A Guide to Preparing San Pedro Cactus

How to Brew San Pedro Cactus

Here are a few good ways to brew San Pedro cactus (mescaline): the traditional method used by shamans, and the method used regularly by people in the united states. Plus an evaporation method that is used to reduce the tea and eventually capsulize it.


  1. Skin your cactus.Start by de-spinning the cactus and cutting slits down the length of the cactus. You can then carefully peel off the waxy skin of the cactus (illustration is wasteful of green flesh). Then take your knife (preferably a serrated knife) and cut away the dark green flesh until you get to the core. Dispose of the waxy skin, core and most of the white flesh
  2. Prepare the flesh.
    • Traditional method. Take the flesh and cut it into small chunks; put your chunks in a bowl and use a potato masher to pulverize it.
    • Modern method. Take your cactus flesh and cut into small chunks; throw the chunks in the blender. Add water so it just covers it barely. Blend until pulverized.
  3. Take your flesh puree and pour it into a crock pot.
  4. Add just about enough water to fill the crock pot.
  5. Add the juice of 2 lemons.
  6. Bring to a very light boil and cook for 6hrs.If you´re following the traditional method it's probably a good idea to pulverize some more with your potato masher and let cook for another 12-36hrs. If you used a blender then you should be done with cooking.
  7. Filter the pulp.Cut a nice big square out of a clean T-shirt. Put the shirt over a big bowl and use a rubber band to hold the shirt in place. Pour your pulp/juice mixture through the strainer and let sit.
  8. Let the pulp cool and wrap it in the shirt to squeeze the remaining liquid out.
  9. Dispose of the pulp.
  10. Make tea.Pour the juice into a pot and boil down very slowly at low heat. At this point it might help to use a fan to make it evaporate more quickly. After about 2 hrs until it's approx 2 ounces of liquid or one double shot.
  11. Make resin.Evaporate it down to about 1oz of liquid in a pot using heat and a fan and then pour into a glass pie pan and heat it with a fan for about 24hrs. You will end up with some resin like substance that can be scraped up into a capsule and taken or rolled into balls and coated with sugar and lemon juice to make a little candy.

    Community Answer
    It took about 2 hours for me on an empty stomach. I thought it wasn't going to work because it took so long, but I was wrong.
  • Question
    Can I trip off eating raw San Pedro flesh?

    Community Answer
    Better results will be found when brewed. This because the chemicals which make you trip will be extracted.
  • Question
    How much cactus is for one batch?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    The amount of cactus required for one batch is approx 6 inches per person. So if you are brewing for two people, or two doses, it would be about 12 inches.
