here is a rediculously easy extraction tek which aFOAF has found great success with. the end result produces not only mescaline but other goodies and alkaloids are also extracted so its not like you are wasting anything in the process and the spirit of the plant is preserved.a dose of about 50 grams dried peruvian torch is a good way to test for potency and still not be dissapointed in fact some have compared it to an all day "psychedelic lolipop." most Peruvian Torch skin from online vendors is like .8% to 1.2% mescaline. if intensity is your desire simply increase the dosage after you have tested the waters. the advantage to this method is that there is no slimy cactus tea or snot to drink, and no large amount of powder capsules bloating your stomach reducing nausea considerably and allowing for the possibility higher doses with less discomfort. the final extract could yield anywhere from 300-600 mg of mescaline in a crude tincture. method 1. (7-9 days total) The Sit and Soak. Materials: (for one dose) 50grams dried peruvian torch flesh powder Everclear or 99% Isopropyl rubbing alcohol (you can use 93% or 91% just make sure there is only ALCOHOL and WATER. when using isopropyl evaporation is important.) 1 glass jar big enough to hold the powder. Another Glass jar to hold the extract liquid. 1 large glass pyrex pie plate or baking dish (must use GLASS ONLY!! important!!!) Coffee filters, or a muslin, or a cheesecloth. Procedure: First put the torch powder in the glass jar, and pour your alcohol in covering the powder 2 inches or enough to double the contents of the jar.shake the jar vigorously then leave it to sit for 3 days shaking it from time to time. when your alcohol turns a greenish black it has absorbed enough alkaloids after three days then you carefully pour off the liquid into a seperate jar and filter it using the Coffee filters saving the powder. a tee shirt or a cheese cloth works well too. after straining off the greenish colored alcohol put the powder back in the original jar and add fresh alcohol. repeat three times. after you have let the powder soak for three pulls over 9 days the alcohol should stop turning a dark green and should be a light see-through green. this is how you know your powder got most of the goodies extracted. if you want you can pull until it's clear. Finally take the black alcohol you have collected in your other jar then put it in the big glass pyrex dish for evaporation. you can throw the cactus powder away. to evaporate: a fan blowing on the pyrex dish will dry in a few hours. drying can be sped up by letting the glass baking dish sit on a pot of boiling water, but make sure you use an ELECTRIC STOVE because a gas stove may ignite alcohol fumes. if you are in your kitchen make sure the fan is on and a door is open for adequate ventilation. the alcohol should evaporate quickly leaving a gooey black residue which can be scraped up, rolled into balls and frozen for storage.just make sure ALL THE ALCOHOL IS EVAPORATED., and this can be done by smelling the extraction, it shouldn't smell at all like alcohol. this gooey residue is mescaline freebase oil, chlorophyl, waxes, plant fat, and other alkaloids. if you used 99% isopropyl the goo will be more of a dry flaky crud called mescaline carbonate which can be scraped up and powdered. the mescaline carbonate is formed when the solvent has been disolved and the mescaline reacts with CO2 in the air to form a crystalized salt.
