Buy San Pedro Mescaline Cactus Cutting

The popular name for the cactus is San Pedro Cactus Cutting, although it is also known as Hachuma, Achuma, and Aguacolla. Echinopsis pachanoi is the scientific name for the San Pedro cactus, which was previously known as Trichocereus pachanoi.

This nomenclature change is the outcome of a recent cactus categorization modification. The San Pedro mescaline cactus have been assigned to a brand-new family, the Echinopsis! A San Pedro cactus grows faster than a peyote cactus, which contains mescaline.

The San Pedro Cactus Cutting can grow up to 30 centimeters each year. Cacti up to 12 meters tall have been observed, but the San Pedro normally grows to a respectable 3 to 6 meters tall. After little preparation, a cutting of the San Pedro can be transplanted to a pot or used for its mescaline.

Somewhere between 1 to 2 hours after consuming San Pedro you will feel the first effects of the cactus. Effects can last ranging between 8 to 15 hours and the peak of the trip is after 3 hours and can last up to 4 hours.

How to use San Pedro Cactus Cutting?

The San Pedro cactus can be consumed in a variety of ways. From just ingesting raw cacti to chemically extracting mescaline. We’ll go over two simple ways to prepare the San Pedro cactus for ingestion.

This is simple to accomplish at home: Consuming San Pedro uncooked and making San Pedro cactus tea. A basic instruction for mescaline extraction and a link to a more comprehensive tutorial can be found a little further down.

Eat the cactus raw

That is simple! Remove any thorns, spines, and prickles and begin chewing the San Pedro cacti like a cucumber, chewing every part of the flesh and skin. The wooden-like stalk in the core of the cactus cannot be eaten. If you have a large chunk of San Pedro cactus, this technique of consumption may take some time.

Brew a tea of the San Pedro

San Pedro should be cut into slices. Because the center of the cutting is woodlike and cannot be cut, you’ll be cutting stars with a round aperture where the stem used to be. Put the slices in a food processor to make a pulp. Make a tea with the pulp.

Add boiling water and allow to simmer for a few minutes before sieving or drinking it straight up with the pulp. Lemon juice is added for taste and vitamin C. The latter aids in the absorption of mescaline.

Other techniques of preparing San Pedro include drying, freezing, adding ground San Pedro cactus to capsules, and extracting the Mescaline.

Extracting Mescaline from San Pedro

There are numerous Mescaline extraction techniques. Well explain one of the simpler ones step by step:

Simmering the sliced San Pedro in water for 5 to 7 hours.

  • You will need to wash and cut up the San Pedro Cactus.
  • Remove all thorns, spines and prickles with a sharp knife.
  • Slice of the outer peel until you see a green pulp, this is were most of the mescaline is stored.
  • Remove all the green pulp from under the peel for use.
  • Put the pulp in a cooking pot with one liter of fresh water and let simmer for 2-3 hours.
  • Sieve the residue to seperate the liquid (← this is your first extract) from the pulp.
  • Simmer this pulp for a second time with just another liter of fresh water during 2 hours.
  • Sieve this again and this time throw out the pulp.
  • Add the second to the first extract into the cooking pot.
  • Boil this down for a couple of hours until you have 250ml to 500ml (1-2 cups) left and your extract is ready.

An acid-base extraction is a lot more sophisticated procedure that yields a substance with a significantly higher concentration of Mescaline.

Growing your San Pedro cutting

San Pedro cuttings can be grown by allowing them to root in cactus soil. Find a pot with a hole in the bottom to drain the extra water. The roots should never be submerged in water or they will decay. Fill the pot halfway with cactus soil mix, poke a hole in it, and plant the San Pedro. Prepared to grow!

Some tips for growing San Pedro Cactus:


  • San Pedro grows well in both direct sunlight and partial shade. San Pedro can be grown both indoors and outdoors. Provide some shade the first year to avoid sunburns from scorching direct sunlight and to allow it to adjust to your environment.


  • Indoors, make it a habit to water the plant at least once every two weeks. Place the pot in a tray of water for an hour to allow the roots to absorb the water. San Pedro cactus is more tolerant to moisture than desert cacti. Do not water the cactus when the soil is still moist!
  • Outdoors: Water your cactus regularly, during hot summer days at least once or twice a week.


  • In room temperature, the San Pedro will thrive. If you want the San Pedro to flower, it must go through dormancy (the plant’s equivalent of hibernation) over the winter. Starting in September or October, make sure the soil is bone dry and plant the cactus in a cooler location (70-100 degrees Celsius) until early May or April. Do not water or fertilize the cactus soil at this time. In late spring, the San Pedro will blossom.

History of the San Pedro Cactus

The San Pedro cactus (Trichocereus pachanoi) grows in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador and Peru at elevations ranging from 2000 to 3000 meters. San Pedro is also native to Argentina, Bolivia, and Chile, and it is grown in other regions of the world.

The San Pedro has been used since 1300 B.C. in Peru, with depictions of the San Pedro appearing on ceramic urns. The Spanish reported Peruvians drinking Achuma, a San Pedro-containing drink, when they first arrived in Peru.

Traditional use

Traditional uses of the San Pedro can be found throughout South and Middle America. Native shamans use it as a stimulant and medicine in rituals and ceremonies. It is utilized in a vision-seeking drink called Cimora in Peru and Bolivia. Achuma is another San Pedro-containing cocktail. According to legend, the abilities of San Pedro can undo “love witchcraft and counter all sorts of sorcery.”

Non-traditional use

San Pedro’s non-traditional use is primarily recreational. San Pedro is utilized for a psychedelic excursion known as ‘tripping’ due to its psychedelic qualities coming from the alkaloid Mescaline.

Recently, Echinopsis pachanoi has been used in therapeutic and’self-healing’ sessions, as well as microdosing. The San Pedro cactus is often available as a potted ornamental cactus.
