Peyote Psychedelic Cactus
Peyote is a hallucinogenic species of cacti native to the southern United States, regions of Mexico and Peru. The powerful psychedelic mescaline grows naturally in this small button-shaped cactus. Peyote has been used for spiritual, religious and healing purposes by several Native-American and Mexican cultures for thousands of years. In addition, it has recently been studied to help treat severe depression and PTSD.
Peyote “buttons” which grow out of the top of the cactus are the mescaline-containing part of the plant. These buttons are usually dried for several different uses but can be soaked and used to make tea or other liquids. In most instances, they are dried and chewed. However, They can be ground into capsules or smoked when combined with cannabis or tobacco. You can buy dried Peyote in Canada from our online dispensary!
How to use Peyote
Peyote can be chewed or eaten whole, but this is generally reserved for fresh Peyote buttons. Once dried, the best method of ingestion is brewing them into tea. Buttons can be ground and soaked to help release the mescaline from the plant matter. A small dose of mescaline can be made from 7g of dried peyote buttons, a medium dose from 14g, and a strong dose would be made from 28g. Stronger doses should only be reserved for those who have had previous experience with peyote and are not recommended for first-time users. We do not recommend smoking Peyote.
Effects of Peyote
Peyote is a hallucinogen and causes distortions in the perception of reality. This can include experiencing auditory, emotional and visual stimulations that are not necessarily real. The active compound in Peyote, Mescaline, affects the bodies serotonin receptors, most effectively targeting those attached to the visual cortex. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that has a significant effect on most of our brain cells. Serotonin is one of our essential hormones and impacts your entire body. Not only does it help forge neural pathways between brain cells, but it also helps to regulate sleeping, eating, digestion and muscle control.
Though the exact effects of peyote are different for everyone, the most common impact, especially with larger doses, is hallucinations. Many people describe the high as feeling “dream-like.” Mescaline is a potent psychedelic, causing most people to have extremely vivid hallucinations. Mescaline, and other psychedelics, can affect multiple senses, and in some cases, can produce synesthesia when senses blend and users report “feeling colours” or “seeing sounds.” In some cases, peyote can significantly enhance the senses, causing your perception of them much more vibrant or sensational.
The most common intended use for peyote is to induce “visions.” In larger doses, mescaline can cause extremely vivid experiences not necessarily happening in the real world. On the other hand, they may feel hyper-real to the user. These visions can manifest themselves as part of the surrounding world or take you to a completely different place and time in your mind. For this reason, you should always have a spotter with you when using peyote to ensure your physical safety.
These visions can be both highly profound and highly overwhelming. Like with all hallucinogens, it’s best to set your intentions ahead of time. Remember that set and setting play a massive role in manifesting a more positive experience and avoiding the possibility of a “bad trip.” Peyote can unlock deep mysteries inside your mind but also feel very chaotic. The more positive feelings and emotions you bring into the experience, the more you will get out of it. These adverse effects can be intensified when peyote is mixed with alcohol or other stimulants, so it’s best not to use peyote in conjunction with any other substances.
The effects of peyote are usually felt approximately 30 minutes after ingestion. In most cases, people feel nauseous, and vomiting is very common. In addition, many people describe profuse sweating and subsequent chills. However, these side effects are usually mild. Approximately two hours after ingestion, peyote reaches its peak hallucinogenic effects. It’s good to plan your peyote use accordingly as these effects can last upwards of 8-12 hours, depending on the dose. Many compare the experience of too intense LSD “trips” or effective dose psilocybin use. Buy peyote from our Online DIspensary in Canada today!
Common Peyote Side Effects
The physical effects of peyote are similar to those of LSD or larger doses of psilocybin. Many people experience flushing and increased blood pressure, body temperature, heart rate and sweat production. It is not uncommon to experience appetite loss, difficulty concentrating or sleeping, numbness and weakness after the peyote has run its course. Severe nausea and vomiting are also quite common occurrences, but only in larger doses meant for inducing “visions.”
Peyote causes altered awareness, feelings and perception. It can also greatly impair your perception of time and your surroundings. Some people find the euphoria and hallucinations a little too intense, evoking anxiety, panic or paranoia.
Psychedelics fall into the hallucinogens category of psychoactive substances that causes changes in cognition, perception and mood. They achieve this by interacting with the body’s serotonin receptors, creating altered states of consciousness, or “trips.” Psychedelics affect all of the senses and can cause specific auditory, visual and psychological changes.
Psychedelics typically bind with the body’s serotonin receptors. Serotonin is one of our essential hormones and impacts your entire body. Not only does it help forge neural pathways between brain cells, but it also helps to regulate cognition, sensory perception, sleeping, eating, and digestion. Serotonin is also responsible for triggering hormones that increase arousal and trust. Large amounts of serotonin are likely responsible for the typical characteristics of heightened emotional closeness and an elevated sense of well-being felt by those who use psychedelics.
Other than changes in cognition and perception, one of the critical characteristics of psychedelics is ego-loss. This detachment from your own “perceived self” allows you to connect with your surroundings and others around you more intensely. As a result, the psychedelic experience is often spoken of when comparing states of intense meditation and both mystical and near-death experiences. The chemical compounds in DMT are also released naturally in the human brain at both birth and death.
