These Peruvian Torch Cacti will give you an amazing psychedelic experience!
The Peruvian Torch is the English name of a columnar Cactus from the Andes Mountains in Peru, South America.

The bitter-tasting ingredient Mescaline has a strong psychoactive effect on people and has been used for centuries. Consuming Peruvian Torch causes strong hallucinations and psychedelic symptoms in users during a trip. These psychoactive effects have been known to the indigenous people of Peru for thousands of years. When looking at the amount of mescaline in Peruvian Torch, it is probably just as high as the other popular San Pedro cactus. It is known to grow at a rapid pace: 1 to 2 feet (0.3 to 0.6 meters) per year. The original locations where Peruvian Torch is found is located at an altitude of 1000 to 3000 feet (0.3 – 0.9 kilometers).
Psychedelic to the core!
The Peruvian Torch is seen as a magical and holy cactus by Peruvian shamans and healers. The cactus has been used for many years to contact the gods and the spiritual world. During a trip, users experience visionary and predictive dreams. Torch cacti are known for being cultivated by the indigenous people of Peru Inca and their predecessors as far back as 900 BC for religious purposes. Among cacti in general it is considered the most psychoactive, along with the San Pedro and Peyote cacti. When completely dried, Peruvian Torch contains around 0,5% mescaline – one of the most popular hallucinogenic drugs used by Native American tribes.
Mescaline causes visual hallucinations and altered states of consciousness that can be either pleasant or emotionally disturbing, depending on the unique reactions of the user. The drug is not known to be physically addictive, but can cause side effects such as nausea, diarrhea and vomiting. Some Native American tribes have taken these side effects to be beneficial, and they see it as a special form of physical cleansing that is included in rituals with the drug. Mescaline is primarily used as a recreational drug and is also used as an adjunct to various types of meditation and psychedelic therapy.
Using Peruvian Torch
There are several ways one can consume this psychedelic cactus. Drinking tea made from the Peruvian Torch is probably one of the oldest known examples of psychedelic drug use. In most cases, the root tip is cut off and then dried. These heads are then dried to make disc-shaped buttons. These buds are usually chewed or soaked in water to produce a psychedelic tea. It can also be consumed raw or dried, but the taste is extremely bitter.
