Peyote with Pups: A special breed of peyote that has the collector in mind

Natively called Peyotl, this psychoactive cactus first hailed from the dry regions of Mexico. It was always traditional used for religious purposes, allowing the user to become closer to god through spiritual visions. It is considered to be the first cause for a “war on drugs”, waged by Spanish Conquistadors. The Spanish empire was notorious for forcing its religious beliefs on those who came under their subjugation, and it was no different for the people of what is now Mexico. The Spanish saw the use of Peyote as a heretical act in the worship of false Gods - peyote itself is considered to be the living god El Mescalito. As a result, peyote was outlawed and driven from mainstream use.

Our Peyote with Pups is a special breed. Instead of having the one traditional growth, this rarer, collectors version of peyote grows with numerous pups, allowing for even bigger harvests. Peyote is quite a small cactus in stature; it grows low above soil level when compared to more traditional cacti, with the majority of the peyote cactus growing underground as a large tap root.

They are extremely slow growing, taking up to 3 years to go from seed to a mature adult plant. This, in conjunction with over harvesting and the increasing use of land for ranching, has seen a decline in the amount of peyote growing wild – to the point where it is now an endangered species.

The re-emergence of peyote and our Peyote with Pups is largely down to establishment of the Native American Church in the 90's. As peyote is central to their religious practices, they have been given legal protection to use it. This has seen a keen niche interest build in the area, with experienced psychoactive drug users wanting to collect and experience it for themselves. If you fancy yourself a peyote fan, then obtaining this unusual specimen may be right up your street.

Active Ingredients

Just like the classic peyote, the ingredient you will be mainly interested in with our Peyote with Pups is the potent entheogen mescaline. When taken fresh, peyote with pups will have a 0.4% content; if dried you can expect this content level to increase to 3-6%.

Harvesting and Dosage

The pups of the cactus will develop disc shaped “buttons”. These buttons can be sliced off and be administered either fresh, dried or in a tea form. The most common way to take peyote is to take 4 to 12 of these buttons and then cut and chew them. This releases the active ingredients.

You should make these cuts just above soil level, this will allow the discs to regrow. You can also re-root your cactus by planting it in sandy soil similar to that you would find it in growing in the wild. By watering it regularly and letting it dry out in between each soaking, you can stimulate new root growth.

    Size is as expected but it was infested with spider mites.
    I was hoping to leave a very positive review here, however there where multiple issues with my order. First of all the plant had a pretty nasty spider mite infestation. Parts of it either got damaged in shipping or where starting to turn brown and black from the mites. Aside from that i called to the service desk as they had cancelled my order, they offered me a voucher. when i asked i could have my money back instead, miraculously they had 1 in stock all of a sudden and could ship my order as planned, when it arrived i quickly saw the issues i explained before. I'm really dissapointed, i decided against returning it because i was afraid you might Butcher this beautifull plant further. it's an endangered species treat it with respect!

    Damaged on one side
    I wish I could give a perfect 5, because it was well protected during shipment and it's such a beautiful plant. Unfortunately one side looks corked all over, both smaller and bigger pups. An expert told me that this could be due to lack of light or a previous attack from insects. Either way it's not perfect.

    It is growing incredible well and fast.
    He is growing and starting to say it's firsts words, It has bad character sometimes it gets furious other times it's hilarious and some black humour it has, strange cacti.

    Really good
    I received it in perfect conditions. When I transplant them some of the bulbs got sick and spoiled, so sadly I had to cut them. But shortly after a big amount of new bulbs had grown and seem super health!!

    The original that came had a defect and I was offered a £50 voucher or another one sent to me with postage covered, the second one I received was in heresy condition, exceeded expectations

    E. B.

    Great product, exactly as advertised. Also got some good advice on how to treat it when I e-mailed Zamnesia. Great service! Now just waiting for it to reach its potency :)

    Peyote met pups 10-11 cm
    Ik heb de 10-11cm besteld. Echt een super mooie en grote plant. Deze heeft 1 grote cactus in het midden en een 25-tal kleinere er om heen. Deze is in uitstekende conditie toegekomen. Geen kneuzingen of beschadigingen en ook geen droge stukken. Ik had wat bang voor het transport maar deze was zeer goed en professioneel verpakt. De effecten kan ik niet omschrijven want ik heb geen intentie om deze (al) te gebruiken. Echt een aanrader. Het enige minpuntje is toch wel de hoge prijs.

    C. V.

    Cactus déjà enraciné dans son petit pot,bien emballé pour le transport. Rien à redire,parfait!

    O. M.

    schöner Kaktus
    Hab die kleinste Version gewählt und in einen größeren Topf pikiert. An seinem Winterstandort scheint es ihm schon mal gut zu gehen. Mal sehen ob er nächstes Jahr blüht =) Einen kleinen Stern Abzug wegen des doch recht deftigen Preises. Service von Zamnesia sonst wie immer super! Kaktus war super verpackt

    P. S.

    Molto Bello
    Molto bello e particolare! Consigliato da tenere come ornamento!

    G. P.
