does anyone know what the ethnobotanical properties of the saguero cactus are?

the generals and polliticians who advocate war should be made to wade in the truth of it
they should spend sleepless nights shivering with fear and by day crawl in to the death pit-crass

Carnegiea gigantea - Saguaro
(Cactaceae) From SW America and Mexico, the largest columnar branching cacti, reaching some 50ft and attaining a diameter of 1-21ft, bearing white funnel shaped flowers. Important medicine among the Indians, the basis of a ceremonial fermented potion. Contain various pharmacologically active alkaloids such as Carnegine, Arizonine, Dopamine, 3-Methoxytyramine, 3,4-Dimethoxyphenethylamine and several tetrahydroisoquinolines. Another alkaloids of this species called Gigantine, is a phenolic alkaloid which was thought to be hallucinogenic in an animal study but this conclusion has since been questioned

we are putting together a listing of sacred cactus with details and alkoloid content on the Emporium, you may want to check it out.
