    No L. Williamsii listed but this guy has the hugest selection of cacti and succulent seeds I've seen and good prices. The cactus king.... plus him and his wife are like experts in the field.

    @iHearAll I've done cacti before but prepared by someone else's. Any tips on brewing a tea ? I've read everything on how to prepair it. Just wondering on any tips from you that may help. Thanks much appreciation

    i would do a polarized extraction process. but only if you have a vac purge option. also, iv never made tea or done the polarized tek using cactus. but ftom experience with lsa alkaloids, id say thats the way to go

    Been stuck lately, spiritual and mental.. So being some time scene my last experience with cacti . I went small and used 6" of Peruvian torch. I despined it and chopped the whole thing.. ( I know I know the xylom is the money) I don't care ..lol..steeped it in equal amount of water to volume of cactus adding a little along the way.. I put a tablespoon of cider vinegar in during steeping..
    I steeped for two or so hours..filtered and pressed the pulp I had 1 and a half cup of tea and ate the pulp later lol..
    After 45 or so minutes if could feel the unmistakable feeling overcome my body.
    Peak hit about 2 hours in and slowly waned coming and going in waves..
    It was a small dose but I played it safe and to my delight I was in a calm contentment for 6 hours. It was really nice. I didn't however get a spiritual cleansing. Like I said played it safe on dose.. I'm thinking for me I'm going to use 18" next time..
    Notable was the pain releaf I felt in my back during that time. And no nerve pain..

    Picked up a few clearance plants at a box store. The two cactus I picked up for 50.cents . both are labeled stenocereus. One I'm positive is a stenocereus the other not so sure. Most of the cacti were swapped out of other pots and were clearly wrong.. Any help Identifying would be great.
    This is the one I'm sure is stenocereus.. Pruinosus I think 0115171701.jpg This one here I'm not sure about. Peanut hybrid maybe? 0115171701a.jpg

    The trichocereus have more rows of thorns. It might be cereus rapondus.
