100+yrs old tsunami ("ariocarpus fissuratus")
    #919771 - 09/30/02 05:35 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)



hi there, thanks to all for the interest. i have edited this post with some additional notes, to respond to various questions received.
1. analysis show no mescaline, but an extreme variety of other alkaloids. As noted, the Huichol Indian shamans consider it a magical plant, more potent than peyote. However, there are no really reliable bioessays reported that i could find in the literature (except only for a few, second hand reports i found scattered in message boards here and there, nothing too scientific. experts, like Trout and Murple, believe the shamans traditions, as well as the results of alkaloid analysis, warrant the need for more studies.

2. this is an endangered and protected species. I purchased it from a reputable supplier, but I am not 100% sure of whether the sale is legal.

3. the age is guessed from size. this is one of the slowest growing organisms, period, much slower than lophophora. the size of the one in the pic is approx 7''. I have many other sizes and varieties of ariocarpus, a truly fascinating being. I have some 1'' diam size ones,which I call "babies", but are 10-15 yrs old.

4. as for as ingestion, i guess any method that works for pedro or peyote would work for this species. i certainly would never attempt to do so: the magic here is simply of getting to chat with this old dude, who sometimes gives me precious advice!

It's a mescaline containing cacti.
A very cool plant. I want one of those.

Sunami (Ariocarpus fissuratus) Sometimes known as living rock, or dry whiskey. Considered by some to be more potent than peyote.

Where did you get it? Owning a 100+ tsunami is a bit shady from an ethical/ ecological perspective. Have to say its a cool plant though.

In reply to:

I don't think mescaline has ever been found in Ariocarpus fissuratus.

And yeah, pretty sketchy ecologically...nice plant anyway.

i know those are legal on the united states, and can actually be purchased though a few online vendors. if you want to pm me, i can send you a link. the only thing i want to know is...is how to prepare this thing. thay claim it can be dried.......but theres an "elixer" you can makle out of it also.

oh and heres some info that agrees with the no mescaline statement:) i got it from a web site.....this is not my info:)

Though it contains no mescaline it is considered by the Tarahumara to be more powerful than L. williamsii and is used by them as a narcotic and magical plant. It is often made into a drink which it is said causes robbers to be powerless to steal anything. Also used to remedy fevers and ease rheumatic pains. It is often called "sunami," "hikuli sunami," "chautle," "peyote cimarron" (wild peyote), or "living rock," and is considered a "false peyote."

hope that helps guys :smile:

No mescaline is correct, but it contains compounds similar to mescaline causing very simila, but to some, more intense effects. "the Indians regard them as 'an evil,' dangerous because they are somewhat stronger than peyote and 'will drive people mad' when ingested. They are not recommended" (Stafford, 3rd edition 1992).

from what i gather, the active alkaloids produce "tropane" like effects, rather than the entheogenic ones produced by mescaline. however, i'm going to pass on this one. a part from the fact that they're an endangered species (no different than peyote), they look so scary that i confess i would not dare partake. however, i'm always interested in reports should anybody give it a shot ....

I misspoke earlier, there is no mescaline in sunami, but it does contain horedine, N-methyltyramine, and N-methyl-3,4-dimethoxy-B-phenethylamine. It is sometimes used in place of peyote.
The dangerous, evil cacti you are talking about is tsuwiri. That is also known as false peyote.
