Description: The Bolivian Torch cactus is a species of cacti that grow in the high mountain ranges of the bolivian Andes. These cacti can grow up to 5 meters in height and have a pale blue, greyish hue. Its thorns can grow up to 10cm in length and have a yellow-brown color.

The amount of mescaline inside the Bolivian Torch may not be as high as the Peruvian Torch or San Pedro cacti, but this species is the only one that naturally contains MAO-inhibitors. These enzymes prevent the Mescaline from breaking down in the stomach, which results in a longer and extended journey upon ingestion.

As the name may suggest, the cactus originated in the Bolivian Andes, and its effects are considered to be a torch of light in ones heart and mind.

These South-American cacti have an extensive history in shamanic culture. The most ancient signs of ritual use date back to 2000 years ago. Since the beginning of civilization in the Andes region, local shamans were using these cacti as part of their rituals, hailing the cactus as the “Materia Prima’. It was used not only as a religious sacrament, but also as a shamanic medicine.

Unlike the Peyote cactus and the psilocybin mushrooms, the use of these cacti was not punished by the catholic inquisition

Cultivation: Bolivian Torch cacti love a spot with a lot of sun. A window  on the south is the best, or in summertime you can place them outside on a terrace in the full sun.

These cacti have a good resistance to high and low temperatures, although they do not like temperatures above 60 degrees Celsius.

Like most cacti, Bolivian Torch cacti are resistant against dry periods. During the growth-season, water them once every two weeks by soaking the soil completely.
