I've tried cactus in the past with no luck, so I went into this session with the intention of taking as much as it took to see God. I'm female-bodied and have been chronically ill for an extended period of time with Ulcerative Colitis.
The cactus was guaranteed to work, as a friend had very recently taken 1 gram and started talking to dead people.
I started with approximately 4 grams of dried san pedro cactus on an empty stomach. At 1 hour in, only a very mild body high was experienced for approximately 5 minutes.
1.5 grams were further ingested, then 1 gram every 45 minutes until 9.5 grams were ingested total (final gram was saguaro). 45 minutes later, one extra large shroom was consumed. 2 whippets were consumed between the second and third dose with no potentiating effects.
Approximately half an hour later the shroom began to take effect with no noticeable effects from the cactus. Nothing was consumed until right before the peak (handful of cheetos). Visuals were very mild with faint rainbow tracers and there was significant tightness between my shoulders due to the shroom strain.
Approximately 4 hours later my hands began to feel stiff and gummy. My hands swelled up (no heat, no itching) and the left had a bright red spot at the middle knuckle that spread to the others. We assumed it was due to the cactus, swelling was gone by the next morning.
However, the next morning also showed that my colon had ulcerated (blood, no mucus) for the first time in almost three years. I'm writing this on the second morning post-consumption and the ulcers have not closed. Shrooms have never caused me post-trip distress so I have to assume it was caused by the cactus or by the mix.
Due to my experiences, I have to assume that cactus is not Ulcerative Colitis or SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) friendly and will not be consumed again both for my apparent resistance and for the sake of my gut.
[Reported Dose: "App. 9.5 gram cactus total, app. 2.5 grams shrooms, 2 whippets"]
