Details

Found naturally in the crown of a spineless cactus native to Mexico and the United States, peyote, also known as the "Divine Herb" and "Devil's Root," has been used for centuries as a hallucinogenic drug. The active substance in peyote is mescaline, which has a bitter taste and can cause changes in perception, mood, and sense of time. Peyote and Mescaline provides a useful and detailed survey of this powerful hallucinogen and its main active chemical. M. Foster Olive outlines the history of peyote use in North America, the pharmacology of mescaline and its actions in the brain, medicinal uses of peyote, and possible problems associated with using the drug, including physical and psychological side effects. Full-color photographs and illustrations, a glossary, sidebars, and other features supply additional facts for those researching this topic.
