San Pedro Huachuma

San Pedro, also known as Huachuma, is a cactus that originally grows in the Andes of South America. This cactus contains mescaline which has a consciousness-changing effect and has been used for thousands of years in ceremonies and rituals. The use of San Pedro cactus is completely safe as long as it is not combined with other psychoactive substances and / or medication.

Where ayahuasca connects us with the cosmos, the cactus will connect us to mother earth.


San Pedro Huachuma is generally experienced as relatively mild. You are usually not taken against your will to states of consciousness where you do not want to be. The plant requires some effort from the traveler, you are, as it were, the director of your own journey. If you wish, you can still enter transformative states of consciousness and heal your Self from there. Because your heart chakra is activated, it is possible to do this with gentleness and love. The cactus helps to purify your own energy and align your chakras. San Pedro Huachuma has a strong meditative quality. It stops the flow of thoughts and brings you back to the here and now. This makes you more in harmony with yourself.


San Pedro Huachuma is considered a male plant. It places practical problems in a different light, often leading to a simple solution. Are you struggling with earthly matters in your life that you feel you have no control over? Then you have a powerful ally in the cactus.

For even more individual tuning, it is possible to enhance the experience by adding bodywork or soundwork during the journey. Deeper layers of the body are now accessible to touch and vibration.

After taking the medicine, it often takes up to two hours for the spirit of the plant to manifest itself. You will then remain on a plateau of altered consciousness for hours. Eventually you will land very slowly again, the total amount of time is around 12 to 14 hours. San Pedro Huachuma does not require any specific diet in preparation as long as your stomach is empty at the time of ingestion.

The self carried out preparation process can take up to 24 hours. Ultimately, there is juice left over that is ready for consumption. The advantage of this method is that all fibers are removed. This makes the medicine easier to absorb and physical unpleasant sensations are limited.
