Smoking Mescaline Tar

I am a 19 year old attending a local college for general education and has had countless psychedelic experiences prior to smoking the tar of some san pedro as well as peruvian torch. Approximately 35 LSD experience the most ingested at one time being 10 blotter hits, countless mushroom trips and ecstasy trips, one san pedro experience (orally in gel caps) one 2c-e trip and one what I believes was a 2c-I trip as well as 2 salvia trips (cannabis regularly). Enough to say I am psychedelically experienced at least.

I and my brother obtained some san pedro cactus cuttings along with some torch cuttings. Blended it, heated it strained it then evaporated the strained matter into tar. I tried about 5 times smoking this tar each time around 25-50 puffs through a brass pipe each time with similar effects.

The effects were clearly that of mescaline not placebo. The effects of a euphoric sense of oneness could be felt after the first few drags. By around 50 drags and about 45 minutes later color shifts began occurring along with walls and carpets beginning to breath in unison. At one point every time I would breathe the carpet under my feet would change a different color and began swaying to and fro.

The effects lasted around 2 hours and the come down was easy. No feeling unfulfilled or wanting more, a very gentle ease down. There was no throwing up as in a usual mescaline trip and interestingly to me at least; the 'spirit' of the cacti did not seem to be prominent if at all there.

In my opinion; yes it is worth it and yes it really does work, nicely. My brother commented it was harsh on his lungs and throat whereas I had no such problems after smoking 10 times the amount as the brother. Differences in people.
