Followed MJ's method of san pedro preparation with no avail
    #3277566 - 10/26/04 01:03 AM (17 years, 3 hours ago)

-Me and a friend took a 14" San pedro cactus and chopped it up into stars.
-Chopped the stars into fourths.
-Put one cup of cactus water to a cup of cactus and blended it thoroughly.
-Did the same with rest of cactus bits , added all to a large pan.
-We then added a little more water to the pan and slowly brought it to a steady boil.
-Boiled down for about 3.5 hours until there was only a small amount of liquid left, then strained

My friend drank what was strained and got zero effects. Next day we took the stuff we strained and re-boiled it but for 9 hours (we thought we didn't boil long enough the first time).. my friend drank the product from the second try with no effects.

What went wrong?

Not sure... I'd think with 14" of it you would feel at least a little something. he experienced no effects whatsoever and fell asleep about 2-3 hours afterwards.

Where did you get the cacti from? It doesnt sound like san pedro, with mescaline.

Very strange. Even a thin pedro that long should make your friend at least feel something, unless he's a mescaline hard-head.

How thick was the cactus? Was the drink bitter? Tell us more.

You probably had a species of the genera cereus rather than Thricacereus pachanoi.

There are several look-a-like cacti which resemble San Pedro. There are over 13 varieties of san pedro or rather 13 varities of Thriococereus sp.

mj

Believe me when I say it works. And as noted above, even a 6-10 inch cacti would have given you some effects.

It is my belief that you ate a cactus which was something other than San Pedro.

I and dozens of my friends have used this method since the early 1970s when we were first turned onto san pedro. If it is a real cactus than you would have felt the effects.

7" isn't much. I've done 16" with only dreamy thoughts and a horrible amphetamine comedown.

If san pedro is taken care of too well, it can come out very impotent.

Perhaps he meant by weight. If a cactus is watered as frequently as you can without killing it, it will weigh more because of the water, even become thicker. 1 pound of this would not be equal to a pound of stressed cacti, which could possibly be 2 feet worth.

You of all people should know the alkaloids are something of a self-defense mechanism. If a cactus is well cared for, it won't produce as many alkaloids and will be less potent. Come on now... It 'o' does make sense.

Very well. I can still believe it was san pedro. No one has asked him if he was on any meds. A med that can kill your roll can also kill your serotonergic trip.

Although the stressing/alkaloid theory is used quite a lot, it's also been bashed a lot, and I've never seen actual proof that its true besides the very obvious weight of the cactus dropping, so that ratio goes up.

And, sometimes people don't trip off 14". Like ayrios said, an SSRI could weaken the hell out of a trip on many many substances

http://forums.lycaeum.org/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=2&t=001445

But, probably not to the degree that it kills an MDMA trip.

True. It won't be as extreme with a true psychedelic like mescaline...

I don't think there's any argument that cactus potency varies wildly... We've seen too many examples here. The thickness was never mentioned also. I absolutely believe it's possible to not trip off of 14" though.

Try this:

After boiling for a couple hrs (2), strain off the plant matter before you boil the solution down very much at all (add more water if you need, but I normally don't). I like to strain when there is still lotsa water.

Store the strained water in a container or start boiling it down in a separate pot if you want/have a lot.

Take the strained cactus matter and throw it back in the original pot with some more water. Boil for another hour/two. Strain this and collect the filtered cactus juice. Throw the filtered juice in with the other strained juice you have evap'ing/storing.

Do this one more time with the cactus matter again. More water and back in the pot for a while. By the time you have finished the third extract (remember to combine all three filtrated liquids into one pot/container for evap'ing), the plant matter should taste like spongy-cardboard with no bitter/alkaloid taste whatsoever. It also starts to lose some color.

So know you got a shitload of juice (that's why you start boiling one down while you do the next extract), that you can boil down to a few ounces. Yes that is right...a few ounces. I've heard some people say a shot but that is pushing it.

On Friday I did 23" of both Peruvians and Pachanoi (13" and 10" respectively) and was able to boil it down to about 4-5 ounces. It starts to get to a "heavy cream" consistency- you're definitely good by then. You can stop before then but don't need too. Depends on what you wanna do.

