Please avoid harvesting peyote in its natural habitat.

Peyote populations are rapidly declining in nature due to over-harvesting by non-indigenous peoples. As a result, it is currently a threatened species.[1][2] Those who wish to consume peyote are encouraged to grow their own or use alternative mescaline-containing cactus species such as San Pedro or Peruvian Torch.

Peyote (Lophophora williamsii) is a psychedelic cactus in the Lophophora genus. It contains mescaline and pellotine among other psychoactive alkaloids.[3]
