    @empbac Thats a shit load of cactus to eat, I dont see how you can eat that much. Why dont you boil it down?

  19. Jeffery Goines says:

    She could have explained how to extract mescaline if she wanted to be really helpful.

  25. Sam Ann says:

  26. Ben Martin says:

  27. Ronald James says:

  28. shyman1 says:

    I hope she knows that this plant contains mescalin, one of the strongest psychedelic chemicals.

  31. gootch h says:

    it pretty much says its a cactus it likes hot weather (no shit!)

    dont drowned in water (that's obvious)

    and theyre prickly (really?)

  32. WestLosFightsENT says:

    @IndigoVagrant yea also mind the fact that its a drug lol.

  33. WestLosFightsENT says:

    @RyanSC12 lol i was wondering the same thing too.. next thing you know everyone is gonna be blaming her for overdosing on san pedro lol =P

  34. PixelShifter says:

    I wonder if she know that the this cactus is psychoactive….

  35. IndigoVagrant says:

    Cactus smoothies are a bad idea. Too much plant material.

    Lemon extraction is necessary.

  36. Davey Face says:

    you need about 2 pounds probably at least 2-3 feet more is better if you have leftovers your good but if its not enough then its a waste

  37. empbac says:

    Depends on the mescaline content of the particular cutting; it can vary. If you're into chemistry, you could do an easy acid/base extraction and take it in pill form, otherwise it's supposed to be 8-12" for one "hit". A moderate to heavy trip would likely be about 2', and it also depends on your body weight. If you are on the lighter side you won't need as much as someone who is 200+ lbs (90+ kilos).

  38. Brian Sobczak says:

    lol, I just get confused by the fact that it is legal to own/buy/sell/grow san pedro cactus and many ppl do just thinking it's a friendly house plant but at the same time it contains mescaline which definitely isn't legal.

  39. shunyotube says:

    How interesting…to have this presented in this way. When fascism is the rule, it's smart, but there is a tad of a risk that someone may get the wrong idea. Still, love the vid.
