its a cactus from the desert of northern mexico and southern usa. Contains mescaline and is highly halucinogenic in the five senses. Has been used for ritual and spiritual purposes for thowsands of years by the Huixol and Taraumara indians of northern mexico as well as by the indians of the arizona desert. The spirit of peyote is very old, he is Don Juan, a wise old man that takes the consumer of peyote into the higher dimention of the world, where he acquires great wisdom and sees the creation of the cosmos through vivid visions. In this, it is very different from magic mushrooms (psylocybes), that are a young spirit, the children of the god(teonacatl), they induce states of euphoria and childlike emocional flashbacks.