Note: When the solution reaches a thick green color (losing lotsa water- maybe at like 12 ounces or so) it would be of benefit to set up a double boiler. This prevents the bottom heat source from "burning" mescaline molecules that are touching/resting at the bottom(since juice is so concentrated). Another way to avoid this is to just stir for like the last half hour to hour. Now while this is not necessary(double boiler/stirring), it probably helps to keep some extra mescaline in your sample.

I agree that 14" shoulda got you off, even with one extraction (it helps that it was such a long one). So maybe you do really have a different variety of Trich.

Either way, this syrup I refer to is called Nan's (from thenook.org) Pedro Syrup...

But they way I do it is like a replica of MJShroomer's tek, just re-worked to fit the syrup bill.

It's my blend of the two techniques...works wonders.

MJ- I wanted to thank you for making that pictorial, b/c I have referred to it multiple times. Thanks again man for the good contribution- people at the Shroomery really appreciate it!

I have also used BBB for san pedro. I have no idea what you did. But when I have prepared it for dozens of people over a thirty year period in the same way and no one ebver had a problem. And I get many emails form others ywho use my preaparation method.

I can say no more.

I've heard a lot of success with MJ's method. Perhaps more than any other method I've read about. Thats probably because it seems pretty foolproof. However, there do seem to be a lot of less potent pedros out there, and whether its 14", 12", whatever, it simply might not be enough. Perhaps the particular cactus is too young, too skinny, lots of things.

I'll be giving 14" a shot of a few random pedro this friday. Some of it is from BBB and some is from an ebay vendor. Using MJ's method. Whether it works out or not I'll be sure to post back.

Edit: And MJ, I'd like to give you congrats on clearly having excellent sources of cacti for the past 30 years. You clearly have great source, and preperation if you've been preparing people with even 6"-10" doses and achieving effects. Perhaps its just your trippy charm that gets them tripping before the mesc even sets in? :wink:

I really wish people would give up this plant alkaloid theory shennaningans. The presence of alkaloids in plants seems to have a WIDE variety of usages, and times of no water increasing the alkaloid content of a pedro or peyote sounds plausible, but there's no studies that back it up, and there've been many eloquent refutations, some being that the biosynthetic pathway may require water, further reducing the the water retention of the cactus.

Asking any respected, and degree holding, plant enthuseist they'll say alkaloids are likely a plant protection mechanism with MANY exceptions. If someone were to ask me what I think the "purpose" of mescaline being in the cactus is, my (correct) response is, "I don't know." And regarding the alkaloid level based on drought conditions, the correct answer is "studies have not been done, so i don't know."


Regarding the SSRI theory, though we can't be completely sure that mescaline doesn't have some sort of Serotonin (and subtype) cross itnerference, i'd venture to say that an SSRI may not have a direct effect on the Mescaline. Since mescaline is more structurally similar to Dopamine and Noepinephrine (i'm basing this on the pharmaological structure to action theory), i'd say that it probably acts on those receptors and not on Serotonin receptors (though perhaps it might act on S3 which is well known for producing nausea). Any diminishing effect SSRI's might have may be due to secondary interference due to hightened serotonin receptor activity. MDMA has some interesting properties as it acts as a norepinephrine agonist and a serotonin agonist. And has some interesting mechanisms involved with reuptake "vaccuums" on neurons which explains the interference of SSRIs, but again we can't pin it down since SSRI's act globally on all Serotonin receptor types and subtypes.


blah blah blah blah blah.


regarding the cactus inefectiveness. The best answer is "who knows"

Alright, but any scientist who has studied psychedelics will tell you mescaline does act on serotonin receptors. I've never heard anyone argue that.

It doesn't matter why the cactus alkaloids vary, just that they do indeed, therefore it is possible to not trip off that amount of cactus.

While everything I've read does suggest this, I've not been able to find true proof on mescaline or related phenethylamines and this.

This could be because most information available online is on studies relating to LSD, if you search for mescaline and related terms, you'll usually get something like:

'LSD and related drugs (Mescaline, Psilocybin) act on the 5HT2 receptors, etc, etc, etc...'

