    SWIM bought 5 rather small "Trichocereus pasacana" recently nad just found out that they contain a mescaline like Phenethylamine named 4-Hydroxy-N,N,N-Trimethyl-Phenethylamine ("Psychoaktive Kakteen", Markus Berger 2002).
    I found a thread claiming the pasacana contains hordenine - it is the same substance?

    Now I'm wondering if anyone has some expirience with this substance/species. What are the effects, how high would be a dose (substance or fresh cactus)?

    As this species doesn't contain any mescaline it should be legal to make an extract, right? The standard extraction should work too...

    The "Trichocereus pasacana" does contain hordenine but in a very low dosage. That's below 10mg per 100g (fresh) weigth.

    Also I didn't find any information about the effects of hordenine except that it's a potent phenethylamine.
