The use of hallucinogenic cacti, such as Peyote or San Pedro, has been used for thousands of years by the native peoples of the Americas. The main active ingredient is mescaline, which Aldous Huxley famously wrote about in his book, The Doors of Perception, though they have been also been found to have other psychoactive alkaloids. The band The Doors took their name from Huxley's book. The title of the book was taken from a William Blake quote “If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite”
The Peyote Cacti is probably the most well known of all hallucinogenic cacti, it has the highest concentrate of Mescaline they are very slow growing, taking up to 10 years to grow to the size of a small apple.
