psychedelic effects including hallucinations and auditory alterations. Vomiting is considered a part of the cleansing process, so be aware that this could happen and try to avoid eating 6 hours before consumption. This should help alleviate some of the nausea and result in better absorption of the mescaline.

When harvesting for mescaline, each dose should last 6-12 hours. Usage should be one small piece for a light to moderate experience (15-25cm), and a strong trip would be a larger piece (25-35cm).
Wait 60-90 minutes for effects, and it should peak around 2-2.5 hours. You can eat the meat of the plant directly, but the taste can be unpleasant. Drying the plant and grinding it into a powder is usually a better solution. It is easy to then add the power to a drink.
It can have strong effects; make sure someone is with you in case you need assistance.
