San Pedro Lookalikes
    #4042367 - 04/11/05 08:26 PM (9 years, 3 months ago)

My buddy and I are having a LAN party at his house tonight, so we decided to mix up a couple cups of Mescaline, use this prep.

Got about 3 feet of what looks like Pedro from my friend's front yard, but I'm not positive it's Pedro. I mean, it looks exactly like Pedro should look, but I was wondering if there might be some cacti that look very similar to Pedro. Of course, I know that Peruvian Torch looks almost just like Pedro, but has longer spines.

Just wanna make sure I'm not cookin' up a non-hallucinogenic cactus. So..cactus experts..there anything else that looks like Pedro?

Thanks!

Peruvian torch is active too, so what are you worried about?

I know...but I'm wondering if there's any other cactus besides Peruvian..something NOT active.

Maybe a picture? I think there are several lookalikes, if one is not familiar with cacti. Which I am not, so I wouldn't be much help in ID'ing. Good luck, though!

no one can really help you without a picture and i would suggest going to lengths to get one if you are not completly sure of your abilities to identify.

Cereus peruvianus is probably most commonly mistaken, it has thinner ribs and noticably different spines... look it up

Myrtillocactus geometrizans (Blue Candle) and Stetsonia coryne (Toothpick Cactus) are nursery plants commonly confused with San Pedro (Trichocereus/Echinopsis pachanoi).

If you live in California, the plant growing in your friend's front yard could be a Cereus species or San Pedro. I doubt it's anything else.

You need to post a picture.

i could scan a lot of pictures of pedro lookalikes from the last cactus book i got myself... they are so many that i wouldn't give myself the effort, not today at least.

tourist, if anyone confuses san pedro ( having seen it before ) with either of those cacti you mentioned, then they must be dumb as fuck, as they look nothing like san pedro.

no, their must be more closer matches than that, cause i just went through the trouble of extracting a cacti that is identical to san pedro (except the ridges were a little thinner than usual) and i got nothing out of it.

dirtyhippie, trying to aquire mesc from a san pedro is basically a 100 to 1 odds, and thats only if you can identify the cacti and prepare it correctly. if you cant do that, i would put it at 100,000 to one odds.

put away the experimenting stuff and just stick to shrooms and weed. you wont be disappointed that way.

jeez 100 to 1 odds? sounds a bit extreme to me

It gets mentioned a lot here that not all Trichocereus plants, even 'San Pedro' contain mesc, it depends on the clone. 100 to 1 are definatly not the odds.

I would like everyone interested in this plant to learn more about it before jumping into the experience it offers.

For me it has been 100%.
I attempted twice and had VERY satisfactory results from both times...

Get a clone which you know the potency of. That way it's relatively safe to assume that you are growing the goodness you're looking for.

Instead of buying cacti in nurseries, buy them from people who grow them for purposes other than decoration :wink: They will be more expensive but if you have somewhere sunny to plant them in they'll grow and multiply fast.

But which would you rather do - buy a cactus that is known to be potent, or take useless crap?

hey abermelin, i dont think rortingother people san pedro is the best way tog o about getting a rewarding mescaline experience... if uwant best results connect with the higher energies before harvesting/processing and focus intent and purpose ont he process.. make it a ritual and treat it as if it is sacred and enlightening... because it is!!
if someone jumpd my fence and harvested my pedros i would hope that they had a horrible if any experience! (either that or they were transformed by the sheer beauty and power)
peace
