Also question is, which cacti are hallucinogenic?
Mescaline is a psychedelic hallucinogen obtained from the small, spineless cactus Peyote (Lophophora williamsi), the San Pedro cactus, Peruvian torch cactus, and other mescaline-containing cacti.
Beside above, what kind of cactus gets you high? The San Pedro cactus, also known as Trichocereus pachanoi, is a fast-growing cactus that grows in Peru and Ecuador, where it has been used in rituals for 3000 years. It contains mescaline which is a strong hallucinogen.
Correspondingly, are all trichocereus psychoactive?
Some trichocereus cacti are indeed psychoactive, in that they contain mescaline. In 1974 all the Trichocereus species were reclassified into the Echinopsus genus, a move which is still under debate by botanists, because this puts so many plants with wildly different characteristics into the same genus.
How can you tell if a cactus is psychedelic?
The easiest way to determine if your specimen is not a San Pedro, but a toothpick cactus (S. Coryne) is to exam the spines and areoles. These usually come out of VERY enlarged white areoles in sets of 6-8 spines. When wet the spines can appear anywhere from tan to dark-brown and quickly fade to white.
