Peyote (Lophophora williamsii)

(88)

Peyote, considered a living god, El Mescalito had a long history of use among the natives of northern Mexico and Southwestern USA – at least 5700 years, say archeologists. Then it was demonized and driven underground by the Spanish conquerors in the 16th century. But thanks to the wonders of modern cultivation, you can have one of these sacred Lophophora williamsii in your own home.

Peyote (Lophophora williamsii): El Mescalito, considered a living god

The Spanish named the demonic plant peyote, from the Nahuatl word peyotl. It’s is a small cactus with fuzzy tufts instead of spines that rarely rises more than 3-4 cm above the soil surface, the largest part of the cactus being its long underground taproot.
Peyote is native to southwestern Texas and Mexico, growing in scrubby desert and preferring limestone soil. Currently in Texas it has been over-harvested and its habitat increasingly used for ranching, to the point that peyote is listed as an endangered species. This is made worse by the fact that peyote is extremely slow growing, though cultivated ones grow faster, with mature, flowering and harvestable (approx 3 inches in diameter) adult cacti taking less than three years to grow from seed.

Only in the 1900s did peyote publicly rear it psychedelic head again, with the establishment of the Native American Church and the legal protection it was given for peyote rituals.
Aldous Huxley tried mescaline under the supervision of Dr. Humphrey Osmond in 1953 and noted: "This is how one ought to see, how things really are." Huxley published his classic Doors of Perception about his mescaline experiences the following year.

PEYOTE INGREDIENTS

Peyote is another of nature’s wonderful chemical factories, making more than 50 alkaloids. The most interesting of these is the powerful entheogen mescaline, which makes up about 0.4% of the fresh cactus and 3-6% dried.

PEYOTE CARE & DOSAGE

The bit of the cactus above ground develops disc-shaped "buttons" that can be sliced off. Anywhere from 4 to 12 buttons are cut and chewed either fresh or dried, or made into tea.

Buttons should be sliced off at ground level or slightly above in order for new ones to grow. If you re-root your cactus by laying it in a porous, sandy soil or vermiculite/perlite mix and water regularly (allowing it to dry out between soakings), new roots will form from the cut base.

How To Dose Mescaline Cacti Properly

WARNING

Peyote is extremely bitter and most people feel nausea before they feel the onset of psychoactive effects. Try not to eat anything for at least 6 hours – you’ll keep the buttons or tea down longer and extract more of the mescaline before you (inevitably) empty your stomach. Once intoxicated, you will probably feel your body temperature and heart rate rise, creating sweating and flushed skin. Remain calm; this is normal.

All general advice regarding powerful psychedelics applies (good set & setting, importance of an experienced guide or sitter if it’s your first time, not mixing with other medicines or alcohol, etc). Finally, have faith in the validity of your experience and try to integrate what you learn into your life. Peyote is a very special ‘helper’ plant and not to be taken casually.

    Uitstekende service
    Op deze site bestel ik altijd mijn smartshop artikelen. Met een discrete bezorging had ik na 2 dagen mijn pakketje binnen. Helaas was de cactus beschadigd geraakt tijdens de rit en kon ik deze heilige plant niet laten groeien. heb ik contact opgenomen met de klantenservice en die boden hun excuses aan en stuurden mij gelijk een nieuwe op. Top service!
