San Pedro Powder Success!!!
Posted August 08 2009 - 08:05 PM
This past week I indulged myself in some of my own homegrown San Pedro that I harvested, despined, blended, cooking pot, strainer, 150F oven on a pyrex baking dish, days of drying the cactus mud and hand crumbling, then finally powdering the crushed evaporated cactus juice chunks in the electric coffee grinder, and stored in a small glass vial. Maybe 12in + cutting came out to about a gram or two of evap powder. No measurement taken.
I have sat on that cactus powder for a few months now. This week my wife went out of town to visit mommy. So I decided to take a day off from work to camp and trip all day on cactus powder in the forest. So I camped out the first nite to a full moon rising in the Palomar mountain of San Diego Co. The land of San Pedro, Datura, and Tree tobacco. I needed to test a harmaline/phalaris a extract. I did that wed nite and all I got was positive harmaline vibes with my beers and carne. Phalaris needs chemical testing for alkaloidial content. But its native to my land and I would of loved to discover its power.
Thursday morning after fighting with my DUI breathalizer I went to hike 10 miles in the state park for the first time. After checking in I parked and partook of the cactus powder. The powder was poured in a cup and enough water was used to make the powder into a liquid form. The water was cold and I would recommend warm water or vegetable juice. It went down easy and I chased it hard with fresh water. The taste was a little harsher then the phalaris/harmaline but not as bad a fresh cactus juice straight from the column.
I started the trip on a empty stomach. At a certain point I stopped the hike to take a bite to eat and drink some water. The eating and drinking which was lite, helped aid in the digestion of the cactus powder. The best part for all you guys there was absolutely no nasuea. With doubts of failure I stopped to rest on a large granite boulder to rest and smoke some sativa. As I smoked the two blended and I turned on. I sat there for awhile and was comletely turned on and went down the trail in complete awe.
Now for you newbies. San pedro does not get you high like acid or shrooms. Lets say that if you wold like a clear mind and to see the world clearly as it is. Then San pedro is for you. I feel that hallucinations stem from ego dissolution and meditation. I was on the move constantly which helps clear and ocus my mind. Staying still in one place for long periods of time is meditation.
Im to familiar with the experience to transmit ego changing effects. All I know is that the evap cactus juice powder not only stay during storage but is extremely clean. My recomendation is diluting powder in vegetable juice. It is far less bitter then fresh cactus juice. peace. e

I consumed it by rolling it into balls and taking them like pills. I got a dose I guess was about 200mgs of mescaline. Three hours in and I was doing good and so I took about a gram of mushrooms. Very good combo, the clarity and feeling of "rightness" the cactus gives combined with the brighter visuals and "circus" character of the mushrooms is very nice to say the least. Will definitely try that combo again with larger doses.
Mr. Writer you should give the cacti a try. Very clear headed, clean feeling experience.
As far as how powerful it is, it is gentler than LSD or shrooms, but don't underestimate it, 36" of San Pedro sent me on the most powerful trip I've ever had on anything.
Can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love that one more chance
Why can't we give love give love give love give love
give love give love give love give love give love
'Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
PB is just a dick. He knows it too.
Really sucks when you jump on the bandwagon, only to find it's the garbage truck.

i will be sitting with the native american church next weekend so i will be able to draw a comparison between peyote and san pedro experiences.

Sorry I got off on a tangent, but this was the most astounding trip of my life, and the cacti/fungi combo is most certainly one deserving of more research. That and cacti is just generally astounding and deserving of more research.
