This San Pedro cactus, is growing in the beautiful Andes Mountains of Ecuador and Peru on an altitude of approximately 2000–3000 m. It is also found in Argentina, Bolivia and Chile, and it is cultivated in other parts of the world.
The San Pedro is famous for it's mescaline and becaus it is a very fast growing cacti. It's Ethno botanical name is Echinopsis pachanoi (syn. Trichocereus pachanoi)
Uses for it include traditional medicine and traditional veterinary medicine, and it is widely grown as an decorative cactus. It has been used for healing and religious divination in the Andes Mountains region for over 3000 years
The San Pedro cactus contains several alkaloids, including the well known mescaline (0.21–1.8%) There are numerous mescaline extraction techniques, simple (simmering in water 5 to 7 hours) and complex (such as an acid-base extraction), the latter technique yielding a material with a significantly higher concentration of mescaline.
In most countries it is legal to cultivate the San Pedro cactus, but in countries where possession of mescaline and related compounds is illegal and highly penalized, cultivation for the purposes of consumption is most likely illegal and also highly penalized.
This is the case in: the USA, Australia, Canada, Sweden, Germany, New Zealand, and Norway, where it is currently legal to cultivate the San Pedro cactus for gardening and ornamental purposes, but not for consumption.

I can comment that the instructions are somewhat unclear. Especially the part about sterilizing the soil. I don't have a microwave and used the oven. the instruction says 60 minutes in the oven without any indication at what temperature. I had to find out that information elsewhere and the answer is 82-93 C. I had to buy a thermometer (that goes to 150C) to put in the oven and stand guard since the thermostat for the oven is not that accurate to maintain 82-93C. When it got too hot I opened the oven door...etc.
Also the plastic container cracked, not sure if I did it or it was broken during transport. Its very fragile so be careful with it. I then used a tupperware instead and it is even better since it is transparent from the sides also. (Posted on 3/2/2020)