I was under the impression that all PEAs are known to act primarily on serotonin, as well as some (all?) tryptamines.

Quite possibly. I'm just saying I've never seen it proven for Mescaline, which holds a different enough structure than tryptamines. Like neuro said, much closer to dopamine.

As for all phenethylamines acting the same, I'm fairly sure MDMA has some different attributes. Amphetamine and methamphetamine are also phenethylamines, but I'm assuming you meant all hallucinogenic PEAs.

I did, though methamphetamine has considerable serotonergic properties compared to the other strictly stimulant amps. I for one find it very empathic and the chemistry agrees.

The studies haven't been done, we need to do things like immunocytochemistry and autoradiography to determine exactly what's going on. Current theory states that there is serotonin cross interference, that is agonist of the 5-HT2, but direct binding is questionable. The lift and excitement from PEAs comes from NE and DA agonist action most likely by competitive binding to the receptor.

MDMA and Amphetamine are serotonin agonists, but it's not proven, or even theorized that they bind to the receptor. Literature states that methamphetamine and mdma stimulate the release of serotonin. LSD stimulates 5-HT2a receptors, they're both classified as agonists, but sometimes people wrongly infer that agonist implies direct receptor stimulation. Agonists have many different mechanisms of action.

Pedro isn't that strong. I never get much from it. Not compared to Peruvianus. just my two cents.

Oon another note, I just had to cut down a Cardon Grande which was starting to rot at the base, and I licked it but it wasn't the slightest bit bitter. I'll bet the whole foot of it which is fairly thick wouldn't do squat.

Mescaline is also an indole as well as a phenylethylamine.

I should also like to point out that some people buy cereus cacti which have nothing to do with trichocereus cacti which contain mescaline.

I have, over the years, prepared hundreds of potions of san pedro and everyone who did the sam pedro I prepared all reported a most rewarding experience from the chimora juice.

And many members here have alsop prepared it this way with positive results.

I've only had great success with mj's method. My girlfriend recently used it and had a very strong experience. She was kinda out of it for 2 days after as well ;P

As for the cactus that licked and no bitterness.. sounds pretty bad, never had one like that. Where'd you get it from?

MJ?s Method works but, in my case, I have problems getting enough mescaline into my system for a full trip.
Therefore I dry the cactus, cut out the wodden core and grind it in a coffeegrinder. I let the powder steep in 96% alcohol for at least 2 weeks. Then I filter out the, by then, darkgreen alcohol. I let most of the alcohol evaporate in front of a fan. Then I add acidic water to it. (made acidic with white vinegar)Now I let evaporate the rest of the alcohol from the water. Then I put the now green water in the freezer overnight.(with a minimal amount of alcohol left in the water, the water will not freeeze in the freezer) The Green (the chlorophyl) is soluble in alcohol but not in water. In the freezer it sinks to the bottom of the glass. After this has happened (usually within 24 hours)I warm up the water a little bit to dissolve any mescaline that also might have been sunk to the bottom. (cold water does not hold alkaloids easily) The chlorophyl will not again dissolve in the water. Now I filter the chlorophyl out of the water with a coffeeefilter. A brownish water remains. This water is extremely! bitter. I then let the water dry up and ingest the remaining powder. (from 100g of dry cactus the powder weighs 2 grams at the most) I assume the powder to be approximately 25% pure alkaloids. The powder works quick and is for me the only way to get enough alkaloids for a full trip into my system.

I meant:I let the powder sit in the alcohol for at least 2 weeks. I don?t use any heat.

you got effects. mescaline at low dosages puts you to sleep. i ate a 5yr old peyote and this happened.

the learning curve on successful cacti processing is extremely steep, here is something a skilled person told me about this process:

Quote:



