I perfer to drink it all, as long as its warm and of a tea like consistancy it should be fine on your stomach, (when done evaping make sure its a lil less than a pint or a cup and then pour into a jar add 3 ice cubes and let them melt then slam it) although I personally have never drank the tea made from a trichocereus inermis please post a report of its content and trip (a bio assay), depending on potency of that cutting and its thickness, it should do you good with the whole thing. Happy trails man.

Could you use powered cactus instead of fresh?

Depends on how many doses you want to make. Whatever you don't use can be stored in the fridge for a week or so and can be frozen for long term storage.
Look at the dosage chart for Mescaline. It's here and at Erowid.
Ask Irish to repost his cactus alkaloid profile, but P.Torch is supposed to be roughly .887% of dry weight. So just a little under 1%
Do the math for what you have and how many doses you are trying to prepare.
60-80 g is usually a nice dose and 100g is usually enough to really give you a good trip. Any higher and you start getting into your deeper experiences.
It all depends on your weight, metabolism and how certain substances work w/ you. What might make a weak dose for one might be super heavy for another.
Order enough dried cactus to do several trips and see what your dosage is and then go from there.
Mescaline is generally pretty easy on you. Even at high doses it is pretty gentle. Not as much confusion when peaking like LSD can bring at peak.

your first time yeah a foot of bridgesii will do the trick man, you'll want say a cutting 12" long and maybe 2 1/2 to 3 inches thick, that should get you to where you want to go. If you have bridgesii why even bother with the torch powder man, just extract the mesc from it and use the bridgesii for all your tea endeavors.

Strain it through a T-shirt as best as possible and then re-simmer the material to make sure you get it all and then reduce to a nice quick-chuggable size.
The material should be almost white/colorless when you toss it.
60 might not blow your mind but you should get enough to make it worth doing. You should certainly feel it. Even a hardhead like myself should feel 60g.
Make sure you don't have any issues w/ MAOIs and if not enjoy your Bridgesii's! Just make sure you order enough at one time for several doses. The cuttings can vary in potency. Make a large batch of tea so that all the tea is equally potent. Freeze doses that are going to be kept for more than a week or so. Best of luck to you!

Absolutely.


Just a little heads up.....the idea of making a tea from powdered cactus is a TERRIBLE idea...it is nearly impossible to strain even with a thin coffee filter. The shit looks like it would kill you if you drank it and on top of that it's a fuckin mess!!!!

So just in case you was thinking of doin a tea from powdered cactus DONT DO IT!!! It's not worth it!!!:mistrust::eusa_snoo

That's why I suggested straining it through a T-shirt.
If you get chips don't powder them but tea can be made from powder, it is just harder to strain.
You asked if it can be done that way, not if it was the best way. You can eat the cactus too but not many do that.

And since you didn't have enough to do any true extractions, your only options were tea which is hard to drink down. Or to cap up that powder. If you didn't like swilling the tea, your stomach would have appreciated all those caps popping in your stomach even less.
Especially when you consider it is hard to get more than 1g in each cap and you end up having to take roughly 60-80 caps.

Nobody said it would be easy.
