Mescaline Addiction (Peyote & San Pedro Cacti)

 

Mescaline or peyote abuse can be treated at Hope by the Sea's California drug rehab. Peyote is a small, spineless cactus, Lophophora williamsii, whose principal active ingredient is the hallucinogen mescaline (3, 4, 5-trimethoxyphenethylamine). From earliest recorded time, peyote has been used by natives in northern Mexico and the southwestern United States as a part of their religious rites.

 

The top of the cactus above ground--also referred to as the crown--consists of disc-shaped buttons that are cut from the roots and dried. These buttons are generally chewed or soaked in water to produce an intoxicating liquid. The hallucinogenic dose of mescaline is about 0.3 to 0.5 grams and lasts about 12 hours. While peyote produced rich visual hallucinations that were important to the native peyote cults, the full spectrum of effects served as a chemically induced model of mental illness. Mescaline can be extracted from peyote or produced synthetically. Both peyote and mescaline are listed in the CSA as Schedule I hallucinogens.

The San Pedro cactus, Trichocereus pachanoi, is native to the high Andes in Peru, South America. Like Peyote, its principle active ingredient is mescaline.

 

Hope by the Sea offers an affordable drug and alcohol rehab in California's coastal Orange County area to help drug abusers and addicts begin the recovery process. The first step to recovery begins with the realization that the cycle of addiction can be broken. There is "Hope."
