    About 18 inches of 3.5" alleged Trichocereus Peruvianus, cut from a
    nice 2 - 3 footer at a local hardware/garden center. Split between me
    and my partner. We cut it up and ate it straight. Very cucumber-like in
    taste. Not bitter at all. Red flag?


    Initial "onset" stuff was probably placebo effect.

    Not sure if we got TP at all -- or maybe just a verrrrrrrry weak TP. Big disappointment.

    Learned something though: don't cut off the spines by notching at each
    cluster (makes peeling a real pain). Do like the shaman on Erowid and
    make a nice long slice on either side of each row of clusters. AND
    refrigerate before peeling. Makes it sooooo much easier.

    Oh -- one more thing -- our TP made an EXCELLENT laxative. Maybe too good. [​IMG]

    I have noticed that the stronger the alkaloid content the harder it is to eat raw and was unable to finish eating a couple of times and resorted to extractions (chemical)to get it down.
