It is possible, though I couldn't name any individual poisonus species. Its probably more likely that there are cacti that could give you permanent neurological damage than ones that would actually kill you.

If you get some pics of the cactus we could help you figure out if its really torch.

well my only doubts of it being torch, is that the ribs on mine are kinda thin. and all this pics i've seen the ribs are round-ish and meaty. i'm thinking maybe mine is just unhealthy? sorry i cant give a pic, but it's got the same structure and color and has big spikes just like the pics of torch i've seen.

if the ribs are much thinner and protrude more from the center, it could be just a ceres cactus, not active, a pic would be of great help, you've got to know at least one person with a digital camera

peace :rasta:

Sure sounds like a cereus.
Sometimes ribs of pedro's are thin but when you water your cactus they will become big and round in just a few hours.

Yeah it could be a Cereus peruvianus. Which if I remember correctly contains some chems which are potentially hazardous on a neurological level.

Peruvian Torch's are misidentified most of the time. Where did you get it? Torches are really rare unless special ordered from a cactus specialist or ethnobotany site. Pedros can be found at certain stores if you get lucky, but the potency of those can be week a lot of the time. I've also heard torches from BouncingB are very very weak.

I have young peruvian torches that have pronounced ribs, but look like pedros after they get bigger than a foot or so. They also need good lighting to start having a shape similar to pedro.

Not sure about the torches at bbear, but the pedro I've had was excellent. Haven't tried much though, some of the plants were just too nice to cut up.