I've been doing San Pedro since god knows when, and i use to drink it but i didn't really feel the strong effects like the tar base. i just got off work and now I'm bored and stoned, so I'll just tell you what i do hehe; i take the cacti and put it in the freezer for a day then i pull it out and let it thaw, then i cut it up in bread slices, then boil it in a big pot of water w/ a whole lemon/lime for 8 hours(yes 8 hours) and add water when it gets low (you'll do this only a couple times), after the 8 hours i filter the San Pedro bread slices thru a t-shirt and squeeze it hard to get everything out into the the pot of water, then i throw that San Pedro slices away and boil down the San Pedro water until it forms into tar(really really thick stuff) be careful not to burn it(constantly stir the tar or it will burn, the color should be brown to almost a black color), then pour the tar into a baking pan/dish (you will need to add in a little more water and boil that down into tar to cuz there some tar that sicks to the pot you'll probably do this a couple times and make sure to spray Pam onto the pan or the tar will stick like glue) pour it on there nice and even then put it in the freezer for a week (it takes forever for the tar to freeze) after a week take the tar and roll a little bit into aspirin size pills or gumball size (hurry up with this cuz the tar melts quickly and gets all over your hands), after rolling them into balls put them back into the freezer for a day or two and they should be frozen inside and out. and swallow each tar ball with some orange juice thru out an half hour, so the tar can settle. that's what i do, for some reason when i cook San Pedro down into a drink form and drink it i usually throw up, but with the tar base form i never do and for some reason the effects are stronger. i use 3 pounds of San Pedro per dose and after i boil it into tar i get 30 grams.






apparently MJ's method doesnt work, or you better have some potent ass cacti. He mentions using 3 pounds of cacti, does anyone know the avg weight per foot of cacti? also, use a few drops of food grade phosphoric acid whenever you do a plant/water extraction.

Other factors aside, you'll want to do it this way, because if you've ever gotten to the last step in MJ's method, it yeilds as nasty substance akin to that of sticky snot. Ive drunk ayahuasca, eaten straight shrooms, even eaten straight cannabutter, but theres no way in hell that i would ever eat that snot.

There is no snot left in the liquid drink at the end of the strain job. The only snot is when the pulp is separated in the blender from the water. One substance on top (the snotty pulp from the cactus is at the top of the blemder and is poured into the pot for cooking. The water liquid in the bottom half of the pot stays below for about 20 minutes into the boiling. When the two remix, they becomes a liquid form. And it is much easier to swallow a gulp of liquid than to chew fresh or dried peyote buttons which do taste like shit in your mouth. San pedro is very gentle on the system compared to the many alkaloids in peyote.

There are only a few alkaloids in San Pedro with mescaline being the primary active alkaloidal ingredient in the San Pedro. Peyote has dozens of various alkaloids in them. sometimes peoples body rejects them (causing vomiting and nausea), and while chewing buttons is gross, swallowing a drink of liquid without touching the top of your tongue to the bridge of your mouth, hardly leaves any nasty taste except a slight bitterness.

As for 3 pounds, the average dosage for San pedro is a one to one and a half pound one foot long and two and a half to three inches or so of thickness.. That is the equivalent of 300-500 milligrams of mescaline sulfate or what is considered to be a clinical dosage.

I have dose hundreds of people with this cacti if not a few thousand people over a thirty year period.

If you have the right cacti you will get off and you will not get sick.

Some people buy a cereus cactus which is not the same as a thricocereus cactus.

have a shroomy day

you quoted yourself.....

well, i got a snotty nasty substance when i did mine, but i believe i used a cereus by mistake, so of course it didnt work, but either way the result seems to yeild snot, as is pictured in your tek. or does the pedro have different physical properties than other cacti? maybe i boiled mine down too far, but if i hadnt i would have been left with a quart of burnt broccoli juice.

Quote:

so are you saying your prior reccomendation of 3 pounds is incorrect?

this is a method i tried that may have worked had i used the right cacti: once you aquire the sticky snot, stick it in a dehydrator on one of the plastic fruitroll sheets that comes with it and leave it their till its like one big crystal. break it up and mix it in a shake. you cant taste it and it doesnt turn to snot immediately.

how long can you leave cactus frozen?

and if you have a cactus that has been frozen for a long time would it be possible to put it in enough water to cover it up, defrost it like so and then cut into stars boil for an hr or two and drink it?
would it work?
im tired of drinking snot always throw up in the middle of the trip.
