The San Pedro (Holy Peter) is a fast growing cactus that originally grows in Peru and Ecuador. It contains mescaline, a psychoactive substance that also occurs in the holy Peyote cactus. The San Pedro contains less mescaline but is easier to cultivate and grows faster.

Mescaline is a hallucinogen (in smaller doses it can be used as an aphrodisiac). The visions have a religious character. Mystic, ecstatic, euphoric and a strong sense of colors. All forms of perception change. These effects will start 1 hour after consumption and last up to 12 hours.
The San Pedro is supplied in a pot or as a slice of 3 inches in average. These "cuttings" can be kept for several months (on a piece of paper, avoid direct sunlight). As soon as the San Pedro is put in soil it will root immediately. In the winter it hardly needs any water and it will barely grow. In the summer the San Pedro will grow a couple of inches and will develop side arms. It can have more water and can be kept outside on nice days. See the literature on handling cacti for more information. Consumers cut off a slice of 3 to 6 inch. Peel the San Pedro. Leave the skin or scrape the inside of the skin. This is where most of the mescaline is. The fresh pieces of skin can be eaten slowly. Grinding the dried pieces of skin and boiling it in half a liter of water for 8 hours can also make a tea. Filter and drink slowly. It'll be better though to make an extract by boiling the powder in 250 ml of water with the juice of 2 lemons for half an hour. Pass all of it through a handkerchief. Save the liquid and boil the San Pedro in 250 ml of water with the juice of 1 lemon for half an hour. Pass the liquid through a handkerchief again and repeat the last step. The juice is drunk in the course of half an hour. San Pedro can best be experienced in nature or in a quiet environment. Make sure you take care of the ambiance: candlelight instead of electric light, incense, etc.
The right dosage should be determined experimentally. A normal dose of mescaline is anything from 0,3 to 0,8 grams, approximately the content of 3 to 6 inch of San Pedro with a girth of 3 inch. The content of mescaline can vary extensively between different cacti. You also need to consider bodyweight and individual sensitivity. Circa 10 grams of the dried San Pedro is a good average dose.
Some people will feel unwell after ingestion of mescaline. To test your response, consume the San Pedro slowly, in the course of 45 minutes for example. The San Pedro cactus is hallucinogenic and visionary. Individuals with psychological problems should not use San Pedro at all. More than 1,5 grams of mescaline can cause liver-dysfunction and eventually death due to paralyzed bronchial tube.
