can i dry my peruvain tourch in the oven?
    #2247249 - 01/16/04 11:36 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

i just bought 1, 12" cutting of p. tourch. I cut it into chips and was wondering if i could lay they chips on a cookie sheet and dry them in the oven. what temp should i use when doing this so i don't break down the tourch's goodness  :eek:. If i can't use the oven would it be cool just to set the cactus out on plates to dry it? how long would it take? thnx for any info.

According to erowid the melting point of mesculine is 183-186? C (361-366 F)for the sulfate dihydrate form... so it would probably be safe to assume that heating in the oven at 150 F or so would be safe to do.....maybe heat for 45 minutes or so then flip the slices over and heat another 45 minutes or so......

Or if your still worried about destroying the goods....maybe make the slices as thin as possible; then try some of the methods used to dry shrooms(fan, dessicants, etc)

i have dried cactus chips in an oven set to 175f, with the foor cracked 1-2" to let out hot air. this allows convection to carry off moist hot air, replace it with cool dry air, and allow that to absorb more moisture. this allows for faster drying, and a more efficient drying practice.

This is cool...I didn't know you could make cracker dry slices of cactus to eat.  And the mescaline would be okay?  How would you measure dose then?  (gram-wise...pardon my ignorance  :blush:)

truly,

the alkaloids come out just fine.

since sources varry so much in quality [ratio of alkaloids to wet plant matter] and in ratio of plant matter to water to begin with, measuring portions/dosages by dry weight would be a rather subjective and unpredictable means of determining the level effects one s aiming for.

the best method is to sample a given amount of cactus from one stock, find the right level for the given stock and use that. if one has becoem accustomed to that stock by wet weight, they need only prepare their chips in multiples pf that amount of starting amterial.

if the stock to wich one is acstomed runs out then one must not assume the next source to be of the same quality, they must either be willing to accpet the unpredictability of the effects to come and be capable of keeping their sences if taken too far, or begin anew with small portoins/low doses until they find the right amount for the desired level of effect.
