I've been growing this cactus from seed for the past five years (since ~ 2016), it got sold to me as Trichocereus peruvianus from a vendor on eBay. I've been under a lot of stress lately and was planning on finally consuming mescaline and also trying out Loveall's extraction procedure. I just wanted some input on whether or not this cacti is psychoactive and if I could go about extracting it anytime soon for a solid mescaline dose? I was also curious if the number of ribs on a cactus has anything to do with psychoactivity / mescaline content? Since I started a fresh grow of what was said to be bridgesii on magicgardenseeds, doesn't resemble it, and most of them have 8 ribs.

Good quality Syrian rue (Peganum harmala) for an incredible price!

KT - I'd wait until one of the limbs on the 5 year old specimen has reached about 18". They all look a little on the short side to me. At a push, you might get some success with the biggest bit but I'm still inclined to believe the alkaloids will be more concentrated nearer the growing tip. Maybe that's nonsense but I'd rather wait until that piece on the previously cut long stem has reached 40cm so you can do a 'cut and shut'.

Sorry to hear you've been so stressed lately. One thing that will reduce your stress a tiny bit is drawing your benzene rings with three separate double bonds - it makes electron pair movement in reaction schemes a lot easier to work out Wink (This was an early piece of advice given to me by real organic chemists. Maybe not the bit about stress.)

If you're feeling particularly desperate then the biggest bit should do the job. It would still be best if you could give it a month's conditioning - or longer - in the dark before consumption. Something that has worked for me - and I note that it is also a part of traditional indigenous San Pedro use - is incorporating an element of ritual journey into the experience.

This means arranging to get away from your home space (and away from the city). And it seems to make for a more... special kind of experience - you do, of course, have to choose the location wisely though.




“There is a way of manipulating matter and energy so as to produce what modern scientists call 'a field of force'. The field acts on the observer and puts him in a privileged position vis-à-vis the universe. From this position he has access to the realities which are ordinarily hidden from us by time and space, matter and energy. This is what we call the Great Work."
― Jacques Bergier, quoting Fulcanelli

KT its in the Peruvianus spectrum. But honestly the features look more Cuzcoensis than pure Peruvianus. Paler green color, smaller areoles, not that thick, super spiny, weak central spine. Cuzcoensis or Peruzco. It should be active, but don't expect it to be very strong.

Those seedlings don't look right for Bridgesii. Spines are wrong and too many ribs.

There are many hybrid seedlings being grown out these days. Makes it more challenging to get a definitive i.d.


P.S.
Spines on pure Bridgesii look like this:
