What is peyote ?
Peyote is a small, spineless cactus, Lophophora williams ii, with the hallucinogen mescaline (3, 4, 5-trimethoxyphenethylamine) being the principal active ingredient. From earliest recorded time, peyote has been used by natives in northern Mexico and the south-western United States as a part of their religious rites.
What is the active component in peyote ?
This is Mescaline, a naturally occurring psychedelic found in several cactus species, most notably Peyote and San Pedro. Several other members of the trichocereus family also contain mescaline. In addition to containing mescaline, the cacti mentioned above contain a large variety of related psychoactive compounds, and will produce experiences that are qualitatively different than pure mescaline. The experience produced by Peyote is also quite distinct from that produced by cacti from the trichocereus family.
The effects of peyote
The effects of Peyote have been described as very dream-like, drifting, almost a delirium type of state during the first couple of hours. The sensation is similar to LSD but less edgy. While both auditory and visual hallucinations occur, many users say that a peyote high is more suitable for inner reflection and contemplation.
The potency of Peyote, as well as different people's tolerance to it, seems to vary widely. Some people report powerful experiences from as few as three or four Peyote buttons. More often users consume 12 to 15 buttons, and eating more than two dozen is not unheard of. First cut out the spines, then cut the skin off in "V" strips, cutting from the outside of each rib towards the central section of the cactus. These "V" strips are saved as they contain the most potent flesh. Eating is definitely not fun as it tastes very bitter. Chew the cactus to a pulp and then wash it down with some liquid. The high starts some 45 minutes after ingesting. It is also possible to make a tea from the Peyote. It is important to boil the cacti for several hours.
