Trichocereus pachanoi — known as San Pedro cactus or Huachuma— is a fast-growing columnar cactus that has been used for healing and religious divination in the Andes Mountains region for over 3,000 years.
The name is attributed to the belief that just as St Peter holds the keys to heaven, the effects of the cactus allows one “to reach heaven while still on earth.”
It is sometimes confused with its close relative, Echinopsis peruviana (Peruvian torch cactus).
We also carry Peruvian Torch which some find a better value.
*Note: Whole San Pedro is much harder/costlier to source so this is reflected in the price. We also have it available in powdered form with free lettermail shipping (no tracking is provided and the packaging may differ to fit the size requirements).
